I love 9 by design.

Sunday, May 30, 2010

Have you all seen 9 by Design on Bravo? I love, love, love this show.

Bob and Cortney Novogratz are two very brilliant, creative, self taught designers. They started buying, renovating, and reselling properties in NY, and have designed some of the most remarkable homes that I have ever seen. Their style is completely different from what I thought I loved, and they have completely made me rethink what I'd like to do in my own space. Yes. They are that good.

And for the record, I still want need an English roll arm sofa.


The husband and wife duo started Sixx Design, after their six {very fortunate} children - Wolfgang, twins Tallulah & Bellamy, Breaker, and twins Five {yes, he is their 5th child} & Holleder . Yes, that's 2 sets of twins. Bob and Cortney have since added child #7, Major. I have always preferred traditional names, but I actually like their kids' names. Maybe I think these names are cool because the family is so cool. That's probably it. As far as I'm concerned, they can do no wrong.


Along with their 7 uniquely named children, Bob and Cortney have a fabulous book, hit TV show {I am assuming it's a hit -- it has to be!} and wildly successful business. They recently listed their newest home for $18 million. A home that was purchased for $1.5 million back in 2004. Amazing.

I finally caved and ordered Downtown Chic. Cannot wait for it to arrive!

This may very well be the coolest family in the US. If they're looking to adopt a girl in her mid 20s {I like to consider 27 mid 20s - just go with it} I'm in. I love kids, am very clean, and love all aspects of design. I would even consider taking a position as their nanny.

Their country home.

In case you need a little more eye candy, I must share some of the brilliant work of Sixx Design. I love Tallulah and Bellamy's room {top left}. Their house {top right} is the one they started out in on the first episode. They have since relocated twice {to a rental and then to their new home}, and currently have both homes for sale. Love it. The giant blob thing {bottom right} is actually a desk. I am not so much a fan but can appreciate its uniqueness, and love the rest of the room.


If you haven't watched 9 by Design, tune in to Bravo every Tuesday night at 10:00 ET/PT.
