Bonita Springs-based Vogue Interiors announced it has completed the interior design of Stock Construction’s Greenbriar II model residence in Lely Resort’s Lakoya neighborhood. The 2,949 square feet home includes three bedrooms, four baths, formal living and dining rooms, a study, an island kitchen and family room, a three-car garage, and an outdoor living area with a pool, spa, outdoor kitchen and sitting and dining areas.
The Greenbriar II’s interior was designed and executed by Vogue’s Sheila Herrera, I.D.S. Her dramatic, sparkly design conveys a sophisticated, contemporary feeling. To lighten the look, Herrera utilized numerous reflective elements, including stainless steel, chrome, crystal, glass and mirrors, all of which play against a pale grey color palette with black, white, raspberry and plum accents. Off-white trim and porcelain tile flooring in the main living areas contribute to the home’s inviting ambiance.
“The design is modern and fresh with a nod to Old Hollywood glamour,” said Herrera. “My goal was to create something comfortable and practical without having to compromise style. The model has a classy, romantic feeling. Sleek, modern furnishings incorporate a variety of materials, such as chrome, glass, espresso wood and mother of pearl. Curved pieces covered in velvets and leathers create a soft, sexy look. Fur pillows and shag rugs provide soft textures. The reflective elements bring another dimension to the softer aspects of the design. Examples include the home’s crystal and chrome lighting fixtures, as well as small crystal details added to the draperies to bring a touch of elegance.”
The foyer’s floor to ceiling mirror, original silver, black and grey canvases, an espresso console with a glass top and a settee with animal print accent pillows establish Herrera’s engaging style. A crystal and chrome chandelier introduces the elegance and sophistication incorporated in the design.
A feature wall with faux stone columns, espresso accents, and a flush-mounted fireplace with a fiery bed of glass rather than wood logs provides a captivating memory point in the living room. Herrera’s use of reflective elements continues with a glass tile surround and a sunburst mirror set above the fireplace. A curved velvet sectional sofa with contemporary print and black eyelash pillows, a curved espresso-finished console table, a cocktail table executed in two circular sections over a shag rug and a circular end table are indicative of the soft, sexy character of the design.
Herrera finished the pale grey study with espresso-toned hardwood flooring. Furnishings include walnut-toned bookcases, a desk in the same finish with elements that continue her circular motif, a metallic pearl faux leather chair, and a grey, white and black animal hide area rug. Sheer gauze draperies compliment a faux leather cornice board that looks like ostrich skin.
The model’s formal dining room includes a niche wall with an aubergine faux finish. A Michael Weiss console with a two-tone espresso and putty finish and a chrome base is set in the niche. Six small mirrors in circular motif frames are set above the console and flanked by chrome and crystal sconces. A prominent chrome and crystal chandelier is suspended over an espresso dining table that seats six.
Herrera’s finishes in the kitchen reflect the design’s use of coordinated colors and sleek lines. Clean-lined cabinetry in a unique taupe shade accented by chrome hardware plays against granite countertops with grey, plum and black tones and a putty-colored glass tile backsplash. Plum-toned wallpaper in the kitchen and breakfast area continues the elegant color mix. A peninsula with a stainless steel sink includes a raised bar with three bar stools. The sink, a crystal and chrome chandelier, and a stainless steel appliance package blend seamlessly with the shimmer and sparkle elsewhere in the home.
In the grey-toned family room, Herrera utilizes a faux-finished drywall bump-out rather than a niche. The bump-out serves as a TV wall with an espresso shelf and espresso console. Furnishings include a grey sectional with faux Lazar leather back pillows and black, white and raspberry accent pillows, a circular cocktail table with an antiqued mirror top, a pair of raspberry ultra-suede ottomans, and an area rug in shades of grey with a burst of floral. A magazine rack that incorporates a combination of leather and chrome with a glass top serves as an end table. A second, cube-shaped end table has an espresso finish. Chrome lamps with black shades and a sparkling contemporary lamp provide lighting.
Herrera’s espresso-toned furnishings continue in the master bedroom. A dresser and the headboard include a black mother of pearl inlay and brushed silver hardware. White shaggy pillows, a black leather pillow with a zipper detail and a soft throw play against the room’s pale grey tones. Pendant chandeliers with crystal elements and white shades are suspended over the espresso nightstands. Gauzy grey window treatments with a ruffle detail and an off-white chenille “fainting couch” provide a bit of romance.
The living area’s porcelain tile is also used on the floor, tub deck and tub backsplash in the master bath. A mosaic glass tile listello on the backsplash is repeated in three bands on the shower wall. Espresso-toned vanities with crowned hardware are topped by metallic black granite countertops set against a black tile backsplash with silver and chrome banding. Mirror-mounted crystal and chrome sconces provide additional sparkle.
Silver wallpaper with a paprika detail and a pale grey vanity with a granite countertop and charcoal glass backsplash are featured in a powder bath that serves as a pool bath. Sliders open the living room to an outdoor living space where curved sofas with coral accents mimic the curved sofa inside. The pool and spa feature a unique metallic tile detail.
