Hope you all have a warm and sunny weekend full of fun decor projects and more gardening. While you’re out running errands for those projects, I highly suggest you stop at your local bookstore and grab a copy of Sixx Design’s “Downtown Chic”, that I mentioned in a post late last year (or online). Jo and I recently got our hands on copies and it is SO inspirational for those of us who are renovating houses on tight budgets. The book showcases seven of Robert and Cortney Novogratz’s projects, from town houses in NYC, a country house in Massachusetts to a beach house in Brazil. I have a hard enough time going through renos in my house with 6 cats, and these guys did it with 6 kids. (!!!!) The photos are exceptional, as you may have noticed in posts we’ve published here, here and here of their work. Oh, and if you get to page 20, check out who they’ve got listed under blogs they frequent. 🙂
Thank you for this post. I just received a mail that this book is finally been shiped to me and will end up in my mailbox in a couple of days. It was nice to have a sneaky-peak into it 🙂
It really looks like a great book! I’ll ask my husband to buy it for my b’day!
I’ve gotta have this book! i’m going to look for it tomorrow.
Wow, I need that book! Eye candy everywhere!
I’ve just finished reading the book… excellent! I plan to work with retrofitting and I found some very interesting tips there, not to say the design and style are awesome!
