In HGTV’s new US series Restored by the Fords siblings Leanne and Steve Ford will enliven older Pittsburgh-area homes with beautiful and unique custom designs.
Premiering on Tuesday 2 January, the show follows Leanne, an interior designer, as she creates a new look and floor plan for homes, while her brother Steve, a licensed contractor and renovator, executes her vision to maximise the charm and functionality of outdated properties.
“We specialise in taking quirky homes with odd layouts and turning them into the coolest and most contemporary places in town,” said Leanne.
In the premiere episode, the Brock family says they want more space, but the Fords know how to gain more room for them without adding square footage. The duo reimagine the home’s floor plan to create the family’s dream home, moving walls, rearranging rooms and adding modern touches to do it. Renovations include a new galley kitchen that runs the length of the home and a new master suite on the main floor with a stunning bath, which all give the Brock’s home a chic, updated look that they never imagined.
“Each project we do together is an adventure, “said Steve.
“Because we’re family, we feel comfortable pushing each other to new limits to get the most out of each design, and we know when to bring one another back to earth to achieve breath-taking results that delight our clients,” added Leanne.
