Vogue Interiors announced that award-winning designers Leslie Gebert, Allied Member, ASID and Sheila Corasaniti, IDS have completed the interior design for Harbourside Custom Homes’ furnished Seabrook model at Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club. The 3,382-square foot single-story Seabrook great room floor plan includes three bedrooms plus a bonus room that can be used as a fourth bedroom, four-and-a-half baths plus a pool bath, a study, a spacious island kitchen and dining area, and a three-car garage. The great room and dining space open to an outdoor living area with a fireplace, summer kitchen, conversation and dining areas, and a pool and spa.

Gebert and Corasaniti have created an interior that offers an easy elegance with free-flowing organic comfort. A combination of textural materials and fresh white backgrounds is punctuated by beige, taupe, and grey tones and by judiciously placed chocolate accents. Wood-look porcelain tile flooring in the living areas is presented in a soft ivory tone to continue the design’s light, bright feeling.

Upon entry, visitors will immediately be struck by the Seabrook’s elegant foyer that conveys a sense of soft light and spacious symmetry. An upholstered wall feature blends a natural leather texture with metallic pearlescent tones highlighted by dramatic bronze sconce lighting fixtures. Above, a chandelier is suspended from a vaulted ceiling and accentuates the airy ambiance that defines the design motif.

A wide hallway leads to the living area where elaborate exposed beam ceilings, including a dramatic vaulted ceiling with floating beams in the kitchen, create one of the home’s few darker color references. Natural textures and modern metallic elements combine to provide a mix of soft and hard accents. The great room’s feature wall is divided into three niches with metallic taupe wallpaper backgrounds. The center niche hosts a decorative wooden media cabinet finished in a textured dark taupe with a television and floating shelving above. The two flanking niches feature opposing abstract art pieces that capture the design’s color pallet. A soft white woven fabric sofa facing the feature wall is accented by decorative pillows that also reflect the home’s color palette. Two wooden framed leather side chairs done in a medium brown color sit adjacent to the sofa and feature decorative pillows covered with a geometric pattern in light taupe and warm chocolate tones. A transitional fully-upholstered tweed swivel chair presented in a light taupe color is also included. The furnishings are grouped around a traditional 55-inch circular Asian chow-style walnut cocktail table set atop an exquisite Oriental rug that is one of the room’s most memorable elements. Bamboo fibers bring a captivating sheen to the rug’s muted white, light taupe, beige and grey tones. An additional natural element is provided by a decorative table covered in textured petrified wood. Open weave sheer fabric window treatments bring an additional sense of lightness and texture to the space.

A wet bar situated adjacent to the great room and kitchen features contemporary metal cabinetry in a dark tone with oversized hardware and softly backlighted cubbies that display delicate ivory art pieces. The bar’s quartzite counter surface plays against a backsplash that mixes glass and stone elements presented in taupe tones.

Rather than utilizing traditional overhead lighting in the kitchen, Gebert and Corasaniti incorporated recessed square LED lighting to create a soft ambient effect that does not detract from the dramatic vaulted ceiling and floating beam details. The island’s base cabinet mimics the bar’s dark contemporary metal cabinetry and is topped by a quartzite countertop with a waterfall edge. The lower cabinets along the perimeter are finished in a textured light taupe tone to compliment a quartzite counter surface and a backsplash that matches the wet bar’s glass and stone presentation. The upper cabinetry is finished in a contrasting darker taupe and includes open lighted cubbies at the top that display soft white accessories.

The dark, exposed beam ceiling detail continues in the dining area. A stunning 96-inch oval dining table with a glass top sitting on a structural metal base provides a design highlight. Replicating shafts of wheat gathered for the harvest, the base immediately catches and holds the eye. The table is surrounded by eight walnut finished wood framed chairs covered with a taupe-toned woven fabric. Overhead, a unique lighting fixture includes a series of blown-glass orbs with an amber finish accentuated by dozens of blue glass insets. Ninety-degree pocketing sliders allow two walls of the dining space to be fully opened to the lanai and outdoor living area.

To provide the home with an element of flexibility, the study is designed to accommodate a king-sized bed that disappears into a cabinet on one of the walls. The bed cabinet is flanked by decorative mirror treatments and sconces. Warm, taupe-toned cabinetry with a quartz top runs the length of the opposite wall and serves as a desk. A window height trim detail is set around the perimeter of the room. The wall space above the trim is finished with a taupe vinyl wall-covering that looks like silk. The walls below the trim are painted a deeper shade of taupe. Linen draperies with soft taupe and white patterns complete the look.

A hallway in the master suite is outfitted with two full-length mirrors and serves as a dressing area located just outside the suite’s two walk-in closets. The bedroom is finished in varying tones of white. A linear upholstered bed features a dimensional headboard covered in a pearlescent ivory vinyl designed to incorporate four wide vertical channels. The headboard wall is covered with taupe-toned textural moiré wallpaper that has a bit of a contemporary feeling. Dark walnut nightstands with mirrored drawers flank the bed. Three large graduated walnut chests serve as an anchor for a dramatic tryptic art display. A contemporary acrylic chandelier and oversized mercury lamps on the nightstands illuminate the space.

The master bath’s porcelain tile flooring is complimented by a taupe wall-covering with sparkling champagne flecks. The vanity cabinetry is light white and topped by a quartz countertop. The rectangular walk-in shower features three clear story windows separated by a stone and glass tile detail set in a chevron pattern. A chandelier is suspended from the ceiling in front of a free-standing tub situated by a window.

The outdoor kitchen features warm espresso cabinetry with a light cream granite countertop. A full granite backsplash highlights the grill wall. A white contemporary dining table with a glass top is surrounded by eight modern woven chairs done in a chocolate brown. An oversized chocolate brown sectional sofa is centered in front of a linear fireplace and is complimented by an ottoman tray table. To the left of the fireplace, recessed niches are finished with large chocolate brown panels with geometric design accents.

