If we had to choose one celeb to decorate our home, it would hands down be Lauren Conrad: The designer’s airy, homey space is the stuff of our Pinterest dreams! When it comes to keeping it all organized, however, the 31-year-old admits it hasn’t always been her strong suit… until now.
The reality alum has teamed up with décor experts Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin of The Home Edit to whip her abode into a clutter-free oasis, and the end result is a truly fabulous one that even organizational queens Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian would envy.
The mommy of one shared her home makeover with readers of her blog, writing, “I’ve always admired people who are true minimalists when it comes to their possessions. But if I’m being honest with myself, I’m just not one of those people.”
She also shared plenty of photos of newly cleaned pad, showing everything from her closet to her kitchen pantry is in jaw-droppingly impeccable order and giving us DIY inspo to the max.
Her office, for instance, once likely a pile of messy papers, has been transformed into a calming space of labeled, all-white binders and storage boxes, with some colored yarn besides. “I am not an organized person. Never have been. So the fact that my office looks like this is nuts!” she wrote.
The former The Hills star also gave us some tips on how to get there ourselves, saying, “Create a spot for current, ongoing, or pending projects. Having a specific spot will decrease piles of clutter that can otherwise accumulate.”
She advises keeping “items you need within your immediate reach, making sure they “remain visible and accessible.”
Equally stunning is Conrad’s bathroom closet, which is making the most of deep shelf space with separate wicker baskets to hold each type of toiletry (Hair, nails, body, etc.). “Create a daily drawer or bin that holds all of the items you use on an everyday basis. It will save you time in the morning since everything will be at your fingertips,” the cookook author recommends.
As for our ACTUAL closets, LC says “If you haven’t worn something in the past year, there’s a good chance you never will. Donate it, give it away, or store it in a sentimental box for safekeeping — but never let an item you don’t wear take space away from the items you do wear.”
