Theory Design features interior for Genova model at Esplanade Lake Club

Theory Design has completed the interior design for Seagate Development Group’s furnished Genova model – which is under contract at Esplanade Lake Club. Esplanade Lake Club is Fort Myers’ newest resort-lifestyle, gated community by Taylor Morrison. It is east of I-75, just one minute from Gulf Coast Town Center, a short drive from Southwest Florida International Airport and situated on a nearly 700-acre recreational lake. Theory Design also created the interiors for the furnished Santorini and Monaco models, both of which recently sold at Esplanade Lake Club. An architectural design by R.G. Designs is featured in all three model homes.

The furnished Genova model is 3,892 square feet of living space over four bedrooms plus a study, four-and-two-half baths, and a three-car garage. A global, modern concept reflects a world-travel style that is apparent in the art, fabrics, rugs and accessories. Examples are earthy colors with neutral backgrounds, particularly in

“It’s nice to live in a happy space, especially when things are tough,” she says.
