Vogue Interiors announced it has been selected to design and execute the interior design for Stock Signature Homes’ furnished Windsor model in the Salara neighborhood at the Esplanade Golf & Country Club of Naples, a community located approximately three miles east of I-75 on Immokalee Road that includes nearly 1,798 acres, 1,000 of which are preserves and wetlands and another 170 of which are devoted to lakes. The Windsor residence now under construction in Salara offers a flowing 4,155 square feet under air floor plan that includes three bedrooms, a fourth bedroom that can be finished to serve as a rec room, four-and-a-half baths, a great room, a study, formal dining room, gourmet island kitchen, a outdoor living area with a fireplace, outdoor kitchen, pool, and a spa, and a four-car garage. The Windsor will showcase an interior by Vogue’s award-winning designer Sheila Corasaniti, IDS.

Inspired by the essential elements of Florida, Corasaniti’s organic design will represent serene tranquility and a connection with nature. Her color palette will be light and soft with muted off-white walls to provide a clean background for fabrics and textures in shades of taupe, buttercream and silver blue to add a sense of the morning sun and gentle water. Metallic accents will add shimmery overtones. The hardwood flooring in the main living areas, study, and master bedroom will be executed in a soft driftwood tone. Distinctive ceiling details will be evident throughout the home.

In the foyer, a niche wall to the right will showcase a fascinating sculpture of organic wavy-edged wood draped over a sheet of glass. On a pedestal six-feet tall, this artful wood creation will have the mysterious look of flowing water. An opening on the left will look into the dining room.

The dining room will feature a wall niche where a pearl white built-in console topped with Calcutta gold marble will provide the foundation for a dramatic piece of art. A live-edge organic dining table with a natural brown finish and brushed nickel legs paired with tall contemporary wing chairs upholstered in white with nail head detailing will command attention. Contemporary, clean-lined white moldings will be applied to the walls for a chic accent.

The foyer and dining room will flow into the great room where the feature wall will be divided into three sections, the central section bumped out and defined by columns for added dimension. Three custom console built-ins will be installed at the base of each section. Finished in a mushroom colored taupe, the central console will feature drawers and open shelving while those on either side will have doors. A television will be wall-mounted over the central console. A lighted shelf above the central console will display accessories. In the background of each section, the wall will be finished in textured silver metallic wallpaper. The left and right sections will be further adorned with tiered light sconces and contemporary applied moldings like those in the dining room. Two handsome sofas in a pale blue velvet will be positioned perpendicular to the television, while two occasional chairs in a heavy beige linen will complete the U-shaped seating area. A cocktail ottoman in a metallic silver polished cotton with acrylic legs will be anchored by an extravagant shag rug in mellow shades of gray-blue, gray, gold, and brown. Carved driftwood cube stools upholstered in soft yellow will enhance the tableau, while pocketing sliders will open the entire space to the covered lanai and pool beyond.

To the right of the foyer, a barn door provides an entry to a study that will feature two built-in bookcases in a beige driftwood finish on either side of a floating metal-framed writing desk with a darker driftwood top. The walls will be covered in a warm taupe grasscloth with silver metallic threads. A spa blue occasional chair will provide guest seating while a chest in a silver hammered finish will add interest. A flat wool rug with a geometric pattern blending all the homes colors of taupes, butters, blues, grays, and white, will cover the floor while large artwork will adorn the walls.

Adjacent to the great room, the kitchen will feature a large pantry and generous counter height island. All cabinetry will be executed in a luxurious pearl white finish complemented by counter surfaces in glacier white for clean, streamlined appeal. Adding dimensional delight, a backsplash fashioned from Carrara marble in a chevron pattern will positively gleam.

In the breakfast nook, with its large semi-circular window offering views onto the outdoor living area, Corasaniti’s plan calls for a circular driftwood table with a silver metallic apron and lovely upholstered chairs in a soft spa blue with driftwood legs.

A hallway from the great room will lead to an exercise room with French doors opening to the covered lanai. The room will be carpeted in a tightly woven style for ease of movement. One wall will be mirrored while the others will be painted a pale blue-gray. A Pilates ballet bar machine will offer multi-discipline exercise opportunities together with a stationary bike and lifting bench with free weights.

