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 . 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.
