Purity. Sensuality. Intelligence. This open-plan interior in Berlin offers ample space for cooking and socializing. It combines a wall-mounted b3 system with a bulthaup monoblock. Sleek sandy-beige aluminum panels from oor to ceiling on the kitchen wall contrasts with the texture of the brick in the dining and living area. The look and feel of the aluminum changes with the light, and introduces additional elegance and warmth to the room. Moreover, bulthaup’s unique anodizing method ensures the aluminum surfaces are exceptionally robust, and well suited for kitchen use. To see what else bulthaup kitchens have to offer, please contact your African retail partner domum.bulthaup.com

I’ll tell you what also goes hand in hand: the attraction of opposites like traditional and modern or antique and up-to-the-minute, like retro and futuristic. ‘Modern’ denotes a period 50 or so years ago. Modern is vintage, and as such it’s almost silly to peg a timeframe on a look unless it’s for the purpose of provenance. Fashion will teach you this for free. I hope you enjoy the interiors and design features in this issue. We’ve gone into kitchen styles in depth and also feature a host of homes which work elements of different periods together with a very unformulaic flair.

I

want to tell you about an unbelievably tiny kitchen I had in an apartment in Hong Kong, because it was quite a thrill creating food from scratch in such a confined space. We’re talking a-bitbigger-than-a-yoga-mat tiny. The sink covered up to allow more prep space, the cooker was a single plate that was stored in a drawer and plugged in on the counter, the microwave was also a convection oven, and it was beautiful, sleek, white oak marble and chrome. The cabinets lit up when you opened them. A lot of ergonomic intel went into making it a pleasure to be in, and I’d have to put it in my top five dream kitchens for people who love to spread out. The comfort of non-negotiable efficiency was absolute bliss. Of course, a family would struggle operating from it, but I feel sure that you can take the stringent space management ideas on which that kitchen depended and scale them up a bit to make it more family-friendly. This is the job of interior design: to make space work for you. The job of decorating is to make it look fabulous, but more often than not, the two go hand in hand.

SIGNATURE STYLE Kelly Adami of Copperleaf Studio is grabbing the spotlight for her sleek and welcoming interiors. Here, she tells H&G about the design elements of her latest project

POINTS OF VIEW ‘Located on the eighth floor of a new development in the heart of Sandton, this inner-city apartment was designed to catch the eye of those with a love for city dwelling. My client bought it as an investment with a view to short-term rentals, and his needs were simple: furnish the space to exude comfort, luxury and convenience. Expansive views from almost every room were key to the design direction: I took colour inspiration from the greys, blues and browns of the cityscape, with graphic black and white details to ground the scheme.’ APRIL 2019 HOUSE GARDEN

25


SLICK MEETS SNUG ‘We used a mix of glass and metallic elements to add a slick sense of glamour to the space. This we offset with warmer textures such as wood, handmade ceramics and plush wool rugs to ensure the space was smart but also inviting – both swanky and snug. This interplay is probably most obvious in the entrance hall, which is designed to set the tone for the rest of the apartment. I particularly love the console from La Grange Interiors; its lines are somehow both sleek and organic.’

CLOCKWISE FROM ABOVE: NEU SMALL PITCHER, R430, MEZZANINE; TOKAI VASE, R495, SCULPTURED VASE, R695, BOTH WEYLANDTS

SOFT SERVE ‘In the bedrooms we used 100% cotton, 400-thread-count linen from Linen Drawer. This one is their special Blue Vapour colour – the ideal hue for talking to the blue haze that hangs in the sky above Sandton on our scorching summer days. We mixed this with cushions in Aureum Design’s Duna fabric in Seafog and a plush dirty-green throw from Haus. We used these large perspex bedside lamps specifically because of their scale relative to the wooden pedestals – it’s important to choose a lamp that’s big enough to hold its own in a space rather than get lost in it.’

P H OTO G R A P H S : K A R L R O G E R S , S U P P L I E D

‘It’s important to make the most of beautiful views and invite the outside in’


SKYLINE LIVING ‘One downside to urban living is limited access to nature, so it’s important to make the most of beautiful views and invite the outside in. We achieved this with our nature-inspired colour palette, which helps to blend Joburg’s skyline – packed full of foliage and clear blue skies – with the interior of the home.’ COLUMN EVERGLADE MEDIUM PLANTER (LEFT), R850, SHF; DUAL FLOOR VASE, R149, MEZZANINE

MOMENTS OF IMPACT ‘Since the dining room is an entertainment space, it was an opportunity to create some excitement. The black-and-white horse print acts as a focal point, drawing your eye in, while the smooth black table contrasts with the electric-blue chairs for a sleek and dramatic scene. Natural earthy elements, such as the ceramic vases, ground and soften the scheme.’  copperleafstudio.co.za