Two distinct areas on the lanai will present a comfortable al fresco lifestyle. A fireplace adorned with stacked stone to the ceiling will be the focus for a lounging conversation area. The stacked stone, in a tone that matches the exterior flooring, will feature a 10-inch recessed band of smooth stone one third of the way up for interesting contrast. A curved sectional sofa and a matching easy chair will be arranged with a round cocktail table. A summer kitchen will feature cabinets in a silver birch finish topped with multi-colored granite in blues and browns, and a counter height bar with stools. Nearby, a handsome dining set will accommodate a large group. By the pool with its spa blue waterline tile, chaises lounge recliners will be complemented by a canopied cabana bed.

The serenely beautiful master suite will feature walls in the soft blue tone with a continuation of the driftwood flooring. A fabulous white upholstered sleigh bed with tufted nail head detailing will be adorned with gorgeous taupe linens and pillow accents in contemporary florals, silver metallics, and fur. The dresser and nightstands will be finished in soft white. In the dedicated sitting area, French doors will open to the lanai. Two settees in pale woven linen will face each other across a butter colored ottoman. Chrome end tables and a soft white and taupe rug will complete the sumptuous look.

High gloss porcelain flooring with the look of Carrara marble will set the tone for the sparkling master bath. His and her vanity cabinetry in pale gray will be complemented by subtle Cashmere Carrara quartz counters. Carrara marble will provide a border accent in the gleaming white shower. An elegant free standing tub will float in the middle of the room.

The Windsor will feature three guest bedrooms. The largest, at the rear of the home, will offer a wet bar with a granite backsplash between two storage closets. This room will offer easy access to the lanai.

Vogue Interiors announced that company Principal Debbie DeMaria, ASID, IDS and Interior Designer Salvatore Giso, IDS have completed the interior design for a single-family villa residence built by Gulfshore Homes in the Westlake neighborhood of the West Bay Club community in Estero. DeMaria and Giso’s design combines organic and textural elements to bring a carefree yet sophisticated and softly elegant feeling to the 3,137 square feet under air residence. The floor plan includes a massive living space that combines a great room, dining area, and a spacious island kitchen, three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a library/study, and a beautiful outdoor living area with a year-round kitchen, fireplace, pool and spa.

Inspired by the beauty of natural elements, DeMaria and Giso created an ambience that suggests easy elegance and free-flowing organic comfort. The color palette is founded on natural woods with taupes, beiges, and browns accented with fresh white that is featured as the predominant background color. Flooring throughout the living areas is executed in medium-toned raked oak which transitions to a white wide plank hardwood in the master bedroom and tile in the master bathroom.

The grand foyer presents a sense of arrival into a home that combines both elegance and casual charm. In the center of the wood floor, four large 24 x 24-inch marble-look tiles with mosaic inlay create a note of welcome. The foyer leads into a gallery hallway with a niche on each side. On the left, a dry bar features a four-inch profile to the edge of the creamy white porcelain stone counter. This material continues up the wall as a backsplash and offset dark espresso cabinetry. On the right, an architectural furniture piece creates a statement. The espresso-toned wooden base is topped with a black granite top with a three dimensional free-form chrome structure in the center for the look of sculptural metal art.

The powder bath features stacked tile shells in a mother of pearl with a chic linear presentation. A hammered platinum sink sits atop a custom scalloped demilune furniture piece in a silver scraped linen wood tone that blends perfectly with the shelving.

The gallery opens to the heart of the home with its spacious great room, dining room, and kitchen. A framed entertainment wall features a floating shelf in scraped wood with ottomans underneath for additional seating. An 80-inch television is set above the shelf along with two floating shelves that showcase sculptural pieces against a backdrop of chocolate brown mica wallpaper. To the left of the television area, a custom console accommodates the electronic control components for the home. The seating group radiates comfort with inviting textured neutral materials. An off-white sofa in a cream basket weave fabric is paired with two swivel chairs in soft metallic leather. DeMaria and Giso designed a cocktail table that includes a 30-inch goat skin table on casters that can roll along the length of a 64-inch ottoman for added comfort and versatility. Five equally spaced beams, stained in a color slightly darker than the flooring, adorn the length of the ceiling. Sliding glass doors open the living and dining rooms to the outdoor lanai.

