I was so excited to see that Miranda Priestly’s office in The Devil Wears Prada was chosen by Elle Decor as one of their top ten favorite movie set designs from Cathy Whitlock’s new book Designs on Film. What an honor! It was the first film that I decorated alongside the very talented Jess Gonchor. Going out to buy the book today!!

Candace Bushnell’s apartment was featured in Elle Decor in 2005 but it seemed timely to post, and not just because of the Sex and The City connection! Similar to Hamish Bowles’ apartment, which we posted earlier this week, Candace’s brownstone is filled with a mix of 1930s french deco and pink accents. It is beautifully balanced with a piece by Ciao Fonseca, one of our favorite artists. The blue and red collage above the sofa is his and you will also see some of his work on our website.
Stylish Interiors from “Sex and the City 2”
– Leah Konen, Elle Decor
Chic rooms, fabulous furnishings, and smart decorating ideas from the highly anticipated sequel
“I’ve been cheating on fashion with furniture,” quips Carrie Bradshaw, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, at the beginning of Sex and the City 2. A sequel to the smash TV show and its successful cinematic spin-off, the movie finds Carrie growing up, learning how to share a new apartment with now-husband Mr. Big (Chris Noth), and extending her passion for all things fashionable to the world of interior design.
“Carrie is trying to make a new apartment for the two of them, not just for her,” says Jeremy Conway, the production designer for the TV series and both films. To that end, Conway, along with set decorator Lydia Marks of Marks & Frantz, created a space that blends masculine elements, such as linear midcentury furnishings and dark woods, with feminine accessories, including whimsical rugs and cheerful botanical-themed fabrics.
But the stylish settings aren’t reserved for the married couple. The movie features a mix of inspiring interiors, from the familiar spaces of Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) to a brand-new Times Square office for Samantha (Kim Cattrall) and even a luxurious, Moroccan-themed hotel.
