Stylish School Makeover

Courney Novogratz and Bob Novogratz pose as Bounty reveals its "We Love Our School" $50,000 classroom makeover at Winegard Elementary School designed by Bob and Cortney Novogratz of HGTV's "Home by Novogratz"  in Orlando, Florida on March 24, 2011.

Cortney and Robert Novogratz


I just received these images of the Bounty sponsored "We Love Our School" classroom makeover designed by Cortney and Robert Novogratz and thought you might enjoy taking a peek. I was a fan of Bravo's 9 By Design, which chronicled this stylish husband/wife design team and their 7 kids as they flipped and transformed spaces in and around NYC with high art and a hefty dose of charisma. Bounty awarded the deserving Winegard Elementary School in Orlando, Florida $50,000 for the makeover. Check out the before and after shots.

a beautiful transformation! I was re-reading Cortney and Robert Novogratz`s book this weekend. I like it a lot. Every time when I see a comment of you I'm so glad, Mary Jo. Your blog was one of the 1st I was reading long ago before I started my own blog 4-5 months ago. Now still the same...one of the 1st blogs I click when I'm online. It's a delight to visit you...warm hugs
