Overview

Nate Berkus, regular contributor on The Oprah Winfrey Show, contributing editor of O, The Oprah Magazine, and nationally renowned decorator, has created a book inspired by his belief that everyone should love the way they live.

This step-by-step guide to achieving your own beautiful rooms is based on Nate's signature style and innovative approach to design. As a small boy, Nate could often be found rearranging his room (as well as helping his mother and the other neighborhood mothers rearrange theirs). Throughout the years his passion continued to grow, and soon Nate was heading his own award-winning firm with an elite roster of clients.

But it was Oprah Winfrey who gave Nate the chance of a lifetime—the opportunity to go into millions of homes around the world and join her mission to help people live their best lives. "It has been a dream come true that has absolutely changed my life," explains Berkus. "Not only has working with Oprah helped me redefine my own vision and purpose—but she continues to challenge me to use my own life to help others live better. And there is nothing that makes me happier or more grateful than to be a part of that." As Oprah always says, "Your home should be a reflection of who you truly are." Nate says, no matter how much money you have, he believes that is so very true. "I am honored to share my love of design to help everyone make that dream real for themselves with this book."

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Oprah's "Makeover Man" has finally written a book. Nate Berkus, a regular contributor to Winfrey's show, concurs with her philosophy that "your home should be a reflection on who you truly are." In that spirit, he has designed Home Rules to fit your needs, whether you want to redo the whole house, wake up a tired room, or just add a few room-enhancing accessories. Each chapter starts with ten questions to help pinpoint style, desires, and needs. Then Berkus imparts his signature style with specific design suggestions, tips, lists, before-and-after photographs, graphics, and sidebars.

Meet the Author

Nate Berkus

Nate Berkus began his career in design at a young age. With his allowance (dedicated to buying things for his bedroom) and his mother's influence (she's also a decorator), Nate began a lifelong passion for design. After graduating from Lake Forest College, he took a job with Leslie Hindman Auctioneers. It was from this position, as well as an internship with Dominique Aurientis in Paris, France, that he really developed a love for and good knowledge of the decorative arts and furniture. Nate then went on to form Nate Berkus Associates in 1995 at the age of twenty-four. The firm grew to include projects for Wolfgang Puck's Spago, Barney's New York, W hotels, as well as a prestigious list of private homes and clients. In 2001, Nate was invited to make over a small space for The Oprah Winfrey Show. From there, Nate became a featured design expert for the show and continued on to become a regular contributor to O at Home magazine.

    Nate is amazing at combining textures & colors.

    I am in the process of redecorating my master bedroom. I hit a wall when it came to the best colors. As soon as I opened Nate's book 'Home Rules' I discovered the perfect color combination for my room. More importantly, I can now see how important it is to combine different textures in my bedroom to make it a peaceful retreat. Thanks for sharing your talents.

    Nate Rules!

    You CAN judge a book by it's cover--the yummy author is a delightful, friendly, inviting, inspiration to those who have seen him on the Oprah show. The book is informative with lots of clear pictures of distance and close up shots with hand-drawn text suggesting improvements to items in the room. The font seems larger than the standard 12 and the spacing makes the page easy to read. There are lots of suggestions for different scenarios e.g., small spaces, use of color, an inspiration section, and tips on organization--to name a few. If you put it on your coffee table, people will know what you did to your space, so I scored that lower, but in reality it is a book that your friends will want too. I highly recommend it!

    ran right out to pick up a copy...

    I was so excited to learn about the release of this book I ran right out and bought a copy the first day it hit the shelves. I have been a fan of Nate since his first appearance on Oprah and my fondness for him grew after learning of his heartbreaking loss. Nate is a hero I'm proud to hold in high esteme!

    Interesting concept, but failed effort

    I had a lot of high hopes for this book. Nate has an interesting style and I was hoping there would be lots of simple ideas in this book. If you like looking at Nate, there are plenty of pictures of him. But my problem with this book is two fold. First, there are lots of basic, 101 ideas in here about decorating that anyone with a basic sense of style would understand. Second, there are lots of recycled photos from O at Home magazine for an original book, that's not cool. I don't hate this book, but I just didn't learn anything from it.
