When I first came across Jessica Menda’s Instagram (@jessicamenda), she immediately became one of my favorite design accounts to follow! Besides having a top-notch eye for stunning interiors, she was a fellow lover of edible flowers, Spanish tiles, plastered walls, local produce and the warm patina of old buildings in Puerto Rico, where both our families come from. Jessica’s a creative director at an agency in Venice, Los Angeles and recently picked up her old love of photography again. When she’s not working in advertising, she’s shooting for brands, most of them in the fashion industry. “All my photos on my Instagram are taken with my phone, and it’s become a treasure trove of all the things I love: farmers markets, spaces, color, and textures.” She always seems to be up to something interesting or headed to a photo-worthy location, so follow her along on Instagram if you need ideas of where to go in L.A. and abroad!
