Vogue Interiors announced that award-winning designers Leslie Gebert, Allied Member ASID and Sheila Corasaniti, IDS have been selected to create the interior design for Harbourside Custom Homes’ furnished Villa Adriana II model in the Cassina neighborhood at Miromar Lakes. The home’s 2,593 square feet under air open-concept floor plan includes a wide foyer and gallery entry hallway, a great room with beamed ceiling details, an island kitchen and spacious dining area, three bedrooms, three baths plus a pool bath, a study, and a two-car garage. Both the great room and dining area open to an outdoor living area with a fireplace, summer kitchen, and a pool and spa.

The Villa Adriana will be a sophisticated coastal home incorporating natural design elements of crisp white linens, butterscotch raffia, honey toned rattans, and accents of pale seafoam blue-green and creamy whites. Coastal inspired bright white tongue-in-groove ceiling details and wood-look light ecru porcelain tile will echo the sophisticated beachy feel. With a calm color palette inspired by coastal breezes, sandy beaches, and tranquil cloud swept skies, it will be a true Tropical retreat with an elegant ambiance.

In the long and dramatic entry, the floor will feature the same pale wood porcelain as the main areas and will be punctuated with transition bands of inset 2-inch by 2-inch stone details to mark the foyer at each transom point in the long fourteen-foot high hall. Tall brushed chrome and driftwood wall sconces will be mounted on either side of the pale grasscloth covered walls inside a rectangular wall detail of flat stock molding. Across from the entry to the study, a large vibrant original abstract painting in gold, buttercream and ivory tones will hang above a mirrored console.

The same pale porcelain flooring will continue into the study where the walls will be papered in a basketweave textured ivory grasscloth behind two open étagères filled with coastal-inspired eclectic accessories. A graceful one-drawer oval writing desk and an open weave cream leather desk chair will float in front of the window and two small club chairs upholstered in a pale blue-green and cream fabric will sit in the corners on top of a heavily textured natural sisal area rug in subtle variations of pale seafoam and sandy beige. Custom open-weave sheer panels in an unusual abstract camel and cream linen fabric will frame the windows.

The great room will have a feature wall with a stunning statement console in a washed oak finish with brushed nickel hardware. Each of the four doors on the console will have a huge vertical brushed nickel leaf shape which will extend all the way down to become the console’s legs. A flat screen television will be mounted above the console on a neutral grasscloth clad wall and will be flanked by two columns mounted with large scaled driftwood wall sconces in a soft champagne color. Opposite the feature wall will be a clean-lined camel suede fabric sofa with four decorative pillows, two in seafoam textured linen and ivory and two in a playful seafoam and buttercream print fabric. Two club chairs upholstered in the same pillow fabrics will face the sofa. Completing the seating area, a light wood and natural rattan armchair will have soft ivory textured cushions and sit on a herringbone flat weave wool and sisal area rug. The slider will be detailed with a white linen cornice trimmed in natural jute cording.

Over the long rustic washed-oak dining table in the great room, three oversized glass pendants will hang at different heights to provide dimension and drama to the space. The table itself will have custom panels that can be inserted for additional diners. Surrounding the table will be custom upholstered dining chairs with front panels of pale seafoam fabric and back panels done in a textured warm butterscotch raffia fabric. Sheer crisp white linen draperies will be mounted with jute cord inventively laced through brushed chrome grommets.

In the bright and open chef’s kitchen, the large counter-height island will feature base cabinetry finished in natural washed red oak and all countertops will be finished in a striking cream granite with a dramatic icy blue and pale green vein pattern which will continue up as the backsplash. All the perimeter cabinets will be done in a dimensional creamy off-white finish with transitional brushed nickel hardware to match the three glass and nickel pendants hanging over the island. Four counter-height ivory wood barstools with low backs will have seat cushions upholstered in the same seafoam and cream fabrics as the dining room chairs.

The serene master bedroom will be a true private retreat realized in pure tones of rich heavy cream and frothy seafoam. The modified wingback king headboard will be upholstered in a soft taupe felted fabric and the bed will be dressed in variations of off-white, cream and muted seafoam fabrics in an array of textures. Fresh white tongue-in-groove details will line the ceiling tray where a sparkling champagne chandelier will provide a romantic glow. Two large nightstands done in a soft cream finish will flank the bed across from a classic dresser in a sophisticated washed oak finish with transitional champagne metal hardware. On either side of the dresser will be a clean-lined armchair upholstered in a pale seafoam linen. Custom white linen draperies will hang against the misty pale seafoam walls and dress the doors to the outdoor living area. A large soft cream area rug will provide warmth to the wood-look porcelain floors.

