Bonita Springs-based Vogue Interiors announced it has been selected to design and execute the interior design for Stock Signature Homes’ furnished Madison model in the Collingtree neighborhood in Country Club East at Lakewood Ranch. Vogue’s Sheila Corasaniti, IDS and Salvatore Giso, IDS are creating a relaxed interior with a calm color palette for the 2,947 square feet under air, four bedroom, four-and-a-half bath residence. The great room floor plan includes a study, a gourmet island kitchen, a dining room with 90-degree pocketing sliders that open to an outdoor living area with a summer kitchen, pool, and spa, and a three-car garage.
Taking their initial inspiration from a fabric featuring an embroidered floating water lily leaf, designers Corasaniti and Giso have based their concept on the calming and relaxing qualities of water. Inspired by the ever-changing aspects of water, the home will have a serene and relaxing ambiance realized in the tranquil neutral color palette of soft cream, light natural taupe, and rich chocolate brown. Accents of a soft gray blue and warm vanilla will add to the overall quiet elegance of the design. Tile flooring in a light toned weathered wood design will be used throughout the home, with a darker accent inlay in the foyer and a reverse pattern in both the study and in the gallery.
Upon entry to the home, the right wall of the foyer will feature an elegant weathered wood console with a large beautifully crafted metal leaf design on the front, contrasting the earthy wood and the hard metal textures. Above the console, a large mirror in a weathered wood frame will reflect the stunningly colorful artwork mounted on the left wall. An oversized tall and narrow open ironwork chandelier will complement the amazing sense of light and volume in the entry space. The foyer flows directly into the grand gallery hallway, an impressive 18’ high space with two tray ceilings with intricate architectural details and a darker toned reverse patterned flooring that will echo the design direction of the ceiling. Two softly shaded chandeliers will highlight the impressive height of the gallery and illuminate the artwork on the walls. This space creates a sense of arrival as you approach the great room.
The great room will feature a media wall with an open seaglass console showcasing a creamy Travertine top. A flat screen television will be mounted above the media console on a wall covered in a dramatic highly textured metallic toned bronze and chocolate wallpaper that mimics the look of fine grained leather. Two cozy and comfortable soft gray-blue club chairs will be set on a creamy soft modern shag rug facing a sophisticated oversized sofa upholstered in a luxurious pale cream herringbone fabric. The richly embroidered accent pillows on the sofa will be in the designers’ original inspirational lily leaf fabric in velvet. The clean and modern look will continue in the metal base cocktail table inlaid with a patterned white driftwood finish, again highlighting the contrast of textural elements. Further seating in the great room will be provided by two sporty and masculine settees in a rich chocolate brown mohair fabric. The settees will face the great gallery hall and the pool area on either side of the sofa and will be complemented by richly striped accent pillows containing all the colors in the home’s palette. Here, as in all areas of the home, generous cream gauze fabric panels will dress all the windows to create soft light and relaxing movement.
In the study, a lighter and more feminine sensibility will take over. An impressive cream shagreen desk with gold cast metal legs will take center stage in front of a huge mirrored wall designed with both horizontal and vertical patterns. Fronting the mirrored wall will be two geometric bookcases in a white chocolate finish. The interesting architectural shape of the bookcases will be in the form of stacked boxes cascading from smaller on the top to larger on the bottom. Across from the desk two whimsical horn design club chairs in a pale vanilla toned fabric will flank a metallic gold drum table.
Open to the great room, the kitchen will feature a large pantry and wide counter-height island. All cabinetry will be finished in an elegant deep cream finish with subtle natural taupe striations. The cabinetry will be complemented by gleaming quartz counter surfaces in soft cream with rich chocolate and taupe details throughout. Adding dimensional intrigue to the kitchen, the backsplash will be an unusual three dimensional design comprised of overlapping small cream tiles creating the illusion of cascading movement and texture and referencing the designers’ original water inspiration.
In the dining area just off the kitchen, large windows will offer expansive views onto the outdoor living area and the pool. The romantic dining design plan will include a large round dining table with an inlaid metal pedestal base and espresso toned finish. Six comfortable open back espresso dining chairs will be fitted with a luxurious creamy linen fabric. A large round center detail in the ceiling will feature a backlit cove designed to create an unusually effective soft glowing atmosphere for entertaining.
The lanai will present a flexible and comfortable outdoor entertaining area. An outdoor gas fireplace will be the gathering place for casual entertaining on two sofas accented with deep espresso and cream pillows. Outdoor dining will seat six at a rectangular table with dining chairs sporting light cream cushions. Directly outside the master suite, an intimate conversation area will feature four open weave barrel chairs with complementing drinks tables. The conversation piece of the lanai will surely be the Tropical resort cabana bed on the corner of the pool deck. The large round daybed is centered by a built in cocktail table and a whimsical sculptural canopy rises from one side to hover over the top of the bed.
The serene master suite will feature walls in soft vanilla tones with a continuation of the driftwood flooring. A dreamy king canopy bed will be dressed with a textured solid cream coverlet accented by multiple throw pillows in a metallic leafy pattern and in a geometric chevron patterned fabric. The stunning bed will have light wood corner posts, an ironwork canopy and upholstered inserts of cream linen. Nightstands will be in a lighter taupe wood with fretwork inserts on the front and the dresser will be a darker toned taupe wood. Two flax club chairs will flank a drum accent table by the doors to the lanai. The master bedroom windows will be dressed in breezy light cream chenille gauze panels for romantic dreams.\\
The expansive master bath will boast a high-gloss Carrara look flooring and shower in a pale cream. Transitional off white cabinetry will be topped with Diana Royale marble countertops. Shower details will include glass and stone listello accent tile that will incorporate the cream, blue gray and taupe colors of the home. An elegant free standing spa tub will float in the center of the luxuriously appointed room.
