Out with the old

Just in: Apartment therapy for Carrie and the Sex and the City Girls!

I'll admit I have only watched one DVD of the series, one morning that my kids were at school and I was running on the treadmill.
I am also ready to admit that I am not going to watch the film (unless friend G calls), but I shall probably sneak the DVD in for a winter evening private show.

Interestingly there has been quite a flood of blogging on the issue of the set, or the decor, which shows how familiar people got with the girls. Carrie and the ladies grew up, it is only natural (?) that Carrie's apartment should look more sophisticated, less vintage chic.

Do I spot a trend?
Here are some of the blogs that published articles on the subject: The Love List offers some interesting personal insight, Elements of Style did some research on actual items, and Casa Sugar publishes an interview with production designer Jeremy Conway. For the best pictures and knowledgeable revelations, head to Silver Screen Surroundings.

Not to forget this post by The Paris Apartment who must be pleased with the film's sets. Very much your glamorous, eclectic style Claudia!

Now, if you are not a very successful, very rich and very sexy girl, do not despair. You will manage to get away with it graciously with some paint (Benjamin Moore's Electric Blue looks very much like it, I read),


and a trip to your nearest Ikea!
