Image result for restored by the fordsHave you seen the HGTV series RESTORED BY THE FORDS yet starring interior designer Leanne Ford and her brother, contractor Steve Ford? I’m so happy it has been renewed for another season!

Here’s how People described the design show:

“RESTORED BY THE FORDS follows siblings Leanne and Steve Ford as they make over outdated houses in Pittsburgh, PA. Although integrating clean, modern looks for local families is certainly a plus, Leanne, the designer, and Steve, the contractor, are in it for more than just the pretty “After” photos.”

“These beautiful old homes, a lot of times are torn down or the character is ripped out of them. For me I think, however we can keep them alive and give them new life is what we’re aiming to do.”

“As for their favorite part of their new day job, Steve says it’s ‘when I forget what it used to look like and it becomes something new. There’s a point where walls are torn down and we see what’s about to happen.’”

Leanne Ford’s background includes fashion styling and creative directing. The interior designer first gained national attention when she restored and designed a turn-of-the-century schoolhouse in her hometown (Pittsburgh). Today, Leanne’s designs can be found in homes across the country and reflect what she describes as her signature “modern yet lived-in” aesthetic.

Steve is a licensed contractor who tackles unconventional construction challenges that bring his sister’s unique vision to life. His portfolio includes store and restaurant design, displays and set design for national retail brands, residential renovations, as well as the restoration of a corporate headquarters. Steve Ford has pursued outdoor sports like skiing and snowboarding and now gives private wake surfing lessons.
Fans of Leanne Ford have been letting me know they want to see more of her work on the blog so I am all too happy to oblige…this time around with a focus on white on white designs. (BTW, Leanne is totally rock n roll, and so am I at this very moment…I’m blogging in a big ol’ SUV with girlfriends on a roadtrip from the heartland out West – we visited Denver then motored on to the Grand Canyon before we picked up a few more friends in Arizona and traveled to San Diego. We’re now on our way home, tired high, sleep deprived, and sufficiently sugared up and caffeinated as we reflect on all the crazy lovely memories made and sing to a playlist of songs from our adolescence. In other words, I have had the BEST BEST time with ladies who bring so much light, love, and laughter into my world. We’ll never forget this road trip!)

    Oh my what absolutely lovely rooms! For someone like me who’s a white on white lover, I’m so comforted by the fact that these spaces carry their own weight without that so-called “pop of color”. Yes, sometimes white rooms need a little color to make them work. But when done right, (i.e. with wonderful texture, furniture places, et al) white rooms truly are complete in their white on white design…..

    And when white rooms “work”, a pop of color would ruin it, at least for me. 😉

      oops…. I meant to write ‘furniture placement’…..I hit send too soon. 😉

      I think I know what you mean when a pop of color disturbs the tone on tone calm and flow of certain spaces. Let there be white! 🙂
