It isn’t often that an interior designer’s home pops up on the local market, so when we saw that Lauren Liess‘s stunning Great Falls home was for sale, we had to share it with you.

Along with her husband David, Liess is the owner of Lauren Liess & Co. and Lauren Liess Textiles, and her family has occupied the home–which Liess renovated and decorated–for the past three years.

Liess describes it as approximately 2,400 square feet, with three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths.

The home, which was featured in Domino magazine, boasts a kitchen with luxe custom open-shelving, a cozy dining room with a wood-panelled ceiling, and a loft (pictured above) that serves as both an office and a library. The family added several windows to the kitchen (below) to let in more natural light. The piece de resistance, however, is the wood-beamed family room (below) that looks out into the surrounding yard.

Long, low-slung, and elegant, the exterior is black cedar, but as Liess writes, the inside is still “light and airy yet warm.” Large banks of windows mean nearly every room has a view of greenery and foliage. And a roomy back patio, accessed by several sets of doors, makes indoor-outdoor entertaining an option. If you’re in the market for something contemporary, yet classic, and roomy but with abundant charm, we suggest you run on over to the open house hosted Saturday, August 1, from 1-4 p.m. Paige McLaughlin represents the Liess family.
