I realize that this show has taken design geeks by storm and I’m probably a bit late to the trend but I watched the first episode and am so intrigued. My brother Solomon had forwarded an article on the Novogratz family to me about a year ago and I thought the story of a family with seven children living in NYC was fascinating. Being from a large family myself I know very well the energy, chaos, and loudness associated with living in close quarters with multiple people of various ages. I love big families. I think that Courtney (the mom) is amazing – to be able to hold together a family business, refurbish houses while living in them, orchestrate far too many moves, all while mothering a rapidly growing family! And I love her taste – her aesthetic is impeccable. I am curious, is anyone else watching the show? What do you think? Is this family just crazy or inspiring?
