I apologize for the late post! Blame it on the office sickness that’s lurking around Shaw Media headquarters these days. I really enjoyed Home By Novogratz this week because Bob and Cortney designed two spaces for families that were colourful, personal and a lot of fun.
Episode 9 took the Novogratzes to Long Branch, NJ to design a family-friendly condo for their friend and client, Dave Barry.
The bold hallway makes a statement as soon as you walk in…
…and carries into the dining area, which includes a signature Novogratz lightbox text treatment (they have a similar sentiment/treatment in their own kitchen!).
If you have a pink-loving daughter, then this is the dream room for her!
The sons’ room gets bright blue walls and a rainbow carpet, while the master bedroom, below, is super-sunny yellow. I can’t imagine ever sleeping in! Though when you’re on the beach, you probably want to get out and hit the waves asap.
Families and New Jersey were the themes this week as Bob and Cortney travelled back to the Garden State to design a playroom and screening room area for a fun-loving family with three kids.
The wallpaper on the back wall is a similar treatment to the wallpaper the Novogratzes used in the model apartment last week.
The stairway teaches about colour and reading, but still looks pretty cool, don’t you think? And how about that slide?! My brother and I would have loved that growing up.
Behind the stairs is the adult space — the screening room complete with wine fridge, microwave and mini-bar.
What did you think of this week’s family-friendly designs?
