The Penny-Pincher's Guide to Decorating Like Lauren Conrad

We hadn't stopped fawning over Lauren Conrad's stunning Pacific Palisades home, featured on MyDomaine in late October, when we heard that the home was officially put on the market after the star's pregnancy announcement earlier this year. While the $5.2 million price tag may be a little steep for many of us, it turns out Conrad's flawless décor style isn't so out of reach. The Cali-cool home, decorated with the help of interior designer Katherine Carter, had us swooning and longing for lazy afternoons basking in the natural light of her airy living room, while her kitchen—a baker's wildest dream—made us crave an indulgent Sunday breakfast, perfectly perched on her modernist barstools.

To emulate Conrad's décor acumen in our own homes, we tracked down our favorite décor picks from her home tour, which, to our surprise, included a selection of refreshingly budget-friendly accessories. Think you can't live large like Conrad? Think again—these under-$300 picks are sourced straight from her lovely Pacific Palisades manse.

The TV Room

Conrad's TV room is saturated in white tones and tons of natural light. To complement the rustic wooden beams, Conrad added touches of reclaimed wood and woven seagrass, and she added additional textures with tasseled and faux-fur pillows.
