Vogue Interior Design News

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 TwinEagles. 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 Herrera, I.D.S. has transformed one of the model’s three guest bedrooms into a unique craft room that is ideally suited to projects undertaken by all members of the family.

“TwinEagles is known for its natural beauty and its classic country club lifestyle,” said Herrera. “The Ponte Vedra Grande is perfectly suited to that lifestyle. The interior of the model is light and airy with classic overtones and straight clean lines. I used light, creamy wood tones with splashes of gold and silver metallics and various white on white on white presentations with subtle colors and a lot of texture. The color palette is very soft and includes light taupe, vanilla and cream mixed with pale blush, aqua and blue tones. Neutral toned porcelain tile with an elegant light marble look is used in the living areas and we used a light taupe tile with a wood look in the study. The overall impression conveys a classic casual elegance that has broad appeal and conveys a fresh Florida feeling. The fabric selections are durable, functional and comfortable.”

Herrera establishes her classic overtones in the foyer where visitors are greeted by a beautiful mirror with an antique silver leaf frame, a whimsical console table and a silver chandelier. The foyer opens to the formal living room where pocketing sliders provide a view of the pool and outdoor living area. A silver and crystal chandelier suspended from the living room’s architectural coffered ceiling conveys another note of classic elegance. Furnishings include a sofa in a soft, light neutral pearlized linen fabric with nail head accents, left and right single-arm chairs with button tufted rhinestones and a pair of lighted gold metallic curio cabinets that will house decorative accessories. The seating is grouped around a multi-colored long shag area rug presented in various shades of taupe and cream.

A combination of gold and silver tones is found in the formal dining room where a light, cream vanilla dining table with soft, elegant lines and graceful legs is surrounded by tone-on-tone side chairs with a geometric pattern and solid host and hostess chairs with a soft, rosy taupe velvet fabric. A cream-toned sideboard is finished with gold pulls. Glass bead wall covering is used to finish the recessed areas of a quad-coffer ceiling.

The quad-coffer ceiling treatment is repeated in the study where the light-toned, wood-like floors play against a vanilla-toned built-in and a desk with gold legs and hardware. The legs of the vanilla finished desk are executed in a large circular pattern that Herrera repeats elsewhere in the home. A desk chair is presented in a light neutral fabric that is contrasted by draperies in a smoky taupe tone with a bit of aqua. The flooring, furnishings and draperies all play against the room’s soft aqua walls.

In keeping with Herrera’s clean lined, classic look, a light cream granite with delicate flecks and river-like movement is used on the kitchen’s island and perimeter counters and as a backsplash. The counter height island base is light taupe and the perimeter cabinetry is ivory with a taupe glaze. Pendant lighting fixtures are set over the island’s counter height bar area. An adjacent breakfast area overlooks the outdoor living area from a butt-glass window finished with a raw linen cornice accented with metallic thread and a rhinestone scroll pattern. A circular glass-topped dining table has a base that repeats Herrera’s circular theme and chairs with a wave type fabric in aqua, taupe and a bit of blush as well as silver nail heads.

Ninety-degree pocketing sliders open the Ponte Vedra Grande’s large family room to the outdoors. Herrera has positioned a vanilla-toned credenza with silver hardware in a niche wall that also hosts a television. Seating is provided by an exquisitely soft, casual velvet sofa and a pair of side chairs in a cream and aqua fabric with a metallic blush colored leather ottoman. The cocktail table and end table have a cream finish with a gold accent and a sofa table has an animal embossed top and once again recalls the large circular theme. A hemp area rug is done in darker taupe and aqua tones that compliment the room’s aqua grey walls and tray ceiling.

Herrera furnished the sitting area in Stock Signature Homes’ hallmark outdoor living area with a sofa, matching chairs, a console table and two swivel chairs that allow a view of the pool and spa that are finished with an earthy-toned glass waterline tile to compliment the neutral taupe deck tone. The fabrics on the furnishings are done in creams, silver greys and taupes to reflect the color palette inside the home. The summer kitchen area includes counter height bar stools and a clean-lined circular metal and wicker table with four chairs. A third covered space off the master bedroom is festooned with inviting palm trees and greenery.

The master suite reflects Herrera’s use of soft colors and elegant finishes. An upholstered tufted bed features a headboard with an antique mirror border presented in a series of half-circles in alternating directions. The border reaches a point at the top where it is crowned with a shell motif. The bed is covered with blush pink and taupe fabric with an oversized print. The walls are also blush pink and provide a background for a vanilla toned dresser and nightstands, all of which have gold hardware and accents. The room is completed with a sunburst gold mirror over the dresser and a kidney shaped metallic silver and gold desk with a fluted design.

The master bath is graced with neutral tile flooring that has a marble look and silver and gold wallpaper with a serpentine pattern. A long tub is centered between his and her vanities with cream-toned cabinetry and light granite countertops. The back wall of the tub is finished with decorative glass and stone tile that is carried into the double entry walk-in shower and mixed with porcelain that matches the floor covering.

As thousands of Baby Boomers continue to approach or reach retirement and make their way to Southwest Florida’s warmer climate, many of them are downsizing and opting for the carefree lifestyle and social atmosphere afforded by upscale adult communities. For individuals and couples who have spent a lifetime creating memories within their home, collecting treasured keepsakes, and developing a special affinity for particular furniture pieces and accessories, downsizing can be difficult. Interior designer Donna Overly, ASID, of Vogue Interiors in Bonita Springs has worked with numerous retirees as they have gone through the process of deciding what to keep, what to part with, and how to best incorporate their must-have items into the design of their new living spaces.

