Classic Decorations for This Holiday Season


Decorating for the holidays is a fun tradition to share with your family. While some holidays offer obvious decoration ideas, others can be more difficult to derive inspiration from because they are so subtle. As the best interior design company at the Lake of the Ozarks, John Elliott Interiors has some great ideas and tips on how to decorate your home for the holidays while still keeping your style clean and chic.


It can be difficult to decorate for Halloween without resorting to cheesy childish decorations. Sometimes these decorations make for a great time, and can attract a lot of visitors to your home on Halloween night. But if you are looking for less of a trick and more of a treat, we have a few decorating ideas for a classic interpretation of Halloween.

If you feel brave and want to go with a spooky feel, choose Victorian themed pieces, dark textured fabrics, aged candles, and smoke stained glass as accents in your current home design.
For a lighter take on Halloween, stick to a bright, neutral palette of grey, cream, and white. White pumpkins hearken to the Halloween theme while also working with your traditional fall season decor.


The Thanksgiving holiday is about gratefulness, warmth, and giving. We love the idea of reflecting the spirit of the holiday in your home decor! Bright fall leaves, earthy pine cones, and rustic textured materials are great foundations for a beautiful fall interior design that will wow your guests and make them feel warm and welcomed. Create a fall wreath reminiscent of your interior decor to greet your guests on their way into your home. Carry the theme throughout your home in small glimpses for a cohesive look. Your guests will appreciate your attention to detail as they enjoy spending time in your home giving thanks.


Bright lights, cheerful colors, and sentimental ornaments highlight the Christmas season with joy! For a warm, rustic take on the holiday, use white Christmas lights, candles, cinnamon sticks, and dried citrus in your home decor. We love the way this style brings us back to years past and the age-old tradition of placing oranges in Christmas stockings as a rare, delicious gift.

Have fun with the season and start a new tradition with loved ones centered around decorating. Get hot cocoa and pick out your Christmas tree together. Pop some popcorn and string it together for an authentic old-time tree decoration.
