Vogue Interiors announced designer Leslie Gebert, Allied Member, ASID has completed the interior design for a San Michele residence built by Harbourside Custom Homes in Talis Park’s Fairgrove neighborhood. Fairgrove’s In the Park lifestyle offers stunning golf course, water and preserve views. The “single loaded” neighborhood presents 24 south facing homes on just one side of the street. Unobstructed views to the north include a Talis Park preserve and a golf course in an adjacent community. Italian Renaissance designs honor the more traditional view of Naples’ architecture and are joined by a Spanish Eclectic style that offers a perfect complement.

The San Michele floor plan is perfectly suited to Fairgrove’s park-like ambiance. The spacious 3,693 square feet under air floor plan includes a large great room that flows into a magnificent gourmet island kitchen, a formal dining room, study, craft room, four bedrooms, five full baths plus a pool bath, an outdoor living area with a summer kitchen, fireplace, pool and spa overlooking the Talis Park Golf Club’s picturesque 12th fairway, a two-car garage and a one-car garage.

Gebert’s soft traditional design incorporates a color palette of creams and muted blues with warm taupe accents. Beautiful light fixtures in soft champagnes have been introduced throughout the home with the addition of some contemporary artwork to add flair to the traditional look. With neutral stone flooring in the main living areas, the overall effect is one of soft, light elegance.

A long hallway leads from the foyer to the great room. In this space, Gebert has integrated polished mocha-colored marble borders into the travertine flooring to mirror three rectangular coffers overhead, themselves adorned with a metallic silver leaf covering and cove lighting. A credenza with mirrored door fronts and champagne-toned edges provides the foundation for a large contemporary abstract painting in soft blues.

Three arched openings and columns in the hallway define the entry to the dining room. On the back wall, applied moldings frame mirrored panels to create a dramatic feature wall enhanced by elegant sconces. The ceiling tray is faux finished in soft taupe and champagne and illuminated with subtle cove lighting. A beautiful chandelier is suspended over a rectangular glass top table with a wooden V-shape base featuring traditional moldings. Six dining chairs upholstered in aqua velvet in a laser-cut giraffe print create harmony.

A wet bar conveniently serves both the dining room and the great room. Cream cabinets with a soft brown glaze blend perfectly with a travertine backsplash arranged in a subtle monochromatic harlequin pattern. The base cabinetry and bar are topped with beautiful Taj Mahal quartzite surfaces. Three stylish barstools with low backs provide casual seating.

The spacious great room showcases an impressive feature wall. In the center, a large television is mounted over a chic console in dark wood with capiz shell doors and large circular hardware. On either side, custom base cabinetry finished in glazed cream forms the foundation for tall custom arched structures adorned at the front with distinctive fluted moldings. Stepped back shelving within the arches allows for ornamental display. Across from the television, an oriental rug in soft aqua blues and cream provides the foundation for a comfortable seating arrangement in light neutral tones. A sofa in nubby taupe linen is decorated with pillows in aqua, taupe and cream while two complementary side chairs are finished in soft taupe velvet. In the center, a circular metallic cocktail table features a Greek key edge and a glass top. Overhead, a striking chandelier is suspended from a remarkable octagonal coffered ceiling design. Gorgeous draperies in a tailored inverted pleat frame the wide pocketing sliders and extend into the adjacent breakfast nook. Their tone on tone cream geometric pattern adds drama and elegance to the room.

A kitchen that opens to the great room features a wide island that accommodates four upholstered bar stools and is illuminated by milked glass pendant lights in a restoration hardware style. The island cabinetry is executed in a deep walnut while the perimeter cabinetry has a glazed cream finish. The countertops throughout are a soft creamy gray granite with a suggestion of blue. The same granite extends up for the wall to create a graceful backsplash.

A soft aqua tone-on-tone wallpaper adorns the walls of the adjacent breakfast nook while the draperies provide some creamy contrast. The circular glass top table seats four with traditional framed chairs. The table base in shaped like an hour glass and faux finished to match the kitchen’s perimeter cabinetry.

In the working study, a two-tone custom built-in features file drawer and glass-fronted tower storage on either side of an incorporated desk. In signature Vogue style, an applied molding, similar to a chair rail, encircles the room about 24-inches from the ceiling. Above the molding gray metallic cork wallpaper provides striking contrast with a metallic bronze grass cloth beneath. On the hand-scraped walnut floor, an oriental rug in deeper blues with taupe and cream adds gravitas while to one side a round table and two chairs provides a small conference area. Grommeted cream drapes blend beautifully with the walls while aqua blue accents complement the rug.

The color theme of blues and cream continues in the master suite where elegant furnishings showcase metallic finishes. A tall canopy bed in a champagne metallic is dressed with soft blue linens and creamy pillows. The distressed beige wood nightstands provide glamorous shimmer with antiqued mirrored drawers. A large armoire, also in the champagne metallic finish, features generous cabinet and drawer storage with mullioned glass-fronted towers on either side framing a television. A cream-framed French chair and ottoman upholstered in soft blue chenille, sheer cream draperies, and a delicate champagne chandelier add to the dreamy elegance of the bedroom.

In the master bathroom glazed cream vanity cabinetry and light creamy granite countertops blend beautifully with the neutral stone on the floors and shower walls. A free-standing tub is showcased against a backdrop of glamorous wallpaper in an intricate design of soft blues and metallics. Overhead, the chandelier matches the bedroom.

Outside, Gebert has created a welcoming living space in neutral relaxed tones set against a background of gorgeous stone flooring. At one end, the outdoor kitchen with a granite countertop is accompanied by a bistro table and chairs with an Asian feel – the perfect spot for a glass of wine while supper is grilling. The adjacent dining area features a stylish table with a cream stone top, a woven base in soft butterscotch, and medium-toned metallic legs. The set features matching chairs. At the other end of the wide lanai, a casual seating group is gathered around a stunning floor-to-ceiling corner fireplace adorned with chiseled stone. Here, a wall-mounted television provides additional entertainment. A curved contemporary sofa with a continuous cushion and multiple cream and gold pillows is paired with matching side chairs and a glass top table with a woven base.

