On-Trend Home Designs for 2022 14

A

home design that blends multiple elements seamlessly can be both inviting and visually interesting. If you’re planning to upgrade your living space in 2022, consider incorporating materials like stone and brick, which bring color, texture and functionality while complementing some of this year’s leading design trends.

Settling on a design aesthetic is the first step for most renovation projects, but it can be a challenge for many homeowners. If you’re in need of inspiration for a project on the horizon, consider these 2022 trends from the design experts at Glen-Gery:

Warm Colors Look for a shift toward warmer colors like beige, tan, caramel, cocoa and even black. Designers are moving from cool grays to a warmer coffee-inspired palette. The use of warmer colors on structural elements of a home, like brick, stone, siding, doors and shutters, offer visual warmth while making a statement.

Textures and Patterns Textures and patterns are popping up in many on-trend designs. Texture can enhance the overall feeling of a space by offering depth and complexity that draws a visitor into the room. The use of texture in a design element, like stone or brick, can provide visual interest and engage the mind with a tactile response that encourages interaction with the environment.

Outdoor Inspiration Nature is inspiring an array of design elements this year. You may see this trend emerging through increased use of glass for light and views of nature, as well as continued focus on the versatile and transitional indoor-outdoor spaces that gained momentum during the height of the pandemic. Approaches may vary depending on the homeowner’s style and climate, but examples include larger patios in brick and stone, as well as more functional private patios and porches. Another aspect of this trend is the tendency for homeowners to integrate indoor conveniences such as kitchens, fireplaces, furniture and electronics into their outdoor spaces.

Clean Lines This season, designers are creating inviting, comfortable and serene spaces with modern vibes through the use of clean lines in design, materials and furnishings. One trick is integrating elements that transfer light or give an illusion of illumination from a higher sheen, such as glass brick. The play of light and shadows simultaneously blends inspiration from nature with sleek lines and dramatic focal points to evoke a sense of balanced calm and strength. This approach can also come to life through ceiling windows, furnishings and the use of stone, brick and wood on statement walls or accents.

Bringing On-Trend Design into Your Home Brick is a versatile design material that fits virtually any trending design. From handmade to glazed bricks and nearly everything in between, you can find building products in a diverse array of colors, textures and sizes to emphasize focal points and capture your target design aesthetic. Brick carries a sense of tradition, character and timelessness while also serving as a popular choice for homeowners due to its design flexibility. With benchmark qualities such as low maintenance, resilience, durability, sustainability and beauty, brick can help homeowners balance function with appearance. When looking for brick, consider a quality and reputable option like Glen-Gery, which offers an extensive line of more than 600 brick and stone products that provide nearly endless design possibilities and timeless beauty. The brickmaker’s collections feature an assortment of both traditional and modern products to unique international items sourced from around the globe that evoke beauty, elegance and creativity. Get your design planning underway with a virtual design tool like Picture Perfect that helps you visualize projects for your home while experimenting with different building products to achieve the perfect look.

A Momentous Year For Rolls-Royce Bespoke In 2021, the House of Rolls-Royce has fulfilled whimsical and wonderful client commissions, resulting in undeniable advancements of Bespoke manufacturing. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has explored, developed, and presented new and ambitious interpretations of true luxury, resulting in some of the finest examples of contemporary craftsmanship ever seen.

of the car; to the unknowing eye the unique design cues are simply aesthetic, a sum of elements that add up to create a dynamic façade. However, to the curious mind of a Rolls-Royce client, there lies a code that must be solved and with it, a one-of-a-kind prize to be claimed.

In a year that has seen significant announcements from the marque pre-empting the arrival of its first fully-electric motor car, Spectre, in 2023, and the launch of Ghost’s alter-ego, Black Badge GhostRolls Royce continues to shape the future of luxury.

Rolls-Royce and Kengo Kuma bridged the worlds of luxury and architecture with the unveiling of a first-of-its-kind Bespoke Rolls-Royce Dawn. The singular motor car debuted as a moving representation of the new luxury residence ‘The Kita’ in central Tokyo, designed by Kengo Kuma and commissioned by global luxury property developer Westbank.

What follows are some of the finest examples of Bespoke craftsmanship, design and engineering, completed by the LuxuryHouse during 2021.

