Nate Berkus has been helping clients create personalized spaces for more than 20 years. The Nate and Jeremiah Home Project star is now sharing his tips for homeowners starting a remodel.

“One thing that I’ve always advocated as a designer over the past 26 years is that our homes and our spaces reflect who we are and who we are,” the HGTV star told Heavy.

Rather than just copying conversions from TV or magazines, Berkus added, “I think for anyone starting a renovation, whether it’s their home or their workplace, I think it’s really important to stop and taking the time to figure out what design choice to make let that represent the things that really matter to you, the things that matter.”

Berkus founded his design officeNate Berkus Associates, in 1995. Since then he has made a name for himself with shows such as The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Nate Berkus Show and Nate & Jeremiah By Design.

“I’ve seen a lot of my own clients say to me, ‘You know, my mom was born in Mexico. Is there anything we can add culturally that’s representative of contemporary modern art?’” he said. “So it’s going to take a little longer. It definitely needs a little more thought. But what you end up with is an interior and space that is crafted entirely for you and feels layered and pieced together and is carefully thought out put together.”

Homeowners are sometimes ‘afraid to take risks’

However, he acknowledges that designers who are new to design can lack confidence. As the 50-year-old explained, “They’re scared of taking risks or that their mother-in-law is going to be really mean about their decision.”

Berkus continued, “I understand that furniture and decor can be expensive, so I’m not saying it’s not important to try to get everything right the first time. What I am advocating is a slightly more considered approach. And just because you see something on the pages of a catalog or magazine doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the right aesthetic for you.”

Berkus has partnered with American Express and Dell to redesign Lincoln Square Veterinary Hospital

This principle can also be applied to companies. As a small business owner, Berkus recently worked with American Express and Dell Technologies to redesign Lincoln Square Veterinary Hospital in New York City.

“I have been a member of the Amex Business Platinum Card since 1996. dr Fried has been a member for a long time. We’ve both seen explosions in our, in our, industries from the pandemic,” the Rock the Block graduate told Heavy. “I didn’t realize that, but Dr. Fried told me that many people have welcomed a new, you know, four-legged family member into their family during the pandemic. And we’ve seen a tremendous increase in design with both our existing clients and new clients who are looking to change their space because they’ve spent so much time there.”

dr According to Berkus, Fried brought “an enormous amount of humor” to the first design presentation. “That prompted me to look for things that were representative of his company’s culture. We interpreted that by using enlarged images, really cute images of animals as part of the design.”

“We are extremely grateful to Lincoln Square Veterinary Hospital that American Express and Dell Technologies enabled us to not only have an incredible new reception area designed by the amazing Nate Berkus, but also a much-needed technology upgrade,” said dr Fried in a statement. “This redesign has reinvigorated all of our staff after some challenging times – and has given us the energy and passion to continue doing great work for our animal patients.”
