4 Design Secrets For Your Home


Creating a home isn't as easy as it sounds. It's finding the balance between a beautiful and functional space. A place that you can feel proud of, but also a place that you can live in day to day. At John Elliott Interiors we make YOUR space a priority, and from the kitchen to the bedrooms - we can help you create the space you've always dreamt of. Here are a few of the design secrets we've learned over the years that you can use to make your space incredible.

Design Secrets for Your Space

"Start your living room furniture plan with the best seat in the room and work from there." DD Allen
If you don't know how to arrange your furniture, start by finding the best spot in the room. Do you have a window that overlooks the lake? Maybe you have a rustic stone fireplace that is equally matched in beauty and warmth. Whatever you have in your space that is where you want to look - place your furniture around that.

"Every room needs a touch of black, just as it needs at least one antique piece." Jan Showers
If you want to make the design in your home pop - adding black can be just the thing. From pretty statues, a piece of furniture, or even a frame around your art - at John Elliott Interiors, we can help you find the perfect black piece for your home.

"The ideal height to hang your flat-screen TV is at eye level when you're in viewing position. The ideal viewing distance is 1 1/2 times the size of your flat screen." - Jean Larette
For many families, the television plays a huge role in your home. You enjoy evenings around it, plan viewing events around it - so why not make sure that it's in a perfect position. Use this as a quick guidline.

"People don't take into account how they'll look in a room when choosing a color. I just did an apartment where the woman has blue eyes with aa bit of purple tin to them, so everything is lavender to purple. She simply glows. And I recently did an orange foyer. I chose a particular shade of orange because my client has brown hair, and brunettes look great in orange. Then I took that exact same orange - not just any orange, that exact shade - and ran in through the house. It keeps popping up in different ways. A color has got to move - it can't look like it's landed." Stan Topol
Have you ever considered painting your home a color that looks good on you? It seems so simple, but so powerful when you think about it. What colors do you love? What colors do you hate? These can have an impact on not only how you feel in a room, but how you look as well!