DESIGN NEWS

Merging Makers IKEA teams up with top African creatives to release limited-edition collection PROJECT Two years ago, IKEA teamed up with a group of designers, architects, artists and creatives from five African countries for a collaboration centring on shared modern urban rituals and the importance they hold in the home. The result is the limited-edition ÖVERALLT collection, which was launched at the most recent Design Indaba Festival in Cape Town. TOP SUSTAINABLE TOTE BAG IN POLYESTER, POLYPROPYLENE, POLYETHYLENE AND ALUMINIUM BY MARIAM HAZEM AND HEND RIAD

The idea for ÖVERALLT sprang from IKEA’s desire to learn more about the contemporary African design scene and the creative explosion on the continent. To that end, 10 creatives – all connected to Design Indaba and its network – were chosen to team up with five IKEA designers. The starting point was to explore the urban rituals shared by almost every culture – socialising around food; indoor and outdoor living; and rituals around expressing identity. The result is a collection of products aimed at building bridges and discovering the ‘urban living room’.

INTENTION ‘We want to encourage people to come together and eat, share stories, be creative and spend time with one another. And, thanks to the discussions we’ve had along the way, each design has a way of supporting that. ÖVERALLT is like a toolkit for socialising,’ says James Futcher, Creative Leader at IKEA. The collection will be available in all IKEA stores from May 2019. It includes furniture, tableware, textiles and a sustainable tote bag, among other items. 28

KAREN NEWMAN SHARES HER THOUGHTS ON...

#2 MAKING AN ENTRANCE: The front door

1

As the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a ďŹ rst impression. From a building’s exterior, the front door is usually the focal point, and the ďŹ rst thing that visitors see, so it needs to be inviting. A door that’s ‘just right’ welcomes you in and sets the tone for a visually pleasing aesthetic. Position, position, position. The placement of the front door is vital in the architectural planning, as it determines the layout of the building. It controls movement to and from, and a house with an incorrectly placed front door often feels off-kilter – as echoed in Feng Shui philosophy, which maintains that a house gets its energy and nourishment through the front door. Whether your architectural style is traditional, transitional or contemporary, certain rules apply.

HERE ARE OUR TOP TIPS FOR GETTING IT RIGHT‌ Ideally, you should enter your front door from the south to best enjoy the north light, and maximise privacy. [1] Make the entrance immediately visible as soon as the building is in sight, so that the approach is clear. There should be no detours in reaching the front door. Landscaping – both hard and soft – can be very effective in marking out this progression, and drawing people in. Give the front door a bold visible shape. Architectural details such as mouldings, columns or recessed doorways emphasise a doorway and provide interest. Make your front door pop – here, contrast is key. A front door should be visually distinct from the rest of the facade, perhaps in a different colour, or a different texture. A bright colour 34

HOUSE

GARDEN APRIL 2019

or glossy paint ďŹ nish, for example, will both emphasise your front door and give it patina. [2] Over-scale your front door to create impact – whether this is a pivot door, double door or barn door. [3] Pots and planters placed on either side of a front door work well to draw your eye in, and give the entrance a pleasing sense of balance. Likewise, awnings that stand out from the exterior facade increase visibility – and provide you with shelter from the elements as you’re fumbling for your keys. [4] Steps leading up to a front entrance create a focal point. Avoid steps leading down to the entrance if possible – the front door will not be in clear sight as you approach the property. If steps down are unavoidable, make them generous in width. The door handle is important as a feature: either ornate, or slick and contemporary. It’s one of those allattention-to-detail features that create impact. Sometimes no door handle is also a statement. Repeat elements. For example, the arch of a transom window above the door could be repeated in the arch of an overhead awning. Create a landing place. A bench at the front door can be lovely and welcoming, and useful as a gathering spot as people come and go. [5] Q  newmanarchitecture.co.za @newman_architecture_design

TAPS The basin is a focal point in the kitchen, with the faucet being one of the handiest tools in your culinary arsenal. When it comes to choosing your weapon, form should follow function: large, deep basins require high-arching mixers, preferably with pull-out spouts to reach the furthest corners. Narrow, flat spouts preserve space around small washing-up areas, while complementing a more conservative kitchen design.

ynbos is an ancient vegetation endemic to the tip of the African continent in an area known as the Cape Floristic Region. In terms of diversity, density and number of endemic plant species, the region is classified by Unesco as one of the world’s most outstanding examples of ecological, biological and evolutionary processes in the world. ‘I am passionate about South Africa, and fynbos is the perfect metaphor to depict the diversity of our country: we share so much diversity, yet are all rooted in the same beautiful landscape,’ says Giselle. It was wanting to share this deep connection with the land, as well as a move back to Cape Town after 20 years, to a property in the Renosterveld Biome of the Cape Winelands ‘literally covered in naturally occurring fynbos’, that saw the genesis of the Cape Town Fynbos Experience. Set in the historic Company’s Garden, the experience is a contemporary way to engage with the Cape’s protected indigenous flora through innovative apothecary workshops and fynbos tastings. However it doesn’t end there: Giselle has also developed a delicate range of fynbos salts using hand-harvested Atlantic sea salt from the Cape’s

