9 By Design

Guess what? It's so not Monday anymore. Whew. Glad that's over for another 6 days. Moving on...

You are probably well aware of this fantabulous design show on Bravo, but if you're not, please allow me to enlighten you.

It's called 9 By Design and it's quickly becoming one of my fave Tuesday night shows.

This new reality show chronicles the life of husband and wife design team Cortney and Robert Novogratz, a.k.a. Sixx Design. For more than 10 years, they have been creating some of NYC's most innovative spaces, from hotels to apartments to empty warehouses. Known for their striking design aesthetic and hip, trendy taste, Cortney and Robert are totally self-taught, (no fancy-schmancy interior design degrees for this duo.)

Oh, and did I mention they have 7 kids? Yup, no kidding: Wolfgang, 12, twins Bellamy and Tallulah, 10, Breaker, 8, twins Five and Hollender, 4, and infant son, Major. Craziness. But it makes for great TV.

I really don't know how they do it. Just watching this show makes me need a nap.

9 By Design airs Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. CST on Bravo, so check it out. Whether you're an architecture buff, budding interior decorator or just a lover of good reality TV, I promise you'll eat this up.

Before we depart, a couple things:

1) Looking for a cool new addition to your furniture collection? Check out Chairs for Charity. Top grafitti artists put their own spin on the classic Eames Molded Plywood chair for an online auction through June 1. All proceeds benefit Operation Design, an organization that brings prominent architecture and design firms together with public school students to create inspiring learning environments.


2) I'll be posting the winner of the May giveaway right here later today or tomorrow morning, so stop back by...it could be you!

Be blessed, lovelies-
