if you are on instagram you have to follow @johnyunis. john is a real estate agent in nyc and he takes us on tours of the most fabulous and iconic homes via his instagram (he’s also super lovely, i met him at one of my book signings in nyc).

His tours are lessons and are always super inspiring and very interesting. his latest tour is of le jonchet, hubert de givenchy’s chateau 2 1/2 hours southwest of paris. 

le jonchet is was one of my favorite homes. it’s a lesson in restraint and chicness. hubert is a style icon… his life, his designs, his homes and his lifestyle is the ultimate. i thought i knew a lot about hubert and le jonchet, but i realized john knows more. 

you must follow john on instagram. he just started his tour of le jonchet. keep following, everyday he shares a little more.
