Quotes about Nate Berkus: I have a large watch collection, and classic watches are especially important to me. I had a silver Rolex, and I actually gave it to my little brother. He wears it every day. He's an actor, so whenever he goes to an audition, he can look down, see it, and it gives him confidence. It was a great thing to pass on.

Nate Berkus Quotes: Twitter is a place where you share your thoughts, yourself... you don't want a plain white backdrop for that. You want the entire page to say something about who you are.

Nate Berkus Quote: About 80 percent of the stuff I live with is old.

Nate Berkus Saying: I was a boy with one dream and one dream only: I wanted - no, strike that, I was desperate for - a room of my own.
