Wondering What Happened to The Novogratz Family From '9 By Design?' They're Back!

The huge (and incredibly good-looking!) family everyone loved on Bravo’s show 9 By Design are back in the reality game! Click for pics of their AMAZING family house!

We were obsessed with New York City-based interior designers Robert and Cortney Novogratz‘s show on Bravo, but where did they go?? We got hooked on the show and then it disappeared! So we were so happy to hear that the couple are currently shooting their second reality series! The self-taught designers (and parents of SEVEN kids!) say that their new show is perfect for parents who want to buy on a budget—but don’t want it to look that way.

Their new show on HGTV is called Home by Novogratz. Bob, 48, and Cortney, 39, say they will “take on residential design projects — customizing eclectic finds, turning trash to treasure, and mixing colors and textures in innovative ways,” which sounds very similar to what they did on 9 By Design.

The Novogratz’s unique taste is evident in their choice of names for their SEVEN (!) kids: Wolfgang (Wolfie), 13, Tallulah and Bellamy, 12, Breaker, 9, Five and Holleder (Holly), 5, and Major, 2. Eclectic is an understatement! Just like their last show, all the kids will be appearing on the upcoming 30-minute series.

The couple bought their famous home on NYC’s West Side Highway for $4.3 million in 2007. After they rebuilt and decorated the property, they flipped it back on the market for $25 million! The price has since been reduced to $18,950,000—and it’s still for sale. For 5 beds, 4.5 baths, and 7,180 square feet in Manhattan, it’s a bargain right?

I never knew this creative family was on another show before. I certainly dig this Home By Novogratz show on HGTV. They make their efforts seem so effortless–even though it’s not!
Wish they could come do my home, in Dallas! They’re listed on my Bucket LIST. Their kiddos rock!

I can not believe that Bravo would cancel such a smart & uplifting show! It is so disappointing to see the trashy drama filled shows that are aired instead on Bravo. I genuinely hope that this article is correct & that 9 by design is mo Inc to HGTV.! I love this smart & classy family.

LOVED 9 BY DESIGN!!!! This hgtv show…first show underwhelming…little more “commercial” and cookie cutter. Inventive and exciting talented couple. Hope for more family moments!

Their kid’s names are kinda disturbing. I don’t get why people choose to name their kids outrageous names.
