Vogue Interiors has completed the interior design for Stock Development’s furnished Livia model at the Lake Club within Lakewood Ranch. The Livia’s 3,490 square feet under-air open-concept great room floor plan features an island kitchen with a walk-in pantry, a breakfast nook, a formal dining room, a private study, a spacious bonus room, four bedrooms, three baths, a three-car garage, and an outdoor living area with a fireplace, an outdoor kitchen, conversation and dining areas, and a pool and spa. The great room, master bedroom, and a hallway off the bonus room open to the outdoor living area.

Vogue’s design concept for the Livia model is focused on offering an earthy modern mix with décor that introduces a bit of Florida in a modern, sleek way. Layers of linens, live edge, and organic finishes are paired with clean lines and touches of mid-century style. New neutral brown tones take center stage and exude a sense of warmth while adding richness to the décor scheme. Splashes of earthy greens are found throughout the home in tropical plants and a variety of art selections. Flooring throughout the home is a light-toned eight by 48-inch wood-look porcelain tile.

Vogue’s design themes are immediately apparent in the Livia model’s foyer. An entire wall is covered in a chic, custom tile treatment that has a woven wood effect. The frames for a pair of 102-inch tall mirrors are set into the tile. Three metal chandeliers with globe-like glass and vibrant candelabra bulbs are suspended from a tray ceiling detail with cove backlighting.

The feature wall in the great room will present a brown leather and cream-toned bamboo wall covering. A television is mounted over a low-profile dark taupe built-in cabinet flanked by columns. Faux wood ceiling beams in a dark walnut tone will offer an additional note of warmth. A sofa and love seat done in a creamy off-white textured fabric are accented by a mix of vibrant tropical and rich coco silk pillows. Two darker-toned end tables will be paired with a square cocktail table with a glass top and an interesting organic base fashioned from intertwined vines. A pair of occasional chairs with organic curved backs include neutral fabrics and nail head details. The furniture grouping is anchored by a two-toned softly textured area rug. Drapery panels flanking the pocketing sliders that open to the outdoors are done in a light-weight textured linen.

An incredible jungle wood live-edge dining table with an intricate stainless-steel metal base provides comfortable seating for six in the formal dining room. Wooden based chairs with unique architectural styling feature cushions finished in warm off-white fabrics. A soft-white basket weave grass cloth wall covering provides contrast behind a dark-toned two-door credenza with off-white door fronts and metal accents. A pair of sconces are mounted above the credenza. The dining room also includes a circular walnut-toned chandelier and elegant drapery panels in an off-white linen finish.

Unique textured pendant lighting fixtures done in an attractive smoky-taupe colored glass are suspended above the island in the kitchen. Seating at the island includes three counter stools with wood frames and whit textured fabric. Both the island and the perimeter feature white plantation-style cabinets with flat paneled fronts and grey quartzite counter surfaces, all of which is accented by a hand-cut glass tile backsplash finished in contrasting shades of beige and taupe. The breakfast nook includes a walnut-toned tulip dining table with a metal base and chairs with wooden frames and white textured fabric that match the counter stools.

A classic library style bookcase with a quaint sliding ladder is featured in the Livia model’s welcoming study. Vogue has included classic medium-toned wooden executive desk with a black leather insert top that is paired with a comfortable chair covered in a dark coco linen fabric. An occasional chair finished in a grey and taupe infused creamy twill is paired with a round leather drum table with a metal base.

The bonus room offers a comfortable getaway that is ideal for relaxing, television viewing, and entertaining. The space includes an organic driftwood-toned media console with three doors, a wet bar finished with rich walnut-toned raised panel cabinetry and a Cream Minerva quartz countertop, and a contemporary leaning sectional sofa with a chaise in an off-white textured fabric. Other furnishings include an organic raw wood cocktail table with metal legs, a stylized organic raw wood end table, and a pair of organic textured poufs. An ebony-toned expandable game table has also been included. The window treatments are done in a raw silk Roman shade in a neutral light sandy-tan fabric.

