Vogue Interiors announced it has completed the design and execution of the interior for Stock Signature Homes’ Glenmore furnished model now open for viewing and purchase at Quail West in North Naples. Designed to take full advantage of Quail West’s hallmark indoor/outdoor lifestyle, the Glenmore offers 3,591 square feet under air and an outdoor living area measuring 995 square feet that features an outdoor fireplace, summer kitchen, pool, and spa. The four bedroom, four-and-a-half bath great room floor plan includes a comfortable dining area, study, and a three-car garage. The model showcases an interior designed by Vogue’s Sheila Corasaniti, IDS.

Corasaniti’s graceful design is anchored in the classic contrast of black against white. Throughout the home, the high contrast color palette of black and white is enhanced by exotic textures for high impact. She introduces accents in soft gold metallic, silver, and a bit of taupe. The flooring throughout the living areas, study, and master suite is executed in a high polish 24 x 24-inch off-white porcelain tile that provides a mirrored sheen on the floor. The background wall colors throughout the residence are presented in off-white, except for the use of wallpapers introduced for texture and contrast. Corasaniti incorporated unique materials and textures, including black crown molding and black beams to offset the whites. The overall effect is one of clean-lined sophistication within a relaxed, informal setting.

The striking theme begins in the foyer where identical side wall niches display fabulous coordinating mirrors in gold and trimmed in black over elegant gold tables with black stone tops. The eye is drawn through the great room and wide pocketing sliders to the outdoors.

A double door entry to the right leads into the study where the off-white porcelain flooring continues. Corasaniti’s handsome plan includes custom cabinetry across the back wall to encase the window with a wood shade that effectively blends it into the design. Two black-framed occasional chairs face the cabinetry. Each is upholstered in a black and cream snake skin fabric. A shag rug on the floor adds additional texture.

Corasaniti’s design incorporates a stunning feature wall in the great room. Two floor-to-ceiling black columns trimmed with custom wood frame either end of the display while two more divide the space into three sections. Within each section, black cabinetry floats at the base while lighted glass shelves, framed in wood, float above. The wall behind is adorned in a champagne metal wall covering to provide a shimmery luster. Overhead, the coffered ceiling is defined by floating black beams, back lit for added drama. Facing the feature wall, a contemporary sofa in a linen fabric with a slight sheen to it is decorated with black and cream pillows in a variety of textures. In front of the sliding glass doors, a semi-backless upholstered bench in cream features multiple fabrics in patterns of black and cream. Completing the furniture grouping, two side chairs in light taupe textured cotton showcase fabric backs in a contrasting pearly tone. Two rectangular cocktail tables in antique mirror with black accents balance the center of the room. In contrast, black end tables display hand-painted trim in gold. Framing the sliders, and extending into the adjacent dining area, tall pleated drapes reveal flamboyant stripes in black and cream.

From the great room, a smooth transition to the gourmet kitchen is afforded via a counter height outer island that functions as an informal dining space. Champagne gold counter stools with a hair-on-hide finish are wrapped around three sides of the island. The outer island and perimeter cabinetry are finished in off-white with a granite countertop. The perimeter’s backsplash displays a cream background with black and gold striations. A second inner island for food preparation showcases a countertop in absolute black granite.

The dining area adjacent to the kitchen also features pocketing sliders that open to the outdoors and allow the entire living space to blend with the outdoor living area for entertaining. The dining table is fashioned as an elliptical oval in a dark wood accompanied by two curved benches on the long sides and a coordinating chair at each end. The seating is presented in a soft golden fabric for a lively contrast with the dark wood. To one side, a wall niche accommodates a floating black credenza with an onyx top enhanced by back lighting and set against a metallic wall backdrop. Attractive wall sconces add further highlights.

On the lanai, a fireplace custom-designed by Corasaniti provides the focus for a welcoming conversation area. A 42-inch linear firebox is encased in a wall of 12 x 24-inch gray tile with the look of silver stone. Clean-lined black wicker furniture adorned with cream, black and gold cushions is juxtaposed against flooring pavers in an off-white shell stone. A black outdoor hand-woven lanai rug adds further contrast and texture. At the opposite end of the lanai, the outdoor kitchen features graphite cabinetry with contrasting granite countertops and a counter height bar. The dining furniture includes a woven table and chairs in a black finish with an off-white fabric. For the pool’s water line and spa tile, Corasaniti selected a reflective pewter metallic border for dramatic sparkle.

A hallway beyond the study leads to double doors that open to the vestibule of the glamorous master suite. Corasaniti’s cohesive plan of light and dark continues in the charming bedroom with splashes of gold to add a layer of richness. The bed features a curved head and footboard with cream upholstery to offset the dark wood frame. Warm silver nightstands display cream tops with dramatic silver and gold drawer pulls. The dark chocolate wooden dresser showcases a round mirror above framed in gold. A spacious sitting area with double doors that open to a private covered lanai accommodates two modern wing chairs upholstered in off-white and decorated with black pillows and gold grommets. On each side, delicate mirrored tables reflect the beauty of the outdoors. A black skirted ottoman in front of the chairs encourages quiet repose. Beautiful sheer drapes hung from black medallions suffuse the room with breezy softness. Overhead, an architectural detail in the ceiling tray creates the look of simple beams.

The master bathroom showcases off-white cabinetry with black granite countertops set against decadent wallpaper in soft gold with swirls of black. In the water closet, the background is the same soft gold but without pattern. Off-white tile in the enormous shower is accented with striking gold and graphite detailing. A free-standing tub adds crisp white elegance.

Vogue Interiors announced that Donna Overly, ASID, an award-winning designer specializing in renovation and aging in place design, has completed the design and execution of an updated interior for an approximately 1,995 square feet, two-bedroom, two-bath condominium at the north end of Gulfshore Drive just south of Wiggins Pass. The condominium is located in a building built in 1980. Overly’s intention was to give what had become a dark, drab residence a current look with an upscale aesthetic and to take advantage of the home’s stunning Gulf views. Overly was also tasked with entirely replacing a hodge-podge of outdated furnishings inherited by her client from the previous owner.

