Vogue Interior Design News

Vogue Interiors announced it has completed the interior design for Stock Development’s furnished Easton model at Fiddler’s Creek. The 2,818 square feet under air Easton residence features an open-concept floor plan with a great room, a large island kitchen, and a dining area. The plan also presents a study, four bedrooms, three and a half baths, a powder bath, and a spacious study. The outdoor living area includes an expansive outdoor kitchen, an attractive pool, and a welcoming spa. The plan also includes a three-car garage.

Vogue’s transitional design conveys a celebration of beauty based on elegant simplicity throughout the Easton model. The color palette features soft grey backgrounds and pure white trim that convey an air of subtle sophistication. Soft grey, taupe, and light dusty aubergine fabrics contribute to the subtle simplicity that defines the Easton’s design. Flooring in the primary living areas is an attractive glazed polished tile. A striking three by three-inch mosaic floor detail mimics the foyer’s rectangular tray ceiling detail. The tray is finished in a luminous metallic wallpaper. A chrome chandelier with glass rod design details illuminates the entry foyer that includes a console in a dark brown finish and a dramatic art piece.

The great room’s feature wall is covered in a dusty aubergine grass cloth that accentuates an attractive two-toned credenza in an off white and dark walnut finish accented in gold. On each side of the feature wall, striking columns have been enhanced with long linear sconces. A dry bar is finished in a rich dark taupe color with a white quartz countertop and a glass tile backsplash done in a soft grey. Two transitional matching sofas are covered in a light taupe linen fabric and adorned with designer pillows done in a light dusty aubergine and silver cream with an embroidered feather detail. The great room also includes a pair of off-white occasional chairs with metallic antique finishes on the legs and dark aubergine pillows that provide a sense of juxtaposition. Centered in the great room, a glass-topped cocktail table is finished in a dark walnut with soft gold accents. Two complimentary end tables feature chrome glass hardware. The sheer drapery panels flanking the pocketing sliders that open the great room to the outdoors are presented in a dusty aubergine tone with an attractive ribbon detail.

An adjacent dining area features a transitional etagere done in a darker wood tone with adjustable shelving. A dramatic rectangular dining table with an acrylic base and a glass top offers seating for six while providing a design highlight. A unique chandelier fashioned from curled metal in an attractive twisted orb shape provides soft ambient lighting. The kitchen features an expansive island and perimeter cabinetry finished in a subtle off-white alabaster tone and taupe colored quartz countertops. Four counter stools done in ivory leather feature a walnut base and nail head detailing. Sleek linear chrome pendants are suspended above the island. The backsplash on the perimeter is fashioned in an ivory toned diamond pattern with taupe accents.

The inviting study showcases an attractive built-in finished in a warm taupe tone. The built-in provides an ample work space that is flanked by drawers on either side. The built-in is paired with a sleek writing desk done in a very dark brown finish with a brushed stainless-steel base. Across from the desk, two occasional chairs are framed in dark brown wood and finished with a smooth off-white fabric. Each chair hosts an accent pillow in a soft aubergine fabric. Between the two chairs, a smoky glass-topped table features a striking metal and acrylic base. A diamond embroidered drapery treatment featuring gauzy sheer compliments a unique dark taupe shag area rug.

A compelling piece of artwork provides a note of welcome in the vestibule of the master suite. The master bedroom is finished with the same soft grey and pure white color pallet found throughout the home. A custom upholstered bed features a vertically channeled headboard that compliments the side rails and footboard that are finished in a light taupe fabric with subtle glimmers of metallic shades. Two interesting nightstands with a concave design are finished in soft silver. The bedroom also includes a credenza done in dark walnut with an embossed textured front design finished in light metallic gold with hints of silver. A comma-shaped occasional chair and matching ottoman feature off-white fabric and bottom details done in contrasting silvery grey bands. Ephemeral draperies with very light silver-toned faux silk fabrics blend easily with the room’s color pallet.

The 24 by 24-inch glazed polished tile flooring found throughout the home flows into the master bath and into the spacious walk-in shower. The shower walls also feature the same tile presented in a 12 by 24 -inch horizontal format with a striking staggered effect. Two by six-inch taupe colored glass tile provides a pleasing accent. Metallic wallpaper graces the master bath’s walls and compliments a dark taupe vanity cabinet that features an ivory-tone quartz counter surface. A 24-inch ottoman finished in a very light dusty aubergine and draperies done in an embroidered ivory sheer complete the look.

The captivating outdoor living area is finished in a combination of white, charcoal, and grey tones. Graphite toned cabinetry and a granite counter surface presented in moon white, charcoals and greys are featured in the outdoor kitchen. The grill wall is finished with hammered metal and charcoal and grey linear glass tile. A dining table with seating for six features an open-weave rattan base and a glass top. The six open-weave rattan armchairs include off-white cushions. The feature wall in the conversation area showcases a television flanked by rectangular block-shaped sconces. A console with a circular design and a lower shelf is finished in a dark coco tone and positioned beneath the television.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Vogue Interiors Principal Debbie DeMaria, ASID, IDS, announced that Jo Carter, the award-winning design firm’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, has been selected to serve as a member of the Florida Homebuilder Association’s (FHBA’s) Sales and Marketing Council (FSMC) Board of Directors. FHBA’s FSMC was founded to help builders sell homes more effectively. The council offers educational opportunities, awards and recognition programs, and sales and marketing tools to its members. 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.

A native Ohioan, Carter has more than 30 years of sales and marketing experience in the construction industry. She was named Vogue Interiors’ Vice President of Sales and Marketing last November and is currently serving as the Chair of the Collier Building Industry Association’s (CBIA) Sales and Marketing Council. Carter has been named recipient of CBIA awards on three occasions, including being named Marketing Director of the Year in 2014, receiving the 2017 Leadership Award for her work as Chair of CBIA’s 2017 Parade of Homes, and receiving the 2018 Outstanding Leadership Award for her sales and marketing expertise.

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.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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