Carrie Bradshaw's new digs....

Did anyone see Sex and the City, the movie, last year? I've seen it, well, lets just say a few times.......
After Mr. Big couldn't bring himselft to show up to the New York Public Library to marry Carrie (boo hoo), the roller-coaster of love couple broke up yet again! Carrie took her Mexican honeymoon with the girls, slowly came out of her Mexi-coma, returned to NY, hired Louise from St. Louis as an assistant, and then.....made over her NYC apartment....
And it was good! Very good!
What I LOVE, is
1. the blue walls.....I read an article saying the designer always mixes his own paint colors, but this color is close to Benjamin Moore's "Electric Blue." Its very peacock blue-ish...
2. the unexpected purple rug - there is nothing else purple in the room, but it definately works!
3. the large floral pattern fabric on the new grown-up loveseats.
4. the "LOVE TOO" artwork now hung in her foyer....after some research, I found out that this is actually a rug for your wall. It comes from The Rug Company in the UK. 5. and the very sexy mirrored vanity.... Can you believe the before shots? Much improved! And I can't wait for the movie sequel for more ideas! And check out Hooked On House's Blog party at for more things that make people happy!


  1. What a fun post! I loved that movie and thought Carrie's apartment makeover was fab. That blue color on the walls is so pretty. This makes me want to see the movie again.

    Thanks for joining my party! :-)

  2. I wasn't allowed to go to the movie with wife and daughters; they said it was my attitude or something. I'll lose face if I watch it on video. What to do?

  3. You know....I've gotta say...haven't seen the movie. But love your post!

  4. The afters are a HUGE improvement over the befores!! The rug is great -- not only the purple, but the bold design. And that mirrored vanity IS sexy!! Pretty blue walls too :-)

    Thanks for checking out my Hooked on Fridays post. Good to hear that you found it informative :-)

  5. That blue on the wall with the cream? Dee-lish. So gorgeous.

  6. Great movie! I hadn't seen it until a few weeks ago. Good thing I was home...I cried from when she dropped the cell phone until the end! Anyhoo - GREAT post! LOVED her redecorated place! Purple rug - amazing.

  7. I knew "blue" would make a come back. We've been in a warm phase (think honey/butter colors) for a long time. Blue was bound to come back. :)

  8. I loved her apartment, and I loved the apartment she and Big were going to buy. The afters really do look much better--I've seen the movie twice now and it's funny, I didn't realize the full extent of her makeover until now.

  9. I think that was my favorite part of the movie. :) I always liked her apartment but after the makeover, I couldn't believe how much better it looked.

  10. Wow what an awesome post. That was my favorite tv show of all time, and I've only seen the movie once. I need to rent it again. What great research! I love that purple rug and the love sign/rug in the foyer!
