Cortney Novogratz

"We wanted to open the hotel in true Novogratz style, with a big opening party and a crazy ride to New Jersey on our party bus."

WOW! We can’t believe season one of 9 by Design is over. What a fabulous experience, and what an amazing year, filled with more joy and excitement than you could hope for. A new baby, a new house, a new hotel, and so much more! Are we the luckiest people in the world? We think so! Filming the show was so much fun, and we all learned so much, made new friends, and got a chance to share our daily lives and work with all of you!

Thanks so much to our talented director, our devoted producers and all the support we could hope for from Bravo! Not to forget, you the loyal viewers. We were definitely nervous before we took on 9 by Design, but in the end, the show was all we were hoping for and more.

The last episode turned out to be one of our favorites (do I say that every week? I can’t help it! ). We got to spend some chill time at our country home in New England, where we can really unwind, and I loved our tag sale, even though it was a bit eccentric! We raised some cash, got rid of the clutter, and gave Breaker a chance to stand on street corners in his pajamas screaming!!!! Pure bliss. Never mind that we used the proceeds to buy more décor for our projects. For us, that is what it is all about. We do love the chase. Unfortunately, we have been so busy this year in NYC, we don’t get to the country as often as we would like, so our time there is especially important to us.

I agree, I have totally missed this show. Just because adults are acting like adults and children are acting like children doesn't mean the show isn't great. This show should return ASAP!!!!!

I was just reading "Architectural Digest" and thought "what was the show on Bravo I loved so much, with that effortlessly chic, gorgeous, talented couple, their stunning children, that amazing former house overlooking the river (that master bath - so sumptuous!)?" Bravo, PLEASE bring "Nine By Design" back, or at least re-run past episodes. We need a Novogratz "fix"!

Cortney, I love your show, and I love your mom and dad, as well. I am from Columbus, GA and want everyone to know what a wonderful family you come from. Your parents are very involved in their church and do so much for others. Every spring break, your dad takes about 20 young men with limited opportunities on a fishing trip in the Gulf for the week. I know Sandra and Lamar are very proud of you and your wonderful family. I pray that God will continue to bless you and prosper you and your family in every area of your life.

love the show. other realities that play on arguments and stupid explosive relationships are boring to me. i learn alot from your show--design, relationship, clients, juggling creativity with reality. i'm a jewelry designer (rustic luxury) and want to do installations someday. your show inspires!

i'd buy a Tivo just to make sure i catch episodes if you come back!

Loved how every art work pulled together at the end with your theme. I saw that you used the lighted letter boxes again in the hotel. After seeing these in your home (FAMILY), my husband and I went on a rampage to find where you got these...with no avail. Now I see them again in the NJ hotel. Can you please let me know where you can purchase these? Thanks again for showing how 'Modern Design' can be warm and have a personality.

You are raising an amazing family. I love the independence each of the kids seems to have,but are tightly wound to the family. Keep up this amazing show. Can not wait for the new season. Iam a registered nurse and tape all the shows so I can sit,unwind and enjoy them when I come in after a long shift at the hospital.

Wow, last night I realized that Bravo was showing reruns of the show. I quickly sset the tv to record all at anytime day or night. I have been watching the show since day one and I am hooked. I was so bumed out when the last show cloclosed last season. Iam so looking forward to the new season. Iam in love with the family, how you all interact and keep it all together. You put the kids first, each other and your business. They say everything in Texas is bigger,but I think that your show is the biggest that Bravo has added to their line up. Please keep it as up beat and exciting as it as been. PLease please no family drama,cheating or turning on each other. I think that in this day and age your family and show teach us that anything is possible. When I watch your shows i honestly think about it for days afterwards. It is like being a member of the family. Would love to see ya'll come to Texas and do a show in Austin. It is a really cool city with lots of really cool shopping. come to Waco and we will throw you an old fashion Texas bar-be-que. Can't wait to see the new shows. Love yall. sue

WOW! That is something. I'm sure Courtney and Robert will look into this. They have heart. They probably saw the piece as a picture of art and nothing else crossed their minds.