The dining room showcases a remarkable table that provided the inspiration for the interior design concept. The table presents the appearance of a section sliced directly from a venerable tree. Its uniquely organic form is enhanced by large natural cracks punctuated by wooden butterfly insets. The table is finished in a dark tone and is 102-inches long, perfect for an informal arrangement of four chairs on each side. The chairs, upholstered in a pearlized white leather, create a lively contrast with the deep wood tones. Functioning as a buffet within a long wall niche, a console in an espresso finish with concave mirrored detailing complements the scene. Above it, an oversized free form mirror adds drama and dimension.

The kitchen features a spacious island where dark cabinetry is topped with weathered Taj Mahal granite. The bar stools are presented in a lighter wood tone used throughout the home. The perimeter cabinetry replicates the lighter wood tone to create contrast with the island. The perimeter cabinetry extends to the ceiling with the highest level designed as lighted display alcoves, each housing lovely sculptures. Along a side wall, a custom built-in that matches the perimeter cabinetry provides additional storage for small appliances as well as counter space in the Taj Mahal granite.

To the left of the foyer, a hallway leads to the study where the medium-toned oak wood flooring continues. The wall treatment is presented in a blend of bamboo and grass cloth while dark espresso cork is displayed in the ceiling coffer from which a striking chandelier is suspended. Two-toned cabinetry is featured on two walls. A sleek open desk extends along the entire length of the wall with floating cabinets above. The other side accommodates the television and ample cabinetry for equipment storage. The built-ins are complemented by a stylish chair, accent table and beautiful area rug.

The lanai offers enticing lake and golf course views. An outdoor kitchen features eye-catching cabinetry in a sandblasted two-toned silver metal with a rain textured inlay. On either side of the grill, leather granite countertops with black and brown striations extend for 20-feet. An informal gathering table and chairs contributes to the enjoyment of hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. A sectional sofa and chairs in a deep seat wicker with textural tweed tone upholstery are gathered around a linear fireplace encased in textural stone in variegated creams and browns. On either side of the fireplace, French doors lead into the master bedroom.

The master bedroom’s white wood floor is adorned with a laser cut cowhide rug. The bed is fully-upholstered in linen and flanked by nightstands in a taupy silver finish. Mirrors over the nightstands reflect the light from the French doors. Elegant white linen draperies with silver star metal studs of varying sizes add breezy charm. Across from the bed, a custom built-in dresser blends the room’s soft tones of natural wood and shimmery metallics and accommodates a 65-inch television and storage drawers.

A hallway from the bedroom displays a tile runner within the wood. Upon entering the master bathroom, the flooring transitions to the 24 x 24-inch marble-look tile in taupe tones with a matte finish that continues into the shower. His and her vanities feature rectangular marble vessel sinks complemented by light cabinetry and brown quartz counters. Tiered cabinets on either side provide additional storage. A free-standing tulip tub with flared edges is angled elegantly in one corner. A wall treatment in shades of hammered metal completes the tableau.

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.

Set against a foundation of ivory stone flooring, her concept includes soft champagne metallics with sophisticated layers of rich eggplant and purples blended with ivory tones for distinctive contrasts.

The Arianna’s open flow is immediately evident upon entering the home’s spacious foyer. Square painted columns define an airy dining room on the left as a grand hallway sweeps past to the great room and kitchen beyond. Three handsome rectangular coffered ceiling details, each adorned with metallic sheen eggplant grasscloth, mark the progression through this elegant space. Below, decorative 2 x 2-inch tile detailing in a blend of the ivory stone defines corresponding rectangles in the floor for harmonious balance. Striking chandeliers with the look of crystal and amethyst sunbursts are suspended from each coffer.

