Inspired by the lush landscape just outside the windows (which were salvaged from an old train depot!), the homeowner of this 105-year-old Victorian farmhouse filled the dining room with rustic wood elements and pops of green. The Beech wishbone chairs, which are lacquered in an apple green, pop against the large antique hutch that stores the homeowner's collection of copper Moscow mule mugs and green and white china. A pale pink Oriental rug with subtle hints of sky blue and chartreuse rounds out the mix.
Painting of two pieces of fruit hanging from a branch with textured abstract background. Primary colors in this artwork include: Orange, Dark Gray, Gray. This proprietary canvas provides a classic and distinctive texture, while archival UV protectant inks make it scratch and fade resistant. The fabric base is flexible to support tight corners. The finished canvas print is mounted on a sturdy yet lightweight board to protect against warping, overstretching, or loose, sagging prints. It is then...

Leta Foster has spent the last 35 years designing interiors so well that her three daughters followed in her footsteps, becoming the "& Associates" in her firm. When this breakfast room project in an early-1900s Richmond home came to Leta, she tapped daughter Sallie Giordano to collaborate. Together, they decorated the space to fit a young family while honoring its original architect, William Bottomley.

I love fresh flowers, but I don’t love spending a fortune on them. Our Trader Joe’s sells seeded eucalyptus for $2.99 a bunch and hydrangeas for $5.99 a bunch. I think the roses were a little more expensive at $9.99, but you can see how many I was able to buy at that price! If you don’t have access to a Trader Joe’s near you, check out your local grocery store for floral options. They tend to have beautiful blooms for a fraction of the price of floral shops. Walmart is also a great option. The potted pink hyacinth in the background is from Walmart and was only $5!

Covered my grandmothers 4 dining room chairs perfectly! Great fit and updated a 60 year old family dining room set. Will need to line the the back of chairs because when the light hits the chair you can see through the fabric, but that is easy fix! Love them! Was totally surprised. (the 2 end chairs have arms, so bought set of 6, and will cut the fabric of the 2 extra covers and cover the bottom insert so those chairs will "match")