Wraith Kryptos 2021 saw the final Wraith Kryptos Collection cars delivered to their owners around the world, fueling the web of intrigue ignited in 2020 as the mysterious Collection was unveiled. The Collection conceals hidden cyphers, embedded in the design language 18

Kengo Kuma Dawn

Ghost Extended Urban Sanctuary Following a highly successful introduction to market, Ghost Extended has embarked on its Bespoke journey. Further exploring its Post Opulent design philosophy, which celebrates material substance, not overt statement, Urban Sanctuary debuts an elevated expression of Parquetry. Recalling the ‘cracked ice’ effect of the wooden window shutters on a pavilion building within Shanghai’s storied Yu Yuan

Gardens, this geometric mosaic of wood pieces is finished in un-lacquered open-pore Obsidian Ayous veneer. The ‘cracked ice’ theme is also referenced by way of Bespoke embroidered panels in the seat inserts.

Dream Ghost Ghost Extended became the canvas for the first ever personalized Illuminated Fascia as part of a very special commission for South Florida luxury collector, David Bartosiak. He made a personal request of the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective, asking to adapt the Illuminated Fascia to say ‘DREAM’ rather than ‘GHOST’. He noted, “This wish speaks of the dream I had as a young boy, born under that beautiful night sky in 1983 in Vero Beach, Florida, the dream I instil in those around me every day, and the dream I hope my spirit carries on to the world when I’m gone.”

Bespoke Wraith in Pebble Paradiso A Shanghai based client commissioned a unique Bespoke Wraith in Pebble Paradiso blue – her very own ‘Shanghai seaside inspired paradise’. A hand-painted coachline in a Seashell hue features a delicate orchid motif, symbolizing her passion for elegance. www.HighRiseLife.com


Inside, an artwork featuring a baby girl’s footprints is depicted on the Piano White monitor lid, a tribute to the client’s long sought-after bundle of joy. The two-tone interior features Charles Blue and Seashell in natural grain leather.

Cullinan 50th A spectacular, one-of-a-kind Cullinan was created to mark the UAE’s historic Golden Jubilee in 2021. The exterior, finished in Crystal over Arctic White, was adorned with a hand painted double coachline – the upper line in Hotspur Red, the lower Fame Green. The effect was completed with a Gold Bullion Coachline Motif, the national flag rendered in Hotspur Red, Fame Green and Black on the C-Pillar Motif, and a double wheel-centre pinstripe to represent the National Flag of the UAE.

Cullinan In Pikes Peak Blue Ben and Christine Sloss, car enthusiasts and endurance racers, commissioned a Bespoke Rolls-Royce Black Badge Cullinan from Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Los Gatos. Finished in a unique Bespoke color way, Pikes Peak Blue, the hue pays homage to the legendary Colorado hill-climb, one of the customer’s favorite events. Combined with the vivid flashes of Forge Yellow on the hand-painted coachline, wheel-centre pinstripes and brake callipers, the Black Badge Cullinan carries the colors of the flag of Modena and the livery featured on the couple’s racing cars. An additional tribute to the Sloss’ love of racing adorns the doors of the couple’s Black Badge Cullinan, each door panel is embroidered with Mrs. Sloss’ personal racing logo – a stylized stiletto.

Phantom Oribe A unique collaboration saw the House of Rolls-Royce and the House of Hermès co-create a Bespoke Phantom for Japanese entrepreneur Yusaku Maezawa. Named Phantom Oribe, the motor car features a Bespoke two-tone exterior finish, inspired by the client’s world-class collection of ancient Japanese ceramics, Oribe ware. In an unusual move, the Rolls-Royce paint was made available for use on the client’s private jet that the Phantom is paired with. Phantom Oribe’s Gallery, a feature unique to Rolls-Royce that runs the length of the motor car’s fascia, features an artwork based on a design by the celebrated French artist and illustrator Pierre Péron(1905–1988), who created many of Hermès’ iconic scarves.

December/January 2021-22

Phantom Tempus Collection Rolls-Royce Phantom became the subject of an exclusive and rare commission with the Phantom Tempus Collection. Strictly limited to just 20 examples, this iteration of Phantom is inspired by the concept of time – how it passes, and how it can be made seemingly to stand still.

Phantom Koa Phantom Koa is the first Rolls-Royce Phantom to incorporate Koa wood, a rare species of tree that grows only on Hawaiian soil. The inspiration came from car enthusiast, Jack Boyd Smith, Jr. and his wife Laura, who came to appreciate the warmth and character of Koa having spent significant amounts of time in Maui, Hawaii. The unique Koa tree grows only in Hawaii and is protected in State and National parks. It can only be harvested from private agricultural land; to find suitable raw material is truly rare. A Rolls-Royce Wood Specialist described the find as a ‘one in a million chance’.

