FLOR on Home By Novogratz

It isn’t every day that we get to see ourselves through the eyes of others.  In this case, those eyes belonged to the inspiring design-duo of  Bob and Cortney Novogratz, stars of the new show “Home by Novogratz” on HGTV.

We’ve long been fans of the Novogratz team here at FLOR and were blown away with a recent redesign project where they used some of our boldest colors and stripe patterns to completely transform a family beach-front condo.

We love how they used Side by Side here to complement the black-and-white wallpaper design and coordinate with the pops of color in this eclectic mix of styles.  We think it works beautifully and provides a stunning contrast.  (And, we love the briefcase/attache turned magazine stand – brilliant).

For the kids’ room, the Novogratz chose Ups and Downs to continue the stripe theme used in the bed frames and coordinate with the brightness of the wall color.

You couldn’t help but wake up refreshed and energized in the master bedroom.  We love the commitment to one of this season’s hottest colors: yellow.  Rake Me Over in yellow does the trick and provides a soft, lemony look for the floors.  The complementary earthy-brown tones really work to make this an inviting room. They then took a similar theme into the next room and used Rake Me Over again to create a shocking display of pink personality.

We were really inspired by Bob and Cortney’s fresh approach to color and pattern here.   There is no fear in their design palette and we feel that they’ve capture the essence of eclectic design beautifully.  What do you think?

See all the FLOR styles featured on “Home by Novogratz” here.  And, tune in to HGTV Saturdays, 10pm, to see more of this creative team’s perspective on design.

    Loved that show, and some of the others where HTV designrs have used Flor. I rcognized the product, but not once did any of the designers call the product anything but “carpet squares”. If you want the push, you have o get them to name your product. And they are promoting the convience of replacing only damaged squares as a good reason for using Flor, but not by name.

    Love FLOR….but these rooms just don’t do the product justice. In fact it really hurts it! :-(
