Who says sandy hues have to be dull? We’re giving grit a whole new look with the creamy appeal of Sahara Oasis. Elevating an atmosphere that may otherwise seem rugged or abrasive, this sorbet orange introduces an unexpected clean and crisp element, creating a polished and sophisticated look. Inspired by a desert landscape, Sahara Oasis can be layered with various textures to reinforce the juxtaposition between the sand’s rough, dry surface and the dunes' smooth, fluid appearance against the horizon from afar. We also love this hue paired with complementary colors like a freshwater blue, as shown in the images above. See our favorite Sahara Oasis palettes below!

Sahara Oasis brings nature’s rough beauty to a traditional and polished look. Similar to the ancient Egyptian city, this palette layers subtle, monochromatic shifts of color, such as soft white and muted neutrals with peachy undertones, to give this palette a natural feel, while Sahara Oasis adds a burst of energy. A pop of minty sage and olive green create a refreshing element of cool contrast. Dress up an outfit with these colors for a confidence boost or use them in a minimal design concept to boast style and class.

The Cleopatra Palette features vibrant yet earthy hues to introduce a clean element to this otherwise rugged color story. Featuring a leafy sage green, indigo and clay brown, these nature-inspired tones are balanced with turquoise blue and cool slate gray to lift the palette. Use this color combination for a rich, eye-catching outfit that will channel those inner-royalty vibes or for designing a space that draws inspiration from ancient design.

The Foundation

Stacy holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Surface Pattern Design from New York’s prestigious Syracuse University and studied Textile Design at Central St. Martins in London.

She began her professional career selecting color palettes and assisting in design and showroom development for Ralph Lauren’s Home Collection “I learned about the art of licensing and lifestyle from one of the masters in the retail world,” says Stacy of this pivotal experience.

Following her work with the iconic brand, Stacy was hired as Senior Designer for Richloom Contract Fabrics, where she directed the textile and pattern design collections for their hospitality division.

Blazes Own Trail

At age 26, Stacy decided to strike out on her own and founded LebaTex, a commercial textile supplier, named after her Great-grandmother, Leba. In 2004, she created the global lifestyle brand, Stacy Garcia. Both companies are headquartered in New York.

At Home in the World

Taking a global perspective on design comes naturally to Stacy. She was born in Guadalajara, Mexico, to parents who she says, “Spent a little too much time following the Grateful Dead on a motorcycle.” A descendent of German, Russian and Polish immigrants, Stacy is the mother of three boys and a recently adopted Russian daughter, and enjoys traveling with her family.

Connecting Through Design

“At the end of day, design is about wanting to feel connected,” says Stacy. “It’s a form of communication – a language. If you are part of a tribe of people, you feel more connected. I’m inspired by the designers, manufacturers and individuals with whom I work; and I hope to empower others to have the confidence to make their own connections and creations – in design and in life.”
