Though you may not know Leanne Ford by name (yet), you almost certainly know her work—we'd wager that the interior designer's immaculate projects are plastered across your "dream home" Pinterest board. What's more, she and Steve Ford, her brother, just got their own HGTV show, Restored by the Fords, tackling a modest Pittsburgh home built by Don Owens, who studied under Frank Lloyd Wright, as one of their first projects.
While we've already unveiled the refurbished living room, kitchen, and dining room of the midcentury residence, Ford recently shared photos of the beyond-stunning master bathroom, kids bathroom, and indoor pool with MyDomaine. Scroll through the gallery to tour the space and get the lowdown on Ford's design process.
"I was excited to try out the concept of the bathroom island in this project. Just because we were updating this house didn't mean we had to take all the fun out of it."
"I wanted to add design and character back in where we lost vintage character. It really created the feeling of a spa in their master."
Ford added a mirror to reflect light and create the illusion of space.
"We used concrete skim coat on the walls and created an entirely waterproof wet room."
"Notice the fun rope door pulls here—to 'tie' in the rope railings in from the entry."
"In the kids' bathroom, we created a budget-friendly design on the drop-in tub by using the same tile in multiple colors to create a fun design."
"[This was an] easy install and [added] a fun little bit of oomph!"
"This indoor pool is visually connected to the rest of the home, so I couldn't not continue the color story in this space—cremes, whites, and hints of black. By painting the pool glossy black, we modernized a very dated (though still fun) kidney-shaped pool."
"Since we couldn't wire electrical over the pool, instead we filled the ceiling with different sizes of paper lanterns. The cluster of paper lanterns softened the space and hard lines of the rest of the room. It also created a beautiful reflection in the dark pool."
