Leo- July 22 to Aug 22
Ruled and influenced by the sun, those born under the astrological sign of Leo are often attracted by shades of shades of Gold, Burnt Orange and Yellow, as well as purples and mauves. Leo’s are known for their positivity and zest for life, and like to surround themselves with bright, happy themes and vibrant colour spectrums, with their natural creative flair ensuring that their surroundings are never run of the mill or boring. Whilst they are very independent, Leo’s like to be admired and appreciated, and so will ensure their living and working space contains artworks and objects that are bound to grab your attention and elicit a comment.
Symbolised by the Lion, Leo’s are indeed natural leaders, who energetically preside over their kingdoms. They are drawn to the new and extraordinary, and so will often lead the way when it comes to home interior, and general fashion trends, quickly redecorating and reinventing themselves and their environment in order to keep things fresh and interesting. These “Kings” are certainly seldom prepared to settle for second best, which can in some case lead to overspending as they indulge their passion for change – which is why our selection of affordable, premium quality wall art and clothing prints , are the perfect choice for this majestic star sign.
We have put together a few of our favourite pieces that are bound to attract those born between July 22nd and August 22nd.
