Margarita Posth-Panasci

Margarita has been part of the panasci + associates team
for the last 15 years.

She has worked on projects both residential and commercial from various stages of concept to completion.

Margarita holds a degree from the University of San Francisco in International Business and Marketing and continued her studies in Interior Design at UC Berkeley. She speaks Spanish and French fluently and has always found language to be a great bridge and meeting people in fulfilling her love for travel and design.

She spent most of her young life living in Peru and Argentina absorbing the highly valued traditions of the handcrafted product. Whether it was her Mom weaving a colorful bright wall-installation, her Aunt discovering new pieces for her antique gallery + home or her Uncle designing mid-century furniture in his steel factory, their design influences have all contributed to a deep respect for the craftsman who puts their heart and soul into the design and creative vision which is produced and shared.

Margarita's love for color comes from her families Peruvian roots where color is a celebration of life and ones surroundings. Her desire is to create a positive, happy, clean and artful space that makes a client ask for more.

She loves yoga, antique and estate treasure hunting, seeing a great play, her Westie, Daisy, volunteering and taking long walks at the beach.
