Some of my favorite interiors successfully blend the old with the new. Los Angeles designer Margaret Weitzman does a fine job of doing just that! She has carefully curated her own Pacific Palisades home with with antique pieces paired with flea market finds. The result is stunning.

In my own house, I can mix every single era…and my couches don’t match. It’s eclectic but sensible. I care as much about how the space works as how it looks.  — Margaret Weitzman

Above the great room’s marble fireplace, Weitzman hung vintage mercury plates that she found in a Hancock Park consignment shop to reflect light throughout, where mismatched custom upholstered sofas keep company with an original George Nakashima desk that was a Mother’s Day gift from her husband years ago. The rug is a family heirloom that belonged to her mother.

In the kitchen, a cabinet painted in Benjamin Moore Chatsworth Cream houses a mix of English stoneware dishes and Johnson Brothers blue-and-white china. The metal pedestals supporting the kitchen table were found on the streets of Paris, and Weitzman designed the top.Nautical paintings by Tony de los Reyes hang above Margaret Weitzman’s collection of colorful Peking glass vessels.
