A vibrant addition to the 'seaside living' book tradition, Beachside Bohemian injects life into this perennial category through its celebrated authors, design duo Robert and Cortney Novogratz. Known for combining bohemian chic style and family living, the couple serve up fun and practical design and lifestyle tips through their vacation house on the Brazilian coast.
Ten years ago, the Novogratzes bought a modest house in disrepair in Trancoso, Brazil, long before the rest of the world had discovered the peaceful beach outpost. This gorgeous book chronicles the transformation of the unremarkable cottage into a beloved family retreat in the glorious tropical environment of coastal Brazil that perfectly fits their lifestyle, where outside living is as important as interior.
About the Authors
Robert and Cortney Novogratz met at a party twenty years ago and have been together ever since. Native Southerners, and both from large families, they moved to New York to pursue a job on Wall Street (Bob) and acting (Cortney). After realizing they had a knack for renovating derelict properties into coveted, gorgeously designed homes, they put their talents to use full time and founded The Novo- gratz, their design firm. They divide their time between New York and Los Angeles, where they recently just bought a house.
