Vogue Interiors announced award-winning designer Sheila Corasaniti, IDS completed the interior of Stock Signature Homes’ recently sold furnished model in Pine Ridge Estates in North Naples. Stock Signature Homes is the luxury homebuilding division of Stock Development. The home’s elegant and spacious floor plan offers 4,369 square feet under air plus an additional 1,084 square feet of covered lanai space. The great room plan features a formal dining room, a gourmet island kitchen and breakfast nook, study, exercise room, three bedrooms, a bonus room or fourth bedroom, three-and-a-half baths plus a pool bath, and two two-car garages. The model includes a fireplace and outdoor kitchen on the lanai as well as a pool and spa.

Corasaniti envisioned the residence as a serene coastal retreat finished in relaxed and soothing colors. She took her inspiration for the home from a chinoiserie printed fabric that depicts the colors and tones represented throughout the home in a color palette of soft sandy taupes with accents of powdery sky blues and tonal creams. Weathered Oak wood flooring runs throughout the home, including the main living areas, and the master bedroom.

A welcoming foyer presents an opening to the dining room on the left. On the right side of the foyer, an upholstered wall treatment and bench provide a note of welcome. The wall is fitted with upholstered panels in a subtly shimmering textured leather-like fabric and features a hand-applied bordered pattern of silver nail head trim. Sparkling silver metal sconces are mounted on the paneled wall to create a dramatic first impression.

A custom beamed ceiling detail is a design highlight in the spacious dining room that opens to both the foyer and to the great room. The dining room is painted a soft taupe background color that reappears throughout the living areas. One wall of the dining room features a deep custom built-in credenza with tall glass doors and applied molding from the chair rail to the floor. This statement piece is finished in a soft pale taupe. Pale cream opaque fabric panels with a touch of sparkle dress the windows and add a sense of intimacy to the room.

In the wood floored study, a custom built-in desk fills the wall on the left side. It is accented with floating shelves to showcase books and collected items. The window facing the front of the home is fitted with a metallic roman shade. A textured cream and taupe area rug anchors two contemporized wing chairs in a soft blue fabric with a cocktail table. The ceiling is accented with a taupe grass cloth.

An expansive feature wall in the great room is divided into three sections and accented with metallic blue grass cloth. The center section houses a console that is used for media component storage. Above the wall mounted television, applied molding is accented with a dimensional piece of art mounted in the center. Flanking this center unit are three-foot-wide by five-foot-tall mirrors which also feature applied molding details. A dramatic beamed ceiling detail echoes the ceiling treatment in the dining room. Pocketing sliders in the great room open to the lanai and the outdoor living space.

Both the island and the perimeter cabinetry in the large open kitchen are finished in a pale taupe color. The countertops are a dramatic porcelain product with a patterned surface featuring a soft cream background and abstract brushstrokes of gray. A subtle off-white glass subway tile is applied to the backsplash along the perimeter.

Adjacent to the great room and the outdoor space, the optional bonus room serves as a guest suite. A custom wall to wall built-in accommodates a bench that is illuminated by lighting to create a cozy area for reading that includes a refrigerator. The walls are painted a pale light taupe. The room features a queen wood paneled bed with metallic night stands accented with bedding and pillows in a palate of soft blues and taupe’s. French doors lead to the outdoor kitchen and dining area.

The entire outdoor living space is painted a soft off-white to complement an outdoor fireplace fashioned from light taupe chiseled stone. In addition to the beautifully appointed fireplace, a conversation area is situated just off the great room and the master bedroom sitting area. At the opposite end of the lanai, an outdoor kitchen features shaker style cabinetry, granite countertops, a gas grill, and a dining area.

A fully outfitted exercise room is located between the great room and the master suite and features double doors opening to the lanai. Professional grade exercise equipment has been installed on one wall where mirrored panels are trimmed out with wood framing. A taupe low pile carpet provides both comfort and quiet.

In the master suite, the wood flooring continues throughout the hall, his and her closets, and the bedroom. The room features a king size tufted upholstered bed accented by serpentine shaped night stands in an off-white finish with a matching dresser. The bed is dressed in a soothing color palette of creams, sky blue and taupe’s. The sitting area features two wing upholstered chairs in a soft blue fabric. Each chair is adorned with off-white fur accent pillows. An off-white accent table with a stainless-steel inlay and a large upholstered ottoman are positioned between the chairs. Anchoring the furnishings are off-white shag rugs. The ceiling features drywall painted beams to provide contrast and visual appeal. A private sitting area opens to the conversation area of the lanai.

The spa-like master bath showcases a high-gloss off-white floor with 24 by 24-inch porcelain tile and a sculptural free-standing tub. The vanity cabinetry is finished in a soft off-white and the countertops are cream marble with brushstrokes of pale blue, smoky grey and soft taupe. Subtle metallic accents appear in the wallcovering and in the shower tile and fixtures.

Vogue Interiors announced that award-winning designers Sheila Corasaniti, IDS and Salvatore Giso, IDS have been selected to design the interior of Stock Signature Homes’ Merano model residence at Lakewood Ranch. Along with 3,600 square feet under air, the Merano also features 868 square feet of covered lanai space. The spacious, highly livable floor plan includes three bedrooms plus a bonus room that can serve as a fourth bedroom, three baths plus a pool bath that also functions as a powder room, a study, a large great room, island kitchen, and dining area, and a three-car garage. The great room opens to a lanai with a year-round kitchen, fireplace, spa, and a pool with a sun shelf. The bonus room is being configured as a second master suite in the model.

