Get the Look: Miranda Hobbes' Slick Upper West Side Home Part II

Get the Look: Miranda Hobbes' Slick Upper West Side Home Part II

If you read my first post on Miranda Hobbes' home, you're probably aching for more of that successful lawyer style. I'll show you how to get the look of the accents and lighting in her pad, when you

The Accents:
Pick some light, girly accents to add a feminine touch to the straight lines of the furniture. Miranda kept antique perfume bottles on her dresser, and chose sheer, airy curtains to let light into her big, pre-War apartment. Make sure to pick up a Starburst Mirror for above your mantle that's hard, sharp, and unusual like Miranda. Leave other decorative touches to a minimum, maybe just some vases, a bedside childhood portrait, and candles. Hang abstract black and white photo prints that are intriguing and sexy. Install clean and classical crown moldings. Purchase a Tibetan-inspired, somewhat mystical painting to hang in the dining room, and lay down a muted toned brocade rug.

The Lighting:
Let the light in with sheer curtains, so you cast soft shadows into the room. Pick a geometric lamp for your bedside table lamp, and put a tall, textured wooden floor lamp and a crystal sphere table lamp next to the couch. Hang boxy, rectangular white pendants over the dining room table—nothing fussy, it doubles as a workspace, remember?

Whatever you do, think conservative. Choose proportion over embellishment, and neatness over clutter like Carrie's creative crib. Choose products that are lean, simple, understated, and very well-made. This is, after all, the Upper West Side.
