We Couldn't Be Happier--Home Decor Duo Cortney & Bob Novogratz Are Back!

If you loved Bravo’s 9 By Design, good news–Cortney and Bob Novogratz are back! Well, sort of. The design duo recently teamed up with Walmart on an affordable new home decor line and we’re seriously in love. Not only does the collection include bedding and bath items, but there’s furniture, too! How amazing is this chevron chair for less than $200?!

We’re so happy the Novogratzs are back on the scene, we stole a few minutes with them to catch up. Here’s what they had to say:

SHEfinds: How did you guys hook up with Walmart?

As a go-to destination for affordable style, Walmart delivers high-quality products for low prices. We felt Walmart gave us an amazing opportunity to touch so many lives with its enormous reach.

SF: What do you hope your Walmart collection brings to the market?

Our dream is to bring hip design to everyone, no matter what their budget is. We hope this collection is our launch pad to do so. It is designed to help bring color and excitement into people’s lives, all at affordable prices. We particularly love that customers will be able to mix, match and update their existing pieces with stylish accents.

SF: Do you guys have a favorite piece from the collection?

We love the Dream bedding. It says it all, looks great and definitely makes a fun statement with its vivid colors and bright design. All the fabrics we’ve used are high-quality, durable and feel great.

SF: You guys are redoing college campuses this fall–what’s the most memorable piece of furniture or decor item from your college years?

We were both really into wall art-rock posters, movie posters, (Robert had a Farah Fawcett poster!).

SF: What items should post-grads splurge on for their first apartment? Which items can they go a little cheap with?

Although they can be a bit pricey, a great couch is always a must. Futons are a great alternative, though. We actually have a pretty cool one in our collection. (Check out the 9 by Novogratz Vintage Linen Mix Futon.)

Bedding is always best to buy in your budget, as you’ll likely replace it every few years.

SF: What are your top 3 decorating tips when you’re working with a tight budget?

1. Punch it up with paint. A fresh paint job is one of the easiest ways to create a design focal point, which can transform the look of a room in just one day.

2. Clear the clutter. In small spaces especially, less is better.

3. Focus on one accent piece. Whether it’s a colorful chair or curtains, choose one accent piece that personalizes a room and makes it special

SF: What are your top 3 decorating tips when you decorating a small space like a studio apartment?

1. Make a statement with your bedding. People often shy away from patterns in small spaces. However, certain patterns like stripes for example, are perfect for petite rooms because they create an illusion of height or length.

2. Reflect on a bigger space. Mirrors and unique wall décor are a great way to attract attention and maximize space. One of the easiest ways to do this is to hang a mirror horizontally on your longest wall, whether it’s above a dresser, dining table or couch.

3. Use your space wisely. Everyday items can serve a dual purpose in style and efficiency. For example, if you don’t have a large linen closet to hide your bath towels, don’t worry. Buy a few over-the-door or removable wall hooks and display your brightest towels.

SF: What’s your favorite room in your house?

The kitchen, as we do everything in it from eating to entertaining as well as utilizing it as a work place.
