Novogratzs' Go Back To School

(Blinded by the dimples on this power couple.)


Today, I have the absolute pleasure of sharing what Robert and Cortney Novogratz of Sixx Design have been up to lately (besides their new, and highly anticipated show on HGTV.)  I received an email a couple of weeks ago from their "people" about a wonderful design makeover they were doing for a school in need.  Here is the just of what it said...

"Our clients Robert and Cortney Novogratz are doing a $50, 000 school makeover in Orlando, Florida!  For a school that really needs the help!  To create a well-designed, organized and inspirational space for a K-5 public school, who have won a nationwide contest sponsored by Bounty!"

I, of course, was totally on board and told them to send the details on over....soooo, here is the fun outcome of this worthy, and heartfelt service provided by Robert and Cortney.



It doesn't look like a bad place to learn.  Just a little sterile.  Uninspiring is the word that comes to mind.  But, check out how it looked after the Novogratzs' got a hold of it...



Ummmm hello, super cute, kid-sized Panton chairs.  How fun is that florescent "Dream" sign.  They always come up with the neatest "word" signs.  I see it as, kind of, one of their signatures.


How fun, right?  Dull and institutional...no more!  How much do you want to bet those kids are going to have some serious rock, paper, scissors battles to decide who gets to sit on those fabulous poufs!



Well done Bob and Cortney!  My guess is, these kids will never forget you!  Also, for all of us.  Keep an eye out for their new show on HGTV, "Home by Novogratz," scheduled to premier this summer!  I'm sure I'm not alone when I say.... "YAY!!!" in regards to that!  Til then...

If I could be two people, I'd be there- adore their sense of style and what a fabulous project- love love the mini Pantons and the dream sign.

After seeing how "cool" they made a gym, I think this seems right up their alley. What a great place to learn. As a music teacher, this makes me wildly happy! Thanks for posting as I hadn't seen any press on this. WOW, what a smile to the day!

I fell in love with the couple when they had a show on Bravo tv! I'm so excited they're now coming to HGTV! The transformation to the school is so amazing and inspiring! How wonderful they put such creative design into the school!
