Inside the European, Pop Art-Inspired Boutique of Elisabeth Weinstock
With A-list celebrity fans including Rihanna, Jennifer Aniston, and Elton John, Elisabeth Weinstock's three lines of luxury accessories have just as fabulous of a home as you would expect. "I call this a modern-day heritage brand," Weinstock describes. "It caters to men, women, and the home, which isn't typical for a new brand." In order to fully convey the whimsical elegance her line projects, Weinstock sought to design her Los Angeles flagship boutique in the same vein. "There's a large attention to detail in everyday luxury items," she describes, in referring to both her lines and interior designs. With this in mind, Weinstein has created a stylish space that is both edgy and elegant, just like her products.
Weinstock, an interior designer with a decade of experience who still works with private clients, designed the boutique herself. Inspired by the occasional whimsy of Parisian architecture and decor, as well as manicured English gardens, Weinstock used these European aesthetics as the jumping off point for the both the interior and exterior of the boutique. A fully bespoke design, all upholstery, case pieces, and tables were designed by Weinstock, with vintage and Indian light fixtures layered in.

One of the first homes on LA's 3rd Street, the store is located in a structure that was built in the early 1900s. Weinstock decided to capitalize on the already divided spaces by showcasing each of her three collections in a different room, in order to fully convey the differences between the lines through a variety of interior styles. The home's dining room is a bonus area which displays pop art and tableware during the day, while getting back to it's original roots to host private dinner parties in the evenings.

Hand painted by artist Brett Hammond, the compass star in the middle of the store's living room floor is one of the designer's favorites. "Each of the points leads you to one of the other rooms," she shares. Another striking focal point is "Pierre," the taxidermy peacock Weinstock displays atop the fireplace mantle. "My theory is that everything that we do or see should be done in a luxurious way, making the ordinary extraordinary," she says. Who could disagree?
