Richard Mishaan is a man with rich taste. Which is a valuable quality to have being an interior designer. He has worked in the interior design industry for more than two decades and is known for his expansive touch. His ability to blend styles and elements is something many designers envy. For instance, Mishaan was able to beautifully mix antiquity and modernity in a residence in Cartagena, a port city built in the 16th century. He liked the area so much he decided to renovate another residence and make it a retreat for him, his wife, and children.
A large part of what makes him such a successful interior designer is his insistence on individualizing a client’s home. He makes a real effort to create from his client’s perspective rather than using his entirely. He believes everyone’s home decor should match their individual personality.
Mishaan has also designed interiors for himself in various locations in New York. He’s actually resided in one of the locations for nearly 20 years. It is an apartment in Manhattan that overlooks Central Park. With one visit to Mishaan’s home you’ll be able to tell his rich taste goes beyond just fine furniture and floor tiles. High quality art is peppered through the space, including a table by Guy de Rougement and a stainless-steel piece by Chinese artist Zhan Wang. It can really start to feel like your in a museum when you really take the time to appreciate all the fine art inside.
His design firm, Richard Mishaan Design is constantly changing things around. The designer is never afraid to try something new or scrap everything and completely restart. He uses the apartment for practice for future projects.
Mishaan grew up in Bogota, Columbia, where he spent several winter holidays on the Spanish colonial port on Colombia’s enchanted Caribbean coast. He currently resides in New York.
