Ronique Gibson - LEED® AP's Summary

Ronique Gibson, Associate AIA, LEED A.P., is a home design/lifestyle expert whose point of view is enhanced by the fact she is a trained architect—stretching back 17 years, her career in the design field brings her a natural astuteness at identifying spatial acuity, aesthetic elegance and overall graciousness when she is crafting coverage for new media.

She launched Stagetecture.com in 2009, quickly establishing herself as a voice on the design scene by helping homeowners meet myriad challenges. Through the informative blog, she showcases elements that bring pizzazz to interiors, helps the frazzled gain a handle on organization, shares fun do-it-yourself projects, and acts as a resource for top-shelf solutions that make everyday life brighter and more aesthetically pleasing.

Requests to contribute to a variety of high-profile home-design, architecture and lifestyle blogs and publications quickly followed. Gibson has represented the popular portal Freshome.com at the World Market Las Vegas, and was tapped by Brizo to participate in Blogger19—a select group of social media savants who attend New York Fashion Week to see Jason Wu launch his couture collections each year. Within five years of founding Stagetecture, she has gone global, traveling to Valencia and Madrid as a member of a select group of leading architectural journalists with the Tile of Spain organization.

Gibson also serves as the ‘Blogger Expert’ moderator for the Interior Designer Community on Google+. In this capacity, she offers new media tips and presents coverage of her travels to design events. She is known for enhancing the brands she has special access to, both for their existing audience and potential customers, through video, social media and blogging. One such event, an invitation to participate in a video produced by SubZero/Wolf that presented the ideas of influential design bloggers, illustrates her worldwide influence that has enabled her to form beneficial alliances with major brands

111 Simple Tips for Your Everyday Home

Jacksonville, Fla. – Jacksonville-based home décor and DIY blogger and social media expert Ronique Jones Gibson recently published her first e-book, 111 Simple Tips for Your Everyday Home.

“This e-book has been in the works for a long time,” Gibson said, “and I’m happy to say that sales are already going well!”

With 11 chapters covering areas from the kitchen and bath to bedrooms, entryways and what Gibson calls the “outdoor home,” 111 Simple Tips for Your Everyday Home is packed with practical, easily-implemented ideas to make any residence more comfortable, convenient and attractive. Useful suggestions for maximizing storage space and making the most of a small space are included along with a wealth of other decorating and organizational hints.

One chapter is devoted to creating a functional and appealing home office, a topic that’s particularly important to Gibson, an Associate Architect and LEED Accredited Professional. A full-time blogger and social media expert, the mother of three does 90 percent of her work from the living room of her home.
“I’m passionate about my own surroundings and creating a beautiful, well-designed living environment for my family,” said Gibson, “and I love sharing ideas and strategies with like-minded people. Following your passion makes every workday a joy!”