Two generously sized walk-in closets will flank the hallway to the master bath where the flooring will transition to an oversized neutral porcelain tile and crisp white tongue-in-groove ceiling panels will create a coastal feel. Featuring a double vanity with creamy off-white cabinetry and an equally subdued cream granite countertop, the serene master bath walls will have pale seafoam green grass cloth shot through with a subtle pattern of glittering silver threads. The pale neutral porcelain tile will extend under the free-standing spa tub and into the large shower, then continue up the shower walls contrasted by an inset band of taupe glass tile.

The spacious outdoor living area will feature a fireplace wall of pale honey-colored porcelain tile designed to look like a dramatic sculptural stacked stone. A flat screen television will be mounted above the horizontal ventless gas fireplace. The seating area will face the fireplace and will include a loveseat with a chaise done in a warm honey resin wicker with soft seafoam and light ivory upholstery and contrasting accent pillows. A swivel chair done in matching fabric and a metal and glass end table will sit on a textured natural rattan area rug to anchor the space beneath a 60-inch ceiling fan. The adjacent rectangular dining table will feature slip-covered host and hostess chairs and four honey wicker dining chairs with cream and pale seafoam patterned fabric seat cushions. All the outdoor kitchen cabinets will have shaker style doors finished in a muted camel color and all countertops and backsplash areas will be done in a pale granite with lively honey and camel striations.

Vogue Interiors announced that award-winning designer Sheila Corasaniti, IDS has completed the interior design for Stock Signature Homes’ furnished Marigold model at the Isles of Collier Preserve, a 2,400-acre development by Minto Communities bordered on the south by Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, the north by Naples Botanical Garden, and the west by Dollar Bay. More than half of the 2,400 acres is dedicated to natural habitat and preserve areas connected by a network of biking paths and recreational trails with exercise stations and nature observation areas as well as blueways for kayaking. The community is just four miles east of downtown Naples on U.S. 41/Tamiami Trail East.

The Marigold floor plan includes 3,578 square feet under air plus an expansive covered lanai measuring 1,062 square feet. The plan features a spacious great room with an optional built-in entertainment center, a large gourmet island kitchen and breakfast area, a formal dining room, four bedrooms or three bedrooms plus an optional bonus room, a study, four-and-a-half baths, an outdoor living area with an optional fireplace, optional summer kitchen, a pool and spa, and a three-car garage. Pocketing sliders open the great room to the outdoor living area.

Corasaniti’s inspiration for the Marigold model was sparked by an unusual piece of jewelry made with rich emerald stones and bold cocoa colored beads. She has based her color palette on this fresh and exotic combination and set it against a background of soft pale taupe to create a home that combines the elements of comfortable living with a touch of elegance. Flooring throughout the main living areas is 9-inch by 36-inch pale gray and taupe tile laid in a staggered pattern to resemble a wood planked floor. The same tone of soft pale taupe is used on the walls of the main living areas with a slightly deeper hue in the ceiling trays. The combination creates a quiet backdrop for the rich jewel-toned accent colors of emerald, mocha, creamy ivory and soft aqua.

The Marigold’s welcoming entry foyer walls is clad in a dramatic and glittering emerald mica wall covering to create a show-stopping first impression. One entry wall has a horizontal installation of stacked diamond shaped mirrors reflecting the opposite wall where a colorful large contemporary artwork is hung. The foyer opens onto a long gallery that features a series of tray ceiling details. The flooring echoes the ceiling design with matching highly polished insets of Bianca Carrara stone running the entire length of the gallery.

In the generously sized great room, the feature wall showcases a custom built-in with decorative dry wall columns flanking a mocha console floating in the center. Above the console, the television is mounted on a wall covered in birch wood cork with a subtle silver metallic accent. The oversized and comfortable off-white linen sofa has two accent pillows done in an emerald and mocha leaf pattern and one accent pillow in an unusual metallic reptile pattern. Two club chairs in a soft light taupe chenille fabric also have mocha accent pillows. The large square cocktail table presents an antiqued mirrored finish and sits on a striking emerald shag area rug. The focal point of the great room is a dramatic six-foot-wide bronze chandelier fashioned in the shape of a floating tree branch.

