When we come across art work, decor pieces or individuals that inspire us, we want to share what we’ve been loving with our readers! We’re not the firsts to arrive at the conclusion that interior designer and television personality Nicole Gibbons is a dynamic force within her industry. But, for those of you who may be less familiar or just discovering her, we thought it may be fun to list just 3 cool facts about this style influencer!
Have You Seen Her?
As long time fans, we’ve watched as Nicole shared her talents on so many platforms. Currently, you can find her on OWN’s Emmy award winning show, Home Made Simple. There, she helps deserving families transform their homes using her skills as a gifted designer. You may have also seen Nicole on other television programs and networks like the Rachel Ray Show, Good Morning America, HGTV, The Hallmark Channel and on Huffington Post Live.
One of the first places we spotted Nicole was on her design and lifestyle blog, So Haute Style. Filled with practical and stylish tips on how you can improve your home, her blog was one of the first ways she made a name for herself in the interior design world.
Nicole started her professional career as a public relations leader within the fashion industry. That valuable experience has, undoubtedly, translated well in her work with interiors. Nicole’s refined tastes are, somewhat, of a signature within her work. We love her use of bold colors or patterns as well as her ability to incorporate timeless art pieces with modern-themed rooms. Her appreciation for classic design meshes well with many of today’s fresh trends.
The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From the Tree
Nicole has been quoted as saying she is a “self-taught” interior designer. Employing her tremendous work ethic, she has established herself in the design world starting from a place of passion. This approach, incidental as it may be, has paid huge dividends, given how she’s garnered the reputation as a trusted name in her industry. Nicole also credits her mom, a professional decorator by trade, as an influence on her work.
“I grew up with a decorator mom, so I guess you could say the love of design is in my blood! I remember going with my mom to the Michigan Design Center as a kid. I’d run around the showrooms pretending that I was shopping for my dream mansion! As I got older, I came to appreciate design in a different way. I absolutely love the industry, and being surrounded by good design always keeps me inspired.”