Vogue Interiors announced that award-winning interior designer Leslie Gebert, Allied Member, ASID, has completed the interior design of a luxury residence built by Harbourside Custom Homes in Palmira that features an architectural design by Weber Design Group. Gebert’s transitional design brings drama and glitter to the home’s 2,762 square feet under air great room floor plan. The plan includes a formal dining room, an expansive kitchen with a spacious island bar, a study, three bedrooms, three full baths and a pool bath that also serves as a powder room, an entertainment room with a bar, a large covered lanai with a summer kitchen, and a three-car garage.

Gebert’s sophisticated design allows for an exceedingly comfortable, welcoming home, yet she has incorporated drama and shimmer throughout for a show-stopping result. Her color palette is neutral with creams evolving into browns and blacks with touches of silver and gold metallic for glamorous accents. The flooring in the main living areas is a darker porcelain tile with lots of movement in golds, browns and blacks.

The foyer bids welcome with a simple, contemporary ‘rug’ inset in the porcelain floor using a black absolute granite tile with black and white striped borders. Overhead a magnificent, oversized chandelier adds eye-catching sparkle.

Immediately to the left of the foyer, Gebert has created an entertainment room defined by columns and soffit detailing. The space is open to the foyer and living room. Here, a beautiful black baby grand piano creates an immediate statement and is accompanied by elegant bar cabinetry in dark wood with bold hardware and a black marble top set against a wallpapered mica backdrop. A bistro-height table in an espresso tone with four chairs is anchored by a beautiful area rug in camels and golds. Overhead, the octagonal coffered ceiling features a faux finish enhanced by an elegant fan in black and gold. Charming artwork and a striking circular mirror decorate the walls, while the window is dressed with full tied-back drapes in a linen fabric with metallic gold detailing.

Past the foyer, a golf-themed study is entered through double French doors with glass mullions. The coffered ceiling features beige painted beams in a checkerboard pattern with crown molding in all the coffered areas. A grass cloth in creams and light browns covers the walls. A dark gray-brown wooden desk with a distressed finish floats in the center of the space and is paired with a leather executive chair. Behind the desk, matching file cabinets flank a window adorned with a handsome linen drapery treatment. A comfortable armchair sits in one corner, while golfing photographs in brown and sienna tones enhance the scene.

The generous great room has a 14-foot ceiling with checkerboard beige painted beams that create nine coffers detailed with crown molding. The coffers have been elegantly faux finished in a gold and silver metallic to match the entertainment room. Gebert has created two custom columns, adorned with mica wallpaper, to define the ends of the entertainment wall and to showcase magnificent wall sconces. In the center, the focus is created by a handsome console finished in walnut with 8-inch circular silver pulls that look like jewelry. A large screen television is wall-mounted above. The room’s seating arrangement includes a sofa in an off-white chenille fabric with decorative pillows and two tall chairs that display off-white sides and metallic camel and brown giraffe velvet fronts with a dressy sheen. In addition, a contemporary dark leather recliner adds a rich, enticing quality. The round cocktail table is finished in a champagne metallic tone with a glass top and the grouping is anchored by a cream colored shag area rug. The tailored stationary draperies that elegantly frame the pocketing sliders feature inverted pleats in ivory and dark mocha brown. Gebert continues this treatment into the adjacent dining area for a polished look.

The gorgeous dining table features a circular 60-inch glass top table through which the creamy mother of pearl finish to the wood and metal base is visible. This is paired with elegantly upholstered chairs and affords a wonderful vista through the wide angled, mitred window overlooking the outdoor living area.

The kitchen is open to the great room and dining area and features an outer counter-height island with a double sink and extensive bar. Four swivel barstools in a mocha brown tweed allow for comfortable interaction with the dining and great room spaces. The perimeter cabinetry features a traditional raised panel front with a brown glaze and oversized hardware. The cabinetry on the smaller prep island is executed in a dark espresso and blends with the outer island paneling. The countertops showcase an exotic granite in swirling creams, dark browns and blacks. Gebert has selected a specialty backsplash of 12 x 12-inch embossed silver metallic resin squares with a brown washed glaze for a truly exotic look. The interior of a glass-fronted cabinet by the pantry has been faux-finished in silver and gold metallic to highlight the sparkling stemware displayed within.

The master bedroom is entered via a private vestibule where a decorative wall niche features metallic silver wallpaper with a grass cloth overlay that is replicated in the bedroom ceiling coffer. The furniture includes a luxurious bed upholstered and tufted in a neutral velvet, together with nightstands and dresser featuring black cabinets and pearlized white drawers with gold hardware. A tall contemporary wing chair and custom ottoman add comfort and practicality, while the gold chandelier and decorative antiqued mirrors add a touch of extravagant flair. The sumptuous custom bedding with pillows in blacks, creams, whites and silvers, pairs beautifully with the simple drapery treatments featuring bands of color in similar shades.

The master bathroom sparkles with crystals both in the dramatic wall sconces mounted on the vanity mirrors and the bronzed leather chandelier over the tub. The cabinetry is executed in glazed cream with black quartz countertops while the flooring is a 20 x 20-inch light cream porcelain tile. The frameless shower is adorned with a 24-inch horizontal listello in black and brown glass tiles. Tying it all together, a soft champagne metallic wallpaper wraps the room in timeless style.

Outside, beyond the great room’s pocketing sliders, the covered lanai opens to a glorious pool and spa. Four contemporary curved rattan chairs are gathered around a circular cocktail table and area rug, all of which face a handsome fireplace adorned with off-white and gold mica stone work that runs from floor to ceiling. The rectangular fireplace also features a precast stone mantle with a television niche above. Adjacent the outdoor kitchen that includes espresso cabinetry and a leather-finish golden granite countertop, Gebert has selected a glass top dining table with a rattan base that makes a figure-8 design and six matching chairs. Off of the master suite she has created a cozy cigar and lounging area with four upholstered chairs.

Vogue Interiors announced it has completed the design and execution of the interior of Stock Signature Homes’ 3,525 square feet under air Ponte Vedra Grande model residence in Fort Myers’ Renaissance community. The four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath floor plan includes formal living and dining rooms, a study, a large family room and gourmet kitchen, an outdoor living area that includes three covered lanai spaces, an optional summer kitchen, and a pool and spa, and a three-car garage.