The same striking color pallet that Vogue has used throughout the Livia model is found in the master suite. A channeled headboard with an ivory fabric is complimented by a pair of windows on the headboard wall that are flanked by drapery panels hanging from either side. Tropical dark coco brown crushed bamboo nightstands and a dresser finished in in a matching style include antique brass accents. A contemporary high-backed rattan occasional chair featuring off-white fabric is paired with a metal concave drum table with a rich dark coco brown finish. Matching contemporary organic free-flowing metal light fixtures are hung over the dual vanities in the master bath. Drapes done a gauze sheer with a dark taupe finish are paired with smooth alabaster-toned vanity cabinetry. Sandy-toned quartz counter surfaces are presented with attractive textures that recall memories of a relaxing day at the beach. The walk-in shower includes a staggered tile wall with coco-brown glass accents. An alluring free-standing tub is also featured.

The sectional sofa and side chairs on the covered lanai are presented with an alluring dark brown open weave rattan finish and feature light sandy brown cushions. Two end tables and a rectangular cocktail table are done in a rich warm brown rattan and paired with a matching rectangular dining table with seating for six. A ventless gas fireplace is surrounded by staggered tile that forms two trim bans offering compelling contrasts of color. A television is mounted above the fireplace.

Vogue’s transitional design conveys a celebration of beauty based on elegant simplicity throughout the Easton model.

The great room’s feature wall is covered in a dusty aubergine grass cloth that accentuates an attractive two-toned credenza in an off white and dark walnut finish accented in gold.

A dry bar is finished in a rich dark taupe color with a white quartz countertop and a glass tile backsplash done in a soft grey.

Across from the desk, two occasional chairs are framed in dark brown wood and finished with a smooth off-white fabric. Each chair hosts an accent pillow in a soft aubergine fabric. Between the two chairs, a smoky glass-topped table features a striking metal and acrylic base. A diamond embroidered drapery treatment featuring gauzy sheer compliments a unique dark taupe shag area rug.

A compelling piece of artwork provides a note of welcome in the vestibule of the master suite. The master bedroom is finished with the same soft grey and pure white color pallet found throughout the home. A custom upholstered bed features a vertically channeled headboard that compliments the side rails and footboard that are finished in a light taupe fabric with subtle glimmers of metallic shades. Two interesting nightstands with a concave design are finished in soft silver. The bedroom also includes a credenza done in dark walnut with an embossed textured front design finished in light metallic gold with hints of silver.

The 24 by 24-inch glazed polished tile flooring found throughout the home flows into the master bath and into the spacious walk-in shower. The shower walls also feature the same tile presented in a 12 by 24 -inch horizontal format with a striking staggered effect. Two by six-inch taupe colored glass tile provides a pleasing accent.

Vogue Interiors has been selected to create the interior design for Stock Development’s furnished Madison II model at the Wild Blue community. The Madison II’s 3,054 square feet under air open concept floor plan includes a living space with a great room, a large island kitchen, and a dining area. The plan also features a study, three bedrooms, a bonus room that is being designed as a fourth bedroom, and four and a half baths, one of which also functions as a pool bath. The great room, dining area, and bonus room all open to a large outdoor living area that will include spacious conversation and dining areas, an outdoor kitchen, and a pool and spa. The master bedroom opens to a private covered terrace. A three-car garage is also included.

Vogue has created a clean-lined, serene interior for the Madison II with an emphasis on comfort, sophistication, and practicality. The home’s transitional décor will mix a variety of textures, finishes, and fine details. Playful pops of color, including hints of muted aubergine, will be presented along with classic blues and neutrals against light grey backgrounds and pure white trim. Flooring in the primary living areas will be driftwood-toned hardwood. The foyer’s eight-light chandelier finished in polished stainless-steel with glass rod details will introduce the use of unique lighting fixtures throughout the home. A beautiful chrome-finished console in the foyer will feature a circular design and a glass top.

