Vogue Interiors announced it has completed the design and execution of the interior of Stock Signature Homes’ Windsor model residence at Quail West. The Windsor is one of over twenty furnished models being showcased during the 2015 Joint, Single-Site CBIA-LBIA Parade of Homes being held at Quail West today and Friday, February 6 through Sunday, February 8. Hours on Fridays and Saturdays are 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sundays 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Windsor model’s elegant, 4,155 square feet under air great room floor plan includes a formal dining area, a gourmet island kitchen and breakfast area, a study, three bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, an exercise room, a club room, an outdoor living area with a fireplace and summer kitchen, and two two-car garages.

Vogue’s Sheila Corasaniti, IDS has created a serene, comfortable interior style to accentuate the Windsor’s architectural design that includes numerous ceiling details and applied moldings. Her exceptionally soft color palette includes pewter, pale grey, celery green, and off-white tones with celery green, apricot, silver and metallic accents. White porcelain tile with grey veining in the living areas conveys a Carrara marble look, while the weathered grey tones of the porcelain tile in the study has a wood-like feeling.

Visitors to the Windsor are greeted in a foyer flanked by niches with a beaded grass cloth wall covering in a soft celery tone. Each of the niches features impressive art pieces. The foyer provides a view through the great room’s pocketing sliders of the Windsor’s grand outdoor living area and pool. A feature wall in the great room includes two columns framing a wall-mounted television. Each of the columns includes sconce lighting fixtures. A wet bar is situated to the right of the television wall. To the left, Corasaniti has created a low built-in with a pewter finish and a white granite top with flecks of grey. A shelf for displaying collectibles is set on the wall above the built-in.

A white sofa with soft ribbed chenille fabric, contemporary tufting, an attractive channel back design detail, and large decorative pillows provides a focal point in the great room’s conversation area. Other furnishings include light white open-sided chairs, a chrome and glass cocktail table with a geometric pattern on the legs, one glass end table with a wood shelf in a washed grey finish, a second tiered end table in an ivory finish with chrome, and a beautiful textured shag area rug.

The dining room showcases the Windsor’s extensive use of applied molding details. The walls above a chair rail are finished in a dark charcoal grey while applied moldings create contemporary wainscoting panels below the rail. A rectangular all-wood pedestal dining table is finished in a cool grey with a metallic overlay and surrounded by chairs with pewter finished legs and grey-toned fabric. Corasaniti has selected a built-in with a cream finish and a light neutral granite to fill the room’s niche wall. A beautifully designed mirror is hung above the built-in. Cream-toned silk draperies complete the look.

Corasaniti finished the kitchen’s large counter height island with a light grey base that plays against white perimeter cabinetry. Counter surfaces throughout the room are white granite with specs of light celeries and greys. Clean-lined high-back barstools line the island and are presented with a striping effect using cream vinyl and chrome. The kitchen also includes a walk-in pantry with a door finished to appear as an extension of the cabinetry.

The adjoining breakfast nook is defined by a semi-circular window overlooking the outdoor living area. Corasaniti furnished the space with a glass-topped pedestal table and chairs executed in an oatmeal linen fabric with chrome nail head trim and wooden legs with a smoked finish. A contemporary lighting fixture with wavy textured glass is highlighted by a chrome band.

Corasaniti has designed the Windsor’s club room to convey a decidedly masculine feeling with numerous textures and details. The room includes a full wet bar with a granite countertop, dark-toned cabinetry, bar sink, and beverage refrigerator. A television is hung above the bar. Closets with French doors painted in the trim color flank the bar to provide a den-like feeling. A dark-toned, wood-like tile floor and a coffered ceiling with a velour-like smoky grey wall covering detail contribute to the masculine feeling of the space. Matching oversized contemporary wing chairs with a pinstripe pattern flank a console presented in a charcoal, weathered wood look. Additional seating is provided by a light grey sofa with hide pillows.

