Just when you thought the Gorga home couldn’t get any more stunning… 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

Fresh off a European vacationMelissa Gorga returned to Instagram on Sunday, August 6, to unveil several beautiful additions to her Franklin Lakes pad. The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom recently confirmed that the mansion’s facade was finally complete after months and months of renovation. However, it seems she wasn’t quite satisfied with the interior, specifically the number of bare walls. Melissa’s solution? Artwork, of course.

Award-winning interior designer Vanessa Deleon connected Melissa with These Fine Walls, an online art gallery that specializes in limited-edition photography prints. The mother of three was clearly impressed by the company’s offerings and selected a few pieces for her and Joe Gorga’s abode.

“Finally picked some glam/fun artwork!” she captioned the Instagram carousel. “[These Fine Walls] is a curated selection of photographs by artists from around the world! I’m in love!”

Melissa updates her bedroom, bar, dining space, and living area

Melissa updated her neutral-colored living room by flanking a window with two pieces: “3’s a Party” and “Round & Round” by Australian photographer Dina Broadhurst. She also elevated her gorgeous bedroom with “Glitter Girl” by fashion photographer Jamie Nelson. The work was placed next to the fireplace, perfectly accenting the marble wall. 

But she wasn’t done. The Jersey ’Wife also glammed up her dining space and one of her built-in bars. She installed a piece called “Field Dance” in the former area and “Golden Indulgence” in the latter. Both works are by the gallery’s founder, Lisa Eryn.

Lisa shared a behind-the-scenes look at the installation process at the end of July, right before the Gorgas embarked on an Italian getaway.

 

Melissa and Joe’s New Home

Melissa and Joe began building their house in 2021, but they didn’t start moving in until November 2022. Since then, the Jersey couple has made many changes to the property, including a major exterior renovation. They expanded the porch, redid the roofline, and installed new windows.

Melissa showed off the final product in a June 24 Instagram post.

“I’m so happy I found Dan [and Plan Architecture, LLC] so that when we could FINALLY resubmit our plans after all the COVID chaos that my true vision for this house could come to life,” she captioned the Instagram. “[Joe,] I know you wanted to kill me but I’m so grateful for you to make this happen so soon after moving in.”

Melissa Gorga's New House Is "Costing Us Double" and "Taking Triple the Amount of Time"

The Franklin Lakes home reportedly sits on 1.5 acres of land and features six bedrooms, multiple bars, a full gym, a glass-wall office, and a “glam room.” Melissa and Joe sold their previous home in Montville, New Jersey, in late 2020.
