3 Pictures That Prove Lauren Conrad's Home Is the Ultimate Malibu Retreat

It would be easy to write Lauren Conrad off as simply a reality star, but the former lead on The Hills is now a certified lifestyle expert. A MyDomaine feature recently called her, "a Martha Stewart of the millennial generation," and went onto make its point by sharing breathtaking photos of Lauren's new, impeccably-decorated Pacific Palisades, CA, home. We got a good look at the property right after Lauren purchased it, and as the "before" photos demonstrate, Lauren made some seriously stylish design changes. Take a peek at the updated California cool property in the images ahead, and then visit MyDomaine for the full story.

The calmness that pervades the home is particularly abundant in the open, light-filled living room. Lauren furnished it with a mix of mid-century modern pieces and a pair of vintage chairs she found on Chairish.

Practical renovations in the bathroom brought the home up to contemporary standards without compromising the home's architectural features. A cast iron claw-foot tub anchors the airy space.

Lauren admits she's messy when she cooks, which is why she opted for Mystery White marble countertops, which are more stain resistant than Carrera. White subway tile and open shelving complete the contemporary boho-chic look.