A feature wall with a two-tier bump-out design, parts of which will be wrapped in a driftwood-toned, wood grained wall covering, will provide a memory point in the great room. The center bump-out will be flanked by columns to create a deep space that will accommodate a four-door built-in cabinet with a light dove-grey finish. Faux wood wallpaper will be applied on the built-in’s trim details, as well as along the perimeter of the great room’s tray ceiling. Vintage platinum sconces mounted on the outside of the columns will feature opal glass. The second, shallower bump-out tier will extend to the right and left of the center section and will also be defined by columns. Furnishings in the great room will include a white fabric sofa accented by pillows with swirls of blues, neutrals, and aubergine. A matching chair and ottoman will be placed to the right of the sofa. A pair of cocktail tables with a driftwood finish and an aged accent mirror will be centered in the seating area. Two wood-framed occasional chairs will feature beautiful diamond shaped backs, white fabric to match the sofa, chair, and ottoman, and a metallic accent on the wood finish. Circular dark walnut end tables with glass tops and a bottom shelf will flank the sofa. The grouping will be anchored by an ivory low-pile area rug and by an alluring two-tiered chandelier with opal glass. Sheer cartridge pleat drapery panels flanking the pocketing sliders leading to the outdoor living area will be finished in an ivory tone with glass and chrome finished accent finials.

The Madison II’s kitchen will feature a large island with counter-height seating for four on dark coco finished barstools with light taupe fabric. Long linear pendants in a chrome finish will be suspended over the island. The island’s base cabinet will feature a soft grey dove finish that will play against the perimeter’s off-white cabinetry. White quartz counter surfaces with grey veining will be featured on both the island and the perimeter. The backsplash will showcase long narrow grey tiles with metal accents.

The adjacent dining area will also reflect Vogue’s commitment to creating a living environment that is comfortable, sophisticated, and practical. A four-door wooden buffet with a metal stretcher will be finished in a metallic soft champagne bronze color. The circular dining table will feature a substantial glass top with a unique base divided into two opposing half-circle base elements with opposing silver metallic and dark bronze finishes. Six dining chairs will include dark cappuccino finished legs, inside button backs, and a woven fabric in ivory and blue. The molding trim lining the perimeter of the dining area’s tray ceiling will be finished with the same faux wood wall covering found in the great room. Glass lighting fixtures with a dimple-like detail will be suspended on black cables and feature polished nickel sockets.

Four-shelf bookcases with lower cabinetry and an off-white finish will flank a two-paned window in the study and be connected by two shelves underneath the window. A desk with a driftwood finish, stainless-steel legs, and acrylic pulls will be accompanied by a functional desk chair with a wooden frame, chrome base, and neutral-toned fabric. A pair of side chairs flanking the room’s double-door entry will be presented with a driftwood finished frame, light taupe tufted button back leather, and bronze nail head accents. Each chair will be accompanied by bronze-toned circular side tables. Another unique chandelier, this one equal parts circular caged chrome and a chain detail, will be suspended from the center of the ceiling. The faux wood wall covering will be repeated on the perimeter of the tray ceiling. An off-white area rug will feature an ivory diamond-shaped pattern.

The master suite’s vestibule will display a colorful art piece. The master bedroom will be finished with a palette of ivories, neutrals, and soft muted aubergine. A king-sized bed will include a wooden frame and ivory fabric accents. The flat paneled headboard will also feature ivory fabric. Three-drawer nightstands with a light taupe metallic finish and acrylic pulls will flank the bed. A six-drawer dresser will have a matching finish and circular pulls. Another unique chrome chandelier with glass rod accents will provide a memory point. The sitting area will include an occasional chair in a neutral fabric with antique silver nail head details and a soft aubergine metallic accent pillow that will offer a bit of sparkle. A chrome-finished side table with a white marble top will be positioned adjacent to the chair. The room will be anchored by an ivory shag area rug.

