New Favorite Show: 9 By Design



I have a new favorite show . . . 9 By Design on Bravo, have you seen it? I love it. It has design and a real family and I think it will be exciting to watch. From the looks of this season, it looks like they take A LOT on! It is amazing to me how they create these amazing homes, while also juggling their family! Definitely inspiring!! I don't even have kids yet and sometimes feel like I don't have enough time to do even the smallest things to my house - so I'm hoping this will inspire and motivate me to get things done in my own home.

From what I can tell, they purchase a building/home and completely re-do EVERYTHING, live there for a while, then sell it and move on to a new project. I can't imagine doing all that with that many kids and moving over and over, but they do it!!

Here are some of their amazing designs:

{This is the bedroom for their twin daughters, isn't is amazing??}

{All young boys want to play basketball, but living in an apartment in NYC can make that a bit difficult. Not for this family - they got their boys a basket ball goal, and covered the area so the ball would not get tossed off the building . . SO clever!!}

{Anyone who knows me , knows that I love b&w! So naturally I love this space!}

Beautiful blog and good music.
As you appreciate black and white, enter my giveaway of an illustration that first appeared in Mirabella Magazine.
BTW "More tears are shed over answered prayers than unanswered ones" but I am glad it worked out for you.

I always love their designs, and I've been dying to watch the show (which I haven't yet done!) And I agree- I can't imagine doing what they do with 7 kids in tow!
