When interior designer Nate Berkus isn’t finishing his daughter’s pancakes or whipping up a mean spicy marg, he’s busy creating collections like this one with husband, Jeremiah Brent.
Their latest collab with Living Spaces pulls together everything we love about good design: classic shapes, modern reinterpretation and total livability. Nate’s design ethos is that your home should tell a story about who you are. His approachable aesthetic is a perfect match to that of his husband’s, who – from what we can tell below – is also the more wellnessy of the pair.
Their new collection draws inspiration from their most personal design project — the home they’ve built together. We asked the designing power couple to share a morning at home with us. Read through their responses to our stylish series and then let that note from Jeremiah linger with you…is designer potpourri really back?
Nate: Black, and served in bed from Jeremiah.
Jeremiah: Extra strong with a splash of vanilla creamer.
Nate: That depends — sometimes bacon and eggs — or the rest of our daughter Poppy’s pancakes.
Jeremiah: I’m not a big breakfast person…more coffee?
Nate: Room service anything. Or the Chilaquiles con Mole Poblano at Matisse in Mexico City.
Jeremiah: A homemade stack of pancakes and maple bacon.
Nate: I eat like an 8-year-old.
Jeremiah: Any opportunity for the ceremony of a shared meal — keep it simple, keep it personal.
Jeremiah: I actually take a bajillion vitamins…but my favorite is turmeric. Turmeric everything.
Go-to juice or smoothie:
Nate: Greek yogurt, almond butter, a fig and a banana blended with ice.
Jeremiah: Lemon, ginger and cayenne.
