Lucky Numbers…

Let’s start with the number 6, as in Sixx Design.  Then we have to add in the number 7, as in SEVEN children.  Finally, we get to John Lennon’s favorite number, the number 9.  And, more specifically, Bravo‘s wonderful design show, 9 by Design.

Novogratz Family-Michael Weschler for New York Times

Those who know me, know I am sucker for anything shown on Bravo, from those silly Real Housewives to Top Design (the latter mostly because I adore Jonathan Adler, Todd Oldham & seeing what the cukoo-crazy Kelly Wearstler will wear:

rather than it actually being a good show, which I think it isn’t!)

But, Bravo hit the mark for me with their study in numbers, 9 by Design.  I love the dynamic of self-taught designers Bob & Cortney Novogratz navigating the still-glum New York real estate market with their 7! children in tow.  Not only are they fun to watch as a family, but their eclectic design sensibilities are exactly my cup of tea.

I am a huge fan of their mixing vintage with modern, and I am crazy for that menorah in the corner.  I am also a huge fan of that giant Ann Carrington piece in the lobby of the Bungalow Hotel.  I can only hope Bravo brings this back!!!

    I like that 9 by design, but I’d be a nervous wreck in their house. I admire them for getting anything done with all of that kid traffic!
