Happy Nate Berkus Day!

The fabulous Moggit Girls have organized an official “Nate Berkus Day” after creating an incredible buzz about Nate’s new show on Twitter. It really is a remarkable example of the power of social media. The Moggit Girls tweeted so much the day that it was announced that The Nate Berkus Show was slated to begin on September 13th, that the producers took notice and even agreed with their brilliant idea of filling Nate’s audience with design bloggers!

Last week, they spread the news about today’s “Nate Berkus Day” and I of course, jumped at the chance to participate. After all, Nate is hands-down, one of my favorite interior designers. I adore his polished style and the fact that he emphasizes the importance of making a space feel personal. Every room in a home should say something about the people who live there. I usually love the color palettes that Nate employs and love that every space he designs features a touch of glamour. And by the way, could he be any cuter? Let the record show that I love just about every space ever designed by Nate, but I have narrowed it down to my four favorites for this post.


This was one of the first spaces designed by Nate that I truly fell in love with. I love the classic, Hamptons vibe as well as the traditional and classic elements throughout the room. The whitewashed walls, rustic touches such as this great table, and sea grass carpeting give the room such a relaxed and inviting vibe. All of the lighting is fabulous!

I love that the elements in this corner of the room offer a juxtaposition of sorts. The seating, lamp, table, and columns are a bit more traditional and formal than the pieces in the rest of the room, but it all works together beautifully.

I know you’ve seen Katie Lee Joel’s gorgeous townhouse on La Dolce Vita before, but  I can’t promise to stop featuring it anytime soon. It is one of my all-time favorite homes and of course, it was designed by Nate! The kitchen, dining room, and living room are all part of one large, open space. I absolutely love this dining room. I think the shelving filled with books and tchotchkes is phenomenal and keeps the room from feeling too formal. The fireplace is a wonderful feature, as well. The gorgeous table and chairs are French reproductions. The upholstery on the chairs is the perfect chocolate shade while the color palette in the home is pretty much perfection.

This home set the blogosphere ablaze after it was published in ELLE DECOR and quickly became a favorite of countless design-lovers. Rakieten’s library, pictured above, is my favorite in the home. I love the dark walls painted in Farrow & Ball’s Off Black and the colorful accents like the Madeline Weinrib ikat pillow. The collection of artwork is fabulous!}

I love the eclectic mix of accessories, pops of color, and the fact that he threw in a little sparkle for good measure.}

{Nate has something that most other designers do not, even the ones that every design-minded person knows. He is a household name. Even those who do not have a vested in design are familiar with Nate and his work. I love that he has brought an awareness of design to the masses. I am incredibly excited for The Nate Berkus Show to begin on September 13th and look forward to finding new inspiration through his amazing work.}
