It’s Nate Day! Buy Nate, Not That….

Happy Nate Day!  Nate Day was organized by the Moggit Girls as a day for the design blog world to celebrate the one-and-only, designer extraordinaire, Nate Berkus.  The Nate Berkus Show premiers on September 13th.  I can’t wait to set my DVR!

I love that this guy an amazingly brilliant designer with big-budget clients like, hmmm OPRAH!, but he always designs with a mixture of high and low priced items and isn’t afraid of some DIY.  This philosophy is reflected in his FABULOUS line for the Home Shopping Network (HSN).  In honor of Nate Day, I thought it only appropriate to do a little BUY THIS, NOT THAT action to celebrate this gorgeous and affordable line of items for the home.  Shall we?

Buy This, Not That — Beach House Edition

Back by popular demand!!  I got so many positive comments on the last edition of “Buy This, Not That,” that I decided to make it a recurring theme.

I just finished The Beach House by Jane Green, which was set in a fabulous estate on Nantucket.  It was a yummy summer read and I was inspired to do a beach house edition of “Buy This, Not That.”  As always, most of these pieces would fit in with just about any decorating style – they are not limited to just a beach house.  Enjoy!
