DESIGN TIPS FROM BLANCHE GARCIA

On the hit show, "Hotel Impossible," designer Blanche Garcia masterfully redesigns spaces in desperate need of stylish makeovers. During our exclusive interview with her while she was in Ocean City, she shared a couple of simple, yet important, design tips for you at home.


Keep it simple:
"Don’t go crazy, especially when it comes to color. Stick to the No. 3 theory: Pick a neutral color and two others to complement it. Remember that whatever you paint lighter, that will be highlighted. Ceiling fans should blend into the ceiling; air conditioners should blend into the walls and so on. Only highlight the things you want to look at."


Make sure the space has “you” in it:
"Don’t be afraid to mix things up. Don’t be afraid to take a garage sale find and incorporate it with a high-end item. The space should really be about you."


Season 3 of Hotel Impossible airs Monday nights at 10 p.m. on The Travel Channel.
