How To Achieve Serenity In An L.A. Pad

It really shouldn't come as a shock that LE CATCH creator Marlien Rentmeester's Pacific Palisades home is the best we've found in the 'hood. Actually, the only thing that surprised us was that the forward-thinking, design-obsessed founder of one of our favorite style-hunting sites would have such a yen for old-school interiors. We mean, her living room reminded us of a 1950s high-society parlor! But, as we talked decor, inspiration, and more during a recent house tour, it occurred to us that the power-blogger is actually a pretty classic, classy sort of lady.
While she contends that the home she shares with her husband and two sons is beset by the kind of messes only young boys could make, we found it to be a perfectly curated, perfectly immaculate mix of old treasures; inexpensive, new Target accents; and an unending supply of amazing photography. There's nothing wrong with being a bit old school when you do it this well.
