Today marks the premiere of the second season of The Nate Berkus Show on OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network. In his second season, designer, interior decorator, and best-selling author Nate Berkus brings his signature style back to daytime television with a show that helps viewers elevate their lives with beautiful, affordable, and easy changes that they can make right now.
Berkus and his team traveled across the country all summer transforming kitchens, laundry rooms, living rooms, bedrooms, and even entire city blocks. The results will be revealed in the new show, which begins today.
"We're having a party everyday and you're invited. My party favor to you is the information you can use to make your life more stylish," Berkus said. "We also have some big, emotional makeovers. My team and I have been working hard all summer to pull off some of the biggest reveals of my career and I can't wait to share the results with viewers at home."

We've been in full production all summer long with Nate doing what he loves best – surprising people in their homes and changing their lives! Design is still the heart of the show, but Nate will be at the center of all areas of lifestyle from fashion, cooking and entertaining to family, relationships, career and money matters. We're very conscious of the realities of daytime viewers' lives and will provide take-away tools in fun and engaging ways so that viewers get great information they can apply to their own lives."
