Dreaming of such a process is usually a good omen. Beautification can symbolize ways in which you should reorganize your life. A big part of decorating dreams is occupied by colors. Colors have various meanings.

However the context matters too, since the dream is mainly about changing old patterns. Another important aspect covers the object that is being decorated. It can be a house, a piece of furniture or a person.

If you are decorating in your dream it generally means that the process of building something new from scratch is around the corner.

Detailed dream interpretation

The colors in your dream of decorating are important and have various meanings. For example, if you are painting white walls then this shows how you can be pure and selfless. If the walls are painted in yellow, this represents self-pity. Decorating in blue means easy-going feelings. If you dream of decorating with paint rather than wallpaper, it usually means that things are going to become difficult with a close relative.

Decorating with wallpaper means you will make a wrong move or you will take a faulty decision. If the wallpaper is broken, a small detail from a tumultuous past is about to come forth. If you dream that you cannot fix the wallpaper on the wall, somebody will interfere in your private life. His or her curiosity will exhaust you.

If you dream of redecorating upholstery it usually means you will discover a new hidden talent, and that you will do your daily work with interest and pleasure.

The type of house that you are decorating reflects your self-image. If in your dream you are examining the upper rooms of the house and you are making plans about redecorating them, this will enable you to have a better understanding of some important aspects of your waking life. The upper part of the house signifies spirituality and enlightenment. If in your dream you are humbly accepting a simpler way of beautifying your room, it means that at this point you are open and ready to invite some spirituality in your waking life. You should probably take the sign as it may appear and get started on a spiritual path.

If you are observing a house being decorated by somebody else, then this shows that you need to reorganize things in your life, especially if in the dream you have no words or your opinion about the decoration is not being listened or followed. It may also mean that you will encounter a situation in which you could thing you are in control, but this is not the case. Such a situation should not come as a surprise anymore, since you probably already know this is about to happen, and that it is out of your hands. You should probably let it go.

If you dream about decorating or beautifying yourself, this reflects some kind of confidence and trust in your own abilities. If you are decorating a bride, this can foretell some sadness coming your way, but there is no immediate serious issue associated with this feeling. It can simply be a melancholic state. It can also mean spiritual acceptance.
