Aries are very passionate and independent. You don't like to put your stamp of approval on something unless you absolutely love it. So, go ahead and paint your bathroom that bold shade of red you've been eyeing. It'll have you embracing your fire-sign energy as soon as you wake up and after a long day. Try adding dark wood furniture or black steel accents for contrast.

Taurus: Sage Green

As an earth sign, Taurus is very connected with nature. You feel most at ease when you're spending time in your garden or taking a walk in the park. So, it makes sense that the right paint color for your bathroom is a soft sage green. Add some humidity-loving plants, and you'll have yourself a self-made sanctuary that you won't want to leave.
