A Sophisticated Blend

Antiques Dealer and Designer, Richard Shapiro
has struck a beautiful balance in his residence in Malibu.
  

Pieces from around the globe ... old and new, ornate and primitive...
all coexist peacefully.

I am especially impressed by Mr. Shapiro's light hand with the antiques and decorative objects he used – with access to so many pieces, he could have easily filled every nook and cranny.  Instead, he wisely chose to leave much negative space throughout giving a relaxed, unpretentious air to the home.  
— Beautifully curated.



P.S.  I shared the living room of this home last year if you missed that 
– or would like to visit it again, see link below (I'm still coveting the fireplace):
