9 by Design

   I'm not sure if many of you know the design team of Robert and Cortney Novogratz.  They head their firm 6 Design and have a new Bravo tv show called 9 by Design.  Not only are they parents of 7 kids (hence the name 9 by design) but they also have impeccable style.  It's a mix of contemporary with old world, flee market finds.  Ok maybe the flee markets are in Paris, but nevertheless it's a flee market.
   Their book, Downtown Chic, is a step by step guide of how they approach their jobs and how to go about buying a "wreak" and turning into "ravishing".  Although most people can't readily jump on a plane to go find worldly treasures, most of can find creative, inexpensive ways to achieve our own versions of Downtown Chic.  Hope you enjoy...xoxo

  1. Looks like a great book. . .I'll have to get it. I also love the "not so big house" books by S. Susanka. It's all about smaller, yet nicer over giant mcmansions. Very cool.