Landspeed Collection The Rolls-Royce Landspeed Collection, strictly limited to just 25 examples of Black Badge Dawn and 35 of Black Badge Wraith,draws inspiration from George Eyston’s remarkable life and record-breaking feats. It also has strong aesthetic links to the unique, otherworldly landscape of the Bonneville Salt Flats where Thunderbolt made him, albeit briefly, the fastest man on Earth. During his lifetime, George Eyston received three significant

honors. He was awarded the Military Cross, the Chevalier of the Légion d’honneur and the Order of the British Empire (OBE).

Cullinan ‘Black And Bright’ Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Moscow presented Black Badge Cullinan ‘Black and Bright’, inspired by the ambience of Moscow at night. Following the success of the Black Badge Wraith ‘Black and Bright’ two years ago, the 2021 iteration was designed in the same spirit, but with even more confidence. Rolls-Royce Coachbuild: Boat Tail The creation of three Boat Tails heralds a significant future for the modern coachbuilding movement, with Rolls-Royce confirming Coachbuilding as a permanent fixture in its future portfolio.

2021 Homebuying Frenzy Concludes with Double-Digit Price Growth December listing prices accelerated 10.0% year-over-year nationally and at an even faster pace in more than one-quarter of large metros, led by Las Vegas (+32.4%) and Austin (+28.8%)

More than one-quarter (13) of large markets posted double-digit yearly home price gains, up by more than 20% in Las Vegas, Austin, Tampa and Orlando.

Colder weather may be settling in, but new housing data suggests the winter market is heating up, as looming mortgage rate hikes motivate more buyers to search for a home despite limited options. U.S. listing price growth renewed its momentum in December, with the annual pace returning to the double-digit territory seen throughout the past year’s ultra-competitive spring and summer seasons, according to the Realtor.com Monthly Housing Report released today.

Still-eager buyers drive home sales at breakneck speed for the 10th straight month

“December data offers a fitting finish to the frenzy of the past year. Annual listing price growth hit double-digits again nationwide and in many of the hottest markets, after four months of single-digit pace this fall,” said Realtor.com Chief Economist Danielle Hale. “Despite buyer challenges like rising prices, limited inventory and fast-paced sales, real estate activity maintained a brisk pace throughout 2021 as factors like low mortgage rates enabled home shoppers to persist. With rate hikes now on the horizon, buyers may be trying to get ahead of higher monthly housing costs, in turn driving up competition and prices. Our 2022 Forecast anticipates affordability challenges this year, but also that trends like rising incomes and workplace flexibility could offer some Americans a better shot at finding a home. For those who weren’t successful in 2021, we expect better luck in the coming months as more sellers plan to enter the market – and if December’s listings are an indication, with high asking prices in mind.

Seller’s market gains fresh momentum as annual home price growth hits double-digits The mismatch between demand and the limited for-sale home supply continues to be a major factor in rising home prices. Buyers remained active throughout 2021 despite months of yearly inventory declines, while home price growth moderated through November. December’s larger advance in the typical home asking price may be partly driven by increased competition as home shoppers attempt to get ahead of projected mortgage rate increases. Realtor.com forecasts rising affordability challenges in 2022 with December data showing an even bigger price gain for a typical 2,000 square-foot single family home. The U.S. median home listing price reached $375,000 in December as the annual growth pace (+10.0%) accelerated over last month (+8.6%) and further over 2019 levels (+25.0%). Home prices of a typical 2,000 square foot single-family home increased at an even faster pace, up 18.6% year-over-year. In further evidence of the still-hot market, yearly growth in the share of sellers making price adjustments1 slipped in December (+0.1%) from earlier improvements. Relative to the national rate, the annual pace of home price growth was lower in the 50 largest metros (+5.4%), on average, but varied significantly across the country. The southern (+10.1%) and western (+8.3%) regions posted the biggest annual gains, while December prices were flat in the northeast (+0.7%) and declined in the Midwest (-2.8%). December/January 2021-22

