Stacy Garcia Golden Hour Color Crush
This month's Color Crush, Golden Hour, is an energetic yellow hue.

Soak in one of nature’s most glorifying moments with the invigorating feel of our Color Crush, Golden Hour. A vibrant, warm gold, this color is reminiscent of those fleeting moments right before sunset when the sky fills with glowing hues of yellow and red. Breathtaking sunlight that never seems to last long enough, Golden Hour brings us comfort with its inviting and familiar feel. See our favorite Golden Hour palettes below.

Sunlit Mesa Palette

Inspired by the time right before sundown in a vast, rocky terrain, the Sunlit Mesa Palette expresses the burst of warmth present in the sky with Golden Hour. As we embrace its vibrancy, we’re brought back down to earth with less saturated, nature-inspired neutrals. Expressing a mix of both cool and warm colors, the palette pairs a smokey stone blue and mossy green with tones of a sandy beige and earthy brown for a grounded look. Use this palette in your wardrobe as a way to transition from Summer to Fall or in a space where you turn to for comfort and relaxation.

Imagine gazing over the ocean right before sunrise, when light is just becoming visible in the sky as the incoming sunlight scatters off the atmosphere. The On The Horizon Palette is inspired by this, playing with contrast with a bold mid-tone blue and the bright Golden Hour yellow. A cloud-like white helps to balance these opposing colors as hints of seashell beige featuring a slight pink undertone bring a sense of warmth. Use this palette in a fun outfit that works well from day into night or to create an expressive and playful space.

Meet Stacy.

A leader in design, Stacy Garcia has built a global lifestyle brand featuring products with personality. Her designs aim to be inviting and add to the sense of well-being to all who enter a hotel or home.

Stacy strives to inspire designers and design-minded individuals to create distinctive environments that have a positive impact on others. Noted for her bold color combinations and unexpected designs, Stacy Garcia remains a leading innovator in the industry.

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. Today, the Stacy Garcia design house produces designs for textiles, carpeting, wallcoverings, furniture, lighting, pillows and mosaics.

Stacy Garcia offers a complete design story in the hospitality industry. Stacy Garcia branded products can be found in five-star hotels, resorts and residences across the world.

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.”