Overly’s transformational design for this condominium began with a fresh new color palette that suffuses the home with an elegant understated grace. She eliminated the existing gold and brown tones and introduced a sophisticated blend of light taupe backgrounds and white trim with delightful infusions of sea glass and teal as accents to reflect the beauty of the stunning Gulf views. The original deckle-edge travertine stone flooring, laid on the diagonal, presented a neutral and timeless foundation that blended easily with the new plans.

The lighting throughout the home was updated. All overhead and cove lighting was replaced with cooler, energy efficient LED lighting that also looks discreet and modern. Harmonious sconce lighting was introduced in specific areas to help illuminate darker paces and add visual interest.

The entire condominium was refurnished with case goods in light wood tones and soft furnishings upholstered in sophisticated linens. The kitchen was totally redesigned to eliminate dark cabinetry and dark granite. Several innovative carpentry concepts were introduced to enhance the overall aesthetic. These included custom “shadow boxes” to artfully accommodate the home’s three wall-mounted televisions while hiding the mounting brackets and cables. In each case, the boxes were finished to blend perfectly with the furniture underneath for a unified, pleasing profile.

Upon entry into the foyer with its see-through views to the magnificent Gulf, an elegant console on the left is finished in a light oatmeal color with four darker fog-chagrined doors and a brushed nickel base. Tall slender lamps illuminate a large square piece of art over the console that introduces the condominium’s sea glass accent tones. A hallway on the right leads to the guest bedroom which epitomizes restful elegance with its muted tones, pleasing artwork, and handsome area rug.

Moving into the heart of the home where the spacious kitchen, dining room, and living room flow comfortably together, Overly’s main seating arrangement includes a light-toned curved sectional sofa with a chaise lounge at one end. The fabric is a practical outdoor linen reminiscent of a relaxed beach cottage. Throw pillows in patterned creams, taupes, and teals coordinate perfectly with the large rectangular area rug displaying captivating organic swirls. A cocktail table ottoman upholstered in a creamy faux leather adds to the relaxed atmosphere. Across from the sectional, a four-door console in a light driftwood finish anchors the television with its custom-made shadow box wall mounting. Overly has placed a sofa table that functions as a slim line desk behind the sectional. A chair from the dining room can easily be pulled up to provide practical work space, ideal for a condominium that has no study. The desk’s slender bronze legs, light oatmeal finish, and fog-chagrined drawer fronts perfectly complement the foyer console.

Another custom design feature is evident around the wide living room sliders. In order to disguise the dark bronze slider frames and hurricane shutter apparatus, Overly designed artful lambrequins upholstered in a light textured fabric. These chic valance casings brighten the openings to the screened balcony without obstructing any of the beautiful Gulf views.

In the adjacent dining room, Overly’s beguiling design incorporates four floor-to-ceiling French doors, crafted by a master carpenter, along the entire side wall. Their multiple mirrored panes enhance the area with bright reflections of the natural light while the central handles provide the illusion of functioning doors that could open to another room. In fact, this is the shared common wall with the neighboring unit. The stylish glass-topped dining table features a chrome base with geometric struts. At either end, host and hostess chairs display silver leaf wooden legs with seats and backs upholstered in a herringbone linen fabric. A chrome handle on the back of these chairs helps to maneuver them with ease. The four side chairs display a retro-style wooden frame in silver leaf and a natural Jakarta fabric for the upholstery. A wall sconce has been added to the structural column between the dining and living rooms. On the back wall, a handsome buffet console in a Geneva gray finish with a dove colored fabric on the door fronts completes the tableau.

The kitchen features extensive perimeter cabinetry and a generous free-standing island where four bar stools with taupe frames and soft teal upholstered seats provide a casual gathering spot. Overhead, lovely hand blown pendant fixtures add elegant beauty. Fresh new cabinetry in a gentle glazed cream finish is complemented by countertops in a sea foam green granite that has the look of onyx. New upgraded stainless appliances include an induction cooktop with a magnetic heating system for increased efficiency and safety. Additional storage has been created by adding more pantry space as well as new cabinetry for the dry bar just off the kitchen. The dry bar also features a complementary granite counter top and a striking custom mirror with horizontal waves of clear and colored glass.

The master bedroom is accessed through double French doors from the great room. Overly has paneled these, too, with mirrors to add the benefits of reflected light and the semblance of additional space. Woven grass cloth in sea glass tones adds a layer of texture and color to the headboard wall. The magnificent bed, fully upholstered in linen, showcases a scalloped padded headboard and is flanked by graceful nightstands that display mirrored fronts with a circular wood detail. A beautiful area rug with a geometrical design in cream and teal anchors the room while, across from the bed, a dresser in a Cliffside gray finish features six concave drawers for added dimension. Sliders open the room to a master patio that is also accessible from the great room. This ideal relaxation area, perfect for morning coffee overlooking the Gulf, features two opposing wood framed easy chairs, painted in an antique white finish with sea foam colored cushions, and a cozy ottoman in between. On the back wall a console in a driftwood finish provides room for wine storage and accessories.

While no major renovations were completed in the master bathroom, Overly added a cream colored wall covering. This handmade paper fashioned by artisans gives life and texture to the walls. Incorporated in the wallpaper are two crushed crystal geckos that make a striking impression upon entering the room.

Vogue Interiors announced it has completed the design and execution of the interior of a Venice furnished coach home model in Stock Development’s Cipriani neighborhood at Lely Resort in Naples. Cipriani offers four spacious, luxury coach home floor plans ranging from 2,191 to 2,920 square feet under air priced from the high $300’s. The Venice model’s interior was designed by Vogue’s Sheila Corasaniti, IDS and Salvatore Giso, IDS. The 2,191 square feet under air Venice downstairs coach home floor plan includes three bedrooms, three baths, a spacious great room and dining room area, an island kitchen, and a covered lanai that can be accessed from the great room or master bedroom. One of the two guest bedrooms opens to a charming private courtyard. The Venice plan also includes a two-car garage.

Corasaniti and Giso’s striking coastal design for the Venice model creates the image of a life lived where the sea meets the sand. Their color palette swirls sea greens with beautiful sand tones and a particularly soft shade of blue that leans towards mossy green for a true sense of the ocean. The flooring material is executed in a 24 x 24-inch porcelain tile in the sand color to blend seamlessly with the light sandy tones on the walls throughout the home. The designers selected a chrome finish for the full array of light fixtures featured in the Venice model.

