ABOUT THIS AUTHOR
Robert and Cortney Novogratz met at a party twenty years ago and have been together ever since. Native Southerners, and both from large families, they moved to New York to pursue a job on Wall Street (Bob) and acting (Cortney). After realizing they had a knack for renovating derelict properties into coveted, gorgeously designed homes, they put their talents to use full time and founded The Novogratz, their design firm. They divide their time between New York and Los Angeles, where they recently just bought a house.
