Vogue Interiors announced designers Leslie Gebert, Allied Member, ASID, and Sheila Herrera, IDS have created an interior that exudes both sophisticated elegance and luxurious comfort for Harbourside Custom Homes’ Villa San Remo furnished model residence under construction in Seneca at Talis Park. The interior design takes full advantage of the long-range water and double or triple fairway views afforded by Seneca’s choice lakefront home sites that showcase Talis Park’s hallmark “In the Park” living experience.
The 3,658 square feet under air Villa San Remo model’s floor plan features a spacious 29-foot by 20-foot great room, a formal dining room, a wet bar, a double-island gourmet kitchen and breakfast nook, a study, three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, an outdoor living area with a large covered terrace, gas fireplace, outdoor kitchen, pool and spa, and a three-car garage. The home’s covered entry opens to a foyer and wide gallery hallway that provide a see-though view of the great room, outdoor living area and pool, and Seneca’s spectacular views. The great room, study, and master bedroom all open to the outdoor living area to create a captivating indoor/outdoor living experience that pays homage to Seneca’s one-of-a-kind setting. Beautiful custom ceiling details will be found throughout the home. Construction of the Villa San Remo is expected to be completed by January.
Gebert and Herrera’s light, simply tailored look for the San Remo is designed to reflect the home’s open and airy floor plan. The floor and wall coverings will provide a foundation of soft grays, chromes, and creams with hints of citron. The flooring in the main living area will be a 9 x 36-inch wood-look ceramic tile in a soft cream that will continue into the dining room and study. A lovely, long gallery hallway just beyond the foyer will feature a coordinating solid 12 x 36-inch porcelain tile which, in combination with widely spaced columns, will define the entry into the great room.
The grand entry foyer affords immediate views through the columned gallery to the great room, pool, lanai, and panoramic views beyond. A wall niche will be stylishly adorned with faux wood wallpaper in varying tones of gray and beautiful artwork. Stepping into the gallery, the eye will be drawn to a display at one end where a magnificent wall covering by Elitis will provide an element of drama with its black background and artistic gold foil design.
To the left of the foyer, the open dining room is defined by elegant columns. A rectangular table with a contemporary chrome base and cream wood top will be complemented by casual looking upholstered chairs in a neutral linen with chrome nail head detailing. Beautiful sheer draperies in creams and taupes will soften the large window. A wall niche, decorated with faux wood wallpaper to match the foyer niche, will display exciting artwork.
Crossing the wide gallery into the tremendous great room, the sense of light airy space is evident everywhere. The ceiling will feature a suspended painted beam detail running front to back with extraordinary backlighting. A comfortable sofa in a neutral cream tone linen, accented with chic pillows in tones of gray, gold and cream, will face the television wall. Two upholstered chairs with a subdued gold geometric pattern on a cream background will add character while a soft gray rug will anchor the space together with two mirrored rectangular cocktail tables. The seating group will be arranged across from a console with a chrome base and a cream colored chagrin leather front with large circular chrome pulls. Overhead, a large wall-mounted television will be set against a backdrop of dove gray mica wallpaper. A narrow horizontal niche over the television will reveal a decorative planter while two tall niches on the right will showcase towering vases filled with organic displays.
The great room will flow seamlessly into a spacious kitchen with two counter-height islands that will provide an integrated sense of connection. The base cabinetry on the outer island will be executed in a dark graphite tone while the inner island and perimeter cabinetry will be finished in white with a pewter glaze. Distinctive granite counter tops will showcase intricate movement in pleasing light tones of creams and warm grays. Tying everything together, a glamorous specialty backsplash will feature a laser cut glass tile that produces the effect of a silver metallic figure eight against a soft white background. Simple, low-backed barstools will be featured at the outer island as well as at the wet bar located just off the kitchen. Gebert and Herrera will use the same granite at the bar, but with a backsplash in a dark reflective glitzy glass tile for added pizzazz.
A generous and comfortable breakfast nook with wide mitred glass windows will feature a square glass top table with an open wood base. Four wood framed chairs, upholstered in a neutral texture, will blend perfectly.
The high-ceilinged, oversized study at the rear of the home will feature an artful combination of two contrasting wallpapers, a chair rail, and high wainscoting for a warm sophisticated look. Tall custom built-in shelving displays will flank a floating desk in driftwood and metal tones. A leather study chair and two upholstered chairs will provide style, comfort, and practicality.
The covered lanai of the San Remo features three distinct areas for relaxing and entertaining. The area immediately off of the great room features a large conversation area that will include two curved gray sofas with patterned accent pillows in grays, creams, and golds, gathered around a matching circular gray ottoman. The dining area will feature a contemporary rectangular glass top table and six chairs in a woven gray metallic. The adjacent outdoor kitchen cabinetry will be finished in espresso with a countertop in a light gray leather finish. A second conversation area is located behind the study where a luxurious fireplace will provide the focus for four upholstered lounge chairs.
Entered through a private vestibule, the master bedroom showcases a striking color palette of black and cream. The upholstered bed with its tufted headboard and footboard will be flanked by nightstands in a combination of black wood and off-white leather. Dramatic drop lights will be attractively suspended over each nightstand. A long low dresser from the same collection will be positioned across from the bed with a television wall-mounted above.
The master bathroom will feature light ceramic tile, vanity cabinetry executed in glazed white, and luxurious countertops in the themed tones of white, cream, and gray. A free-standing tub will be flanked on either side by entries into a large walk-in shower where a listello detail in a chrome-look glass tile will add glamor. The wall covering will showcase a metallic troweled effect in shades of creamy grays.
