The Profile: All about Stacy Garcia and her fab design house which produces textiles, carpeting, wall coverings, furniture and lighting. Stacy’s brand is known for its innovative design aesthetic and surprising color combinations.
Stacy is a savvy public speaker. I had the pleasure of hearing an ASID sponsored, hour long powerpoint presentation on trend forecasting.  She combined cool images with fascinating facts and left the audience wanting more.
She sports a charming collection of natural looking wigs (not because she has to- because she wants to). Others collect watches or coins, Stacy collects wigs that vary in mood, color and style. It’s like flirting with a new personality each time you see her.
She founded her company in 2003 and it has become a leader in the hospitality design industry.  Stacy Garcia, Inc. has a stellar reputation for facilitating trend directions, consulting and collaborating with companies for stylish products and services.
      The Stacy Garcia brand offers licensed product collections across a number of categories and markets. Products are available through exclusive partners and showrooms worldwide.

                Tell me about a project or accomplishment that you consider significant in your career

                After years of only working in hospitality, it was definitely an accomplishment when I launched Stacy Garcia | New York, my residential brand.

                    What are the rewards from your work

                    I love being able to inspire the people around me. Hearing people say 

                    “You are such an inspiration!” is truly something that makes me love what I do. Being able to bring a vision to life and create beautiful spaces is one of the most rewarding aspects as well. 

                    If there was a movie produced about your life – who would play you

                    Natalie Portman! She is a strong, funny and independent. We also have similar beauty marks so it just makes sense that she would play me right??!


                        Which philanthropic organizations have you been connected to

                        Doing philanthropic work is something that I hold very dear to my heart. I love being involved in as many organizations as I can. I have been connected to CARE, People to People, DIFFA, Holiday House, HRC and many more. Giving back is something that you can never do too much of. 

                        Can you share your motto or mantra

                        Stay Inspired. Along with #stayinspiredsg

                        What book are you currently reading

                        I definitely am a book worm. I love to read as many as five books at once! 

                        I just finished reading The Law of Attraction by Esther and Jerry Hicks


                            along with Millionaire Mindset by Gerry Robert. 


                                Who is your secret celebrity crush

                                Lady Gaga is my woman crush and can I have two male celebrity crushes?? Leonardo DCaprio and Adam Levine. 


                                            What is your favorite time of day

                                            My favorite time of the day is 6:00am. There is just something about first thing in the morning when I wake up and my kids are still sleeping; it is like the calm before the storm. I like to wake up and exercise before I go about my day.

                                                Do you know your heritage

                                                I was born in Mexico and I am an Eastern/European mix of German, Russian and Polish.

                                                Are you fluent in other languages

                                                Not quite, but it is definitely a goal of mine! 

                                                Do you follow astrology – What is your zodiac sign

                                                I am a Sagittarius.

                                                What would your DJ Name be

                                                My DJ name would definitely have to be something unique, like DJ Inspo (short for inspiration) or DJ SG ! 

                                                Do you have a favorite number

                                                13. It has always been my lucky number.

                                                Do you have a favorite fashion magazine

                                                I would have to say Vogue. It is classy and contains the best fashion and lifestyle tips. 


                                                    What is your “go-to” fashion brand

                                                    DVF. I love that she is all about pattern and unique design. Her use of color is also one of my favorites. 


                                                        If we were to peek in your closet, what is the dominant color

                                                        Pattern. You would see a lot of pattern consisting of multiple colors.

                                                        What is your present state of mind

                                                        Currently I am grateful and feel blessed (and it is not just because I recently got over having the flu)! Being able to wake up every day and do what I love and have a family that I adore is something I constantly feel blessed about.

                                                        It’s 6pm at your favorite bar or restaurant, what drink do you order

                                                        Coffee all day but once it turns 6pm I am ordering White Sangria! 


                                                            Do you awake with or without an alarm

                                                            With an alarm absolutely. 

                                                            Do you have a favorite social media outlet?

                                                            Lately it has been Instagram. I could be on it for hours and not realize! There is just so much to do on it; the possibilities are endless! 

                                                            If you could be a background singer, dancer or musician – which entertainer (living or dead) would you choose as the star

                                                            Madonna. That would be an experience of a lifetime.


                                                                What is the last photo you took with your cell phone

                                                                My fluffy puppy Bailey.

                                                                One of the best lessons my parents taught me is to

                                                                My parents have been my biggest fans my whole life and they have taught me so much. One of the biggest lessons they taught me was that you determine your own success. You need to motivate yourself and you can’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something. Believe in yourself and you will succeed. 

                                                                What is your favorite work of art

                                                                I love the work of Edward Degas. His “Little dancer of Fourteen Years” is simply beautiful. 


                                                                    What is your favorite building in Manhattan

                                                                    My favorite building is the IAC building by Frank Gehry. It is so modern looking and nothing like anything else you see in Manhattan. I also am very excited to see the Durst building when it is finished.

                                                                        Stacy Garcia, product designer, entrepreneur, and leading forecaster of color and design trends has been featured as an expert in design and lifestyle on various television programs, in print and online publications.
