Home Gawking, J. Crew Style
Ahh, the one that got away. Gorgeous home, with a backyard. Simple, elegant, all done in neutrals with pops of color. Unfortunately, I’ve found it AFTER it’s been snapped up by some lucky buyer. Oh, and I don’t live in New York. Oh, AND, I don’t have $3.75 million. But still…it feels like the house I want to live in when I look at it: Jenna Lyon’s Brooklyn brownstone.
See, our family is house hunting right now, one of my all time favorite things to do. To tell you the truth, I could hang out in this voyerism land of going to open houses indefinitely. I just love to see the insides of other people’s homes and imagine how I would live there. I think it’s a sickness really, how excited I get on Sunday mornings. I’m not stalker-y or anything. I don’t rifle through closets or open cupboards. Much.
But check out these pics of Jenna’s house – you know Jenna, of J. Crew, style maven, dresser of the First Lady? She has a great section in their catalog called Jenna’s picks. Love her!
I seriously want this kitchen. Sooooooo simple. And yet, not. I might need more cabinet space above the counters but something inside of me wants to have such a clean space to look at instead of more cabinets. The seating area in the bay window is just magical, too. Can’t you just see hanging out having coffee while she whips up something delicious?
Let’s just look at that bay window again, shall we?
The “en suite” bathroom is a little literal. Whaaaat? I mean, it’s the same room practically with only an open archway for “privacy.” Um, door, please.
As for the rest of the house, I’m just in love. The black. The white. The wood accents.
