The Mishaan touch, stylistically, is an expansive one, which is not surprising—he himself is an expansive person. His combined knowledge of fashion, architecture, and interior design, plus his cultural roots, give him a deep understanding of luxury and quality” Pamela Fiori, Editor-in-Chief, Town & Country.
Born in Colombia, Richard Mishaan began his career by apprenticing in the offices of Philip Johnson after receiving a BA from New York University and attending Columbia University School of Architecture.
As a child, Richard Mishaan spent his winter holidays in this Spanish colonial port on Colombia’s Caribbean coast. “It’s an enchanted place,” says the interior designer, who grew up in Bogotá and is now based in New York. Returning to Cartagena a few years ago to work on a commercial project, he fell in love with it all over again and was soon looking at real estate.
Mishaan has authored two books, Modern Luxury and Artfully Modern both published by Monacelli Press, a division of Random House. Artfully Modern was released in November of 2014.
“The best interiors are layered and rich… I adore creating synergy between collected pieces whose common thread is a tonality, a texture, or simply the excitement they evoke in the client who chose them..” – Richard Mishaan .
