All About Nate Berkus: Target Collection and Book Signing at Jayson Home
Fall 2012 is all about Nate Berkus. Between the release of his book, The Things That Matter, and his recent collaboration with Target, the man is everywhere this season. And we love it—bring on the Berkus!
Since the Target team-up was announced earlier this year, we have been anxiously awaiting the debut of Berkus’s self-titled line of home goods. And it is worth the hype. With more than 150 products priced from $5 to $150, a home makeover has never been so affordable or so stylish. Known for designing interiors that capture the personalities of the owners, Berkus created this collection with the philosophy that “homes should evoke a feeling, not a theme.” The collection includes chevron-patterned duvets, ikat towels, herringbone window treatments, trays, rugs, lacquered tortoise shells, ceramic urns, decorative pillows, and more. Gather ideas for your Nate Berkus-inspired interiors here and here.
But don’t think that he has forgotten his Chicago roots. Tonight, Berkus is having a book signing at Jayson Home (1885 N. Clybourn Ave., 773-248-8180) from 5-8 p.m. The Things That Matter isn’t your run-of-the-mill coffee table book. In it, Berkus discusses personal experiences that have influenced his style. Tour his home as well as twelve others, including CH+G stylist Barri Leiner Grant’s Lake Shore apartment. Grab your copy and stop by for conversation, bubbly, and bites.
