Book review / Bokanmeldelse - Downtown Chic


:: Experiment :: Take Risks :: Have fun :: Explore
:: Change :: Invent :: Change again

The Novogratz family's design credo... Love it! This is the book that will make you wish you were a house flipper, have 7 kids and go flea marketing in NY and France.

Cortney and Robert is the married couple behind the successful Sixx Design. The Novogratz' are house flippers and in Downtown Chic, they share some of their fabulous projects.

---------------

Novogratz-familiens designmotto... Digger det! Dette er boken som får deg til å ønske at du pusset opp gamle bygninger, hadde syv barn og dro på loppemarkeder i Frankrike.

Cortney og Robert er ekteparet bak suksessfulle Sixx Design (de hadde seks barn, nå syv!). Paret er det som på godt norsk kalles "house flippers" og i Downtown Chic deler de noen av sine fantastiske prosjekter.

I'm a sucker for fabulous rooms decorated on a close to non existing budget. The room below is a combination of hand me downs and flea market finds.

-------------

Jeg er utrolig svak for fantastiske rom som er designet med nesten ikke-eksisterende budsjetter. Rommet nedenfor er en kombinasjon av arvegods/donasjoner og loppisfunn.



I want the chandelier on the background!! Can you belive it's in the bathroom???

This isn't only a great inspirational guide for interiors, what I really love is the attention paid to detail in the exteriors. You'll definitely get loads of inspiration on how to give new buildings old world charm with antique artifacts.

My favorite build was the 24 Thompson. I actually found the listing for it online, with fabulous, tiny tiny pics... If you want more of this, buy the book!

--------------------

Dette er ikke bare fantastisk inpirasjon på interiørfronten, hva jeg virkelig elsker er fokuset på eksteriøret. Det er veldig inspirerende å se hvordan nye bygg får en følelse av å "alltid" ha vært der gjennom deler fra gamle bygg, både i NY og fra Europa.

Favorittprosjektet mitt er 24 Thompson. Jeg var så heldig å finne salgsannonsen online, med fantastiske miniatyrbilder. Vil du ser mer, er det bare å kjøpe boken ;)


Two of their girls share this bedroom in their current house. It's beyond amazing, and they're STILL decorating on a budget! LOVE!!

I love the "Wall of Women" in the guest room below. Another fabulous room made on a non existing budget with flea market finds.

---------------

I gjesterommet har ekteparet dedikert en vegg til kvinner - helt nydelig! Fargen er litt sterkere enn lys viol og veldig passende til et soverom.


I would like to thank the representatives of Sixx Design and Downtown Chic for sending me the book and being patient with me. (Little baby Stella delayed the review quite a bit...)

If you're interested in purchasing the book, click here.

Jeg vil takke byrået til Sixx Design og Downtown Chic for å ha sendt meg boken, og for å ha vært så tålmodige med meg (Lille Stella har forsinket anmeldelsen ganske kraftig...)

Hvis du er interessert i å kjøpe boken, klikk her. (husk, det er ikke toll på bøker, og amazon har virkelig gode priser!)

I agree, this would be a great book to have. I love this couple's approach to decorating family homes or any home for that matter. Pure eye candy and inspiration.
