House of Smiths Home Tour – Kitchen and Living Room

by Shelley SmithJuly 26, 2012

For the last part of our home tour I wanted to share our main living area! The living room and kitchen. This is the most trafficked area in our home 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 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!

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! And I love our painted door.

If you’re looking to change your homes style, remember…taking your space through an extensive style shift takes lots of time, patience and trial and error. It can be overwhelming, so 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” while in the process.
