Designer Elizabeth Schulz of Black Forest Design & Build, has completed the renovation of a home in Millersville, Pennsylvania, that dates back to 1967 when it was originally built by Emerson Frey, owner of locally famous iced tea manufacturer, Turkey Hill.
The present owners, a local realtor team, contacted Beth to bring their rancher into the 21st century and make the social areas into an open floor plan.
Let’s take a look at the different rooms that were renovated…
The Living Room
The original living room had sage green walls, dark beams, a stone fireplace, window treatments, and carpeted floor.
To create a more cohesive space, Beth and her team opened up the space between the kitchen and the living room. By keeping the original fireplace, they created a cozy area for relaxing, which makes the space feel warm and inviting.
Small details like the dark painted window sashes create a stark, but eye-popping contrast of the new white walls and ceiling.
The Dining Area
Adjacent to the living room is the dining room, where a chandelier used to hang above the dining table and dark upholstered chairs.
