Sex and the City Interiors

Another start of a new week  and the last day of January! I was watching  Sequel #2 of Sex and the City and thought I'd post some of the rooms from the movie.  Below is the authors apartment.( Candace Bushnell). Wonder if she had  input  for designing  Carrie and Big's apartment. I am still hoping another series will start again! I miss watching the the girls on the street of NYC.
Candace Bushnell, the author of the novel that inspired both the TV series and the movies, has an apartment as chic as anything in the new film. To check it out,click here.



Carrie and Big's Dining Room

In the dining room, an oxidized-metal chandelier by Propertyhangs above a French 1940s mahogany table from Alan Moss. The custom-made chairs were upholstered in a Lee Jofa print fabric.

A blown-glass chandelier byLindsey Adelman Studio is a showstopper in Carrie and Big’s hallway.

This chic space was rebuilt to look exactly like Carrie’s apartment in the first film. In the living room, chairs upholstered in fabric from Wolf Homesurround a glamorous mirrored cocktail table from ABC Carpet & Home.

The most modern setting in the film is Samantha’s Manhattan office. The minimal space features a Vitra desk, bright white accessories, and sweeping views of Times Square. 


Carrie and Big’s bedroom is a striking blend of pattern and texture. The custom-headboard is covered in fabric by Kravetand pops against the neutral Rococo Stripe wallpaper by by Cole & Son from Lee Jofa. The bedding is from Anichini.










The closet is a functional his-and-hers space, with Big’s clothes on the left and Carrie’s (mostly) on the right. It’s more subdued than the flashier closet of the first film, set decorator Lydia Marks says: “The ‘wow’ factors are the woodwork and the hardware. It’s more grown up and sophisticated."
