Create A Cozy Outdoor Space

As the weather warms up, we will look for any reason to be outdoors. Summer entertaining is fun and a great excuse to move the party outside. Choosing comfortable outdoor seating and bright outdoor pillows and throws are a must for summer nights. At John Elliott Interiors, we can help you create a space that ties your indoor décor to the outdoors. Here are some great ways to create your dream outdoor space:
  • Brighten up the space with an outdoor rug
  • Add outdoor lights for entertaining evenings
  • Light a summery scented candle
  • Get an umbrella for your outdoor table
  • Add potted plants and hanging planters
  • Make your own outdoor bar

Play Up the Views

At the Lake of the Ozarks, the beautiful views should be a primary focus this summer. Make the most of your waterfront views by keeping the windows and sliding doors free of draperies. Keeping the color scheme simple will bring light into your home for everyone to enjoy. If you have big windows, you can arrange the furniture in your home to prioritize the views from inside.

Bring Summer into Your Kitchen

Summertime comes with bright colors, and fresh happy scents. As we tend to be outdoors during the summer months, it can be hard to make your kitchen a place that has a summertime feel. Here are some great ways to spruce up your kitchen this summer:
  • Use citrus fruit as decorations
  • Add some colorful wall art
  • Bring in plants to liven things up
  • Add floral center pieces

Create a Welcoming Front Door Entry Space

Summer brings many fun events and is a busy time of year. Creating an attractive front door space can be a fun way to reflect your personal style and make you feel happy and comfortable as you walk through the door. You also want your guests to feel welcome - This space sets the tone for the rest of your home! Here are some simple ways to create an enjoyable summer entryway in your home:
  • Add potted plants
  • Choose a floral front door wreath
  • Create a gallery wall
  • Add a rug
  • Place a bench or chair

Build a Backyard Bonfire

There is nothing like the warmth and fun of sitting around a fire with family and friends. Bonfires in your own backyard can make for the ideal backyard party. When decorating your outdoor space, it is important to create a visual that looks inviting as you walk up to the outdoor firepit area. Choosing a color scheme for your outdoor décor will help set the mood for fun and special times. Using furniture that looks good during the day and night is always a plus, and you can accessorize with rugs and lanterns. John Elliott Interiors is ready to help you create your outdoor ambiance!
