Designer Melanie Foster Fills a Manhattan Pied-à-Terre with Color and Shape

Melanie Foster’s collaboration with her client began with a few sniffs, barks and some tail wagging. “We were both walking our dogs in the same Greenwich nature preserve as we do every day, and we literally bumped into each other,” says Foster. “I’ve made many friends in the woods over the years, and I could tell right away that Melanie and I were kindred spirits,” recalls Foster’s eventual client, a woman who lives with her husband in Greenwich, but who also owns a weekend pied-a-terre in Manhattan. “Dog people are friendly.”

She grew up in a European-style hunting lodge her mother, Beverly, the founder of Beverly Ellsley Designs, had restored in the mid ’70s. “I love log homes,” she says. “It was a big nut to take, but who else was going to save it?”
