This October marks the release of The Novogratz Collection: a line of beautiful new geometric fabrics, only available at The Shade Store. Robert and Cortney Novogratz, along with their seven children, bring energy to the design world with their youthful and eclectic style.
We spoke to The Novogratz about world travel, their charismatic kids, and how to nail the right vibe with your window treatments. Have a look at the interview below, and get your hands on some free swatches of the new collection by visiting The Shade Store’s Designer Fabric Collections Page.
How would you describe the collection?
Robert: We are known for fun colors and geometric designs so the collection has a lot of color. The Shade Store are the best at what they do, so they guided us in creating a collection that stayed true to The Novogratz brand while still delivering what their customers want and brings something new and different to the market.
What tips can you share about choosing the right pattern/material for a window treatment? Where and when does pattern work best?
Robert: Patterns work best in white areas because the window treatments bring color to the space. If you’re going to go with a patterned window treatment, let that be the art.
Cortney: Window treatments should contain a different vibe based on the room they’re within- sexy if they’re in a master bedroom, or sweet and soft if they’re in a nursery.
What was the inspiration behind the patterns in this collection?
Cortney: We’re inspired by travel and our kids. Travel allows us to see new cultures and broadens our idea of what’s beautiful, and our kids push us to not be afraid. This collection was really all about a fun, colorful aesthetic that will bring life into homes across the country.
