From swilling Cosmopolitans in lower Manhattan with Sanford to missing Carrie's bust of a 35th birthday party at Il Cantinori, we've grown up alongside Carrie Bradshaw, Samantha Jones, Charlotte York, and Miranda Hobbes on Sex and the City.
The iconic six-season series contextualized an idealized Manhattan life in the '90s that fueled the lofty lifestyle aspirations for generations to come. Beyond the covetable clothes, the endless stream of dates, and the limitless lunches, the carefully curated home décor of Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda set the backdrop for the enviable lives of the iconic foursome.
Production designer Jeremy Conway is one of the many people responsible for fueling the dreams of countless aspiring New Yorkers. Conway designed each character's apartment in the series and both movies, moving Carrie from a junior one-bedroom apartment in Greenwich Village to closet heaven with Big on the Upper East Side. "We had our specific looks that we had built around the characters and then we were able to sort of go off and say, right, we want that to be a more modern compact space," Conway told Vogue Living.
In terms of developing the personalities of each of the four women, Conway zeroed in on the details: "We focused a lot more on real materials in the apartments, beautiful wallpapers, just the details and textures that you would expect to see."
Take a peek inside the iconic New York City apartments belonging to the fearsome foursome that we all know and love.
