In the first season - when Miranda's heart took a lickin' (from countless dates and dumps) yet kept on tickin' - the color palette for her place was purposely black and blue. "We used all the shades you'd find in a bruise," says Conway. "Dark blues, plums, deep teals."
When Miranda bought a new place on Manhattan's Upper West Side, she came to terms with her single-status and learned to lighten up. "She's less the walking wounded; she's more confident and secure," Conway says, "Her new apartment is sophisticated and indicative of a successful New York City woman. A partner in a law firm could afford a big pre-War apartment in the 80s and all the modern appliances, so we gave it to her."
