Growing up, Ingrid spent many weekends on the hunt for fine furniture and art with her Scandinavian parents - highly creative DIYers. This early ’training’ expresses itself in a keen eye for form and detail and a sure hand in space planning and function.
A BFA led to gallery work before Ingrid made the natural leap into magazine editorial, working for Martha Stewart Living, Country Living, Traditional Home, Oprah, HGTV and This Old House.
Before co-founding Leonard + Leess Design, Ingrid’s recent work in Connecticut, California, New York, Florida and the USVI has focused on interior design for private + commercial clients. Known for design problem-solving at any scale, Ingrid brings a point-of-view, sensibility, a thoughtful approach to longevity-- all to provide clients with timeless, livable interiors.
