An Elegant Life-Long Journey | Blanche Garcia

Update: 2021-02-08


We're excited to share that interior designer, Blanche Garcia, will be joining us for our first episode of 2021! We learn from Blanche's combined experience of on-site construction to high profile interiors, which is apparent in her beautiful work. She also brings along a special guest to keep Rocco company!​

Famously known as a designer who goes against the grain in an industry so fixated on trends, Interior Designer and Entrepreneur Blanche Garcia’s aesthetic is not one that can be labeled.

Instead, her design is looked upon as a lifestyle that is individual to her and especially to each of her clients.

Long before her days as a successful Interior Designer, Blanche found her love of construction while volunteering at the age of 12 for nonprofit building projects around the country with her mother. It was there that she learned to develop construction crafts such as electrical, drywall and tile work, among many others.

Today, Blanche is an award winning certified Interior Designer with over 24 years of experience in residential, hospitality and commercial design and is the owner of B. garcia Designs based in Montclair, New Jersey. She is a “Green Design” LEED Accredited Professional through the United States Green Building Commission. She is also a “WELL AP” design professional which utilizes healthy concepts to promote human health and wellness within the built environment.

Blanche was also the principal designer featured in the popular Travel Channel reality series, “Hotel Impossible” for five seasons, where she helped tackle the job of revamping hotels along with host, Anthony Melchiorri.

HGTV named her one of their Faces of Design in 2017. Blanche and her firm B. garcia designs is also the proud recipient of the American Society of Interior Designers “Design of Excellence” Award in multiple categories. Her client list ranges from members of the New York Jets, corporations, restaurants, hotels, nightclubs, lounges, & homes around the world. Most notably, is her recently completed Wyndham TRYP Hotel located in Newark NJ. She has been featured on the cover of Montclair Magazine, and in the pages of Boutique Design Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, US Magazine, Red Book, Latina, Design NJ, and more. She has also appeared on HGTV, Better Show, and Daytime.
