Nate Berkus was best known for being a regular home design consultant on the Oprah Winfrey Show, and the eventual syndication of the The Nate Berkus Show in 2010. A few years later, he married his own signature style to Target Home, and introduced a line of bedding, bath, window treatments, and much more. Berkus described his design passion to Architectural Digest this summer: “Our houses represent who we are, who we’ve loved, how we’ve spent our afternoons, and who we’ve spent them with.”
Berkus appears to be the unsung hero of neutrals. With materials like wood and brass, Berkus’s collection for Fall 2013 is especially understated. Berkus is a fan of clean lines, refined details, and practicality. Complete with geometric prints, stunning brassy vases, and woven ottomans; Berkus encourages on-point trends without forcing us to commit to a color pallet. Instead, we feel we could combine several of his pieces, and find they blend seamlessly. Versatile, edgy, yet precise are keywords for Berkus.
The Fall 2013 collection is a reflection of big design trends of today, and yet the pieces feel classic. We can still introduce chevron and a pop of color seen in this shower curtain, but it leaves room for other bathroom accessories to have their own edge.
This season’s collection is inspired by the designer’s travels; specifically Greece, Mexico, and South America. Architecture unique to these destinations is represented in embellishments and color choices.
Target junkies should be especially pleased. The collection is exactly what consumers expect: stylish picks at reasonable prices. Chunky prints mesh well with antique, metallic textures – meaning Berkus has brought yet another winning collection, reminiscent of Target’s own Threshold. Everyday style and quality is what Target constantly promises, and Berkus adds to that identity.
