Downtown Chic Book Release

New York City–based couple Robert & Cortney Novogratz have been renovating & designing unique & hip homes for families for over ten years. Describing their signature style as a sophisticated but bohemian mix of high & low, new & old, they offer their realistic advice on how to create original, warm interiors with ease. One part practical guide, one part inspirational volume on creating a look for the home, DOWNTOWN CHIC pairs humorous anecdotes about the pitfalls & pleasures of renovation with a treasure trove of decorating tips: how to use both boutique & flea-market finds; how to inject personality into a room affordably; how to decorate kids’ rooms so they appeal to children & adults; how to easily rehabilitate outdated furnishings; and many more. In each of the ten projects featured—which include a townhouse in New York City, a country house in Massachusetts, and a beach house in Brazil—before & after shots document the agony and ecstasy of any renovation project, as well as revealing the design duo’s vision and remarkable ability to see through the most awful of spaces to the amazing home that lies within.  I’m looking forward to its release on April 28!  To pre-order visit  You can also visit the couple’s NYC-based design firm, SIXX Design, for more info.
