Copycat // Jenna Lyons

Posted on

Jenna Lyons, J. Crew president and creative director, and all around well-dressed woman, sold her Park Slope, Brooklyn town-home in 2012. She moved back into Manhattan, into the downtown, abandoned-factory rich area of Tribeca. Prior to selling, we voyeuristically got a peek inside the trendsetter’s digs, thanks to Sotheby’s. In a wondrous tight-rope act, the space is modern yet antique, glamourous yet minimal.

Step inside, and learn to recreate this renovated 1880’s Brownstone.

This closet has a limestone mantle. Yes, I am jealous of the myriad shoes, but a fireplace in a closet puts me over the edge!