Vogue Interiors’ Sheila Corasaniti, I.D.S. has created a light, airy, and exceptionally livable interior for the Ponte Vedra Grande with natural elements that convey a relaxed yet elegant feeling. Light backgrounds in a soft buttery-cream golden tone are mixed with grey and driftwood tones and accents that provide pops of royal blue and metallic gold. Flooring throughout the living areas is a light porcelain tile with a buttery striae that is laid as planks set on the diagonal.

Upon entering the home, the foyer is accented by a beautiful console table with a striking travertine marble top and appears to have been fashioned from metallic gold twigs and branches. Stunning contemporary artwork and a lovely wall mirror provide additional pops of gold.

Beyond the foyer lies the formal living room with its pocketing sliders that open to the lanai. Here, Corasaniti has created a feature wall with built-out columns. Between the columns, which are lighted by chic drum-shaped sconces, a wall-mounted television is displayed against a background of charcoal gray mica wallpaper. A light gray contemporary credenza, with simple unadorned doors, floats below. The luxurious seating arrangement showcases a textured cream sofa paired with light butter colored chairs and another chair upholstered in fine golden silk. Accent pillows in royal blue and butter cream add splashes of rich color. The cocktail table and end tables feature a driftwood finish with bronze accents. A separate table repeating the unusual gold twig design coordinates with the foyer table. Framing the sliding patio doors, long Dupioni drapes, in twisted butter and gray silk, create an elegant statement. A soft cream shag area rug adds the finishing touch.

The dining room features an elegant coffered ceiling detail. A glass top rectangular dining table and six chairs finished in a pewter gray patterned fabric are paired with a light cream credenza to form a stylish grouping. The drapes are extremely elegant, featuring the butter silk from the living room with a coordinating silver and gold thread detail at the top and a unique flowing trim.

To the right of the foyer, the study is entered via double doors and features a continuation of the wood-look porcelain tile. A caramel toned maple cabinet features open bookcases with accessories in the featured accent colors of cream and royal blue. The desk is finished in a light wood and is paired with a chair of cream linen. To one side, a comfortable accent chair in light butter colored wood displays a seat upholstered in sumptuous royal blue velvet. At the windows, side panels in soft gauzy tones are suspended from a curved cornice with textured leather detailing.

In the spacious kitchen, the cabinetry is executed in a muted cream tone with counter surfaces in striking blue pearl granite for contrast. The modern backsplash features large glass rectangles in a light blue gray color that picks up the opalescence of the granite. A large rectangular counter height island provides seating for casual dining in the form of comfortable bar stools with neutral upholstered backs.

The adjacent breakfast nook features a circular table with a glass top and woven base in curious driftwood tones paired with contemporary woven wicker chairs. A mitred glass window provides expansive views to the outdoor living area.

Beyond the kitchen and breakfast nook, the light and bright family room provides wide pocketing sliders on two walls that open the entire room to the lanai and pool. By continuing the kitchen accent colors throughout this area, Corasaniti has created a calming atmosphere with soothing light blue gray hues on the feature wall. Here, a wall niche houses a light cream console set beneath a wall mounted television. A welcoming sectional sofa laid out in a partial octagon arrangement is finished in a casual creamy linen with fun accent pillows in metallic golds, creams, and blue metallic leather.

The quintessential Florida lifestyle with its seamless transition from indoor to outdoor living is a spectacular feature of the Ponte Vedra Grande model. The outdoor space is accessible from the living room, family room and master bedroom. Outside the family room is the summer kitchen with a grill and a walk-up bar with bar stools. The cabinetry is finished in a deep espresso color while the counters and bar top are executed in a light granite. A cozy table with matching chairs is available nearby for casual dining. In the pool bath, Corasaniti has created a dramatic free form design of river rock on the shower wall.

The lanai behind the living room provides an ideal conversation area with comfortable curved sofas and curved ottomans, gathered around a circular cocktail table, almost creating the look of a wheel. Within the cocktail table, a built-in ice bucket provides the perfect place to chill wine while relaxing with guests. The backless ottomans add to the sense of openness in this area while providing additional seating. The clean-lined furniture, finished in espresso with cream upholstery, displays a contemporary flair. Accents in royal blue and grays provide splashes of color to tie everything together.

The master bedroom opens up to its own intimate covered lanai with two lounge chairs and an ottoman that will allow the owners to enjoy some private relaxation time. The bedroom color scheme continues with the golds, creams, and grays creating a glorious background for the luxurious bed with its light cream upholstered headboard, side and foot rails. The bed’s fabric is framed with a striking silver metal border for a unique look. The sumptuous bed linens are displayed in creams and butter with some pale gold and gray tones. Metallic gold accents sparkle on the pillows for a glamorous air. The night stands and dresser are finished in a gray stain with some mirroring. A comfortable accent chair and ottoman by the window are finished in an attractive off-white fabric.

The flooring in the master bathroom is a beautiful porcelain tile with the look of marble. Across the back of the room, a walk-through shower provides the backdrop for a free-standing tub with entries to the shower on either side. Behind the tub, a half wall with glass above provides a glimpse of the shower’s decorative tile detailing and dramatic listello in metallic gold glass. The his and her vanity cabinetry is executed in cream with counter surfaces in a very light Botticino Classico marble. Glamorous metallic silver wallpaper provides an opulent air, accented with gold glass beads in a swirl pattern, reflecting the drama of the glimmering gold on the shower walls.

Beautiful custom ceiling details will be found throughout the home.

Gebert and Corasaniti’s light, simply tailored look for the San Remo is designed to reflect the home’s open and airy floor plan. The floor and wall coverings provide a foundation of soft grays, chromes, and creams with hints of citron. The flooring in the main living area is a 9 x 36-inch wood-look ceramic tile in a soft cream that continues into the dining room and study.

Crossing the wide gallery into the tremendous great room, the sense of light airy space is evident everywhere. The ceiling features a suspended painted beam detail running front to back with extraordinary backlighting. A comfortable sofa in a neutral cream tone linen, accented with chic pillows in tones of gray, gold and cream, faces the television wall. Two upholstered chairs with a subdued gold geometric pattern on a cream background add character while a soft gray rug anchors the space together with two mirrored rectangular cocktail tables. The seating group is arranged across from a console with a chrome base and a cream colored chagrin leather front with large circular chrome pulls. Overhead, a large wall-mounted television is set against a backdrop of dove gray mica wallpaper. A narrow horizontal niche over the television reveals a decorative planter while two tall niches on the right showcase towering vases filled with organic displays.