From the entry loggia, the foyer opens into a spacious angled hallway where Corasaniti and Giso introduce attractive applied moldings contrasted by a mica wallpaper in the sea green color to provide an immediate sense of dimension. On the angled wall, the moldings are used to create a subtle frame for an eye-catching console with a chrome-like finish and stone top that has the look of a lovely piece of coral. An elegant mirror adorns the wall above. Across from the console, a dramatically large lacquered picture of beautiful calla lilies makes a bright, welcoming statement.

Continuing past entries on either side that lead to guest bedrooms, the hallway opens to the kitchen and great room. A long wall on the right provides the perfect canvas for distinctive applied moldings and decorative artwork.

Immediately on the left, the kitchen features perimeter cabinetry in a rich striate finish of tans and off white. Cabinetry for the spacious island is executed in a contrasting taupe. Uniting these tones, the counter surfaces are finished in a light off-white granite that reveals intricate swirling movement in grays, green, and taupes reminiscent of waves at the beach. Adding the finishing touch, a multi-colored glass and stone backsplash has the look of glistening diamonds in gentle waves. At the island, handsome stools in a mocha chocolate finish provide casual seating and connection to the great room.

Beyond the kitchen and arranged in perpendicular fashion to a large window, a wooden dining table displays an espresso finish to match the legs of the six dining chairs. The host and hostess chairs are upholstered in a light sand color while the side chairs have wood backs in an elongated oval and seats upholstered in a beautiful tweed blend of sea green and light sand.

Nestled between the dining area and wide pocketing sliders to the lanai, the great room seating arrangement is gathered to face an elegant feature wall that includes a striking media console in an espresso finish with distinctive doors in channeled silver nickel. A television floats above while beautiful accessories add sophistication. The inviting sofa is upholstered in a fabric with the look of sand, its light oatmeal tones accented by pillows with ombre stripes where shades of beige, light blue and gray fade into each other. Handsome easy chairs with wooden arms and legs feature a repeat of the lovely tweed upholstery seen in the dining room. A geometric pillow in each chair blends the sand and sea green tones. The cocktail table’s surface is finished in an unusual moss shagreen for the rich look of leather in a sea green hue while the base has a smoky pewter finish. A metal end table features a sandy stone top while a table behind the sofa is executed in the espresso finish. Stunning drapes in a shimmery metallic fabric grace the dining room and great room windows for a cohesive look.

The covered lanai area can be accessed from the great room as well as the master bedroom. Providing the ideal outdoor gathering space, this area includes a glass-top table and six chairs for cozy al fresco dining. In addition, Corasaniti and Giso have included two lounge chairs and a small table for a separate conversation area.

The delightful master suite features a contemporary style bed with an upholstered headboard, side rails, and footboard in a taupe fabric with cream detailing. The feet of the bed and the double dresser are finished in espresso tones while the nightstands showcase a silver finish with a soft serpentine front. A tufted bench at the foot of the bed provides additional comfort. For the luxurious bed linens, Corasaniti and Giso selected a coverlet in shimmery sand colored satin that coordinates perfectly with euro shams in the same fabric. Pillows in light blue velvet with delicate silver metal beads combine with geometric accent pillows in off white and metallic with sea green detailing. Fabulous drapes fashioned from the same sea glass velvet frame the large window overlooking the rear of the home. The carpeting features a contemporary pattern and provides luxurious comfort in this restful, welcoming oasis.

A hallway past two generous walk-in closets leads into the master bathroom where the flooring is executed in a high-gloss porcelain for chic elegance. His and hers vanity cabinetry in an off-white painted finish are topped with magnificent marble counters that feature a blend of swirling sea glass greens and taupe tones for a truly beautiful look. A statement stand-alone tub floats in one corner. The spacious shower showcases a remarkable glass tile that almost has the look of a metallic behind it and which incorporates the beautiful tones of the countertops.

In the private courtyard off of one of the guest bedrooms that offers a versatile and secluded retreat, Corasaniti and Giso present a cozy and relaxed seating group. All of the bathrooms in this charming home reveal decorative wallpaper that incorporates the aura of sea and sand with gorgeous tones and textures. Throughout the home, the selected colors and materials impart a sense of balance and harmony inspired by the sea.

From corporate offices at 24520 Production Circle in Bonita Springs, Florida, Vogue Interiors provides design services and model merchandising to residential and commercial clients in the United States and abroad.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The lanai will offer enticing lake and golf course views. An outdoor kitchen will feature eye-catching cabinetry in a sandblasted two-toned silver metal with a rain textured inlay. On either side of the grill, leather granite countertops with black and brown striations will extend for 20-feet. An informal gathering table and chairs will contribute to the enjoyment of hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. A sectional sofa and chairs in a deep seat wicker with textural tweed tone upholstery will be gathered around a linear fireplace encased in textural stone in variegated creams and browns. On either side of the fireplace, French doors will lead into the master bedroom.
The master bedroom’s white wood floor will be adorned with a laser cut cowhide rug. The bed will be fully-upholstered in linen and flanked by nightstands in a taupy silver finish. Mirrors over the nightstands will reflect the light from the French doors. Elegant white linen draperies with silver star metal studs of varying sizes will add breezy charm. Across from the bed, a custom built-in dresser will blend the room’s soft tones of natural wood and shimmery metallics and accommodate a 65-inch television and storage drawers.

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

While downsizing typically provides an opportunity for new beginnings, determining exactly what should be given to the children, delivered to a consignment shop, donated to charity, or simply thrown away can often be emotionally draining. Once those decisions are made, however, the resulting sense of freedom can be invigorating. Vogue Interiors Donna Overly, ASID specializes in working with clients to navigate the downsizing process and to create new living spaces that are ideally suited to their shifting lifestyle. Designing the new spaces often involves mixing cherished pieces of furniture and collected items with newer, more contemporary elements that better reflect current styles.

