Lauren Conrad on Decorating With Classics

If you haven't seen it already, starlet Lauren Conrad has an eponymous blog where she writes about everything from fashion to cooking to decorating, always in an approachable, empowering voice. She doesn't claim to be an expert on any of these topics, but rather shares what she's learned from experiences dressing up for fabulous fêtes and outfitting her own LA interiors. One piece of design advice that Conrad recently shared, which I particularly support, and which is oft forgotten on trendy design blogs, is to stick with the classics. Here's what Lauren had to say about the topic:

"There’s a reason classic is, well, classic. Incorporating pieces that have withstood the test of time gives you the freedom to translate them as your design style evolves. Using classic furniture, prints, and fabrics provides you with a basic foundation to build on with trendy or personalized accessories and finishes. Let’s say you find a gorgeous antique credenza or a traditional armchair. You love the shape and feel of the piece, but the finish or fabric is all wrong. In this situation, I say: invest! There are plenty of ways to transform an older, classic shaped piece of furniture. If it’s a sofa: reupholster, add throw pillows . . . An aged dresser: paint it! The possibilities are endless when it comes to updating a timeless piece."