The great room flows seamlessly into a spacious kitchen with two counter-height islands that provide an integrated sense of connection. The base cabinetry on the outer island is executed in a dark graphite tone while the inner island and perimeter cabinetry are finished in white with a pewter glaze. Distinctive granite counter tops showcase intricate movement in pleasing light tones of creams and warm grays. Tying everything together, a glamorous specialty backsplash features a laser cut glass tile that produces the effect of a silver metallic figure eight against a soft white background. Simple, low-backed barstools are featured at the outer island as well as at the wet bar located just off the kitchen. Gebert and Corasaniti have used the same granite at the bar, but with a backsplash in a dark reflective glitzy glass tile for added pizzazz.

The upholstered bed with its tufted headboard and footboard is flanked by nightstands in a combination of black wood and off-white leather. Dramatic drop lights are attractively suspended over each nightstand. A long low dresser from the same collection is positioned across from the bed with a television wall-mounted above.

The master bathroom features light ceramic tile, vanity cabinetry executed in glazed white, and luxurious countertops in the themed tones of white, cream, and gray. A free-standing tub is flanked on either side by entries into a large walk-in shower where a listello detail in a chrome-look glass tile adds glamor.

Their soft color palette incorporates muted silvers, pewters, and tans with accents of dusty plum and sea glass blue. The soft tan walls and lighter trim coordinate perfectly with the beautiful marble flooring in the main living areas showcasing swirls of soft tans and taupe. The fabrics, too, are light in tone, but durable and functional. The overall ambiance conveys elegance and comfort.

Upon entry, a mosaic of polished marble tiles inset into the foyer flooring creates an immediate impression, extending with a rug effect along the grand hallway into the great room. Overhead, three dramatic ceiling trays, each displaying a beautiful lantern pendant, balance the flooring design. A stunning mirrored-finish console provides the foundation for glamorous artwork.

The grand hallway opens on the right to a formal dining room defined by square columns adorned with a contemporary flat molding.

The master suite is entered by means of a double door entry from the gallery hallway. A glamorous vestibule with fauxed ceiling, soft lighting, and a wall niche displaying shimmery wallpaper provide a sense of arrival to a luxurious bedroom decorated in tones of plums, soft tans, and off-white.

Vogue Interiors announced interior designer Deborah Paulin, ASID, NCIDQ has completed the interior design of a completely remodeled residence in Pelican Landing. The home’s 3,569 square feet under air floor plan includes formal living and dining rooms, three bedrooms, four full baths, a beautiful island kitchen, dinette, and family room, and a beautifully appointed outdoor living area. Paulin’s design intention was to provide the homeowner with an up-to-date, comfortable home that presented a high degree of livability. The remodeling effort included completely removing existing walls, creating a more open, flowing living environment, and establishing a color palette that includes soft putty-toned backgrounds with off-white trim, green and plum accents, warm hardwood flooring in the hallways, living and dining rooms, carpeting in the study, and 12 x 24-inch porcelain tile in the kitchen and family room.

Upon entry into this home, the elegant foyer immediately affords lovely views through the living room to the pool area and lake beyond. To enhance the sense of openness, Paulin’s design removed a wall that had previously closed off the dining room to the left of the foyer and reconnected the space to the living room. Other walls that had closed off a separate wet bar near the kitchen were also removed to create a wider hallway and allow for an open and free-standing wet bar conveniently accessible from the living room, dining room, dinette and family room. The revised plan creates a sense of definitive welcome into a spacious, free-flowing, and open home.

Built for a rectangular table, the dining room presented a challenge as the homeowners preferred a circular table for ease of conversation. Paulin added a creative ceiling detail to coordinate with a circular table below for a perfectly natural look, as if it had always been planned that way. An ideal, shallow buffet in silver metallic wood with an antique mirror detail trimmed in gold now coordinates elegantly with a round glass top table. The table’s wood base is highlighted by decorative metal detailing. The dining chairs are transitional in style with wood frames and an attractive green chenille upholstery.

Just off the foyer as it transitions into the living room, Paulin has incorporated a chest with the same eye-catching finish as the dining room buffet. In the living room, a welcoming seating arrangement is gathered in front of the feature wall where the original architectural detailing has been preserved. The grouping showcases a large neutral chenille sofa in taupy camel and two end tables in dark wood. Two extra-wide lounge chairs in the same neutral fabric complete the symmetrical layout. Reflecting the homeowners’ requested colors, Paulin’s accent pillows feature a signature modern floral design in greens and plums. The central cocktail table features glass over a pierced silver-painted wood frame for a very light, fresh effect.

Leaving the living room, a dinette connects with the kitchen and family room beyond. Based on the homeowners’ desire for convivial gatherings of family and friends, Paulin completely redesigned the kitchen to create space in the dinette area for a large round table to seat eight. This involved extensive remodeling including the removal of suspended plant shelves, and the addition of a central counter height working island with decorative corbels. Paulin included bar stool seating for three so that visitors can be included in kitchen activities. The island and perimeter cabinetry is beautifully executed in a taupe colored wood with stunning granite counter tops in tones of pale green, silver and taupe. The custom tile backsplash in a brick pattern with filigree decoration is enhanced by a stylish medallion over the stove area. A custom range hood and charming ceiling detail over the island add further pizzazz.

Following the homeowners’ desire for ample seating in the family room, Paulin’s design includes a large corner sectional in a nubby woven fabric, again in the taupy camel. Sofa pillows in print and plaid add pops of the green and plum tones. Two reclining chairs in a green fabric and plaid pillows coordinate perfectly. An old fireplace was removed at the end of this room and replaced with French doors that create additional light and lead out to rear of the home. Crown molding was added around the perimeter of the room for elegant emphasis.

Paulin’s design has dramatically improved the outdoor living area located directly outside of the family room. The remodeled design involved extending the roof line which in turn had the beneficial effect of increasing the size of the adjacent guest bedroom. An outdoor kitchen with seating was added in this area with a separate dining area just off of the slider from the family room. The contractor also added a fire pit and created a second seating group. The pool and hot tub area were completely refinished using a beautiful modular pattern in travertine stone.

