Carrie Bradshaw's Apartment - Before & After




               The Chelsea McClaren print rests on the desk by the front door.



       The 'Parfum' print now resides in Carrie's bedroom.






I'm a massive fan of the Sex and the City series, loving pretty much everything Carrie Bradshaw wore, yes, even some of the crazier get-ups. I also have a soft spot for her old apartment. Those of you who have seen the movie will know that to get over her broken heart when Big jilted her at the alter, she redecorated her New York apartment. I'm in two minds about the new decor. There are certain things I love, like the cluster art, the mirrored dresser and the use of the Chelsea McClaren 'Parfum' print on her bedroom wall, that used to rest beside her front door in the old apartment. But I miss that truly eclectic look that was Carrie Bradshaw and New York. It wasn't over styled and seemed to suit the character more so than the new apartment. And what happened to Aiden's chair?

Hello Miss KT, Which room are they sharing? Noah's old room or the nursery? I can not believe Hunter will be one already next week! xxx

i know what you mean...it use to have a more earthly feel to it...and i think it was easier for most single ladies out there to relate to her old apartment. uh, i just love the scene where she's eatin' noodles on New Year's Eve,alone. But anyway,relationships evolve, even ppl evolve, so why not apartments?

Who wouldn't give their eye teeth for that sweet little NYC apartment! Regardless of the decor. Makes me seriously nostalgc for my singleton days. I love the extra scenes on the SATC movie DVD that weren't on the screen version too.
