On the Season 2 premiere of Restored by the Fords, the brother-sister duo updated Laura and Ben's craftsman home. This project was especially important to the Fords, because Leanne grew up with Laura — they even played on the same lacrosse team!
When Leanne and Steve went to open up the walls, they found brick. In what Leanne referred to as a 'power move', they reduced the fireplace down to brick and completely opened up the space, allowing natural light from the den to pour in.
With a little wall removal, the kitchen feels much bigger and now flows seamlessly into the dining area.
Teal definitely isn't Leanne's go-to color for the kitchen — or anywhere for that matter. She recently revealed on Instagram that the client requested the color so they made it work! And indeed it works well! See Leanne's Instagram for more on this project.
