"Home by Novogratz" premeired on HGTV Saturday night and I couldn't wait. I really liked their Bravo show and their style is mostly not something I would do, but I love it still. I feel like a lot of their ideas can be tempered for the every day household... but for some, their style is perfectly suited.
The kitchen makeover was great because they used (from what I could tell) Ikea cabinets, cheap modern door pulls and basic white subway tile backsplash, which made a great jump off for any design... and allowed the money for the too-cute pink stove and vintage-inspired fridge as the impact pieces.
I wish they would've quit saying "We re-did the whole staircase." No, you didn't. They talked about how it would eat up most of their $40,000 budget to "re-build" the staircase, but then all they said was that they installed new risers and made it "more structurally sound", whatever that means. They painted those amaz-a-zing stripes on the stairs which totally killed me. My husband would NOT like that in any home of ours but I'm dying to do it because I've seen painted stairs around the blogosphere for awhile now.
