The wallcovering, inspired by a 16th century ottoman bedcover, is by Katie Leede & Company. The whitewashed fretwork dining chairs from Dennis & Leen, along with the tole palm tree and planter from Maitland-Smith and the striped rug, are nods to the nearby beach.

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.

Today we’re tackling the age old delima… what do I do when I have one room that needs to serve two purposes? How do I go about decorating a combined room?! Technically this could be a living room and dining room, living room and home office, dining room and kitchen… but for this little scenario let’s focus on the whole living room/dining room situation.

Another in the spacey Rumba series, this piece features vivid, multi-colored stripes. The technique of painting one side of a piece of glass and then viewing it from the other effectively brings out the many colors in this otherworldly looking piece. The viewer may be transported to many places in their respective minds as this abstract piece is open to interpretation. It could be the northern lights to some or bring to mind a lava lamp to others. It is definitely a great addition to any modern...

If it’s all one big room and you want t to look like one large space then I would do alll the same curtains. However if you are trying to divide it into two different rooms then different curtains will help with that, divide the space even further with a different rug for each space.
