Leta Austin Foster
Leta Austin Foster founded her interior design firm over thirty five years ago. Guided by years of experience and an exceptional range of styles, she has always followed her mantra to “never do the same job twice.” Her company has become one of the well established design firms of the East coast, with a range of clients and project locations. She has worked on jobs from contemporary to traditional, from a sleek Manhattan townhouse to a 19th century mansion in Northern California to a colonial, Bahamian island house on the beach in Florida. Working always to keep design schemes grounded within their environments and in tune with the client’s vision, Leta has established herself as a leading talent in the interior design world and has been lauded by House and Garden as one of "100 Greatest American Interior Decorators". Her work is published in Veranda, Elle Décor, Coastal Living, Texas Homes, Stylebeat.com, House and Garden, Palm Beach Life and Allthebest.com. She was most recently included by House Beautiful as one of the 20th century's most influential interior designers.
India joined the Palm Beach office of Leta Austin Foster in 2006. India received her Baccalaureate from Franklin College in Switzerland in Modern European Literature and Modern History. After working for Fox Television in New Zealand and Los Angeles, she studied interior architecture at UC Berkeley and started her design career working at the San Francisco interior design firm, Tedrick & Bennett. The youngest in the firm, she has a fresh, eclectic approach to interiors. Comfortable, livable environments punctuated with individuality are her hallmark. Stimulated by traditional decoration and new concepts, India relentlessly travels the world in search of inspiration. Her projects have ranged from a modern house in Lima, Peru to lake house in Harbor Springs, to a bungalow in Palm Beach, to a farmhouse in Aiken, to a Park Avenue apartment, to a Victorian mansion in Marin. Her work has been featured in Traditional Home, the Miami Herald and Verandah.