Walking into the tasting room, one is hit by the fragrance of fresh fynbos – Rhino bush, Cancer bush (Lessertia frutescens), Buchu and Snow bush (Eriocephalus africanus) line the centre of the tasting table. Glass beakers ďŹ lled with tea infusions such as local rooibos and honeybush, petri dishes topped with fresh stalks of Spekboom (Portulacaria afra) and fynbos salts are all artfully arranged at individual place settings. ‘Our focus is creating experiences and products that do fynbos proud and make unique culinary avours accessible,’ says Giselle. Where to next for this energetic botanical heritage advocate? Word on the ground is that urban fynbos trails and her Sorghum Gose botanical beer collaboration with Little Wolf Brewing Co. are fresh areas of growth. Q  capetownfynbosexperience.co.za

KNOW HOW

Eat Your Greens Franchesca Watson’s no-fuss approach to getting food from your garden

Use parsley, strawberries or chives as pretty border plants. A creeping thyme such as Bressingham makes a great groundcover between paving stones. Plant tall beauties such as fennel, dill and broad beans at your borders to give wonderful textures at height. Make your creepers productive: plant granadillas, kiwi fruit and table grapes over your pergola. Cover your fences in thorny berries such as blackberries and raspberries. They make a delicious added layer of security! Make pyramids of cane (or more formal metal ones) and send your beans and peas shooting up them.

COVER YOUR FENCES IN BERRIES RIGHT FRUIT TREES SERVE AS A DELICIOUS FOCAL POINT

HOUSE

GARDEN APRIL 2019

Instead of topiary in your pots, plant citrus trees and trim them into shape. Bay trees also clip well, if you would like topiary pyramids or shapes. Mix rhubarb, artichokes and zucchini into your shrubberies for beautiful leaf texture. Onions and leeks mixed with your garden plants will bring gorgeous orbshaped owers into the mix. Plant avenues of fruit trees – mango, litchi and avocado in more subtropical areas, and sweet chestnut, persimmon, loquat, walnut, mulberry or deciduous fruit in areas with colder winters. Olives make a great hedge if you plant them small. Choose those that bush out from the base. Pineapples and bananas will add an immediate tropical look. Beetroot, cabbage (particularly savoy types), lettuce and spinach all have great leaves and will add interest to your plantings. Figs are absolutely marvellous as smallish shade trees, or trained onto espalier garden dividers.

ARTICHOKES MIXED INTO SHRUBBERY MAKE FOR INTERESTING LEAF TEXTURE ABOVE OLIVE TREES CAN BECOME AN EXCELLENT HEDGE

Jerusalem artichokes ower like gorgeous sunowers on tall, leggy stems and can grow as tall as a human. Flax, or linseed, is the most beautiful vertical, textured, annual plant and very useful – harvest those seeds. Tomatoes, gooseberries and aubergines are all crops that can be mixed in with other plants. Guava and pomegranate trees provide personality and can be used as focal points. Rosemary plants serve well as hedges if you keep them well-trimmed. The prostrate rosemary is wonderful as an arching groundcover. Franchesca Watson  082 808 1287  franchescawatson.com Q

he owners of this Constantia home spent two years searching before settling on the suburb. Offering the perfect meeting point between a place that would welcome the couple’s many guests and also serve as a quiet refuge, it ticked the boxes – while serving as a blank canvas for their personal style. An idyllic family home thanks to a spacious garden and open-plan living spaces, it’s also a dream entertaining venue, with rooms that open up to the outdoor lounging areas, pool and terraced lawn beyond. While the house is an ideal showcase for the owners’ art, the collection actually came later. Rather than being a factor in their choice of house, the generous volumes and expansive walls were serendipitous features that lent themselves to the couple’s newfound affinity for the local art scene. Following their discovery of a wealth of artists whose work resonated once they moved to South Africa, their collection has grown to include some of the country’s leading talent. Friendships with the artists themselves have come as an added benefit. ‘It’s a smaller community in South Africa, and the art is more accessible despite the quality of the work,’ comments the owner. Powerful mixed-media works by the likes of Mikhael Subotzky, Brett Murray and Kudzanai Chiurai – photography, installation, collage – command the walls and lend depth to the spaces. ‘It helps to choose a work if you like the artist,’ he adds. While the art is predominantly local, the overall sensibility of the space is very much a global one. ‘We wanted the decor to be a mix of influences. On the contemporary side stylistically, but not cold,’ offers the owner. This they’ve APRIL 2019 HOUSEANDGARDEN.CO.ZA

