It’s easy to imagine the feeling of a luxury hotel room – with a strange but comforting space designed to be like a bedroom. It’s often associated with escaping reality – perhaps it’s inevitable to want to capture the aura of a hotel room when you return home; however, artist Nate Berkus suggests otherwise.
‘I don’t think our homes should be like hotels. Our homes should be seen as a true representation of what brings us happiness and how we all know and connect with luxury as a concept,’ he says in an interview with. H&G.
Nate, famous The Nate Berkus Show and Nate & Jeremiah Home ProjectHe recently launched a collection at Bloomingdales – naturally the most important thing for a designer in New York.
After recently introducing the best bed sheets and pillows on the market, it’s easy to see why creating a loft is top of mind for Nate. And that includes creating an environment that is better than the one you experience when you are away from home.
“I’ve spent much of my design career focusing on how things make us feel in our homes and how the choices we make in our homes tell personal stories,” says Nate.
‘One of my greatest joys is when I design and build a home for someone – and they can’t wait to go back to a nice hotel. I want our homes to feel better every day than the week we spend on vacation. I want to feel that every day. I miss my bed when I travel; I can’t wait to get back to my pillow.’
As Nate says, the best bedrooms are the ones that are personal – and that includes the look and feel of your bedroom. This was the basis of Nate’s collection for Bloomingdale’s (designed by mDesign) – designed to work in any home. and withstand the test of time.
‘One of the most challenging things about creating the Signature Collection was that I wanted the palette to be universal,’ explains Nate.
‘I wanted to feel like you can buy these pieces now and invest in changing the look of your bedroom through these things – but it’s not that controlled. It is based on arrangements that are rooted in the past, in ancient studies, and in history.’ There are, of course, many more pieces to admire, but we’ve listed our top three picks below.
