Israel at last... I'd been hoping to visit Israel for years. Yes, I was curious to finally see the land of my Sunday school teachings first hand. And, I frankly could not envision how modern Israelis negotiated a country so rooted in the past. So, it took little persuasion for me to join my friend, ex-pat, fab-designer Shai Deluca-Tamasi on a two-week sojourn through the country he knows so well. We hope the photos and stories we share with you in this issue entice you to plan your own visit to this extraordinary destination. If you want company, I can free my schedule. I'm ready to go back any time.

WORDS BY YANIC SIMARD PHOTOGRAPHY BY BRANDON BARRÉ

Often, when homeowners move into a new space, whether freshly built or staged to sell, they'll find the house simply doesn't feel like a home. Designer Yanic Simard shares his rules for claiming a new space and creating an interior that feels familiar and comfortable.

Benjamin Moore Classic Gray OC-23

20

MAY 2014


DESIGN

Rather than replacing original details like mouldings and doors to achieve a more “perfect” look, allow these elements to become features using contrasting paint colours and finishes. Dabble Savvy: In this Victorian house the walls, ceiling and trim are painted in one shade only, Benjamin Moore’s OC-23 Classic Gray. A single colour throughout visually obscures uneven lines and imperfections. A matte finish is used on walls and ceiling while the trim gets subtle emphasis with a satin finish. The doors are painted in Benjamin Moore’s 2121-10 Gray—a deeper shade that makes them pop for architectural interest. MAY 2014

21


HOME TOUR

To create a sense of personal history, introduce treasured items already owned. In this space, Yanic repurposed the metal art mirror above the sofa where it becomes a focal point. Benches create bridges between different zones within an open concept space. The black leather tufted bench is part of the conversation grouping and an extra seat near the fireplace. Dabble Savvy: Blend vintage and contemporary pieces to blur time periods and create a custom, timeless impression.

Never settle for a pre-existing layout—experiment with new furniture arrangements and always pull seating away from the walls. Dabble Savvy: Turn a singular window seat into a destination with furniture and lighting. The walnut stools anchor the seating arrangement and the glass globe chandelier and plug-in sconces provide a flattering layer of light.

To add character without clutter include sheer and see-through elements like the draperies and peek-a-boo seating. Dabble Savvy: Mirrored finishes and reflective metals (like the gold-leaf glass cocktail cubes in the living room) enrich almost any colour scheme without creating visual overload. Avoid a "matchy-matchy" look by casually mixing metals in warm and cool tones.

Business of Design followers entered some stunning living room projects for a Dabble social media contest. Congratulations Theo Flamenbaum for submitting this winning photo. Theo designed his small, urban condo to utilize every inch possible. This designer loves to entertain, and a sectional allowed him to maximize seating. A mix of textures­­—grasscloth walls, woven carpet and sleek furniture— creates a dynamic but comfortable space, where guests feel right at home. Theo clearly loves to reference his travels as evidenced by the elegant stone Buddha head. Well done Theo!

MAY 2014


DESIGN

Though it’s difficult to determine the structure’s exact age, it is clear that it is hundreds of years old. Over time, changes and additions had damaged the original integrity of the dwelling. The central ideal, therefore, was to restore the original characteristics—the stone walls, the segmented ceilings and the arches—to peel back and expose the original state.

DESIGN

The historical is expressed by preserving the textures and materials of the building’s outer shell and by respecting the engineering accordingly. The modern is expressed by opening spaces and altering the internal flow, and by incorporating natural materials such as stainless steel, iron and wood. Pistou’s project succeeds in both honoring and preserving the historical and romantic values of the structure while creating a contemporary project suited to today’s lifestyle.

SHOP ISRAEL WORDS BY Shai DeLuca-Tamasi

I am a dying breed. I admit it. My generation of Israelis is globalminded, well travelled and sadly, in the last decade or so, often looking outside our borders for design trends. Not me. Though an ex-pat, I am also a proudly patriotic citizen of Israel and I am astounded by the homegrown art and design scene that’s flourishing today. Local artisans are pulling inspiration from 5,700+ years of history, leaving international companies desperate to break into the booming scene. MAY 2014

SPECIAL FEATURE

TEXTILES

Furniture

Israel’s textile industry used to be a vast one with fabrics produced by hand. As the world turned to mass production, manufacturers looked East for less expensive alternatives and, until recently, the industry was nearly abolished.

As a designer, I’m forever looking for functional items that have a new and interesting twist. In my experience, bar/ counter stools can be somewhat utilitarian. But not at the hand of Ushki Design Studio.

Thankfully a new generation of fashion and design artisans is embracing craftsmanship and the textile industry is recovering.

Shai’s Buy: I love these birch veneered, coloured paper, steel framed works of art... or, seating. I’ll be placing my order tomorrow morning!

