Athena Model at Sorrento at San Michele
The Athena model at Sorrento in San
Michele by Sterling Communities, designed by The Interiors
Group, is an impressive presentation of traditional elegance
and Old-World opulence.
According to Senior Designer Carmen
Howe, the Athena model provides a great impression of
how lovely the lifestyle could be in this family-niche
Coffered ceilings, elaborate built-ins,
expensive furnishings and accessories, Corinthian columns
and a magnificent curved staircase with wrought-iron railing
complement the dramatic architecture of the home to make
a strong reason for moving.
This magnificent model features a
bold beveled mirror over the stone fireplace in the living
room, a custom kitchen with traditional cream cabinetry,
a family room with Saturnia marble flooring, an elaborate
built-in bookcase and an outstanding master bedroom suite
on the second floor, complete with a separate sitting
area and private balcony.
Another memory point in this model
are the children’s rooms, designed with a nautical
theme for a young son with actual portholes on the border
and a built-in bed resembling a boat. The daughter’s
room – done in pinks, whites and yellows -- is accented
in white picket fencing on the window cornices as well
as a border on the walls.
Warm taupes, rich beiges and an assortment
of creams were chosen for window treatments, furnishings
and wall coverings throughout the home, creating a light
and sophisticated color palette in this engaging model
which is almost unforgettable.
