Mr. Mishaan doesn’t shy away from sharing his experience in the world of art with upcoming artists and with the world. This passion of sharing information prompted him to author two books: Artfully Modern and Modern Luxury. Modern Luxury was released in May 2009. The Artfully Modern, on the other hand, was released in November 2014. The Monacelli Press published the two books, and they both explain how Richard Mishaan Design works.
Having spent his entire childhood in Cartagena, Colombia, his native country, Richard Mishaan had a chance to interact and familiarize with beautiful and colorful Colombian landscape. This explains why he always gets it right when blending colors for his art. He also spent time in Italy and Bogota before moving to New York in the 70s. This mixed upbringing has contributed immensely in molding Richard to the creative designer that he is today. This creativity gives Richard Mishaan Design an edge over the other interior designers.