“The downsizing process can be painful if not approached with sensible design solutions,” said Overly. “As a Boomer myself, I have spent a lifetime collecting and understand the need to hold dear some of the special treasures and ‘objects d’art’ that define our lives. A design I recently completed in the Terraces at Bonita Springs was for a woman who had decided to simplify her life by leaving her large condominium behind and moving into a residence with about half the square footage of her previous home. My challenge was to develop a design plan that would not only maximize the functionality and aesthetics of the living space, but also create attractive yet effective display areas for her collectibles and art.”

Overly selected wood flooring for the living/dining room and kitchen and light neutral carpeting for the bedrooms. A complimentary light neutral color palette brought a more expansive look to the space and eased the stress of moving into a smaller living environment. She kept the window treatments simple yet creative and utilized special hardware, trim, and textures. The combination takes full advantage of the available natural light while accentuating the views. Bright accents of candy apple red and lime green provide the “pop” that brings the room to life and work in harmony with the homeowner’s personal art pieces.

Overly used her design expertise to position the living room seating on a free-standing angle. The configuration of the furnishings made the room feel larger and provided an opportunity to utilize the wall space for bookshelves and a credenza that provide storage space special keepsakes as well as display areas for art pieces and other collectibles.
For Overly, another “must have” when downsizing is the closet system. A thoughtfully designed closet system can triple the useable space and storage capacity of any closet, no matter how small. Closet systems can be custom designed to meet specific needs and requirements and accommodate a greater number of keepsakes.

“An experienced interior designer who appreciates the stress associated with downsizing can certainly help guide a homeowner through the process and minimize the stress that is frequently associated with moving into a smaller residence,” said Overly. “Knowing how to use color, textures, furniture selections, and accessories in ways that bring a feeling of roominess to spaces that are actually considerable smaller than the homeowner’s previous residence is critical. Creating opportunities for storage, whether on bookshelves, in furniture pieces, or through the use of custom closet systems will allow the homeowner to keep as many collectibles as possible. That said, as anyone who is downsizing prepares for the process, they will almost certainly need to gift some of their collectibles to their children, grandchildren, or to a charity. Giving items to someone who will appreciate them or benefit from them will make the task of downsizing a bit easier and can leave one feeling good about themselves, too.”

Vogue Interiors announced it has completed the design and execution of the interior of Harbourside Custom Homes’ second Villa d’Este fully-furnished model residence in the Fairgrove neighborhood at Talis Park in North Naples. Vogue’s Debbie DeMaria, ASID, IDS and Leslie Gebert, Allied Member, ASID were named recipients of BIA’s Pinnacle Merit Award in the Best Interior Design – Single Family Home $1,500,000 – $1,999,999 category for their design of Harbourside’s first Villa d’Este model residence at Talis Park. The first model sold the day it opened for viewing in the spring of 2013. The interior of the new Villa d’Este was designed by Gebert and Sheila Herrera, IDS Associate.

Gebert and Herrera have brought a light, airy, sophisticated look to the Villa d’Este’s 3,175 square feet great room floorplan. The plan includes three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a study, a formal dining room, a kitchen with a long, wrap-around island with a raised bar and a massive outdoor living area with a covered lanai, multiple seating areas, an outdoor kitchen, a fireplace, a pool and a spa. The design mixes light, clean-lined woods with a neutral palette of taupe, charcoal and medium gold wall tones accented by soft to vibrant metallic golds, taupes and creams. Sateen and taupe accent pillows in the great room feature a contemporized embroidered flame stitch reminiscent of a 1950’s and ’60’s Hollywood look. Flooring throughout the living areas is 12″ x 24″ rectangular porcelain tile with shades of taupe while the study features wood flooring.

“The slightly different elevation of the new Villa d’Este features a lighter color with darker roofing and fascia than the original model,” said Herrera. “The floorplan allows easy movement throughout the home. It flows beautifully and has a very spacious feeling. From the moment one steps into the foyer, the eye is drawn through the great room’s pocketing sliders to the glittering waters of the pool and to Fairgrove’s signature golf course, water and preserve views. The outdoor living area is an extension of the great room and the two spaces blend together easily and comfortably. We established the design’s light, elegant look with a double-box vibrant metallic gold and warm silver chandelier in the foyer complimented by a mirrored console furniture piece with gold accents.”

The great room features a taupe-finished entertainment center with a television area flanked by a wet bar and shelving for displaying collected items. The flanking sections include granite countertops and antique mirrored backsplashes. Furnishings in the great room includes two accent chairs with soft gold chenille fabric and gold nail head trim, a third accent chair in a more vibrant gold, a two-tiered cocktail table with a cream finished wood top and metal legs, an accent table with a stone top and an open taupe finished base, a rectangular end table in a darker taupe finish, an accent drum table with gold metal legs and a sofa with linen fabric and nail head trim, all of which are grouped around an 8′ x 10′ area rug with swirled browns, golds and greys.

Gebert and Herrera continue their look in the formal dining room with a cream-finished dining table that includes decorative inserts across the top. The host and hostess chairs feature a bright gold velvet fabric with gold nail heads while the side chairs have square backs with a metallic taupe fabric pad in the middle that is fashioned in a circle. The room’s statement piece is a cream credenza set in a niche that has capiz shell insets on the doors. The niche is finished with taupe-colored cork wallpaper with a metallic gold background. A gold, multi-arm chandelier with drum-shaped shades and candelabra bulbs completes the look.

