**SO NOW THE MOVIE IS OUT AND EVERYONE CAN FINALLY SEE THE BEAUTY I WAS TALKING ABOUT! BELOW I'VE ADDED IMAGES VIA APARTMENT THERAPY THAT HAVE SURFACED OF CARRIE'S NEW PLACE -- ENJOY!! **
So I saw the movie last night and don't worry, I won't ruin it for anyone. There will be no talk here of "dream sequences," weddings, pregnancies and break-ups -- but I will give you a sneak peak of a certain someone's drop-dead-gorgeous apartment!
Art director Ed Check and set decorator Lydia Marks did a fantastic job on this character's space. I won't tell you whose space it is as that will be giving too much away, but here are some of the elements that come together to make this apartment totally amazing and totally lust-worthy:
Clockwise: White Parsons Desk, Mirrored Coffee Table, Mixed Media Collage (with more pinks, blues and greens), Small table lamp with Bronze Base and White Shade, Chenille Shag Area Rug, Bright Blue Painted Walls with White trim, White Ceramic Vases, Chrome Bar Cart, Large White and Gold Table Lamp, Mirrored Vanity (I think it had a round mirror though- not sure!)
Other features I can't find online matches for:
- a fabulous large scale beige upholstery fabric with deep olive, rust and gold paisley designs
- White built-in storage unit with cushioned-banquette seating and open concept shelving on top
So that's all I can remember and I hope I got it right. It's probably hard to imagine these separate elements working all together but trust -- it's stunning! I can't wait for all the other design bloggers to see the apartment too so I can hear their takes on it and hopefully some pics will start circulating soon so you can see what I'm talking about.
And for all you non-decor peeps, plot-wise the movie was fabulous! It was very long (over 2 hours) but it really exceeded my expectations. I cried, I laughed and I lusted after the beautiful clothes (and beautiful design -- just wait until you see a special custom closet!)
I hope you enjoy the movie for yourselves!
HERE ARE THE NEW PHOTOS (via apartment therapy):
I was soooo off with the paint colour, eh? I wish I could find shots from her living room too!