Vogue Interiors announced that award-winning designers Leslie Gebert, Allied Member, ASID and Salvatore Giso, IDS are creating the interior for Harbourside Custom Homes’ Villa Adriana II furnished model at Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club. The home’s 2,742 square feet under air floor plan features a spacious great room, island kitchen, and dining area. The great room and dining space both open to an outdoor living area with a fireplace, outdoor kitchen, conversation and dining areas, a pool with a sun shelf, and a spa. The plan also includes three bedrooms, a study, three full baths plus a pool bath that also serves as a powder room, and a two-car garage.

Gebert and Giso have created a comfortable ambiance that showcases a neutral color palette. Cream colored backgrounds will be accented with mocha, creamy taupe, and soft salmons. The floors in the living areas will be finished with very light creamy taupe ceramic wood-look tile presented in varying widths. Beautiful ceiling details have been included throughout the home, starting with four six-inch pop-ups in the entry foyer that gradually step-up to a flat panel at the top. A chrome lighting fixture with a cream paper shade will be suspended from the unique ceiling treatment. The entry foyer will be flanked by niches each finished with six vertically set 30 by 45-inch mirrored panels that will reflect to infinity. The mirrored panels will be separated by a flat panel trim detail.

The long entry hallway leads to a second foyer outside the study that features a niche opposite the study’s doorway. The niche wall will be finished with a cream and chocolate grass cloth with metallic threads. An espresso toned chest with cream finished drawers and agate poles will be set in the niche. A large abstract art piece will be set above the chest. Gebert and Giso have included a beautiful octagonal tray ceiling detail in the study. Beige silk wall-covering will combine with a wood and copper finished metal desk with banding that wraps across the desk’s medium-toned wooden top and down the sides, a desk chair with copper metal legs and textured chocolate and coral fabric, and a pair of mid-century side chairs with cream fabric and medium-toned wooden legs as well as cream, beige, and metallic gold cow hide accent pillows. Sheer draperies will be presented with soft coral, flesh-toned, and taupe horizontal strips against a cream background. The finials will be wrapped with creamy raffia. A 5 by 8-foot area rug that graduates from a cream tone to a darker beige will anchor the space.

The spacious great room will also feature an octagonal tray ceiling detail along with a 72-inch brushed nickel ceiling fan. The room’s feature wall will provide the design’s most prominent memory point. The wall will be finished with a soft, light brown wood veneer in a chevron pattern. Artful LED lighting will be hidden behind uniquely shaped bump-outs and provide attractive backlighting. An espresso-toned media cabinet with cream finished drawers will feature stylized brushed nickel on the legs that will be presented in a wave pattern that extends across the lower front of the cabinet. A large television will be mounted above the cabinet. Furnishings in the great room will include a sofa with a matte velvet soft salmon and cream-toned fabric and four flesh-toned accent pillows, an angular cocktail table with a cream-toned wooden top and linear stepped polished chrome legs, a pair of side chairs with darker toned wooden legs and embroidered silk fabric with a raised pattern, a medium-toned wooden lamp table, an angular chrome and glass lamp table with a unique raised top, and an accent chair with neutral fabric and curved arms that mirror the wave pattern on the media cabinet. An 8 by 10-foot area rug in a mocha cream pattern anchors the arrangement.

The kitchen’s glazed rift-cut wooden perimeter cabinetry will be presented in a very soft beige color and topped with a cream-toned quartz countertop. A wet bar will be set at the end of the perimeter that is adjacent to the great room. The island base cabinet will match the perimeter cabinetry and will be finished with an exotic granite Bianca countertop. A rectangular stepped ceiling detail over the island will feature backlighting. Smoky glass pendant lights will be suspended from the ceiling and centered over the island. Four medium-toned wooden barstools will be finished with coral and gold metallic leather.

In the adjacent dining area, a long dining table will feature a soft beige lightly distressed painted wood finish. The frames of the dining chairs will have a matching finish and play nicely with the chairs’ coral and brown fabric. The sheer draperies in the dining area and great room will be presented in a light brown tone with an elegant scalloped leading-edge band.

In the master bedroom, Gebert and Giso have included cream and soft salmon woven fabric draperies with a slight sheen in the darker areas. The bedroom walls will be finished in a taupe tone that is slightly darker than the walls throughout the living areas. An upholstered winged headboard will be finished with a textured light beige fabric. The bed will be flanked by cream-toned nightstands with darker striping. A dresser will be presented in a matching finish. Two soft beige chenille chairs will play against a textured shag rug and a stunning glass chandelier. A hallway leads past two large walk-in closets to a master bath finished with a captivating pearlized cream origami wall-covering and 12 by 24-inch linen porcelain tile in a soft taupe color. The bronze metal vanity cabinet will be topped with a brushed white quartz countertop. The entire back wall of the master bath will be finished with a glass mosaic tile. A free-standing tub will be placed in front of a walk-in shower. A uniquely shaped glass and crystal square lighting fixture suspended from the ceiling will feature indented sides to give the appearance of waves.

Gebert and Giso will finish the linear outdoor fireplace wall with a stunning new 12 by 12-inch corrugated marble material that is richly textured. A cream finished sofa and two side chairs with cushions in a mocha color will be grouped around a glass-topped dark-brown rectangular rattan cocktail table set on a cream and brown area rug. A metal espresso finished dining table with a cream-toned fabric will be surrounded by six dining chairs. The outdoor kitchen will feature espresso finished cabinetry and granite countertops in brown, taupe, and cream. The same granite will be used as a backsplash on the kitchen’s grill wall.
