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…
In this home, we wanted to create a space where they could have the freedom to be kids, but we wanted the style to reflect the aesthetic of the rest of the house. We turned the basement into a playroom by day and home theatre by night. We added lots of storage for toys and kept the space open enough for them to play. The two girls share one bedroom and the four boys share another. At a certain age, I’m sure they won’t like it anymore, but right now they really enjoy being all together.
Our passion is creating homes for families that function well while looking great, and we love the mayhem that is invariably part of that process. While those reasons explain why we decided to do what we do, I think the most important reason is this: a home isn’t just where you live, or at least it doesn’t have to be. A home is who you are.
The houses that we’ve designed and built over the years are testaments to what we’ve been through, representatives of the chapters of our lives together, and concrete proof that having faith in ourselves and one another can accomplish great things.
