My Favorite Room: Lauren Liess of Pure Style Home

Hi everyone!  This is Lauren from Pure Style Home.  I’m so excited to be a part of Paloma’s My Favorite Room Series!  My favorite room is probably my bedroom.  Like most of us, I love getting in bed.  When we first moved into our house, my bedroom was lined in faux wood paneling and it was a bit dark:

I really craved a white bedroom.  There’s something so relaxing about a white bedroom to me and I never tire of having one.  So… the paneling got the white treatment:   
(That’s my pup, Ashby, in my spot!! 😉 😉
I added a vintage crystal waterfall chandelier and kept the room really simple.  The wall-to-wall builder grade carpet was replaced with wall-to-wall sea grass which I love the feel of.  I layered a hide on the seagrass for a bit of interest and edge.
The vintage mirror (below) is really special to me.  It was one of the first things my husband and I found for our new house.  I love looking at the swirls and seeing shapes in them.

{owls anyone??}
I hung my jewelry on nails for easy access and more importantly, so I can enjoy my things even when I’m not wearing them:
Here’s a picture of my nightstand, below, which is actually a dresser.  (The room isn’t big enough for a large dresser so we went with two small dressers as our nightstands.)  On it, I’ve put my vintage Chinese ginger jar lamp, which I found at a flea market and am crazy about.  My grandmother’s always had these lamps and I loved them growing up.  Thankfully, she’s still alive and is using them all, so I decided I needed my own.
I hung the old convex mirror about the more modern dresser for a bit of juxtaposition.  I found the Gustavian chair years ago at a flea market and my husband found the brass bed (just the headboard!! 😉 😉 on the side of the road just after we moved in!!!
Because I’m always working with colors and fabrics as a part of my job, am constantly switching up things in my own home for fun, and am crazy-busy like most people, my tone on tone bedroom has become my refuge.  I just see white and I can sort of clear my mind and let go of everything when I’m in there, which is exactly what I need.  
I really I hope you enjoyed this little peek into my favorite room and thank you so much to Paloma for inviting me over to La Dolce Vita!!

  1. I love the jewelry on nails. I did that in college but I have been keeping everything in my jewelry box. I think it might be time to break it all out.

  2. Her bedroom is my favorite! Love it! I am currently remodiling ours a bit to look more like this..we bought those bedside tables and LOVE them! Great for more storage! Have a great day!
