Tips to Find a New Interior Design You Will Love Living In


The talented designers at our Lake of the Ozarks luxury furniture store are always happy to help you find an interior design style that you will love. We can start by showing you our favorite things for inspiration, but it's always best if you can come into John Elliott Interiors with some idea of what you personally like best. That way, the final room that we come up with will be one that you can absolutely love. 

Trying to figure out exactly what you want a room to look like can be overwhelming at first. A simple way to get started is to think about the types of things that make you happy. After all, you will be the one living in this space once everything is finished. It should be a place where you enjoy spending time and are excited to invite others to enjoy with you. Discover a few of your favorite things by taking a look at the following.

Your Current Interior Design
This is a great place to start. If you're ready for a new design, you obviously don't want to recreate what is already there, but it can give you clues about the new direction you want to take. Make a list of the things you no longer like about the room, but also make a list of the things that you still love. Look for common threads throughout your home, such as colors or patterns that are repeated often or shapes that stand out. Decide how you feel about each of these things, and that will help to point you in the direction you should go when you choose a new look for the room.   

Items You Collect
People tend to collect their favorite things, and things that you love are perfect items to surround yourself with in your home. This doesn't mean that you should fill every nook and cranny with your collection. Instead, see if there is a color or pattern among your collection that would translate well into your interior design. If there is, then the finished room will be a wonderful place to display pieces of your prized collection. Some of the new furniture that you choose can be pieces that will allow you to showcase those displays. 

Activities You Enjoy
Thinking about how you want to use the room you are redecorating will influence the types of furniture that you need for it. If it is going to be a quiet, relaxing spot where you go to unwind, you will need cozy furniture that you can curl up on. An entertainment center will be an important piece of furniture to focus on if your relaxation involves watching movies or playing video games, but if you prefer a room where you can turn off the electronics and get some reading done, then bookshelves and side tables will be much more important. For rooms that you will be doing a lot of entertaining in, you'll want pieces that flow well together and also are sturdy enough to take a lot of wear and tear and can be cleaned easily if needed.

Items That Catch Your Eye
Getting away from the things that you already have in your life, let's move on to new items that you may love but haven't discovered yet. As soon as you begin thinking about giving any room a brand new look, start paying more attention to other people's interior designs, the pieces you gravitate toward while you're out shopping, and the pages you pause on when you flip through design magazines. Start noticing the commonalities that all of these things share, and you are on your way to a look that you can love.

Following the ideas that we have shared above are an excellent way to get on track to finding a new interior design that you can be excited about spending time in. Bring those ideas with you when you meet with our interior designers at the Lake of the Ozarks, and together we will discover the perfect pieces to bring this new look to life. The John Elliott Interiors showroom is packed full of luxurious furniture and accessories to get your search started, but if you don't see exactly what you're looking for, let us know. There is a very good possibility that we know where to find it!

Let us help you create an interior for your life.