The kitchen’s long raised bar offers a gathering place ideal for entertaining. An inner island features a warm medium-grey base to provide contrast against cream-toned perimeter cabinetry that includes a warm grey glaze. Granite countertops with a very light cream background and swirling taupe and grey accents that provide movement are used throughout the kitchen. The breakfast nook’s 60-inch circular table seats four and overlooks the Villa d’Este’s spacious outdoor living area. The table has a drum base with a gold metallic finish that plays against chairs with taupe, chagrin-type fabric.

A double-door entry opens to a study with wood flooring and a deep, dark taupe built-in with gold background walls. The built-in offers attractive shelf spaces and storage cabinets as well as a computer desk. A floating desk in front of the built-in features the same dark taupe finish and a top with gold details framed in a tone that matches the piece’s legs and front. A cream-toned chair is presented in a revised wing chair look. The room’s two-toned walls include charcoal banding under beautiful crown molding with an accent molding to separate the band from the primary humble gold wall color. A grey linen fabric accent chair and a window treatment with cream side panels and repeating flame-stitched stripes in charcoal, grey and gold bring additional elegance to the space.

The master bedroom’s bed exudes the elegance Gebert and Herrera have brought to the Villa d’Este. The bed is fully upholstered with tufted charcoal velvet that plays against bright metallic gold pillows with metallic cream dots. Shams with wide, bold stripes are set against a neutral bed covering. The dramatic bold stripes on the shams are repeated on the drapes. The room’s tray ceiling is finished with a metallic silver wall covering that compliments grey-toned night stands with mirrored fronts and a chair with a gold fabric that features silver threads and nail head trim.

A tub centered in the room reinforces the master bath’s linear architectural design and provides a focal point. The bath features a double walk-in shower, his and her vanities with a cream finish and granite countertops, and vivid metallic gold accent tiles on the floor, shower and tub deck.

Vogue Interiors announced it has completed the design and execution of the interior of Harbourside Custom Homes’ Villa Adriana fully-furnished model residence at Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club, a residential waterfront resort community located in Miromar Lakes just north of Naples. The interior of the 2,593 under air three-bedroom plus study, three-and-a-half bath home was designed by Vogue’s Sheila Herrera, IDS Associate and Leslie Gebert, Allied Member, ASID.

“Our design motif for this home is one of relaxed elegance in a soft contemporary style,” said Herrera. “The color palette is based on neutral taupes and greys with splashes of black to add drama and contrast, and also tangerine and lime green for some pops of color. The flooring in the main living areas is a very light and neutral 20 x 20 diagonal stone while the hardwood study floor is a dark taupe. We have incorporated a lot of clean lines in the design while maintaining a sense of warm and comfortable elegance throughout. The end result is very dramatic and appealing.”

The elegance begins as soon as you enter through double doors to the foyer and are met by a series of sweeping arches in the gallery hallway. A built-in floating console, custom-designed by Herrera in a dark toned wood, makes an immediate statement. Incorporated and recessed into a wide wall niche, the console acts as an architectural feature to accent the artwork above which is lit by niche lighting. The wall above the niche is accented with trim molding to add dimension to the arches along the hallway. The gallery also serves as a vestibule to a guest suite and to pocketing doors that open to the study.

The gallery opens to a spacious great room that offers views of the outdoor living area, pool, and lake beyond. The great room seating area includes an over-sized sofa in a cream linen tone with accent pillows that reflect the color palette of the house. Herrera and Gebert drew their inspiration from the fabrics that mix taupe and grey with splashes of tangerine, lime green, and a touch of blue. The pillows also add visual interest with their textured, furry and beaded styles. Two upholstered chairs in a soft smoke suede-like fabric provide contrast. Ebony feet on the chairs and sofa introduce a pop of black for added drama, a design element continued throughout the home. The rectangular cocktail table has a neutral leather look with silver nail heads. One of the end tables is mirrored with silver accents and the other has an ebony finish. Across from the seating area, columns create the perfect niche for a dark wood media console. Both the columns and console wall are covered in pewter, metallic-finish mica. The front sections of the console feature intricate circular patterns which are also mirrored and create movement and contrast. Long, frosted tube sconces with metallic banding and geometric shapes enrich the lighting in the room.

A wet bar extends along one wall of the great room into the kitchen to seamlessly integrate the two gathering spaces. The wet bar also features ebony cabinetry, a granite countertop, a chiseled stone backsplash, and an under counter refrigerator. A large, counter height central island in the kitchen has seating for four providing the ideal space for casual entertaining. The island base has been completed in an ebony finish while the perimeter cabinetry is in a contrasting light taupe. Granite countertops are presented in a variety of taupe tones with subtle black veining.

Adjacent to the kitchen and great room is a dining space overlooking the outdoor living area and pool. This space features a circular glass-topped table, and chairs with tall woven backs in a bold taupe and black stripe, and federal blue seats. The decorative light fixture matches the pendant lights suspended over the kitchen island.

Sliders across the rear of the home allow a smooth transition from indoor to outdoor living. A comfortable seating arrangement with four square Sunbrella armchairs and cocktail table is set in front of a large fireplace with a beautifully executed horizontal stone surround. Accent colors of tangerine and blue are highlighted in the chair cushions and striped rug. The outdoor kitchen includes teak cabinetry, a granite countertop, an under counter stainless refrigerator, and a grill. Beyond the covered lanai is a sparkling screened pool and spa with spacious pool deck. A pool bath also functions as the home’s powder bath.

The study features two framed-in panels on one wall using contrasting grey tones to highlight the art within. Two chrome-framed, open étagère bookcases with exotic wood backs are presented on the opposite wall. The desk has a chrome geometric base with a clean-cut, medium wood tone top. The desk chair is finished in brown wood with geometric fabric in taupe and lime green. A warm gold-toned floor rug blends with an accent chair in a light neutral fabric, while long drapes in a beautiful taupe and gold ikat pattern enhance the sophistication of the room.

