We're headed into my favorite part of the Gemini season! Alright, so Gemini season technically started May 21st and I could have posted this then... Shoot me, I'm biased to the month of June.
I've always loved the month of June. It brings so many wonderful things - the official start to summer (fellow Arizonan's can ignore this), many exciting sporting events like the Stanley Cup Finals, NBA Finals, Triple Crown, etc. And last but certainly not least, the first day of June means my birthday is just 6 days away...
With all that excitement, I'm quite eager to share with you a little bit about us Geminis.
I'm a big fan of anything relating to Astrology. If you take the time, you'll see it's easy to become engrossed by. When you start to understand how it pertains to you, you'll see that somethings just make sense and some things are down right freaky.
So to kick it off, I'm going to get into my sign: who we are and how it fits right in with our design, decorating styles.
What makes a Gemini, a Gemini?
"The constellation of Gemini depicts a set of twins. Gemini is the legendary dualistic sign of the zodiac and is rumored to have almost a split persona, thus channeling the twin depiction. However, this dualism isn't as simple as a personality split. Oftentimes, what is believed by others to be a dual personality is really a discrepancy between how the Gemini would like to be seen, and how he really is."

The Gemini Profile -
- Passionate, especially for novelty

Design as a Gemini
Just like the idea of Feng Shui, there are designers that take in account their client's astrological sign. Some call it "Homestrology". They can gather insight and an understanding into tidbits about their client, maybe even parts that their client didn't even know about themselves.
Although design and decorating is subjective, the overall Decor profile of a Gemini is pretty spot on if I do say so myself -
- Bright colors, accents
- Bold patterns
- Modern style elements
- Love entertaining, creating conversational areas
- Appreciate good books, typography
We're fascinated by new trends or even creating our own. Our main living spaces must be multi functional and laid out for socializing, whether a small get together or large party. In the bedroom, we dig simple and unfussy with plenty of room for their wardrobe. Gemini's are drawn to a more modern look, vibrant colors, simple lines and metallics.
Here are some of my favorite, oh so Gemini looks and accessories:
Happy Birthday fellow Geminis!
We may be double the trouble, but we're also double the fun.
You and your twin keep doing your thing!