In the master bedroom, Paulin’s glamourous design includes dark wood furnishings with a fully upholstered bed in easy neutral tones. The headboard features wing walls that create a sense of being cocooned and cozy. Beautiful artwork above the bed lends a sense of dramatic flair. At the foot of the bed, the dresser not only stores clothing but also houses the equipment for the television mounted above. Large, interesting nightstands in dark wood on either side of the bed make remarkable statement pieces. The walls are painted in soft putty tones with white trim for a neutral background. Paulin dropped the ceiling detail to incorporate a striking circular motif for a current, modern look.

As in the kitchen, Paulin completely renovated the master bathroom with a fresh design. She created new his and her vanity areas with medium wood toned cabinetry and gorgeous granite counter tops. She also introduced a modern free-standing bathtub and artfully incorporated the same granite behind the tub in a wainscot topped with a listello tile that is also repeated in the shower. The shower itself is now a frameless all glass walk-in shower with no door, for a bright open look. As an ornamental showpiece, Paulin relocated the original dining chandelier which is visible from the street through a tall arched window.

“I feel this home, remodeled and modernized, will live wonderfully for this couple,” stated Paulin. “There’s nothing I enjoy more than listening carefully and incorporating features that reflect the needs and wishes of my clients in a style that will make them feel comfortable and proud of their home. In this case, the couple has a relative who is handicapped so we remodeled the pool bath so that it would accommodate a wheelchair, right into the shower. The end result is both aesthetically beautiful and practical. And that’s ultimately the goal. We provided a completely new look and the homeowners are delighted.”

Vogue Interiors announced it has completed the design and execution of the interior of Stock Signature Homes’ Windsor model residence at Quail West. The Windsor is one of over twenty furnished models being showcased during the 2015 Joint, Single-Site CBIA-LBIA Parade of Homes being held at Quail West today and Friday, February 6 through Sunday, February 8. Hours on Fridays and Saturdays are 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sundays 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Windsor model’s elegant, 4,155 square feet under air great room floor plan includes a formal dining area, a gourmet island kitchen and breakfast area, a study, three bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, an exercise room, a club room, an outdoor living area with a fireplace and summer kitchen, and two two-car garages.

Vogue’s Sheila Corasaniti, IDS has created a serene, comfortable interior style to accentuate the Windsor’s architectural design that includes numerous ceiling details and applied moldings. Her exceptionally soft color palette includes pewter, pale grey, celery green, and off-white tones with celery green, apricot, silver and metallic accents. White porcelain tile with grey veining in the living areas conveys a Carrara marble look, while the weathered grey tones of the porcelain tile in the study has a wood-like feeling.

Visitors to the Windsor are greeted in a foyer flanked by niches with a beaded grass cloth wall covering in a soft celery tone. Each of the niches features impressive art pieces. The foyer provides a view through the great room’s pocketing sliders of the Windsor’s grand outdoor living area and pool. A feature wall in the great room includes two columns framing a wall-mounted television. Each of the columns includes sconce lighting fixtures. A wet bar is situated to the right of the television wall. To the left, Corasaniti has created a low built-in with a pewter finish and a white granite top with flecks of grey. A shelf for displaying collectibles is set on the wall above the built-in.

A white sofa with soft ribbed chenille fabric, contemporary tufting, an attractive channel back design detail, and large decorative pillows provides a focal point in the great room’s conversation area. Other furnishings include light white open-sided chairs, a chrome and glass cocktail table with a geometric pattern on the legs, one glass end table with a wood shelf in a washed grey finish, a second tiered end table in an ivory finish with chrome, and a beautiful textured shag area rug.

The dining room showcases the Windsor’s extensive use of applied molding details. The walls above a chair rail are finished in a dark charcoal grey while applied moldings create contemporary wainscoting panels below the rail. A rectangular all-wood pedestal dining table is finished in a cool grey with a metallic overlay and surrounded by chairs with pewter finished legs and grey-toned fabric. Corasaniti has selected a built-in with a cream finish and a light neutral granite to fill the room’s niche wall. A beautifully designed mirror is hung above the built-in. Cream-toned silk draperies complete the look.

Corasaniti finished the kitchen’s large counter height island with a light grey base that plays against white perimeter cabinetry. Counter surfaces throughout the room are white granite with specs of light celeries and greys. Clean-lined high-back barstools line the island and are presented with a striping effect using cream vinyl and chrome. The kitchen also includes a walk-in pantry with a door finished to appear as an extension of the cabinetry.

The adjoining breakfast nook is defined by a semi-circular window overlooking the outdoor living area. Corasaniti furnished the space with a glass-topped pedestal table and chairs executed in an oatmeal linen fabric with chrome nail head trim and wooden legs with a smoked finish. A contemporary lighting fixture with wavy textured glass is highlighted by a chrome band.

Corasaniti has designed the Windsor’s club room to convey a decidedly masculine feeling with numerous textures and details. The room includes a full wet bar with a granite countertop, dark-toned cabinetry, bar sink, and beverage refrigerator. A television is hung above the bar. Closets with French doors painted in the trim color flank the bar to provide a den-like feeling. A dark-toned, wood-like tile floor and a coffered ceiling with a velour-like smoky grey wall covering detail contribute to the masculine feeling of the space. Matching oversized contemporary wing chairs with a pinstripe pattern flank a console presented in a charcoal, weathered wood look. Additional seating is provided by a light grey sofa with hide pillows.

A beautiful custom built-in brings both elegance and functionality to the study. Lower closed filing cabinetry is finished in a cream tone with a grey top, while the built-in two-toned desk features a cream top and silver metallic legs. Open bookcases are set above the lower cabinetry. The desk chair is in a washed driftwood with a medallion pattern. An accent chair presents a wavy pattern also reflected in a cornice board that includes side panels with a silver metallic fabric.

Just off the hallway leading to the master suite, the Windsor’s exercise room offers a full complement of workout equipment, including a stationary bike, an elliptical machine, free weights, an exercise ball, a yoga mat, jump rope, a bench to sit on, and mirrored walls. Corasaniti has covered the walls with a faux leather and used a tight, low nap Berber carpeting with soft cushioning on the floor. Double doors open the space to the outdoor living area.

