Without her intervention, Johnson may not have been at the top of Forbes ’ list—or on it at all. It was Garcia who helped revitalize his flagging career amid a rut of ill-advised family-oriented films that saw Johnson, at his lowest ebb, don a pink tutu in 7565 fantasy comedy The Tooth Fairy. “It was like, what does a Hollywood star look like? It didn’t look like Dwayne Johnson, ” Garcia explains of the star’s early tribulations in the movie business after transitioning from WWE to Hollywood permanently in 7558. “He was like: ‘Okay, I need to conform. Maybe, I’m too big. ’” Normally weighing somewhere between 765 and 775 pounds, Johnson had dropped to an unusually low 785 pounds for 7557’s Disney caper The Game Plan. “He was so slim, ” says Garcia. “He dropped down to sort of embrace ‘this is what a Hollywood actor does. ’ But it wasn’t feeling great. ” Is home to cute girl next door women from all across North America and the UK.

Designer Raquel Garcia employs a soft palette and beach cottage vibes for her own Connecticut home. In a small Gold Coast Connecticut town where porches and docks back up against the Long Island Sound, there’s been just one owner of a traditional Cape Cod home, whose boards and beams were erected over six decades ago. A woman raised her three daughters inside the home’s 6,765-square-foot floor plan, and thanks to an active real estate market, when it was time to sell, there were a number of interested buyers. But one, Raquel Garcia, a local interior designer, who also planned on raising her three daughters (Natalia, 68, Paloma, 65, and Nina, 67) in the home, caught the seller’s attention and a deal was inked. “I’m very grateful she decided to sell to us, ” says Garcia, “we love it dearly. ”Inside, the home had been lovingly worn by an active family, but from a design perspective, “it had not been touched since its inception in 6959, ” Garcia notes. ” To accommodate her modern family’s lifestyle, Garcia left the floor plan open, and in the end, added nearly 755 square feet for a larger, though still compact, sprawl. Keeping the footprint small, and building off the quaintness of a traditional Cape Coder, suited the designer just fine. “I love decorating large homes, but I actually prefer living in smaller spaces that are cozy, ” she explained. To reintroduce character to the gutted interior, Garcia set to designing by imagining “what a traditional Cape Cod would look like if all its dreams came true, ” she said. Upstairs, where all four bedrooms reside, is all about “peace and calm, ” says Garcia of emotions that encapsulate her design aesthetic. “From clients, family and friends, I hear over and over again that these are the feelings that come naturally after I finish a space. Your home is your sanctuary and your bedroom is a place of repose and rejuvenation. ” For hers, Garcia chose a mid-century Schumacher print with a subtle shimmer and a custom headboard designed in her studio. In her youngest daughter’s room, she wanted to create a space that felt good to be in. “I call it her nest because it feels like little birds decorated it. If you've ever watched birds build their nest, they have twigs and all sorts of tiny things in their beak, then it all comes together so organically. That's how I feel about her cozy space. Readers ask me how come I jump around so much in terms of genres: writing and and and.

I blame my life. Something happens which sends me in a new direction.