Herrera and Gebert have continued their soft contemporary theme in the master bedroom where the tones remain neutral with splashes of sophisticated black and gold. The cream-colored, fully upholstered bed with tall tufted headboard perfectly showcases the light bed linens which are sprinkled with distinctive swirling, monogram-style patterns in black. The dresser is finished in dark ebony while the night stands have a combination finish with gold tone doors and unique hardware that creates a jeweled effect. A sitting area has been created in front of the picture window which overlooks the pool and view. Elegant nesting tables are arranged adjacent to a comfortable chair upholstered in a neutral linen fabric. To either side, completing the serenity of the room, are long sheer drapes with a contemporary pattern of large leaves in taupe and black.

The master bathroom features a double sink vanity with granite counters in shades of cream and taupe that blends beautifully with the chocolate-glazed cream cabinetry. A horizontal inlay of mosaic glass tiles decorates the shower walls. The main tile is continued across the tub front and deck while overhead a sheer window treatment in gauzy taupe drapes softly at the bathroom window. Continuing the theme of elegant black accents, this bathroom features wallpaper with a bold black damask pattern against a warm silver background.

Bonita Springs-based Vogue Interiors announced it has completed the interior design of Wyman Stokes Builder, LLC’s Hibiscus model residence at Verandah. Including a spacious, glass-enclosed Florida Room, the great room floor plan offers 3,000 square feet with three bedrooms, three baths, a large study, a double island kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and a nicely sized dining area. The Florida Room space overlooks a large deck and pool and an expansive double water to golf course view.

“The design style for this home and for the overall development is Old Florida,” said Vogue’s Janice Maskell, a State of Florida Licensed Interior Designer. “My design intention was to incorporate clean lines, but to also maintain the integrity of that Old Florida style. The color palette includes soft neutrals with soft aqua and soft blue water color accents, as well as driftwood and greyish toned accents found throughout the home. To keep things crisp and clean, all of the trim is white and the porcelain flooring is set in a brick rectangular pattern. What’s nice is when you walk in and stand in the foyer, the eye is drawn to the captivating long-range view.”

Maskell’s driftwood accents are established in the home’s wide double-foyer where a mirror with a driftwood frame and three circular driftwood elements makes an immediate statement. The driftwood plays against trim details with a semi-gloss white finish that define the foyer spaces. A demilune table in the foyer also has a driftwood feeling. The design’s Old Florida style is further established by the foyer’s double-tray ceiling that is finished with white bead board. A pair of drum chandeliers with white shades and a polished nickel finish provide a hint of bling.

The great room’s coffered ceiling is finished with driftwood toned beams and white bead board, both of which reinforce Maskell’s Old Florida style. The great room seating area includes a pair of nicely sized sofas and two accent chairs with off-white fabric that keeps the ambiance light, airy and inviting. The accent chairs have white rattan frames and white cushions with an aqua circular pattern. Two rectangular glass-top tables with antique brass frames are bunched together to form a cocktail table. A pair of small ottomans provide additional seating. A sofa table is also incorporated in the grouping. The seating area is finished with a textured Sisal area rug that contributes to the Old Florida feeling. A long furniture piece with a driftwood finish and mirrored cabinets that include a scrolled wood detail anchors the television wall. The greyish tones continue in a study off the great room that includes white trim and plantation shutters.

A bar and wine corking area provides a transition between the great room and the kitchen. The space includes a wine chiller, putty toned cabinetry, and a light granite countertop with a soft touch of aqua lines. The upper cabinetry has glass fronts while the lower cabinetry and drawers have bead board inserts. A backsplash is executed in aqua-toned glass tile set in a subway pattern.

The same backsplash is found on the cooktop wall of the kitchen that features a long counter area and a pair of tall, clean-lined Shaker style cabinetry sections with polished nickel pulls. The kitchen’s inner and outer islands and perimeter work areas are finished with the same light granite used in the bar area. The double-island configuration is conducive to entertaining and family gatherings while ensuring there is plenty of work space for food preparation. A raised bar at the outer island includes bar stools with glossy white frames and medium-blue ultra-suede seats. The front of the raised bar area and the drawers and ends of the inner island are finished with bead board. The kitchen includes a Frigidaire Professional grade appliance package.

A trestle table in the dining area has a medium-toned, aged brown finish that conveys an antique, distressed. Rattan host and hostess chairs are presented in a putty finish and include backs with a circular motif that recalls Maskell’s use of circular elements throughout the home. Four side chairs are done in a natural woven material. The buffet includes drawer fronts with rattan inserts and is finished in white to provide a sense of connection with the side chairs in the great room.

A spacious glass enclosed lanai provides a true Florida Room that can serve as either a fully indoor or fully outdoor space. The room’s zoned air conditioning can be used as needed. The flooring found in the home’s great room is carried into the Florida Room making it a finished extension of the main living area when the space is closed to the outdoors. Maskell has created engaging spaces within the Florida Room. At one end of the room, a rectangular fireplace includes a split-faced stone surround, an impressive mantle, and a television framed by columns. The columns and walls in the Florida Room are finished in a putty tone. A comfortable seating area in front of the fireplace and television includes a Sunbrella sectional sofa and two functioning recliners. An ottoman, circular cocktail table, and an outdoor area rug complete the grouping. Adjacent to the fireplace seating area is a high-top circular table and a pair of tall barstools finished with the same ultra-suede fabric found at the kitchen bar. This high-top table provides a transitional space between the fireplace seating and an outdoor dining area that features a square dining table with seating for eight. All of the furnishings are Sunbrella in a brown-toned finish. Beamed ceiling details and bead board inserts provide architectural interest and unite the Florida Room with the great room.

