 In the chaotic L.A , the buzzing of the city,  Antiques impresario Richard Shapiro created something like a paradise.. His Mediterranean villa is rising above Broad Beach in Malibu uniquely decorated up to the last detail. While most of the house is filled with antiques, the space remains simple plained with regional luxury which is totally in harmony with the external environment. Light filled, the living room has 20-foot steel windows frame to provide the ocean view that takes your breath away. An arched doorway leads from the library to the garden. Few words can be written about the overwhelmin kitchen and the volcanic stairway! Shaphiro selected honed basalt for the kitchen’s  back wall and he designed the sleek steel balustrade, painted gunmetal grey.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?

    Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
