Sex and the City Official Sourcing Revealed

Thanks to interviews with set decorator Lydia Marks in the Chicago Tribune and production designer Jeremy Conway at Casa Sugar, sources for Carrie's redecorated eclectic pad are now public knowledge! (thanks jordana gold for the heads up!)

'Sex' and the settee

Thankfully, the funky yet fabulous look can be recreated with pieces and materials accessible to everyday peeps, and not just to members of the trade -- yay!


It may be too intense for some, but the bright blue paint shade is perfectly suiting to Carrie's fashionably loud persona.

The ocean blue hue used in the film is a custom mix by Conway, but it's very close to Benjamin Moore's Electric Blue

(a gallon is $54.99 at aura paint)



The unique patchwork piece of art in Carrie's redecorated entry is a Paul Smith needlepoint hanging from the Rug Company. I didn't realize it spelled out LOVE! (Thanks Kay for pointing that out)


The graphic purple and white damask rug is also from the Rug Company. The Tibetan wool design is Overleaf by Marni and costs $80 per square foot.image

The upholstery fabric on the twin settees is "Amanda Lee" from the Silk Trading Co  (The linen fabric is listed at $110 a yard)

For close matches to other elements of the design scheme, check out my previous post and Casa Sugar's 'get the look'
