Richard Mishaan Design Firm Will Decorate Your Home in an Expansive Style

The country’s top designers and architects, for the 45th year in a row, have decorated an extremely expensive home in New York. It has five bedrooms and nearly 10,000 square feet of space to work with. They have each given some advice on the do’s and dont’s of decorating, which if heeded could afford you a perfectly decorated home without the expense of a decorator.


Don’t be afraid to use color in your home. Granted men tend to want the darker colors, gray’s and black, dark browns. One designer said that the best way to have the masculine feel you want, paint the walls white, put a chocolate rug down and get a gray sofa. There are unlimited choices to make in designing any home, quality furniture is key.

Do not use rough-hewn wood in excess, contrast it with something that will add polish and shine. The room in question had exposed beams and they offset that by using a high-gloss lacquer paint. There was also a nice cobblestone fireplace, used black plaster on the base and put a great furry rug on the floor, making a cozy, comfortable space to relax in. Architectural glass is very “in” right now as well, which helps to update and modernize a home.


Instead of putting all the furniture back against the walls, try creating a few seating areas. Push the furniture a few feet into the room, which is called “floating the furniture”. You can, in this way, create places to lounge or work.


Decorating on a budget? Buy something that stands out like a great piece of art or a rug. Even buying great accent chairs with unique upholstery will work.
