They’re the family everyone loves to hate, the folks who are alternately the most sought-after designers or one of the signs of the Apocalypse, they’re the Novogratzes. I winced when I first saw the ads on Bravo for their show, “9 by Design,” but then I watched it and fell in love. Anyone know if they’re getting a second season?

I’m continually drawn back to a palette containing slate and red (see Roman & Williams, below — not to mention the palette of this very site!). This one throws in white, which is not something that appeals to me — it dilutes the richness and drama too much. When we upgrade our kitchen I’d love to do it in the slate/red family.
