Let us begin by highlighting a few things to think about before you get started, once you've crossed these off your list - you'll be ready to invest in the right furniture pieces from John Elliott Interiors.

1. Choose Your Style

If you find articulating your design preferences difficult, not to worry. The simplest way to define your style is by looking at photos of other homes. Whether you save them to your Pintrest board or tear the pages from a magazine, keeping your photos in one spot is easiest. After you've collected several images, sit down and compare them. Ask yourself what the common denominators are. What are your favorite aspects in terms of color, furniture style, pattern and object coverage. Keep in mind the space you're living in and the limitations that might impose, as well. 

2. Create A Budget

Determine your budget so the amount you plan to spend is defined. Are you planning to do one room at a time or the whole house at once? 

3. Settle On A Color Palette 

We talked a little about this in last weeks blog. Whether you're drawing inspiration from your flooring, walls, or a piece of art - find a color you love and start there. Once you have your palette established, let the rest of the decor trickle from that. John Elliott Interiors has the luxury furniture and accessories to help give your lake home the "wow" factor. 

4. Picking Paint

Paint is an inexpensive way to personalize your space. Atmosphere, mood and energy can all be altered with paint. You don't have to choose a bold color but don't be afraid of committing to color!

5. Let The Light Shine In

If you're decorating your lake home, chances are you have a beautiful view of our incredible Lake of the Ozarks. If your room gets a lot of sun, me mindful of color. You don't want window treatments and furniture to fade - consider  window tinting options to help with this. When framing the windows that give you that great view, consider function and elegance. 

6. Furniture And Floor Space

Every room has a focal point - that spot that begs attention when we first enter the room. Don't be afraid of making a statement with furniture. If you have a large room, begin by placing your furniture in the middle of the room - use rugs to create a comfortable feeling and use accessories and art to frame your focal point. You can play around with the placement of your furnishings. 

5. Mix Old With New

Once you've chosen the unique furnishings you can't live without, consider including some antiques or sentimental pieces you love. These pieces can give your rooms personality and depth. Although it's true that second homes at the Lake of the Ozarks don't always require this touch and John Elliott Interiors can help achieve a comfortable look with new pieces.
