How to Design for Leos

Updated: Jun 25, 2022

It’s soon to be Leo season and you don’t need to be into astrology to already know that. Practically any Leo sun sign will be boasting about their upcoming birthday. This zodiac sign might be a little bummed this year with quarantines and shutdowns, as a Leo LOVES throwing parties and being seen.

While this extroverted sun sign might be staying home this month, that doesn't mean they should contain their boldness. How about a fun home project that sparks that fire sign's creativity and let's their personality shine? Especially with zoom calls and video chats, it's a perfect way for a Leo to get a little more noticed. Learn about the tips behind designing a space for Leo's energy.


Bold Color

As the fixed fire sign, Leos are quite magnetic. They are not afraid of standing out in a crowd and in fact prefer to. That is why bold colors scream Leo energy. Highly saturated colors such as flamingo pinks, tangerine orange, and lemon yellow connect to their warm and firey nature. However, since Leos are also a royal creature, don’t forget about those jewel tones such as emerald greens, teals, and purples.

Brass Fixtures

Leos are ruled by the sun. The sun’s energy is very Yang, or active. As a planet, the sun represents the self, which is why Leos are definitely ones to self-indulge and pamper themselves in the finer things. Gold is one of their colors, and as such, adding gold colored fixtures, such as brass to a Leo design helps turn their home into a palace.

Luxurious Fabrics 

Since Leos love luxury, add rich fabrics into your design. Silks, velvets, and satins add that soft feel and vibrant sheen. While you can’t go wrong with solid patterns, some regal designs include damask and toil de jour. A while this pattern may not be seen as classy (quite the opposite), a Leo knowns how to make an animal print work. We are talking about the king of the jungle after all.


Each one of the zodiac signs not only has a ruling planet and element, but a ruling organ as well. For Leos it is the heart. It makes sense seeing as how they are so courageous, warm, passionate, and genuine. In Feng Shui, the heart of the home is the kitchen and ruled by the fire element….same as Leos! Leos love cooking. It’s not only a source of creativity, but a social activity (if you’ve never been to a Leo dinner party then you’re missing out). Focus on creating a dynamic kitchen for a Leo to thrive in.