“I worked with a client who was moving from a 6,000 square feet home to a 20 year old 3,200 square feet resale condominium at Cap Ferrat in Pelican Bay,” said Overly. “There were furniture pieces, artwork, family photographs, and other items they were very firm about wanting to keep. Our challenge was to wipe away the detritus that naturally accumulates over 20 years and create a fresh, welcoming environment that incorporated everything they wanted to keep along with new furnishings and finishes. Maintaining a balance in this type of re-design and renovate project can be tricky. It can also be very rewarding to sense the client’s joy and satisfaction when they realize those things that are nearest and dearest can work beautifully when juxtaposed with newer, more up-to-date design elements. Our two biggest tasks were completely changing the color palette and selecting new furniture that would complement the pieces they chose to keep.”

To create a fresh light ambience, Overly began by introducing off-white neutral background tones throughout the home. The existing creamy stone tile flooring in the living areas was refreshed, given updated grout, and resealed to produce a brand new look. For maintenance-free practicality as well as aesthetic beauty, tired lighting fixtures and fans were replaced with efficient new technology, including noiseless fans, bendable track lighting and LED bulbs wherever possible. The result was a brighter, cheerier foundation for her elegant design to unfold. She began layering texture and color tones in light easy neutrals, pretty seaglass and vivacious royal navy, incorporating rich wood tones and blending classic styles with clean lines for timeless elegance. For window treatments, Overly introduced a mini cornice design to showcase functioning draperies where appropriate or side panels. Still allowing optimal exposure to the dramatic views, this added a decorative element to the windows throughout, infusing color and finesse while softening the architecture. After eliminating the out of date faux finish on the walls in the elevator lobby, living room, and dining room, she introduced grass cloth wall coverings with metallic backgrounds to all of the ceiling details to add subtle reflective dimension.

Upon entering the condo’s foyer, a low console with a eucalyptus veneer top and a front overlay in white and cream bone makes an immediate statement. Its 100-inch length is ideal to display the family’s collectibles and photographs.

The foyer opens to the living room where a large off-white velour sectional sofa and comfortable contemporary swivel chairs in an off-white woven fabric are arranged upon a stunning wool rug in light blue and off-white. One side of the rug is entirely blue while the other incorporates delightful swirls of seaglass and off-white. In the center, a custom-designed cocktail table incorporates four chrome cubes at the base and a 60-inch square custom-cut glass top allowing the beauty of the rug to radiate. Behind the sectional is a handsome contemporary four door media console in an ebony finish with a golf leaf base and square handles. A side table aptly named “catch a glimpse” thanks to a low shelf that reflects the painting on the underside of the table top adds interest. While happily incorporating the owner’s beloved artwork throughout the home, Overly supplied one dramatic art piece for the living room in the vibrant sea glass and blue tones of her design theme. Wide wall-to-wall sliders open on two sides of the living room to provide an extraordinary connection to the outdoors and Cap Ferrat’s spectacular views.

Centered between the living room and the family room, the dining room features a sophisticated buffet in a medium tone with a step-back design highlighted by hand painted gold swirl accents. Three doors open to reveal six adjustable shelves and four full-extension felt lined silver drawers. At the base, six metal block feet are finished in a brushed rose gold finish. A beautiful square wooden dining table with decorative striations and a cube-shaped base is paired with eight striking chairs upholstered in a faux reptilian woven fabric and decorative nail head trim.

While the owners were not inclined to major structural renovations, they were delighted with the addition of a generous island that provides a new gathering space in the gourmet kitchen. As opposed to the customary breakfast table and chairs, the island affords a spacious area for food preparation as well as casual seating with five counter height barstools displaying round upholstered seats in a creamy woven fabric with nail head trim. To contrast with the existing lighter toned perimeter cabinetry and countertops in swirling earth tones, the island cabinetry is executed in a darker wood and topped with a light monochromatic Cambria quartz. Five frosted pendant lights are suspended from a monorail track overhead to establish a lively new look.

On the other side of the dining room, the welcoming family room also benefits from sliding glass doors that open onto a wide terrace offering yet another vantage point to attractive views. A taupe-toned leather sofa that includes two motorized recliners invites deep relaxation and comfort. Serving as a cocktail table while providing much coveted storage, a large top-opening ottoman in a teal alligator embossed leather adds style and practicality. Complementing the sofa, a handsome occasional chair is finished in a light neutral herring bone tweed accented with a pillow in the seaglass tones. A large area rug unites the furnishings, showcasing a fluid pattern in the room’s teal blue and taupe tones for harmonious appeal. Overly was able to incorporate an existing wall unit that, while more traditional in style, has a classic design and compatible color tones for a seamless blend of the old and the new.

A private hallway to the master suite leads past his and her closets that were made spacious and more functional with a creative closet design to an enormous octagonal bedroom. The eye is drawn to the custom king-size bed whose tall flared headboard, footboard and side rails are upholstered in an off-white chenille that sets the tone for this tranquil space. On either side, beautiful round cabinet night stands with scalloped trim add distinction. The dresser is multi-functional and incorporates three chests, two cabinet pairs, a bridge and a space for a television. New carpeting in the master bedroom as well as the guest suites provides fresh and luxurious comfort.

The master bathroom was given updated lighting and fans. By incorporating two different types of wallpaper, Overly introduced some fresh background texture and pattern to this charming space.

Vogue Interiors announced that award-winning interior designer Leslie Gebert, Allied Member, ASID has completed the remodeled interior of an approximately 3,000 square feet condominium situated on a bay with access to the waters of the Gulf off Vanderbilt Beach in North Naples. The spacious residence includes a great room and dining area, a family room with a fireplace, a study, a gourmet island kitchen, a spacious master suite that opens to the outdoor living area, two guest bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, and a large covered lanai with multiple conversation and dining areas. Tall windows throughout the entire home provide beautiful long-range views of the bay. Sliders in the living areas open the residence to the outdoors. Gebert’s design incorporates a variety of existing furnishings along with new furniture pieces, a light, neutral color palette, and attractive molding details and artwork to create a cleaner, brighter, and more practical living environment that will be enjoyed by the homeowners, their children, and grandchildren.

