Home and Living had a friend stop by just recently and made us think what our design sensibilities would be like if we took direction from the stars. Be sure to visit the slideshow for photos of your star type products!
Written in the Stars
It’s unknown whether all the credit for astrology and astrological signs can be attributed to the Greeks, though they certainly put a lot of weight into the study of what the stars foretold. Thousands of years later, we are still intrigued by the thought that our personalities are determined as much by nature as they are nurture.
With this thought in mind we began thinking that design and product choice might be ascribed to the various traits specific to each astrological sign. If you believe that the stars tell us how we’ll behave, then it is not a leap to think that they might have an influence over what products are appropriate for our star signs.
Air signs: (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) have elemental traits such as inventiveness, creativity, originality and versatility.