When opened to the outdoors, the Florida Room flows easily into the outdoor living area that includes a pavered deck, pool, and a grill area with a granite countertop. A 360-degree, negative edge spa is finished with porcelain tile surround in varying shades of slate. The area includes a screen enclosure and overlooks a seemingly endless view.

Maskell has continued her use of driftwood tones in the master suite where faux driftwood porcelain tile is sued in the vestibule, master bath, and closets, Greyish blue crown molding plays against the master bedroom’s putty-toned walls. The fully upholstered bed includes polished nickel nail head trim. Night stands with antiqued pewter frames and antiqued mirrored fronts add a touch of glamor. A medium wood toned chest of drawers has a convex front that provides visual interest. A variety of pieces are used to create a soft silver circular mirror that is clean and simple.

The master bath has a clean, contemporary look that includes taupe with off-white rectangular sinks over medium brown toned cabinetry and polished nickel fixtures. Each of the sinks has a tall mirror with a capiz shell frame. The shower walls include horizontal porcelain tile inlays to match the flooring as well as glass tile chicklet listellos in browns and putty tones also set in a horizontal pattern. Both the square rain head and hand-held shower fixtures are polished nickel.

Gebert and Herrera will continue their look in the formal dining room with a cream-finished dining table that includes decorative inserts across the top. The host and hostess chairs will feature a bright gold velvet fabric with gold nail heads while the side chairs will have square backs with a metallic taupe fabric pad in the middle that will be fashioned in a circle. The room’s statement piece will be a cream credenza set in a niche that will have capiz shell insets on the doors. The niche will be finished with taupe-colored cork wallpaper with a metallic gold background. A gold, multi-arm chandelier with drum-shaped shades and candelabra bulbs will complete the look.

The kitchen’s long raised bar will offer a gathering place ideal for entertaining. An inner island will feature a warm medium-grey base to provide contrast against cream-toned perimeter cabinetry that will include a warm grey glaze. Granite countertops with a very light cream background and swirling taupe and grey accents that provide movement will be used throughout the kitchen. The breakfast nook’s 60-inch circular table will seat four and overlook the Villa d’Este’s spacious outdoor living area. The table has a drum base with a gold metallic finish that will play against chairs with taupe, chagrin-type fabric.

A double-door entry will open to a study with wood flooring and a deep, dark taupe built-in with gold background walls. The built-in will offer attractive shelf spaces and storage cabinets as well as a computer desk. A floating desk in front of the built-in will feature the same dark taupe finish and a top with gold details framed in a tone that matches the piece’s legs and front.

A grey linen fabric accent chair and a window treatment with cream side panels and repeating flame-stitched stripes in charcoal, grey and gold will bring additional elegance to the space.

The master bedroom’s bed will exude the elegance Gebert and Herrera are bringing to the Villa d’Este. The bed will be fully upholstered with tufted charcoal velvet that will play against bright metallic gold pillows with metallic cream dots. Shams with wide, bold stripes will be set against a neutral bed covering. The dramatic bold stripes on the shams will be repeated on the drapes. The room’s tray ceiling will be finished with a metallic silver wall covering that will compliment grey-toned night stands with mirrored fronts and a chair with a gold fabric that features silver threads and nail head trim.

While purchasing a resale home offers buyers price certainty, immediate availability and the security of knowing they will be living in the neighborhood they prefer, the interior design tastes of the previous owner or outdated features and finishes may not be exactly what the buyer has in mind. Those gifted with a sense of vision and a modicum of creativity are usually able to look past a resale home’s cosmetic deficiencies and realize that simply refreshing the space can make all the difference.

Refreshing does not entail stripping a home to the studs and starting over with a total remodeling project. It can be as basic as changing a color palette, introducing new furnishings and artwork, filling niches with custom built-ins, adding area rugs, or simply changing the pulls on the kitchen cabinets. The trick to feeling at home by refreshing rather than remodeling is to ensure the redesigned elements blend seamlessly with whatever existing features and finishes are deemed acceptable for the new look.

“Buyers of a resale home are buying an existing home, but it’s a brand new home to them,” said Vogue Interiors’ Sherri Bradford, ASID Allied Member. “They want the home to reflect their tastes while ensuring the things about the space that attracted them to begin with are preserved. They may envision rooms within the home being redesigned to suit their specific needs. They may want elements in the living areas updated to reflect a more clean-lined, current look that reflects their personal style. The bathrooms may need a look that better reflects up-to-date finishes. All of this can be accomplished by refreshing the home rather than undertaking a total remodeling. My advice is to find that resale home that has great ‘bones,’ the types of spaces that work with your lifestyle, and the location you want and then work with a designer who understands what it will take for you to feel at home in your new older residence.”

Bradford recently completed a refreshing project for a couple who purchased a home in Shadow Wood at the Brooks. The residence is their second home and serves as a retreat in which they can enjoy Southwest Florida while continuing their professional endeavors. The home is a 2,500 square feet great room floorplan with a formal dining room, three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a study and an extensive outdoor living area – all of which suits the couple’s needs. What did not work for them was the home’s existing design style that reflected a more traditional look. They wanted something more clean-lined that conveyed the casual elegance associated with the more current “Florida Transitional” design style.

“The new owner wanted something with clean lines and pops of color that conveyed a sense of fun,” said Bradford. “The new color palette is very neutral. We introduced color with the artwork, the accent pillows and the draperies and mixed dark woods against the existing flooring and neutral backgrounds. We also selected new furnishings. The finished look is very comfortable and exudes classiness at the same time.”