Gebert’s transformation begins in the long angled hallway that leads from the elevator lobby to the main living area. To brighten the formerly dark hallway, Gebert added stylish wall columns to frame a floor-to-ceiling mirror display further enhanced by elegant trim work at chair rail height which divides the mirrors into two long horizontal sections. The trim is painted fresh white to coordinate perfectly with the existing ivory marble flooring that runs throughout the residence and forms the foundation for the color palette. Applied trim detailing extends around the angled wall to encase fabulous artwork that incorporates Gebert’s shimmery metallic accent motif. Chic ceiling-mounted light fixtures bathe the hallway with dulcet reflective light.

The entry hallway opens to the gracious living and dining area where Gebert’s plan incorporates the homeowners’ dramatic dining room crystal chandelier as well as a beautiful Oriental living room rug with strong black, gold, and ivory patterning. The dining area is located in front of sliding glass doors that offer panoramic views of the Gulf. A 60-inch circular glass-top table with a gold metallic and mother of pearl base is paired with black-framed chairs upholstered in a gold metallic vinyl that is practical when wearing a bathing suit. Overhead, black vinyl shades with metallic interiors give the chandelier an updated presentation that perfectly coordinates with the accent tones. The walls on either side of the sliders display a sunflower mirror elegantly framed in black and gold sculpted petals and distinctive artwork with gold metallic leaves on an ivory background.

In the living area, set against the backdrop of light ivory walls and ivory marble flooring, the handsome Oriental rug provides a bold foundation for the seating group. A sofa adorned with dark accent cushions is upholstered in a creamy Sunbrella fabric that is not subject to sun fading from the large picture windows. Two club chairs upholstered in a soft velvet cheetah pattern of muted beiges and browns are positioned at right angles with the sofa. A round glass-topped cocktail table with a gold metallic frame and black accents, and two metallic end tables with exotic quartzite tops that display soft gold veining, enhance the arrangement. Tall ivory tailored draperies with contrasting black gussets neatly frame the window and sliders. Against separate walls, a transitional china cabinet in a warm medium toned wood and a small Oriental buffet with a distressed mirror front and gold metal sunburst hardware add interest and practical storage space.

The kitchen separates the formal living and dining area from the family room. Three swivel barstools with black bases and seats upholstered in a textured metallic bronze vinyl are located at a handsome bar counter on the living room side of the kitchen. The kitchen has been freshly painted to blend with the new ivory color palette. Gebert preserved the original glazed cream cabinetry and golden brown granite countertops.

In the family room, which previously held a heavy, dark sectional sofa, Gebert was asked to provide ample practical seating in a style where grandchildren would feel comfortable using the room. The homeowners also required comfortable chairs to enjoy both the morning sunrise and evening sunset, as well as relaxed television viewing. Gebert’s plan incorporates an oversized sofa in an ivory-taupe leather with black, gray, and silver accent pillows, and two swivel lounge chairs in the same leather. The swivel chairs are positioned on either side of a round table with a stone top that the homeowners have fondly used for many years. On the feature wall, a huge 80-inch television is wall-mounted over a sleek black media cabinet that includes a built-in fireplace for added character and practicality. A versatile black geometric cocktail table showcasing multiple tiered and angled layers for displaying books or bowls of popcorn is anchored by a fun shag rug in shades of taupe, ivory, and black. Sliding glass doors, framed with sheer ivory drapery panels edged in black, open this room up to a wide balcony space where several seating areas and ample al fresco dining space provide relaxed lounging overlooking the bay for a true taste of the Florida lifestyle.

Treasured memorabilia and collected items are displayed in the study. The homeowner elected not to change the original glazed Chinese red décor that includes a chair rail with handsome wainscoting below and a faux finish on the walls above. Gebert refreshed the space by adding new lighting and a bright white presentation to the coffered ceiling.

The master bedroom includes a graceful blend of old and new. From the owners’ previous home, Gebert has incorporated as a backdrop on the headboard wall an impressive decorative art screen in blacks and golds depicting a Venetian scene. The king size bed is flanked by glamorous nightstands displaying mirrored tops and drawer fronts. Velvet accent pillows with a gold leaf design and a faux fur throw rug add a layer of luxury to the simple gold quilted coverlet and euro shams. A tall gold-framed wall mirror and a small Louis XVI desk with artful gold ormolu detailing, both from a previous home, have also been smoothly integrated into the design. Stationary sheer panels subtly accented by embroidery and gold metallic thread frame the sliding glass doors that open to the lanai overlooking the bay.

Gebert has refreshed the master bathroom with a new wallpaper displaying a large medallion pattern against a soft ivory leather look that blends perfectly with the existing granite floors, tub deck, and vanity tops for a timeless look in tones of ivory and soft beige-gold.

“Without major rebuilding and stressful renovations, we were able to create an entirely new design that successfully incorporated the homeowners’ elegant and treasured items,” stated Gebert. “The essential elegance and ‘wow’ factor of the residence is still there, but with relaxed and casual overtones that are perfect for the way they live. They can enjoy their views, their boating, and all that the Florida lifestyle encompasses. And, most importantly, they can enjoy having family visit in a comfortable and practical environment.”

Vogue Interiors announced it has been selected to design and execute the interior for Stock Signature Homes’ Glenmore furnished model now under construction at Quail West in North Naples. Designed to take full advantage of Quail West’s hallmark indoor/outdoor lifestyle, the Glenmore will offer 3,591 square feet under air and an outdoor living area measuring 995 square feet that features an outdoor fireplace, summer kitchen, pool, and spa. The four bedroom, four-and-a-half bath great room floor plan includes a comfortable dining area, study, and a three-car garage. The model will showcase an interior designed by Vogue’s Sheila Corasaniti, IDS.

Corasaniti’s graceful design is anchored in the classic contrast of black against white. Throughout the home, the high contrast color palette of black and white will be enhanced by exotic textures for high impact. She will introduce accents in soft gold metallic, silver, and a bit of taupe. The flooring throughout the living areas, study, and master suite will be executed in a high polish 24 x24-inch off-white porcelain tile that will provide a mirrored sheen on the floor. The background wall colors throughout the residence will be represented in off-white, except for the use of wallpapers introduced for texture and contrast. She will incorporate unique materials and play with texture, including black crown molding and black beams to offset the whites. The overall effect will be one of clean-lined sophistication within a relaxed, informal setting.

