i have blogged about my little design crush on nate berkus here and here.to say i like his design aesthetic would be an understatement. using antiques, texture, neutral colors, sculptural elements, and natural artifacts. he gets it right every time. when i found out he is collaborating with target for a collection i nearly spit my cereal out on the screen i was so happy. i have october 21st in my planner and i am setting the alarm, taking my coffee to go and busting a move to a target store. i can't wait. that lacquered tortoise shell is divine and all the gold accessories are making me very giddy.
also if that wasn't enough. nate berkus also has a new book coming out on october 16th titled 'the things that matter most'. you can preorder it here at target. or here at amazon. here is the excerpt describing the book:
"The Things That Matter convincingly lays out Nate
Berkus's philosophy that things do matter. Our homes
tell our stories, they reflect the places we’ve been
and the people we've loved along the way—and there can
be no more beautiful design for living than that."
it's fall. my favorite season. the humidity is long gone. i don't have to shave my legs everyday. the slow cooker is in full gear. baking is now a sport at our house. and it's nate berkus month. what more could a mom ask for?
