For nearly a quarter century, Gordon has owned her eponymous design business, which channels her playful energy into exuberant decor. The New York-based designer describes her aesthetic as “eclectic,” adding “celebration is joyous. I want the environments I help to create to be un-intimidating, yet high-end.” Her client roster includes plenty of celebrities and beauty brands that seek out her cheerful designs.

On her inspiration: “I walk everywhere and talk to everybody. I love hitting the streets in every city, particularly my hometown of New York where neighborhoods are in a constant state of evolution and new mediums are constantly being introduced.”
