Taracea to Host Luxury Designer's Book Launch
The event in Taracea’s High Point showroom in the Historic Radio Building at at 164 S. Main St. is set for Sunday, Oct. 20, 4:30-7:30 p.m.; and is open to all Market attendees.
Interior designer and lifelong traveler Sandra Espinet offers a wealth of advice and beautiful pictorial examples on integrating the treasures found on her journeys in her newly released book ‘The Well Traveled Home.’ Espinet, who traveled as a child and whose “personal appetite for adventure” continues, describes how she created her own litmus test for what items she should or shouldn’t buy, no matter how exotic and vibrant.
Visually, the book is a voyage of homes, where Espinet, known as the mix-master of eclectic convergence, has melded exotic furniture finds, architectural elements, accessories and art with traditional furnishings, to create alluring family living spaces.
Handcrafted furniture and original art objects from Taracea have long been a favorite resource for Espinet. One of her latest projects earmarked for publication in Architectural Digest Mexico features stunningly grained tree trunk cross-sections mounted on a wall.
“Working with amazing custom manufacturers like Taracea is what distinguishes my work,” said Espinet. “They help me to create one-of-a-kind interiors for my clients.”
Published in numerous magazines, including Architectural Digest’s international issues, Cosmopolitan and Signature Kitchens & Baths, Espinet is an allied member of the American Society of Interior Designers. She has appeared on several HGTV shows, including “Celebrity Holiday Home,” and on Martha Stewart Living Radio.
