Ever watch 9 By Design? It is the best design show and has inspired me personally. 9 By Design shows you can have it all. This married couple owns a successful design company and even have seven children. Yes, you read that right. Seven.
I can barely juggle a husband and two dogs.
The reality show follows husband and wife design team Robert and Cortney Novogratz, owners of the NYC based design firm, Sixx Design. Cortney and Robert realized that they had a true knack for creating dream homes out of wreckage, and from that, their family business was born.
Cortney and Robert decorate spaces with rare and inspiring collectables. The couple utilizes their signature mix of vintage and modern, and purchase items that are both high and low end. For example, a treasured family heirloom can be paired with a new piece from Ikea. Or maybe an old coffee table can be painted hot pink and make a fun addition to a girl’s bedroom.
My favorite thing 9 by Design does is design with overscaled typography. Large random words or letters displayed on the wall.
I’m going to incorporate some typography in our home interior design. It will give us a chance to include some industrial design that we love… on a smaller level.
Here are some I’ve come across at the flea market. I haven’t quite found what I’m looking for yet.
I’m looking for a large bright “C”! It is the first letter of our last name.
Let’s hope they bring 9 By Design back for season 2!
