We're one zodiac sign away from the official beginning of summer and I don't know about you but I can definitely feel Gemini's ever changing energy starting to take over the more grounded and stable Taurus energy that we're now leaving behind. Gemini helps to break us out of routine and encourages us to bring newness into our lives, which can be both exciting and rewarding. But you don't have to be a Gemini to embrace change. You can bring in the mutable energy of this quirky sign by decorating your home for Gemini season.
Gemini Season Tip #1: Embrace a blank canvas
This tip may seem counterintuitive for those of you who know Geminis because you know they love change. But it's for this very reason that they should live in a space that is a blank canvas. This gives them the freedom to switch up their decor just as often as their mood changes! And you too can have more fun decorating by sticking to a neutral palette and bringing in different patterns and colors as the seasons (or your moods) change.
Glam Shui Tip: Try creating a neutral entryway and decorating it with a rotation of your favorite things.
Gemini Season Tip #2: When in Doubt, Double Up
Gemini's symbol is the twins, which gives a duality to their personality. They sometimes get a bad wrap for being two-faced or having two sides but you have to admit that their chameleon like qualities is what makes them interesting! The rule of three in decorating is a popular one – grouping three items together to make your space more interesting. But doubling up on an item can be just as interesting and visually appealing. Try two matching decorative pillows for your bed or two matching vases on your fireplace mantel. It will create symmetry and balance, something that Geminis could use!
Gemini Season Tip #3: Make Room for Guests
Gemini is the first air sign of the zodiac, which is part of the reason why many of them are social butterflies who value a great conversation. Many of them love entertaining and mixing their different social circles. A great way to encourage guests to mingle in your home is by taking the focus off of the television in your living area and setting your sofa and seats up to face each other around the coffee table. And if you have an outdoor living space, you can get a fire pit and some comfortable patio furniture so your guests won't ever want to leave. (photo via stephaniejeandesign.com)
Gemini Season Tip #4: Create a Library
Gemini's are naturally curious and usually well versed in a wide array of subjects. This is one of the reasons they are so good at conversing with people from all walks of life. Having books in your home on various subjects is a great way to tap into Gemini's energy and creating a home library is not only good for your personal education, it can look great too! If you don't have the luxury of dedicating an entire room to a library, invest in some stylish built-in bookshelves and have fun styling your books by grouping colors together and placing decorative items on and around them.

Gemini Season Tip #5: Step-up your Mental Agility Game
Gemini is ruled my Mercury the communication planet which means they spend a lot of time thinking. Many of them enjoy puzzles and/or other activities that require a lot of mental agility. This is a skill that everyone could benefit from so having games and items that work out your brain in your home like chess, crossword puzzles or a meditation area can help keep you sharp. Or if you're more of the creative type you can dedicate a portion of your space to crafting. The key is to just have fun! (via @fashionhippieloves)
