Lauren Liess: My Hero

Lauren Liess: My Hero


So, in my last post I gave my my old hood a hard time about not having much design street cred before Darryl Carter… I stand corrected. A girlfriend of mine  @enj1oo5 insisted I check out another NOVA designer/momma, “she is the BOMB.com of designers.” And, yes, she is. It is hard to find a woman that can put together a room that doesn’t feel too feminine or precious, a room that has some character. There are oodles of women designers that are super talented, but the designs feel different than Lauren’s. The spaces can sometimes feel a little model home-ish. Stunning and beautiful, but with no discernible mark of the homeowner. That is what I love about Lauren Liess, she gives a room that little bit of soul. Not to mentions her incredible textiles. They feel ethnic and refined. Obvi, something this good catches on, she was just featured in Domino! Super inspired by her work, and stoked to visit her studio that just opened up in Great Falls, VA. laurenliess.com
