WATCH: Nate Berkus Plays Design Would You Rather, Reveals the Perfect Throw Pillow Formula

Posted on

 

Nate Berkus is taking a stance on throw pillows.

“Many pillows on the bed,” Berkus, 45, answers during a game of PEOPLE’s Interior Design: Would You Rather. “Four pillows that you sleep on . . . and then I would do three to five pillows decorative on top. And everyone flings them on the floor, so it’s fine.”

The interior designer also stands firm that pillows should be fluffed up, not karate chopped, and casts a convincing vote for marble countertops. “I’m so tired of granite,” he says.

Lines get blurred, though, when Berkus has to choose between a tub or a shower. Although his and husband Jeremiah Brent’s daughter, Poppy, loves a good soak, he can’t deny the power of a hot shower. “I love a bath tub, our daughter loves a bath tub, but I love a big shower, too,” he says.

But when it comes to a bigger, better master bath or closet, Berkus doesn’t hesitate in the full video above. “Closet, man. All day long,” he says.
