Vogue Interior Design News

Vogue Interiors’ Leslie Gebert, ASID and Licensed Interior Designer Christie Heeb have completed the remodeling of the outdated interior of a 15-year old, 3,755 square foot residence in the award-winning Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club community. Their design concept was focused on transforming the home’s heavy Tuscan look into fresh, unified, on-trend spaces that convey a clean, uncluttered, and engaging feeling. At the same time, the designers established an undeniable connection between the interior and the residence’s spectacular revamped outdoor living area by utilizing a color palette in the primary living areas that includes soft aqua blues with off-white and coral accents. Their new color palette, combined with the introduction of up-to-date finishes and, in some cases, new, meticulously vetted furniture pieces and lighting fixtures, have created a relaxed, inviting ambiance that more accurately reflects today’s Southwest Florida luxury lifestyle.

The designers’ new look is immediately evident in the foyer where soft white backgrounds and trim are complemented by an entry rug fashioned in soft taupes and creams, a faux finished ceiling with a new ceiling fan, and niches papered with metallic grass cloth, all of which blends nicely with the home’s neutral, marbleized square porcelain tile flooring. Immediately adjacent to the foyer, an intimate living room features a built-in shelving unit that has been refinished with a lighter tone and a metallic grass cloth background to suit the new look. Four chairs done in a neutral cream tone with ivory, aqua, and coral accent pillows were added and surround a new glass cocktail table. A new thickly textured area rug anchors the grouping. The designers also included a new ceiling fan.

In a new remodeled home with an abundance of design highlights, the new look in the huge dining room is perhaps the biggest highlight of all. The room’s original look included heavy, rust-toned Tuscan furnishings, including a long rectangular stone table with a travertine top and stone bases, upholstered Tuscan chairs, and a tall, dark, Tuscan-style buffet. The designers kept the soft beige travertine-topped table that seats eight and provided new, more contemporary dining chairs with a metallic textured faux leather on the front and inside and a teal fabric on the backs. A memory point of the new design is a highly unique hammered metal LED lighting fixture with an illuminated circular element suspended within an independent rectangular frame that is on the same plane as the dining table. Intended to serve as a wow factor that is evident immediately upon entry to the home, the circular element draws the eye outdoors to a view of the lanai, a lake, and a sculptural circular piece that is the focal point of the outdoor living area and pool. A new unique cabinet to the right of the dining table is presented in a taupe distressed wood finish. The cabinet features a carved dimensional cherry tree branch that flows across three sets of vertical doors. An old cabinet on the dining room’s short wall was removed and replaced by a tall free-standing metal sculpture. The nearby study is devoted to the lady of the house’s love of horses. The room features wood paneling with wainscoting below and a long wall graced by a built-in with shelving. The designers added a beautiful grass cloth finish above the chair rail, a soft easy chair, an intriguing chest, and a custom area rug to bring a fresh new ambiance to the space.

The designers remodeled the kitchen to make it more conducive to casual dining and entertaining. The existing bar-height counter was replaced by a counter-height surface with exotic Taj Mahal quartz that is complemented by comfortable swivel barstools finished in a “crocodile” taupe embossed leather. The island base cabinet was re-done in a medium brown finish to match the existing perimeter cabinetry that plays against a new rectangular glass tile backsplash that runs all the way up to the ceiling. In the adjacent breakfast nook, the designers introduced a glass-topped table with chairs in a neutral fabric accented with small squares on the back in a soft aqua teal. A lighting fixture above the table mimics the unique fixture in the dining room and features a flat dimensional circle with LED lighting. The kitchen and breakfast nook flow into a spacious family room that includes the original sectional sofa that is finished in a taupe-toned leather. The designers added new pillows to the sectional that are presented in off-whites, teals, and coral to complement a new custom area rug. A square cocktail table with a faux travertine top, a side table, and linen draperies with teal and ivory embroideries were also added to create the designers’ new look.

The master bedroom was repainted to bring a considerably lighter look to the space. A new custom bed upholstered in soft velvet is topped by soft taupe and aqua bedding. Art pieces in champagne, taupe, teal, and ivory tones with hints of metallics have been placed on either side of the nightstands that are finished in a soft metallic tone. Opposite the bed, a wall-mounted television is positioned above a long dresser. A small exercise area is graced by a decorative bench with pillows that match the bedding. The designers hung a vertical mirror outside the walk-in closet in the hallway that leads to the master bathroom that now features new, soft-toned wallpaper, new, soft aqua marine granite countertops, a small vanity chair, new lighting, and new plumbing.

