Dormspiration: Lauren Conrad’s Beverly Hills Penthouse

Comment on Post

There are style mavens, there are reality TV stars-turned-designers, and then there is Lauren Conrad. From her earliest days on Laguna Beach to her L.A. Candy series, she has since become a fashion icon and a source of inspiration for everyone with a taste for feminine, daring, and quirky design.

InStyle recently got the chance to tour Conrad’s Beverly Hills penthouse, which she currently shares with husband William Tell. With bright colors, perfectly mismatched prints and textures, and plenty of ingenuity, she’s transformed her space into a wonderland that offers a fresh spin on standard girly interior design.

In this article, we’ll take a tour of Lauren Conrad’s newly furnished home as Dormspiration for anyone who’s looking to decorate with a unique twist on florals and delicate style. Let’s get started!

Living Room

Conrad upgrades basic neutrals, like beige and taupe, with pops of unexpected color, such as the bright green sculptures and golden accents throughout her living room. The assortment of seating adds visual interest, and the gold-framed mirror above the fireplace invites light and warmth into the space.

Living room decor
Product Information: Spray Paint, Table, Ottoman, Pillow, Plant

Take a cue from Conrad’s love of tufted fabrics and metallic sheens with this brushed velvet storage ottoman. Minimize visual clutter with a clear rolling coffee table, which, when paired with leafy, hard-to-kill plants like this philodendron, look natural and inviting.

Finish your space with a couple of coats of gold spray paint on a thrifted lamp, sculpture, or mirror, then top off your bed or couch with a rosette textured throw pillow.

Dining Room

Bright colors belong with food, especially this sunny tangerine that Conrad used to amp up her breakfast nook in the kitchen. Vintage posters on the walls give an almost Norman Rockwell-feel to the setting. The classic marble table injects an old-time vibe as well, as do the floral cushions, mismatched chairs, and sunny houseplants.

Dining room decor
Product Information: Table, Poster, Sunflower Decals, Bowls, Wallpaper

Channel the cheeriness of Lauren Conrad’s breakfast nook with warm metallic tones and bright yellows. A burnished bronze folding side table makes an excellent nightstand or mini-bar for parties, especially when paired with a fun removable wallpaper backdrop that can cover a swath of wall. Use small decorative gold catch-all bowls for your keys and ID, and try a vintage poster or sunflower decals to brighten up the walls.

What do you think?

Do you like Lauren Conrad’s space? How would you classify your taste? Where do you get most of your design (and dorm)-spiration? Let us know with a comment!
