Hi there…..and how was your Memorial Day weekend? Ours was not quite what we had planned, soggy weather and 50 degrees kept us from going away the first two days, so we stuck around and had dinner with friends, went on a friends boat, went to a winery and charming east end town when the weather finally cleared so it ended up being a lot of fun…even managed some down time around the house which is always a welcome treat.

Every now and then, a favorite designer of mine warrants a second post on his/her work. Leta, as she is known to me is one such designer. I am a huge huge fan of her timeless classic style, and having had a three hour phone conversation with her……..I can say with authority that beyond her talent,  she is a gem of a person and as kind, witty and full of life as they come. I see she has added some beautiful new rooms to her gorgeous portfolio so thought it was all worth sharing, I am certain you will agree! With offices in New York and Palm Beach, Leta travels all over the U.S. and turns houses into beautiful homes bearing the “Leta touch”.

She is probably one of the designers who most closely matches my own style and tastes, Cathy Kincaid would be another. Leta’s talents are the kind that would allow me to hand over an empty house to her and never look back. She is that good. Check it out and decide for yourself……..

Adore everything about this!

Major swoon!

Love the softness, the fabrics and the way this feels like landing on a cloud…….
Closer up, how pretty is that fabric!

She uses checks brilliantly!

Aren’t her bedrooms dreamy? And what about the window treatments? She is a total master….love her liberal use of blue, the gorgeous wallpapers she has a finesse in choosing and the way her rooms have such a timeless, serene and soothing feeling. Leta, you are one talented dynamo! Have a favorite Leta room? Do tell! Click here to visit and learn more about the uber talented Leta Austin Foster. Wishing everyone a fabulous day…….

Her work is beautiful and I can see why you like her – all her rooms look like something you have shown us in your gorgeous home.

Wasn’t yesterday a perfectly beautiful day to be out on the water? It made up for the icky weather the rest of the weekend!

Have a lovely day! xoxo

I can see why you love her work, its gorgeous. I love the color schemes, and not a single chevron, poof or antler in sight- now that is refresing. Classic decor wins hands down for me everytime!

Tina- my husbands partners parents (who live in Palm Beach) used Leta’s firm for their gorgeous home and where a beautiful wedding was held and all I can say is I never forgot her name because I was so enthralled with her sensational work. The home is a masterpiece! Beautiful post, she also has a shop in PB which I have been to a few times, it is lovely and a wonderful collection much like yours that reflects her elegant taste.

Sounds like you made the best of a soggy weekend!!! We took advantage of the down time (yay….no sports!) and then hit the beach on Monday! It was truly relaxing!

LOVE Leta’s work. Every room looks like one I could see myself in. She just gets is ALL right, doesn’t she?!!!

Today feels like a summer set back again, but I know it’s on its way. Here’s to sunnier days ahead!

Her work is timeless! She was one of my most favorite “Wednesday What If’s” post that i did! Y’all could be two peas in a pod! Glad you ended up enjoying your weekend! I tend to be envious of the 50 degree thing! We sweated our brains out at the beach! It was almost 90! Go figure! But…it was fun and we were able to swim and cool off, etc….Can’t wait to get back on a routine though!

Beautiful rooms – a clever mix of English and French to me, but very serene and gentle interiors.

Lovely decor Tina. The dark pieces look stunning with the neutrals. ALL white, with blue and white, and dark wood is my favorite combination. I’ll be book marking this post or design ideas!

Glad you had a nice weekend and it sounds like we had similar weather. It’s been raining so much and I’m getting tired of it :{ All this water and the mild temps are encouraging nonstop plant growth which will require LOTS of work cutting everything back and a my potted plants are swimming …..