Time on market remains historically low so far this winter, despite typical seasonal cooling giving home shoppers a few more days to make decisions than in the spring and summer. As buyer activity continued to outmatch limited inventory in December, the typical U.S. home hit a 10-month streak of selling faster than in any month before 2021 – building on the trend reported in October. Additionally, homes sold more quickly than last year in all but two of the 50 largest U.S. metros in December. Nationally, homes sold in a median of 54 days in December, moderating over the previous month (+7 days) in line with seasonal norms. However, the gap in time on market continued to widen over December of both 2020 (-11 days) and 2019 (-26 days). Compared to national pace, time on market was lower in the 50 largest U.S. metros, at an average of 48 days in December, but posted a smaller yearly decline (-7 days). The south (-9 days) saw December’s fastest home sales relative to 2020, among both the four primary U.S. regions and the 50 largest metros, led by Miami (-31 days), Orlando (-19 days) and Raleigh (-18 days). Even in the market where time on market increased over last year –Hartford (+5 days) homes still sold more quickly than in December 2016-2020. In the Washington, D.C. area homes sold equally as fast as in December 2020.

Inventory falls short as buyer activity continues to outpace sellers entering the market With buyers still quickly snatching up active listings and fewer new sellers entering the market, the inventory gap from last year continues to widen. December marked the third straight month of bigger annual declines in the U.S. supply of active listings, in a further setback from improvements seen over the summer and fall. Some relief may be on the horizon, with inventory expected to begin recovering from 2021’s steep declines in 2022, and buyers in certain markets could see their persistence pay off sooner. In fact, December data shows more new sellers entered the market than last year in one-in-five of the 50 largest U.S. metros. In December, the U.S. inventory of active listings declined 26.8% year-over-year, representing 177,000 fewer for-sale homes. The western region 32.1% saw the country’s widest gap in the supply of listings compared to 2020. For the fourth consecutive month, fewer new sellers entered the national market than in 2020 (-6.1%). With homeowners staying put while buyers remain active, newly listed homes continue to lag typical 2017-2019 levels (-12.9%). New listings declined across the four primary U.S. regions in December, with the biggest drop registered in the west (-13.1%). However, new seller activity picked-up in 10 of the largest metros, led by Memphis (+22.0%), Pittsburgh (+10.9%) and Philadelphia (+10.8%). 27

Pelagos at Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens Wins First Michelin Star Chef Luca Piscazzi and his team achieve the coveted status for the rule-breaking restaurant focused on fish and seafood just six months after its opening Just six months after Chef Luca Piscazzi welcomed his first guests at newly-opened Pelagos, located within Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens in Greece’s capital, the cutting-edge Mediterranean fine dining restaurant has earned its first Michelin star in Michelin Guide Greece 2021. The Rome-born chef knew he wanted to become a chef ever since he would help out his grandmother in the kitchen at a tender age. At 19, he 28

completed his culinary studies and swiftly packed his bags for London. While he may not have known it at the time, a Michelin star was always in the cards for Piscazzi. He went on to work in restaurants with the coveted status, from Rome to Hong Kong to Beijing to London. In the UK capital, he served as head chef to ground-breaking French Chef Anne-Sophie Pic at her restaurant La Dame de Pic London. Located within Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square, it achieved two Michelin stars during Piscazzi’s tenure. www.HighRiseLife.com


“After being at the helm of La Dame de Pic London for four years, I felt a strong urge to bring my own cuisine and identity to the table,” Piscazzi says. “When I discussed my aspirations with Four Seasons, the company offered me the opportunity to do just that, namely at Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens, and I enthusiastically accepted their offer.” Piscazzi started shaping his inventive concept for the launch of Pelagos in April 2020, during

Greece’s first COVID-19 lockdown. “I am laser-focused on innovatively and sustainably showcasing seasonal local produce from the land and, particularly, the sea that surrounds us. I’m not interested in applying techniques simply to wow people. For me, the most important element of a dish is its flavor,” he says. On May 13, 2021, the Pelagos team proudly hosted its first guests, introducing its unique brand of unconventional Mediterranean gastronomy combined with the refined yet relaxed service for which Four Seasons is known. “Four Seasons has provided me with tremendous support over the past year in this journey, which has brought such brilliant results,” Piscazzi says. “Pelagos’ relaunch has proven to be my greatest passion project so far, a project where I have brought together years of experience in delivering memorable dining experiences.” Piscazzi underlines the fact that the Michelin star was the result of deep dedication and focus on the part of Pelagos’ kitchen team and service team led by restaurant manager Cedric Vinckier. “Here at Pelagos, we seek to contribute to Greece’s evolution as a world-class dining destination with the highest standards of service. For us now, the sky’s the limit,” Piscazzi says.

