Sixx design...... How do they do it?

Last night I watched 9 by Design and I think my mouth was open the entire time. I can't understand how Courtney Novogratz can be pregnant, renevate a massive townhouse and have 6 babies at home and most importantly be so damb cute and cool while doing it! She is my IDOL! I love how Courtney said that she prefers hanging with her kids - If I had 7 kids I would be running for the hills. Her kids are amazingly well behaved and of course all gorgeous! On top of all this the decor happens to be the most creative family friendly design I have ever laid eyes on. I am totally hooked! To check out the show click here. To check outCourtney and Robert Navogratz's genious portfolio click here. Robert and Cortney have a new book written with Elizabeth Novogratz titled ‘Downtown Chic’ published by Rizzoli $45.00)

White bedding Easy and Chic

For some reason whenever I buy anything other than plain white bedding I get sick of it too quickly. It works with everything no?
