This condominium was built in 1992, decorated in a Mediterranean style with warm spice tones, and on the market for 348 days. Naming the property was the 1st step in the transformation showcasing the exceptional natural preserve and water view. The name “River Queen” was chosen making the connection to Katherine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart’s romantic adventures in the movie “The African Queen” and the iconic rugged river scenes. The next step was changing the Mediterranean décor. The walnut entertainment center was painted a soft white and SW Everyday Beige was used throughout the condo unifying and brightening the spaces. Coastal furnishings were mixed in with existing traditional furniture and accessories reinforcing the adventure, fun, and travel theme. Accent pieces such as Steamer trunks, vintage suitcases, nautical wall art, flamingos and a coral collection was used to complete the look. The preparation and staging of this condo took 14 days resulting in multiple offers and an accepted contract to purchase for full list price.
