Our guest blogger Nate Berkus has a lot going on these days. Between his new book, All Things That Matter, and his latest collection for Target, we’re not sure where he found time to remodel his New York City duplex, which is featured in Architectural Digest’s November issue. But in true Nate fashion he managed to pull it off swimmingly, making his home a fabulous house tour we had to share.
When Berkus moved into his apartment it had some elements he loved, like the three bedrooms and terrace, but one major thing he didn’t: stark whitewashed brick -- everywhere.
But within three months he completely revamped the home. The old stone tile floors were replaced with white-oak planks, partitions were added and the gym was converted into a dressing room.
Berkus decided to decorate the space by adding warmth to the whitewashed brick with sentimental pieces he had collected over time. In the family room he placed French iron shelving units and a Madeline Weinrib rug. In the kitchen, which we’re particularly fond of, he painted the original cabinets black and added a classic New York City subway tile backsplash.
Looking at his home, it’s easy to see why everything Nate touches turns into design gold. Click through our slideshow to see some photos of Nate’s house and be sure to pick up the November issue of Architectural Digest on stands now.
