Just for fun I wanted to write a series of posts this week highlighting the design-related things for which I am thankful. There is so much out there that inspires me on a daily basis whether it’s another blog or a store window that I pass by and this week I want to share some of my favorites. Today’s post is about two people that constantly cause me to think outside the box and consider doing things that would otherwise never cross my mind.
Bob and Courtney Novagratz, if you haven’t heard of them are a husband/wife team who specialize in unique, eclectic, and unexpected design projects. I first saw them on one of their design shows, Nine by Design which was named due to the fact that they have 7 kids! Oh yes, 7 kids while running a design business!! I love their attitude toward design because they are not traditional in any way and do not box themselves in by any rules. And although they design for some pretty big league clients, they still shop antiques, thrift stores, and eBay. You can find them now on HGTV’s Home By Novagratz and you can find all of their products, including their book, their paint collection for Stark, and much more on their website:
|funky, modern nursery|
|dying to use their gold(metallic) paint!|
|their take on family life is much like their design philosophy: keep it fun, easy, and functional|
|somehow even with all the quirky details, their kitchen and dining room still feel warm and friendly|
|their always fun and creative details!|