Corasaniti has created an exquisite contemporary upholstered bed with grey metallic tufted linen fabric and crystal Swarovski nail head details in a diamond pattern for the master bedroom. Matching night stands with mirrored-front drawers and a dresser are presented in a cream finish. An elegant sunburst mirror is set above the dresser. Matching pearlescent faux leather chairs with chrome arms and legs flank a metallic-silver table in the sitting area.

The master bath features light, two-toned greyish-taupe and white porcelain tile flooring, a free-standing tub, contemporary mirrors, and sconce lighting. The vanity cabinetry is finished in a light cream tone with light creamy granite countertops and chrome fixtures. Tile designs with reflective metallic and silver materials are presented in the shower.

The Windsor’s expansive outdoor living area reflects Stock’s penchant for creating inviting outdoor spaces. Corasaniti has chosen swivel lounge chairs and a sofa for the conversation area in front of a fireplace that has contemporary woven frames in a pale driftwood color and light sail cloth fabric with apricot and celery accent pillows. The fireplace wall is presented in an alternating horizontal pattern of textured cream chiseled stone and smooth stone. The outdoor kitchen’s backsplash presents a similar pattern and complement a chiseled stone detail on the back wall. The kitchen includes an L-shaped counter-height island with a granite counter surface and barstools in a weathered grey metal.

Founded in 1979, Vogue Interiors has earned numerous national, regional and local awards, including three consecutive Aurora Awards, the highest award presented by the 12-state Southeast Builders Conference. 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 award-winning interior designer Leslie Gebert, Allied Member, ASID, has completed the interior design of a luxury residence built by Artisan Associates in Marsala at Tiburon that features an architectural design by Stofft Cooney Architects. Gebert’s elegant design brings a sense of timelessness to the home’s 4,306 square feet under air two-story floor plan. The plan includes formal living and dining rooms, an expansive double-island kitchen and family room, a study, four bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths including a pool bath, a multi-purpose upstairs loft, a large covered lanai with a summer kitchen, bar, and fireplace, and a three-car garage that has been finished as a mechanic’s work space where the owner is free to pursue his passion for antique car restoration.

Gebert’s design incorporates various new and existing furniture pieces and the owner’s antique Oriental rug and Lladro porcelain figurine collections against a soft color palette that includes beiges, golds, and reds. Porcelain tile flooring is featured throughout the living areas while the study presents a dark-toned wood floor. A central staircase showcases painted risers contrasted by walnut-finished treads.

The grandness of the residence is evident upon entry to a soaring two-story foyer that is finished in a creamy white. A lightly distressed decorative chest with gold metallic accents is set in a niche painted a soft khaki color and bedecked with an attractive art piece. A circular Oriental rug from the owner’s collection provides an additional note of welcome.

The foyer leads to a spacious living room with a fireplace and a see-through view of the pool and Marsala’s hallmark natural setting. A pair of columns is used to distinguish the boundaries of the living room and an adjacent formal dining room. Nine ceiling coffers set in a 3 x 3 pattern are finished with crown molding and painted to match the khaki tone in the foyer niche. A large silver and gold chandelier contributes to the elegance of the space. A ten-by-thirteen-foot red, cream, and gold Oriental rug provides the basis for the living room’s color scheme. Built-in glass library-style display shelves showcasing the owner’s Lladro porcelain figurines are set in arched niches that flank a gas fireplace with a traditional stone mantle and a decorative mirror. The top-lighted shelving is presented against a metallic gold cork wallpaper. Furnishings include a slubby beige sofa with curved arms, a French chair and ottoman in a gold chenille fabric, a large swivel chair in a neutral chenille fabric that is placed next to a baby-grand piano, and a circular cocktail table with a wooden base accented by a gold band and a glass top. A mirrored console table is placed behind the sofa. Walnut end tables on either side of the sofa showcase gold specialty lamps with hand-painted silver and gold paper shades. Three sets of double French doors leading to the outside are framed by a tailored metallic gold pleated linen window treatment with red gussets.

A smaller version of the living room’s silver and gold chandelier combines with country-French furnishings and a red Oriental rug to create an elegant and very large formal dining space. Gebert brought additional elegance and visual appeal to the space by designing a hexagonal flat ceiling treatment finished to match the metallic gold cork wallpaper in the living room’s niches. Drapery fabrics that match those used in the living room are presented with a swag treatment.

The home’s massive double-island kitchen features cream-toned raised panel island bases and perimeter cabinetry with creamy Colonial Gold counter surfaces and a cream-toned rectangular subway tile backsplash. Black leather barstools are set at the counter-height outer island and offer a gathering place while entertaining. An adjacent breakfast nook includes a distressed country French circular table and seating for four.

The kitchen’s color scheme is continued in the family room where Gebert has chosen to incorporate various black elements to provide contrast. A twelve-foot ceiling contributes to the room’s spacious feeling. The feature wall showcases a cream-toned console, large television, and an attractive art piece. Linen draperies framing a pair of double French doors include a black linen leading edge and red and black eyelash fringe that creates character. A cream-toned linen sofa, red leather recliner, matching side chairs with beige and black tweed on the outside and beige chenille on the inside, and a square cocktail table are set against a red, black, and cream area rug. The family room opens to a covered lanai where there is a conversation area with a sofa, side chairs, and a card table as well as a dining area adjacent to the summer kitchen. The pool’s soft blue tile picks up the tones of the upholstery on the outdoor space’s furnishings.

The study’s dark hardwood flooring plays against a beamed ceiling detail with a coffer finished in the same color as the ceiling and creamy Navaho white backgrounds with white trim. A tall, narrow French display piece finished in black is set against a long wall and includes a television. On the opposite wall, a cream colored velvet sofa with salmon-red piping complements an area rug with similar cream and salmon-red tones. Off-white embroidered linen draperies include red fret work. A narrow desk and chair set in front of the windows provides a place for computer use.

