Space of the Week: The Sex and the City Archives

When interior decorator Ondine Karady left the set of Sex and the City back in 2004, she was given the chance to buy ornaments, furniture, and pieces of décor. While Sarah Jessica Parker got first dibs, Karady, who worked on the series as an assistant set decorator for two years, scored many items and used them to style her 900-square-foot Williamsburg apartment. Here, in the foyer, guests are greeted by a Chinese-style console, which used to belong to Mr. Big. The felt wall installation is by Kathryn Walter from Felt Studio. Photo: Jennifer Karady

The marble Saarinen dining table sports a monkey vase, one of eighteen made by Karady to decorate tables at her wedding. The crafty decorator also made the Styrofoam-cup chandelier. Photo: Jennifer Karady

Creativity runs in the family. Karady modeled for these photos taken by her sister, Jennifer. Their father, a chemist, made the sculpture using custom blown lab glass. The portrait of a man singing Karaoke is by Fritz Chesnut. The silk taffeta curtains appeared in Candice Bergen’s apartment when she played the Vogue editor-in-chief on Sex and the City. Karady extended them with Pucci fabric. Photo: Jennifer Karady

Karady’s bed is draped in a vintage Suzani cover, and the blue ceramic lamps are from Lerebours Antiques (220 E. 60th St., nr. Third Ave.; 917-749-5866). A painting from Charlotte’s Sex and the City apartment presides over the bed. Karady’s next project? She might redecorate a client’s apartment to resemble that of Aleksandr Petrovsky, the Russian artist who seduced Carrie in season six. Photo: Jennifer Karady
