The New York Post reports this week that 'Sex in the City' designers Lydia Marks and business partner Lisa Frantz were hired recently to replicate the famous film closet.
The result was a stunning $175,000 knock-off of character Carrie Bradshaw's clotheshorse couture dream closet. In the movie, Carrie (played by actress Sarah Jessica Parker) receives her dream closet as a gift from her fiancée, Mr. Big (Chris Noth). The copy closet designed by Marks and Frantz (pictured below) features:
- The same strips of hand-beveled mirrored glass from the movie closet;
- Vanity designed to accommodate specific hair dryers, curling irons and flat irons;
- The closet doors are made of frosted glass, etched with an Art Deco flower-and-butterfly pattern;
- Built-in cabinetry carefully designed to hold more than 400 pairs of designer shoes, dozens of handbags, racks of clothes organized by label, as well as drawers full of over-sized bling and specialty sized compartments for sunglasses.
If you had your own personal dream come true, what film set design would you like to replicate on your own turf? For us being professional organizers, it's the entire home from Something's Gotta Give or It's Complicated because the movie is based in nearby Santa Barbara and features a favorite new style, Mediterranean-revival. What about you?
