Nate Berkus can you hear us? It's NateDay!

The day has finally arrived! Remember a month ago over on twitter when the @moggitgirls suggested Nate Berkus fill the audience of his new show with designer bloggers? Than I suggested we really ramp it up to get his attention with a "NateDay" when we all would blog about our favorite Nate Room or Product? Well its here, exactly 3 months to his first show - Monday September 13th!

I have to say what I admire most about Nate Berkus is how he not only designs but educates his clients about making the right purchases. In my opinion the best thing any of us designers can do is truly listen and collaborate with our homeowners. Nate does this seamlessly and his enthusiasm is absolutely contagious! Come along as I celebrate a day in the life of my favorite Nate designed rooms!


<span class=
I would start my day in this gorgeous Zebrawood kitchen sipping my hot tea and checking in on all the other #NateDay bloggers!


<span class=
Next I would move into the light filled office with it's dark floors and expansive inspiration board! I have been dreaming of this space for a while now.


<span class=
Later in the day I would take a lunch break to flip through design books and gather inspiration for my current client projects!


<span class=
Next I would do a bit of shopping for clients (ok ok and myself too!) over at HSN and the Nate Collection! The Studio Sofa is the perfect size for a bedroom reading nook and it is super affordable, perfect for any CreateGirl's budget!



<span class=
In the evening I would gather my favorite design bloggers and have a little dinner party in this understated dining room. Check out the nailhead trim on those chairs...love!

So what do you say Nate? Are you feeling the love from our #NateDay?
Looks like you are ready for a hug!
