    New York-based Richard Mishaan is a man of many talents. A former fashion designer, who studied architecture at Columbia University and apprenticed with Philip Johnson, is now the head of his own interior design/architecture firm. I love how he would spend $500. Anyone who considers Hot Tamales a “go to” drugstore product is alright in my book.

    An indulgence I will never forego is the great haircuts I get from my star hair person. My hair grows like a garden hedge. I think she uses the same clippers as my gardener.

    The greatest gift that I have ever received was the work ethic my father so strictly instilled in me. I thought he was so tough. Now I think of him every time I deal with someone who just does not have a strong work ethic.

    That last thing that I purchased and loved was my Leleu coffee table from Bernd GOEKLER. It is soooooooooooooooooo elegant and simple and makes the entire room sing.

    Right now I have my eye on an Ivan Navarro light piece that is so cool and interesting. It looks as if you are looking into infinity.

    The last song I downloaded Jessie J. “Price Tag”

    My last meal would be all carbs. I have gone off them to lose a few pounds and as much as I am happy being thinner, I’d love a huge bowl of pasta with tomato and basil.

    If I had to move tomorrow I would head for Paris. Need I say more?