The designers worked directly with the landscaper/outdoor living designer to create a spectacular outdoor space that is in keeping with the interiors new, more engaging and entertainment friendly ambiance. The new re-engineered pool cage offers an unobstructed view of the lake that is reminiscent of views found at a waterfront resort hotel. An off-white and soft taupe shell stone deck sets the stage for a remarkable circular pool that has been designed with a series of curves with an 11-foot tall circular sculptural metal ring in the center that not only recalls the lighting fixtures inside the home, but also acts as a shower as people walk through it. A cascading waterfall flows down a glass wall from the black-finished pool to a sun shelf. A bridge over a Koi pond leads to a spa with water line tile presented in a rectangular light teal glass tile. The entire pool and spa presentation is complemented by lush landscaping and a pergola that provide both shade and rich green tones immediately adjacent to the lake. A sectional sofa with two reclining sections and an additional reclining chair are set in the shaded space. The designers revamped the outdoor kitchen area with a large island, muted taupe granite island and grill wall countertops, and bar stools. The covered lanai’s dining area features a taupe-toned woven table and chairs with aqua-toned upholstery. Shear outdoor draperies against the lanai’s circular pillars bring a beautiful note of elegance to the outdoor grilling and fire pit areas. Six swivel chairs have been placed around the long, narrow firepit that features a top finished with muted taupe granite.

In 1979, four years after moving to Florida from New York, Donna Overly, ASID, CAPS, opened Vogue Interiors in Fort Myers. There were less than ten interior design firms in the area and Southwest Florida’s fledgling luxury home industry was just beginning to spread its wings. Donna saw an opportunity and set out to build a firm that would become known as the trendsetter in residential and commercial interior design.

“It was a matter of circumstance,” said Donna. “I was working as a designer for a homebuilder. They wanted to concentrate on home building and not be in the interior design business. That led me to the idea of taking care of their clients’ interior design needs myself. It worked out very well.”

By 1987, Vogue was established as a master at model merchandising for builders and developers and at creating interiors for individual homeowners. Vogue’s Interior Design Studio displayed the latest fabrics, finishes, and colors and cemented the firm’s reputation as a trend setter rather than a trend follower. Donna’s stature within the industry continued to grow. In 1992, she was elected to the Board of Directors of ASID and served through 1995 when she was elected Vice President. In 1996, she invited a designer with Norris Furniture named Debbie DeMaria to ride with her to an ASID event in Miami.

The synergy between Donna and Debbie was immediately apparent. Donna was looking for a way to redirect her energies from running a business to refocusing on her passion for design. Debbie was seeking an opportunity to operate a business of her own. With the backing of her entrepreneur father, Debbie purchased Vogue Interiors from Donna. Donna continued her role as a valued interior designer and worked with Debbie to develop Vogue into one of Southwest Florida’s pre-eminent interior design firms.

In 1998, Vogue Interiors moved into a 7,000-square foot interior design studio and showroom at 24520 Production Circle in Bonita Springs and increased its staff to 15 talented designers and support personnel. Today, forty years after the business was founded by Donna, Vogue is one of the area’s most sought after interior design firms by developers and homebuilders and by private clients.

“Vogue has been here since the beginning as far as interior design in Lee and Collier counties is concerned,” said Debbie. “We’ve been a trend setter when it comes to interior design and architecture. We’re very detail orientated. This organization is really like a big family. Everyone here is deeply focused on what they do, and they enjoy what they do. We work as a team and not individually. We treat our clients like we would want to be treated ourselves. Customer service is of the utmost importance. When you’ve got good communication with your clientele, that makes for a good working relationship and that communication is the basis for the repeat business we continue to generate. We’re all committed to setting the stage for Vogue’s next 40 years.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The sectional sofa and side chairs on the covered lanai are presented with an alluring dark brown open weave rattan finish and feature light sandy brown cushions.

The great room, breakfast nook, and master bedroom open to the outdoor living area.

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

Visitors to the Livia model will be greeted at a double-door entry and step into a foyer with a square coffered ceiling detail trimmed with crown molding and soft cove lighting.

A pendant lighting fixture done in black chrome with a fine chain detail will convey an air of sensual mystery as light peeks through the chain.

The great room will feature a drop-down trey ceiling with cove lighting. The feature wall in this generously sized space will be divided into three sections. The center section will be flanked by bumped-out columns and feature a textured mesh-like metallic reflective wall covering.

The great room will include a dry bar with dark charcoal cabinetry and shelving and an off-white countertop.

A nine-light open-concept chandelier with a carbon black finish and a Havana gold accent band will be suspended over the cocktail tables. The furnishings will be anchored by a light pale grey area rug. Euro pleat sheer gauze drapery panels will flank the great room’s pocketing sliders that open to the outdoor living area.

