Where I Sleep…

For the last month, I’ve been working on a personal project – my bedroom.  It’s been so nice and I look forward to going to bed these days.  The makeover included a new bed, a new dresser, new art and frames, bedding and accessories mixed of new and vintage touches.  It started with this bed from West Elm – the James Harrison Bed in tweed. I absolutely love the high upholstered head-board. It’s absolutely comfortable. Of course with a new bed, you need new bedding. I went with a classic, yet modern white texture. I love white bedding it reminds me of chic hotels. From there, I decided to get a new dresser. I found this lovely dresser called the Audrey  – also from West Elm. It’s the perfect mix of mid-century modern and glamour. I love it.  I couldn’t stop there, I bought new frames and art prints that I adored and actually designed some too. I’m happy with the way everything turned out and wanted to share with you. Here is a glimpse…

The Real Carrie Bradshaw Apartment

 

The Real Carrie Bradshaw apartment

It’s been 10 years {2004} since Sex and the City aired it’s last episode of Season 6 and fashionistas and fans still talk about Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, & Samantha today. There were many fashion looks that evolved throughout the years and one in particular was Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment. We have seen the famous apartment in New York’s Greenwich Village {64 Perry Street} and maybe guilty of taking selfies on the steps. What we didn’t know was that the actual West Village apartment was much grander than what was shown to the Sex and the City audience. The brownstone apartment lists for $9.65 million. I wonder if Carrie’s Sex and the City column salary could actually afford the real 4000+ SF chic apartment. Here is a glimpse of the real Carrie Bradshaw apartment…

The brownstone includes herringbone wood floors with inlaid borders, six fireplaces with carved marble, and ornate crown molding throughout the space. This apartment exudes historic beauty with touches of gold sparkle seen in the anchored chandeliers and sconces. This is totally different from the apartment we see on the show and in the movie.

Almost every designer {fashion + interior} knows about Kelly Wearstler and almost every design blog has featured her, she is everywhere. Kelly Wearstler has an amazing sense of style.  She is known for her mid-century mod-glam style with her infusion of bold prints, color, and mixing in a vintage twist. She has created her own empire of design, jewelry, furniture, home accessories, author of 4 design books and high-profile design projects such as the Viceroy hotel and the Tides of South Beach.