The walls of the master suite’s substantial vestibule are accented with captivating art pieces. A dark gold cut-loop pattern rug plays against the bedroom’s dark beige wall and ceiling tone. Gebert has created an interesting applied molding detail to complement a tufted velvet, straight-lined upholstered headboard. The detail includes vertical pieces that extend from the floor to just below ceiling height, a chair rail dropped slightly from ceiling height, and two horizontal rows of molding that run all the way around the room. Distressed wood night stands featuring antique mirrored drawers with a fret work overlay are placed adjacent to the vertical applied moldings. The custom bedding is presented in cream and gold tones and includes a large decorative pillow that extends the width of the king-sized bed. Draperies divided into beige horizontal sections top and bottom and a gold horizontal section in the middle play against a large distressed wood dresser flanked by soft beige, gold and aqua blue art pieces. Matching upholstered skirted chairs with a beige tone-on-tone fabric provide seating at a window overlooking the outdoor living area that can be accessed by a French door.

The master bath’s soft cream and gold Travertine flooring is also used on the tub deck and complements the room’s muted ivory backgrounds that include nicely sized metallic gold medallions. His and her vanities include granite counter surfaces. The shower’s floor and walls are also finished in the soft, creamy Travertine with a matching four-inch by four-inch Listello and a stone rope molding detail that provides texture.

Vogue Interiors announced designers Leslie Gebert, Allied Member, ASID, and Sheila Herrera, IDS have created an interior that exudes both sophisticated elegance and casual comfort for Harbourside Custom Homes’ Casa Arianna furnished model residence under construction in Seneca at Talis Park. The interior design takes full advantage of the long-range water and double or triple fairway views afforded by Seneca’s choice lakefront home sites that showcase Talis Park’s hallmark “In the Park” living experience.

Harbourside’s 3,935 square feet Casa Arianna great room floor plan includes a wide gallery entry hallway offering a see-through view, a formal dining room, a wet bar, a gourmet kitchen with a large island and a breakfast nook overlooking a view of the outdoors, a study, a lady’s study, four bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, a spacious outdoor living area with an optional summer kitchen, an optional fireplace, pool and spa, a two-car garage, and a one-car garage. The great room and master bedroom open to the outdoor living area to create a captivating indoor/outdoor living experience that pays homage to Seneca’s one-of-a-kind setting. Construction of the Casa Arianna is expected to be completed by January.

Gebert and Herrera’s inspirational design reflects the casual elegance of the Casa Arianna’s open and inviting floorplan. Their soft color palette incorporates muted silvers, pewters, and tans with accents of dusty plum and sea glass blue. The soft tan walls and lighter trim will coordinate perfectly with the beautiful marble flooring in the main living areas showcasing swirls of soft tans and taupe. The fabrics, too, will be light in tone, but durable and functional. The overall ambiance will exude elegance and comfort.

Upon entry, a mosaic of polished marble tiles inset into the foyer flooring will create an immediate impression, extending with a rug effect along the grand hallway into the great room. Overhead, three dramatic ceiling trays, each displaying a beautiful lantern pendant, will balance the flooring design. A stunning mirrored-finish console will provide the foundation for glamorous artwork.

The grand hallway opens on the right to a formal dining room defined by square columns adorned with a contemporary flat molding. On the back wall, moldings will be applied in an artful framework, inset with mirrors for added pizzazz. The glass-topped dining table with a double espresso-toned pedestal base will be paired with six contemporary wing chairs. Overhead, within the tray, a dramatic drop ceiling will feature a faux finish with beautiful sparkling crystals.

Just off the dining room, a walk-in wet bar will offer additional functionality with a counter height bar that opens to the gallery hallway. Multi-level light taupe cabinets, some with glass fronts, will be complemented by marble-like quartz countertops.

The great room will showcase a feature wall adorned by shimmering textured wallpaper and displaying a gorgeous gas fireplace with an 80-inch television above. Painted columns on either side of the fireplace and television will feature a modern applied molding detail to frame attractive light sconces. Beyond the columns, glass shelves with storage doors below will provide practical display space. A linen colored sofa with contemporary style tufting and two arm chairs in taupe with silver nail heads will provide an inviting seating arrangement. The end tables will feature a gray wood tone with silver hardware, while a blonde patent leather ottoman will serve as a cocktail table. A cream area rug with a very unusual shag pile will complete the scene while beautiful side panel drapes frame the wide glass sliders.

For the kitchen, Herrera and Gebert have selected clean-lined, off-white linen cabinets with a chocolate glaze and simple shaker-style doors, also replicated on the spacious counter-height island where corner post legs will add detail and flair. Above the island, pendant lights with an open lantern look will highlight the extraordinary granite countertops featuring waves of movement in taupes, grays, and linens. A decorative tile backsplash will add the finishing touch.

Adjacent to the kitchen, the breakfast nook offers glorious views to the pool area through angled mitered windows. Here the window treatment, with shaped cornices, will coordinate with the great room drapes. A round glass-topped table, with a drum chandelier overhead, will feature a charcoal-toned pedestal base with the look of a giant spring. The charcoal chairs will be upholstered in an off-white micro harlequin pattern.

Outside, the large covered lanai features a perimeter kitchen along the wall at one end with espresso-toned cabinetry and granite countertops. A modern square metal table in an espresso finish, featuring a top with stone center, will coordinate with four chairs displaying handsome plum-colored cushions. In addition, a large rectangular glass-topped dining table and six chairs, executed in a woven taupe wicker, will offer casual entertaining space. At the far side, a conversation area with a loveseat, easy chairs and a cocktail table will be grouped around a gorgeous outdoor fireplace featuring floor to ceiling tile in a stone color punctuated at regular intervals by decorative banding.

The master suite is entered by means of a double door entry from the gallery hallway. A glamorous vestibule with fauxed ceiling, soft lighting, and a wall niche displaying shimmery wallpaper will provide a sense of arrival into the luxurious bedroom decorated in tones of plums, soft tans, and off-white. Faux detailing will be continued on the ceiling where a magnificent chandelier will coordinate with the vestibule and master bathroom. The bed and splendid headboard will have a contemporary, upholstered look, flanked by night stands in an antique mirrored finish which will perfectly coordinate with an off-white triple dresser with silver pulls. Two high back contemporary wing chairs and multi-colored silk drapes will complete the scene.

The flooring in the master bathroom will be executed in an off-white porcelain tile with the look of travertine. His and her vanities on either side of a free-standing tub in the corner of the room will be finished in a linen color with a chocolate glaze. The vanity countertops will showcase a very light marble with dramatic swirls of taupe, charcoal, and cream. The shower tile will coordinate perfectly with the flooring.