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

A three-door sideboard will also have a charcoal finish and feature circular pulls and square stainless-steel accents.

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

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

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

The outdoor living area’s linear fireplace will be flanked by bump-outs and a third bump-out will extend from the fire box that will feature a two by two-inch matte finished charcoal surround. The fireplace wall will be finished with floor to ceiling 18 by 18-inch light grey ceramic tile that resembles stone.

Vogue Interiors announced it has been selected to create the interior design for Stock Development’s furnished Marigold model at Isles of Collier Preserve in Naples. The 3,578 square feet under air Marigold floor plan includes a total of 5,510 square feet. The plan features a central gallery hallway and a great room with elaborate ceiling details. The great room opens to the outdoor living area. The plan also includes a formal dining room, an island kitchen and breakfast nook, a study, and a master bedroom that opens to a private covered lanai. There are two walk-in closets, a master bath with dual vanities, a free-standing tub, and a walk-in shower. Three guest bedrooms, one of which opens to a covered lanai, feature private baths. There is also a powder bath. The outdoor living area includes a conversation area with a fireplace, an island bar, a dining area, and an outdoor kitchen, pool and spa. The plan also includes a three-car garage.

Vogue has created a warm and welcoming interior for the Marigold model that will convey effortless modern ease wrapped in elegance. Creamy neutral-toned backgrounds will combine with vibrant blue and organic fabrics, taupe, beige, and Wedgewood blue accents, glamorous champagne silver accented lighting fixtures, and the muted warm undertones of the home’s architectural elements to evoke a sense of relaxed luxury. The flooring throughout the living areas will be 24 by 24-inch light taupe porcelain tile. In the gallery hallway, flooring insets of two by two-inch mosaic polished porcelain tile will mimic the hallway’s series of rectangular back-lit coffered ceiling details.

Visitors to the Marigold will be greeted in a foyer with a dark coco console table with a hammered dark bronze base. A dramatic art piece will be displayed above the console. On the opposite wall, a full-length mirror will feature a mesh frame. Overhead, pendant lighting will introduce Vogue’s use of champagne-silver finished lighting fixtures that will be found throughout the home.

The great room will feature a square coffered ceiling detail and dropped beams painted in a semi-gloss white that will span the width of the space. The feature wall will be covered with a two-toned textured wall covering that will convey a three-dimensional feeling. A mushroom-toned built-in console will be placed against the wall and flanked by two columns, each of which will feature a wall sconce. A television will be mounted above the console and two niches displaying art pieces will be fashioned above the television. Furnishings will include a linen textured taupe-toned sofa with dark walnut legs and ivory and multi-toned blue accent pillows, two Greek key shaped cocktail tables finished in dark walnut and bleached eucalyptus wood accents with glass tops and a walnut finished lower shelf, two square end tables, an off-white setee with taupe-toned seat cushions featuring an embroidered Greek key accent and dark blue, Wedgewood blue, taupe, and cream pillows, and a pair dark blue chenille occasional chairs with a dark walnut stretcher base and metallic gold and blue pillows. The seating area will be anchored by a creamy shag area rug. The pocketing sliders opening to the outdoor living area will be flanked by Euro-pleat sheer drapery panels in a light taupe tone.

The dining room’s dramatic table will be finished in dark walnut with champagne accents and metal legs. The host and hostess arm chairs will also be finished in dark walnut and will include light taupe-toned fabric and metal backs with a high-gloss champagne silver finish. Four side chairs will be included. A four-door buffet with unique circular metallic door fronts will feature a polished steel stretcher base with a dark walnut surround. The wall behind the buffet will be finished with a two-toned cream pebble textured wall covering. The dining room’s ceiling will feature a drop-down coffer with a cross beam accent. Euro-pleat sheer drapery panels will complete the look.

The kitchen cabinetry will be finished in an alabaster tone with white quartz countertops on the perimeter and taupe-toned quartz on the large island. A backsplash fashioned from elongated diamond shaped glass and stone tile will provide a touch of glamour. Pendant lighting fixtures with twig-like stems and luminescent glass globes will be suspended over the island. Low-back counter-height barstools at the island will include blue and cream textured fabric and a dark walnut base. The breakfast nook will feature a dark walnut circular table with champagne metal accents on the feet and five contemporary wingback chairs with nail head detailing. A metal concave chandelier with a champagne finish will be suspended over the table.

The Marigold’s study will feature a three-tiered coffered ceiling detail. A Greek key shaped desk will be finished in off-white and driftwood tones and feature a high-back desk chair finished in driftwood and a neutral fabric. Behind the desk, a three-door live-edge credenza will be presented in a driftwood tone with acrylic legs. An open-armed occasional chair will be upholstered with royal blue velvet fabric and accompanied by a faux shagreen taupe-toned accent table. An off-white area rug with subtle blue geometric patterns will anchor the room.

