How HGTV’s Lauren Liess Balances Life, Design, and Imperfections

Have you heard of Lauren Liess? She’s a world-class but down-to-earth designer, and I can’t wait to introduce you to her. She’s not just a designer; she’s also a business owner and, most importantly, a mom to five lively kids! 

Oh, and if you’re a fan of HGTV’s ‘Best House on the Block,’ then you probably recognize her alongside her husband and business partner, David. But let me tell you, there’s a lot more to Lauren than what you see on TV.

Bringing the Outdoors In, Naturally

If there’s one thing Lauren absolutely adores, it’s nature. Her love for the outdoors shines through in everything she does, especially her fabric and furniture collections at Taylor King and Woodbridge Furniture. She’s all about that natural, relaxed vibe, and she’s great at bringing nature indoors.

Nature-Inspired Collections

Lauren’s latest collections are like a breath of fresh, natural air. She’s got pieces with beautiful natural woods like white oak and others that give off those earthy stone vibes. And let’s not forget her textile collection, featuring designs like ferns, thistles, and leafy Paisleys, all inspired by the beauty of the natural world.

Family-Friendly Fun

Being a mom of five, Lauren knows a thing or two about family-friendly design. Forget about waiting until the kids are grown to enjoy nice things. She designs with durability in mind, offering machine-washable slipcovers and furniture that can handle rough and tumble play.

Life for Lauren is a constant juggling act between family, home, and business. Sound familiar? She admits there’s never really a perfect balance, but she and her husband make it work as a team. Lowering expectations and embracing imperfections is her secret and recommendation for anyone navigating the chaos.

Imperfectly Perfect

Imperfection is a main focus of Lauren’s designs. Her furniture is meant to be lived in and loved, just like life itself. When you focus on people rather than things, life gets a whole lot easier. Throw in her personal style of being laid-back, relaxed, and down-to-earth. She’s not into fancy, but she knows how to create a home that feels warm and inviting.

So, there you have it, a sneak peek into the world of Lauren Liess. She’s more than just a nature-loving designer; she’s a storyteller, an advocate for imperfections, and a lover of life’s beautiful moments.
