Ms. Lyons sartorial instincts have certainly elevated main stream fashion and influenced trends. But the former creative director turned president of J.Crew’s evolving style doesn’t stop at fashion — her Brooklyn townhouse is AMAZING!

The elegant entryway of Lyon’s Park Slope townhouse as shot in 2009 for Livingetc.
The large yellow sofa brings an unexpected dose of color and a sense of humor to the elegant space.
The walls, richly coated in chalkboard paint, draw attention to the fabulous architecture, creating a cozy but elegant chambre and bath. Divine.
This photo is from the architect’s website. Such a pretty bay window.
Who can forget the infamous “Toemageddon”? Gender bending or not, it’s pretty darn cute.
Jenna’s Style Rules as featured in Glamour Magazine:
No 1. Pair opposites together. Don’t be afraid of sequins with jeans, or your boyfriend shirt over a sexy tank.
No 2. Never leave home without something “tomboy,” whether it’s an oxford shirt or a classic blazer.
No 3. For a fresh and unexpected styling touch, wear a statement necklace outside your shirt collar.
No 4. Make sure to incorporate several different textures into your look. For winter, ribbed tights are an easy answer.
No 5. Don’t compromise on fit— no matter what you wear.