A beautiful custom built-in brings both elegance and functionality to the study. Lower closed filing cabinetry is finished in a cream tone with a grey top, while the built-in two-toned desk features a cream top and silver metallic legs. Open bookcases are set above the lower cabinetry. The desk chair is in a washed driftwood with a medallion pattern. An accent chair presents a wavy pattern also reflected in a cornice board that includes side panels with a silver metallic fabric.

Just off the hallway leading to the master suite, the Windsor’s exercise room offers a full complement of workout equipment, including a stationary bike, an elliptical machine, free weights, an exercise ball, a yoga mat, jump rope, a bench to sit on, and mirrored walls. Corasaniti has covered the walls with a faux leather and used a tight, low nap Berber carpeting with soft cushioning on the floor. Double doors open the space to the outdoor living area.

Corasaniti has created an exquisite contemporary upholstered bed with grey metallic tufted linen fabric and crystal Swarovski nail head details in a diamond pattern for the master bedroom. Matching night stands with mirrored-front drawers and a dresser are presented in a cream finish. An elegant sunburst mirror is set above the dresser. Matching pearlescent faux leather chairs with chrome arms and legs flank a metallic-silver table in the sitting area.

The master bath features light, two-toned greyish-taupe and white porcelain tile flooring, a free-standing tub, contemporary mirrors, and sconce lighting. The vanity cabinetry is finished in a light cream tone with light creamy granite countertops and chrome fixtures. Tile designs with reflective metallic and silver materials are presented in the shower.

The Windsor’s expansive outdoor living area reflects Stock’s penchant for creating inviting outdoor spaces. Corasaniti has chosen swivel lounge chairs and a sofa for the conversation area in front of a fireplace that has contemporary woven frames in a pale driftwood color and light sail cloth fabric with apricot and celery accent pillows. The fireplace wall is presented in an alternating horizontal pattern of textured cream chiseled stone and smooth stone. The outdoor kitchen’s backsplash presents a similar pattern and complement a chiseled stone detail on the back wall. The kitchen includes an L-shaped counter-height island with a granite counter surface and barstools in a weathered grey metal.

Vogue Interiors announced that award-winning interior designer Leslie Gebert, Allied Member, ASID, has completed the interior design of a luxury residence built by Artisan Associates in Marsala at Tiburon that features an architectural design by Stofft Cooney Architects. Gebert’s elegant design brings a sense of timelessness to the home’s 4,306 square feet under air two-story floor plan. The plan includes formal living and dining rooms, an expansive double-island kitchen and family room, a study, four bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths including a pool bath, a multi-purpose upstairs loft, a large covered lanai with a summer kitchen, bar, and fireplace, and a three-car garage that has been finished as a mechanic’s work space where the owner is free to pursue his passion for antique car restoration.

Gebert’s design incorporates various new and existing furniture pieces and the owner’s antique Oriental rug and Lladro porcelain figurine collections against a soft color palette that includes beiges, golds, and reds. Porcelain tile flooring is featured throughout the living areas while the study presents a dark-toned wood floor. A central staircase showcases painted risers contrasted by walnut-finished treads.

The grandness of the residence is evident upon entry to a soaring two-story foyer that is finished in a creamy white. A lightly distressed decorative chest with gold metallic accents is set in a niche painted a soft khaki color and bedecked with an attractive art piece. A circular Oriental rug from the owner’s collection provides an additional note of welcome.

