Vogue Interiors announced award-winning designers Leslie Gebert, Allied Member, ASID and Sheila Corasaniti, IDS have completed the design and execution of the interior of Harbourside Custom Homes’ San Michele II model residence at Miromar Lakes. The open, 3,693 square feet floor plan includes a spacious great room, a formal dining room, a large island kitchen and breakfast nook, four bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, a study, a flex room designed as the model’s lady’s study, an outdoor living area with a covered lanai, fireplace, outdoor kitchen, and pool, and a two-car garage and a one-car garage.
Gebert and Corasaniti’s sophisticated transitional design for the San Michele II model features a neutral background palette of soft light taupe punctuated with the bold use of ivory, black and metallic gold accents. Light toned hardwood floors run throughout the home to create a neutral and quiet stage for the home’s dramatic design elements.
Double entry doors open to a sweeping view running straight through a long gallery hallway and the great room to the outdoors and pool area. The foyer’s ceiling features three large rectangular trays with transitional hanging light fixtures. Soft taupe walls showcase a contemporary wood and stone console table with a deep, dark espresso finish and a honed travertine top in a medium tone. A large vibrant abstract painting executed in varying shades of creamy ivory, inky black and gold leaf hangs above the console. In the niche on the opposite wall, a dramatic 92-inch high contemporary sculpture offers a preview of the sophisticated interior of the San Michele II.
To the right of the entry, a large front-facing room is designed as a lady’s study where the wall details include tall vertical rectangular panels outlined by 1-inch by 4-inch flat molding painted the same soft taupe tone as the walls. A plush curved white sofa sits in front of the window and is accented with four dove gray pleated fabric pillows. Side tables in a brushed pewter finish flank the sofa across from an espresso lady’s desk with a brushed nickel base. In the corner, a comfortable curved back chair is upholstered in a subtle linen. On the light wood floor, an ivory and dove grey chevron patterned hide rug softens the room. Draperies on the front window are fashioned in an oversized damask pattern.
Custom columns define the feature wall in the formal dining room where textured wallpaper covers the center of the wall behind a stunning 90-inch circular starburst mirror in a bronze and black metallic finish. Six comfortable neutral upholstered dining chairs feature a chrome nail head design and surround a glass-topped dining table with a dark wood and stone base.
With an entry from the dining room, the granite-topped wet bar opens to the grand gallery and features lighted glass-front wall cabinets finished in a charcoal black. A stunning backsplash of 3-inch by 8-inch decorative tile runs behind the cabinets all the way to the ceiling. Composed of geometric shapes in tones of warm brown, midnight black and ivory, the backsplash creates an interesting masculine mood against the black cabinets. Counter height barstools with polished nickel bases are upholstered in a crocodile-textured ivory leather.
In the welcoming great room, an elaborate ceiling detail emphasizes the volume of the generous space. On the main entertainment wall, 24-inch wide panels of 4-inch by 4-inch gloss black ceramic tile are trimmed out in applied molding and run all the way up the wall. The tile panels flank the television wall which is finished in an intricately pleated neutral wallpaper. Custom built-out columns feature long modern metallic sconces beside a black media console in the center. Facing the media wall, a neutral linen sofa holds an assortment of accent pillows including black, ivory and gold color-blocked cowhide. Against the sliding doors to the lanai, two ivory leather club chairs are detailed with a chrome nail head design. Opposite the easy chairs, a long black bench showcases an ivory textured cushion. Four small black bunching tables with open sides and gold trim take the place of a traditional cocktail table. A luxurious shag area rug with a creamy ivory pile and subtle gold threads brings additional texture to the seating arrangement. At the windows, neutral linen draperies have a 30-inch band of ivory, black and gold heavily embroidered fabric at the bottom.
The open kitchen island cabinets are finished in rich black and topped with a lively black and white granite countertop. To provide contrast, the perimeter cabinetry is finished in an off-white neutral tone with brushed nickel pulls and a granite counter matching the island. The granite continues up the wall as the backsplash. Ivory leather counter stools matching those at the wet bar are used at the kitchen island.
The hardwood flooring continues into the den at the rear of the home, where driftwood finished built-ins flank a contemporary partners’ desk. Driftwood floating shelves hang above the desk on a wall finished with a textured grey cork wall covering. A contemporary office chair is finished in ivory leather. Two black wood-framed chairs with dove grey modern fabric sit beside a lamp table finished with gold metal legs and a reflective black top. Horizontally striped draperies feature a combination of gray, ivory, and black stripes alternated with stripes of sheer linen.
With a bold color palette of black, white and gold, Gebert and Corasaniti’s master bedroom design inspiration is sourced in a French fabric. The ivory silk fabric has random splatter patterns of black and gold and is used on the Euro pillows and as a throw at the foot of the bed. A curved headboard is upholstered in ivory velvet and the bedding includes an ivory velvet coverlet and black and gold embroidered pillows. Gold drapery hardware supports ivory sateen panels inset with bands of black fabric.
In keeping with current color trends, all of the hardware in the master bath is finished in a brushed gold. The vanity cabinetry presents a soft off-white finish against pale granite countertops. Soft ivory tile flooring extends into the shower and is accented by a neutral glass tile.
Three black woven wicker outdoor loveseats with ivory cushions are grouped in front of the lanai’s fireplace and media wall where horizontally stacked 18-inch by 36-inch taupe tile offers a contemporary look. The rectangular dining table has an ivory base and a granite tile top in tones of ivory and warm brown. Six black woven wicker dining chairs are finished with ivory upholstered seats. Charcoal cabinetry fills the grill wall above an ivory and black granite countertop. Nearby, a black bistro table and four matching swivel barstools serves as a bar. By the pool, four black loungers with ivory fabric contrast gold metallic Chinese garden stools set between them.
