Generation Next: Nicole Gibbons


Company Name: Nicole Gibbons Studio LLC

Occupation: Interior Designer and On-Air Personality

Business location: New York City
How long I've been in business:  I set up my business in 2008 and went full-time in January 2013.
What I do: As an interior designer, I manage both residential and commercial design projects with a focus on delivering high-style interiors that are timeless and sophisticated yet have a fresh, modern edge. As a design expert and on-air personality, my focus is on creating content and delivering useful ideas that inspire others to create a home they love and to do it with style.

Entrepreneur I look up to most: Oprah Winfrey & Martha Stewart. I admire Oprah for all that she has achieved as a media mogul and for her generous spirit and commitment to helping others. And I've always admired Martha Stewart's business model.

Style icons I'm inspired by: I am obsessed with Solange Knowles' style! I also really love the classic sophistication of Kerry Washington and there are also a few fashion bloggers I follow whose style I'm obsessed with. 

Key advice we would give to budding entrepreneurs: Be open and adaptable, learn from your mistakes, don't be afraid to ask for help and find mentors to help you along in your journey.

Check out Nicole's debut on OWN's 'Home Made Simple' on Saturday November 2 at 9am/8c.
