T'is the Season... to Decorate for Christmas!


After a wonderful time with your friends and family enjoying the Thanksgiving holiday and eating as much turkey and mashed potatoes as possible, it's officially time to begin the countdown to Christmas. This most wonderful time of the year is merely 26 days away! Turn up the carols and break out the Christmas decorations, John Elliott Interiors has the tips and inspiration you need this season for the perfect holiday ambiance in your home. Read on to learn more from the best interior design company at the Lake of the Ozarks!

White Christmas

Dreaming of a white Christmas? This elegant design choice is the age-old, beautiful theme. Think of bright whites, soft creams, sparkling decorations, and fluffy snow gracing your home this season. 

Sparkling, neutral Christmas decor is a beautiful way to bring warmth and light into your home. Decorate your tree with gold, silver, and white ornaments and soft white Christmas lights. This style will make your room feel warm and inviting with a pleasant glow that reflects light throughout the space.

Create a true winter wonderland with a Christmas village set up around the base of your tree this year. These magical setups used to be difficult to find, but now they are available in nearly every store where Christmas decorations can be found. Choose storefronts that resonate with you, add mirrored ponds with ice skaters and little snow-covered trees for an extra special touch. Even turn it into a tradition with your family by buying a new piece each year. 

Rustic Holiday

Feel like you've been transported to a simpler time with rustic, heart-warming decor throughout your home. Style your electric fireplace with a setup of real wood logs to give the feel of a natural fire. Instead of buying a tree from your local hardware store or going with a fake tree this year, make a trip to a local tree farm. There is something about choosing your tree from a field and chopping it down on your own. When you set the tree up in your home, break off a few sprigs and use them in the rest of your holiday decor throughout the house for a more authentic, farmhouse feel. 

Add checkered blankets and textured pillows to your living room decor to make the space feel more cozy and welcoming for your guests. Around the house, add little touches of rustic decor to pull the look together. Think hand-painted wood signs, bundles of white birch branches and springs of pine in metal jugs, clusters of pine cones around figurines of reindeer. There are so many wonderful options!


Christmastime reminds us of years past when we were bright-eyed children waiting for Santa to fill our stockings. Take advantage of the season, recreating your favorite childhood traditions. If you have a childhood ornament collection that you've been keeping in storage, dust off the boxes and decorate your tree with your favorite memories. Add special touches to the rest of your home decor with a red wagon to hold blankets for guests, or a wooden rocking horse set up by the fireplace.
