Before and After: Nicole Gibbons' Chic Rental Redesign

Featured as a stylemaker in the September issue of Better Homes and Gardens, Nicole Gibbons, designer and blogger behind So Haute Style, revamped her apartment after making a major life change. “I’d been living in my rental for about seven years and last year I made a huge life transition leaving my old job to focus on design full-time, which meant I would be working from home,” Gibbons tells us. “Since I was spending so much more time in my apartment I started growing tired of my surroundings and just wanted a fresh change.” Updated furnishings, a new color palette, and a lighting overhaul resulted in a totally new look for the designer’s New York City home.
