About Elizabeth

Elizabeth Stuart Faith

“Muffie” is the energy and talent behind Elizabeth Stuart Design. 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.


Over the years

Muffie has expressed her intuitive design sensibility through many mediums, from black and white photography to floral design, to commercial as well as residential design, and fashion retail with Alexander Julian. But her heart has always been in the home, giving living spaces an elegant vitality. For over a decade, Muffie’s well-trained eye has selected a treasured array of home furnishings, fabrics, accessories, artwork, and jewelry to create her thriving retail and interior design boutiques: Elizabeth Stuart Design (ESD). Today, ESD represents a culmination of her creative momentum. From the big city of Houston, Texas to the corner of State and Chalmers on a cobblestone street in Historic Charleston, South Carolina, the boutique has grown and prospered over the years.  ESD is now located on Coleman Boulevard just past Shem Creek from downtown Charleston. ESD is recognized as one of the Southeast’s premier design emporiums, heralded by Southern Accents, Southern Living, HGTV, and Charleston HOME, among others. ESD is your invitation to approachable glamour, livable luxury, and style. Muffie’s ability to find unique pieces and layer sumptuous textures with vibrant color is a gift that brings exuberance and authenticity to interiors. Her joy is sharing this gift with you.
