Does your home tell the story of who you are?
In The Things That Matter, Nate Berkus shares intimate stories from his life, introduces us to people who influenced him and helped him forge his sense of style, and opens up about the remarkable experiences that have left him forever changed, all of which find expression in how he lives today. From his most cherished flea market finds, to his beloved books and photos, to the many extraordinary mementos he’s collected in his travels, every piece defines who he’s become and what endures in his world.
Berkus invites readers into his own home as well as into twelve others, including a sleek steel-and-glass high-rise that soars above Chicago, a rustic cottage in the Hudson Valley, an ultra-chic atelier that maximizes every inch of space, a Greenwich Village townhouse that holds multiple art collections, and a study in meaningful minimalism in Marfa, Texas. The distinctive interiors beautifully displayed in this book offer revealing portraits of their owners’ lives and the inspiring choices that have made them who they are today.
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.

This book is a very easy read, full of great ideas. It made me feel more secure in my decorating choices for my home.
Designing for yourself isn't selfish. Living with "the things that matter" help us define ourselves. That doesn't mean buying things just because you can. It means surrounding yourself with things that make you happy, that help you define your style. And Berkus does that and more in his second book. Bravo Nate! Looking forward to much more in your future
This is the first decorating book I read cover to cover. Normally I just flip through and admire the pictures but this book was interesting and really gave me confidence to display items that are important to me rather than what the the magazines suggest is the sytle of the day.
