Recently I was approached by the Marketing Team of SIXX Design, a dynamic New York City design firm, enquiring as to whether I would be interested to help promote "Downtown Chic" (published by Rizzoli, New York) the soon to be released first design book co-written by husband & wife team Cortney & Robert Novogratz, the founders of SIXX Design! How excited was I?? I absolutely love interior books, and am always so excited when I hear about fabulous new releases - anything to do with interior design, architecture & decorating. To be contacted directly to promote it through Haven Home is a great honour!
SIXX Design is a fabulously chic & hip design firm established by this couple over more than a decade ago. They have developed & designed many unique properties in Manhattan, rebuilt entire city blocks & turned funky into fabulous, with every detail considered & implemented with the utmost style & luxury.
To their enormous credit, not only do they run an incredibly successful design firm, they are parents to seven children. Since the first SIXX Design project in Chelsea, the duo has developed & designed fantastic living spaces in Great Barrington, Massachusetts & Trancoso, Brazil, not to mention two fabulous Soho properties that sold for record prices.
Describing their signature style as a blend of sophistication with bohemian new & old, they offer realistic advice on how to create original, warm interiors with ease. One part practical guide, one part inspirational volume on creating a look for the home, DOWNTOWN CHIC shares humorous anecdotes about both the pitfalls & pleasures of renovation ,with a treasure trove of decorating suggestions.
