LEANNE FORD is an American interior designer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Ford gained national attention for the 1907 schoolhouse-turned-home that she restored 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.

Leanne's 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. She currently stars in Restored by the Fords on HGTV, along with her brother and contractor Steve Ford, which follows the siblings as they turn some of Pittsburgh’s most dated buildings into magazine-worthy homes.

In February 2020, Leanne unveiled an exclusive partnership with Crate and Barrel, the sole carrier of her first-ever collection of furniture, decor and bedding.

Client Experience
"Worth every penny! She not only affirmed some of my choices, she also gave me new ideas that I never would have thought of myself. Her honesty was much appreciated as she wasn’t afraid to politely say that she disagreed with a couple of my ideas either. Perhaps the most impactful thing she said was not to be afraid to take chances and stand my ground with contractors. Beyond all of her priceless advice and expertise, I left the meeting feeling inspired, empowered and like I had made a new friend"

"Our session with Leanne was an absolute dream. As we near the end of a large renovation, decision fatigue/paralysis has set in but our session with Leanne gave us the boost we needed. She provided thoughtful and specific advice, offered sources for fixtures/paints/furniture we hadn't previously explored and blew us away with how quickly she understood and solved our design snags. I was worried the time allotted wouldn't be enough, but am thrilled with how much we covered. Thank you, Leanne!"

"Leanne is so good. This was the coolest experience. She immediately saw what I couldn't see and totally opened my mind to a new way of looking at my home. She gave me specific product and layout recommendations and also high level creative direction that I can take with me as I move forward on my own. I'm so grateful to Leanne for making herself and her talent accessible to me, and to The Expert for making this possible. One hundred percent recommend!"

"There is wisdom behind every calamity (the pandemic) and this is one of them! Kudos for coming up with this brilliant platform for the Experts to engage virtually anywhere in the world! It opens up new possibilities not considered before. Designing is "therapeutic" in these difficult times. I couldn't ask for a better "therapist" than Leanne Ford. She is a NATURAL!! To sum up "WOW"! She blew me out of the water with her design ideas and created spaces that I didn't know I had. Would do it again!"

"Leanne was so kind & professional in taking time to share ideas for remodeling our 1870 built Farmhouse. She was encouraging and enthusiastic about our project, gave us great ideas and validated lots of what we had been thinking through. Talking us through a plan of what to do was very helpful and she provided many referrals for sources to lean on for various aspects of our project. We look forward to additional conversation when it comes time for furnishings and finishes. Bravo Leanne, thanks!"

"Leanne got my vibe right away and made so many great suggestions for a vastly improved kitchen redesign and also addressed ways to carry the style I wanted throughout my house with specific product and product line recommendations. The conversation was easy, and we covered a lot of ground. I appreciated the explanations for why she made certain recommendations. I so admire all of Leanne's work, so to be able to talk to her "in person" about my house was truly a dream come true."

"This was such a fun experience! We are doing a full home renovation which feels overwhelming. Leanne had so many refreshing ideas and made it easy and effortless to chat. She was able to walk me through concepts that would provide more cohesivity to what we want to do. The shared screen made it easy for us to look at photos and ideas together. This is the perfect, accessible way to get an expert design opinion from home."

"My consultation with Leanne was amazing. She was so helpful. I was struggling with getting a new front door. We live in Florida and we are changing all our windows and front door to Hurricane impact glass. She guided me in my struggle to keep with the aesthetic of the house. She also helped with ideas for our Laundry room remodel and Cabana Bath remodel. I will do a follow-up consultation with her. She also gave me some good suggestions on furniture!"

"Leanne was amazing! She helped me with exactly the design dilemmas I was having and even though we only had 25 minutes we covered a lot of ground. I also think that being prepared on my side was a big reason we could cover a lot in a little amount of time-- I came prepared with a slide show, my specific problems and the issues that needed to be addressed. I am very impressed with Leann's ability to help solve issues and see solutions on the fly. Highly recommend."

"This experience was completely priceless! At first, I was hesitant that an hour would not be enough time but it was pure perfection! Leanne helped my husband and I navigate our remodel with ease and gave us brilliant suggestions to maintain the character of our home and think outside the box. Within the hour we were equipped with a solid plan of action on how to tackle our kitchen and master bathroom! Leanne is a genius and left us feeling inspired on how to achieve our dream home!"

"We purchased a home that needs a full update. We had the concept and basic ideas down but where do we start? With an architect? A GC? A design firm? How do we get our ideas into actionable plans? Leanne walked us through her creative process and everything clicked. The ideas she shared based our design concept for our home were invaluable. We now know where to start and we will be back for more at each design phase! Step one on our journey and we can't wait to work more with Leanne."

"This is my second consultation with Leanne. Both occasions have been fantastic experiences. She is a pleasure to work with and most of all she gives such sage advice! We had a productive second call and certainly untied the knots in my head over many decisions. Her designs are stunning and unique and yet her solutions are very practical, simple and grounded. It does not necessarily have to be costly to achieve the elevated look and that has been my a-Ha moment! Thank you Leanne."

"Had my second consultation with Leanne and it was as helpful as the first. It amazes me how much ground we cover in so short a time frame. Since I am doing a total remodel she has been instrumental in helping me review layouts and guiding me through the entire design process. Today we covered house finishes and local resources. I will be meeting with her again to review and finalize my finish choices. Always a great and rewarding experience!"

"I just finished my mini video consultation with Leanne Ford, it was awesome! We talked through all of the final design decisions that I was struggling with, and Leanne quickly understood my style, my design goals, etc. She suggested paint colors and specific lighting fixtures and we also talked through the biggest challenge I had: my kitchen island and countertops! I am no longer stressing about these decisions, I have a plan! Thank you so much, Leanne! XOXO from Colorado"

"The session with Leanne was a surprise birthday gift for my wife, and she was wonderful. After we got through the star-struck part, we spent the rest of the time discussing and building on ideas about updating an old cottage. We left the hour (too short!) with some really great ideas that we would never have come up without Leanne's help. And we had fun doing it."

"Love Leanne, she nailed it and helped me get back on track. She knew right away there was too much going on and I needed to simplify. Best advice was "write down the inspiration and direction and refer back to it if you forget and don't get distracted." Thank you so much."

"Easily the best money I've spent during our entire renovation! After a year restoring a historic home, I had total design paralysis around furniture, finishes, and how to tie everything together. In under an hour, we were able to cover my entire home. Leanne instinctively understood my vision, offered specific suggestions for products, and even saved me from having to open a wall back up...so really this session paid for itself! I left feeling unstuck and totally inspired. Thank you, Leanne! "