Suspended from the faux finished double coffer in the dining room, a large rectangular crystal chandelier illuminates a long glass-top table. The chairs are upholstered in a tone-on-tone white zebra pattern to contrast with a dark espresso finish on the wooden legs. A stylish mirrored detailing is applied to the back wall and includes a pair of attractive sconces.

An opening from the dining room leads into a well-appointed wet bar that also serves the great room.

The dynamic backsplash, in laser cut tiles of taupe and white, presents the look of a rounded diamond pattern. The bar is executed in Taj Mahal granite and features three dark-legged stools upholstered in an ivory fabric.

The spacious great room displays an elaborate ceiling treatment with back-lighted floating beams in a rectangular coffer. Pocketing sliders open to the covered lanai and offer spectacular south-facing views and beautiful natural light. A feature wall that incorporates a centered fireplace flanked by columns dominates the great room. The lower half of the fireplace wall is decorated with a repetition of the 2 x 2-inch stone tile detail found in the foyer while a mauve pleated metallic wallpaper adds a shimmery glow above. On either side of the columns, base cabinets in a soft taupe finish are topped with lighted glass cabinets to perfectly showcase objets d’art. The seating arrangement includes two swivel chairs in a neutral velvet and two large sofas arranged in an L-shape and upholstered in a soft ivory textured fabric. Each sofa is adorned with long kidney pillows in an ivory and amethyst leopard print. A beautifully textured rug in deep eggplant forms the foundation for a fascinating glass-topped cocktail table in silver fashioned to resemble a large spreading tree trunk. Two contemporary side tables in a gray finish with large chrome ring pulls complete the ensemble.

The great room flows easily into a comfortable kitchen featuring a generous island with food prep and entertainment space. The island’s base cabinetry is executed in a muted taupe while the perimeter cabinetry is finished in a soft off-white with a misty taupe glaze. The unified granite counters and backsplash present a vibrant swirling blend of white, light taupe, and brown tones. In the adjacent breakfast nook, angled mitred windows overlook Talis Park’s glorious tableau. A circular glass-topped table is paired with elegant tall chairs upholstered in amethyst metallic suede.

In the outdoor living area, Gebert created a congenial space suitable for entertaining a large family and guests. The summer kitchen’s cabinetry is finished in an espresso color that matches the tongue-in-groove ceiling overhead. On the counters and walk-up island bar, a serene granite in soft taupe adds contrast. A bistro table provides separate casual seating. Nearby, two 54-inch square tables in a dark brown outdoor rattan finish offer flexible dining whether joined together or set apart. Ten easily stored stackable chairs extend the dining options. An impressive fireplace wall is adorned with 20 x 20-inch tile in a deep taupe hue. The firebox features a contemporary rectangular design. Gathered around this relaxing conversation area, Gebert established a comfortable seating group for seven. A woven rattan sofa with decorative purple pillows and four swivel chairs is anchored by an outdoor rug in cream and purple zebra stripes.

In addition to the gentleman’s library, this residence features an enchanting lady’s study at the front of the home. The walls of this charming space are decorated with a silver and white grass cloth to blend beautifully with a pale amethyst and off-white rug. Overhead, a crystal and gold bubble chandelier adds panache. An ivory shagreen desk is paired with a velvet chair with Lucite legs. Enhancing the sense of feminine serenity, Gebert has included a customized day bed with beautiful velvet end bolsters.

Double doors lead into the vestibule of the master suite where a faux finished artwork niche creates an immediate sense of tranquility. The bedroom is decorated in soft creams, taupes, and champagne with a touch of metallic purple. An upholstered bed with a tall cream headboard showcases metallic wood detailing. A decorative mirror adorns the wall overhead. On either side, antique mirrored nightstands reflect the beauty of two contemporary squared-off dressers aligned to create one long piece in a platinum metallic finish. In the lady’s closet, Gebert installed wallpaper in a tone-on-tone large animal print.

The flooring in the master bathroom is executed in a rectangular taupe porcelain tile and provide a foundation for a softly textured off-white rug. His and her vanity cabinetry are finished in glazed ivory with granite countertops in soft beige. A stool with Lucite legs and a textured amethyst velvet seat adds dimension.