achieved by playing with different periods – revamping vintage pieces and reimagining some mid-century finds in a modern incarnation with up-to-date fabrics and finishes. The remaining furniture was all custom-designed – to fill the large spaces and to fit the couple’s aesthetic. Complemented by the largescale artworks, the rooms feel decorated despite the fairly minimal approach. Strong colour accents too ensure that the spaces aren’t clinical despite their spaciousness. ‘My wife likes colour – she would find a neutral palette too boring – but the scheme also needed to be calming and comfortable,’ the owner explains. As a result, toned-down, more adult versions of primary hues offer interest without being jarring – teal and turquoise rather than royal blue, and a warm saturated yellow are underpinned by rich punchy black across the board to ground it all. Pops of red are the predominant shade, and come through in the artwork, which seamlessly ties the rest of the scheme to an existing scarlet kitchen island. This clean but regal combination of rich tones and uncluttered spaces has a distinctly Eastern feel too. A favourite destination for the well-travelled couple, Japan’s influence is evident in the sparing approach to accessories, and in the clean contemporary lines that predominate. Pieces are purposefully chosen and carefully customised rather than superfluous or gratuitous; artfully placed rather than casually arranged. A metallic thread throughout adds to the simple elegance. ‘We didn’t want chrome – it’s too clinical – and gold is a little cheesy,’ he comments. But brass was a happy medium, and accents of it – in the custom bookshelves’ detailing or various decorative objects from Japan – contribute an understated and timeless glamour. This pared-back but elegant sensibility is apparent in the garden too. The precision lines of the all-green garden complement the interiors and the owners’ predisposition perfectly, despite having already been established when they moved in. ‘I’m Swiss, so I appreciated the precision and order. It’s always a calming place to return to,’ adds the owner. Q

ox, this 1930s apartment just steps from as been transformed with imaginative authority and air into a colourful urban universe for its Chinese, design-savvy owners. Using a very skilful style language, French designer Thomas Dariel has created a fusion of beautiful furniture of contemporary relevance – such as Hermès sofas, armchairs and lighting by India Mahdavi, deep-pile carpets from Tai Ping editions, and edgy modern art – and custom items designed by his own studio. The scene is elegant, graphic and geometrically correct. Like a multifaceted jewel, this unique vision offers astonishing versions of colour chromatics. The bright-blue walls of the living room are enhanced by swathes of rose-petal-pink wool carpet. In the bedroom, a lacy pattern wallpaper co-ordinates in rhythmic syncopation with the velvet cushions and plaid throw by India Mahdavi, and the celadon kitchen countertops temper the drama of ebony tiles laid like Hungarian parquet. The living room, dining room, bedroom and kitchen meet seamlessly via the use of noble materials and particular tonalities, yet each ourish accentuates the unique character of the decoration. Thomas, an intrepid traveller, moved to Shanghai at the age of 24. He promptly opened a studio to great acclaim, and proliďŹ c projects followed, such as hotels, clubs, private apartments and shops. But far from being an expat clichĂŠ, Thomas is a true admirer of the Song and Ming dynasties’ decoration and traditional Chinese craftsmanship. He subsequently opened a studio in Paris, and along with it a range of furniture accessories under the brand Maison Dada. The latter has a strong Memphis streak as its DNA, using playful shapes and potent colour to create and extend his personal proposal of the luxury of geometry.  Darielstudio.com; Maisondada.com 66

Horizontal plane Inspired by the architecture of the home, the scale and axes of the garden took their cue from the house, making the addition of a one metre high boundary wall to create a horizontal canvas in front of the house. Martine says, ‘My design process is to start a conversation that brings the house to the garden – and brings the garden to the house. Balancing the conversation creates many challenges. Designing solutions is what makes my work so satisfying.’ The horizontal planes enabled Martine to define the spaces and create enough interest to balance the scale and volume of the house.

Privacy, seclusion and sanctuary Boundary walls were blurred and the property’s neighbouring houses have been screened with a forest of soft evergreen trees and shrubbery. Pleached viburnum, Pittosporum and Buxus hedging allowed height, created privacy and became the framework of the formal structure into which the softer plantings were woven. The classic garden design is updated with scatterings of clipped Escallonia and Buxus domes around graphic meadow beds in the front lawn. The meadows have been planted with perennials in a matrix of grasses to create gentle foreground movement.

