Glenn Gissler Design

1123 Broadway, at 25 St., Ste. 1100; 212-228-9880;

504 E. 74th St., nr. York Ave., Ste. 1E; 212-288-6856;

Mariette Himes Gomez is a modern classicist who creates fresh, unpretentious spaces. “Even the mildest of rooms deserves a shot of color,” she says. “When used in moderation, cobalt blue, pale blue, and celadon can supply just the right punch.”

Hamilton Design Associates

1 Union Sq. W., at 14th St., Ste. 709; 212-620-0800;
