Mr. Mishaan has decorated numerous high end homes and hotels through work at Richard Mishaan Design. One of the famous projects undertaken by Richard Mishaan Design was the renovation, interior design and decoration of a vacation home in Cartagena, Columbia. In this project, Richard Mishaan Design helped to restore and furnish a 16th century Spanish style villa near the ocean. This villa was also Richard Mishaan’s own Colombian vacation house so he takes great pride in this project of his.
In his work with the 16th Century Spanish villa in Cartagena, Richard Mishaan added a roof deck that had sweeping views of the ocean. He also created a courtyard on the Villa’s property that added appeal and additional recreational space. The interior was furnished to feel like a small, boutique hotel. This was done to make the villa feel more like a getaway place where people come to relax. On the exterior, Richard Mishaan Design chose a yellowish exterior to add some brightness and character to what used to be a dull looking structure. The light color also helps reflect the sun’s rays in the hot tropical climate of Columbia.
