Over the past year, maintaining a sense of normalcy has proven to be quite the feat. For many, normalcy looked a lot like picking up a fun hobby or giving their home an exciting, new look. Among those who gave their home a refresh in the past year is interior designer Nate Berkus.

While chatting it up with People recently, Berkus revealed that in the past year one of his goals was to create a cozy, comfortable space in his home.

"Break off one of those [living room] chairs and push it into the window with a floor lamp and a great ottoman and a little side table," the Nate and Jeremiah: Save My House star shared. "For me, it's all about crafting an area in your home, once you've put away all the electronics, that is just cozy, comfortable, and highly textured."

Berkus also stressed the importance of relaxation rituals and why they're important, especially as of late.

"We need relaxation rituals. We need to honor the habits and the things we've put in place to make us function and tell our bodies what time of day it is and what we're meant to be doing," Berkus explained.

In addition to creating a relaxation nook in his home, late last year, Berkus and his partner, Jeremiah Brent took on the task of building a tiny home behind their house in Montauk, New York.
