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!

But perhaps my favorite Leanne Ford project (after this stunning cottage!) to date is her collaboration with Crate and Barrel RIGHT HERE. You can now more easily create a modern rustic luxe look for which she is known.
Can we talk about the spiral staircase to the attic!?!
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).
