I love beautiful things, but even more than that, I like things that remind me of where I've been. Who I've loved. Who I love. And where I want to go." What made Nate Berkus one of Oprah's all-stars was the compassion and insight he brought to the subject of design.
Along with a superb sense of taste and a discerning eye came an intuitive, heartfelt understanding of how our interior lives, our emotional make-up, can and should be reflected in the places we live.
Here, Berkus invites us into his favorite homes-ones that belong to friends, tastemakers, celebrities, and regular folk with a knack for creating spaces that are at once stunning and showcase who they really are.
