Spotlight On Lauren Conrad’s Pacific Palisades Home, Designed By Katherine Carter
I’m always slightly unsettled when I discover that a house tour, whether it’s the home of a blogger or an A-list celebrity, is no longer where that individual resides. This almost always happens, given editorial delays, and the fact that maybe a person doesn’t want the world to see where they’re making their toast on the daily, and so they wait to shoot the space until just before they’re out of there.
Still, I end up feeling as though the rug has been pulled out from under me; that person doesn’t even live there anymore! The illusion is ruined! Everything is fake!
It’s very emotional challenging looking at interiors online these days, isn’t it?
So, let me tell you up front: by now, Lauren Conrad will likely already have sold the home she purchased in 2015 and renovated with the help of Katherine Carter. She may once have spritzed her many bottles of perfume stationed tub-side while she soaked in that claw-footed majesty, but no longer.
Do not let your mind wander to such an image. Do not let it envision LC lathering her locks with hairstylist’s Kristin Ess’s new product range at Target (which, sidenote, I think might be bad, but smells pretty dang good). Nor should you conjecture which glasses from the bounty shown are the ones she’s using to serve tea.
Simply appreciate the lovely work of designer Katherine Carter; note the way in which she uses a bit of wood, whether in oak, maple, or walnut, manage to add warmth and character to all-white walls, and how she melds those seamlessly with brass, gold, and copper tones.
Appreciate, but do not imagine.
Live Simply by Annie: not ripping rugs out from under people since a bajillion years ago. (Except for yesterday, when my client and I had to cut out a section of carpet in her outdoor storage room in order to not die from the fumes of gasoline which had spilled thereon.)
(P.S. peep the entire home design on Katherine’s website here.)
