Jenna Lyons Former Park Slope Townhouse

J. Crew President Jenna Lyons used to live a few blocks from me in Park Slope. I was lucky to have been inside once during a house tour and used to walk down Garfield Place every chance I got just to peek inside those beautiful windows. The New York Times Style section story on her yesterday (which said she sold it last year for $4 million to Vincent Martin of Depeche Mode and moved to Tribeca), reminded me of that amazing brownstone, and I wanted to share it here.

Here’s the living room shot Domino magazine used when it covered her house in 2008. The gray walls inspired our own gray hallway. Pretty amazing bones in this 1880s townhouse and I love those French doors off the living room that open to the Juliet balconies with that beautiful ironwork.

The gray, black & white color scheme continues into the dining room. I read that the chandeliers were custom. I like the unexpected pairing of black iron with crystal, and the black candles are very cool. Also her son’s Playsam car is very cool.

I like the way Jenna tempered the formality of the architecture and chandelier with the farmhouse table and rustic sideboard.

I’ve been obsessed with that slate-blue cabinet color and how it works with the white and raw-wood table and floor.

The kitchen’s sitting area looks like an awesome spot for coffee and the paper.

The master bedroom was painted in chalkboard paint. Paired with a great, Serge Mouille lighting fixture.

The open bathroom in the master suite is not for everyone but I loved that herringbone-pattern wood floor.

Here’s another view showing the French doors to the upstairs deck.

Beautiful spot for lounging upstairs with a nice, modern, metal railing.

This dressing room sat off the master bedroom. I’m guessing since the windows wouldn’t allow for built-ins, Jenna decided to go with racks instead.

Her son, Beckett’s room. After he transitioned to a bed. I love the striped ceiling, and yellow, black & white color scheme.

Beckett’s room with crip. The orange chair is a nice splash of color, too.

Another shot of Beckett’s room. I love the playful letters.

The front entry is beautiful. The color is Farrow & Ball’s off-black and the door hardware is all silver, which surprised me.

I fell in love with this cute powder room off the hallway, as shown in Lonny magazine. It inspired our own striped shower curtain.

So what do you think?