Four chrome-finished pendant lights with a geometric tubular shape will be featured in the master bath. Off-white vanity cabinetry will be complimented by taupe-colored quartz counter surfaces. A free-standing tub will also be included. The room will present 24 by 24-inch grey porcelain tile flooring that will be carried into the walk-in shower. The same tile will transition to four two by five-inch vertical bands with another four vertical bands of glass tile accents.

The furnishings in the outdoor living area’s conversation area will feature tight woven rattan in a dark coco finish and muted aubergine fabric. The furnishings will include a pair of sofas, two swivel occasional chairs with flanking end tables, and two tightly woven coco rattan cocktail tables. The outdoor kitchen will showcase graphite-toned cabinetry, a blue pearl granite countertop, and a long off-white tile backsplash on the grill wall. A glass-topped pub-style dining table will be surrounded by six side chairs with a dark coco finish with a tight rattan detail.

Vogue Interiors has been selected to create the interior design for Stock Development’s furnished Livia model at Isles of Collier Preserve in Naples. The Livia’s 3,021 square feet under-air great room floor plan features an island kitchen with a walk-in pantry, a breakfast nook, a formal dining room, study, four bedrooms, three baths, a three-car garage, and an outdoor living area with a fireplace, an outdoor kitchen, conversation and dining areas, and a pool and spa. The great room, breakfast nook, and master bedroom open to the outdoor living area.

Vogue has created a sophisticated design for the Livia model that is clean and simple, yet bold and a bit daring. The design is balanced by soothing finishes that juxtapose contrasting elements. Acrylics, dark and light woods, and a blend of metals will deliver an array of colors and textures. Greige background tones will be accented by black, cream, taupe, and soft silver finishes and accessories. Soft greige ceilings, light white trim, and 22 by 22-inch light greige glazed porcelain tile flooring will contribute to the model’s sophistication.

Visitors to the Livia model will be greeted at a double-door entry and step into a foyer with a square coffered ceiling detail trimmed with crown molding and soft cove lighting. A mosaic flooring inlay fashioned from two by two-inch light greige glazed porcelain tile will mimic the shape of the coffered ceiling. A pendant lighting fixture done in black chrome with a fine chain detail will convey an air of sensual mystery as light peeks through the chain.

The great room will feature a drop-down trey ceiling with cove lighting. The feature wall in this generously sized space will be divided into three sections. The center section will be flanked by bumped-out columns and feature a textured mesh-like metallic reflective wall covering. A four-door credenza with a dark coco finish, mirrored door fronts, and diamond shaped gold accents will be positioned between the columns. The great room will include a dry bar with dark charcoal cabinetry and shelving and an off-white countertop. Furnishings will include a sofa with track arms and a side chair, both of which will be finished with soft white fabric and black, taupe, and cream-toned accent pillows. An acrylic sofa table with Greek key shaped accents on the bottoms of the legs will provide an additional note of interest. A pair of slipper chairs will be presented in a black finish with solid taupe fabric and a black faux rabbit accent pillow. The chairs will flank two drum-shaped side tables with a soft greige finish and aged brass accents. Two dark walnut wooden cocktail tables with acrylic legs, aged brass accents, and dark coco finished walnut lower shelves will be set side-by-side in the center of the space. A nine-light open-concept chandelier with a carbon black finish and a Havana gold accent band will be suspended over the cocktail tables. The furnishings will be anchored by a light pale grey area rug. Euro pleat sheer gauze drapery panels will flank the great room’s pocketing sliders that open to the outdoor living area.

