Jenn Pablo is one of those people who's always working but somehow also finds the time to throw a mean dinner party and burst into song like Alicia Keys. Her resume includes but is not limited to the interior design at The Spare Room
at The Hollywood Roosevelt
and a 1960s Bel Air villa. Half of the creative force behind interior and event design company Twofold LA
, Jenn is currently designing a 9,000 sq ft case study house in the Palisades, a 2,400 sq ft property in Hollywood and a 5,000 sq ft home in Beverly Hills. After the projects are completed, Jenn will step behind the camera and shoot each one for Twofold's portfolio. Then, she'll likely go on hiatus from the U.S. for a while to focus on her passion project of traveling the world with her camera in hand. Hell, right now she's touring Spain and France. Cool life, right?

When she isn’t jetsetting the globe or operating Twofold LA with her business partner Olivia Korenberg, Jenn finds sanctuary in the home she has created for herself in Echo Park or revels in the thumping creative pulse of Los Angeles. “I’d like to say it's the food that fuels me, but I am not a foodie. Or the museums ... but it’s mostly the people who inspire me on a daily basis,” says Jenn.
In the long term, Jenn aspires to place her designs and photography in Architectural Digest and Elle Decor and also publish a coffee table book. Some books where she finds inspiration include Julius Shulman's Modernism Rediscovered, Tyler Shield's Dirty Side of Glamour and Alexander McQueen's High Fashion,
