We are captivated by this  double gable Eichler remodel that brought to life a forever home for its owners. At every turn the outdoors is brought inside, creating interior spaces that are open and light-filled while maintaining the modern essence that is an Eichler home.

Centered around an open court yard, this modern home has access to the outdoors from almost every room.

Stainless steel appliances, contemporary lighting fixtures and stylish piston counter stools bring a fresh look to the modern white kitchen.

A little girl’s room offers a warm colorful take on a distinctly retro look. No modern child’s bedroom is complete without the requisite elephant–this one is gray with pink-lined ears and resides happily on the top bunk.

This small bedroom feels spacious with an up close and personal view of the interior courtyard and easy access through a sliding glass door.

A Hidden Villa in the Heart of Malibu

Malibu, California is filled with sandy beaches, celebrity homes, and a whole lot of surfing! Only an hour away from the bustling city of Los Angeles, this affluent Beach city is known to have their fair share of grandiose homes, but we have neverseen a secluded Mediterranean paradise like this one. The creative mastermind behind this home is Robert Shapiro who is known famously as an arts philanthropist, art collector, and antiquarian. Join us as we tour Design Shuffle’s Getaway of the week.

 Hand plastered walls, a muted color palette, and stone floors add a subtle Mediterranean feel to this elegant living room.

One of the most amazing views we have seen in a while, this 20 foot wall is made almost entirely out of windows.

Moroccan Architectural details along with the long center mosaic transport you halfway around the globe.

This Turkish throw adds a subtle pop of color, and is without a doubt the center of attention in this master bedroom.

Comfy seating and a view to the immaculate garden, this is quite the office!

Long arches and lush gardens remind us of a Mediterranean castle.

This sofa had to be custom built to fit the space, and well worth it. We would never leave this cute little nook!

A private entrance to a private beach, what more could you ask for.
