The Things That Matter by Nate Berkus
Does your home tell the story of who you are? Berkus invites readers on a photo-tour of his own home and the homes of 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. These tours show the personal side of interior design; with stories and beautiful photos, Berkus shares events from his life, including the tragic loss of his partner in the 2004 tsunami, that have shaped his approach to design. He show us 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.
