Theory Design creating interior design for Bal Harbour model at Hill Tide Estates in Boca Grande

Theory Design’s Vice President of Design Ruta Menaghlazi is creating the interior design for Seagate Development Group’s furnished Bal Harbour model now under construction at Hill Tide Estates, a 9.98-acre gated enclave on the southern tip of Boca Grande being developed by Seagate on Gasparilla Island, Florida. The Bal Harbour is one of three models available for purchase at Hill Tide Estates.

Designed by RG Designs, the three-level Bal Harbour floor plan includes 5,198 square feet under air on the two living levels. The plan’s ground level entry and a front porch are flanked by two oversized garages. In addition to the garage areas, the ground level includes massive storage spaces that are perfect for storing beach, fishing, and boating gear. A ground level foyer provides access to an elevator and a staircase that lead to the living levels. The first living level will showcase a spacious great room, an island kitchen, dining area, study, and a second master suite. The entire living area, including the study and second master suite, open to a deck with a pool and spa, and to an outdoor living area with conversation and dining areas, an outdoor kitchen, and a pool bath. The second living level features a bonus room with a wet bar, the master suite, and two VIP guest suites. The bonus room, master suite, and one of the VIP guest suites open to a comfortably sized deck that will offer an ideal place to enjoy sunsets over the Gulf. The deck overlooks the pool and outdoor living area.

Ruta’s interior design for the Bal Harbour model will convey a relaxing combination of coastal, rustic, and modern styles. The “at the beach” motif will be established by the home’s white windows and trim, a striking standing seam metal roof, and Hardy-Board siding. Inside, white linen and soft grey wall tones will be contrasted by grey, navy blue, and pear green accents. The color palette will play against brushed light oak hardwood flooring. The staircase will feature horizontal iron railings, white risers, and treads that match the light oak hardwood flooring. Painted or stained ship-lap wainscoting and ceiling details will be presented in select areas of the home. The cabinetry in the kitchen and baths will be white wood with relaxed weathered finishes that will be featured in combination with leathered counter surfaces. The first living level’s outdoor living area will provide a relaxing retreat, complete with an infinity edge pool with a spa and sun shelves.

The second living level will continue the design’s emphasis on creating a relaxed ambiance and will feature a wet bar in the spacious bonus room as well as a morning bar. The master suite will include two large walk-in closets and a bath with separate vanities, a free-standing tub, and a walk-in shower.

Seagate’s completed Captiva model at Hill Tide Estates is open for viewing and also features an interior design by Ruta Menaghlazi. Theory Design was named recipient of a 2019 Aurora Award for the Captiva’s interior in the Best Interior Design of a Home Priced over $2 million category. Seagate was presented an Aurora Award for the Captiva in the Best Single-Family Detached Home Over 4,000 Square Feet category. In addition to the Bal Harbour and the Captiva, BCB Homes’ Beacon model is in development.

Seagate’s Captiva model includes 4,865 square feet under air and 11,184 square feet under roof. The ground level features two garages and a lower foyer. The first living level includes a great room, island kitchen, and dining area that open to the lanai, a study, and the master suite. The master bath features separate vanities, a free-standing tub, and a walk-in shower. A staircase leads to the second level that presents three guest ensuites and a bonus room with a wet bar. In addition to a pool and spa, the outdoor living area includes a pool bath, outdoor kitchen, and an outdoor dining area. Ruta’s design for the Captiva’s interior conveys a coastal feeling. Beige walls, blue and turquoise accents, and light oak flooring provide a connection to the community’s beachfront setting.
