When we think of Sarah Jessica Parker we think Sex and the City. And what does Sex and the City make US think of? Unrivaled glamour and style! As usual SJP delivers with effortlessly curated personal style, but this time translated into her decor. Her quirky New York townhouse is a richly coloured eclectic space with accents of dark wood against bold pistachio walls – even more gorgeous than we could have imagined. Thanks to Vogue’s ’73 Things You Never Knew About Sarah Jessica Parker’ we have also learned of her incredible interior design with a video tour of her family home.
As you enter the house through a tall dark door, it’s uncertain as to how the space will pan out once inside. The slim hallway boasts glossy chestnut flooring, a seventies style runner up the steep staircase and a cleverly placed side table under an ornate gold framed mirror. Not much is given away, but we are intrigued!
The living room walls are lined floor to ceiling with bookshelves surrounding a stunning feature fireplace. On the opposite side of the room there are more bookshelves facing an emerald coloured velvet sofa which is scattered with watermelon pink cushions. Our eyes are drawn to the three-tier brass drinks trolley and soft task lighting which gives the room a warm glow. This space looks like the perfect spot to enjoy a good book and a tipple of choice…
The next room is much brighter with white walls and ashy exposed floorboards which are stacked high with gorgeous artwork and a unique glowing display. Illuminated in natural light by the floor to ceiling windows on the opposite side, this fresh space is perfect for the studio style gallery wall.
This room opens up into a further dining and living area with the surprising feature of table tennis board in the centre – something we have never seen before but love how it brings a playful element into the sophisticated space! A patterned cream chesterfield sits in front of the classic townhouse windows, with the light walls and matching white accessories contrasting against the dark piano. No living room is complete without a statement chair, and Sarah Jessica Parker has hit the jackpot with her stunning green and wooden armchair to enjoy the music in… This little music station packs plenty of personality, and we’d love to know the stories behind the mini drums and maracas!
Just like the beautiful owner, this home is filled with a unique personal style. From the deep green walls to the sea of amazing art and delicate accents of colour painted along the doors we have fallen in love with every corner of this eclectic and thoughtfully styled home. A dinner party here would undoubtedly end in song at the piano!
