Hunter green, white, navy and gray are traditional tones that make for timeless pieces, and they blend well with the rich wood grains that define your spaces. Rather than following trends, you’d rather invest in a few ageless items, with particular interest for antiques, Mid-Century modern, Shaker and Balinese wood. Get inspired by these 14 traditional-style home decor ideas that are still cool.

Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
As an Aquarius, you’re all about breaking the rules. Eccentricity rules your decor, with design geared toward what makes you feel good instead of what is considered “right.” Your cutting-edge design means statement-making pieces in your home, but your watery essence ensures there are plenty of comforting, relaxed vibes, too. Calm, serene hues like blues and grays flow through your space, with whimsical patterns that might come off as busy on paper but make for a cozy space in reality. Mix practical core pieces, like a chic and modern couch, with antique and vintage accents that might not be practical but bring you joy.
Pisces (February 19–March 20)
An intuitive, free-spirited sign, Pisces veers away from the rules of decorating and embraces a more eclectic style of home decor. They prioritize serene sea colors and the soft hue of lavender, decorate with natural fibers and enjoy spaces meant for entertaining. Decor is meaningful to its core for the Pisces, and homes are decorated to achieve a Zen-like space both welcoming for guests as well as for the owner’s own peace of mind. Natural woven rugs, white linen, silk throw pillows and an L-shaped couch make for a flowing room. Knickknacks are also of the utmost importance, but never to overwhelm! The Pisces isn’t after clutter, rather a vision of coziness. You can expect a bookshelf riddled with vintage finds and a gallery wall that brings the outside in, featuring pressed flowers in frames. Pisces love hygge! Here’s how to add the cozy Swedish style to your home.
