Richard Mishaan is renowned for his masterly integration of textiles, palettes rich in complementary shades, natural materials forged by artisans, surfaces bedecked with talismanic curios, a strategic sense of when and where to place a mirror, and a deep knowledge of both the fine and decorative arts. His many influences, including his upbringing in Colombia, coupled with his idiosyncratic perspective, explain why his sophisticated clientele return repeatedly as their lives evolve. In Richard Mishaan Design, his working methods are revealed in projects as varied as the conversion of a 400 year old barn in the Hamptons into a warm, inviting family home and the transformation of an ultra modern, glass walled New York City apartment into a comfortable yet sophisticated aerie. Here, too, are show houses, which he uses as experimental laboratories, working out such diverse design ideas as updating legendary designer Renzo Mongiardino’s aesthetic and achieving a chic look on a tight budget. He has also designed rooms in bespoke hotels, ranging from the Rat Pack–influenced Shelborne in Miami to the Tcherassi, a renovated 250 year old mansion in Cartagena, Colombia. With its exceptional variety and wealth of eclectic, inventive ideas, Richard Mishaan Design provides an endless fount of inspiration.
