The Villa d’Este model was an empty canvas when Vogue Interior Design set to work. Now it’s an award-winning home full of special and unique features.
When designers are given a model home as an empty architectural design it’s a lot different than decorating for a homeowner. They are designing a home for an unknown buyer. That’s why most models have neutral colors that appeal to a wide range of people. Tans, beiges, camel or caramel are colors most often seen in a model home. Then it’s up to the designer to add extra touches to take the home from bland to a blast of personality.
That’s what Leslie Gebert, interior designer with Vogue Interior Design, did with the Harbourside Custom Homes’ Villa d’ Este model in Talis Park. Her design was so appealing it didn’t take long for it to sell.
