Bravo, Nate Berkus!

Monday, March 08, 2010

Who else loved this Nate Berkus-designed Chicago home in ELLE DECOR this month? When I got my issue in the mail, my boyfriend and I immediately swooned over the cover shot above. As a former magazine editor, I know that a great cover doesn't always mean an interesting story, but in this case it did. William Waldron's photos are gorgeous, the interiors are stylish-but-livable and the text itself is fun; in particular, I loved writer Ellen Rakieten's opening lines:
Like many things in life, it all started with one question. Decorator Nate Berkus walked into the master bedroom of my old apartment, took one look around, and confronted me: “You are the executive producer of The Oprah Winfrey Show, the most ‘Get it done’ and ‘Make it happen’ person I know. Why does this room look like a hellhole?”

All photographs by William Waldron for ELLE DECOR.
