Husband and wife design duo Robert and Cortney Novogratz share their trade secrets and personal stories from over twenty-five years of buying, selling, and fixing up homes.

Robert and Cortney Novogratz, stars of HGTV’s Home by Novogratz and Bravo’s 9 by Design, have transformed fabulous properties across the U.S. and around the world, including Hotel Dylan (Woodstock, NY), the Bungalow Hotel (Long Branch, NJ), and Timber Cove (Sonoma, CA), to name a few. They've also partnered with many celebrities and top retailers and had their work profiled in major national media outlets, from The New York Times to Architectural Digest, all while raising their family of seven children. They not only know how to run a successful and innovative design business but also how to balance work, family, and fun.

The Novogratz Chronicles is their most intimate and personal book to date, taking readers on their journey from their first house renovation project in Chelsea in the 1990s to their latest home in Greenwich Village and projects in Los Angeles, Brazil, and the Berkshires. Eleven chapters explore and share their path to success, from thinking outside the box when financing, to building the right renovation team, to developing a design aesthetic and trusting your design instincts, interspersed with personal anecdotes and stories from their hands-on experiences.

DIYers, HGTV fans, weekend warriors, and anyone interested in buying, selling, and renovating houses and spaces will love reading The Novogratz Chronicles and discovering the expertise that lies beyond their renowned how-to decorating prowess to inform and inspire their own renovation dreams and endeavors.
