In 2002 Nate was invited to make over a small space for “The Oprah Winfrey Show," after which he became a featured design expert for the show and continued to garner national press in publications such as Elle Decor, US Weekly, People, O Magazine, Lucky, InStyle and House Beautiful. Following the debut of his signature line of home products, Nate’s first book, Home Rules: Transform the Place You Live into a Place You’ll Love (Hyperion) was released in 2005 and went on to become a New York Times Bestseller. This fall, Nate will publish his second book, The Things That Matter (Spiegel & Grau).
“The Nate Berkus Show,” a daily syndicated first run talk show hosted by Nate, launched in September 2010 and returned for a second season in the fall of 2011 (co-produced by HARPO Productions and Sony Pictures Television [SPT] & distributed by SPT). Most recently, Nate enjoyed a new role as executive producer on the Disney and DreamWorks film, The Help.
Beginning October 2012, Nate will debut The Nate Berkus Collection at Target, a line of home goods and accessories sold exclusively at Target and Target.com. His branded assortment of home products will continue to be sold through HSN.
Beyond his television and production work, Nate's Chicago-based design firm, which he founded
in 1995, continues to design interiors across the country and around the world.
