The Novogratz

I have just discovered The Novogratz! I watched my first programme of theirs last night, and was absolutely entranced, I loved it. Am I a bit behind - who else knows about this amazing husband & wife team? Firstly, they have seven kids - so right there, as a mother of three, I take my hat off to them :) 

Robert and Cortney Novogratz have built a signature design brand for themselves creating fabulous, luxe and inspired residential projects across Manhattan. Last night I watched them design and re-decorate the two kids' bedrooms of a New York family. Taking their inspiration from a green chandelier in the boys' room, they painted the ceiling a vibrant green, which looked fantastic against the gorgeous white cornice. A new pink chandelier was bought for Eliza's room and her roof was painted hot pink. Robert and Cortney like their kids' rooms to be sophisticated and fun.

New carpet was laid in a checker board effect

Green toile wallpaper reflects the green roof, and contrasts the boys' basket ball hoop

Magnetic and chalk board paint were used together to make this fun wall element

An antique bed was made more contemporary by painting in glossy blue

Talented artist, Linda Mason, painted this portrait of the kids. The base was painted by the kids themselves

The Novogratz alternated wallpaper in stripes in Eliza's room for a fun look
