The Well-Traveled Home by Sandra Espinet!

by Ruben on February 5, 2014

If you love to travel and love interior design, this book is perfect for you!

Sandra Espinet is probably one of the most well-traveled people I know. Her interior work is a great representation of the exotic places she’s been. Sandy’s first book “The Well-Traveled Home” has now become one of my favorite interior design books, it happens to be on top of my coffee table at home! Every page and every image is beautifully photographed to capture the feeling of actually being inside Sandy’s interiors. I joke that Sandy’s book should also be titled “The Well-Photographed Home” Ha!

You may purchase “The Well-Traveled Home” on Amazon by clicking here.

I can't get my hands off of it! Showing off my new book!


Gracias Sandy...besos! Gracias Sandy…besos! One of my favorite interiors by Sandra Espinet! One of my favorite interiors by Sandra Espinet!



Custom Furniture in the Making!

by Ruben on October 23, 2013

Everyday I’m pulling tear sheets and drawing custom furniture pieces for client projects. Once the custom items are quoted and signed off by the client, production starts!

I love the opportunity of visiting my resource’s factory to see how the custom pieces are actually made. The experience to see all this production behind the scenes is quite exciting to me. When my clients are spending large amounts of money on custom furniture, it is my job to make sure it is done perfectly right.

Here’s a glimpse of one of my recent factory visits, enjoy!

ASID 27th Annual Home & Kitchen Tour

by Ruben on September 9, 2013

Hi Everyone!

Every year in Pasadena we have a Home & Kitchen Tour hosted by The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). It is a self-guided tour of four homes designed by distinguished interior designers within the Pasadena Chapter of ASID.

I’m proud to say one of our projects at Jennifer Bevan Interiors will be featured on this tour! This custom home was built in 2010 in a soft contemporary style that reflects the comfortable and natural style of its surroundings.

Mark your calendars for Sunday, October 6th, 2013. For ticket purchases and information, please click here.

Hope to see you there!



Throw My Body into a Body of Water!

by Ruben on August 29, 2013

It’s been well over 100 degrees here in Los Angeles and all I can think about is swimming in a body of water.

I love swimming pools and I love swimming in them!

Nudity = Art

August 21, 2013

I love adding a little bit of nakedness to a room, it creates an unexpected mood for the space. Never be afraid of a little nude art, it’s natural in design…
