Bravo! Sixx Designs Sizzle

Let me be the first to admit that I am completely and utterly hooked onto Bravo TV programming. I’m a Real Housewives {of virtually everywhere} junkie, Top Chef and Project Runway {pre-Lifetime + a carton of Ben and Jerry’s on my couch} are my idea of heaven. Hey, I’ve even watched episodes of Flipping Out, Kell on Earth, NYC Prep, Millionaire Matchmaker, Shear Genius, Work Out and The Rachel Zoe Porject. {This confession is probably leading you to wonder how I find enough time in my day to tear myself away from Bravo TV and write this blog. Good news my friends, I can actually blog while watching Bravo TV. I am a true multi-tasker!}





When I saw Bravo’s newest idea: 9 by Design, I knew that my DVR was looking on the up and up. And the show hasn’t disappointed.

9 by Design is the story of ¬†married couple Bob and Cortney Novogratz, owners of the NYC based design firm, Sixx Design. According to Bravo, “For more than a decade, this young, hip and artsy couple have developed and designed unique properties in Manhattan, rebuilt entire blocks in the city, and turned funky into fabulous with taste and confidence. In any given week, the duo face daunting construction challenges against rapidly ticking clocks, create sumptuous spaces from wrecks and empty lots, and then decorate the spaces with rare and inspiring collectables.”

But what I find to be the most intriguing is that Cortney and Bob have SEVEN kids. 7!!!! {I thought growing up as 1 of 4 kids was a lot!} Still quoting Bravo: “The couple utilizes their signature mix of vintage and modern, and purchase items that are both high and low end. For example, a treasured family heirloom can be paired with a new piece from Ikea. Or maybe an old coffee table can be painted hot pink and make a fun addition to a girl’s bedroom…. Cortney and Bob realized that they had a true knack for creating dream homes out of wreckage, and their family business was born.”

Thus far {I think we are now about 3 episodes in}, I’m loving the show, but I’m especially loving Bob and Cortney’s quirky, eclectic style. The mix of the modern and vintage and their flea market finds are leading me to believe that you don’t have to be a millionaire to recreate their dreamy decor. Plus, I’m so over the whole “matchy matchy” look. Their style is totally cool and refreshing.



Plus, they make raising seven kids look like a breeze. Even like a giant party! That’s almost as inspiring, if not more inspiring than their designs….