For the home’s foyer, Bradford selected a three-piece, medium-toned transitional chest with vertical stripe inlays. The chest plays against an area rug that introduces color. In the great room, Bradford brought a sense of elegance to the feature wall that includes three arched niches by redesigning an existing built-in. Door fronts were added to the unit’s lower shelves and all of the sound system’s speakers and wiring were hidden. Artwork was added above the television in the center niche. Bradford also introduced a custom bar cabinet to the great room. The piece is dark toned tiger wood with wood inlays on the diagonal. The cabinet includes a pullout serving tray, stacked wine racks, a liquor drawer and upper glass shelving for glassware. The dark tones of the cabinet play against the great room’s caramel leather sofas, honey-colored side chairs, and a decorative rug that features bright terra cotta, red, blue and gold tones.

In the formal dining room, the space for the dining table and chairs is defined by a dark, checker board inlay set in the room’s honey-colored hardwood floor. The glass-topped rectangular dining table seats six in clean lined chairs that are wide and comfortable. Rusty-red draperies with a gold floral pattern add a pop of color. A ceiling detail that includes nine coffers with crown molding the same dark tone as the floor inlay contributes to the elegant look of the space and works well with a dark toned credenza that functions as a server and features gold-burnished silver leaf panel insets on the doors and gold tassels on the door handles.

Bradford simply rebuilt sections of the kitchen’s existing golden maple cabinetry to provide additional storage space. The existing island that features an Uba Tuba granite countertop, and the perimeter’s Giallo Light granite countertop and stone backsplash, provide an attractive workspace. A breakfast area with a circular glass-topped table and four rattan chairs with tweed seats overlooks the outdoor living area where Bradford redid the backsplash and countertop at the outdoor kitchen, added wiring for a television and updated the sink fixtures.

At the beginning of the project, the home’s study was empty. To provide a functional workspace for a salesman who travels extensively and for the lady of the house who has her own endeavors to manage, Bradford designed a cherry-finished built-in L-shaped desk with upper cabinetry and a second built-in desk and cabinetry that extends the entire length of one of the room’s walls. Corkboard covered with textured fabric on the walls above each desk provides space for hanging printed pieces of business related information. The wall-length desk includes file-ready storage drawers, a pull-out keyboard shelf, cabinet space and a storage unit at one end. The his and her workspaces now offer an ideal working environment.

In the master bedroom, Bradford heeded the owners’ love of their dog by fashioning the furnishings in a way that would create a ramp to the bed for the couples’ cherished pet. The bed has a tufted leather upholstered headboard flanked by rectangular nightstands with glass inset tops, an upper shelf, a drawer and a lower shelf. A bench at the foot of the bed provides the ramp and is finished with stripes in greens, terra cottas and tans. Matching clean lined side chairs provide comfortable seating for television viewing. A dark 12-drawer chest with silver tinted gold handles completes the look.

Vogue Interiors’ 30-year tradition of award-winning design excellence continued in October with the receipt of four Collier Building Industry Association (CBIA) Sand Dollar Awards and seven awards presented by the Lee Building Industry Association (BIA). Vogue was acknowledged for its work in numerous categories ranging from its residential interior designs to its commercial designs and marketing materials.

Vogue’s Debbie DeMaria, ASID, I.D.S. and Leslie Gebert, Allied Member, ASID were named recipients of the Best Interior Design – Single Family Home in both the CBIA’s Sand Dollar $2,500,000 – $2,999,999 category and the BIA’s Pinnacle Award $2,700,000 – $3,499,999 category for their design of a private residence in Quail West that encompasses a total of 7,863 square feet.

DeMaria and Gebert used a palette of reds, golds, creams, bronzes and rust colors softened by melon tones against a neutral pale cream background. Lightly textured Travertine marble flooring in the living areas matches the neutral background. Their design transformed a space already well under construction into a home that satisfied both the man of the house’s relaxed, casual lifestyle and the lady of the house’s more formal, sophisticated approach to entertaining on a corporate executive level.

DeMaria and Gebert were also named recipients of BIA’s Pinnacle Merit Award in the Best Interior Design – Single Family Home $1,500,000 – $1,999,999 category for their design of Harbourside Custom Home’s Villa d’Este fully-furnished model residence at Talis Park in North Naples. The low-key, California casual design style conveys a classic yet low key feeling that is comfortable, elegant and perfectly suited to the New Fashioned Talis Park lifestyle. DeMaria and Gebert’s light, soothing colors in the Villa d’Este have a hint of drama. The palette is reflected in a mix of natural elements, including stone finishes, light granites, mica and slate wall coverings, light woods and a hemp area rug in the great room. Fabric selections include textured linen, grey mohair and silk accents. Porcelain tile flooring in a variety of natural shades is used in the living areas, while medium-brown hardwood is presented in the study;

Vogue Interiors announced it has been selected to design and execute the interior of Harbourside Custom Homes’ Villa Adreana fully-furnished model residence at Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club, a residential waterfront resort community located in Miromar Lakes just north of Naples. The interior of the 2,593 under air three-bedroom plus study, three-and-a-half bath home is being designed by Vogue’s Sheila Herrera, I.D.S. and Leslie Gebert, ASID. Completion of the Villa Adreana is anticipated in January, 2014.

