Today’s charming home hails from Upstate New York and was built in 1849, so it has all the charm of yesteryear. Inside, it’s filled with colorful flea market finds and outside, this charmer has a view of Vermont’s Green Mountains.
A chippy blue hutch takes center stage in the family room next to a cushy chaise lounge. A stained glass window hanging on the wall hints at the color you’ll find throughout the home.
The other side of the family room holds the TV . A rustic coffee table on wheels allows easy moving so snacks can be served and rolled closer to any seating space in the room.
Floral fabric adorns the dining room chairs and provides an interesting and eclectic contrast to the brick walls and rustic wood floors. White walls keep the room from becoming overpowering.
A built-in white cabinet with green glass knobs provides storage in the dining room.
The kitchen has been renovated and showcases warm wood cabinets in an industrial chic style.
Color and architectural details fill the living room with personality.
An antique wooden hutch shows off a collection of flea market finds. Wide plank floors reveal the older age of this charming home in Upstate New York.
I love the wide hallways you often find on second floors in older homes. As hubby and I look for a new house, one of my must-haves is a wider upstairs hallway, or a loft at the top of the stairs. I don’t like the look of long narrow halls. It’s probably due to my claustrophobia.
The 4-post master bed is loaded with comfy pillows. Taupe walls add warmth while white trim adds a crisp, fresh look.
An under the eaves bedroom is loaded with soft textiles, from the flowing bed skirt to the fringed pillows to the thick down comforter at the foot of the bed.
A graceful green rocking chair attends a white wrought iron crib. A perfect nursery for any deserving baby!
You’ll find more green and touches of purple on the eclectic porch.
The exterior of this charming home in Upstate New York is Greek Revival style … but did you notice the handles on the front double door? Yep, painted pitchforks!!

And later today, I’m joining a group of bloggers for “Celebrations of Home” where each month we’ll showcase seasonal home decor. I’ll be sharing how to create vases from paper bags!
