We are finally in Leo season! Being a Leo means being bright, fun, and eccentric. I am a Leo and love the bright colors as well as everything they stand for. If you are looking to decorate your home during this season, why not try some power colors to celebrate the fire signs! This week on the blog is all about celebrating these fire signs and learning how to take the Leo personality and incorporate it into your interior design.

Leo and the Fire Signs

Leo Horoscope Colors. Fire Colors, gold, red, orange

Leo’s belong to the fire sign classification along with their Aries and Sagittarius cousins.

“The element of Fire can’t be ignored. Fire gives light and warmth. Without it, there’s no chance at life. Fire signs are excitable, vital and enthusiastic…Let’s keep it real … Fire signs know exactly the effect they’re having on the rest of us. They’re lighting up our lives!” – Maria DeSimone of Tarot.com

Leo Color Palette

Known for being bubbly, eccentric, and nothing but their true selves, Leo’s are born between July 23rd and August 22nd. Orange is the primary color of their personality, but red and gold are also associated with the sign.

Leo’s Power Colors

Before we dive into those colors, let’s talk about what power colors are. Power colors stem from the animal that represents the Leo, a lion, and our signature star, the sun. Lions are the king of the jungle and are not meant to be messed with. The sun is one of the most powerful stars in the sky. These two entities combined make Leo’s authoritative, energetic, and radiating energy.

While Leo’s can be fun and bubbly, they also have a dark side. They love attention and should be treated with respect. Transitioning this to colors, the most common form of their personality color, orange, is burnt orange. But be careful. A Leo can be impatient and blunt, but never malicious unless you give them a reason to be.

The Color of the Summer

Leo’s bright and warm personalities appear in the color orange, which is the main color of this zodiac sign. They thrive during the summertime but do not do so well in the cold. Orange represents this sign the best because this lively and warm color replicates the fire within them.

Orange in Your Home

There’s nothing more head-turning than the color orange, and this bold color is just what a Leo needs to feel at home. Go for a more burnt orange as it best represents this fire sign in a sofa or other home accents for a look that will both inspire and ground a Leo.

The Color of the Sun

The color red is essential in the Leo color palette. Red is statistically proven to catch the eye the most, and this is exactly what a Leo is looking for. This fire sign loves to be the center of attention, and red will help accomplish this goal.

Red In Your Home

When incorporating red into your home, it may seem a little difficult because it is such a bold color. When choosing to use one of these warm colors, you have to be careful because they can make the room feel smaller. Try using red as an accent color in pillows, light fixtures, or chairs. Pairing this color with cool tones such as gray, tan, or white can make your home stand out.

The Color of the Lion

The lion represents all things power and confidence; this is where Leo’s get their traits. Gold reflects confidence and determination. The overwhelming brilliance of gold gives off the impression of an unbeatable character, unattainable superiority, and royalty. Leo’s are naturally attracted to this color, which radiates extreme positivity. It oozes power and strength, imagination, creativity, and intuition.

Gold In Your Home

When incorporating gold into your home, it is important to keep in mind that it has the same effect as the warm colors mentioned above. Gold is a color that you can explore your creativity. Try using gold adornments, accent pillows, curtains, or even rugs!
