Get the Look: Carrie Bradshaw's Creative Crib, the Accents

Get the Look: Carrie Bradshaw's Creative Crib, the Accents

You're not an expert just yet on how to get the look of Carrie Bradshaw's creative crib. Here is a lesson on the leading lady's accents.

The Accents:
Ms. Bradshaw is a fashion fiend, so be sure to subscribe to all the girly glossies and use them as coffee table reading. She’s a writer, so hoarding periodicals is a part of her job. Everywhere you look, high and low, there should be stacks of mags, books, and archives of the newspaper you write for. I don’t endorse smoking, but C’s a smoker so a butt-brimmed ashtray is a must. Hang shopping bags from all the high-end NYC shops (Barney’s, Bergdorf’s, Bendel’s, Jimmy Choo) on the backs of doorknobs to use as storage for all the "stuff" that amasses living in a big city. Choose a super plush mattress, and anything from Calvin Klein's bedding collection will get the look.

Adorn your bathroom sink and bathtub with beauty products (Kiehls moisturizer, Bobbi Brown brushes, your boyfriend’s Rogaine). Stock the kitchen with an assortment of stemware you wind up with after late nights out. Plaster the fridge with magnets and family photos so you feel at home. There’s no use in trying to make your jam-packed walk-in closet look neat; think of it as “organized chaos.” Mat and frame abstract sepia and black-and-white photographs, and hang them above your bed, or prop them on a console table. Be sure to have curtains made from the Marimekko fabric Carrie used.

See and I always felt that her apartment was so never looked like she put any of herself into it! It was purely functional and cluttered! Not to mention drab.

I loved her apartment in the show. Modern, but still girly without being too girly.

Carrie's bathroom is an absolute NIGHTMARE to me! I like to keep all my products under the sink in organized, labeled essential face creams are kept on a pretty glass wall shelf. I HATE when there's products all over the place!

hehe Yah tons of clutter.. but it'a always arranged nicely. lol nearly everything has a place in her appartment. I especially love her dressing table and the vintage (white?) tiny dressing armoir next to it. Seems like it's always open with stuff hanging off the doors.
