I heart Nate Berkus

What can I say about Nate? Only good things of course. He is funny, sweet, charming, warm, passionate, talented and of course I must mention that he is absolutely gorgeous!


He is one of my all-time favorite interior designers and we go way back!  Nate might not remember this, but I was at one his very first book signings for Home Rules in the front row!


Here I am with friends in the front row! Check out the lady to my right it’s Brooke from Fabulous Doodles.



Here’s Nate waiting to sign our books!


That book signing was way back in 2005! From his days on Oprah, to seeing his own designs hit my favorite shelter magazines to being able to purchase items designed by him for my home I’ve been along for the ride.


Nate’s latest venture is his own show that is set to launch on September 13th! Due to the savvy nature of a pair of bloggers know as the Moggit girls and the power of twitter there will now be an audience of design bloggers at one of the shows!


Now you might be wondering why a lot of your favorite design bloggers are discussing Nate today. Well Julieann of CreateGirl came up with the idea to make today Nate Day and get Nate excited for his blogger filled audience.


You can check out all of the bloggers takes on Nate here!


Ok now back to the matter at hand. My favorite Nate room! Of course I can’t just pick one so here are my favorites!


Who doesn’t love Nate’s Manhattan apt? Those white floors, those lacquered doors and tasteful accessories! Once Nate realizes we are meant to be BFF it’s nice to know he has a place to stay well visiting me. :)


This room totally speaks to me and I feel completely reflexes who he is. It’s simple yet  elegant with a touch of glam and world traveler thrown in for good measure.


I have no idea where this room is, but I love all the weathered pieces in the room. I’m dying to see pictures of the rest of this house.


So simply yet this set-up speaks volumes to me. Love the natural wood, the element of nature, amazing light fixture. 


Since I’m a huge color lover I must say this room is one of my all time favorites. Love all the tufting. Love the green sofa! Love those burlap like roman shades! Love the shelves to house all of your treasures from travels. Love, love, love!


This is another love, love, love room. Amazing flooring…check, amazing chairs…check, amazing tulip table….check, amazing lighting fixture…check. Truly a stunning room!


Oh Nate I feel like I’ve watched you grow since the very beginning. I wish you nothing, but success! Can’t wait to see the show and I hope to get be in the blogger audience!


What’s your favorite Nate room?

Amen! Nate is an inspiration! I just don't think I could choose just one favorite room. In almost every space he pulls together, I gush over his eclecticism and elegance.

Great pics -- a lot of these I haven't seen before (always fun!). I'd say my favorite project of his though is Katie Lee's home...or maybe his sister Marni's....or...

So hard to choose!