The master suite vestibule will present floor and ceiling details that match the gallery hallway. The bedroom will showcase a bed with a walnut-toned frame and a vertically channeled neutral fabric wing-back style headboard surrounded by a walnut-toned border. Night stands with bowed fronts, decorative wing-shaped pulls, and a dark walnut finish will flank the bed. The dresser will be presented in a matching style. The sitting area will feature a wing back chair with royal blue linen fabric, nail head detailing, and dark walnut legs. The chair will be accompanied by a square soft gold geometric accent table with a mirrored top. A soft champagne gold lighting fixture with up-lighting will cast a soft glow throughout the space. The master bath will be finished with a taupe-toned metallic wall covering and feature flat front champagne-toned rift-cut vanity cabinetry and taupe quartz counter surfaces. Chrome and backlit faceted glass lighting fixtures will be mounted above the vanities. The back wall in the shower will be finished with decorative polished glass and stone pendant tile that will play against a light taupe porcelain tile floor.

The outdoor living area’s linear ventless fireplace wall will be finished with smooth stucco and accent tiles above the fire box opening. Furnishings in the conversation area will include two sofas, a pair of side chairs, and two ottomans all in a coco basket weave rattan with royal blue linen cushions and accent pillows in white and blue with a white pattern. The conversation area will include a rectangular coffered ceiling with the cross-beam detail. A river rock-shaped cocktail table will have a polished white resin finish. The island in the outdoor kitchen will feature a wood-look smoky ash grey Nature Kast base, an off-white granite countertop with flecks of graphite, and dark coco barstools with aluminum ladder backs. The grill wall will include a diamond-shaped off-white stone backsplash with taupe accents. A coco-toned basket weave rattan dining table will be surrounded by six chairs with soft taupe cushions.

The council is dedicated to developing and promoting skills and professionalism in the sale and marketing of new homes through education, an interchange of ideas, recognition of outstanding achievement and community involvement. This strong united council serves as the catalyst to bind all components of the home building industry.

As luxury homeowners continue to demonstrate their preference for open, functional, and highly livable interior designs, master bedrooms have become a private oasis that offers an ideal place for reading, television viewing, and even enjoying a glass of wine. Current interior design trends reflect the desire for comfortable, retreat-like spaces with sitting areas and access to outdoor living areas.

“Master bedrooms have become a place to get away from what is happening elsewhere in the house,” said Vogue Interiors’ Leslie Gebert, Allied Member, ASID. “The master suite often takes up an entire wing of the home. The bathrooms are large, and so are the bedrooms. The bedroom has become a private space where the owners can eat, sleep, read, watch television, and be comfortable. Walk-in closets with custom built-ins provide storage space and eliminate the need for dressers in the bedroom. That allows the room to be used differently than in the past.”

“We’re using softer, neutral color palettes and carrying the flooring in the living areas into the master bedroom rather than using carpet,” added Vogue’s Sheila Corasaniti-Cook, IDS. “Hardwood flooring or wood-look porcelain tile contribute to the retreat-like feeling. Using clean-lined side panel window treatments as opposed to top panel treatments helps create a sense of volume while drawing the eye to beautiful outdoor views. Low media consoles have replaced dressers and serve as an anchor for wall-mounted televisions.”

Ceiling treatments play a major role in today’s master bedroom designs. Coffered and beamed ceiling details convey a sense of both comfort and luxury. The vertical lines of the side panel window treatments draw the eye up to the ceiling while softening the edges of the windows. To further soften the feeling and improve the acoustics of the room, upholstered beds, area rugs, and the window treatments can be used to absorb sound and mitigate the impact of harder surfaces. The soft neutral color palette and neutral fabric selections are easy on the eye, restful, and relaxing.

“The architectural features in a home today are extremely important, and people are looking at them almost like a piece of art,” said Leslie. “They are a huge part of the look that is Florida design. Nobody wants to see a plain ceiling anymore. If you were to take your hand and cover up the ceiling designs, you would realize that without them you need to emphasize everything else in the room. A beautiful ceiling can be a major element of the design so the other pieces aren’t quite as important. The ceiling can make the room beautiful without a stick of furniture. These homes sometimes have 16-foot ceilings in them. You need to bring them down to the room and balance the space.”

“Creating a comfortable master bedroom retreat does not involve sacrificing luxury,” said Sheila. “The ceiling designs, soft neutral palettes, fabrics, and furniture selections can create an unmistakably luxurious feeling that is comfortable rather than overwhelming and that’s what homeowners want.”
