Stalking Nate Berkus
I regularly stalk, I mean check out, Nate Berkus‘s website hoping for new photos of his work and this morning I was rewarded with not only photos but I little back story. Seems everyone is on a budget these days including his clients, one of whom asked Nate and his team to outfit “two properties with beautiful, timeless, and affordable finds.” He also thinks that although these type of projects are a challenge, they push him to be more creative and I agree. It’s easy to go out and decorate if you have an unlimited budget but it takes a little more work and thought to find things that look more expensive than they really are and it helps to start with “furniture with clean lines and classic fabrics.”
Nate says, “we found some great deals in our favorite catalogs and ordered up one-of-each from my line at hsn.com. A layer of paint added warmth. A few trips to our favorite antique stores and flea markets for objects and accessories added just the right personality to the each space. The end result was amazing!” And I have to agree! If that’s not enough Nate for you, you can watch him give a tour of his Chicago apartment at People.com. I just have to say that it’s a good thing that Nate lives in Chicago because I might really start stalking him! Just kidding…sort of!
