This book includes designer showcase homes from  San Francisco, Atlanta, Manhattan, Houston and Indianapolis. It is great for our city to be included with other major metropolitan centers of fine design. We were honored to be included and especially so to be one of a handful of designers to be interviewed in depth.  Our work is shown at the top left of the front cover and in a two page  spread of photos along with the interview. It was a heady experience to be asked to talk about our ideas and designs, to be able to explain our process and...

Dining Room

Artwork by Fernand Léger. The chandelier, a Donald  Desky design for the lounge at  Radio City Music Hall, made of spun aluminum. This Indianapolis  dining room engages with art and antiques that mix with custom contemporary objects. The antique German shrunk is veneered with exotic wood. Its scale and dramatic proportions anchor the space . The light fixture, an antique that first hung in  Radio City Music Hall at Rockefeller Center, is spun aluminium and glass, and washes the room with a soft glow. A custom table sits on a Tibetan carpet...

Decorators’ Show House

Misch Bobrick Design was pleased to have participated in the 2012  St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild Decorators’ Show House & Gardens. For our inspiration, we imagined clients that appreciate clean lines, local artists and a bit of glamor.  The room represents how a room can evolve over time.  We mixed antiques with  new furniture.  Note how wonderfully the modern loveseat from Hancock and Moore in the Louis XVI Style with a  lacquered frame raised on paneled legs compliments the antique Chippendale side chairs. Highlights of our...

Custom Walk In Shower

Custom Walk In Shower

Walls and floors sheathed in soft blue glass mosaic tiles transform this modern bath into a watery wonderland. The bidet and water closet share a secluded alcove. We placed the windows  high on the wall to allow privacy and natural light without shades. So many of our clients appreciate the utility of a  bidet that we end up incorporating them in many new bathrooms. Yesterdays European luxury has become todays fixture of choice. The master bathroom of twenty years ago, dominated by a seldom used whirlpool tub, has evolved to include a walk in...

Luxurious Master Suite

Luxurious Master Suite

This luxurious downtown Indianapolis master bedroom suite is the perfect escape.  We upholstered the walls in the same fabric as the headboard and bedding material to create a soothing monochromatic scheme.  The drapery panels, also in the same cashmere fabric, soften light and noise from outside. The effect is luxurious and calming. Textured, plush carpet in a custom dyed color completes the shell of the room. Hushed and serene. I personally hate the daily task of “making up the bed”, so I try to create bedrooms that require a...

Accessory Detail

It’s important to have a focal point in a room, one main feature that dominates your eye and draws your attention. That might be a fireplace in a living room, an intricate headboard in a bedroom or an island in a kitchen. A focal point is something that gives the room meaning and purpose and gives the eye a landing place. But equally important are the smaller details and accent pieces. These accessories serve to tie the room together, but also can offer real insight into what matters to you, the homeowner. On a purely aesthetic level,...

Dine and Live Well

Why did King Arthur and his legendary knights choose to sit at a round table instead of a more traditional rectangular table? Think back to your own childhood family dinners at a rectangular table. Chances are your father sat at the head of the table, literally and figuratively leading the family and dominating the conversation. Even unconsciously, we yield power to the person sitting at the head of the table. However, when you choose a round table, that hierarchy breaks down. Everyone is seated closer together, and because there’s no...

Spectacular and Functional Too

Less is more. A custom stainless steel island top in this contemporary Indianapolis kitchen incorporates a state of the art cooktop and ventilation system. If you are  tired of the same old granite that you see EVERYWHERE, you can explore some other fantastic materials. The kitchen is  a place to use all we know about good interior design, to make it function well, to make it beautiful, to make it your own. To please this homeowner, minimalism was  key. We carried the countertop material, a manmade quartz, up and around the window in slab...

Natural Light, Natural Conversation

Natural Light, Natural Conversation

There was a time when interior design trends ran toward heavy curtains and thick draperies. People were willing to sacrifice warm, natural light for a bit of privacy. But natural light instantly makes a room more welcoming and more calming. Not only does it make the room look beautiful, the vitamin D found in sunshine is critical to our overall health and happiness. Just being in a sunny room can lift your spirits. It can also add a dynamic, ever-changing quality to your room as the various angles of light strike the room as the sun moves...

Meridian Street Mansion

Meridian Street Mansion

Traditional does not mean boring or fussy. This original fireplace was cleaned and polished to bring back the luster of the 1920’s.   The seating group in front of the fireplace is accented with a Dakota Jackson table. It has a silky finish of gold leaf and macassar ebony . The styistic flourishes of the contemporary echo the pared down simplicity of the important Biedermeier chairs and tables. We finished all the upholstery with black or white fabrics, which allow the forms and wood finishes of the chairs and sofas to be the stars.   ...
