You probably remember the Novogratzs (they with the two sets of twins and three additional kids) from their reality show 9 By Design, and from some of the outrageous projects they've done around New York City. They're super fun to watch, and I love their work, as 'out there' as it is, sometimes.
But, I really appreciated seeing just how diverse Bob and Cortney Novogratz's talents are, in the latest issue of Rue Magazine. The pair took on a small prewar railroaded East Village apartment, and showed beautiful restraint in their decoration...
Over the couch, an oversized photograph (a favorite trick of the Novogratzs) sits perfectly inside the molding - something I've never seen before!
The homeowner had an impressive collection of antique and vintage goods, which the Novogratzs helped display to perfection...
I think everyone needs the "A Man Walks into a Bar" sign over their barcart. And those dining chairs are just plain awesome.
I think the moody blue and green hues work beautifully for this bachelor's apartment, and read neutral enough to let his vintage collections really take center stage.
Have a great day!