Design Style and Intention

We went with clean lines which seems to be the hot trend. We went with darker woods so we went with the espresso kind of finishes but we also did a lot of greys; pops of greys. Now that’s the color palette and what is your intention with the design? A very clean fresh look with pops of colors. We did a little touch of glam because we’ve got our sparkle. It’s a relaxed elegance because we have this granite type wall covering in the living room but yet it’s a very comfortable elegance with the seating and everything. I would call it a soft contemporary. The color palette is taupes and neutrals with splashes of black and then we have tangerines and lime greens. The flooring throughout the home is 20 by 20 diagonal stone which is a travertine kind of color; very light and neutral and that goes throughout the living areas. The study is a hardwood floor which is a medium tone; it’s like a really dark taupe color.

Entryway/Foyer

So you come through the double door entry and you’re into a long gallery hallway that has three arches to it and at the end of the hallway you’re looking out through the great room and all the way out to the outdoor living area. And as you go down this gallery hallway there’s an entry to a small vestibule and an entry to bedroom number three and bath number three and then there is also a pocketing door to the study. So in this long gallery hallway with the three arches and the bedroom three vestibule and the pocketing doors going into the study on the left side.

This is a build-out that we did; it’s actually a floating console. I designed this architectural feature to accent the art that will go on that wall that’s lit and it has the wainscoting on it to give it a nice architectural detail. This is a console…it’s not very deep. It’s made out of wood but it’s built in. So there’s a built in console that is built with a top; you’re creating kind of a niche wall here with this arch here. So you have this built in console and above that will be an art piece and above that will be wainscoting that will be done in a design that kind of plays with the arch at the top of the niche which follows with the other arches down the hallway. And then there are two matching consoles in the foyer.

The Study

We’re doing framed-in panels on the wall on one side and I’m sure we’ll do some sort of art in them. The other side of the room has a wall where the bookcase is a darker tone with a chrome framework. They are chrome framed open etagere bookcases with an exotic wood back. The desk is a medium wood tone with a chrome geometric base. The chair is finished in a brown wood with a geometric fabric in taupe and lime green. The accent chair is in like a chegreen type fabric that is very neutral and the drape has a beautiful ikat fabric pattern in taupe and gold.

Kitchen/Dining Area

This is a great room plan and it doesn’t appear to have a formal dining room. It’s a nicely sized great room that flows into a kitchen with a very large counter height island. The island has bar stool seating for four and it has a black island base. So the island base is in an ebony finish and the perimeter cabinetry is in a very light taupe. The countertop is granite with a combination of light taupes with some specs and some movement with a little touch of black veining. And that is for both the perimeter and the island. I hesitate on the island because I don’t recall if it is bar height or counter height. As I look at it it looks to me like the barstools should be over here and it should be a counter height. I can’t imagine that the sink is at a bar height. So we’re going to call this a counter height island. There is a wet bar with a wet bar sink and an under counter refrigerator. What kind of countertop is going there? That is also the black that matches the island base and there’s a chiseled stone backsplash and the countertop is the same as the kitchen. Off of the kitchen is the dining area which seats five which is an odd number. It’s a circular table. A lot of times we do five because in a situation like that it’s better than four but there isn’t enough room for six so it gives you that extra seat. Alright so we have a 60 inch dining room table and pocketing sliders that open up to the outdoor living area.

Outdoor Living

The outdoor living area has a fireplace and a kitchen with a sink, a grill, an under counter refrigerator. There’s a pool bath that also functions as the home’s powder bath.

Great Room

In the great room we have a very nice over sized deep sofa that is in the linen type cream tones with black legs to repeat the black and then it also has accent pillows that are basically the color palette of the house; which are the lime greens, the taupes, the greys, and the pop of the orange/tangerine, and a little touch of the blues. The pillows really set the stage for the house. That was our inspiration fabric. We also have some very textured, furry, and beaded kind of pillows that are on the sofa. The cocktail table is a rectangular leather looking table with silver nail heads and one of the end tables is mirrored with silver accents and then we have one that’s in the ebony finish. It’s a round end table. And then we have one that has circular moldings and it’s mirrored and it has this same dark ebony kind of finish on that piece. Where is this going and we call that a console piece? It’s a media console piece That the television will go over and then we have two columns that have this mica that I was telling you about. And the columns create a niche for that console. The columns are wrapped in that striped mika that runs horizontal and in the center is the mika that coordinates with it; you drop the stripe and it’s a solid and they are both in kind of a pewter metallic finish. Tell me again about the front of this media console. It is moldings cut into a circular pattern that creates a lot of movement and it is mirrored. So it has the combination of the dark wood with mirroring. Ok, the front is divided into four sections and the pattern of the cut is mimicked in each of the four. The two chairs are upholstered and they are in a very soft smoked colored suede like fabric with ebony feet so again that pop of the black. We went with black throughout the house to create drama.

Master Suite

The door opens up and we turn right through an arched opening into the master bedroom that is off of the outdoor living area.

Master Bedroom

We have an upholstered tufted headboard; actually it’s a completely upholstered bed with the side rails, foot rails, and everything. It’s in a very light cream fabric and then the bed has a combination of stripes with kind of a geometric swirl type monogram type pattern. It has long, fur type pillows and the drape is sheer with great big leaves that are kind of contemporary leaves that have taupe and black; again that pop of the black and then we have a lot of gold accents as well. The furniture itself is in a very dark ebony finish and the night stands have kind of a combination finish with a piece of hardware that kind of creates a jeweled effect on the piece. And it looks like you have a little sitting area. Yes, there are nesting tables that have a geometric pattern on top that are cream with black legs. The chair is kind of a linen fabric and it’s neutral.

