A Welcoming Foyer
It’s that time of year when we tend to have guests flowing through our front doors­—so we asked Muffie Faith, owner of Elizabeth Stuart Design, to dream up the accoutrements for a welcoming foyer. “I love mixing antiques with a few things that are simple and new for a quiet, sophisticated hello,” she says. Here’s her cozy design, perfect for ushering visitors in out of the cold
