Sex and the City: Miranda Hobbes

Inside Miranda's Apartment

7 of 8

In case you thought Miranda was all business, Conway added some accents that definitely reveal a kinder, gentler side. "There's a framed picture of Cynthia as a little girl, dresses as an angel, in the bedroom. And the rug in the living room - which we found at designer ABC Carpet and Home - is a delicate cream-colored brocade." Conway is also proud of the sheer window treatments he snatched up at ABC as well. "When the light comes through them, they cast the softest shadows." The geometric lamp on her bedside stand is also a light-hearted touch - it evokes images of champagne bubbles. "It fit the color theory well, but it also seemed festive and fun--especially right for her bedroom."

It's easy to duplicate Miranda's decor, says Conway, if you keep your color scheme cool (the walls are actually light-lavender although they appear white) and your accents simple and elegant. "If you want your interior to look polished and put together - and you don't really have a lot to work with - start at the floor and work your way up." He "ebonized" the solid oak floors of Miranda's place with a dark stain. "Everything in the room stands out more smartly," he says. Think conservative, with an eye to proportion rather than surface embellishment. "No splashy colors or hip clutter. Keep it lean, mean and clean."
