Oprah's favorite designer...hot or not?

Nate Berkus, that young and hip designer made famous due to his appearances on the Oprah show, can be a bit of a polarizing subject. In fact, many TV design personalities can lead to heated debates. I personally like Nate's style a lot. Not only do I find his personality appealing (and he's certainly okay on the eyes), I think he presents a very doable type of design. His spaces are eclectic, in that he doesn't stick to one era or genre of design. In that way, it could be argued he's not a "total" designer in that he can't replicate traditional design styles, but that's not necessary in this day in age. He's found his niche and his style and I think he does a good job. And though I'm sure money's not the object behind every designer's inevitable decision to write books, I believe he truly undertook writing a book to help out homeowner's achieve their design needs. He's not as flashy or as "fabulous" as other contemporary designers, but I think his rooms have an air of sophistication that can be inspiring to replicate.

I also am a huge fan of Nate Berkus. I think his style is sophisticated in a very unstuffy way. He has a simple and elegant way to make every room feel lived in and comfortable. I have also purchased many items from him personal line and have been very pleased with the quality. My home design would be a mess without Nate! Oh and you are right about Nate also being "okay on the eyes!"

I have seen way better designers than Nate, like Candce Olsen, Kenneth Brown, Vern and many more...I have not seen Nate does any thing by himself. He gets the credit for the things other helpers transform the space for him. What is his career beside Oprah....just like Gayle....know as Oprah's puppies?!!!
