In the mid-2000’s, I lived directly across the street from Sarah Jessica Parker in the West Village. Whenever she stepped out of her gorgeous brownstone, I craned my neck to catch a glimpse inside. Yesterday, Vogue posted a mini-house tour with SJP, and my years of waiting finally paid off. Unlike a lot of celebrity homes, Parker’s decor is warm, inviting and comfortable; the baby gate, well-worn velvet couch and bookshelves teeming with dog-eared books indicate that its residents actually live there.
Since I’m a home decor junkie, I watched the video about 25 times to nab the following screen captures for my interior design Pinterest board, but you should definitely watch the interview below. I’ve also included a small product round-up showing how to emulate the look — which is surprisingly very affordable and easy to accomplish.
PS – Pardon the blurry and fuzzy shots, it was a little tricky to get clear footage!

1. Ikea Besta TV Storage Combination – If don’t have custom-built shelving around your TV, fake it till you make it with some Ikea. I’d probably lose the creepy glass doors and also the opaque white ones to give it more of a bookshelf feel.
