DC Design House - Lauren Liess

As promised, this week (and next) I wanted to share with you some of my favorite rooms from this year's DC Design House. First up is Lauren Liess's "Hideaway Room:"

You are probably already familiar with her work and blog, Pure Style Home. She applied her fresh, organic style to her room, which was designed to serve as a getaway spot.

She added many whimsical touches, inspired by Alice in Wonderland, that gave the room lots of character and made it feel so cozy. All of the textures, from the grasscloth wallpaper to the rug, also added to the warm, welcoming feel of the space.

I am in love with that desk (which was actually a last-minute find after an accident with the original!)

Lauren's path to design is so inspirational as well. Feeling unfulfilled with her chosen career path in Public Relations (hmm, that sounds familiar!) she set out to study interior design, and soon started taking on design clients. This quickly led to starting her own business, which has really taken off! Lauren wrote a wonderful post on how she got started here.  

Here are just a few photos of her work (her own home):

I had the opportunity to meet her at the Design House last week, and she is so sweet, too! I hope you enjoyed a glimpse of her work!
