Exclusive First Look: Designerlebrity, Blanche Garcia's New Book 'Empowered Design'
by Barbara Viteri
You know the old saying, "Never judge a book by its cover". Well never judge designers for mostly writing "coffee table books" with pretty pictures and stylized covers meant for magazine photo-shoots. Designerlebrity, Blanche Garcia is breaking the mold and has just completed a must-read motivational book literally designed by life. Life experiences that is and we can already tell it's gonna make your coffee table envious.
You may have recognized interior designer, Blanche Garcia from watching her on TV. She has been on numerous network shows, like the Travel Channel’s, Hotel Impossible and HGTV's, Design Star Season 6 just to name a few. It's the entrepreneurial side of Blanche that has yet to be spotlighted until now. Her new book, EMPOWERED DESIGN; A Design Plan For Living, takes us on a journey unlike no other. Right out of the gate the first chapter admits to her father being a "Shylock" aka "Loan Shark" with ties to the mob! We are talking from living the lifestyle of glitz and glam to life throwing unexpected curve balls where her mom needed to clean houses to keep a roof over their heads. It's a riches to rags to switches to swags type of tale as we mostly know her to be a fabulous interior designer, but now we will learn so much more. This book shares insights on designing a life that is truly your own and not an emulation of someone's life you admire. We're calling this one: #bestseller.
