You will enrich your life immeasurably if you approach it with a sense of wonder and discovery, and always challenge yourself to try new things. .

Nate Berkus Quotes about life
#74948 Nate Berkus

I was a boy with one dream and one dream only: I wanted - no, strike that, I was desperate for - a room of my own. You see, in those days I shared a room with my little brother, Jesse, and it wasn't pretty. He was the Oscar to my Felix: messy, careless, and just a little bit sticky - exactly the way a kindergartner is supposed to be. .

In a minimal interior, what you don't do is as important as what you do. .

Nate Berkus Quotes about you
#74950 Nate Berkus

We hold back our true feelings and beliefs, whether it's from a sense of being polite or fear of hurting someone's feelings. But what I have seen on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' is that no one benefits from holding back and keeping things bottled up inside. So I pride myself on speaking my mind and not being afraid to give honest feedback. .

#74951 Nate Berkus

I like my house to be unique to me. Sure, I've bought plenty of things out of a catalog, but the way I put them together in my home is special. You might have bought your sofa at a major home decorating store, but the rug you found at the flea market is so unique, it takes your room from 'carbon copy' to 'simply yours' in no time. .

#74952 Nate Berkus

I do shop online! But I'm shopping online mostly in the home categories - One Kings Lane and Gilt. At a lot of architectural websites, I buy a lot of hardware for cabinetry like hinges and things like that from England. So, you know, for me, I shop at Net-A-Porter, but I don't really shop that much for clothing online. .

#74953 Nate Berkus

I didn't grow up thinking I'd be a decorator. Design is my greatest passion, and it naturally just pulled me down the path. Same with TV. Being famous or having a show was never the motivation. I got a call and was swept up by the challenge of that first small space redesign. .

Nate Berkus Quotes about motivation
#74954 Nate Berkus

They used to tease me at the 'Oprah' show, 'Are you really going to do another white Shaker kitchen, with white subway tile and stainless steel appliances?' And my answer is, 'I can vary it a bit, but I'm never going to err from classic materials.' .

Nate Berkus Quotes about you
#74955 Nate Berkus

Everywhere in my house are these little things that have meanings and make me think of great memories. .

Nate Berkus Quotes about memories
#74956 Nate Berkus

I see it every day: People trying to create a home that somebody else tells them they should have. I don't care if it's a magazine or a bossy friend - when somebody says, 'This is what's elegant, this is what's trendy,' if it doesn't represent you, you're not going to be happy. .

Nate Berkus Quotes about happy
#74957 Nate Berkus

Go outside! I mean, even leaves from a park are beautiful in a clear glass vase. I'd rather see that than fake anything any day. .

I was barely in grade school when I helped my mother rearrange the living room furniture for the first time. .

Nate Berkus Quotes about time
#74959 Nate Berkus

I knew that I was a gay boy fairly early; what was interesting to me was that my mother didn't know. She made me play baseball - I had no desire to do that. I said, 'Mom, I don't like direct sunlight, I don't like bugs, I don't like grass, and I'd rather be in the house playing with your fabric samples.' .

#74960 Nate Berkus

I made my parents crazy. As a kid, I redecorated my bedroom every month. I would literally save my allowance and go buy things. .

#74961 Nate Berkus

You can change the feel of your sofa by adding a thick, cozy throw and playing a couple of classic pillows off a more Moroccan-inspired one. .

Nate Berkus Quotes about change
#74962 Nate Berkus

'Priced to sell' - just the phrase makes me smile. When a dealer says all the items in his booth are priced to sell, he means he's tagged them as aggressively as he can to get you to buy them. Don't worry, though, I still haggle. You have to. That's the point of a flea market. .

Mixing in some rusty oranges is a warm way to update your place for fall. .

Nate Berkus Quotes about money
#74965 Nate Berkus

About 90 percent of the pieces in my home are vintage, and I'm a ruthless editor. I only live with things that I love. There is not one thing in my home that doesn't have meaning to me. .

Nate Berkus Quotes about love
#74966 Nate Berkus

I didn't necessarily want to be famous growing up, but I knew I would be a good famous person because I'm not offended if somebody comes up to me and knows things about me and wants to engage me in a conversation. .

Nate Berkus Quotes about good
#74967 Nate Berkus

We're not handling things anymore before they arrive on our doorstep. I like to feel how thin porcelain can be, run my hand over a textile, see if I want to sit in a chair. .

Nate Berkus Quotes about want
#74968 Nate Berkus

I got my first Charvet knit tie when I was 15. I actually stole it from my father. I love them because you can wear them day to night. They're French and preppy and have been around since the 1800s. .

Nate Berkus Quotes about love
#74969 Nate Berkus

I have a large watch collection, and classic watches are especially important to me. I had a silver Rolex, and I actually gave it to my little brother. He wears it every day. He's an actor, so whenever he goes to an audition, he can look down, see it, and it gives him confidence. It was a great thing to pass on. .

Nate Berkus Quotes about confidence
#74970 Nate Berkus

I think that a lot of guys reach for electronics first, but the truth is that you can never keep up with electronics. You buy a flat-screen TV, and then six months later, there's one that has 3D and Blu-ray and all this business, and that is just going to keep continuing. .

Nate Berkus Quotes about truth
#74971 Nate Berkus

Twitter is a place where you share your thoughts, yourself... you don't want a plain white backdrop for that. You want the entire page to say something about who you are. Designer or not, if the urge strikes you, go for it. Put up that watercolor you've never shown anyone. Take a photo of that hat you just knitted... whatever it is, share it. .
