Nate Berkus’ Home Decorating Advice

Lisa Kogan: I’ve got a friend who’s in my home on a regular basis, and she keeps giving me things that are—how to put this delicately…seven kinds of ugly. I know people have to come first, and the last thing I want to do is hurt her feelings, but….

Nate Berkus: Is there a shelf you can use for those things? I mean, people are more important than things, but things are important. I think it matters what our eyes land on; I think it matters what our butts sit on. It’s important how we feel in our homes, because feeling good makes us more gracious. And that makes it easier to welcome others not only into our homes but into our lives.

Lisa Kogan: So what are the things that matter most to you?

Nate Berkus: To me it’s about the books that are out of print, and the

    Family Room Inspiration Ideas

     

    When we moved into our new house this past summer I was so excited to have more space and new rooms to decorate.  But when it comes to a full room make over and decorating I could use a little help.  There are some wickedly talented home bloggers who can do this stuff in their sleep.  

    So my first thought was to ask my friend, DIYer and designer Jessica of Four Generations One Roof if she could help guide me a little with our family room makeover.  If you don’t know Jess, she’s such a hoot, and lives, and you might guess, in a multigenerational home.  The family, ranging in ages from 5 to 85, not only live together but love to  DIY together. Jess shares family stories, Do-It-Yourself projects, room makeovers, project/craft tutorials and a little bit of the chaos of what it’s like having four generations all

    Bedroom Deco and Design Ideas

    The bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the house.  It’s the room we spend the most time in.

    It’s where we recharge, reconnect with our partners, reflect and recuperate.

    We owe it to ourselves to create intimate sanctuaries that resonate with who we are, but also embody the tranquility we’re searching for.

    If you’re looking to create a peaceful bedroom, the Japanese platform bed is the perfect piece of furniture that will set this tone.

    The Japanese platform bed’s clean lines lend it a look of beauty and simplicity.

    It differs from other platform beds in that the Japanese platform bed does not require the use of a box spring mattress and typically does not use head or foot-boards. 

    They sit close to the ground on four posts, an unpretentious design that evokes an old world Asian aesthetic.

    The mattress simply sits atop surrounded by a stunning

    Game And Entertainment Rooms Featuring Witty Design Ideas

    The best way to find game room ideas is to take a cue from your favorite activities and the things you do for fun. Every home needs a space where family members and guests can gather to spend quality time together, maybe play a board game, pool or compete with each other in video games or Kinect Adventures. Sure, the living room is nice if you want to chill and relax but for the type of activities we have in mind you’d need a game room or an entertainment area.

    Multiple Functions In One Space.

    SHARYN BLOND

    Sharyn owns a wonderful little shop just outside of Kansas City that sells the most gorgeous, embroidered and appliquéd linens for the home. These linen cocktail napkins, guest and fingertip towels and bedlinens will make you swoon. Luckily for us, and for you, she lets us order them all through her to stock in our own store.



    From 1932 – 1978 the Marghab company, owned and operated by husband and wife team Emile Marghab and Vera Way, paid their talented embroiderers by the stitch to create carefully constructed works of art on linen. All the work was done in Madeira, Portugal and done to perfection so as to meet the stringent standards of Vera.


    Marghab linens were sold only in the finest department stores and 3 exclusive salons; George Jensen in New York, David Jones, Ltd. in Australia and Constance Leiter in Kansas City.
