Lauren Liess has been a face in the Northern Virginia interior-decorating scene for years.

Now Liess, formerly of Herndon and now of Great Falls, has the opportunity to spread her knowhow nationwide.

Liess and her husband, David, are now the stars of their own television show, “Best Home on the Block.” A pilot episode will air on HGTV — and if the response is good enough, it could become a regular series.

Our pilot show “BEST HOUSE ON THE BLOCK” is airing on @hgtv on Sunday, July 30th @ 2:00 Eastern!!! So excited for a new adventure with @davidliess ! {& baby #5 is due 2 weeks later!!} Tune in to see us design, renovate & decorate a home for our incredibly sweet clients! #besthouseontheblockhgtv #loveyourhabitat #hgtv

Her company, Lauren Liess & Co., was founded in 2010 with the intent to offer stylish full-scale interior design to residents of the D.C. area. She’s worked on clients across the country and many lavish homes in D.C.

Liess also has a blog, Pure Style Home, and an Instagram account with over 50,000 followers. Her rustic style combined with contemporary accents has garnered her a massive following — and the attention of HGTV.

In a blog post last month, Liess said the process to create the show began last spring and filming wrapped up a few months ago.

It was seriously creatively satisfying to get the chance to design, renovate & decorate a home on such a short timeline and we all (especially our clients!!) got a major dose of instant gratification. I used mostly vintage and ready-made furnishings (with a few special custom projects thrown in!) to meet our deadline and it was such a blast.

The pilot will take a different turn from the usual house-flip shows that have dominated HGTV the past few years. Instead, the Liesses plan to follow “underwhelming” houses in the D.C. area and document the renovation process.

“We looked for clients and found a super-sweet couple,” Leiss said in a Facebook Live video announcing the show. “We renovated their house from top to bottom and did it in a really short time period.”

trailer for the show shared by Liess on Facebook shows off blocks of D.C. suburbs crowded with identical homes, while Liess and her husband comment about how they’re all boring and the same. The pair works to deliver a complete renovation on one of them, inside and out.

The pilot episode of “Best Home on the Block” will air Sunday, July 30, at 2 p.m. on HGTV.
