Lauren Conrad Advises To Invest In Classic Furniture: "There’s a reason classic is, well, classic," Conrad says. "Incorporating pieces that have withstood the test of time gives you the freedom to translate them as your design style evolves. Using classic furniture, prints, and fabrics provides you with a basic foundation to build on with trendy or personalized accessories and finishes. Let’s say you find a gorgeous antique credenza or a traditional armchair. You love the shape and feel of the piece, but the finish or fabric is all wrong. In this situation, I say: invest! There are plenty of ways to transform an older, classic shaped piece of furniture. If it’s a sofa: reupholster, add throw pillows . . . An aged dresser: paint it! The possibilities are endless when it comes to updating a timeless piece."

 

Justin Timberlake Says It Is All About Fabric: "Get creative with fabrics—you can change up your drapes using cashmere or wool or plaid, or soften your table setting with different textiles," Timberlake advises. "Think about when you go to a restaurant or store you love—it’s all been thought out so that everything complements everything else. You can do that at home by being conscious of how things tie together."
