Vogue completes interior for Stock’s Merano model at Lakewood Ranch

Vogue Interiors’ Sheila Corasaniti, IDS and Salvatore Giso, IDS have completed the interior design for Stock Custom Homes’ Merano model residence at Lakewood Ranch. Along with 3,600 square feet under air, the Merano also features 868 square feet of covered lanai space.


The floor plan includes three bedrooms plus a bonus room that can serve as a fourth bedroom, three baths plus a pool bath that also functions as a powder room, a study, a large great room, island kitchen, and dining area, and a three-car garage. The great room opens to a lanai with a year-round kitchen, fireplace, spa, and a pool with a sun shelf. The bonus room is being configured as a second master suite in the model.     

Corasaniti and Giso have infused their design concept with natural elements such as driftwood furniture pieces and white birch branches that make a striking statement in the great room. Their organic off-white and chocolate brown color scheme is simple in color yet striking to the eye. The contrasting colors are juxtaposed throughout the home. Off-white walls and high-gloss off-white 24-by-24-inch porcelain tile flooring provides a foundation for the juxtaposition with accessories and furnishings that reinforce the organic, calm, and restful ambiance.

The Merano’s double-door entry opens to a foyer with a niche wall featuring a substantial console table with an iron base that resembles tree branches holding up a slab of wood. The console establishes the natural feeling of the design. An art piece is set above the console. Another reference to nature is made with a contrasting tile inset in the floor that is set in a herringbone pattern intended to conjure the look and feeling of waves of water running in a stream.

Columns flanking the end of the foyer announce the entry into the great room that features beamed ceiling details with a chocolate brown wall covering material that has a wood-like texture. A built-in on the feature wall includes brown cabinetry topped by a quartz counter with down-lighting and media component storage underneath. The center section of wall above the quartz top is framed out with chocolate brown boxes, a large box to accommodate the television, and three smaller boxes above the television for accessories. Off-white columns define the television space. Soft off-white storage benches are tucked under the built-in top that extends to either side of the television. The wall treatment and white accessories combined with the columns and off-white wall tones provide a dramatic note of contrast to the television space’s deep chocolate brown tone. A larger floor-to-ceiling niche to the right of the television wall and built-in cabinetry host the white birch branches and a third off-white column to the far-right side.

The furnishings in the great room are anchored by a chocolate toned shag rug that contrasts the off-white flooring. Two end tables are accented with chocolate brown against a velveteen, chenille style fabric, including an off-white chenille sofa and a pair of off-white side chairs. A 51-by-51-inch glass-topped cocktail table has a base fashioned with hundreds of individual vertically stacked pieces of driftwood that have been placed to form a solid base. Drum-shaped end tables with smoked-glass tops have a rich dark chocolate finish. The sofa table repeats the iron and driftwood finishes used throughout the home.

The look in the dining area continues the contrasting light and dark tones. The dark dining table includes a beveled edge with a chocolate finish. The table plays against chairs with a linen finish, nail heads, and white linen fabric. A bronze metal light fixture with the look of green bottle glass coins is suspended over the table. Off-white draperies match the draperies flanking the sliders in the great room. A pair of metal art pieces grace the accent wall.

The kitchen island base is a light taupe finish that is topped by off-white granite counter tops with wisps of dark brown, black, and charcoal accent veining. The perimeter cabinets are in a dark chocolate finish. The pendant lighting over the island mimics the lighting fixture in the dining area. A backsplash on the perimeter is finished with off-white marble subway tile.

Corasaniti and Giso introduced an equestrian reference in the study, including a hair on hide rug in cream and brown tones. An elaborate ceiling detail features two suspended squares and beams that run front to back across the ceiling and then continue down the wall where they become part of the room’s shelving system. The dark brown beams contrast a cream-toned chagrin desk and the same off-white that are used throughout the home to soften each space while adding a hint of texture.

The master bedroom’s sitting area includes a dark chocolate brown wood framed chair and accent table and opens to the lanai’s conversation area and fireplace. While continuing the home’s chocolate brown and off-white color scheme, the bedroom showcases a headboard treatment applied to the wall and divided into four large rectangles upholstered in an off-white fabric. Custom bedding with a suede-like horn and buckle accents matches the zig-zag pattern found on the pillows and also features a border that matches the shams. Transitional nightstands with a bow front and a dresser with a bow front in the center section are presented with an espresso finish.

The large format off-white porcelain tile flooring continues in the master bath where the vanity cabinetry is a light taupe tone with dark brown quartz counter tops. The off-white tile continues into the shower that includes a wide vertical dark brown glass tile accent border. Off-white wallpaper features a linear, wavy texture.

A fireplace on the lanai is finished with smooth stucco and river pattern 24-by-24-inch tile in a straight horizontal stack. An area above the fireplace accommodates a television that floats between stucco columns with smooth banding.  A sitting area at the fireplace just outside the master bedroom includes a sofa, two chairs, and a cocktail ottoman anchored by an area rug. A pair of sofas provides a second sitting area outside the great room. The summer kitchen’s cabinetry is finished in a gray driftwood tone and is topped by a granite counter. The dining table seats six. A separate area on the pool deck features a fire pit and chaise lounge chairs.
