Oprah's favorite interior decorator, 39, has created his own daytime program: The Nate Berkus Show, debuting Sept. 13.

ARE YOU NERVOUS GOING OUT ON YOUR OWN?

Actually, I'm not. I told Oprah that, and she said, "Neither was I when my show went national." I feel good about that.

ELIZABETH EDWARDS IS YOUR DEBUT GUEST.

She's told her story; my focus was how she's reclaiming her life. It's something we both have in common, having been through so much in the public eye.

HOW DID YOU LIKE MOVING TO NEW YORK FOR THE SHOW?

My new apartment is very modern, different from what I'm used to. My favorite thing about it is, I can see the Statue of Liberty from my breakfast table!