‘From our ďŹ rst meeting it was clear that the client and I would collaborate on the look and feel of the garden. Within days we had both put together a collection of visual story boards and discovered that many of our references were identical,’ says garden designer Martine de la Harpe. The collaboration that followed became the basis for a new friendship and remains an integral part of the success of this garden. The home was a recent acquisition in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg and during an extensive overhaul, the owners realised that the neglected garden they had inherited was sorely lacking. The challenge that faced them was to create privacy and screening from neighbouring houses in an awkwardly structured space and to transform years’ worth of overgrown shrubbery into a handsome garden on two levels. The design needed to visually connect with the recently updated architecture and the generous proportions of the home – and work for a busy family that loved to entertain and be outdoors. Having lived all over the world before settling in Johannesburg, the homeowner requested a planting palette that included a number of the exotic plants that she’d fallen for during her travels. On the top of her list – and in keeping with a green and white theme – were tall Silver Birches, Magnolia grandiora, white hydrangeas, Azalea indicas and Iceberg Roses. Favoured South African plants like Agapanthus ‘Great White’, buddlejas and arum lilies were incorporated into the scheme. The garden soon became an intoxicating blend of exotic and indigenous plantings. ‘In many ways, this is a garden of opposites and counterpoints set alongside one another to create balance and harmony – dark with light, exotic with indigenous, structured with loose and suburban with wilderness,’ says Martine. The introduction of owering meadow beds planted in drifts was a departure from the classical design of the home, and so it afforded an opportunity to deconstruct the formality of the green architecture with clipped domes scattered in and around the edges of the meadows with apparent randomness. ‘I love form and structure and I love being in Africa. I strive to build gardens that capture both, by deconstructing the formality of suburbia with the free spirit of the surrounding wilderness,’ says Martine.

s a partner and designer at Cécile & Boyd – the design studio that singlehandedly revolutionised the look of safari lodges 25 years ago with their designs for the Singita Group – Geordi de Sousa Costa is well-versed in all things aesthetic. In fact, just last year, her design and refurb of Singita’s Sweni Lodge (with direction by her brother, Boyd Ferguson) saw Cécile & Boyd celebrated internationally for its achievement in creating such an original APRIL 2019 HOUSEANDGARDEN.CO.ZA

new look. The low-slung, sleek, marvel of a lodge is defined by colour, geometric pattern and mid-century modern furniture. And yet Geordi’s home, set high up on the slopes of Orange Kloof in Hout Bay, is refreshingly devoid of design stereotypes. It’s best described as a calm and ultragrounded family retreat, and one gets the feeling that time spent here is necessary for the work that Geordi does. ‘I love the peace and tranquillity our home allows us. My day-to-day work is contextual and exacting, so my home is a happy, comfortable release for me, thanks to an unconscious collection of things that I have been attracted to over the years.’ That instinctive law of attraction is what led Geordi here 11 years ago, when she gave up her city townhouse to live with her now-husband, Anton, a stonemasonry specialist, sculptor and photographer, in the forested outskirts of Hout Bay. ‘Initially I baulked at the idea of leaving the city,’ explains Geordi. ‘But with the magnificent coastal drive we take to get here and the incredible indigenous forest that surrounds our house, it wasn’t long before I realised that my soul actually needed the reprieve.’ The house was initially a simple barn that Anton had built for himself and his two children (Noa, now 22, and Ula, now 20). ‘It was a laborious process that saw us living in a caravan on the site for two years while I built,’ he recalls. ‘When Geordi moved in, it was rustic, with bagged brick walls and a rudimentary stepladder up to the mezzanine.’ Not quite a pad fit for a design diva like Geordi. Unperturbed, she set about making swift and savvy changes, enclosing the mezzanine with glass and timber panelling for privacy, and adding an extra bathroom. ‘We never really had a planned vision for where we wanted to take the house,’ says Geordi. ‘It was more of a slow realisation. We would add on as the need arose, and that made it a gratifying process for our blossoming family.’

First came a small annex to the barn that was a bedroom for Noa and Ula to share. When Geordi and Anton’s daughter, Emilia, arrived nine years ago, they added a nursery off the living area. ‘Finally, three years ago, we bit the bullet and did a big add-on, as we all needed more space. We added another barn structure with a master suite for us and a bedroom for Emilia. We also enlarged Noa and Ula’s bedrooms and added en-suite bathrooms for them, as well as doubling the size of the kitchen.’ Last but not least, a year ago they added a deep roof onto the existing verandah so that they could use it as a proper outdoor living space. They say that the house is now pretty much their shared idea of perfect. ‘We certainly don’t desire anything more,’ continues Geordi. ‘We both prefer more compact living, where well-designed spaces can accommodate multiple functions. I don’t like clutter, either, so I’m constantly editing and recycling things to our beach house in Scarborough and to a newly acquired apartment in Lisbon that I am in the process of decorating.’ Given Geordi’s formidable eye and Anton’s talents, it’s no wonder the house seems to have been created so effortlessly. ‘Initially I tried to jettison him to just the exteriors,’ jokes Geordi. ‘But he has such fantastic taste and proved himself to be essential. He’s such a perfectionist and would insist on getting things right, where I would let them go.’ When asked if moving away from the city to a more bucolic environment has altered her aesthetic, Geordi is quick to respond: ‘Not one bit. I think you can live in a semi-rural environment and decorate in a sophisticated city manner, and vice versa.’ Of course, the experience of the location does lend itself to a more relaxed aesthetic, where you choose rugs that don’t show mud, or upholster in linens that look good slightly crumpled. ‘With the surrounding greenery and bird life, it’s pretty much our private Eden, and the house is an evolutionary response to that.’ Q

