‘And Like It…’: Shop Interiors to Relive ‘Sex and the City’

so far on Sex and the City Biology And like that…Our beloved main characters have gone through some major changes. What hasn’t changed is that each of these women has their own distinct style – and while their designer clothes and shoes usually get all the attention, their furniture is interesting and original. And like that… 25 different sets were filmed. New York City locations like the Manhattan School of Music auditorium, St. Ambrose’s Restaurant, and East Pole Kitchen and Bar (found in the brownstone of the Upper East Side) all set the scene, and the majority of the apartments were created on impeccably furnished acoustic stages. The only exception was the loft of Charlotte’s new girlfriend Lisa Todd Wexley (played by Nicole Ari Parker), which was filmed in a real apartment and even included an actual photo of Gordon Parks borrowed from his establishment (her other pieces are copies).

Production designer Miguel Lopez Castillo and interior designer Carol Silverman thought about each character’s personal tastes when creating their homes, and imagined how their spaces might have changed in the ten years since we last saw them in Sex and the City 2 Movie. Below, we delve into the best moments from each major group and tell you how to get your favorite character’s look in your home.

“[Showrunner] Michael Patrick King told us that Miranda isn’t interested in interior décor, and her place is comfortable and functional throughout her family’s life,” says Silverman. Despite the somewhat basic pieces of furniture, it’s worth noting that when Miranda and Steve first toured the brownstone in the original series, They had no working electricity. Now, it has an updated kitchen but still retains all its historical charm thanks to details like the exposed brick wall and stone fireplace.” Miranda is pragmatic and intelligent. Its brownstone was a very good investment, and it has all the amenities like a family friendly sectional sofa, reading area and open kitchen with both vintage and modern details,” says Lopez Castillo.

“The living and dining room is moving more toward the grand, with darker colors and more geometric shapes. His collection of recordings and stereo takes up a lot of space,” says Silverman.
