Elizabeth Stuart, known as “Muffie” by friends, is the energy and talent behind Elizabeth Stuart Design and ESD. She is a woman of passion as diverse as her style. She is a mother and devoted friend. A tireless traveler, she has found her niche in discovering and exploring unlikely corners of the world. A self-professed “flea market junkie,” her style spans from Bohemian to the refined.
Muffie’s creative inspiration comes from the small, real moments of an on-the-go life. With an eye for design, she pays close attention to detail while honing in on objects and fabrics rich in color and story. Her sophisticated eye and bold, smart aesthetic were nurtured from the beginning as a child growing up surrounded by her father’s art collection and her mother’s garden menagerie.
A passion that has driven her since early childhood, Muffie has carried this in her work. “I was the one in my family constantly changing around my room. Large splays of pink dogwood became floral ‘sconces’ on the wall. I always went for what was a little off the edge,” says Muffie.