Master Bath

It is not his and her vanities it looks like we have a double sink vanity. The master bath has a beautiful enlarged damask wallpaper and the damask pattern is in black with the background in a warm silver. The cabinet is in a cream with a chocolate glaze. The tub has a tub deck. There is a window in there and we have a taupe sheer window treatment. It’s a very soft taupe sheer window treatment and it kind of has a metallic. Where are those glass tiles going? In the shower and I am sure there are accents on the tub and in the shower. So there are glass tile accents in the tub deck and in the shower.

Closing

What is your overall take on this particular residence? It is going to be very dramatic. It is going to be very, very dramatic because of the pops of the black and the contrasts of the really light finishes against it. It will be appealing to a lot of people and again to me it is a casual elegance. What part of Miromar are we in and what are we looking out to? I have not seen the lot yet so I don’t know.

Stock Signature Homes’ 3,525 square feet under air Ponte Vedra Grande model residence in TwinEagles. 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. has transformed one of the model’s three guest bedrooms into a unique craft room that is ideally suited to projects undertaken by all members of the family.

“TwinEagles is known for its natural beauty and its classic country club lifestyle,” said Herrera. “The Ponte Vedra Grande is perfectly suited to that lifestyle. The interior of the model will be light and airy with classic overtones and straight clean lines. I’ll be using light, creamy wood tones with splashes of gold and silver metallics and various white on white on white presentations with subtle colors and a lot of texture. The color palette is very soft and includes light taupe, vanilla and cream mixed with pale blush, aqua and blue tones. Neutral toned porcelain tile with an elegant light marble look is used in the living areas and we’re using a light taupe tile with a wood look in the study. The overall impression will convey a classic casual elegance that will have broad appeal and convey a fresh Florida feeling. The fabric selections are durable, functional and comfortable.”

Herrera establishes her classic overtones in the foyer where visitors will be greeted by a beautiful mirror with an antique silver leaf frame, a whimsical console table and a silver chandelier. The foyer opens to the formal living room where pocketing sliders provide a view of the pool and outdoor living area. A silver and crystal chandelier suspended from the living room’s architectural coffered ceiling conveys another note of classic elegance. Furnishings include a sofa in a soft, light neutral pearlized linen fabric with nail head accents, left and right single-arm chairs with button tufted rhinestones and a pair of lighted gold metallic curio cabinets that will house decorative accessories. The seating is grouped around a multi-colored long shag area rug presented in various shades of taupe and cream.

A combination of gold and silver tones is found in the formal dining room where a light, cream vanilla dining table with soft, elegant lines and graceful legs is surrounded by tone-on-tone side chairs with a geometric pattern and solid host and hostess chairs with a soft, rosy taupe velvet fabric. A cream-toned sideboard is finished with gold pulls. Glass bead wall covering is used to finish the recessed areas of a quad-coffer ceiling.

The quad-coffer ceiling treatment is repeated in the study where the light-toned, wood-like floors play against a vanilla-toned built-in and a desk with gold legs and hardware. The legs of the vanilla finished desk are executed in a large circular pattern that Herrera repeats elsewhere in the home. A desk chair is presented in a light neutral fabric that is contrasted by draperies in a smoky taupe tone with a bit of aqua. The flooring, furnishings and draperies all play against the room’s soft aqua walls.

In keeping with Herrera’s clean lined, classic look, a light cream granite with delicate flecks and river-like movement is used on the kitchen’s island and perimeter counters and as a backsplash. The counter height island base is light taupe and the perimeter cabinetry is ivory with a taupe glaze. Pendant lighting fixtures are set over the island’s counter height bar area. An adjacent breakfast area overlooks the outdoor living area from a butt-glass window finished with a raw linen cornice accented with metallic thread and a rhinestone scroll pattern. A circular glass-topped dining table has a base that repeats Herrera’s circular theme and chairs with a wave type fabric in aqua, taupe and a bit of blush as well as silver nail heads.

Ninety-degree pocketing sliders open the Ponte Vedra Grande’s large family room to the outdoors. Herrera has positioned a vanilla-toned credenza with silver hardware in a niche wall that also hosts a television. Seating is provided by an exquisitely soft, casual velvet sofa and a pair of side chairs in a cream and aqua fabric with a metallic blush colored leather ottoman. The cocktail table and end table have a cream finish with a gold accent and a sofa table has an animal embossed top and once again recalls the large circular theme. A hemp area rug is done in darker taupe and aqua tones that compliment the room’s aqua grey walls and tray ceiling.

Herrera is furnishing the sitting area in Stock Signature Homes’ hallmark outdoor living area with a sofa, matching chairs, a console table and two swivel chairs that allow a view of the pool and spa that are finished with an earthy-toned glass waterline tile to compliment the neutral taupe deck tone. The fabrics on the furnishings are done in creams, silver greys and taupes to reflect the color palette inside the home. The summer kitchen area includes counter height bar stools and a clean-lined circular metal and wicker table with four chairs. A third covered space off the master bedroom is festooned with inviting palm trees and greenery.

The master suite reflects Herrera’s use of soft colors and elegant finishes. An upholstered tufted bed features a headboard with an antique mirror border presented in a series of half-circles in alternating directions. The border reaches a point at the top where it is crowned with a shell motif. The bed is covered with blush pink and taupe fabric with an oversized print. The walls are also blush pink and provide a background for a vanilla toned dresser and nightstands, all of which have gold hardware and accents. The room is completed with a sunburst gold mirror over the dresser and a kidney shaped metallic silver and gold desk with a fluted design.

The master bath is graced with neutral tile flooring that has a marble look and silver and gold wallpaper with a serpentine pattern. A long tub is centered between his and her vanities with cream-toned cabinetry and light granite countertops. The back wall of the tub is finished with decorative glass and stone tile that is carried into the double entry walk-in shower and mixed with porcelain that matches the floor covering.
