In honor of all of the recent Sex and The City buzz, I'm going to show you how to get the Miranda Hobbes' look in your city or country dwelling. Miranda was never my favorite Sex and the City character, but I did always appreciate her pretty slick pad. It was very sophisticated and appropriate for a successful New York woman, especially for a partner in a law firm. It was tough like her exterior front, but surprisingly soft and feminine like her maternal side.
To learn how to get the Miranda Hobbes Home look,
Keep your color scheme cool. Miranda's walls looked white, although they were actually lilac. If you've got wood floors, go for a dark stain and an ebonized finish. Select backsplash tiles in sage, burnt sienna, and Mediterranean blue.
Go for furniture with a straight, angular or edgy look, just like Miranda's personality. Try a coffee table with criss-crossed legs, and a Parsons Dining Table with mid-century influences that can double as a desk for a hard-working lawyer. Order a few T-shaped Bentwood Chairs with steel framework, and a basic, cream-colored couch. Be sure to select a steel bed frame with long lines, and a tubular shape. Just remember to keep it clean and simple. Spend big paycheck bucks on top-of-the-line kitchen appliances, and be sure to get a fancy coffee maker to keep you going.
