This Is What Carrie Bradshaw's Upper East Side Apartment Would Look Like Today
Yes, it's hard to believe, but it's been just over 20 years since the first episode of Sex and the City aired back in 1998. Since then, we watched as Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, and Samantha's lives (and fashion sense) changed throughout the years. In addition to their evolving love lives, careers, and clothing choices, it's safe to assume that their home décor styles changed with the times as well. Twenty years later, we couldn't help but wonder what Carrie Bradshaw's apartment would look like today.
Interior design startup Modsy had the same question in mind when they recently reimagined how Carrie's Upper East Side apartment would look in 2018. They took the liberty of redecorating the iconic piece of NYC real estate for Carrie and even imagined how the rest of the girls would decorate the space if they moved in. Take a look at the refreshed apartment below and shop a few of the products found inside to get the look for yourself.
"Inspired by her original apartment and sense of fashion, we thought that Carrie’s Modsy style would be a combo of eclectic and modern, which we call Mod Collector," says design history PhD and Modsy's director of style, Alessandra Wood. The colour palette and mid-century décor are a nod to her original space, but the pieces feel refreshed and contemporary.

"We know that Charlotte would bring her discerning eye to Carrie's apartment," explains Wood. "We pegged her as a Refined Connoisseur, a mix of all things classic with a minimal twist."
"We imagined that no-nonsense Miranda would want an apartment that gets the job done," says Wood. "We thought her straightforward sensibility was well represented by our Contemporary Minimalist style."
"We wanted the apartment to reflect Samantha’s unapologetic love of sex and portray her as the strong, classy person she was," Wood explains. "The apartment is clean and almost minimal, but at the same time bold and dramatic."
