“I always take baths,” says the former reality star turned designer of the clothing line Paper Crown. So when it came time to renovate her home in Laguna Beach, Calif., the bathroom became a top priority. With the help of her parents (“My dad’s an architect, so he does the construction, and my mom decorates”), Conrad, 25, created a “beachy and glamorous” ambience. “We found these ceramic floors that look just like wood,” she says. “And I’ve always loved the vintage feel of a claw-foot tub.”
“Blue is so soothing,” says the Cougar Town star, 47, who chose the color as the theme for her Malibu home’s bedroom, which contains her opaline drinking glass collection. “It’s bizarre to have glasses in the bedroom, but it’s fun,” says Miller, who shares her home with husband Bill Lawrence (Cougar Town‘s creator) and kids Charlotte, 11, Will, 8, and Henry, 5, plus three rescue dogs. “My kids, my dogs, we’re all in the bedroom on Saturday mornings.”
Tia & Tamera MOWRY
THE LIVING ROOM
The 33-year-old identical-twin sisters-and stars of a Style Network reality show, Tia & Tamera-have eerily similar design senses but add their own unique touches
“The pillows have the same feel, but they’re different fabrics,” says designer Tessa Johnson, who worked with both sisters.
ALL ON BOARD!
DOORS AS ART
Tamera got a chalkboard first, which inspired Tia to follow suit. “But I really use it!” says Tia. “Tamera’s is just for aesthetics.”
Tamera was also first to use a door as decoration. “It’s from a church in India,” Tamera says of hers. “When I see it, I see love.”
When Natalie Morales was renovating her Hoboken, N.J., brownstone in 2008, she didn’t have to look far for kitchen inspiration. “I brought my architect in to the Today show kitchen and said, ‘I want this in my house!'” says the news anchor, 39, pointing out some identical tile and fixtures in her airy room. Now it’s a favorite part of the house, where she often makes pancakes or banana bread for sons Josh, 7, and Luke, 3, and her husband, investment consultant Joe Rhodes. “We spend all our time in here,” she says. “It’s the heart of the home.”
