You've probably heard of designer Nate Berkus, right?
His stunning Manhattan apartment, in New York City, which was featured in Architectural Digest recently, caught my eye when I saw it on one of my favourite blogs, here. Although I usually go for softer, more feminine home styles, this place made my jaw drop.
The mix of classic styles and a dash of bravado creates bold beautiful rooms. Berkus combined beloved pieces he had owned for years with bespoke fittings, new oak parquet flooring throughout, fresh paint and wall coverings, as well as clever architectural features and details, to transform the apartment into his dream home.
My favourite space is the library-dining room. As you may recall, I did a post on library-dining rooms, because I love them so much. Another impressive element in this apartment is the glass partitions between some of the rooms, including the kitchen and a guest room.
I will definitely be keeping my eye out for more work by this amazing designer. I may even consider letting some manly elements into The Dream House, which would definitely make my partner happy.