In the adjacent dining room, the walls are a slightly darker taupe to create a more intimate dining experience. The niche wall on the left features a built-in for storage and a floating credenza in taupe with a bold decorative mirror hung above it. The dining table is finished in a dark taupe wood tone and will seat six. Custom designed dining chairs feature the creative use of vertical color blocking by having one third of the chair upholstered in off-white and two thirds of the chair in emerald.

The double-doored study features walls in the same lighter shade of java as the great room. The large window is incorporated into a custom built-in with two java finished bookcases and an upholstered window seat with accent pillows. A floating desk is finished in an innovative lacquered hide treatment with pale grays and darker areas of mocha. The high-backed desk chair is upholstered in a contemporary paisley fabric and two velvet club chairs flank a textured metal drum table.

A large kitchen island and all perimeter cabinetry are finished in a pale off-white Alabaster tone. The granite countertops present a lively mix of gray and taupe with a recurring hint of emerald. The backsplash is a pale putty glass tile in a high gloss.

Pocketing sliders open from the great room to the outdoor entertaining area where a full outdoor kitchen, seating area, and dining area flow comfortably under a covered lanai. The conversation area features two outdoor sofas and two club chairs that face the media wall. Grounding this area is a cocktail table in the shape of a river rock. The large outdoor kitchen includes a floating island with four counter height stools. Graphite gray shaker style cabinetry is topped with an Alaska white granite that features flecks of charcoal, grays and mocha. On the grill wall, the cabinetry and countertops are in the same finishes and all will have stainless steel accents.

The walls in the master bedroom are done in a soft pale taupe with darker taupe in the ceiling tray. A brushed nickel espresso poster bed features a custom white linen upholstered headboard and is flanked by two nightstands in an espresso finish with a large silver medallion on the front. A taupe chenille upholstered bench with nickel nail heads is positioned at the foot of the bed. All bed linens are done in a soft beige and offer accents of luxurious emerald and sequin details. The custom window treatments include a metallic sequin band along the top of the light beige fabric. A full dresser is presented in the same espresso finish as the nightstands and sits next to an emerald wing chair by the window.

The flooring in the master bath transitions into a matte off-white Bianca Carrara marble tile that extends onto the floor of the shower. The walls of the shower are in a highly polished version of the same marble with highly polished white banding accents. The serene bath has a subtle metallic wallcovering, off white cabinetry and Perla Bianca countertops. The free-standing spa tub sits below a glittering chandelier.

Vogue Interiors announced award-winning designers Leslie Gebert, Allied Member, ASID and Sheila Corasaniti, IDS have completed the design and execution of the interior of Harbourside Custom Homes’ San Michele II model residence at Miromar Lakes. The open, 3,693 square feet floor plan includes a spacious great room, a formal dining room, a large island kitchen and breakfast nook, four bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, a study, a flex room designed as the model’s lady’s study, an outdoor living area with a covered lanai, fireplace, outdoor kitchen, and pool, and a two-car garage and a one-car garage.

Gebert and Corasaniti’s sophisticated transitional design for the San Michele II model features a neutral background palette of soft light taupe punctuated with the bold use of ivory, black and metallic gold accents. Light toned hardwood floors run throughout the home to create a neutral and quiet stage for the home’s dramatic design elements.

Double entry doors open to a sweeping view running straight through a long gallery hallway and the great room to the outdoors and pool area. The foyer’s ceiling features three large rectangular trays with transitional hanging light fixtures. Soft taupe walls showcase a contemporary wood and stone console table with a deep, dark espresso finish and a honed travertine top in a medium tone. A large vibrant abstract painting executed in varying shades of creamy ivory, inky black and gold leaf hangs above the console. In the niche on the opposite wall, a dramatic 92-inch high contemporary sculpture offers a preview of the sophisticated interior of the San Michele II.

