The walls in the single-Carrie apartment are free, except for the living areas, like above the bed (where there are photos, prints and graphics), or in the living room where there’s a big bookshelf with Tv and two sofas.
This is not an excessive house because it’s decorated with taste and matching colors; even if there are too much floral fabrics, but they emphasize the outgoing character of the typical NewYork girl.
In the second film Carrie is not a Miss anymore, she became Mrs. Preston. The married-Carrie apartment’s style is totally different from the single’s one. Surely, it is a beautiful home and mostly of the furniture are 20’s-30’s deco pieces, but the walls are full of paintings and bookshelves, definitely too bulky and suffocating.
Everywhere (on walls, furniture and pillows) there are floral fabrics and tapestries in beige and dark shades as in a typical old upper side couple’s house.
This is the new social status of Carrie Preston and this feeling becomes certainty when Carrie, to persuade her husband to go out, serves him a glass of Brandy in a large heavy bottle taken out from a cart bar in the living room.
