Sex and the City's swoon-worthy home fashions
While the critics' haven't exactly been heaping the praise on Sex and the City 2, I can say that the shoes and the sets continue to be fabulous!
Bold wallpaper, the great blue sofa, below, (that Big shamefully puts his shoes on!) and, of course, a well-organized walk-in closet all star in Carrie and Big's modern new apartment (and may even steal a few scenes from the frocks).
While many of the sets are gorgeous - the luxury hotel in Abu Dhabi is out of this world - I was most taken with Carrie and Big's place - the grey walls, the fun blend of mid century modern and graphic prints, and the excellent balance of masculine and feminine accents (like the strong lined sofa mixed with that pretty floral throw pillow) will all be taking up residence in my personal inspiration file.

There are a few jokes thrown in for home fashionistas, too, like Carrie saying "I've been cheating on fashion with furniture" and the admission that it took a year and a half for them to settle on the sofa.
Carrie even chats with Big about how she needs just one more piece to finish the room - a conversation I'm sure many of us will find familiar!
