Zillow.com, the leading national real estate marketplace, has selected a top Valley interior designer as a finalist for its annual Zillow ‘Digs Design’ Awards. Argentinian-born and ASID award winning designer Ernesto Garcia has propelled to the national stage this year earning a number of honors for his Scottsdale and Paradise Valley luxury home interior designs. Garcia’s winning design is an opulent bathroom and dressing room space part of an inspired French Chateau home in the exclusive North Scottsdale enclave of Silverleaf. Soft with feminine details and lots of whimsy, the Zillow selected design with ornate Rococo chandeliers, regal gold and lilac color palatte and ornate Italian mosaic tile floors and walls.

“This resplendent Silverleaf home was one of the most decadent luxury homes we’ve ever had the opportunity to design,” said Ernesto Garcia, founder and principal designer for Ernesto Garcia Interior Design. “We are honored Zillow selected this unique and beautiful project as one of its favorites for this year’s Design Digs awards,” he said.

jpegThe Zillow ‘Digs Design’ awards launched in August, comparing top interior designs across the country. Designers are evaluated for the chance to be named the top designer in one of these categories: kitchen, bathroom, living room, bedroom or deck. Consumers explored the submissions, digging their favorite images to their own Zillow Digs boards. Images with the most digs at the end of the month advanced to the regional competitions. Garcia;s indulgent bathroom designs have resonated with consumers across the country, propelling him to the regional competition. In the regional competition, winning designs from each category advance to the national vote for Zillow Digs’ first design awards for best kitchen, bathroom, living room, bedroom and deck designs.

“In recent years bathroom design has become as much as a main priority as kitchen design,” Garcia said. “A well designed bathroom should be a beautiful, functional sanctuary where one begins or ends their day, so much thought must go into choosing the amenities that deliver the right kind of experience for the homeowner,” he said.

“Designers shouldn’t be afraid to push the envelope and get creative with tile, stone, fixtures, shower enclosures, wall finishes and art when it comes to bathroom design”, says Garcia. With all those options at his disposal, Ernesto transforms humble lavatories into exquisitely elegant powder rooms. Having designed homes for discerning clientele from every corner of the world, Garcia is an expert at providing his clientele with environments that suit their tastes while anchoring comfortably to a particular region.
