Peek Inside a Blogger's Glamorous Home Re-vamp

Going light and airy are just a few of the tricks Megan of For All Things Lovely used to blend his and her styles after the wedding. Out with the dark, leather furniture and in with light neutrals and the perfect gallery wall are the name of this game. Her entire home got a major infusion of style and the result is what she likes to call french farmhouse with a modern flair. See more captured by Angela Cox here.
After just over a year of redecorating our space, it's finally complete and we couldn't be happier with it! From the beginning, John and I knew that we wanted to brighten things up a bit. Our decor was cozy and inviting, but also dark with touches of leather (aka, J talked me into the furniture when we got married) and too many patterns.
So when we purged, we really purged! From tans and browns to whites and grey, we're in love with the way it turned out! The overall theme of our home would have to be french farmhouse with a modern flair. As you'll see throughout each room, we love rustic, southern accents, but while keeping all of the decor light, bright and airy.
In the living room, we decided to go with all neutral tones. It's right off of our kitchen, so it's definitely an entertaining area, as well as the room we probably spend the most time in. I love the cozy look of two couches facing one other, plus it adds a lot of additional seating to our space.
To add personal touches to the room, we created a 'travel' wall of all the places/cities we've traveled to together. It's by far one of my favorite things in our home! With other details like gold mercury lamps, a marble coffee table, steer horns and a fiddle leaf fig, the room came together beautifully and feels so homey!

The dining room is MY favorite place to entertain because my favorite childhood memories always took place around the table. Enjoying a meal together, reminiscing about old stories, and sharing so many laughs make one memorable room! I knew I wanted to continue the light, grey tones into the dining room, while keeping the space livable, so we went with an oversized china cabinet and large rectangular table to really fill the space.
I am a dish hoarder, so the french, bistro style cabinet has been so useful! Filled with all of our glassware, flatware, and serving pieces and every day dishes, it really makes the room cozy and inviting. My favorite accents in this room have to be the chevron, cowhide rug (I searched for eight months for the perfect one!) and the white, french style chairs. The rustic detail of the table, cabinet and rug compliment the all white chairs and entertaining pieces perfectly!

Our kitchen was one of the rooms we completely ripped out and revamped when we first purchased our home in 2009. It was SO small, had army green tile floors and dark, oak cabinets. To say the kitchen needed a facelift is an understatement! So John and his dad worked tirelessly for about 3 months to build all new, custom cabinets, lay tile, and switched out all of the hardware/lighting.
If I knew we were staying in this house for a few more years, I would have marble countertops in a minute!! However, we're probably going to outgrow it before long, so everything we've done in the last year or so (other than paint) has been furniture and decor that we can pick up and take with us.
Anyways, my favorite things in this room have to be the blush pink Le Cruset (obviously) dutch oven and the coffee bar. We love to cook and entertain at home, so we spend a lot of time in this space as well!

Our entry way is quite small, however, I knew I wanted it to feel quaint and homey as soon as our guests walk through the door. I added a tall table by front door and a gold console table, full of fashion books. I hope to have an in-home office one day, large enough for bookshelves filled with them. My Prada print by the door is one of my favorite things in this space. Since Fashion is such a huge part of my life, I added little details all throughout our home.

And last, but definitely not least, our guest room. This is one room that we never put a ton of effort into until now. It was sort of the 'misfit' space with a bunch of hand-me-down furniture. When we decided to paint it the same color as the living room, I went a little crazy with finding the perfect decor. John and I LOVE antique/vintage furniture, so we knew we wanted to mix the old + the new in this space to really make it feel like cozy. 

We found this bed and dresser in an old, run down barn while antiquing one day and fell in love with it. It was so dusty, dirty and nearly falling apart, but with a little TLC and a new mirror in the dresser, it turned out so beautiful. (Plus, I love the story!) With a few light and airy details, this room turned out to be one of my favorites in our home and I know our guests will love it, too!
