As the hordes of interior design enthusiasts on Twitter are well aware, today, June 14th, 2010 is #NateDay, celebrating the work of interior design talent, Nate Berkus.

Many of you may be familiar with Nate's work from his numerous installments on Oprah's show, as well as his editorial spreads in various shelter magazines.  Considering the way his interiors have such an effect on so many, we decided to explore some of the reasons his work is makes such an impact:

* Nate Berkus seems to understand the difference between a house and a home.  He designs spaces for the people who will live in them, and creates settings that suit the needs of their individual lifestyles.
* Relatable rooms - Nate's designs keep a focus on interactions.  They are oriented toward conversing and entertaining.  He never overlooks the social side of living.
* It's all about the mix.  Every Nate Berkus space seems to maintain the proper mix of old and new, mix of textures and finishes, and mix of color palates.  Mixing these elements add depth and interest to any home.

Psst: FYI: The Nate Berkus Show launches September 13th.
