Lauren Conrad decorates hospital for Christmas treat

U.S. reality TV star-turned-fashion designer Lauren Conrad spread some Christmas cheer at the Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) over the weekend (ends21Dec14) by sprucing up on-call rooms for overworked doctors and medical staff.

The Hills star donated items from her LC Lauren Conrad homeware collection including bedding, decorations and gifts, to help make Christmas more homely for doctors and nurses working through the festive period.

Conrad teamed up with a CHLA patient called Emily to execute the heart-warming project.

She tells US Weekly magazine,"We got to fix up some of the on-call rooms which was really cool especially during the holidays. I think that all the doctors here work so hard to make everybody else so comfortable, it's nice to be able to do something for them.

"We definitely wanted to make it a gender neutral room which was great to do with the line because the LC Lauren Conrad line does tend to skew more feminine, but it was nice to have the opportunity to put the pieces into a room that worked for men as well."

Emily added, "The doctors deserve this so when they come in they'll feel welcome - they work so hard and have to stay overnight."
