Oprah Winfrey's Design Guru

Fans of The Oprah Winfrey Show have seen Nate Berkus pull off over 100 design makeovers already. After almost nine years with Oprah, Berkus goes solo with his own talk show, The Nate Berkus Show!

Oprah introduced the world to Phil McGraw, Rachael Ray and Mehmet Oz, who all ended up with their very own shows. Now, she has helped launch her resident design expert: The Nate Berkus Show premieres September 13!

Nate Berkus Show premieres

"I can't believe it's finally here," Berkus blogged. "I am so proud of what my team and I put together! From the show graphics to the guests, I couldn't be prouder! The most amazing part, this is just the beginning."

The Nate Berkus Show is obviously built around style, but guests from different walks of life will also be there to get personal and dish about topics like family, relationships, entertaining, finances and getting organized.

"I want the show to inspire," Berkus told NBC. "I want the show to empower. I want the show to give people real information. If they're going to give me an hour of their day, I want that hour to be time well spent."

While the show is about lifestyle as well as style, Oprah's design guy has created quite a designer's studio for his new syndicated talk show!

In addition to an entire wall of living plants, his homey lab includes the Instant Design Studio, which uses 3-D gaming technology to create virtual spaces. That means viewers can actually see what he has in mind before any legwork or changes have been done!

No doubt, fans will soon be sending out prayers for their own Nate's Crate delivery. Berkus plans to surprise guests, viewers and who knows who else with special deliveries that come in, as the name suggests, a big crate.

"There's never been a show like this on TV," Berkus promised. "Everything I've learned, I'm going to teach this audience."

Guests on upcoming episodes include Dolly Parton and Jamie Lee Curtis, but for today's premiere episode, Berkus had Elizabeth Edwards as his guest and also surprised a single mom with a kitchen makeover.

Elizabeth Edwards dishes about her new Chapel Hill interior furnishing shop Red Window and also opened up about her battle with breast cancer and her mortifying public breakup with former presidential candidate John Edwards, who infamously had an affair and a baby on the side.

While the show offers big promise for viewers, it will also go down as the first big time talk show hosted by an outwardly gay man, marking a momentous step for gay America.

I was so sad and surprised that Nate's show was being canceled. I was very happy that it was still on after the initial news, only to discover it had been replaced in September. In my opinion it was the BEST show on daytime tv. Any chance his show will turn up somewhere else?

I agree with the first two ladies and their comment about getting the recipe for pound cake. Sure with that you could make it easier. I will go to the internet for the cake recipe but would like to have the mousse recipe. Can you help?

Mickie Dressler August 21, 2012 | 11:47 AM

Hi,I would also like the receipe for the Lemon glaze & the Lemon Curd that was shown with the Pound cake from Kim Nelson from Daisy Cakes Thank you Micki

The Nate Burkus show with the "lemon" pound cake was just rerun. The pound cake was not a lemon pound cake but a vanilla pound cake with a vanilla glaze. We, the audience, were told that we could substitute the vanilla in the glaze with lemon. The recipe for the pound cake and glaze can be found on the internet, but not on the Nate Burkus website, very disappointing. The recipe for the lemon mouss is no where to be found though. :-(

I'm was very disapointed to read that The Nate Show is being canceled. I watch TV very seldom except for this show which i try to watch every day. Nate is so talented and he is so open. He shows that he loves doing what he is doing. I love watching his suprises almost as much as he loves doing them. He has finally motivated me to do something with my room. I love him and his show and will miss watching both very much.

I love, love, love the show! I'm glad that you're much better after your surgery. My best friend is living in Maine. Her husband is in the Navy and they are being sent to California where they will be downsizing their home. She has some beautiful antique pieces that I want to buy. My problem is this, I can't afford to have them brought over to Chicago from Maine and pay her as well. I'm hoping you can help me come up with a way to ship the items to me inexpensively and in tacked. Price is my main concern because I still have to come up with a way to buy the furniture. Please help I think they'll be ready to move in April. HELP ME PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you, Marilu
