sex-y spaces

Like every other woman on the planet earth, I'm obsessed with Sex and the City.  It was my mom that turned me on to the series, and since then we haven't missed a single episode, re-run, and now the movie series (please, oh please, let there by more than just two)!  For all of you that have seen Sex and the City 2, I was completely blown away by the gorgeous interiors of "Mr. and Mrs. Big's" new "humble abode", and wished that just for a second I could step into Carrie's fashionable Manolo Blahnik's and experience the sexy spaces first hand.  For those of you who haven't seen the second movie, this is what you're missing!

The Living Room
I love how the rich, almost glowing hue of the abstract painting pairs with the deep blue Donghia mohair fabric of the streamlined sofa.

The Kitchen
The ultra modern kitchen is highlighted by the stark white upper cabinets, the contrasting lower cabinets, and the vibrant blue pop of the three dimensional oval backsplash tile by Heath Ceramics.

The Dining Room
The Lee Jofa dining room chair fabric holds a whimsical playful pattern against the dark mahogany dining table.  The pendant light fixture by Property adds a warm tone with its oxidized metal finish. 

The Hallway
The blown glass chandelier by Lindsey Adelman Studio (one of my favorites!) makes a great statement piece.  I love its organic form against the patterned wallpaper in the adjacent room.

The Bedroom
The bedroom is all about neutrality, texture, and pattern.  The Kravet fabric on the headboard is the focal point with its bold pattern, and the weight of the purple-blue toned drapery adds contrasting vertical elements.  Who wouldn't want to retire to this heaven every night?

The Closet
 Who can forget this closet?!?!?!  Waking up to walk into this space every morning is a girl's dream come true!  (Well, that and to have Carrie's wardrobe to choose from).  It is truly customized for him and her.  The left side takes on the more masculine role with the dark stained wood, and the right side is very feminine with a little more detail added to the white painted wood.