Mika Barr is a textile designer who stumbled on a process for manipulating and reshaping fabrics into striking new geometric shapes. Mika’s textiles now cover lampshades, furniture and hand bags. Shai’s Buy: I couldn’t resist purchasing a new floor lamp (adapted to North American voltage) from Mika’s line of textile enhanced goods. www.mikabarr.com

Soda Stream

The Hamsa

Importing goods to Israel was traditionally very expensive, so it was rare to spot North American staples like Coca-Cola and Pepsi on store shelves. Not to be left out, Israel invented the Soda Stream. Years ago it allowed the locals to fit simple soda gas canisters into standard bottles and infuse the beverage with bubbles. Today, of course, you’ll find every type of soda imagined on local shelves and Soda Stream has rebranded itself to a worldwide audience.

Some refer to this traditional relic as the hand of Fatima. In Arabic, Hamsa means five. Everyone agrees the elegant icon is a symbol of good luck and, in some cultures, a protector from the evil eye.

Shai’s Buy: My fave is the new design line in blue. It’s fully automated—one press of a button and voilà, custom carbonation. www.sodastream.ca

Shai’s Buy: Travellers to Israel will be spoiled for choice as most shops carry at least a few versions of this favourite memento. I picked up two at Irit Goldberg Ceramics. www.iritgoldberg.co.il

EILAT & RED SEA

If you think Israel is all history and no play, think again. Locals are quick to point to Eilat as an oasis, a romping vacation destination. Wedged between Akaba, Jordan to the east and the Egyptian Sinai desert to the west, Eilat was historically a trade route. Jewelry lovers will also delight in this little fact­—it's the only place on earth where the Eilat or King Solomon stone is mined.

If I say the setting is an unparalleled phenomenon (I stole this from the website) would you believe me? How about this?

DIY to DYE for:

MATERIALS 1 fiber-reactive dye kit 2 rubber gloves 1 medium mixing bowl

2 (1-gallon) buckets Iron & Ironing board 3 to 4 yards of fabric

DIRECTIONS Wash then dry the fabric to be dyed with the soap provided by the dye manufacturer (in dye kit). In a medium mixing bowl, prepare the liquid concentrate: Mix together 1 cup water, 2 to 4 tbsp urea, and 2 tbsp dye. In a bucket, prepare a soda solution by stirring 9 tbsp soda ash into 1 gallon warm water. Wear rubber gloves to handle the liquid concentrate during the dying process. Place the fabric in a separate empty bucket and pour the liquid concentrate on top, pressing the fabric with your gloved hands so the liquid completely covers the fabric. Press out any air bubbles, and let the fabric sit for 15 minutes in the concentrate. Add the soda solution, and press the fabric again to completely cover with the liquid. Leave the fabric to soak in the dye mixture for 1 hour. Then, wearing rubber gloves, remove and wring out fabric under running water. Rinse the fabric until the water runs clear. Wash the dyed fabric in hot water in your washer, then dry in the dryer. Press with a hot iron.

Tilapia Marinade INGREDIENTS 4 tilapia 3 lemons 3 limes 1 bunch of fresh cilantro 12-15 cloves of garlic 2 tbsp paprika Salt and pepper 8 tbsp olive oil

PREPARATION Cut citrus in half widthwise and squeeze juice into a small bowl. Pour juice into a strainer to collect seeds. Dabble Savvy: Roll lemons and limes with the palm of your hand against the countertop. It makes them easier to squeeze. Chop the garlic finely. Wash the cilantro, clip the leaves and chop finely.

DIRECTIONS

In a medium mixing bowl combine the oil, garlic, paprika, cilantro and citrus juice. Whisk thoroughly. Place tilapia in a small bowl and pour marinade over the fish. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and rest in the fridge for 3-6 hours before cooking. Preheat grill to high or pre-heat oven to 375Ëš. Grilling Instructions: Place tilapia on the grill. Make sure the fish has no excess oil or it may create a flame that will give it a burnt flavour. Grill the tilapia for 6-7 minutes flipping half way through. Remove from grill, slice evenly and serve immediately. Oven instructions: Place fish on a baking sheet lined with parchment or silicon. Place in oven and cook for 10-15 minutes or until fully cooked.

I dabble in... WORDS AND PHOTOGRAPHY BY Jonathan Hayward

Photography with a stuffed bear. Rolie the Bear got his start after my daughter Findlay was born. Since I was on the road a lot (I'm a national photographer for The Canadian Press), I wanted a way of staying in touch with Fin by showing her what I was doing on the road. I bought two stuffed polar bears: one for myself (Rolie) and one for Fin (Polie). Fin loved them. When we Skyped I’d put Rolie on screen and her face lit up. Today, I email her photos of Rolie and his adventures. These are some of my faves.

Rolie takes in the Great Wall of China.

I recently discovered back country skiing and can’t wait to explore the sport in future winters. Jonathan recently photographed the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Of course, Rolie was there too.

Living in Deep Cove, North Vancouver I have returned to my childhood love of waterskiing. I hit the water over 100 days a year to slalom, trick, jump and wake surf. Today I am a member of the Vancouver Water Ski Club.
