Fort Myers – Theory Design and its growing team of talented professionals bring the Bal Harbor model to life at Hill Tide Estates, a luxury gated oceanfront community in Boca Grande by Seagate Development Group.
Vice President of Design Ruta Menaghlazi and Senior Interior Designer Paula Myette conceptualized the three-story residence based on the rich flavor of the scenic location and the rich history of tarpon fishing as well. than deep water island adventures. They worked with Seagate, architect RG Designs and other key partners to create over 5,100 square feet of living space with a unique coastal design variation with tropical retreat landscaping. Interiors embrace a holistic approach that emphasizes living and entertaining inside and out.
The Bal Harbor blends a coastal look and experience, rustic yet modern from the get-go, with exterior features like a gray metal roof, white brackets and windows, and black shutters for a classic contrast. The connection with the outside is further strengthened when you walk through the door. The color scheme is neutral with accents of navy blues and natural green hues. This includes crisp navy blue cabinets in the kitchen and bar area as well as in the utility room. The denim blue carpet, plush cushions and sea-hued artwork bring this color palette to life. These, along with accessories from surrounding natural elements, are complemented by casual upholstered furniture. These carefully selected finishes give the house timeless touches that celebrate the abundance of natural light.
A massive chandelier in the three-story entrance to the Bal Harbor is the first of many subtle statement pieces that greet guests and then reward them with the impact of jaw-dropping views. The open staircase gives the illusion of floating in the air, especially when enhanced by an expanse of sunny windows to the front and back of the house.
The living spaces are mixed with contrasting elements, such as ebony cabinetry for contrast, and complemented by softer tones, such as blue, gray, and linen. The finishes and color scheme create a streamlined flow of the Bal Harbor model. This home has an open plan for entertaining and has a well-equipped kitchen, great room and wet bar with pocket sliding doors that expand the living space to the outdoors.
Airy sheer draperies, abstract art centered on the coast, comfortable and casual white linen furnishings, and beach-inspired accessories and accents make the home a luxurious and cozy retreat for everyone.
“The Bal Harbor can be defined as accessible luxury. Anyone can connect with this design and easily add to a space like this to make it their own. As you walk through the door and explore each space, you’ll say, “I want to live here,” said Chris Hensley, vice president of Theory Design.
The Bal Harbor model has four bedrooms plus an office, four and a half baths, and a three-car garage.
Theory Design also creates the interiors of Seagate’s Beacon, Cape Romano and Sunny Isles furnished model homes at Hill Tide Estates – some of the latest homeownership opportunities in this incomparable community. Its current portfolio also includes Seagate Custom and Model Homes at Isola Bella at Talis Park, Custom Homes at Esplanade Lake Club and upcoming projects at Quail West.
