New Traditional Designers: Leta Austin Foster and her Stylish Gals

Leta Austin Foster has been designing elegant interiors for over thirty years and has raised three impressive daughters, all talented designers in their own right:  Sallie Giordano, India Foster and  Elizabeth Dinkel.  Ms. Giordano and Ms. Foster work with their mother in New York and Palm beach respectively, while Elizabeth Dinkel has her own firm in LA.  

Leta Austin Foster also has a lovely boutique in Palm Beach as well as space at 96 Forest in Locust Valley, where I was introduced to the work of Ms. Giordano.  When I googled her I came across two great blog posts  at All the Best Blog and StyleBeat.   These articles inspired me to research these incredibly talented women and share their work with you.   Like their inspiring mother, all three daughters lean to the new traditional side of things, but each has their own distinct style.  Here are some pictures to give you a flavor of their styles:
