Robert and Cortney Novogratz created seven gorgeous children and six New York renovations in just 15 years. Now called Sixx Design, here they tell their story…
We finally moved in two days before Thanksgiving. The house wasn’t quite finished, so we put a tablecloth on a large toolbox and used it as a buffet. It was freezing; the heat had not yet been turned on and my entire extended family was on their way to spend the holiday with us. The electric company told us it would be three weeks before they could get to us. I was three months pregnant and in a panic. There were a few guys from the electric company working on our street, so I bought a huge box of cookies and some hot chocolate for the workers and gave them my best pregnant pleas. We had heat that afternoon. Soon after, my family arrived and we all enjoyed a great holiday together.
After they left, we finally finished the house. It had taken seven months to complete. We were elated but couldn’t afford to live in it, so friends rented the third floor and Robert’s sister moved into the garden flat.
