Nate Berkus LCDQ
The Irene Neuwirth boutique on Melrose Place; Nate Berkus in a rare moment of repose.

Nate Berkus and his elevated yet approachable designs have been making people swoon for nearly 20 years. Everyone from Oprah to Vogue to Elle Décor has lauded his warm, welcoming designs.

He transforms spaces by following his simple, yet powerful belief…”Your home should tell a story. What you love most collected and gathered in one place.”

Designer, author, and dad to daughter Poppy with husband and fellow designer Jeremiah Brent, Nate’s latest project is helping distressed homeowners out of their money-pit disasters in Nate & Jeremiah By Design on TLC.

In between play dates and design projects, Nate revealed where he loves to hunt, shop,and hang in the quarter.

Favorite thing about visiting & shopping LCDQ is…

“I have always said that you’d have to be a terrible decorator to do a bad job in L.A. The resources are amazing here, and LCDQ is a fantastic one-stop area for everything from textiles to statuary and furniture.”

Best score ever was…

“An incredible Chinese silver box from Dragonette, and a large marble coffee table from Hollywood at Home… 20 years apart.”

Biggest design weakness and where I get my fix…

“Ethnic textiles and raw antique furniture at Hollywood at Home.”

Where I take clients (and myself) before/after shopping LCDQ…

Lemonade on Beverly Boulevard and Alfred Coffee & Kitchen on Melrose Place. Both are great for people watching.”

For non-design browsing around the LCDQ…

“I love Irene Neuwirth, A.P.C. for jeans, and Santa Maria Novella.”

Where I have a post-shopping cocktail…

“I’ll have a Tower Smash at the Tower Bar [at Sunset Tower Hotel].”

Inspiring place to see close to LCDQ…

LACMA. The layout makes it fun to explore, and the collections are extraordinary.”

LACMA’s striking, inspiring exteriors.

Hotel I’d recommend to visitors…

“The Sunset Tower Hotel. It’s the best scene in the city and impeccable service.”

The hidden gem of LCDQ is really…

Hallworth Design. It’s literally hiding behind the also amazing Lee Stanton.”

Biggest misconception visitors have about LCDQ is…

“That everything is new and expensive. Most of the inventory is vintage or antique and usually very fairly priced.”
