A-list couple/generally beautiful people John Legend and Chrissy Teigen evidently want to bring some beautiful babies into the world, so they are planning to sell their one-bedroom Nolita apartment, according to the Real Deal. Legend bought the place in 2012 for $2.5 million, and after a renovation by Don Stewart and architect Winka Dubbeldam, the 1,969-square-foot apartment got the Architectural Digest treatment. The designers took "cues from the building," the Brewster Carriage House, a 19th-century warehouse located at 374 Broome Street, and created a space that preserved the "old-school industrial look."
Teigen loves to cookand has a website for her recipesand the kitchen saw some of the biggest changes. The modern white cabinetry (see photos below) was replaced by dark wood with "perforated cabinet-door inserts" and a lot of brass and bronze elements. There's also a large island with a surface that's intended to show use, which sounds like it could be a turn off for some buyers. For more looks at the apartment, check out Teigen's Instagram.
The listing should go live some time this week, but in the meantime, here's what the place looked like when Legend bought it in 2012. The floorplan has slightly changed, as the couple turned a bathroom into a walk-in closet and added "a wall to create a proper vestibule.":
