HGTV DEBUTS NEW SERIES 'RESTORED BY THE FORDS' STARRING SIBLINGS
LEANNE AND STEVE FORD ON TUESDAY, JAN. 2, AT 10 P.M. ET/PT
New York [Dec. 5, 2017] Siblings Leanne and Steve Ford will enliven older Pittsburgh-area homes with beautiful and unique custom designs in HGTV's new series Restored by the Fords. Premiering Tuesday, Jan. 2, at 10 p.m. ET/PT, the series 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her brother Steve, a licensed contractor and renovator, executes her vision to maximize the charm and functionality of outdated properties.
"We specialize 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 Leanne and Steve know how to gain more room for them without adding square footage. The duo will reimagine the home's floor plan to create the family's dream home. The Fords move walls, rearrange rooms and add modern touches, including a new galley kitchen that runs the length of the home and a new master suite on the main floor with a stunning bath, all to 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 breathtaking results that delight our clients," added Leanne.
