Theory Design completes new interior design for remodeled condo in Bay Colony

Theory Design’s Vice President of Design Ruta Menaghlazi and interior designer Cynde Thompson have completed a new interior design for a remodeled condominium in the Remington high-rise within Bay Colony at Pelican Bay.  The residence was built in 1996.  The original designer created a Tuscan style interior with heavy, ornate furnishings, a color palette that included golds, greens, and russet reds, silks and tapestry fabrics, bullion-fringed pillows, and swag silk valances, draperies, and sheers.  Many areas of the home featured heavily textured wallcoverings with traditional prints that included dark backgrounds and gold accents.  Dramatic lighting fixtures, ornate chandeliers and sconces with gold and bronze finishes, and accessories such as heavy iron and onyx stone bowls in the dining room contributed to the visual weight of the design.

The objective of the remodeling project was to update and lighten the entire residence in two phases.  The first phase was completed in 2019 and included remodeling the entire master bathroom, the baths in the two guest bedrooms, the powder bath, installing new wood flooring in the bedrooms, replacing the lighting with more modern fixtures, lightening the look of the home with a refreshed color palette and new wall coverings and window treatments, replacing the original furnishings, and changing the flooring on the outdoor balcony areas.  Completed this past October, phase two included remodeling the entire kitchen and breakfast area and installing new wood flooring in the main living area and hallway to match the new flooring in the bedrooms.
