Malibu Cool

April Architectural Digest has featured antiques dealer Richard Shapiro's Malibu house. From frescoed walls, antique fireplaces to sedate views of Pacific, it is all mesmerizing. Though it is new construction on old footprint, it looks as if it has stood there for ages.
With high ceilings and tall windows, the house is open, airy and full of light. Here 4th century Roman torso, 17th century Italian walnut door,18th century French chairs, antique fireplace from Cypress and textiles from Iran and Turkey all feel at home.