This striking theme will begin in the foyer where identical side wall niches will display fabulous coordinating pieces of black and white art work over elegant gold tables with black stone tops. The eye will be drawn through the great room and wide pocketing sliders to the outdoors.

A double door entry to the right will lead into the study where the off-white porcelain flooring will continue. Corasaniti’s handsome plan calls for custom cabinetry across the back wall to encase the window with a woven wood shade that will effectively blend it into the design. Two black-framed occasional chairs will face the cabinetry. Each will be upholstered in a black and cream snake skin finish. A shag rug on the floor will add additional texture.

Corasaniti’s plan will incorporate a stunning feature wall in the great room. Two floor-to-ceiling black columns trimmed with custom wood will frame either end of the display while two more will divide the space into three sections. Within each section, black cabinetry will float at the base while lighted glass shelves, framed in wood, will float above. The wall behind will be adorned in a champagne metal wall covering to provide a shimmery luster. Overhead, the coffered ceiling will be defined by floating black beams, back lit for added drama. Facing the feature wall, a contemporary sofa in a linen fabric with a slight sheen to it will be decorated with black and white pillows in a variety of textures. In front of the sliding glass doors, a semi-backless upholstered bench in cream will feature multiple fabrics in patterns of black and cream. Completing the furniture grouping, two side chairs in light taupe textured cotton will showcase fabric backs in a contrasting pearly tone. Two rectangular cocktail tables in subtle hammered gold metal embellished with nail heads will feature a Greek key design on the base. In contrast, black end tables will display hand-painted trim in gold. Framing the sliders, and extending into the adjacent dining area, tall pleated drapes will reveal flamboyant stripes in black and cream.

From the great room, a smooth transition to the gourmet kitchen will be afforded via a counter height outer island that will function as an informal dining space. Champagne gold counter stools with a hair-on-hide finish will be wrapped around three sides of the island. The outer island and perimeter cabinetry will be finished in off-white with a granite countertop. The perimeter’s backsplash will display a cream background with black and gold striations. A second inner island for food preparation will showcase a countertop in absolute black granite.

The dining area adjacent to the kitchen will also feature pocketing sliders that open to the outdoors and allow the entire living space to blend with the outdoor living area for entertaining. The dining table will be fashioned as an elliptical oval in a dark wood accompanied by two curved benches on the long sides and a coordinating chair at each end. The seating fabric will be presented in an off-white fabric for a lively contrast with the dark wood. To one side, a wall niche will accommodate a floating black credenza with an onyx top enhanced by back lighting and set against a metallic wall backdrop. Attractive wall sconces will add further highlights.

On the lanai, a fireplace custom-designed by Corasaniti will provide the focus for a welcoming conversation area. A 42-inch linear firebox will be encased in a wall of 12 x 24-inch gray tile with the look of silver stone. Clean-lined black wicker furniture adorned with cream, black and gold cushions will be juxtaposed against flooring pavers in an off-white shell stone. A black outdoor hand-woven lanai rug will add further contrast and texture. At the opposite end of the lanai, the outdoor kitchen will feature graphite cabinetry with contrasting granite countertops and a counter height bar. The dining furniture will include a woven table and chairs in an off-white finish. For the pool’s water line tile, Corasaniti has selected a reflective pewter metallic border for dramatic sparkle.

A hallway beyond the study leads to double doors that open to the vestibule of the glamorous master suite. Corasaniti’s cohesive plan of light and dark will continue in the charming bedroom with splashes of gold to add a layer of richness. The bed will feature a curved head and footboard with cream upholstery to offset the dark wood frame. Dark espresso-chocolate nightstands will display cream tops with dramatic silver and gold drawer pulls. The dark chocolate wooden dresser will showcase a round mirror above framed in gold. A spacious sitting area with double doors that open to a private covered lanai will accommodate two modern wing chairs upholstered in off-white and decorated with black pillows and gold grommets. On each side, delicate mirrored tables will reflect the beauty of the outdoors. A black skirted ottoman in front of the chairs will encourage quiet repose. Beautiful sheer drapes hung from black medallions will suffuse the room with breezy softness. Overhead, an architectural detail in the ceiling tray will create the look of simple beams.

The master bathroom will showcase off-white cabinetry with black granite countertops set against decadent wallpaper in soft gold with swirls of black. In the water closet, the background will be the same soft gold but without pattern. Off-white tile in the enormous shower will be accented with striking gold and graphite detailing. A free-standing tub will add crisp white elegance.

Vogue Interiors announced it has been selected to design and execute the interior for a Casa Arianna residence being built by Harbourside Custom Homes in the Fairgrove neighborhood at Talis Park. Fairgrove offers golf course, water and preserve views. The neighborhood presents 24 south facing homes. Italian Renaissance designs are joined by a Spanish Eclectic style. Homes in Fairgrove range from 3,100 to 4,000 square feet. Vogue’s award-winning interior designer Leslie Gebert, Allied Member, ASID is creating the interior for the 3,935 square feet, four bedroom, four bath Casa Arianna. The great room floor plan includes a fireplace, wet bar, his and her studies, a formal dining room, a gourmet island kitchen, a two-car garage, and a one-car garage. A summer kitchen and fireplace are featured in the outdoor living area.

Gebert’s design concept for the Casa Arianna will combine elegance and grace with easy comfort for a practical and refined lifestyle. Set against a foundation of ivory stone flooring, her plan calls for soft champagne metallics with sophisticated layers of rich eggplant and purples blended with ivory tones for distinctive contrasts.

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

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

An opening from the dining room will lead into a well-appointed wet bar that also serves the great room. The bar’s back wall will be faux finished in a delicate champagne color with upper and lower cabinetry executed in a soft taupe. The upper cabinets will feature lighted glass fronts. The dynamic backsplash, in laser cut tiles of taupe and white, will present the look of a rounded diamond pattern. The bar itself will be executed in Taj Mahal granite and will feature three dark-legged stools upholstered in an ivory fabric.

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

The great room will flow easily into a comfortable kitchen featuring a generous island with food prep and entertainment space. The island’s base cabinetry will be executed in a muted taupe while the perimeter cabinetry will be finished in a soft off-white with a misty taupe glaze. The unified granite counters and backsplash will present a vibrant swirling blend of white, light taupe, and brown tones.

