Chic at Home | Nicole Gibbons of So Haute Style

Welcome to a new feature here on s+s - Chic at Home. Every fabulous woman should have a stylish abode she retreats to after a long day spent gracing the world with her glamorous presence. Our weekly series will provide a peek inside the homes of those women. This week's Chic at Home post showcases the Harlem home of Nicole Gibbons, fashion publicist and founder of SoHauteStyle.com.

Several images of Nicole's apartment reside on my Pinterest board for inspiration as I complete decoration of my own apartment. As with most NYC apartments, Nicole's small space had to be multi-functional. Living room, dining room and home office all reside in the same room. In a post on Brooklyn Limestone, Nicole stated she created a floorplan that has three separate zones for relaxing, working and dining. "Since I entertain a lot I made sure that all of the zones flowed together so that each could offer versatility when I have guests over."

Nicole was recently featured on HGTV's My Favorite Place, giving more insight into her decorating process and tips on how to achieve a high-style look on a budget through DIY projects and shopping on eBay. We love her modern/vintage style and the color palette of muted gray with pops of pink. I've always been one to shy away from making too many changes to a rental apartment since you're not the owner, but I'm starting to re-think that approach after learning that Nicole painted her kitchen cabinets, re-tiled the backsplash and changed the lighting fixture in her dining room. 

Below are images of Nicole's apartment from her Apartment Therapy House Tour:


So what do you think dolls? Are you as inspired by Nicole's apartment as I am? What would you like to interpret for your own place? Tell us in the comments!