Lead With Care Health and safety remain the first priority at Four Seasons. To offer a safe environment for guests and employees, Four Seasons properties across the globe are implementing Lead With Care, a full-scale health and safety enhancement designed in collaboration with leading experts. As Four Seasons Astir Palace Athens welcomes guests back, the entire team is committed to ensuring the highest standards of health and hygiene, without compromising the quality of the guest experience. Pelagos is open Tuesday to Saturday from 7:00 to 10:00 pm. For reservations, email diningreservations.athens@fourseasons.com. December/January 2021-22

Winter Wonderland No Skis Required

Featuring slope-side access to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole has long been known as a premier ski destination. But skiing is just one part of what makes winter magical in Jackson Hole. Chef Concierge Taryn Shackleton shares her top 10 tips below for non-skiing pursuits to plan this season:

Take a Snow Coach to Yellowstone

See the sites on a guided snowmobile tour during a half-day excursion or a full, three-day adventure. Traveling with younger children? Snow-coach tours are great for families and take you through Yellowstone in heated comfort.

38

Go on a Snowmobile Tour Watch wildlife on a trip into the Gros Ventre Mountains, ride powder stashes up at the Continental Divide, or snowmobile to Granite Hot Springs and take a dip in their hot spring pool. These guided tours include all necessary gear (helmets, snowsuits, boots and gloves).

Enjoy a Peaceful Horse-Drawn Sleigh Ride Don’t forget your camera as this hour-long ride takes you face-to-face with the animals of the National Elk Refuge. Venture across the Refuge to the sounds of snow crunching beneath the horses’ feet, encountering sights that can only be found in this unique setting. www.HighRiseLife.com


Explore the Winter Wonderland by Snowshoe Snowshoeing tours are offered with Hole Hiking Experience. Our concierge team also can arrange a group or private tour. Hole Hiking provides complimentary snowshoe equipment. Guided or unguided trips are available.

Embark on a Wildlife Safari Scout for native roaming animals of the area including elk, moose and big horn sheep from the comfort of one of the Resort’s luxury SUVs. This four-hour excursion is available for both sunrise and sunset, and is great for all ages.

Discover Snow-Covered Terrain Via Dog Sled Learn how to mush your own team of dogs or just come along for the ride, exploring the snow-covered terrain along the Continental Divide. Dog-sled tours offer an unforgettable outdoor adventure, taking full advantage of Jackson Hole’s pristine scenery.

Slide on an Inner Tube Not far from our Resort, Snow King Resort’s Tubing Park offers a fun alternative to skiing. Guests can

enjoy the spectacular scenery while riding the tow lift to the top of the hill, then take hold of the inner tube for a thrilling ride down the park’s groomed trails.

Indulge at the Spa What better way to combat the local elements after a day of alpine adventure than a visit to The Spa? Our full-service Spa offers an array of treatments, many using locally sourced ingredients, such as the new Wildcrafted Facial.

Take a Dip in the Heated Outdoor Pool We recommend taking a dip as the alpine glow sets in just before dusk. Rejuvenate tired muscles in any of our three outdoor heated spa tubs while towels and robes are kept warm in heater boxes.

Give It Your Best Shot Shoot pistols, rifles and semi-automatic firearms at still or moving targets with a trained professional in this three-hour experience. Our concierge team also can arrange custom options.

Rosewood São Paulo

Encapsulating the city’s storied past and innovative future, the landmark hotel marks a São Paulo renaissance 40

osewood São Paulo opens its doors, heralding Rosewood Hotels & Resorts entrance into South America. Located in the heart of the city, Rosewood São Paulo is a metropolitan oasis set within the historical enclave of Cidade Matarazzo, a complex of elegantly preserved buildings from the early 20th century that have been transformed into a cultural destination. Anchoring the 30,000 square-meter mixed-used lifestyle hub, Rosewood São Paulo occupies the historic hospital, Matarazzo Maternity, as well as a striking new vertical garden tower. The transformation of the heritage buildings is rooted in sustainability and focused on protecting the country’s cultural heritage and natural environment. Spearheaded by entrepreneur Alexandre Allard and designed by Pritzker Prize winning architect Jean Nouvel and artistic director Philippe Starck, Rosewood São Paulo is a love letter to Brazil, with majority of the design materials both locally sourced and inspired by the country’s diverse culture. The hotel is also home to a collection of 450 site-specific artworks, all created in partnership with local artists whose work draws from the multiplicity of the Brazilian experience. Featuring 160 guestrooms and suites along with 100 Private Rosewood Suites available for purchase, the hotel’s accommodations are spread across the restored Matarazzo Maternity and the vertical garden tower. Rosewood São Paulo has instilled new life into Matarazzo Maternity, which holds sentimental meaning to the city as more than 500,000 Brazilians were born there. Rosewood São Paulo is also home to the Chapel of Santa Luzia, another historic building that has been carefully restored to retain its 1922 architecture. The rebirth of Chapel of Santa Luzia comes timed to its 100-year anniversary and will continue to be used for weddings and other celebrations of life.

