I’m sure a lot of you are fans of blogger/designer/author Lauren Liess like I am, so I wanted to make sure you knew about her new show.
The pilot for “Best House on the Block” is set to premiere on HGTV July 30 at 2:00, and then to replay on Thursday, August 17, at 1:00 p.m. EST, so set your alarms or DVRs if you don’t want to miss it!
“The Best House on the Block”
Lauren explains: “Best House on the Block” will follow me & my husband, David, (who’s the project manager in our interior design business) as we redo ‘typical’ houses in the VA-MD-DC area, turning them into unique & special homes completely tailored to the clients who live in them. The process entails designing, renovating and decorating, which I’m so excited about.
“We’ve filmed one pilot episode and my understanding is that it will air a couple of times, and depending upon how it’s received/ how many viewers it gets, HGTV will determine if it goes to a full season.”
It’ll be nice to see some houses in a different part of the country than are typically featured on HGTV. And I think a lot of us can relate to the frustration of living in a neighborhood where the houses all look like clones of each other.
Two years ago I featured the amazing makeover she gave her own house:

Since then she’s written a popular design book called Habitat:
Will you be watching? Best of luck to Lauren and David — I hope it finds an audience on HGTV!
