Novogratz @ the Mint

Saturday's home & garden section of the charlotte observer had a great article about designers Cortney & Robert Novogratz coming to Charlotte's mint museum this Thursday Nov 15, 7-9 pm.  (Admission is only $10; $5 for museum members). 

As much as I immerse myself in design circles, I must admit I wasn't entirely familiar with their work.  So of course I did a mad search on pinterest & around the web to find more of their designs. I struck gold when I did a "novogratz" search at apartment therapy. Here are some of the images that piqued my interest...

The first few images are of Suzanne Vega's apartment.  Love her!!! ("Tom's Diner" is a regular listen on my i-tunes).  Don't you just love the mix of vintage & modern ... and the colour combo, with pops of turquoise & pink?


 Here are more inspiring Novogratz designs ...

Now, to find the time to watch some reality TV. The Novogratz' show '9 By Design' launched on Bravo in 2009 (featuring the couple & their seven children).  And they are now in their second season of "Home by Novogratz" on HGTV. Must find time(the constant quest, right?)to watch some of their past episodes on-line and get even more inspired.

I'm planning to make it to the Mint Thursday evening.  Looking forward to hearing their take on design.  Turns out the couple actually met in Charlotte, and both say the South has influenced their design aesthetic.
Let me know if you'll be able to make it.  I'd love to sit with other area design fans & take notes together. 

Have an amazing week!
