You know her best from “Flea Market Flip” and her co-host position on “Good Morning America”. Lara Spencer’s newest endeavor is an HGTV show that just premiered called “Everything but the House” where she helps clear out, declutter, and turn junk into real cash. Before getting a sneak peek into her strategies, the world got a tour of her own home on “The Rachael Ray Show.”

Spencer first takes viewers into her off-white living room, a monochromatic look that can be intimidating. She shares her secret for pulling it off: “If you want to go monochromatic, you have to make sure you have different textures and everything has a feel.”

Spencer calls the room “light and bright” and integrates light grays and beiges to create her off-white look. And about that texture: from the rug to the sofa fabric, everything looks like you want to touch it if you walk by.

But you’ll also notice that monochromatic doesn’t mean that every single item is the same color. A bold, textured piece of wall art is turquoise. Her coffee table is a dark brown/black, as are the arms of her accent chairs. Another coffee table is clear, helping to show off the carpet texture.

Much of her decor, including an off-white vase with white flowers, however, maintain her theme. Large windows feature full-length textured curtains, and there’s an abundant use of suede and other materials that somehow work flawlessly together.