Corasaniti and Giso have infused their design concept with natural elements such as live edge furniture pieces and a white birch tree that makes a striking statement in the great room. Their organic off-white and chocolate brown color scheme will be simple in color yet striking to the eye. The contrasting colors will be juxtaposed throughout the home. Off-white walls and high-gloss off-white porcelain tile flooring will provide a foundation for the juxtaposition with accessories and furnishings that reinforce the organic feeling.

The Merano’s double-door entry will open to a foyer with a niche wall featuring a substantial console table with an iron base that resembles tree branches holding up a slab of wood. The console will establish the natural feeling of the design. An attractive art piece will be set above the console. Another reference to nature will be made with a contrasting tile inset in the floor that will be set in a herringbone pattern intended to conjure the look and feeling of waves of water running in a stream.

Columns flanking the end of the foyer will announce the entry into the great room that will feature striking beamed ceiling details bedecked with a chocolate brown wall covering material that has a wood-like texture. A built-in on the feature wall will include brown cabinetry topped by a marble counter with down-lighting and media component storage underneath. The center section of wall above the marble counter will be framed out with chocolate brown boxes, a large box to accommodate the television, and three smaller boxes above the television for accessories. Off-white columns will define the television space. Soft off-white storage benches tucked under the counter that will extend to either side of the television wall treatment and white accessories will combine with the columns and off-white wall tones to provide a dramatic note of contrast to the television space’s deep chocolate brown tone. A larger floor-to-ceiling niche to the right of the television wall and built-in cabinetry will host the white birch tree and a third off-white column to the far right side.

The furnishings in the great room will be anchored by a chocolate toned shag rug that will contrast the off-white flooring. The majority of the furnishings are accented with chocolate brown against a soft velveteen, chenille style fabric, including an off-white chenille sofa and a pair of off-white side chairs. A single chair wood frame chair with a slatted back is finished with chocolate brown fabric. A highly unique 51 x 51-inch glass-topped cocktail table has a base fashioned with hundreds of individual vertical sticks of wood that have been joined together to form a solid base. Drum-like see through end tables with smoked-glass tops will have a dark finish. A sofa table will emulate the console piece found in the foyer.

The look in the dining area will continue the contrasting light and dark tones. The dark dining table will include a beveled edge with a painted platinum finish. The table will play against chairs with a similar platinum finish and clean white linen fabric. A light, airy blown glass and dark metal lighting fixture with the look of green bottle glass coins will be suspended over the table. Elegant off-white draperies will match the draperies flanking the sliders in the great room that open to the outdoor living area. An art piece or oversized mirror will grace the accent wall.

The kitchen’s island base and perimeter cabinetry will be presented with a light taupe finish topped by off-white granite countertops with wisps of dark brown, black and charcoal accent veining. The pendant lighting over the island will mimic the lighting fixture in the dining area. A backsplash on the perimeter will be finished with off-white marble subway tile.

Corasaniti and Giso will introduce equestrian references in the study, including a hair on hide rug in cream and brown tones and an oversized photograph of a rider on horseback. An elaborate ceiling detail features two suspended squares and beams that run front to back across the ceiling and then continue down the wall where they become part of the room’s shelving system. The beams contrast a cream-toned chagrin desk and the same off-white that are used throughout the home to soften each space while adding a subtle hint of texture.

The elegant master bedroom’s sitting area will include a pair of linen slipcovered chairs and open to the lanai’s conversation area and fireplace. While continuing the home’s chocolate brown and off-white color scheme, the bedroom will showcase a stunning headboard treatment applied to the wall and divided into four large rectangles upholstered in an off-white fabric. Beautifully executed custom bedding with a suede-like horn and buckle feeling will match the zig-zag pattern found on the pillows and also feature a border that matches the shams. Transitional clean-lined night stands with a bow front and a dresser with a bow front in the center section will be presented with an espresso finish, an intentionally simplified look that will not distract the eye from the stunning patterns featured in the bedding.

The large format off-white porcelain tile flooring will continue in the master bath where the vanity cabinetry will be presented in a light taupe tone with dark brown quartz countertops. The off-white tile continues into the shower that will include a wide vertical dark brown glass tile accent border. Off-white wallpaper will feature a linear, wavy texture.

A fireplace on the lanai will be finished with smooth stucco and river pattern 24 x 24-inch tile in a straight horizontal stack. A recessed area above the fireplace will accommodate a television that will float between stucco columns with smooth banding. The combination of the textures and the smoothness of the stucco will convey a contemporary feeling. An intimate sitting area at the fireplace and just outside the master bedroom will include a loveseat, two chairs, and a cocktail ottoman anchored by an area rug. A pair of sofas will provide a second sitting area just outside the great room. The summer kitchen’s cabinetry will be finished in a grey driftwood tone and will be topped by a granite counter. The dining table will seat six. A separate area on the pool deck will feature a fire pit and seating for four.