The foyer leads to a spacious living room with a fireplace and a see-through view of the pool and Marsala’s hallmark natural setting. A pair of columns is used to distinguish the boundaries of the living room and an adjacent formal dining room. Nine ceiling coffers set in a 3 x 3 pattern are finished with crown molding and painted to match the khaki tone in the foyer niche. A large silver and gold chandelier contributes to the elegance of the space. A ten-by-thirteen-foot red, cream, and gold Oriental rug provides the basis for the living room’s color scheme. Built-in glass library-style display shelves showcasing the owner’s Lladro porcelain figurines are set in arched niches that flank a gas fireplace with a traditional stone mantle and a decorative mirror. The top-lighted shelving is presented against a metallic gold cork wallpaper. Furnishings include a slubby beige sofa with curved arms, a French chair and ottoman in a gold chenille fabric, a large swivel chair in a neutral chenille fabric that is placed next to a baby-grand piano, and a circular cocktail table with a wooden base accented by a gold band and a glass top. A mirrored console table is placed behind the sofa. Walnut end tables on either side of the sofa showcase gold specialty lamps with hand-painted silver and gold paper shades. Three sets of double French doors leading to the outside are framed by a tailored metallic gold pleated linen window treatment with red gussets.

A smaller version of the living room’s silver and gold chandelier combines with country-French furnishings and a red Oriental rug to create an elegant and very large formal dining space. Gebert brought additional elegance and visual appeal to the space by designing a hexagonal flat ceiling treatment finished to match the metallic gold cork wallpaper in the living room’s niches. Drapery fabrics that match those used in the living room are presented with a swag treatment.

The home’s massive double-island kitchen features cream-toned raised panel island bases and perimeter cabinetry with creamy Colonial Gold counter surfaces and a cream-toned rectangular subway tile backsplash. Black leather barstools are set at the counter-height outer island and offer a gathering place while entertaining. An adjacent breakfast nook includes a distressed country French circular table and seating for four.

The kitchen’s color scheme is continued in the family room where Gebert has chosen to incorporate various black elements to provide contrast. A twelve-foot ceiling contributes to the room’s spacious feeling. The feature wall showcases a cream-toned console, large television, and an attractive art piece. Linen draperies framing a pair of double French doors include a black linen leading edge and red and black eyelash fringe that creates character. A cream-toned linen sofa, red leather recliner, matching side chairs with beige and black tweed on the outside and beige chenille on the inside, and a square cocktail table are set against a red, black, and cream area rug. The family room opens to a covered lanai where there is a conversation area with a sofa, side chairs, and a card table as well as a dining area adjacent to the summer kitchen. The pool’s soft blue tile picks up the tones of the upholstery on the outdoor space’s furnishings.

The study’s dark hardwood flooring plays against a beamed ceiling detail with a coffer finished in the same color as the ceiling and creamy Navaho white backgrounds with white trim. A tall, narrow French display piece finished in black is set against a long wall and includes a television. On the opposite wall, a cream colored velvet sofa with salmon-red piping complements an area rug with similar cream and salmon-red tones. Off-white embroidered linen draperies include red fret work. A narrow desk and chair set in front of the windows provides a place for computer use.

The walls of the master suite’s substantial vestibule are accented with captivating art pieces. A dark gold cut-loop pattern rug plays against the bedroom’s dark beige wall and ceiling tone. Gebert has created an interesting applied molding detail to complement a tufted velvet, straight-lined upholstered headboard. The detail includes vertical pieces that extend from the floor to just below ceiling height, a chair rail dropped slightly from ceiling height, and two horizontal rows of molding that run all the way around the room. Distressed wood night stands featuring antique mirrored drawers with a fret work overlay are placed adjacent to the vertical applied moldings. The custom bedding is presented in cream and gold tones and includes a large decorative pillow that extends the width of the king-sized bed. Draperies divided into beige horizontal sections top and bottom and a gold horizontal section in the middle play against a large distressed wood dresser flanked by soft beige, gold and aqua blue art pieces. Matching upholstered skirted chairs with a beige tone-on-tone fabric provide seating at a window overlooking the outdoor living area that can be accessed by a French door.

The master bath’s soft cream and gold Travertine flooring is also used on the tub deck and complements the room’s muted ivory backgrounds that include nicely sized metallic gold medallions. His and her vanities include granite counter surfaces. The shower’s floor and walls are also finished in the soft, creamy Travertine with a matching four-inch by four-inch Listello and a stone rope molding detail that provides texture.
