Text Quotes
I am not ever in the business of making anyone feel bad  (Nate Berkus Quotes) People first. Dogs second. Things last.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) I always want objects in my home that have a connection to me or something I’ve loved. It’s still stuff, but it’s stuff that has meaning.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) You can’t be around Oprah and not have her influence you, and I don’t mean that because she’s doling out the free advice. I mean it because she is someone that leads with truth and follows her heart. She’s a force  (Nate Berkus Quotes) I have a large watch collection, and classic watches are especially important to me. I had a silver Rolex, and I actually gave it to my little brother. He wears it every day. He’s an actor, so whenever he goes to an audition, he can look down, see it, and it gives him confidence. It was a great thing to pass on.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) Before you begin designing or buying anything, you need to get real and ask yourself: What do you really want to use this room for? What do you want to do in this room but can’t now?  (Nate Berkus Quotes) I can change a light fixture, and I can do certain things. But I’m really bad in terms of construction. I can’t do any of it on my own.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) I knew that I was a gay boy fairly early; what was interesting to me was that my mother didn’t know. She made me play baseball - I had no desire to do that. I said, ‘Mom, I don’t like direct sunlight, I don’t like bugs, I don’t like grass, and I’d rather be in the house playing with your fabric samples.’  (Nate Berkus Quotes) I live in a beautiful vintage building that was built in the heart of downtown Chicago  (Nate Berkus Quotes) We hold back our true feelings and beliefs, whether it’s from a sense of being polite or fear of hurting someone’s feelings. But what I have seen on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ is that no one benefits from holding back and keeping things bottled up inside. So I pride myself on speaking my mind and not being afraid to give honest feedback.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) The truth of the matter is being gay is the way I was born. I believe this to the core of my being.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) When I see a wall that’s hung with different objects, framed or unframed, what I like about it is its fluidity and rule-breaking nature. Just experiment a bit.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) When you buy things that are expensive, like a sofa or something that really feels like an investment, you need to keep it as plain as possible, as simple as possible. Make sure that it’s a clean design that will work with whatever style you want it to.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) In a small space, you want to keep the bedding as simple as possible so it looks clean, calm and collected.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) Go outside! I mean, even leaves from a park are beautiful in a clear glass vase. I’d rather see that than fake anything any day.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) A lot of guys go in immediately for status, as opposed to comfort and allowing their home to tell a story about them.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) Working on ‘Big Give’ was an opportunity that I felt compelled to do. It was my chance to share in showing people how they can give big in their own life, to send the message that giving goes way beyond the gift of money. We want to share that the best thing you can give is your time and understanding  (Nate Berkus Quotes) You don’t have to paint your walls lime green just to try to have your home feel decorated. If you’re a classic dresser or preppy dresser or a modern dresser, you wear a lot of black - whatever it is - your home should reflect that as well.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) I didn’t grow up thinking I’d be a decorator. Design is my greatest passion, and it naturally just pulled me down the path. Same with TV. Being famous or having a show was never the motivation. I got a call and was swept up by the challenge of that first small space redesign.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) Layering in different patterns will keep things from appearing too studied  (Nate Berkus Quotes) I hate sets. I’ve always hated sets. I think that if you have a dining room set, break it up!  (Nate Berkus Quotes) There’s something I call ‘Moving Day,’ which I’ve done for the last 20 years. Look at everything in your home, then think about how you could combine things in a different way. Maybe you break up your night tables and use one in the family room; maybe the dining room sideboard becomes a console table for your television, with storage underneath.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) I didn’t necessarily want to be famous growing up, but I knew I would be a good famous person because I’m not offended if somebody comes up to me and knows things about me and wants to engage me in a conversation.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) In design-speak, ‘a library’ means a room lined with books, floor-to ceiling, but it all depends on the space you have. You may have a free-standing bookshelf of your favorite books if that’s all you have room for.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) First and foremost, I’m a decorator and product designer. Everything I do, the television shows, the books, that comes from the design work. It’s what I love.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) Some kids spent their allowance going to see ‘Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom’ I spent mine on a great-looking lamp I’d found at the flea market and a ceramic bowl from a neighborhood garage sale.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) Priced to sell’ - just the phrase makes me smile. When a dealer says all the items in his booth are priced to sell, he means he’s tagged them as aggressively as he can to get you to buy them. Don’t worry, though, I still haggle. You have to. That’s the point of a flea market.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) When I take on a design project, I have to jet from the bookstore to the hardware shop to the lamp store and back again just to collect a small portion of the many items I need to fill a home. But, when you hit the flea market, they’re all right there. From booth to booth, you have the bases covered.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) Even as a 10-year-old, I remember trying to explain to my mother and stepfather how upset and frustrated a messy room made me. But they just couldn’t grasp it. They wanted me to be playing with baseballs and frogs while I wanted to be scouring garage sales.  (Nate Berkus Quotes) We’re not handling things anymore before they arrive on our doorstep. I like to feel how thin porcelain can be, run my hand over a textile, see if I want to sit in a chair.  (Nate Berkus Quotes)