In the adjacent breakfast nook, angled mitred windows will overlook Talis Park’s glorious tableau. A circular glass-topped table will be paired with elegant tall chairs upholstered in amethyst metallic suede.

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

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

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

The flooring in the master bathroom will be executed in a rectangular taupe porcelain tile and provide a foundation for a softly textured off-white rug. His and her vanity cabinetry will be finished in glazed ivory with granite countertops in soft beige. A stool with Lucite legs and a textured amethyst velvet seat will add dimension. The soaking tub will showcase a granite deck surround and front cabinetry panels. The flooring will continue in the shower where a broad iridescent horizontal Listello will add a delicate shimmer.

Vogue Interiors announced it has completed the design and execution of the interior for Stock Signature Homes’ Useppa furnished model at Stock Development’s Hidden Harbor community located between Naples and Fort Myers on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. Hidden Harbor is a 55-acre community featuring a boating lifestyle with captivating water views, private boat slips, world-class fishing, and a residents-only clubhouse. At build-out, Hidden Harbor will include 76 contemporary coastal estate homes ranging from 2,500 to 3,500 square feet. The Useppa model is one of five furnished models that are being showcased at Hidden Harbor.

Vogue’s interior designer Sheila Corasaniti, IDS created the interior for the 2,789 square feet under air Useppa model. The open concept great room floor plan includes four bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, a study, a three-car garage, and an outdoor living area featuring a covered lanai with a summer kitchen and dining and conversation areas, as well as a spacious deck with a large pool and spa. The great room flows into a gourmet island kitchen with counter-height barstool seating and into a dining area overlooking the pool and spa. Ninety-degree pocketing sliders completely open the great room to the outdoor living area.

Corasaniti’s groundbreaking vision for the Useppa model combines a breezy coastal look with modish Miami chic. She has incorporated driftwood, stone and other natural materials to create an eye-catching array of texture. The highly polished 24 x 24-inch porcelain tile floor in the main living areas invokes Miami flair, while the vivacious color palette blends aquas and soft apple greens with beige and white for a fresh, lively appeal.

The natural elements begin in the foyer where the walls are adorned with a striking covering derived from the abaca banana tree, native to the Philippines. With the look of reeded grass cloth interwoven with silver thread, it presents a remarkable backdrop to a statement bench finished in a tufted off-white fabric with nail heads and a tall hat tree artfully fashioned out of interwoven driftwood branches. Overhead, a contemporary chrome chandelier embellished with droplets of crystal is dazzling.
Double doors to the left lead from the foyer to the study where light beige-gray driftwood flooring, laid horizontally, presents a charming foundation for two étagères created with driftwood, chrome, and glass. An extraordinary driftwood desk and lime green chair float in front. The walls are painted a light gray with soft off-white linen drapes that are also seen elsewhere in the home. An occasional chair, upholstered in linen, is decorated with a pillow that incorporates all the apple green, aqua, and taupe tones in Corasaniti’s palette.

Beyond the foyer, the great room offers an expansive welcoming space that includes the dining room and kitchen. Corner pocketing sliders and wide windows create a sense of light and connection to the glorious outside. Corasaniti’s has incorporated dramatic ceiling beams wallpapered with the look of driftwood that span the entire area to add texture and vitality.

The great room’s feature wall showcases a modern floating cabinet in an off-white finish with shelves at the sides and a shelf over the television. The background wall tone is a soft neutral beige. Gathered around, the seating group includes a sofa in off-white linen with chrome nail heads accented by pillows featuring wide stripes in all the home’s fresh colors of aqua, apple green, pale blue and off-white. Two accent barrel chairs with chrome frames are upholstered in off-white. A Miami-style Lucite cocktail table with a glass top is blended with chrome and glass sofa tables. For contrast, one of the end tables is a stunning cube design all in natural teak-toned wood. Suspended over the seating group, a twisted chrome chandelier floats extravagantly like seaweed.

When the pocketing sliders are opened, the great room and outdoor living areas combine to create the sense of a truly remarkable, all-encompassing space. Outside, the furnishings are upholstered in an off-white material as a natural extension of the inside design. The dining area features a table with seating for six. The summer kitchen along one wall houses cabinetry in stainless steel and light cream granite counters that display flecks of black, gray, and soft green. The wall behind the grill is finished with stacked stone. The pool itself is L-shaped with crisp angles and an exquisite bright aqua tile at the water line for a beguiling Miami look. A fire pit emphasizes the drama of this luxurious entertainment space.

In the indoor dining area, which enjoys spectacular views of the pool, a rectangular driftwood-finish table is paired with six matching chairs upholstered in linen. Overhead, a modern chandelier with the look of bent chrome tubing and crystal adds a contrasting twist. A double curio cabinet in an off-white finish is showcased against a painted wall of bright aqua for a fresh burst of color against the muted beige walls of the great room. Additional vibrancy is provided by colorful vases and accessories in the cabinet. The wide window is framed by soft sheer draperies in white.

Off-white tones continue in the beautiful kitchen where extensive cabinetry with simple shaker style doors and chrome hardware is featured around the perimeter and on the generous island. All counter surfaces are executed in a handsome granite with striations of taupe, gray, and off-white. Sanded river rock creates a backsplash that provides remarkable texture and a sense of cohesion. The side walls and areas above the cabinetry feature a printed natural grass cloth with silver metallic accents. At the island, metal counter stools are adorned with happy apple green tie cushions while overhead decorative pendant lights formed of chrome and crystal tubes add pizzazz.

Corasaniti’s design in the master bedroom includes a glamorous silver metal poster bed with a headboard in off-white fabric with buttoned tufting set against another accent wall of bright aqua. The other walls are painted in the light soft beige. The dresser and night stands are represented in shades of off-white while the light bed linens are accented by a wavy fabric in apple and aqua. A flamboyant chrome chandelier with crystal fluting adds the finishing touch.

A hallway leads past two walk-in closets to a master bathroom offering bright, fresh appeal. His and her vanity cabinetry in an off-white finish are topped with granite counters in taupe and cream. The flooring is executed in a light porcelain tile with a driftwood feeling. The shower blends glass tile with 12 x 24-inch stacked tiles to create a wide vertical border. Enhancing the room’s natural elegance, a stand-alone tub is located along the back wall.