MAISON PIERRE FREY WALLPAPER CREATES A PANORAMIC, BACKDROP WITH A FEEL OF THE MEDITERRANEAN OPPOSITE PAGE THE HOME’S APPEAL WAS IMMEDIATELY OBVIOUS TO THE FREYS


hen Pierre Frey and his wife Emilie instantly adored this charming property when they walked through the gate into its romantic garden, with the house covered in climbing roses. They’d been searching for a weekend home not too far from Paris, to be able to take their two children out of town over weekends. They also wanted space for family and friends to come to stay. ‘We love having lots of company,’ says Frey. Big social gatherings are a family tradition dating back to his grandparents’ time. The main house spreads over two levels and 150m2. Wanting to preserve the original soul of the house, Pierre Frey and his wife only refurbished where absolutely necessary: in the kitchen, they installed new, bespoke cupboards and beautiful tiles from Popham Design. The bathroom was next in line for new tiles and a fresh look. Each room has a sense of casual elegance and is furnished with antique pieces and wallpaper, cushions and soft furnishings from Maison Pierre Frey. The living room features the panoramic wallpaper ‘L’Esterel’ from a new collection by Maison Pierre Frey, which gives the appearance of a huge window with view of the Mediterranean. You can almost hear the wind blowing in the pines and the waves from the ocean. The bedroom has been updated with new parquet flooring and the end wall is covered with the fabric ‘Indore’ from sister company Braquenié. The pattern is inspired by a 19th century motif in faded pinks and blues. Living in the cottage is easy, and the very personal home with a beautiful blend of heirlooms, vintage and modern pieces somehow feels like it has always belonged to Pierre Frey and his wife.

MAISON PIERRE FREY

THE STORY The Frey family have their primary home near to Rue du Louvre in the heart of Paris, where Maison Pierre Frey has its headquarters. Founded in 1935 by Pierre Frey’s grandfather, the family company was later passed on to his father, Patrick Frey, with whom Pierre and his two brothers now work. Today the company consists of ďŹ ve brands – Pierre Frey, Boussac, BraqueniĂŠ, Fadini Borghi and Le Manach – which create, edit and manufacture upholstery fabrics. The brands often collaborate with artists and designers, offering a range of wallpapers, textiles, custom-made carpets, rugs and furniture. Pierre, communication director of Maison Pierre Frey, and Emilie, a screenwriter and ďŹ lm director, have two young sons whose enjoyment of the countryside contributed to the decision to ďŹ nd a house that would allow weekend sojourns outside of the city.

ndulge in a decadent alternative to chocolate eggs this Easter season with gorge-worthy home baking – the type to convince even the avowed ‘more of a savoury person’ that they’ll have just one more, please.

CHOCOLATETAHINI LINZER COOKIES MAKES 20–30 (DEPENDING ON SIZE) To make these cookies you’ll need assorted 5cm–7.5cm and 2.5cm–3.5cm cookie cutters. As long as you have one large and one small cookie cutter, these don’t have to be the same shape. Feel free to mix and match diamonds, squares, teardrops or whatever takes your fancy.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 3/4 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder 3/4t baking powder 1t kosher salt, plus a little extra to season chocolate and tahini 1 cup sugar 3/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature 1 large egg 1t vanilla extract White sanding sugar, for sprinkling 1/2 cup white, milk or dark chocolate chips or wafers 2T tahini

Whisk flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and 1t salt in a medium bowl to combine. Beat sugar and butter in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment on mediumhigh speed until light and fluffy (about 4 minutes). Add egg and vanilla and beat to incorporate (about 1 minute). Reduce speed to low and add dry ingredients. 98

Beat just until dough comes together. Divide in two and pat each half into a disk; wrap tightly in plastic. Chill just long enough that dough is rollable and no longer sticky (about 30 minutes). Roll out dough between two sheets of baking paper until about 3cm thick. Slide onto baking sheets, still sandwiched between baking paper, and chill until very firm (about 1 hour). Place racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 180°C. Carefully peel away top sheets of baking paper from dough and punch out cookies with larger cutters. Punch out the centres of half of the cookies with smaller cutters. Carefully transfer whole cookies with a spatula to a baking-paperlined baking sheet, spacing 2.5cm apart. Sprinkle remaining cut-out cookies with sanding sugar, then transfer to another bakingpaper-lined baking sheet. Bake cookies until edges are set (7–10 minutes). Let cool on baking sheets. Repeat process with scraps (chill dough again before punching out shapes). Melt chocolate and tahini in a bowl in a microwave in 20-second bursts, stirring after each, until chocolate is melted (or melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, not letting the bowl touch the water). Stir to combine and season with extra salt. Spread filling over whole cookies and into centres of cut-out cookies. DO AHEAD These cookies can be assembled five days ahead. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

GRAPEFRUIT BARS WITH CANDIED ZEST MAKES ABOUT 16 The twice-cooked curd method was inspired by authors Rose Levy Beranbaum and Melissa Clark and ensures that these bars are extra sturdy and have a smooth, shiny surface. They hold their shape well even when sliced.