To the right of the entry, a large front-facing room is designed as a lady’s study where the wall details include tall vertical rectangular panels outlined by 1-inch by 4-inch flat molding painted the same soft taupe tone as the walls. A plush curved white sofa sits in front of the window and is accented with four dove gray pleated fabric pillows. Side tables in a brushed pewter finish flank the sofa across from an espresso lady’s desk with a brushed nickel base. In the corner, a comfortable curved back chair is upholstered in a subtle linen. On the light wood floor, an ivory and dove grey chevron patterned hide rug softens the room. Draperies on the front window are fashioned in an oversized damask pattern.
Custom columns define the feature wall in the formal dining room where textured wallpaper covers the center of the wall behind a stunning 90-inch circular starburst mirror in a bronze and black metallic finish. Six comfortable neutral upholstered dining chairs feature a chrome nail head design and surround a glass-topped dining table with a dark wood and stone base.

With an entry from the dining room, the granite-topped wet bar opens to the grand gallery and features lighted glass-front wall cabinets finished in a charcoal black. A stunning backsplash of 3-inch by 8-inch decorative tile runs behind the cabinets all the way to the ceiling. Composed of geometric shapes in tones of warm brown, midnight black and ivory, the backsplash creates an interesting masculine mood against the black cabinets. Counter height barstools with polished nickel bases are upholstered in a crocodile-textured ivory leather.

In the welcoming great room, an elaborate ceiling detail emphasizes the volume of the generous space. On the main entertainment wall, 24-inch wide panels of 4-inch by 4-inch gloss black ceramic tile are trimmed out in applied molding and run all the way up the wall. The tile panels flank the television wall which is finished in an intricately pleated neutral wallpaper. Custom built-out columns feature long modern metallic sconces beside a black media console in the center. Facing the media wall, a neutral linen sofa holds an assortment of accent pillows including black, ivory and gold color-blocked cowhide. Against the sliding doors to the lanai, two ivory leather club chairs are detailed with a chrome nail head design. Opposite the easy chairs, a long black bench showcases an ivory textured cushion. Four small black bunching tables with open sides and gold trim take the place of a traditional cocktail table. A luxurious shag area rug with a creamy ivory pile and subtle gold threads brings additional texture to the seating arrangement. At the windows, neutral linen draperies have a 30-inch band of ivory, black and gold heavily embroidered fabric at the bottom.

The open kitchen island cabinets are finished in rich black and topped with a lively black and white granite countertop. To provide contrast, the perimeter cabinetry is finished in an off-white neutral tone with brushed nickel pulls and a granite counter matching the island. The granite continues up the wall as the backsplash. Ivory leather counter stools matching those at the wet bar are used at the kitchen island.

The hardwood flooring continues into the den at the rear of the home, where driftwood finished built-ins flank a contemporary partners’ desk. Driftwood floating shelves hang above the desk on a wall finished with a textured grey cork wall covering. A contemporary office chair is finished in ivory leather. Two black wood-framed chairs with dove grey modern fabric sit beside a lamp table finished with gold metal legs and a reflective black top. Horizontally striped draperies feature a combination of gray, ivory, and black stripes alternated with stripes of sheer linen.

With a bold color palette of black, white and gold, Gebert and Corasaniti’s master bedroom design inspiration is sourced in a French fabric. The ivory silk fabric has random splatter patterns of black and gold and is used on the Euro pillows and as a throw at the foot of the bed. A curved headboard is upholstered in ivory velvet and the bedding includes an ivory velvet coverlet and black and gold embroidered pillows. Gold drapery hardware supports ivory sateen panels inset with bands of black fabric.

In keeping with current color trends, all of the hardware in the master bath is finished in a brushed gold. The vanity cabinetry presents a soft off-white finish against pale granite countertops. Soft ivory tile flooring extends into the shower and is accented by a neutral glass tile.

Three black woven wicker outdoor loveseats with ivory cushions are grouped in front of the lanai’s fireplace and media wall where horizontally stacked 18-inch by 36-inch taupe tile offers a contemporary look. The rectangular dining table has an ivory base and a granite tile top in tones of ivory and warm brown. Six black woven wicker dining chairs are finished with ivory upholstered seats. Charcoal cabinetry fills the grill wall above an ivory and black granite countertop. Nearby, a black bistro table and four matching swivel barstools serves as a bar. By the pool, four black loungers with ivory fabric contrast gold metallic Chinese garden stools set between them.
