MOVIE MAKEOVER: Sex & The City

Carrie's Apartment AFTER


Tomorrow night's Academy Awards has me thinking about movie makeovers.  In the decorating division, the transformation of Carrie Bradshaw's studio apartment ranks amongst my favorites. In Sex & The City, the TV series, Carrie's drab living space took a back seat to the fashions.  In Sex & The City: The Movie, locations and decor move center stage, beginning with the search for the perfect Manhattan residence that serves as catalyst for the entire plot and concluding with this apartment makeover marking a return to personal happiness ... and then to happily ever after.  At least at the end of Movie 1.  Who knows what fate awaits Carrie & Co. in Movie 2, coming this May.

The SATC creative team always manages to be ahead of the trends--I also can't wait to see what they come up with in 2.

And, oh the closets! Actually, Carrie's original closet was incredible--about 10 times bigger than mine! And the one in the penthouse ... swoon.

I'm soooo happy there is a post about Sex and The City .... I'm still holding you to that tour in NY Aunt Doreen :) LOVE YOU!!!!

Oh and I totally agree about the closet the one in Mom's new house isn't long enough to even stretch out my arms ... but my room is nice and large

Cass--I bet after SATC2 comes out the NYC bus tour will be even better. Why don't you plan a visit after graduation and we'll check it out?
Uncle Kevin and I need to get to Asheville as well and see the new house--it looks adorable.
--Love you, Aunt Doreen
