Who else loves Nate Berkus? My seven year old once declared, “I think Mom has a crush on Nate Berkus,” to which my husband chuckled and rolled his eyes. He kind of knows it’s true.
So, I’m usually never home at 2 in the afternoon when the Nate Berkus show is on, so I’ve set my DVR to tape it everyday. I don’t always find time to watch every episode, but if I have a little time and somehow am able to gain control of one of the TVs in our house, I’ll fast forward to the segments I’m most interested in.
This past rainy Sunday was the perfect, lounge-in-your-sweats, watch-TV, and make comfort-food for dinner kind of day. While the males in my house were watching sports and Tom & Jerry, I actually was able to sneak upstairs and get caught up on some of last week’s Nate Show episodes.
My favorite was when he showed the before and after of his newly remodeled Greenwich Village apartment.
Let me just say, it is extremely swoon worthy! I was a complete dork and had to stop and rewind multiple times just to take it all in. It has such a warm and eclectic feel while still keeping a cool urban vibe.
I went on the Nate Show website to look for “after pictures” to post but they only have close-ups of some of the accessories around his home. I’m sure it will be featured in one of the design magazines sometime soon, but for now, if you want to see, you’ll have to watch the video itself …
One of the things Nate talks about is how it’s the small details and accessories that really make a house a home, and of course, he has quite a collection.
I particularly love how he uses gold throughout his house. It has all of the sparkle of silver but with even more warmth.