The study, located at the rear of the home, will feature a custom built-in with a credenza and bookcases in medium brown tones, and a floating desk in front. The walls will be decorated with applied moldings in a stylish design, inset with a quilted-look charcoal wallpaper. Attractive accent chairs on either side of a decorative box table will complement the handsome draperies.

At the front of the home, Gebert and Herrera have created a lady’s study featuring an espresso finish desk with chrome legs and a taupe fabric chair with nail heads. Here, a sleeper sofa in a light cream fabric and leather ottoman will lend practicality to this stylish retreat with its blue-toned area rug and beautiful drapes.

Vogue Interiors announced designers Leslie Gebert, Allied Member, ASID, and Sheila Herrera, IDS have created an interior that exudes both sophisticated elegance and luxurious comfort for Harbourside Custom Homes’ Villa San Remo furnished model residence under construction in Seneca at Talis Park. The interior design takes full advantage of the long-range water and double or triple fairway views afforded by Seneca’s choice lakefront home sites that showcase Talis Park’s hallmark “In the Park” living experience.

The 3,658 square feet under air Villa San Remo model’s floor plan features a spacious 29-foot by 20-foot great room, a formal dining room, a wet bar, a double-island gourmet kitchen and breakfast nook, a study, three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, an outdoor living area with a large covered terrace, gas fireplace, outdoor kitchen, pool and spa, and a three-car garage. The home’s covered entry opens to a foyer and wide gallery hallway that provide a see-though view of the great room, outdoor living area and pool, and Seneca’s spectacular views. The great room, study, and master bedroom all open to the outdoor living area to create a captivating indoor/outdoor living experience that pays homage to Seneca’s one-of-a-kind setting. Beautiful custom ceiling details will be found throughout the home. Construction of the Villa San Remo is expected to be completed by January.

Gebert and Herrera’s light, simply tailored look for the San Remo is designed to reflect the home’s open and airy floor plan. The floor and wall coverings will provide a foundation of soft grays, chromes, and creams with hints of citron. The flooring in the main living area will be a 9 x 36-inch wood-look ceramic tile in a soft cream that will continue into the dining room and study. A lovely, long gallery hallway just beyond the foyer will feature a coordinating solid 12 x 36-inch porcelain tile which, in combination with widely spaced columns, will define the entry into the great room.

The grand entry foyer affords immediate views through the columned gallery to the great room, pool, lanai, and panoramic views beyond. A wall niche will be stylishly adorned with faux wood wallpaper in varying tones of gray and beautiful artwork. Stepping into the gallery, the eye will be drawn to a display at one end where a magnificent wall covering by Elitis will provide an element of drama with its black background and artistic gold foil design.

To the left of the foyer, the open dining room is defined by elegant columns. A rectangular table with a contemporary chrome base and cream wood top will be complemented by casual looking upholstered chairs in a neutral linen with chrome nail head detailing. Beautiful sheer draperies in creams and taupes will soften the large window. A wall niche, decorated with faux wood wallpaper to match the foyer niche, will display exciting artwork.

Crossing the wide gallery into the tremendous great room, the sense of light airy space is evident everywhere. The ceiling will feature a suspended painted beam detail running front to back with extraordinary backlighting. A comfortable sofa in a neutral cream tone linen, accented with chic pillows in tones of gray, gold and cream, will face the television wall. Two upholstered chairs with a subdued gold geometric pattern on a cream background will add character while a soft gray rug will anchor the space together with two mirrored rectangular cocktail tables. The seating group will be arranged across from a console with a chrome base and a cream colored chagrin leather front with large circular chrome pulls. Overhead, a large wall-mounted television will be set against a backdrop of dove gray mica wallpaper. A narrow horizontal niche over the television will reveal a decorative planter while two tall niches on the right will showcase towering vases filled with organic displays.

The great room will flow seamlessly into a spacious kitchen with two counter-height islands that will provide an integrated sense of connection. The base cabinetry on the outer island will be executed in a dark graphite tone while the inner island and perimeter cabinetry will be finished in white with a pewter glaze. Distinctive granite counter tops will showcase intricate movement in pleasing light tones of creams and warm grays. Tying everything together, a glamorous specialty backsplash will feature a laser cut glass tile that produces the effect of a silver metallic figure eight against a soft white background. Simple, low-backed barstools will be featured at the outer island as well as at the wet bar located just off the kitchen. Gebert and Herrera will use the same granite at the bar, but with a backsplash in a dark reflective glitzy glass tile for added pizzazz.

A generous and comfortable breakfast nook with wide mitred glass windows will feature a square glass top table with an open wood base. Four wood framed chairs, upholstered in a neutral texture, will blend perfectly.

The high-ceilinged, oversized study at the rear of the home will feature an artful combination of two contrasting wallpapers, a chair rail, and high wainscoting for a warm sophisticated look. Tall custom built-in shelving displays will flank a floating desk in driftwood and metal tones. A leather study chair and two upholstered chairs will provide style, comfort, and practicality.

The covered lanai of the San Remo features three distinct areas for relaxing and entertaining. The area immediately off of the great room features a large conversation area that will include two curved gray sofas with patterned accent pillows in grays, creams, and golds, gathered around a matching circular gray ottoman. The dining area will feature a contemporary rectangular glass top table and six chairs in a woven gray metallic. The adjacent outdoor kitchen cabinetry will be finished in espresso with a countertop in a light gray leather finish. A second conversation area is located behind the study where a luxurious fireplace will provide the focus for four upholstered lounge chairs.

Entered through a private vestibule, the master bedroom showcases a striking color palette of black and cream. The upholstered bed with its tufted headboard and footboard will be flanked by nightstands in a combination of black wood and off-white leather. Dramatic drop lights will be attractively suspended over each nightstand. A long low dresser from the same collection will be positioned across from the bed with a television wall-mounted above.

The master bathroom will feature light ceramic tile, vanity cabinetry executed in glazed white, and luxurious countertops in the themed tones of white, cream, and gray. A free-standing tub will be flanked on either side by entries into a large walk-in shower where a listello detail in a chrome-look glass tile will add glamor. The wall covering will showcase a metallic troweled effect in shades of creamy grays.
