For the next part of our home tour I wanted to share our main living areas, the living room and kitchen. This is the area in our home that gets the most traffic by far, and they are both very closely connected, because of our homes completely open floor plan.
If you've been following along on our home tour this month then you know that our house was previously styled in a much darker, Tuscan-type look.
By simply changing (mostly) paint and adding new decor, we've transitioned into a considerably lighter, happier, airier feel. Listed below are all the ways that we accomplished this look in our main space.

Our kitchen nook received quite the makeover as well! With the addition of the beautiful blue-gray paint (Upward by Sherwin Williams) and these simple DIY decorative shelves, we've been able to customize this space from holiday to holiday and season to season!
The small kitchen rug was a purchase from Lowe's a few years back. I don't have any information on it, because there is no tag attached, but I'll keep my eye out, in case I see it again :)
One of our most favorite projects in this space would have to be our pantry makeover. This space is so much more beautiful and functional now! You can check out all the details in our post here, and more about our painted door here.
If you're looking to change your homes overall style, remember...taking your space through an extensive style shift takes lots of time, patience and trial and error. It can be overwhelming, so like I mentioned before, try focusing on taking it one little space at a time. Doing this will help you stay sane during the process and allow for you to not be living in a constant "construction zone".
