Happy Friday friends! Enjoy this repeat of Feature Friday from a few years ago. This home is still beautiful and classic and I think you’ll enjoy.
I spotted another new blogger on Instagram recently, Melinda, with House 214 Design. She is from Holland originally and is mom to 3 beautiful children. She and her family live in a 1940’s quaint and charming home and have been there for 15 years. Melinda’s style is classic, timeless, and simple and she started her blog last Fall as a way to connect with her Instagram fans, I feel sure. She’s a new blogger with a beautiful classic home to share and I just love her style and know that y’all will too.
From her Fall home tour, a view of the front door and entry to her charming historic home.
The living room is cozy and casual with touches of classic. I loe that marble topped coffee table. You’ll notice that all around her house she has a wonderful way of mixing her vintage finds. She definitely believes in decorating a home for the family that lives there and it comes out in her style and writing on her blog.
Fireplace in the living room.
They added on the kitchen in 2010 and Melinda designed the whole thing. I’m so impressed with the way it marries the old and new so seamlessly and looks like it’s been here for a long time. It’s charming, but also classic and timeless with Shaker style cabinets.
Notice the beadboard ceiling, the black honed (looks to be) black countertops and the pot filler on white subway tile.
I love this shot of Melinda prepping in her kitchen on the built in butcher block corner.
Farmhouse sink with a huge window in front is a huge focal point.
She made room for a beautiful natural wood corner cabinet in this kitchen.
A bar cart holds dishes and pretties.
Notice the copper accents and Melinda’s stylish way of displaying items. Oh, and the schoolhouse lights, those are so cool!
I just love this kitchen!
Looks like Melinda thought of everything.
The master bedroom is spacious and cozy as well.
Vintage style hex tiles on the floor are perfect for this cottage home and I love the pedestal sinks with a storage cabinet in the middle.
A barn door hides the washer and dryer.
Beautiful mudroom cabinets were added new to the house and wow, are those pretty.
An extra sink is so nice.
She decided to make a sunroom into the kid’s playroom near where the family hangs out.
The baby’s nursery is calming and serene.
What a dreamy patio!
I hope you all enjoyed this beautiful classic home tour of Melinda’s House 214 Design. She really has a knack for putting a timeless home together! Stop over and stay hello.

Thank you for introducing us to House 214 Design. I have wanted to replace our kitchen wall paper with subway tiles, and her kitchen showcased the idea perfectly.
As always you have shared another’s log with grace and charm.
Thank you for your blog, it is the high light of my mornings.
Thank you, Barbara, so glad you enjoyed!
WOW, Rhoda, the first photo of her kitchen reminds me a lot of your kitchen!! You know – the corner where you closed up the doorway? Thank you for sharing Melinda’s beautifully serene home with us.
Thank you, Cat, I still love my kitchen too!
Good morning Rhoda , I am so glad we have moved past all the jewel tones into these lighter more serene tones. Her style is a very pretty uncluttered look. I love all the whites and pale hues of all the gray greens and soft aqua that we see. Very airy and relaxing. I love the lack of “stuff” I’m getting to the age I don’t enjoy picking it all up to dust under it . Less is more as we like to say I suppose.
This is such a cozy and comfortable looking house. I just love what Melinda has done with it!
This house is very cozy!! Love her kitchen!! I love the way she put in the corner a vintage cabinet and the pieces of copper adds a warmth to the room. I always say that a piece or pieces of copper will give any room warmth.
I love small houses like this because on the outside is may appear small, but, once inside it doesn’t feel small because of how the owner has set the house up.
Have a great weekend Rhoda!!
Gorgeous home!! I would love to know the brand of kitchen cabinets if they are not custo. Love the mud room cabinetry this is one of my favorite homes that you have showcased.
I really enjoy the houses you feature on Friday. Thank you!
