display_description"Does your home tell the story of who you are? In The Things That Matter, Nate Berkus shares intimate stories from his life, introduces us to people who influenced him and helped him forge his sense of style, and opens up about the remarkable experiences that have left him forever changed. All of which find expression in how he lives today--from his most cherished flea market finds, to his beloved books and photos, to the many extraordinary mementos he's collected in his travels--every piece defines who he's become and what endures in his world. Berkus invites readers into his own home as well as into 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. The distinctive interiors beautifully displayed in this book offer revealing portraits of their owners' lives and the inspiring choices that have made them who they are today. The Things That Matter convincingly lays out Nate Berkus's philosophy 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"-- ""I love beautiful things, but even more than that, I like things that remind me of where I've been. Who I've loved. Who I love. And where I want to go." What made Nate Berkus one of Oprah's all-stars was the compassion and insight he brought to the subject of design. Along with a superb sense of taste and a discerning eye came an intuitive, heartfelt understanding of how our interior lives, our emotional make-up, can and should be reflected in the places we live. Here, Berkus invites us into his favorite homes--ones that belong to friends, tastemakers, celebrities, and regular folk with a knack for creating spaces that are at once stunning and showcase who they really are"--
