STYLE FILE: Nate Berkus' "The Things That Matter" Book Giveaway

Nate Berkus is a history-lovers' design darling. Ever since his first makeover on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2002, when he transformed a 319-square-foot, Boston-based studio into an intimate sanctuary featuring customized cabinetry and multifunctional furniture (click HERE to watch video), his message for creating great interiors was clear. 

Throughout our lives, the collection of treasures we amass define who we are and offers a portal to our past. When we adorn our homes with our most precious possessions, Berkus believes it's then we create truly inspired, one-of-a-kind spaces.

In his new tome, The Things That Matter, Nate shares masterful design tips, reflects on the people and personal events that helped to transform his own life, asks some of the nation's most notable residents to name which possession they would save if their home went "towering inferno", and even offers an inside peek into twelve stylish homes, including his own, each one reverberating with their owners' colorful pasts.

Guess which item Nate would save if 
his Manhattan apartment caught fire.
