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

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

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 lighting.

The Lighting:
Carrie's lighting choices are functional more than anything else. She puts her lamps exactly where she needs them, and nowhere else. In her living room, C chose two wooden, mid-century floor lamps with drum shades to brighten up the living room when she's reading in Aidan's chair or writing at her desk. A dainty lamp on the entry hall console table leads her in when she comes home late, a basic bedside lamp lets her read herself to sleep, and under-cabinet lighting in the kitchen is a remnant of an old NYC rental.

Maybe you don't read Vogue or shop at Barney's, but you can still get the Carrie look if you embrace your clutter. Find a way to make your dusty stacks of periodicals look intentional. Don't just go out and buy furniture that looks like the ones you've seen here. Collect mid-century-like pieces of similar wood finishes or colors that you love, slowly over time from flea markets, and choose a few, soft colors of the same hue to paint your walls. The best way to channel Carrie is to be yourself, whether you're a person who wears bold brights or simple khaki colors.
