Get The Look Of Lauren Conrad's Cool Cali Home
Every so often we come across a celebrity home makeover that gets us particularly excited. Such is the case with television personality, entrepreneur, author and designer Lauren Conrad's Pacific Palisades home, recently featured in MyDomaine. Every room is light filled with a textural bohemian vibe combined with a modern femininity that is synonymous with Lauren's style and personality.
Today, we asked one of our talented Decorist Elite designer Christina Higham to take over the blog and give us a few design tips on how Lauren achieved a stylish balance between her West Coast sensibility and her subtle traditional aesthetic. Christina recreated Lauren's cozy family room so you can shop your favorite pieces....and pick up a few design ideas for your own home while you're at it!
Pair Mid Century With Textures
Mid Century design has made a serious comeback - however with its sharp lines and wood finishes, a room full of mid century can feel very masculine. To avoid feeling like you're living in a Mad Men era time capsule, mix it up with textures and pattern with a throw, pillows - or a beautiful overdyed rug like the one in Conrad's space - which is oh-so soft and feminine.
Don't Be Afraid To Mix Prints
Mixing prints in a room helps keep the eye engaged - here we see different patterns throughout the throw pillows which works because they are anchored by their common color palate.
Give Your Space A Personal Touch With Vintage
Buying all new furniture is obviously incredibly satisfying (and fun!)- but adding a touch of vintage makes your house feel like a home, rather than a page ripped out of a catalog. The oil painting and antique brass flower vase help make Conrad's space feel collected.