SHORTBREAD 1 cup all-purpose flour 3/4 cup icing sugar 2T sugar 3/4t kosher salt 1/2 cup chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces 2 large egg yolks CANDIED GRAPEFRUIT ZEST 1 grapefruit 1/2 cup sugar, divided CURD AND ASSEMBLY 3 large eggs 3 large egg yolks 1 cup sugar 1T cornstarch finely grated zest of 1 grapefruit (about 1T) juice of 1 grapefruit (about 1/4 cup) finely grated zest of 2 lemons (about 2t) juice of 5 lemons (about 3/4 cup) 1t vanilla extract or paste 1/2t kosher salt 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature, cut into 8 pieces icing sugar, to serve (optional) SHORTBREAD Place a rack

in middle of oven; preheat to 180°C. Line a 20×20cm baking pan, preferably metal, with overlapping sheets of baking paper, leaving at least 10cm overhang on each side. Pulse flour, icing sugar, regular sugar and salt in a food processor a few times to combine. Add butter and pulse until largest pieces are pea-size. Add egg yolks and pulse just until dough comes together in small clumps. (Or, by hand, whisk dry

ingredients in a large bowl, then work in the butter with your fingers before mixing in the egg yolks with a sturdy spoon.) Transfer dough to prepared pan (you may find it easier to form the dough into a ball first instead of working with clumps – entirely up to you!) and press into an even layer. If dough is sticky, use a piece of plastic wrap between your hand and the dough. Prick dough with a fork in several spots (this helps it stay flat as it bakes). Bake shortbread until edges and top are golden brown (24–28 minutes). Remove from oven and allow to cool. DO AHEAD Shortbread can be baked three days ahead. Store tightly covered at room temperature. CANDIED GRAPEFRUIT ZEST

While the shortbread is baking, use a sharp knife to remove zest from grapefruit in 5cm–7.5cm wide strips (it’s okay to leave some white pith attached). Slice strips very thinly lengthwise. Combine zest and 2 cups water in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Drain immediately. Combine zest with 1/4 cup sugar and 1 cup water in the same saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until zest is translucent and softened (15–20 minutes). Drain, discarding syrup, and toss zest in a small bowl with remaining 1/4 cup sugar. Set aside until ready to use. DO AHEAD Grapefruit can be candied a week ahead. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. CURD AND ASSEMBLY

Reduce oven temperature to 150°. Vigorously whisk eggs, egg yolks, sugar and cornstarch in a large saucepan until smooth and sugar is


GRAPEFRUIT BARS WITH CANDIED ZEST


mostly dissolved. Whisk in grapefruit zest and juice, lemon zest and juice, and vanilla. Set saucepan over medium heat and cook, whisking constantly and getting into the corners of the pan, until curd begins to bubble slightly around the edges and thickens (about 5 minutes). Simmer very gently, still whisking, for 30 seconds, then remove from heat. Whisk salt into curd, followed by butter a piece at a time, whisking to fully incorporate after each addition. Scrape curd into pan with shortbread and smooth over crust. Top with some of the candied grapefruit zest (you probably won’t need all of it; snack on any left over!). Bake grapefruit bars until surface

of curd is set (the centre will still wobble slightly when pan is gently shaken) – 20–25 minutes. Transfer baking pan to the refrigerator and chill for a few hours, or preferably overnight. Just before serving, slice grapefruit bars into 5cm squares and dust with icing sugar if desired. DO AHEAD Bars can be baked three days ahead. Cover and keep chilled.

DOUBLE PECAN THUMBPRINTS MAKES ABOUT 26 Dusting these tender pecanand-butter-packed cookies in icing sugar before baking them creates a crackly, glossy coating. Feel free to add more afterward as well.

DOUBLE PECAN THUMBPRINTS

FRANGIPANE 2 cups pecan halves 1/3 cup sugar 1 large egg white 2T unsalted butter at room temperature 2t espresso powder 1/2t kosher salt 1/4t almond extract DOUGH AND ASSEMBLY 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1t kosher salt 1/2t baking powder 3/4 cup unsalted butter at room temperature 1/4 cup sugar 3/4 cup icing sugar, divided; plus more for serving (optional) 1 large egg yolk 1t vanilla extract or paste FRANGIPANE Preheat oven

to 180°C. Lightly toast pecans on a baking sheet, tossing halfway through, until slightly darkened and fragrant (6–8 minutes). Allow to cool. Set 1 1/4 cups pecans aside for the dough. Pulse sugar and remaining 3/4 cup pecans in a food processor until nuts are very finely ground but before they become a paste (30–60 seconds). Add egg white and pulse to blend, then add butter, espresso powder, salt and almond extract. Pulse until mixture is smooth and combined. Scrape frangipane into a bowl and chill at least 30 minutes before using. DO AHEAD Frangipane can be made three days ahead. Cover and keep chilled. You’ll have more than you need, but try slathering leftovers on toasted brioche and baking until lightly browned (sort of like an almond croissant). You won’t be upset about it. DOUGH AND ASSEMBLY

Pulse flour, salt, baking powder and 1 cup reserved pecans in clean food processor until nuts are finely ground (about 1 minute).

