"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."

on Jun 2, 2010

It was terribly exciting creating our first hotel in Long Branch, New Jersey. It’s the first boutique hotel on the Jersey shore, and we wanted to make it memorable with our signature Sixx Design look. We mixed modern elements with vintage ones throughout, which we always do. We were luckily able to work with some major talent, like artisan John Houshmand, who created the bar and the wood pieces in the lobby. Ann Carrington’s art work was also another unique aspect to the hotel’s design. These talented designers helped take our design to a whole new level. 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. Everybody loves Bungalow, it sold out for the summer immediately after opening, and we love the way it looks and had a great time when we stayed there with the kids. To make sure everything was perfect!

Again, thanks for your love, support and following the show every week. It’s been a wild ride, and we couldn’t have done it without you! We hope to see you very soon!!!!