The kitchen island’s base cabinet will have a dark charcoal finish that matches the great room’s dry bar. The look will be contrasted by alabaster perimeter cabinets. Both the island and the perimeter will feature off-white counter surfaces with a pale grey cast. Elongated grey and white multi-toned strips of marble will be presented in the kitchen’s backsplash. Hanging pendant lighting fixtures with a black finish and etched peek-a-boo geometric patterns and counter-height bar stools with a black finish and textured charcoal fabric will complete the look at the island. The breakfast nook will feature a beveled-edged circular glass-topped table with an aged bronze base and four chairs with a dark charcoal finish and grey fabric. A stunning lighting fixture with organza silk and a light linen shade will cast a soft diffused glow over the table.

The formal dining room will showcase a glass-topped table with a pair of metal pedestal bases. Two host chairs and four side chairs will have a charcoal finish and light grey fabric. A three-door sideboard will also have a charcoal finish and feature circular pulls and square stainless-steel accents.

The feature wall in the study will feature a graphite-toned built-in with five framed out wall details, scones with a satin black finish, and a grey wall covering with graphite accents. A black walnut writing desk with metal accents will be flanked by banks of drawers and included in front of the built-in. The desk will be accompanied by an ebony-toned leather chair. Other furnishings include a barrel-shaped occasional chair in a neutral fabric and a dark graphite finished base. A black square cage chandelier will be suspended above the desk. The space will be anchored by a grey and ivory area rug.

A king bed with a floor-to-ceiling off-white faux suede fabric upholstered headboard with three square panels will provide a memory point in the master bedroom. The bedding and accent pillows will be presented in taupes, blacks, greys, and creams. A black pleated drum shade chandelier with teardrop crystals will be suspended over the bed. The bed will be flanked by three-drawer black nightstands with acrylic pulls. The dresser will feature a black surround and a front finished in metallic silver. The sitting area overlooking the outdoors will include a side chair with black legs and ivory fabric that will be accompanied by a silver hammered-metal accent table.

The master bath will feature dual alabaster vanity cabinets with grey-veined off-white quartz counter surfaces. A chrome and glass horizontal lighting fixture will be placed above each vanity. Two by two-inch greige porcelain tile will be used on the shower floor and extend 18-inches up the wall to form a band all the way around the shower. Twelve by 24-inch tiles in the same color will extend from the top of the band to the ceiling and be accented with a second band comprised of octagon shaped grey glass tile. A gauze white sheer drapery will grace a window behind a free-standing tub.

The outdoor living area’s linear fireplace will be flanked by bump-outs and a third bump-out will extend from the fire box that will feature a two by two-inch matte finished charcoal surround. The fireplace wall will be finished with floor to ceiling 18 by 18-inch light grey ceramic tile that resembles stone. Furnishings in the conversation area by the fireplace will include a driftwood-toned woven rattan sofa the soft grey cushions, a matching side chair, a glass-topped woven rattan cocktail table, and a pair of nesting tables with concrete tops and metal bases. A neutral-toned area rug with a geometric black detail will anchor the seating area. The open-weave rattan dining table will have a glass top and match the driftwood-toned open-weave dining chairs that will feature a neutral fabric. Raven ash-grey cabinetry and a taupe and grey granite counter will be featured in the outdoor kitchen. Chaise lounges surrounding the pool will have a silver finish and neutral fabric and be accompanied by black toned garden stools.

Tune in to cable television virtually any afternoon or evening and you’ll likely find a do-it-yourself program about creating an interior design for your home. What these programs invariably overlook is the value a licensed professional interior designer can bring to the process. Rather than being limited to a signature design style, a skilled interior designer will first listen, and then present possibilities based on an extensive design spectrum and a broad range of knowledge and experience, all of which can prove to be invaluable to a homeowner whether they are renovating, remodeling, or designing the interior of a new home.

“Next to your name, your home is your most personal possession and presents a clear expression of who you are and what is important to you,” said Vogue Interiors’ Donna Overly, ASID, CAPS.

