Bye Bye Nate


Did you see Oprah on Tuesday? It was Nate's last appearance. Seems he is leaving the nest to start his own show.

This is Nate's first visit on Oprah eight years ago. What's even funnier than his hair is the fact that I wondered if he was single. I'm a little slow.

Let's look back on some of the highlights...


His very first makeover was one of my all time favorites. This 319 square foot apartment is amazing.

It's all good.

I loved this home makeover from Alabama, but had a hard time finding good photos. The wallpaper, the chest, the light..years later it stills looks fabulous and current.

Here is another view from the living room into the dining room. The dining room was my favorite! I'll keep trying to find a photo to share, but in the meantime enjoy the giant Wisteria urns on the back wall. Do you have a favorite Nate makeover or moment?

P.S. Nate, I want a job. Nothing too demanding. I would be glad to help on your new show. I have lots of useful skills. It might be better to discuss my qualifications in person. Call me! Love, Sissy

  4. I love Nate...and as much as I love him and love his work, I loved that day he babysat the best. Did you see that? He was so cute with little Braydon. Can't wait to see his new show. You know anything Oprah touches turns to gold.

  5. I was so disappointed this morning when I couldn't access your blog post on Nate. So glad it worked this time. Alabama was my favourite. I have pictures of it somewhere, have to dig it out and read the article again. I have missed seeing Nate on Oprah (we're a bit behind in Australia) and now won't get to see him at all :-(
    Maybe there'll be stuff on the net for his new show.

  6. I'm glad I'm not the only one who wondered if he was taken! Such a cutie! Remember what he did to Kirstie Alley's home a few years back? it was awesome! Remember how awkward it was watching her aggressively flirt with him? Eeeeek!

  12. Please tell me the show isn't going to run on some obscure cable channel that I don't get! I don't think I've ever seen a Nate Berkus room that I didn't love.

  13. I adore him so much! I am pretty sure his boyfriend is Brian Atwood...of the fab shoe line with the same name. Who is also crazy talented and super cute!

  17. He really is a fabulous designer. He has been pruned, and sculpted with perfection by Oprah and now she is sending him off to the world. I cant wait to see his show!

  18. I had to laugh at the first picture. I said Out loud, what the heck is in his hair. I think it is that wax stuff, Yucky. He is still a doll and a very talented man indeed. Sissy if you get a job and need some help give me a call, Kathysue
