More than decorating,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Things That Matter (Hardcover)
I've enjoyed seeing Nate on different shows for a while. My favorite thing about him as a decorator is that he doesn't try to create "New York" wherever he goes. I'm sure New York is great but I don't live there.
This book was so much more than a decorating book though. I was pulled in by his description of the tsunami and touched by his descriptions of Fernando and what they meant to each other. I was fascinated by his chapter on Dr Ruth, my favorite chapter as well. I had no idea she had been through so much in her life, just amazing! I'll never look at turtles the same way again.
When I finished reading this I started changing things, the curtains in my dining room and kitchen are soon to be replaced, I bought some paint samples for my bedroom, our den is getting de-cluttered and A LOT of books are headed out, not this one though, it will be staying for good.