“Some people resist engaging a professional interior designer out of concerns about the cost and the time involved, particularly during the conceptual stages of a design project. What this resistance fails to recognize are the immediate and long-term benefits of working with a professional. A professionally designed interior will capture your unique personal preferences while enhancing the value of your home. It comes down to not only investing in your home, but, more importantly, in yourself, and you are worth it. The process is about creating an ambiance you and your family will enjoy today and for years to come.”

Interior design is far more complex than simply picking a paint color, flooring materials, or a piece of furniture. A professional design takes into account your day-to-day needs and requirements, your age, family structure, likes and dislikes, your home’s architectural style, construction details, and aesthetic goals. Professional interior designers make hundreds of decisions on behalf of their clients and know how to do so efficiently, effectively, and artfully while maximizing the return on each client’s investment. The end-result is a design that is timeless and a feeling that provides long lasting enjoyment.

“A licensed professional is more than a designer,” said Donna. “He or she is also an exceptional listener. They know the questions to ask, how to stimulate the thought process, and how to interpret their clients’ likes and dislikes. We expect our clients to invest their time during the crucial early stages of the design process. Based on those initial conversations, we will present a detailed design concept. Once we are in absolute synch with our client, we orchestrate every aspect of the project, from the creation and communication of the project documents, permitting, hiring and overseeing the trades people and contractors, executing the selection, payment, and delivery of materials, furnishings, and accessories, and job site inspections while keeping the project on time and on budget. These functions, along with a highly creative sensibility, are what an accomplished designer brings to every project. They are invaluable and ultimately save the client time while creating living spaces that will evoke a personal sense of pride and enjoyment.”

As architectural designs for both newly constructed and revitalized homes continue to trend toward open, functional spaces that are both luxurious and exceptionally livable, clean lines, simplicity and the allure of a serene environment are the hallmarks of today’s contemporary design. Simplicity, however, does not have to be stark. The use of materials with warmth and texture, and furnishings that are visually inviting make the difference between minimalist and monastic.

“The visionary architects, William Morris and Frank Lloyd Wright paved the way for the minimalist movement,” said Vogue Interiors’ award-winning interior designer Donna G. Overly, ASID, CAPS, “and stressed the importance of restraint and simplicity during a time of extremely ornate designs. Their avant-garde approach encouraged people to leave behind the
heavy, overdone style of what was considered typical and popular at the time. When a homeowner chooses to revitalize their home, we have found there are a variety of elements that can contribute to creating a serene ambiance that is both aesthetically and intellectually pleasing.”

To create that ambiance, Donna recommends using furnishings that have simple yet artistic styling with clean-lined design elements. A strategic lighting design that combines stylish, even edgy, lighting fixtures with concealed light sources can be utilized to direct the eye to features, furnishings, and accessories that are highlights and memory points of the interior design concept. In keeping with the tenants of the contemporary design style, a sense of luxury can be expressed through the use of a monochromatic color palette that is accented with thoughtfully chosen art pieces and accessories. Wood and stone elements can be utilized to provide a pleasing high contrast to the neutral palette while complimenting the home’s exterior finishes and bring the outside in.

“Open concept architectural designs, simple artistic styling, and the use of serene aesthetic features exemplify the ‘Less is More’ interior design concept that will provide a fresh new look for today’s style-conscious homeowner,” said Donna. “The idea is to add visual features, such as bold patterns, very sparingly to add a dash of style without being overwhelming. The use of flowing lines and sculptural curves can help enhance tight spaces that might otherwise seem cramped. A Zen-like element can be added by using fabric selections with natural fibers and textures. The visual rhythm that is a critical part of successful interior design is best created by using a single focal point in each room. This might be a breathtaking sculpture, a compelling piece of art, or a creatively designed furniture piece. The lighting in each room can be designed to bring special attention to each focal point. These design memory points will create visual appeal, as well as a pleasing, lasting impression.

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.

