Robert and Cortney Novogratz met at a party 20 years ago and have been together ever since. Native Southerners, and both from large families, they moved to NYC to pursue a job on Wall Street (Bob) and acting (Cortney). After realizing they had a knack for renovating derelict properties into coveted, gorgeously designed homes, they put their talents to use full time and founded The Novogratz, their design firm. They divide their time between New York and Los Angeles. This is their third book.
"The breathtaking view of the Trancoso, Brazil waterfront
surrounded by tropical wildlife is 'the best piece of art' in his
family's vacation home, said designer Robert Novogratz. He and his
wife, Cortney, transformed a ramshackle dwelling to a sanctuary
in paradise for their friends and family, including their seven
children. The result of that transformation by the design duo well
known from their reality TV shows and home decor lines is the
subject of BEACHSIDE BOHEMIAN by Robert and Cortney
