Yay! It’s more Leanne Ford interior design magic today and specifically, we’ll explore the WHITE PAINT she favors for all those gorgeous white on white interiors she designs for clients and on HGTV’s RESTORED BY THE FORDS. I recently wrote an article about choosing the BEST WHITE paint for your rooms, and I hope you will find those picks helpful along with Leanne’s favorite white.

Even though I could spend all day singing the praises of white paint, we’ll do more than that today. We’ll also explore Leanne Ford’s favored home decor and furniture items. It’s clear she loves her some Mid-Century Modern design, vintage style, luxurious minimalism, quirky fleamarket finds, and custom pieces she dreams up. I found many of these home decor picks thanks to Domino who featured her farmhouse in the magazine last spring. (Ummm. Who ISN’T featuring Leanne Ford in their magazine? I have lost count!)

Let’s not waste another second on chatter since I know you are dying to know WHICH WHITE PAINT Leanne loves…

Behr’s Ultra Pure White.

Leanne’s white paint pick is a lot like mine (Benjamin Moore ‘white’) since it is the base color with which other whites are mixed! Yep. How easy is simply pulling a gallon off the shelf without tinting!?!

Leanne Ford Bio: Leanne Ford Interiors

Leanne Ford is an Interior Designer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Ford gained national attention for the 1907 schoolhouse turned home that she gutted and designed in her hometown. It was this first personal project where she established the “white on white” signature aesthetic she’s now known for. Featured in Country Living magazine, the house launched her career as an interior designer, leading to projects in Pennsylvania, New York, and Los Angeles, each a reflection of her modern yet lived-in aesthetic.

Ford’s easy vibe and personal style match the stylish yet approachable spaces she creates and curates. Her work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Country Living, Domino, GQ, Lonny, Elle Decor, Martha Stewart, Better Homes and Gardens, Redbook, MyDomaine, Refinery 29, the New York Times, and more; her bathroom design has been featured on the cover of Bright Bazaar’s latest interiors book, Dream Decor. She is currently the star, along with her brother and contractor Steve Ford, of Restored by the Fords on HGTV, which follows the siblings as they turn some of Pittsburgh’s most dated buildings into magazine-worthy homes.
