Today’s Feature Friday is one that I shared years ago, but it’s time for an update. Older houses are so much fun to explore and we have a fun one today. Kelly Elko from NJ lives in a 103 year old house in NJ and you will love the features and transformations in this home. Her blog name was Eclectically Vintage but she changed it to her name a few years ago. I’ve got brand new pics to share today so I hope you enjoy.
Here’s the house when they bought it. Pretty, right? Nothing wrong with the exterior at all, but they got busy and made it even better.
Wow, here it is now! Gorgeous, isn’t it?!
Swoon!! I totally adore this front porch and door, so pretty and welcoming. In fact, Kelly’s front porch was my inspiration for adding the front porch on my old house. This was before she painted it navy. I love the new navy!
Foyer with her cute dog, Sushi to welcome guests.
The living room.
Kelly’s love of mid-century modern and vintage is evident inside with her choices and mix of furniture and accessories.
The dining room is warm and cozy too, with a red rug and warm olive walls. I love the pair of lanterns hanging over the table.
How about the red stove and range hood with that stunning marble backsplash.
Kelly’s pride and joy is the renovated kitchen, with white cabinets, and marble countertops and herringbone marble backsplash. Wow, is it gorgeous!! A dream kitchen for many of us. Kelly’s complete kitchen tour is here. She has a wonderful and interesting mix of vintage accessories all around the kitchen.
And the wine bottle lighting, how cool is that choice?
Cute breakfast area. Check out the map light.
She even has a cute mudroom.
And a sunporch complete with cozy seating.
Love her gallery wall on the TV wall.
Cute colorful rug leads to the guest room.
What a cozy space this is with the exposed brick wall.
Outdoor seating on a beautiful bluestone patio.
Great place to spend time outdoors during summer.
Hope you enjoyed Kelly’s beautiful eclectic home. It’s certainly evident that Kelly has taken pride in her home and made it a wonderful showplace and she should be very proud of the outcome. Hope you’ll stop by and visit Kelly, I know she would love that.
