Ronto Selects Designers for Models at Seaglass at Bonita Bay

The Ronto Group has selected three design firms to create the interiors of the model residences to be presented at Seaglass at Bonita Bay, a 26-floor, 120-unit high-rise tower to be built by Ronto within Bonita Bay. The designs will be created by Robb & Stucky International, Cinnabar Design, and Renee Gaddis Interiors. The models will include the finishes now on display at the Seaglass Design Studio at the Seaglass Sales Center at 26951 Country Club Drive within Bonita Bay.

Situated nearly 250 feet from its closest neighboring building, Seaglass will feature fully-completed, ready for occupancy residences with premium finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim. Each residence will come with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available. Three tower residence great room floor plans at Seaglass range from 2,889 to 3,421 square feet and are priced from just over $1 million. The penthouse residences at Seaglass are priced from $2.5 million and offer approximately 4,600 square feet.

Robb & Stucky International’s Susan J. Vleda and Rachelle Porco will create the interior for the 804 tower residence at Seaglass. The spacious 3,088 square feet floor plan includes three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a den, an open great room, dining area, and island kitchen, terrace space totaling 485 square feet, and a private elevator foyer.

Vleda and Porco’s design will exude sophistication while providing an exceptional level of livability. Set against a background wall tone of soft sandy bisque that runs throughout the home, their color palette will include light creams and whites. Muted accents of frosted glass will be layered with matte gold and silver metallics. Furnishings will be clean lined with fabrics that include leather against cotton and linen.

Upon exiting the elevator into the private lobby, the sandy tones, natural woods, and lustrous surfaces will immediately evoke a sense of being beachside. A high-backed shelter sofa upholstered in a bisque fabric will be set against faux-finished walls that display clear glass beads reminiscent of bubbles rising from the water.

In the wide foyer, a long side wall will accommodate a putty colored console table and a stylish wall-mounted mirror. An area rug will add a layer of texture. The foyer opens to the expansive great room, dining room, and kitchen with breathtaking views through sliding glass doors onto a spacious terrace.

In the living area, a dramatic 10-foot wide fireplace will be installed within a built-out section of wall adorned with glistening wallpaper. On either side of the fireplace, thick glass shelving with the look of seaglass will be lighted from above to create bright display space that can also be muted for softer mood lighting. Two sofas perpendicular to the fireplace will be upholstered in bisque linen. Accent pillows will provide textured contrast while maintaining tone-on-tone elegance. Two easy chairs will face the fireplace, while in the center of the grouping a 60 x 60-inch cocktail table will make a statement with its heavy glass top evoking an affinity with seaglass and the sea shore.

To highlight the adjacent dining area, Vleda and Porco have designed a striking rectangular ceiling structure with recessed lighting and tiered layers. An eye-catching chandelier will illuminate a rectangular dining table with seating for eight. A buffet console will stand against a wall with a matte metallic finish.

The contemporary L-shaped kitchen will feature a counter-height island. Counter stools in a matte gold finish will be upholstered in a shimmery bisque leather while distinctive pendant lighting will showcase interesting glass designs. Light-toned finishes will be selected for the perimeter and island cabinetry with complementary light counter surfaces. Many of the cabinets will feature frosted glass fronts.

The bisque color scheme will continue on the terrace. Vleda and Porco have selected a wicker furniture in neutral tones offering both style and comfort. The space will allow for designated dining and lounging areas, with room for a summer kitchen. The glistening water view will feel like a natural extension of the beauty inside.

A hallway leads to the den and two guest suites that open to another wide terrace at the front of the building. The multi-purpose den will offer a relaxed retreat space that can function as an office, a separate lounging area, or as an additional bedroom. The plan calls for light-toned built-in cabinetry across an entire wall with interconnected lighted shelving and a spacious desk. An armchair and ottoman will be grouped with a sleeper sofa.

In the master suite, the neutral wall tones will deepen slightly by way of contrast. Vleda and Porco will continue the seaglass motif in this serene private retreat by artfully incorporating Lucite into the design. A contemporary four poster bed will command attention with a unique combination of Lucite and a matte gold metallic finish. The effect will be solid and stylish and enhanced by a fabulous arrangement of linens. On either side of the bed, the nightstands will showcase a blend of white and mirrored finishes while the tall dresser will be entirely mirrored to reflect the natural light from the large window and sliding glass doors that lead onto the terrace. A hallway past his and her closets leads to the master bathroom where the design will include sea sponges, shells, and a background of stunning wall paper.
