Nate Berkus on Oprah: Decorating Miracle Worker

I saw a repeat of an episode with designer Nate Berkus on Oprah today, and he is a decorating genius! I think that it is so much harder to shop for home decor because unlike clothes, jewerly, and makeup, you can't try it on at the store. Something that looks great in the store showroom could clash with things in your home or the wall color. Especially if you are trying to match something already in your home and the thing at home is a few shades off of what you remembered it to be. Or something you think is perfect in the store could be just too big or too small for your place.

However, the doesn't stop making shopping for home decor fun! Check out Nate Berkus's website for examples from his portfolio.

On Oprah's website, this quote is posted:

If you do everything that's in the same style, you have an interior that's really flat and uninteresting. The trick is to make sure you're looking at each piece for its own value.
— Nate Berkus

I think that's actually very, very true. Do you think you can say the same about clothes / your wadrobe?
