Carrie Bradshaw's Apartment

For those of you familiar with Sex and The City (and I imagine a fair few of you fall into this category!) you'll be no stranger to Carrie Bradshaw's apartment.

Personally, I love it. It feels like an old friend of mine. Over the years I've spent many an hour in this sweet, little place (visually counts, right?) and eavesdropped on countless conversations.

As one-bed, New York apartments go this fictional abode is roomier than most. Carrie could definitely have swung a cat if she wanted to. But, as it happened, she opted for other past-times.

Such as talking on her old-school telephone while lounging in bed.
Stumbling through the doorway in fabulous outfit after fabulous outfit (and, let's be honest there were a sprinkling of not-so-fabulous outfits too!)
Relaxing in the beautiful leather armchair that Aidan designed, interspersed with staring out of the window while sat at her desk, typing away on her trusty Mac keyboard.
Franticly grabbing garments from her over-stuffed closet while running late for a date.
Using her oven as storage space for her sweater collection. 
And then, of course, SATC: The Movie came out and Carrie's apartment underwent a huge makeover halfway through the film. As pleasant and modern as the new look turned out to be, I still yearn for the pre-makeover look. For me it was more inviting, more 'lived-in' and so much more cosy.

    1. Ah, those were the days! Thankfully, we have re-runs and dvds so the magic never has to end. :)

  3. I am such an SATC fan too, even my husband can quote it he's overheard it so many times! I loved Carrie's apartment too and was gutted when they gave it a makeover at the end of the first film. Thankfully, in the second film (even though the film itself was a bit of a joke) it was nice to see Carrie's old electic style back in her new fancy apartment with Mr Big. And now I'll stop writing as I'm sounding way too over enthusiastic about this conversation!!

    1. Nothing wrong with a bit of enthusiasm, Laura! Especially when its directed at SATC!!

      I once saw a woman on Mastermind who's specialist subject was SATC (maybe it was you!) and I could answer every single question she was asked. Never happened before and never happened since. x

    2. It wasn't me unfortunately - wouldn't that be hilarious! - but I think I saw that episode of mastermind too. I never get that, we'd all be masterminds if we could answer questions only about our favourite things!

  4. I definitely am on Team Old Apartment, even though I loved whatever shade of blue they painted it in the movie. This version of the apartment is so charming though, so authentic. I love all the little details, especially that small nook right off the kitchen that looks like it has some shelving and a desk. Her apartment is the perfect size, too, even though we all know it's far too large for New York based on her salary, haha. Loved this post! xo

    1. Erin, I can only imagine how thrilled you must have been when Carrie departed to Paris during Season 6 - you must have been in seventh heaven! x

  5. I am such a SATC fan. I love everything about Carrie - her apartment, her friends and oh how I'd love her wardrobe. You've made me want to go start watching again from the beginning. I'm off to find my box set...

    1. Carrie does lead an extraordinary life! And I certainly wouldn't say no to re-creating certain parts of it myself. Enjoy reliving the memories!!
