Welcome to the Home Staging site at About.com. I'm Ronique Gibson, Associate Architect, LEED A.P. who has been in the home design industry for over 17 years. I worked 12 years in the commercial architectural world and in 2009 decided to leave it for my real passion - home design! I now own a home lifestyle site: Stagetecture.com which is dedicated to helping homeowners stage and sell their home, while also offering decor, recipes and lifestyle tips. I contribute to many high-profile design blogs and publications and pair up with home niche brands to bring my readers to their doorsteps. When she's not writing at Stagetecture.com she helps real estate professionals at Influential Realtor build their personal brand with blogging and social media services and courses.
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. '111 Simple Tips for your Everyday Home' is Ronique's ebook which helps homeowners find decor, organization, and easy tips to beautify their home.
Requests to contribute to a variety of high-profile home-design, architecture and lifestyle blogs and publications quickly followed. Gibson has represented popular blogs and home publications 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. In the fall of 2014 Ronique was selected by Ceramics of Italy to attend the Cersaie Tile Show in Bologna, Italy with an elite group of design journalists and architects.
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.
She's a long time fan of About.com and is pleased to join the About.com team as the home staging expert.
