Thinking About Nate Berkus

23 Jan

I always had a thing for Nate Berkus and not because of his tousled hair, sparkly eyes and warm inviting smile that makes you hang on to his every word.  It his body of work, his design portfolio that knocks me out!  A design crush if you will.   Recently, I learned that his talk show was canceled. Was I sad… ummmm no. That mess was all over the place from wardrobe makeovers to room in a minute challenges, it felt really forced to me and even Nate seemed uncomfortable.  On Oprah he was completely at ease, when he was speaking about interiors and helping clients.  Anyway, the show is over now and he can return to designing spaces like this.

Yes! Love this space so much. So relaxed and comfortable but refined at the same time. A rust velvet chaise across from a jade green sofa, who does that!  It works.  There are so many details and pieces in this space that are amazing alone but they fit so well together.  They don’t fight each other for dominance.  Hello  flokati rug hanging out in the corner and shiny gold side table beside the chaise.  Lets not forget the rustic beams and the disco ball light fixture.  All of this feels timeless to me.  I think it is the combination of different elements that gives the room that quality.  Check out Nate Berkus Associates to see more eye candy.

This is from the same home as above.  Again, a great mix of classic and modern.  On first glance this room is very masculine with the tufted leather chairs, heavy metal table and dark moody walls.  But then he throws in a  super glam  light fixture to mix it up.  Many of his spaces have that look and feel.

 Those windows get me every time.  This is the home of Katie Lee Joel apparently it is now on the market for sale.  One of my favorite blogs Knight Moves has some more information on the listing. Liking that he put french bistro stools in a modern white kitchen.

Not a lot of unnecessary stuff and clutter just clean and crisp. He lets the room breath and the space speak for itself.  It feels refreshing.

His own home in Chicago.  Serene and relaxed even with that crazy striped rug.  Manly but those delicate chairs throw in a little bit of spark.  Gold with lime green fabric, oh yes he did!

  Go now to Nate Berkus Associates to get a better look at his portfolio!  The site won’t let you save or pin any photos so hopefully all above pictures are credited properly. Hope you enjoyed and I hope Nate starts designing again and gives us more his sexy rustic serene glam room goodness!
