JENNA LYONS TOWNHOUSE

JENNA LYONS TOWNHOUSE

So. Who wants to give me $3.75 million dollars? Its for a good cause! The Krissy-needs-to-own-this-townhouse cause. This townhouse (belonging to the one and only Jenna Lyons, creative director and president of J.Crew) is up for sale. And I kind of want it x a lot because Ive been on the envy train for aaaaages. Its been in my folder called Dream Houses swoon! for as long as I can remember. (No lies, I actually have a folder on my computer called that. Its the best folder known to man-kind.)

Its just such a gorgeous townhouse inside and out, its almost mind-bogglingly perfect. From that architecturally gorgeous (white, bonus!) exterior and the beautiful blossom filled backyard (with concrete paving stones which are my FAVOURITE thing in the entire world when it comes to outdoor spaces)

check out that stunning minimal industrial-feel kitchen (mmm, concrete counter tops)

the delicious black coated bedroom and enjoining master bath

the entire-room-is-a-closet room! (Do the shoes come with the purchase of the home? Pleasepretty?)

and, of course, my FAVOURITE room in the entire house, the living room! That chandelier! That couch! That rug! The moldings! The fireplace! Everything!!

Wistful sigh. Yeah, I just really love this place. Its perfect. And Im jealous of whoever gets to live in it post-Lyons.

Most of the images in this post via Fashionologie. Some are from my own archives from aaaaages ago back before I even started my blog, so unfortunately, no source. I want to say theyre from Domino though.

Ill go in on the split. Surely $1m-ish each is very affordable.

I saw this in the news and I think I actually drooled. Its so gorgeous, I really wish I could afford it!

Oh wow, that is a beautiful home. I love to see black-painted rooms that work, it would have made my teenage goth past-self feel gloriously vindicated!

Absolutely! I love that black is becoming a more accepted colour choice nowadays.
