Kellygreen Home, a “green lifestyle boutique for sustainable home goods,” has opened an Echo Park store on Sunset Boulevard. Owner Kelly Van Patter opened the new store on Sunday in a former insurance office that was gutted to expose brick walls and wood ceiling beams. The Echo Park store will be open Tuesday – Sunday from 11 am. to 8 p.m. Van Patter closed her Silver Lake location this summer as the landlord prepared to demolish the Sunset Junction building. Kellygreen Home is one of several new businesses – deKor home furnishings, iam8bit Productions gallery and Mohawk Bend restaurant – that have recently opened on the block.
