Before and After Carrie Edition

6:34:00 AM

I'm a cliche when it comes to tv series. I love Friends. Who doesn't? And to those who haven't seen them yet.. please do yourself a favor and go watch. HAHA... And cliche of all cliches for lady's fave tv series.. Sex and the City. I love them. If you're like me who watched the series and the movies, you all know that Carrie renovated her apartment as seen in the movies. So here goes the before and after.

The new space is beautiful and very well decorated, but I'm kinda partial to her old place. Maybe because of the memories? Memories daw? Feeling close? haha

Who would forget this doorway where Carrie and Big kissed countless of times?

Or that chair where Aidan sat patiently, looking all cute while Carrie closed the curtains so she can be "alone" for a while...

Or this bed where she had slept with lots of men. Told you I'm partial to this space. It's warm, cozy, and  well, just very lived in.

But this whole new apartment is so gorgeous! I can't imagine Aidan sitting in that chair, but I can imagine me lounging in it! Ha!

The vibrant blue walls is just to die for. It gives so much energy to the space.

This apartment would still look great in a paler subdued hue, but this color provides great contrast and everything just pops!

Hello mirrored vanity! Hello Carrie!

I'd probably have a really comfy deep sofa in here, but this new space is all about being pretty. And this settees are really pretty.

Love the series. Love the women. Love their apartments. But I guess the reason I love their spaces is because their personality really reflects their apartments. The old Carrie apartment is very true to her casual care-free lifestyle, and the movie apartment is her I've-matured-I'm-getting-married apartment.

The point is your house should be you. If you're married or living with someone, your space should be both of you. Your place should inspire you. So go, paint your walls, rearrange your furniture, go ahead and hang that frame. Do whatever you can, within your means, to be happy in your home.

  5. Do you think this will work in a guy's place? I'm just bound to beige and chocolate brown (with oranges pieces) or black and white (with metal and red pieces). I wanted dark blue but I have small space.

    Thank you for your POV. ~ call me Clark

  6. I agree with you. That shade of blue really make everything pop out! I might consider that for when I get a place of my own.

  7. @clark.. ooh sorry just saw the comment. shame on me. I'm pretty sure a deeper shade of that blue would look great with your brown, orange, and metal pieces. Might look very eclectic and collected. :)

    @Talia.. yes please share once you got your space! :)
