The House that SATC Built

Since I’ve already written about Carrie and Big’s apartment in the new Sex and the City movie, I thought it would be fun to take a look inside the home of the original Carrie Bradshaw, Candace Bushnell. ELLE DECOR just posted these photos and I’m so happy! This is one of my all time favorite apartments. It was published in 2005 and it’s another one of those rare examples of a timeless interior. With help from interior designer Susan Forristal, she and her husband created a jewel box in what was a wreck in Greenwich Village. I especially love all the pale colors and touches of gilt in the living room. It looks like a soothing oasis to escape the craziness of the city! For more details, check out the online article. Enjoy!

    I do love this home–so happy and fresh and a great mix of modern and antique. I have a “thing” for wheat sconces and the ones on either side of the fireplace are great-really full with good gilding. Thanks for showing how New Yorkers really live. mary

    Is that HERSELF on the wallpaper in the bathroom? Hah that’s a bit much…

    Otherwise I LOVE the color palette. And I love that it’s not insanely huge – especially the kitchen and bathroom. Those chairs in the yellow room are absolutely gorgeous.

    Brilliant home! Surprisingly more traditional than I expected it to be, but fitting with her writing… There’s a lot of romance and interest in there.

    This home is timeless and absolutely perfect! I wouldn’t change a thing and she’s gorgeous. It makes me want to add more “pretty” to my home… although my husband would tell you that I already have too much. Thanks, Heather!

    I so wish I was a set designer on those movies. I know most would want to be a costume designer but not me.
    Also, I wonder where all the furniture, art, etc..goes after production wraps. If anyone finds out – let me know!
