Sand Castle

How flippin’ dreamy is antiques dealer and designer Richard Shapiro‘s Mediterranean villa? Sitting high above Broad Beach in Malibu, antiqued sandstone walls and floors contrast perfectly against immense steel windows, open spaces, and an impressive black volcanic stone kitchen. And can we discuss how spectacular the smooth steel stairway balustrade is?!

  2. How dreamy! The textures are stunning! I’m a big fan of the dark walls with bright furniture. Reminds me of a chalkboard actually 🙂