Beat butter, sugar and 1/4 cup icing sugar in a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment on mediumhigh speed until light and fluffy (about 4 minutes). Add egg yolk and vanilla and beat until combined and no streaks remain. Reduce speed to low and add dry ingredients. Beat just until incorporated (about 1 minute). Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill dough until it’s firm enough that you can scoop it and it will hold its shape (30–45 minutes). Place racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 180°C. Place 1/2 cup icing sugar in a shallow bowl. Working in batches, scoop out tablespoonfuls of dough and roll into balls between your hands, then roll in icing sugar, knocking off any excess. Transfer to 2 baking-paperlined baking sheets as you work, spacing 5cm apart. Bake cookies until puffed but edges are still soft (6–8 minutes). Carefully remove from oven and make an indent in the centre of each cookie with the handle end of a wooden spoon or a similar heatproof object. Spoon a heaping 1/2-teaspoonful of frangipane into each and top with a pecan half from remaining reserved 1/4 cup. Return cookies to oven and continue to bake until edges are set and very lightly browned (6–8 minutes longer). Allow to cool on baking sheets. Just before serving, dust cookies with more icing sugar if desired. DO AHEAD Cookies can be baked five days ahead. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.


RASPBERRY RUGELACH

RASPBERRY RUGELACH MAKES 18–22 Adding orange zest and salt to jam gives the filling an extra dimension of flavour without creating extra fuss. You’ll need a spice mill or mortar and pestle for the berry sugar.

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting 1/4t baking powder 1/2 cup sugar, divided 2t kosher salt, divided 1 cup chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces 230g cream cheese, at room temperature Zest of 1 orange 1 1/2 cups finely chopped walnuts 1 cup raspberry or any other flavour jam or marmalade 1/2 cup freeze-dried raspberries or strawberries 1 large egg, beaten

Mix flour, baking powder, 1/4 cup sugar and 1t salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment on low speed to combine. Add butter and beat until it is flattened into pieces the size and shape of 5c and 10c coins, and dry ingredients look a bit like sand (about 2 minutes). Add all of the cream cheese, in large scoops, directly into the mixer. Beat until dough starts to clump together in pieces (but not so long that it forms one large mass) with pieces of butter and some cream cheese still visible (about 1 minute longer). Turn out dough onto a work surface and divide. Pat each half into a disk and wrap tightly in plastic. Chill just until firm (30–45 minutes). Meanwhile, mix together orange zest, nuts, jam and remaining 1 tsp. salt in a medium bowl. Set filling aside. Roll out dough between two lightly floured sheets of baking paper, 102

dusting with more flour and turning over and rotating as needed, into ovals less than half a centimetre thick and about 45×30cm in area. Spread half of filling over each oval, leaving a 1.5cm border. Rotate dough so a long side is closest to you and roll up into a tight spiral, using baking paper to help you lift it as you go. If dough is sticking, chill 5 minutes before proceeding. Chill rolled-up dough until firm (at least 60 minutes and up to 1 day, wrapped in plastic). Place racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 190°C. Finely grind raspberries in spice mill or with mortar and pestle. Transfer to a small bowl. Mix in remaining 1/4 cup sugar.

Brush tops of dough with egg. Sprinkle with half of berry sugar and cut into wedges 5cm wide at the base and just wider than 1cm at the point. Make each cut on a diagonal, changing direction each time so that short and wide ends alternate. Divide rugelach between two bakingpaper-lined baking sheets. Bake, rotating baking sheets top to bottom and front to back halfway through, until deep golden brown (28–34 minutes). Allow to cool on baking sheets, sprinkling with remaining berry sugar while still warm. DO AHEAD Rugelach can be baked five days ahead. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

COOKIES ON THE GO

Planning to give cookies as a gift, or send them to a sweet-toothed recipient? Here’s what to have on hand: Ziptop or cellophane bags They separate soft cookies from crispy ones and serve as a protective layer between the biscuits and the box they’re nestled in. Sturdy boxes Choose ones with plastic windows so you can show off your handiwork. Packing material Newspaper or bubble wrap will ensure a tin doesn’t scoot around in its package. Tape and ribbon Use ribbon to seal bags, clear tape to secure cardboard boxes, and patterned washi tape to decorate metal tins. Q

More than anything, these accessories are the ideal opportunity to have fun, and bring life to the living room.
