Is anyone else out there as obsessed with the Novogratz family from 9 by Design as I am? Yeah, I thought so. If you haven't been watching this show I think you are seriously missing out. The reality series, on Bravo (the home of all things awesome and trashy,) follows Bob and Courtney Novogratz and their 7 (yes 7!) children, as they renovate fabulous home after fabulous home in downtown NYC. I don't know what I envy more, their exquisite taste, the fact that they can handle 7 children and still live in the city, or that they seem to be able to manage themselves (and their children) in high stress situations like I could only dream. Whatever it is, it makes for some serious must see TV. To say that I LOVE their style wouldn't do it justice. If I won the lottery the very first thing I would do is hire this team to build me the home of my (aka their) dreams. I am so inspired by the way that they mix such eclectic pieces to make a home that is modern, clean, and surprisingly family friendly.
Unbelievably gorgeous, right?
Well, since I don't see myself winning the lottery anytime soon (I guess I should buy the ticket first) I will have to settle for the fabulous new book that they just published. It's called Downtown Chic and it looks like it's going to be one fantastic read.
When it comes to design (and parenting) I can use all the help I can get. What better way then to go straight to the source? Now if only I could have that unlimited budget as well. Hmmmm maybe it's time to get that lottery ticket.
