Leanne Ford, the interior designer behind the HGTV home renovation show “Restored by the Fords,” is joining her passion for color and design with paint and color expertise from PPG. Kicking off her color collaboration with PPG, Ford handpicked three colors in her signature hue: white. These selections can offer inspiration and reassurance to homeowners trying to select the right shades of color for their homes.
Natural White & The Bohemian Palette
Mixing is more important than matching in the bohemian palette, which represents a real sense of artistry in the color selection. Natural White (50YY 83/029) offers a non-competing background or anchor color in a bohemian-inspired room where Hispanic and Asian influences can also be seen in tightly packed patterns on textiles, artisanal weaving or mosaics. The warm colors in this palette together create a richness in self expression.
Pure White & The Modern Palette
With Pure White, PPG Timeless® Out-of-the-Can White, as a dominant color, this palette evokes a sense of calm, silence and space in a very cluttered and distracted world. Colors like black, navy and gunmetal act as anchors to give the room weight and a modern flair, while softer khaki and rose pink accent colors add lightness and breathe a more fresh feeling into the palette.
White on White & The Cool, Earthy Palette
The cool, earthy palette exudes a natural feeling and leans on White on White (30GY 88/014) to create a contrast, providing visual relief to the bolder, deeper hues. This palette goes beyond just the appearance of nature to convey how each element makes us feel, from earth to ocean to sky.
