Fashionistas got an unusual treat this past weekend when Betsey Johnson held a giant yard sale at her East Hampton home. The Post noted that the punk-rock-meets-bubblegum-pink fashion designer was unloading around 10,000 items from her personal collection, “including her own designs, one of a kind runway pieces and vintage couture.” The sale coincides with Johnson listing her home at 25 Grape Arbor Lane for $1,995,000. And while the clothes outside may be wild and crazy, the designer’s cottage-like residence is much more subdued, save for the girly, flowery wallpaper, vintage accents, and glitzy chandeliers.
The old-timey floral print pops up in almost every room on the main floor, which encompasses a living room, dining room, gourmet kitchen, and sunroom, all in an open floor plan. In total, the interior occupies 2,900 square feet.
There are also four bedrooms in the house, painted in fun pastels or adorned with the aforementioned wallpaper. The beamed and sloped ceilings add to the charming cottage feel.
The home sits on 1.65 acres of impeccably landscaped property. There’s a heated gunite pool surrounded by a large stone terrace, as well as a two-car detached garage. Betsey Johnson is moving to Malibu to be closer to her daughter and grandchildren.
