Decor Tips

Decorate According to Your Enneagram!

Every Enneagram type and its decor style, explained! So come one, and come all – including you, 4’s!

Type 1: The Reformer

Decor: Organized, Bright, Airy

You have a sense of style, and you know it. Choose each piece in your home for its cleanness, sophistication and brightness to reflect your personality – monochrome colors and simple silhouettes will cater to your organizational proclivities!

Type 2: The Helper

Decor: Hospitable, Plush, Comfy

You know how to host, and your home decor is proof. The pieces in your home, after all, are chosen for how comfy they are – how invited and welcomed they’ll make your guests feel.

Type 3: The Achiever

Decor: Purposeful, Industrial, Multi-tasking

If you’re going to decorate your home, you’re going to make it worthwhile, and the first room you’re going for is the home office. Go for unfussy, to-the-point furniture designed to inspire and keep you on top of your goals – industrial style is a great place to start!

Type 4: The Individualist

Decor: Natural, Different, Bohemian

Nothing makes your skin crawl like “decorating your home the traditional way” – so march to your own drummer by doing the opposite: bringing the things that belong outside, in. Embrace an overflow of indoor plants, and take your furniture along for the ride by choosing pieces in earthy hues, natural textures and recycled or reclaimed materials.

Type 5: The Investigator

Decor: ‘Tucked Away,’ Curated, Soft

If there’s one thing Type 5’s need – it’s their own personal niche. Carve one out of a spare corner of a home office or hallway, and keep colors soft and calming. (After spending some time in there, you’ll emerge refreshed and ready to take on the day!)

Type 6: The Loyalist

Decor: Thoughtful, Traditional, Conversational

Your friends are for keeps and so is your style. You avoid fads and the latest trends, bringing pieces into your home slowly over time. Timeless colors and silhouettes are you trademarks!

Type 7: The Enthusiast

Decor: Colorful, Bold, Energizing

You infuse positive energy into any space you inhabit, so let your decor tell the same story. Incorporate splashes of warm, vibrant hues like reds and oranges. Let your loudest colors and patterns live through small pieces like throw pillows and tabletop decor – so that when you get bored of your choices after a year or two, refreshing them will be a breeze!

Type 8: The Challenger

Decor: Modern, Sleek, Defined

If there’s one thing a home should do, it’s reflect who we are, and make us feel, well, at home. It should bring out the best of us – and for type 8’s, this means challenging the status quo while remaining strong and ‘in line with the times.’ ‘Edgy savviness’ is a great way to describe your style; choose statement pieces that define the entire room, along with moody colors that resonate a little bit of mystery and defiance.

Type 9: The Peacemaker

Decor: Light, Fresh, Easygoing

You’re the most easygoing of all the Enneagram types, and your home feels harmonious and gentle. Incorporate cozy designs and simple accessories to invite a peaceful glow. Remember, too, to throw back the drapes to let the natural light in – because like natural light, you hold a quiet power that balances, renews and infuses every space it’s a part of with an energy as fresh as it is contagious.
