    Living With Global Details

    A Luxurious Villa By The Sea

    Interior designer Sandra Espinet knows a thing or two about luxury.  The designer, who jet sets between her home in Los Angeles and  her home in Los Cabos, Mexico, has one focus - creating relaxing, luxurious interiors with global flair. A prime example of her signature style - this beautiful villa in Mexico with a panoramic view of the ocean. An ode to luxurious style, the architecture in this home has us swooning. Tall columns, sweeping staircases and moulded archways can be spotted throughout. And Espinet has married the architecture with global details in the way of furnishings, textiles and accessories, that add bursts of color to the interior. A perfect example is the living room where a vivid Persian rug, handcrafted jars and embroidered pillows punctuate the great space. It's no surprise, as Espinet, the author of The Well-Traveled Home, is an expert in bringing global details into an interior.
