Designer J Gibson’s Modern Georgian Proves Traditional Can Be On-Trend 

Sure, he went to Harvard and Columbia for architecture and Parsons for interior design — but if you ask Toronto designer J Gibson, he’s always had an innate sense of style. “It’s in my blood,” says J, recalling his late mother, Sandra, a developer who was constantly moving the family into new homes and redoing their interiors. It’s little surprise to learn, then, that over the past 15 years, J’s eponymous design business has expanded into a 10-person team with A-list clients from around the globe. And as for J, he’s made himself at home in at least six different residences. His most recent address is a Toronto home within a classic, 19th-century Georgian manor that he reimagined with a respectful yet modern makeover. Take a look inside below.
