Theory Design has announced that it is creating new interior designs for residences being renovated in the Remington skyscraper within Bay Colony in Pelican Bay and in the community of Colliers Reserve. With 3,410 square feet below ground and 4,110 total square feet of living space, including a covered wraparound terrace, the Remington Condominium was built in 1996. The floor plan includes a private elevator that opens to the hall of the house, a formal living room with a bar, a formal dining room, a kitchen with a breakfast nook, a den next to the kitchen, a family room, three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. The project will be carried out in two phases during this summer and summer 2020.
Theory Design will transform the tasteful yet traditional Tuscan look of the Remington unit into a fresh, clean-lined transitional retreat with eclectic coastal flair. When complete, the remodeled unit will be a sophisticated, upscale residence with high-end finishes and an updated, fashionable look. Designers selected a soothing color palette in muted blue tones, natural linen fabrics, and grasscloth wallcoverings accented with coastal and nature-themed artwork. The original travertine stone floors in the living areas will be included in the new design while the carpeting in the bedrooms will be replaced with seven inch wide brushed oak flooring. The flooring on the terraces will be replaced by more contemporary tiling. Textured wall coverings, painted finishes and new lighting throughout the residence will contribute to the new look. All bathrooms will be transformed into bright and airy spaces with new cabinetry and new plumbing fixtures. All existing furniture will be replaced with sophisticated and elegant selections. Built-in units in the lounge and living room are being removed and will be replaced with sophisticated, high-end splashbacks, elegant sconces and selections of artwork. All remnants of the original heavy Tuscan look will essentially be removed and replaced with elements that are both cleaner and more in line with today’s design trends.
The new look of the home will be immediately evident in the foyer which will be redone with woven wall covering, new chandelier and sconces, and captivating art selections. The formal living room will be outfitted with elegant and comfortable furnishings, including a low, sleek credenza and a large, textured rug. The room’s heavy draperies on the runners leading to the terrace will be replaced with crown molding that wraps around the runners and flanking drapery panels. The wet bar counter will be redone with a quartz counter with a new upper cabinet. The formal dining room will be a space in itself. An existing recessed and dining table base will be painted black and eventually replaced during phase two of the project. New neutral linen dining chairs will surround the table. The kitchen and family room will also be redone next summer. As expected, a massive built-in will be replaced by a sleek credenza. The powder bath will be totally transformed with a new floating vanity with a beautiful countertop surface, mirror and sconces. The existing wallpaper will be replaced with a textured wallcovering. New draperies, new bed and seating treatment as well as a new paint color will be introduced to the owner’s bedroom. The owner’s bathroom will feature new mirror cabinets, a frameless glass shower enclosure, new mirrors and new lighting. One of the guest bedrooms will feature new hardwood floors, new furniture and new bedding. The guest bathroom will be refreshed with new countertops and new wallpaper. The unit’s large laundry room will also be refreshed with new wall coverings. The designers will keep the furniture on the terrace but will replace the cushions. A beautiful heirloom table piece that belongs to the owners will be incorporated.
The four-bedroom, 3,894-square-foot under-air residence being renovated at Colliers Reserve is a single-family home that had an old-world Tuscan look with wine-themed decor. The floor plan also includes a double door entry, a formal living room, a formal dining room, a huge family room with double pocket sliders overlooking a swimming pool and the community golf course, a kitchen with a casual dining room and a large laundry room. room. Lush landscaping provides a sense of privacy for the enclosed outdoor living space which includes an outdoor kitchen and entertaining area. Prior to the remodel, virtually every room in the house had faux finished walls and wooden ceilings. Columns with a faux marble-like finish were found in the living areas. The renovation project is still evolving and will bring a more modern look to the house. Columns will be phased out, ceilings will be closed off and neutral white tones will be introduced. The new cabinets will be presented in white with graphite and gray accents. Drywall will be replaced with textured surfaces. Existing iron patterns and heavy brick elements will be removed. New slides and new lights will be installed.
In addition to its renovation projects at Bay Colony and Colliers Reserve, Theory Design designs the interiors of Seagate Development Group’s luxury models at Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club, Quail West, Talis Park, Windward Isle and Esplanade Lake Club. Theory Design created the interior of Seagate’s furnished Cayman II model which is now open for viewing and purchase in Windward Isle, a gated enclave of 28 luxury single-family homes developed by Seagate just south of Orange Blossom Drive on Airport-Pulling Road in North Naples. Windward Isle was named the 2019 Residential Community of the Year by the Aurora Awards. Seagate’s award-winning furnished Captiva model in Hill Tide Estates in Boca Grande is also open for viewing and purchase and features interior design by Theory Design’s Vice President of Design, Ruta Menaghlazi. Theory Design was named the recipient of a 2019 Aurora Award for the interior design of the Captiva in the category of Best Interior Design for a Home Awarded Over $2 Million. Theory Design has also completed the interior design concept and finish selections for Seagate’s furnished Bal Harbor model at Hill Tide Estates. As expected, Bal Harbor’s interior will convey a relaxing combination of coastal, rustic and modern styles.