Really miss the show. 'Wish' there was access 'somewhere', either on a blog or on your actual website of the store names you deal with in eppisodes and would no doubt give them more 'bizness' for people that can go when visit the city or live there. For example would 'love' to know what the name of the shop was where got the letters for 'DESIRE'...know it was Paula R________ Ltd. and that was it. Hope someone can respond to the name of this store.

Canada 'just' got this show in last two weeks and L-U-V it!!! Soooo miss NYC and appreciate greatly the running in and around the streets into shops etc like did on the 'Gym' episode when baby was being christined.

I totally agree with you Nancy!! Cortney and Bob are such a cute darling couple and the children are adorable..........but its Cortney who is awesome in my opinion..I love her positive attitude, her work ethic, her resilience and her energy!!! My gawd, I was blown away by her...she has awesome taste too in everything!!! Cortney, you could teach us all a thing or two about being graceful underfire!! Cheers to you and your family...I cant wait to see the next episode. A fan in awe, I remain. Robi

I love this show. It is nice to see a family who put their own family first. There is no pettiness but life's lessons. It is one of the only shows on BRAVO TV worth watching.

Courtney! I loved your show. Actually i was obsessed with it. I even went online when your show wasn't playing to watch reruns. BRAVO PLEASE PLAY MORE. I am an artist so I appreciate good design! My husband and I are interested in eventually doing the same thing. Different avenue but your show is electric. Inspirative. WHEN IS THE NEXT SEASON? Please tell me there is one.

I came across your show halfway into the session. Really enjoyed each episode. Hope BRAVO will post the other episodes online soon. I recognized Courtney and Robert from a magazine article that I tore out awhile back that featured your family/style/home in the country. I thought the decor was fresh, unique and creative. I liked that you seemed more interested in the what functioned best for your family rather than what was traditional. On a side note - I swear I saw Robert and the oldest son at the Memphis International airport recently. I considered shouting out 9 by Design from the car window but decided to keep it classy. If it was you, I hope you enjoyed your visit to Memphis and hope the show is renewed for a new season!

I love the show and watched the London episode with fascination. As an ex-pat Londoner living in New York it was fun. What was the name of the antique store you went to? It was fantastic and I'd love to visit on my next trip back home! Good luck with your properties and the program. It's a refreshing change.

This show is the best on TV. Love the kids. Your decorating style is so refreshing and unique. Would love to see more of your work. You two ROCK! Have a nice summer see you in the fall.

Your show, like your family, is quite unique and you both seem like decent, well-intentioned people. So it’s hard to comprehend how you (as well as artist Ann Carrington and developer David Barry) would know so little about the murderer "Che" Guevara, whose face appears on a version of an Ann Carrington supposedly "Cuban" flag that Robert PROUDLY held up for Courtney while decorating the Bungalow Hotel. The more than 2 million Cubans who have fled the communist hell-hole that Guevara's "revolution" instituted, not to mention the many innocent people whom “Che” personally executed while in charge of La Cabaña prison (my husband’s uncle included… just for speaking out against communism), as well as the thousands of prisoners of conscience that today rot in Castro’s jails ALL deserve a public apology and the removal of this offensive flag from the Bungalow Hotel.

Thank you for making my life as a designer seem simple! I love how you both graciously juggle children and career by simply throwing it all in one giant kettle of creativity. Bravo Cortney and Bob! Looking forward to more!!!!

This show was so hot! I really miss it. It was such a real show, great family, real problems and loads of talent. I'm from NY and I now live in Los Angeles. Watching the show brought up memories of the spirit and creativity of NY which is so different from any other place on the planet. The characters-I love Bob's wardrobe. Courtney quirkiness. The kids, the basketball episode was my favorite! Bravo has to bring you back! Your show was the best thing about Bravo since Project Runway and (original) Top Chef. Love your design! Rock On!