Vogue Interiors announced interior designer Deborah Paulin, ASID, NCIDQ has completed the interior design of an 8,552 square feet under air estate residence at Renaissance in Fort Myers built by Harbourside Custom Homes. Paulin’s transitional design style mixes traditional and transitional furnishings with contemporary artwork. The sprawling, two-story residence includes two first floor and four second floor bedrooms, six full baths and three half-baths, an exceptionally large study, a formal dining room that seats twelve, a beautifully executed semi-circular wet bar, a kitchen with a five-sided island and exquisite ceiling details, a formal living room, a spacious family room, a master bedroom with a large seating area, a second floor entertainment room with a wet bar, two covered balconies upstairs, two two-car garages, and an outdoor living area with a fireplace, a summer kitchen with an island bar, and a custom designed pool and spa.

Paulin’s color palette for the formal dining room, living room, and stairwell is a blend of grays, silvers, taupes, creams, and rich butter yellow. The grays carry through to the kitchen, informal living areas, and upstairs where they are harmonized with neutral taupes, putties, and creams which provides a smooth transition to each guest suite having its own personalized color scheme. The first floor exudes an aura of sophisticated elegance while the second floor trends in a more casual direction to provide relaxed comfort for visitors.

Paulin’s design creates a dramatic impact immediately upon entry to the home’s reception area where she uses elaborate decorative insets in the highly polished cream marble flooring. The foyer presents impressive views of a grand living room with soaring 30-foot ceilings, fabulous furniture, and three-tiered drapes. The vista expands to include a glimpse through angled pocketing sliders of a pool with active fountains and fire bowls. To the left, the dramatic circular stairwell with its dark wood finish and custom metal railings rises gracefully to the second story.

The formal dining room showcases a grand traditional style table with distinctive mellow-toned woods, including insets and gilding. The hand-carved dining chairs are French in design with a lovely contemporary fabric on the back. The room is open along one wall to the butler’s pantry where a display of custom metal artwork creates a focal point.

The expansive formal living room is defined by custom carved stone columns to the second floor gallery. The feature wall showcases a carved stone fireplace with a stone mantel and two matching columns that support an elegant arch over which fine artwork is displayed. Deep niches on either side have tall decorative displays of contemporary silver tree branches. Gathered around the fireplace are two upholstered 90-inch wide sofas in a cream fabric with multiple pillows in taupe, cream, and butter yellow, and two French bergere chairs in similar tones. A contemporary black lacquer coffee table with a butter-toned onyx top contrasts the sofa and end tables finished in silver gold. A custom area rug in the same pattern as the featured fabric pillows anchors the space.

Adjacent to the living room is a gorgeous semi-circular custom built-in bar with four black armchairs on casters and finished in a beautiful taupe chenille fabric. The cabinetry within the step down bar area is executed in dark wood while the bar top is black marble and stunning custom apron detail are a complementary high-polish creamy marble background.

The gourmet kitchen features beamed ceiling details and perimeter cabinetry in rich dark brown that plays against granite counters in cream tones with subtle black-gold accents. The backsplash combines golden onyx with buttery tile that displays a shimmery cracked glaze effect. A custom range hood in a combination of stone and copper with corbels and a mantel adds stunning color. A central five-sided island with a black granite surface and painted cream cabinetry offers seating for three. A larger outer island offers seating for five with cabinetry and granite to match the kitchen’s perimeter.

The generous breakfast nook accommodates a large circular wood table with a dark hand-carved twisted base. The eight chairs are in a complementary caramel color with leather seats and simple oval leather backs. A circular ceiling detail ties in with the wood beams in the kitchen and the dark tones of the spiral staircase.

In the family room, Paulin has introduced a more rustic theme with a large L-shaped sectional in plush patterned chenille accompanied by a long sofa table in a weathered sandy finish and a second three-seat matching sofa. The cocktail table has a casual wood plank top and traditional carved detailing. A custom entertainment center in the same rich wood used in the kitchen houses a large television with shelving on either side. Pocketing sliders open to provide a seamless transition to the outdoor kitchen and dining space.

The outdoor kitchen’s focal wall features stacked stone in an arch shape and a marble backsplash behind a grill with a faux copper custom hood in terracotta tones. An island with seating for five is executed in dark wood cabinetry with a stacked stone apron and granite counter in black, taupe and terracotta. The outdoor dining table seats ten and features a glorious multi-toned marble top set on a black granite base. A fabulous double-sided fireplace in the outdoor conversation area accommodates a large recessed television. A sofa and four huge swivel chairs encourage relaxation and are anchored by a stunning area rug that unites all the colors.

A private foyer bids welcome to the enormous master suite. The magnificent bed and nightstands are elevated on a luxurious carpeted platform. Against a backdrop of mother of pearl shell wallpaper in a gray-fawn swirl motif, the hand-carved headboard is upholstered with beautiful pleated chenille fabric. An armoire artfully accommodates a built-in breakfast bar with a refrigerator and sink. The bedroom has been discreetly wired for operating the glamorous drapery treatments and a retractable television stowed in the bed’s footboard. A wall separates the bedroom from a sitting area which also functions as her office with built-in cabinetry, a floating desk, and pretty chaise lounge.

The sumptuous bathroom, wallpapered in silver cork, features an exotic raised island tub finished in elegant granite and flanked by custom stone columns. The shower displays decorative arches on each wall with intricate water jet designs. Elegant dark vanity cabinetry contrasts beautifully with the classic marble flooring that extends into her closet with its push button revolving clothes rack.

The study epitomizes refinement with floor-to-ceiling wood paneling and a matching desk and cabinetry. An elaborate design in the high-polish marble flooring adds distinction.

Upstairs, a gallery hallway provides dramatic views on either side to the first floor. In addition to four guest suites, the second floor includes a vast entertainment area with a wet bar. Tiered theatre seating across from a massive television framed by charcoal gray shelving encourages comfortable lounging. The games area features a second charcoal gray built-in incorporating a window seat, as well as shuffle board and reversible poker tables top or games for children, and another full-size bar. A library area with a cozy chair and lamp completes the scene.
