HGTV & the Novogratz rock it out in my NYC neighborhood!

Have you guys been watching the Novogratz show on HGTV? First of all, I love that HGTV is taking things in a new direction with this hip and stylish design duo. I had the pleasure of meeting courtney and chatting with her about all things design, and let me tell you...she is a blast, a truly sweet person. Gotta love that...

Well, this Saturdays episode is sure to rock your socks off. They took a  2,000 square foot penthouse apartment right in my Gramercy Park neighborhood (the best hood) with 180-degree views of NYC and did a "design blowout"! They turned it from all white + uninteresting to über-chic quickly and with a super small budget.  Using pops of color, cool art, an array of accessories, a fireplace tower and spectacular lighting (not to mention a “Family” rug from their upcoming home décor collection, NOVOGRATZ! Exciting things to come for this power duo. 

How powerful is this space? It's the perfect summertime space.
