These Famous Newlyweds Know How to Design on a Dime
Model and blogger Lauren Scruggs and E! News correspondent Jason Kennedy have stayed busy since tying the knot in December 2014. After the wedding, the Dallas-based bride moved to LA, where Jason films, and the two set up their first home as husband and wife. Blending belongings and design tastes can be challenging, but this couple managed to unite their decor around a love of neutral colors, natural accents, and calming vibes. What impresses us even more than their compatible style, however, is how affordably they decorated. The couple partnered with HomeGoods, filling their home with stylish and budget-friendly decor. Check out all the highlights here.
Spending quality time together is important to these newlyweds. Whether it's just the two of them or a house full of guests, they make time to come together around the table each night.
While Lauren keeps the servingware neutral, she makes it interesting by adding textured plates and glassware at varying heights, like these darling hobnail glasses from HomeGoods.
Lauren loves to cook, and this wooden dining table is the perfect place to serve up her culinary creations. One nonedible item you'll always find on her table is a bouquet of flowers. Hydrangeas are her favorite!
A chic bar cart, like this one full of glam mixed metallics, is a must have for a young couple like Lauren and Jason who frequently entertain.
More than booze, the bar cart is a great place to share pieces that represent who Lauren and Jason are as a couple. The etched crystal decanter was a wedding gift that they filled with Jason's favorite, 1942 tequila.
Different sizes of outdoor lanterns create a romantic ambience at night, perfect for all the alfresco entertaining the couple does in their backyard.
These lightweight chevron poufs — a steal at $40 from HomeGoods — are a favorite of the couple because they can easily be moved outside when more seating is needed around the fire pit.
Lauren considers the outdoor fire pit an extension of the home, and she strives to make it as cozy as the indoor spaces by filling it with plush pillows, like these from HomeGoods.
This tufted sofa hails back to Lauren's first apartment. Instead of splurging on a new sofa, she brought it with her to LA because the neutral color made it a perfect fit for her and Jason's newlywed home.
Cozy accents make the sofa inviting for guests and Jason, who loves to curl up on it with Lauren.
Oversize throw pillows in neutral tones were the perfect way to make Lauren's old sofa feel fresh in her new, shared home.
