Lauren Conrad Takes Us Home For The Holidays in Good Housekeeping

Of all The Hills cast members, Lauren Conrad has proven her business prowess the most. She got criticized at the time for being “boring” and calculated while her other cast-mates caused endless drama, but that shrewd decision kept her brand intact, and it’s paid off. Below are some quotes from her new interview with Good Housekeeping, where she took fans inside her stylish home for the holidays.

Lauren her newest holiday tradition—PJ’s: “One of my favorite new traditions, which is from my husband William’s family, is going over on Christmas morning in our pajamas. It’s really sweet — his mom drops off a set for me so we’ll all match.”

Lauren on keeping it casual for date night: “When William and I go on a date, it’s pretty casual. We have a local sushi place that we really like to go to. I love a place that you don’t have to put makeup on to go to. You can just go, have a glass of wine, eat dinner, and have a really relaxing night. Those are our favorite nights because we have busy days.”

On creating a less “girly” more blended home with William and learning to compromise: “When William and I first moved in together, he moved into my apartment, which was very girly. So when we got our first place together, I definitely had to learn to compromise. I’ve never had to do that before. I mean, a little bit with my roommates, but I think it’s good and I think that your home should represent both of you and both of your styles. It’s definitely a blend of our tastes. I think he’s toned down my girly a little bit, which is good because I’m an adult and everything can’t be pink. It’s fun.”

Lauren on the must-have holiday accessories that are worth the big splurge: “If you go to a lot of holiday parties, it’s good to invest in accessories that can help mix up a little black dress, such as a cool embellished jacket, a statement necklace or fun heels. Buying a new outfit for every party can get costly — I like having fun with accessories instead.”

Why the kitchen is everyone’s favorite room at the party: “No matter where I’m trying to entertain, everybody ends up in the kitchen. Wherever the food and drinks are that’s where they’ll be. I try to drag them to other rooms. I’m like, “Come on guys, I’ve decorated this whole room,” but they don’t care. They’re like, “The cheese platter is here.”
