“My Kitchen Needs Nate” Web Series Premieres

December 2, 2014

Designer Nate Berkus heads up a new makeover series featuring a kitchen redesign for Kansas City homeowners Tim and Lauren Oliphant, winners of the LG Studio “My Kitchen Needs Nate” contest. The four-episode web series showcasing Berkus’ renovation of the Oliphant’s kitchen debuts on LGStudioKitchen.com.

The series, shot over the course of the renovation, documents Berkus planning and implementing his vision for the couple’s new kitchen. From demolition day to local antique store shopping trips and, finally, the big reveal itself, the series captures every moment of the complete kitchen overhaul – which includes a new floor plan, updated features and the complete line of premium LG Studio built-in appliances.

“I had an absolute blast creating the Oliphants’ signature kitchen for this series,” said Berkus, who serves as artistic advisor for LG Studio. “My goal was to stay true to the family’s specific wishes and design hopes while completely revamping the space to better meet their needs. By layering in vintage pieces with character and patina, along with high-end fixtures and LG Studio appliances, we were able to bring the Oliphants’ personality into the space, while also adding a level of functionality that their previous kitchen lacked. Just seeing the looks on Tim and Lauren’s faces when they saw their new kitchen for the first time…it’s the best part of my job!”
