Ditto-Worthy Designer :: Nate Berkus

First of all, thank you so much for all of your sweet comments on Instagram, Facebook, and on my love-letter post on the special occasion of Georgia Luisa’s first birthday. We have had such a wonderful weekend, soaking in our baby girl, and just celebrating! Your sweet words about my baby darlin’ made it all the sweeter!

Today’s Ditto-worthy designer is Nate Berkus. Um….. heck yes.

Honestly? What has taken me so long to post about Nate? I love Nate’s style. Have for SO long. Mr. Nate is one of my top three favorite design inspirations {my other two? Tyler Dawson and Katie Ridder}, and I am thrilled to tell you why.

But first… one more teensy thing. In two weeks, I am hopefully going to have the opportunity to tell Mr. Berkus how amazeballs he is. Ya know. FACE TO FACE!!! {I am totally calm. totally calm…} THE. NATE. BERKUS. is the Panel Host at this year’s Stylemaker’s event with Better Homes and Gardens in NYC. And lil’ ol’ me is going to be there…. tripping him “accidentally” in the hallway…. meeting him and thanking him for his amazing and inspiring design aesthetic.

{P.S. Why ditto?? As you pour over the following rooms, keep in mind the following design concepts that I believe make his spaces SOOOOO ditto-worthy! And don’t forget to think about what YOU would ditto from these spaces!}

Nate Berkus‘s spaces are ditto-worthy because of:

  1. his ability to edit like a BOSS!
  2. his awesome and regular use of velvet.
  3. his gift at making his spaces breathable and fresh.
  4. his knack of making beautiful, masculine spaces that have just the right touch of feminine.
  5. Drapes!He hangs a mean and lovely drape in nearly every room. Man after my own heart.
  6. his ability to mix simplicity and posh.
  7. his love for gold, velvet, and architectural impact. Sound like anyone you know?
  8. his ability to create interest with form and texture {he does not use much pattern, with the exception of bold stripes or checkers here and there}.
  9. his skill for making the understated to ‘read’ as drama.
  10. his use of wood in design. Can’t think of anyone who can touch Nate’s skill at incorporating wood variety and wood paneling into a space without making it heavy at all.

Not only is he a genius with space and design, Nate also wrote an inspiring book, that sits on the top of my coffee table, reminding me to decorate with what I truly love. I definitely recommend it.

  • I just LOVE his style and the first room is a favorite. He has the unique ability to add just the right amount of texture, style, and color to each room. Happy Monday and adored reading about our precious Georgia’s first birthday!

  • My favorite room of Nate’s isn’t shown here but I believe it’s his NYC apartment’s living room. His use of black trim on the windows is like an art form. The thing I believe that makes him most ditto-worthy is his use of meaningful objects. As you said, he edits, and what’s left has beauty and meaning. Be sure to ‘trip’ (um, I mean, greet) him for me, too!

  • Inspired by these photos, I spent some time “editing” today. Why I was hanging onto a cheap flea market vase I got for $2 and it had absolutely no soul, I have no idea, except I did like the shade of blue. So maybe it inspired me in its own way and now it’s time to let go and maybe someone else will pick it up and see possibility.
