Leanne Ford’s Relaxed Work Style

One of the advantages of owning your own creative business is that you can wear whatever you feel your best in during the workweek. Interior designer Leanne Ford, whose beautiful restored farmhouse we shared a tour of yesterday, is someone who enjoys this perk. From off-white denim to antique cotton dresses, whether she’s on a job in Pittsburgh or Los Angeles, her workwear style is easy and effortless. Of course, when Leanne is really getting her hands dirty slightly more rugged pieces are required. Oversized T-shirts, workwear layers, and hard-wearing blue jeans are among her go-tos for install days, for example. 

When I asked Leanne to pick out a few pieces from my camping-inspired Summer 2017 collection, she pulled a mix of delicate and durable items in relaxed fits that suit her laid-back personality. I love the looks she put together—especially against the backdrop of her beautiful, all-white home! XXJKE
