Oprah and Nate Berkus: The Things That Matter, Parts 1 and 2

Oprah Winfrey sits down with interior designer Nate Berkus to discuss his latest book, The Things That Matter. Introduced on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2002, Nate became a familiar face with more than 50 guest appearances and 130 transformational makeovers. His creativity and friendly personality allowed him to launch his own design firm and take center stage as host of The Nate Berkus Show from 2010 to 2012. Oprah welcomes Nate back to Chicago for their most personal interview yet. Nate speaks candidly about the milestones of his life's journey so far: coming out to his family, losing the love of his life and the cancellation of his daytime talk show.

In Part 2 of their interview, Nate opens up about surviving the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami; the death of his partner, Fernando Bengoechea; and how the experience changed his life forever.
