Emily Blunt and John Krasinski’s Just-Listed Brooklyn Brownstone Is Legit the House of Our Dreams
Eye candy break: Hollywood power couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski just listed their stunning four-story brownstone in Park Slope, Brooklyn. The duo purchased the seven-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath townhouse in 2016 for $6 million, and following a loving restoration, they're now looking to turn a casual profit of $2 million.
While the property itself is pretty damn magnificent, the real story here is the pair's fabulous taste in design. (Note the clear appreciation of age and history, mixed with a bright, layered decor scheme.)
So why are they abandoning the jewel of a home so soon? Constant actor travel. (Le sigh.) "The house is so special," Krasinski told The Wall Street Journal. "Someone who can spend every night there should have it." What we wouldn't give to be that person...
Check out the dream digs and inspired decor below.
Upon entering the limestone townhouse, you're greeted by amazing original millwork, antique pocket doors and a healthy dose of taupe and teal textiles.
The Living Room
In the formal parlor floor living space, ornate moldings and a colossal bay window create a glorious canvas for the mod-meets-polished decor.
The Sitting Room
Blunt and Krasinski know that matchy-matchy seating situations are for totally snores. Also, let's talk about these epic built-in bookshelves with stained glass cutouts. Swoon.
The Dining Room
Who needs a rug when your floors are original inlaid parquet? (Honorable mentions to the gas insert fireplace and epic statement pendant light above the dining table.)
Guys, the floor-to-ceiling windows are actually sliding doors leading out to the garden. And the skylight runs the entire length of the room. And the floors are radiant-heated.
The Master bedroom
We love Blunt and Krasinksi's fresh mix of French influences (see: the tufted settee, the striped fabric wallpaper) and midcentury modern vibes (see: the bureau, the TV stand). We're also super into this whitewashed nonworking fireplace setup.
The Master Bath
Gleaming white marble, French gold fixtures and a stained glass wall and skylight transform this master bath suite into a truly ethereal hideaway.
