getting to show @dianabraunpointofview listing in #echopark all week has been the best part of the days 🌟 @leannefordinteriors has made her home ooze with character from top to bottom - the ultimate cozy chic cottage 💛
2 bed | 1 bath | 1,236 sqft
This vintage cabin is reputed to be the first home built in Echo Park and was once owned by silent film star Clara Kimball Young. Situated on an 8,433 sqft lot, the woodsy cottage has been beautifully restored by owner and designer, Leanne Ford, where she has created the ultimate indoor/outdoor living space connecting rustic textures like stone floors and exposed wood plus adding french doors in the back that open to a beautiful stone patio and the surrounding nature. The details to this home are truly charismatic and maintain that chalet charm throughout each room. The cozy living room features a stone hearth plus a Midcentury Malm fireplace, and original wood borders large windows in the dining area. The kitchen has a Smeg refrigerator, open shelving, and an old sink brought in from Pittsburgh. The original tub was kept in the bathroom with new plumbing, made to look old, and the entire cabin is painted a warm white and exploding with character. Truly a hidden gem in a quaint area!

Yesterday’s #EchoPark#OpenHouse for #thelittlecabininthebigcity was really fun to watch via Instagram! It was like we were throwing a rager but weren’t invited to our own party. But hey, I’m glad YA’LL had fun!! It was quite the success thanks to @dianabraunpointofview! If you still want to see it find her! But for now, #GoodNightMoon. ❤️ // #LeanneFordInteriors shot by @tessaneustadt for @nytimes (#bed made perfect by the talented @bradytolbert)
Let me tell you the story about #thelittlecabininthebigcity. Over two years ago this was being sold as a #teardown. The large 8000 sq ft lot was worth more than the old #cabin sitting on it. This is rumored to be the first known house in #EchoPark originally built by the silent #moviestar#ClaraKimballYoung. It was then owned for over 70 years by an older blind woman, Alda, who loved this house and donated it to the Braille Institute after she passed away. I was walking through it feeling this amazing energy about the life this cabin had lived (not to mention that #tree...) I could hear another potential buyer talking to the seller about how great and flat the lot was and how he was going to tear it down and build a fancy massive new #house on it. My heart was pretty much breaking. I turned to my then boyfriend (now husband 🙌🏼) and said, “I HAVE to save this house.” So that’s exactly what I did. The question is, who’s going to take care of it now? // #OpenHouse starts at 2. Info and link in bio. // #LeanneFordInteriors shot by @tessaneustadt for @nytimes
Love this quote by @leannefordinteriors 👏🏻⠀
Whether in life or in design, greatness comes from getting outside your comfort zone! ⠀
Who are you making nervous? Your clients? Your mom? Yourself? ⠀
Wellllll... it’s official... #thelittlecabininthebigcity is officially #onthemarket! After much deliberation and thankfully no tears we’ve decided to sell our little #echopark#loveshack. After we found out about the sweet bun in the oven we realized this place is much more #WINE bottles than BABY bottles style. So it’s time to pass it on!! Who’s the lucky buyer? ... And can we come over for dinner? Check out the listing link on my bio! Contact our friend @dianabraunpointofview // #LeanneFordInteriors shot by @tessaneustadt for @nytimes
This is a never-before-seen photo of a powder room created by the fab @leannefordinteriors !! That’s because I shot this gorgeous Italian marble sink on an antique pine table while doing some consulting work for Leanne’s client, the lovely, @carovanhove The reason I’m sharing this beauty now with you is to (1)tell you that you really need to follow the talented Leanne (2) You need to watch her second season of @restoredbythefords when it airs (3) You need to check her stories today for a very, very exciting announcement she has!!!! 🖤

Go with the flow! The #water#element is ESPECIALLY easy in the bathroom, ya know what I mean... even just the sound of the #bathtub filling up feels so good for my little soul. But that water element doesn't just come out of the faucet, it's actually represented in #reflective surfaces, such as pretty #mirrors. Of course, through all of the elements, if you're a little #waterbaby like me, this one's probably your favorite too! #LeanneFordInteriors for @Target shot by @reidrolls
The winning medal goes to #Metal! // The #metal#element of #FengShui helps your logic and mental clarity. (Yes please...) also crazy enough did you know that you can make your space more #tranquil by adding curved lines and shapes. Then when the curved space is metal... I’m gonna be so darn #zen I won’t know what to with myself. 😉 // #LeanneFordInteriors shot by @reidrolls for @Target
Get grounded! One of my favorite elements is #earth! Bring in some plants (don't be afraid to mix real and faux together.) The earth element will help your space feel #grounded and #balanced. Also, I say BRING ON the #earthtones! #TerraCotta anyone?! Put them everywhere! (On a personal note: someday I WILL have Terracotta floors... someday...!) #LeanneFordInteriors for @Target shot by @ReidRolls
