Nate Berkus recently sold his apartment on West 9th Street in the quaint West Village of NYC and bought a new one around the corner on West 10th/5th Ave.  Although I can’t quite afford the square footage that he’s got, at least I know I’m in the right neighborhood!  It seems as though he took a much calmer, neutral, serene approach to this apartment.  All that white makes me a little nervous but I’m assuming he can reupholster it and have it cleaned in a flash.  After all, he’s Oprah’s design child (AKA one of her favorite things)

Here he is all dressed up and ready to show off his new digs!



Even 5 million won’t get you large bedrooms in NYC


The DR has a very natural, simple feel to it


The arched “greenhouse” windows are a nice addition in the kitchen


A shot of the LR without NB in it.  A lot of white!


A neutral master bedroom with what looks like a high gloss painted ceiling?


And the terrace…a lovely amenity with view of the city


This is the floor plan of his duplex on West 10th/5th Ave

Obsession with Polka Dots

Posted By Rebecca-NY | Aug 20, 2013 | No Comments | Category: Uncategorized

The polka dot.  It’s been around for years and apparently it’s one of this season’s biggest trends.  Has it ever gone out of trend?  I remember wearing polka dots as a kid and for the longest time I thought of them as playful and juvenile.  As an adult I went through my phases, a polka dot skirt here and a polka dot scarf there, but  it never quite phased me why I was choosing to wear these things or if they were trendy.  The polka dot was just there and available.  It’s a simple statement yet these days seems so sophisticated and fresh and apparently has lasting power.   Therefore, I have a new obsession with the polka dot.  Whether it’s in my wardrobe,  a fabric or a fun piece of art I find myself drawn in and wanting more.  Am I a victim of this trend or have I always loved the polka dot?

dots and stripes

mixing the stripe with the polka dot


The polka dot is perfect with a pair of jeans but you can mix it with just about anything – especially a coordinating stripe or solid


This fabric would coordinate nicely with a larger floral or ethnic print
