A Cheery Boho-Modern Bedroom Reveal

I always believe that when executed well, the use of color can be the single most transformative design element in a room.  Case in point: this cheery, boho-modern bedroom I designed for a model apartment project that debuted last year. I can’t believe I haven’t shared this one with you yet but I’m excited to finally show you this lovely space! Let’s start the reveal by taking a look at what the room looked like before…

Since this was a model apartment, I began the design planning before there were even walls up which is really tough to do because …

Before & After: A Sunny & Stylish Kids Room Makeover

A while back I worked on a project for a young couple who hired me to redesign their two-bedroom apartment. (You can see more of that project here.) The apartment’s smaller bedroom was occupied by their adorable toddler son who loved dinosaurs and was finally ready for a big boy room. But, a couple of months into the project, the family learned they were expecting baby #2!  How exciting! The kicker for me is that they wanted to keep the gender a surprise so I now had to turn what would have been a big boy room into a …

Twins Room Makeover 9

My Twin Niece & Nephew’s Room Makeover!

Meet Noah and Noemi. These four-year-old twin cuties are my brother’s kids and two of my favorite little people on the planet. I recently redecorated their room, transforming their old nursery into a colorful and fun big kid space. Previously, they were still sleeping in toddler crib beds and now that they’re officially big kids, it was time for Auntie Nicole to come to the rescue! With the help of my sister-in-law, we embarked on a budget-friendly makeover that I’m so excited to share with you! First, let’s take a look at what the room looked like before….

NGS Client Project: A Serene & Sophisticated Apartment Redesign

Earlier this year I finished up the redecoration of a condo on the Upper West Side for the most adorable young family ever and I’m excited to share some before and afters from the project with you here! The clients purchased their condo a few years prior to us working together but never managed to make it feel like a home. They wanted a new look for their apartment that felt more polished  and grown up. The priorities were the combined living/dining room followed by the master bedroom and eventually, the kids room (more on that in a future post). …

Nicole Gibbons Studio Project: The Coolest Playroom In Brooklyn

A lot of my clients are young families with small children so I get to work on a lot of kids spaces and it’s always so much fun! This folks, is what I have dubbed, “The Coolest Playroom In Brooklyn.” It’s a space I designed for my clients in Brooklyn last year and it truly is the go-to spot for neighborhood play dates. I wanted to dedicate a post to revealing this space and walking you through the design process while also sharing some great tips on creating the perfect, kid-friendly play space. I also included some before and afters …

A Teen Vogue Editor’s Stylish Rental Bathroom Makeover

My friend Elaine is one stylish woman. She also happens to be the Beauty & Health Director at Teen Vogue and not long ago she moved to a new apartment in the super trendy West Village. Elaine says that as long as she’s been in New York she has always wanted to have her very own Carrie Bradshaw moment living in the West Village but in order to live in one of Manhattan’s most coveted neighborhoods, she had to make a huge sacrifice on space. Her entire apartment is just under 300 square feet! Elaine was stumped on how to …
