The blog world can be a blur but somehow I found my way to Lauren Liess's Pure Style Home, another DC area blogger. First I was drawn in by the guest room re-do for her client and then noticed all the special touches in her son's nursery (photo on the left)

Guest room - Aren't the lamps terrific!
Lauren incorported this existing artwork into the design (below) along with a more abstract piece.

Love this living room below - bright, airy and warm at the same time.

More pics of Lauren's nursery design. Notice the subtle stripes on the wall. Lauren opened her design firm, Pure Style, LLC in 2006 - you can visit her site here.
