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…
Fifteen years ago, my husband Robert and I got engaged and purchased our first home. The house was a condemned building in the middle of Chelsea, a once-neglected neighbourhood in downtown Manhattan that has since become very trendy. At the time, neither of us knew that buying and renovating this building would change our lives, igniting a passion that would sow the seeds for our first future company. Since then, we have renovated and designed numerous buildings in and around New York City, including rebuilding an entire block in SoHo.
Robert and I were first introduced at a party in North Carolina. I was in college and he was working as a stockbroker. It was love at first sight, and a few months later I graduated and we both moved to New York. Over the next three years, Robert worked on Wall Street while I pursued an acting career, but we were both looking for something more fulfilling and exciting than our careers offered. It was quite a shock when we found what we were looking for in a dilapidated brownstone building, and realised we had found our calling.
