SATC2: Carrie & Big's Apartment

A friend of mine said to me: "That movie made me feel bad about my life". While I can't say I felt the same way . . . I was drooling over everything in Carrie and Big's apartment. The decor is like a good record. At first it's just "meh", but after the second or third listen/look you just can't get enough. What I really loved, was that living room!
Oh, the rug!




But, alas, that rug costs an arm . . .and a leg! Then, my mind wandered to an article about Ali Wentworth and George Stephanopoulos' Georgetown home. . .and specifically THIER living room rug. Here it is:
 

The funny thing about this rug . . .she painted it herself! So, why couldn't anyone do that to create the look of the Marni Candy Rug that so wonderfully graces the floor in Carrie's apartment?

Planning to see the movie this weekend or next (whenever I can convince hubby that it's worth a sitter), but I loved their empty apart in the original movie so I cannot wait to see it decorated! Thanks for the post!
