I loved reading about how Robert and Cortney helped their friend, Dave Crisanti, decorate his small home in New York's East Village. Like any good designer/stylist, the Novogratz transform the space into a fabulous home by getting a feel for the home owner (easier this time as he's a friend), and accentuating his loves and interests. Also working with the architecture, enhancing the strengths and addressing the weaknesses.
|Robert commissioned the original piece above the desk with a Princeton theme, where Dave studied.|
|The large living room gets plenty of light, so Cortney & Robert |
decided it could handle a deep moody teal blue on the walls.
|Details capturing Dave's interests - the glass cabinet has become home to |
hundreds of concerts and sports games tickets that he's kept over the years.
|The home has a masculine feel and is filled with treasured momentos and nostalgia.|
|A second living room was turned into a dining room with a bar for entertaining.|
|A greyish duck egg blue compliments the mid century modern look in the dining room.|
|The small bedroom was painted mostly white to keep the room bright and open, |
but the end wall was made a focal point by painting it dark green.
|Dave's vintage Princeton letterman jacket was framed above his bed.|
