There’s no KonMari at Lauren Conrad’s house!
“I’ve always admired people who are true minimalists when it comes to their possessions,” the fashion designer and former The Hills star, 31, writes on her website. “But if I’m being honest with myself, I’m just not one of those people.”
She admits that her treasure trove of vintage tea cups, craft supplies, cake stands and fashion essentials — “It’s literally my job to stay on top of trends,” she explains — piles up in the home she shares with husband William Tell and their six-month-old son, Liam.
“I do tend to amass a lot of stuff,” she says. “It’s become imperative that I stay organized all year round.”
Following in the footsteps of stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Savannah Chrisley and Kacey Musgraves, Conrad teamed up with organizers-to-the-stars Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin of The Home Edit. Together, they tackled her formerly cluttered spaces and transformed them into an Instagram-perfect dream.
Shearer and Teplin may be the pros, but Conrad lent a little of her signature DIY magic to the projects as well. “We organized her office, kitchen, closet, and bathroom — and tried out some new tricks in the process thanks to LC and her crafty skills!” the duo wrote on Instagram. “Like using a Cricut machine to label the office closet with gold vinyl.”

Yarn, stationery, hot-glue and “odds” and “ends” are all stunningly corralled in the craft closet in white boxes and clear bins. Gifting essentials like tissue paper, twine and bows also get chic but stylish storage upgrades.
Each meal gets its own drawer in Conrad’s pantry. Acrylic containers are the superheroes, though, separating her ingredients into groups that are easy to grab when dinnertime comes. Another closet makes the less exciting essentials — like manuals, soap and sunscreen — look photo-worthy courtesy of opaque fronts and a dash of Shearer’s signature hand-written cursive labeling
Although she may not be a minimalist in 2018, Conrad will at least have fun and functional ways to support her stash. For the full run-down of her organizing spree, visit LaurenConrad.com.
