Today’s Daily Dream Home belongs to Jenna Lyons, the J.Crew president and creative director.

Located at 178 Garfield Place in Brooklyn, the four-story 1880’s townhouse has four stories, 7 bedrooms, 3.5 luxuriously appointed baths, an eat-in cook’s kitchen with a Wolf Range, a large private terrace off the master bedroom and a cellar that has been converted to a media room for entertaining.
