designer Leanne Ford's L.A. home via domino. / sfgirlbybay

this is fabulous home of Los Angeles–based interior designer Leanne Ford featured recently on domino and photographed beautifully by one of my favorites, nicole franzen. her 1945 farmhouse is a white-washed dream and filled to the brim with an enviable stash of vintage collectibles. after seeing this space, i was not only inspired to hit the flea market this weekend seeking my own treasures, but was also happy to hear she has a new HGTV series Restored by the Fords, where leanne and her carpenter brother steve restore some of Pittsburgh’s out of the ordinary and unconventional homes into the coolest houses on the block. sounds right up my alley!

  1. Would enjoy helping with the show. 30 years in PIttsburgh now splitting time between The Burgh and Las Vegas. Took this home from a run down 5 unit apartment mess to what you see here. My girlfriend, now wife, was a monumental help in the last 5 years. I am not a general contractor but learned an incrdible amount in 14 years. Professionally I know marketing and creative, as well, the Pittsburgh market, Victorians, what it takes to renovate a victorian (From scratch), the surprises, the pitfalls, and the rewards. Renoavated a smaller victorian in Friendship and a condo in Shadyside as well. Check out this link on Zillow and let me know if I could be of any help to you on the show. Great show BTW! Keep up the good work…John Carpenter http://www.zillow.com/homes/for_sale/11620587_zpid/40.477145,-79.916992,40.47506,-79.921053_rect/17_zm/?view=public
