Washington D.C. via Pure Style | decor + travel

pure style lauren liess, washington D.C., zoo, children cecyj travel life+StyleI’ve been an admirer of Lauren Liess and her work for some time now.  Lauren is an interior designer who shares her design projects and her lovely life in Northern Virginia (just outside of Washington, D.C.) with the world on her Pure Style blog.  What I love about Lauren is she keeps it simple but always offers a unique solution.  Her accomplishments include her own furniture line, fabric line (a piece shown above), a successful blog, and a thriving Interior Design firm.

I reached out to Lauren and she graciously agreed to provide us with some details on her design inspiration.  Since Lauren has 2 young boys, I also asked her to give us tips on traveling to the Washington D.C. area + the kids.

If you would like to contact Lauren for her design services, she can be reached at Pure Style.
