Leanne Ford Paint Colors in the Sweetest Country Cottage!

One of my favorite projects by designer Leanne Ford is this renovation (with her brother Steve Ford) of a sweet country guest cottage. I saved these screenshots from the RESTORED BY THE FORDS episode for future reference and thought you might enjoy them for inspiration. Leanne generously shared the PPG paint colors she used to create the backdrop for this humble, historic, lovely project. Steal Leanne Ford Paint Colors in the Sweetest Country Cottage!

I’m also weaving in inspirational quotes from my favorite Irish poet, the late John O’Donohue. As I was typing the words to create them, there were moments I clutched my heart (as the soulful truth and gold of his impressions struck me so deeply).

    I love the staircase! The colors are gorgeous in the house, it looks fresh but also true to the style. The absence of curtains and blinds lets in a ton of light through the windows. Very minimalistic but still styled, I love it.

    Leanne is my favorite designer and I especially loved the episodes of the sweet cottage and Steve’s warehouse/home. She has an effortless style with the ability to put together amazing vignettes and blend a mix of modern and contemporary with rustic and worn…. and it looks superb!
