Remember These Guys?

The Novogratz Family
Robert and Cortney Novogratz, the owners of Sixx Design in NYC, are the couple who wrote Downtown Chic, a book that chronicles the renovation and decoration of their numerous houses, all while having six kids....wait....make that seven. They are fun, sophisticated and have created a sort of "formula" for living a stylish life with a brood of young kids in the heart of New York.
Well, guess what?
Bravo TV thinks they are worth a more personal look! If you want to see behind the scenes and into the life of this couple who seems to have it all, check out 9 BY DESIGN a new docu-series on April 13th at 11:00 ET/PT for the Premiere. (Moves to 10PM Tuesday, April 20th). It is an eight episode series where the couple take on a string of projects over a nine month period, taking the projects from wrecks to wonderful. Watch out HGTV!
Will you be watching?

Saw the commercial on that...IDK
There seems to be a reality show for everything these days.
Like the modern gameshow of the 80's.....
I am sure there will be much inspiration though.

Yes! I am very intrigued by this family who seem able to get so much done with so many little ones running around. I had one and was exhausted! Will be interesting to see them in action.

I'll be watching as long as it gets broadcast on Hulu! (I don't have a tv... probably the only person in the US w/o one)

Have you watched Kell on Earth? It's GREAT!

The design aspect I'm in on....the "let's take our cameras and film your life". No thanks. Don't need that.

Susie @ Maddie's Nest said...

Thanks for the heads up. I'll add it to my "for when husband is out of town" DVR file!

I will totally be watching! Though I am sure it will make me feel completely inadequate!! Marija

Hi LMF!
It's the wave of the future...cheap to make and ther will always be an audience I think! As long as I still get my "House" and "Glee" I think I will be OK.

Hi L&L! I'll be thinking of you all when I watch!

Hi Tracy!
I have teens and it does not get any easier. I am so interested to see how they do it. I saw on a trailer that they were interviewing nannies. As soon as they said there were 7 kids, the looks on the nannies faces....priceless!!!

katiedid said...

Scott...you are probably better off! And yes I watch Kell! I want to cut her hair.

Linda....the thought of someone seeing my house in it's "natural" state fills me with dread!

Sounds like a very interesting show! I wonder if it will come on HGTV Canada??

Bravo showed an episode of this last week. A bit like watching a car crash - can't take your eyes off but you know it's going to haunt you afterwards. I always feel so sorry for the kids in these shows. Unfortunately in this case (at least on the one episode) only a little of their designs were shown. The husband - whew - she deserves a medal.

I saw a commercial for that show- looks interesting!

can't wait for this. Way to go bravo. THey were becoming the Real Housewives channel with the loss of project runway. I think this will help.
It will be nice to finally see a family of many children with an awesome home.

I love this design duo.
Monika over at Splendid Willow did a brilliant post about them and showed a great parade of their work. Her blog is amazing and I urge you to jump across and have a look!

Thanks for the ups on the book - on my wishing list now!