Vogue Interiors announced award-winning designer Sheila Corasaniti, IDS is creating the interior for Stock Custom Homes’ furnished Malibu model now under construction at 617 Hernando Drive on Marco Island. The home’s two-story, 3,629 square feet under air floor plan includes a spacious great room, huge island kitchen, a formal dining room, five bedrooms or four bedrooms plus a study, five-and-a-half baths, an upstairs loft, and a generous outdoor living area with multiple covered lanai spaces that offer comfortable gathering places. Two of the three upstairs guest bedrooms feature covered balconies overlooking the pool and outdoor living area. Construction of the Malibu model is expected to be completed in November.

Corasaniti has created an interior for the Malibu model that will reflect the easy, casual lifestyle that is Marco Island’s hallmark. She has incorporated a variety of natural elements found on the island, including shells and live-edged driftwood. The neutral color palette will feature light alabaster white backgrounds accented by various shades of blue and aquas. The flooring in the living areas will be a high-gloss alabaster white 24 x 24-inch porcelain tile.

Upon entry to the Malibu residence, visitors will be greeted in an elegant foyer showcasing the home’s grand staircase and a stunning shell chandelier measuring 60-inches high. The staircase mixes natural and modern references and features a wood-capped bannister, driftwood-toned treads and risers, and wire railings. A colorful art piece that introduces Corasaniti’s blue and aqua accent colors will be set above a live-edge driftwood console that further introduces her use of natural elements.

The foyer leads to a spacious great room with pocketing sliders that open to the outdoor living area. The room’s feature wall will present a highly modern built-in treatment with a recessed center section flanked by expanses with a glowing backlit floor to ceiling driftwood wall covering. In the center section, a captivating art piece will be set against a painted background and positioned above a floating taupe-toned media console. Furnishings will include an off-white woven sofa, a white leather chair with metal accents, and an oversized white woven chair that matches the sofa. Aqua, blue, and lime accent pillows will provide pops of color. A cross-cut stone cocktail table with metal accents will sit atop a jute area rug. A rectangular end table with a driftwood finish, an octagonally shaped end table with a geometric pattern fret work detail, and a console with a shell type surface and soft silver banding will complete the look.

Corasaniti has designed the massive island kitchen to serve as an appealing gathering area. The island will feature a light taupe base that will complement the perimeter’s alabaster cabinetry. Calcutta style porcelain countertops and a light taupe glass tile backsplash will continue the soft, engaging look. The walls will be accented with a light water blue tone. Dome-style hammered pendants with a seaside influence will combine with backless counter stools with driftwood bases and canvas seats to create a welcoming ambiance at the island. In the adjoining dining room, a glass-topped dining table with a driftwood base and a driftwood console with dimensional doors will continue Corasaniti’s easy, casual style. Host and hostess wing chairs at the head and foot of the table will be presented with two fabrics, hemp on the back and linen fronts, and driftwood legs. The driftwood side chairs will be wrapped with a spindled material and present soft green seats.

The home’s light, off-white background and flooring tones will be continued in the master bedroom that will also feature a slightly vaulted ceiling with backlighting. Abaca rope will wrap the frame of a stunning canopy bed. The bedding will all be done in off-white with hand-sewn wood bead accents. Above the bed, a hanging light fixture will feature ten shells to continue the design’s island references. Brushed linen finished nightstands and a matching dresser will complement the soft tones of the bedding. Two open weave rattan lounge chairs with off-white canvas seats and backs will feature hand-painted accent pillows in blue and aqua. The bed and sitting area’s large braided wool rugs will further soften the presentation. Off-white linen sheer curtains will reinforce the island feeling and continue the breezy window treatments found throughout the home.

The high-gloss alabaster white 24 x 24-inch porcelain tile will also continue in the master bathroom where off-white vanity cabinetry will be topped by attractive pelican white quartz counters with vessel sinks. Chevron patterned marble will be used to create an eye-catching two-foot wide vertical detail on the shower wall. A free-standing tub will complete the inviting look.

