The Washington Post interviews "Top Design" finalist Ondine Karady in her Logan Circle condo. A former set designer, she worked on "Sex and the City" and Spike Lee's "25th Hour," among others. Ondine took home furniture from those sets to decorate her Logan Circle condo, which The Washington Post photographed and labeled "Danish-modern-meets-boho." Do you agree? Ondine also shared tips for making a "cookie-cutter" condo into a home. Read Ondine's tips and find out which of her furniture pieces come from "Sex and the City" below the jump...

Ondine mixed the movie set pieces with vintage furniture and IKEA shelves. She recommends shopping at thrift stores for table lamps; hanging framed artwork to decorate plain walls; and using wallpaper to spruce up a room.

The "Sex and the City" pieces in Ondine Karady's DC condo include: the minimalist oatmeal living room couch was used in Charlotte York's Upper East Side home; the pony-skin bench was made by Aidan Shaw; and illustrations from Russian artist Aleksandr Petrovsky.
