“The kitchen island is original to the home. It was given a facelift with a coat of paint and a new butcher block top,” says Liz. Light fixtures and additional cabinetry was added by the couple.Some of the original cabinets were painted white, while new countertops were added. Wood ceiling beams were added to add warmth to the space.
“We added dutch doors to the back sitting room, which used to be the ‘maid’s quarters’ in the original home” shares Liz. “The dogs hang out there now and we wanted them to not feel closed in and be able to hear us in the kitchen” she adds. A chalkboard writing area is added to the space for a fun twist.
The master bedroom is elegantly filled with a mixture of blue and golds with pops of red. All fixtures and floors were added to the space during the home’s renovation.
