Nate Berkus is arguably America’s favorite interior designer and the NY Times Bestselling author of “Home Rules”.  Nate rose to fame on The Oprah Winfrey Show as a regular guest offering design advice to viewers.  He was so popular that soon he was given his own show, The Nate Berkus Show, an Emmy Award–winning, nationally syndicated daytime talk show. His work has appeared in Elle Decor, O: The Oprah Magazine, InStyle, The New York Times, Vanity Fair, and House Beautiful. Nate runs the Chicago based interior design firm Nate Berkus Associates, and just debuted his exclusive new line at Target, and his newest book (Which I LOVED!) called “The Things That Matter”.

Here is a great teaser of what to expect in Nate’s wonderful new book “The Things That Matter”:
 
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.

Here “The King Of Kamelot” sits down with the incredible Nate Berkus in NYC for EXTRA to talk about his newest book “The Things That Matter”, his rise to prominence as a TV Personality and Interior Designer, his new line “The Nate Berkus Collection” sold exclusively at Target, what it was like as Executive Producer of the Oscar Winning movie “The Help”, losing his partner Fernando in the Sri Lanka Tsunami, and soo much more!  We also opened the live chat on Spreecast up to the fans and they asked great questions about Nate’s career, his next steps, and even design tips.

Here are some of Nate’s recent National TV Appearances for “The Things That Matter” on The Rachel Ray Show, Nightline, and Good Morning America:
