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.
I ♥ Carrie Bradshaw's apartment.