A guest bedroom on the first floor is designed to function as a bedroom or study and includes a full bath. Corasaniti has outfitted the space to serve both functions by including both a bed and a desk. The additional bedroom will be especially attractive to large families who cherish shared island getaways or to vacation and seasonal renters. Three additional guest suites with full baths, one of which serves as a second master suite, will be located upstairs. One of the upstairs bedrooms will open to a balcony on the front of the home, while the other two will open to a covered balcony and breezeway overlooking the outdoor living area. A catwalk leading from the top of the staircase to the bedrooms will overlook the foyer and great room.

A powder bath in a hallway just off the kitchen and dining room will feature a tiled vanity wall with a mirror flanked by pendant lights. The vanity cabinet will be presented in a light stainless steel with a stained glass door insert, a Carrara marble countertop, and a vessel sink.

The great room and master bedroom will both open to an outdoor living area featuring a covered lanai with a teak tongue-in-groove ceiling, an expansive pool and spa deck, brick-laid aqua-toned waterline tile in the pool and spa, a comfortable conversation area, and an outdoor kitchen. Corasaniti has included weathered desert tan cabinetry and Dekton Danae quartz countertops in her outdoor kitchen design along with a vertical elongated octagon glass tile backsplash. Furniture in the conversation area will feature slip-covered upholstery and include a concrete cocktail table. The dining table will also have a concrete look. Long breezeways will feature benches perfectly suited to relaxing while taking in the sunset or speaking with those enjoying the pool.

Today’s luxury home architectural designs typically include immense covered and uncovered outdoor spaces dedicated to creating a seamless indoor/outdoor lifestyle that can be enjoyed throughout the day. No longer relegated to simply providing a place for a grill station or for taking a dip in the pool, outdoor living areas have been transformed into secondary living rooms that reflect the same attention to detail and level of finish found inside the home. Comfortable conversation areas with elegant ceiling details, fireplaces, and luxurious furnishings with up-to-date outdoor fabrics, kitchens with stainless steel grills, granite or quartz countertops, and generous cabinetry, and dining areas that can accommodate gatherings with guests are all part of today’s outdoor living experience. Pools now showcase large decks, water and fire features, and separate areas with fire pits and cozy seating. These trends in how outdoor living areas are regarded and utilized have presented new challenges and opportunities for interior designers.

“Outdoor living areas have become an integral part of how a home lives and are regarded more as an extension of the air-conditioned interior living spaces than as something that is separate from the rest of the residence,” said Vogue Interiors’ Debbie DeMaria, ASID. “The function, look, and style of the outdoor spaces have become just as important as what we’re doing inside. Designers have an opportunity to create an outdoor experience that blurs the line between indoors and outdoors. New outdoor furniture and fabric choices, new fireplace designs, and new outdoor cabinetry and counter surfaces allow us to create outdoor areas that reflect the overall elegance and comfort of the home. We’re incorporating beautiful ceiling details and new LED lighting designs in our outdoor living areas, both of which help us create an appealing ambiance. Large pool decks offer an opportunity to incorporate water and fire features that elevate the outdoor experience even further. Separate deck areas with fire pits and seating are on the must-have list for luxury homebuyers.”

As outdoor living spaces have assumed a new level of prominence, new materials have been developed to enhance the outdoor experience. Designers now have access to luxurious UV protected and mold resistant area rugs that can be incorporated in conversation area designs. Textured 24 x 24-inch stone that combines shells and concrete is changing the look and feel of decking materials. Dimmable LED lighting fixtures and huge, dramatic ceiling fans contribute to the comfortable ambiance of the outdoor spaces.

“Outdoor living area designs have evolved tremendously over the past several years and they will keep on evolving,” said Debbie. “People purchase homes in Southwest Florida so they can enjoy our wonderful climate. Why wouldn’t they want to be just as comfortable outdoors as they are inside their homes? We’re extremely excited by opportunities to make the outdoor experience the best that it can be by using the newest materials, furnishings, and fabrics available.”
