Of all the homes I love, I think this home has the most amazing mix of old/new and modern/traditional elements I’ve ever seen. The owner Richard Shapiro (who is referred to as an “antiques impresario”) designed and built this house himself and I’m just in awe of his vision and style.
Of course, all of the art and artifacts collected from around the world really speak to me and what about all the great contrasting features like that unbelievable staircase? The owner built this as his weekend house and I decided it’s going to be the inspiration for my vacation house too. I believe in dreaming big!