Art, Architecture & Design In line with Rosewood’s guiding A Sense of Place® philosophy, wherein the ethos of the destination is woven into the identity of the hotel, Rosewood São Paulo’s design was inspired by its deep Brazilian roots. Under the artistic direction of Starck, 57 Brazilian artists produced a permanent collection of art featuring over 450 works. The team commissioned artists representing a wide range of artist expression, from street art to indigenous December/January 2021-22

art, to create site-specific works for virtually every space in the property. The artists were given one guideline: creativity that respects the past yet points to the future. The result is that the hotel is in effect Brazil’s next great contemporary art museum, one that celebrates the natural beauty, rich history, and diverse culture of its homeland. Throughout the property, art tells different stories of life in Brazil across various mediums including sculpture, paintings, tile work, drawings, textiles and rugs. The entirety of the collection will be cataloged and detailed in a book available for guests and visitors both in rooms and public spaces. Standout works include hand-painted titles inspired by different flora and fauna of Brazil, created by Brazilian contemporary artist Sandra Cinto, that line the rooftop pool and bar area; a powerful graffiti-inspired painting encapsulating one of the maternity building’s corridors created by São Paulo’s beloved street artist Caligrapixo; and the work of up-and-coming artist Virgilio Neto, who created a series of drawings on the rooftop foyer depicting imagined stories of the life of the beloved historical figure Count Matarazzo. Within the Chapel, Vik Muniz, one of Brazil’s most internationally acclaimed artists, created new glass rosettes inspired by Santa Luzia.

A Focus on Sustainability Rosewood São Paulo is committed to preserving Brazil’s natural environment with sustainability as one of the development’s guiding principles. Cidade Matarazzo is one of greenest developments in Brazil and the country’s largest upcycling project, with the project constructed of 100% locally sourced and upcycled materials. Sustainable features executed in the property’s design include a biodiversity program that repopulates the indigenous flora and fauna from the Mata Atlantica rainforest, including 250 trees up to 14 meters in height placed vertically on the Mata Atlantica Tower. The property has committed to use 100% renewable energy within a year, including on-site solar panels and renewable-sourced energy.

São Paulo’s Newest Dining Destination Rosewood São Paulo brings six dining venues to one of the city’s most vibrant neighborhood. The elegant Le Jardin is a cozy space bathed in natural light, serving modern cuisine 24 hours a day. Blaise is a casual brasserie serving a delicious mix

of French cuisine influenced by elements of Brazilian gastronomy. The restaurant features hand-painted ceramic tiles by Fernando de La Rocque that resemble Portuguese tiles but if observed closer, hidden in the composition is a woman giving birth, a nod to its location in the maternity building. Taraz, highlights South American cuisine and its share-style menu has been designed by acclaimed Chef Felipe Bronze to showcase the art of wood-fired cooking. The restaurant has been decorated in a more traditional and rustic style, and through its name gives homage to the beloved Brazilian historical figure Count Matarazzo. Rabo di Galo a jazz bar inspired by the classic clubs of the 1930s, featuring leather furniture, dark woods and indirect lighting to create an intimate atmosphere. Artist Rodrigo de Azevedo Saad spent 68 hours hand drawling on the ceiling, which portrays a schizophrenic art. Inspired by the natural beauty of the crystal-clear pools in Brazil’s Bonito municipality, The Emerald Garden Pool & Bar is set amidst tropical greenery offering family-friendly fare. The interior of the pool emulates the emerald shades of the natural pools found in Brazil’s Bonito region and is made of small pieces of tile in 40 different shades of green and blue. The restaurant’s coasters and menus were designed by illustrator Walmor Correa, famous for his sketches of imaginary creatures. The pool area is also home to Belavista Rooftop Pool & Bar, an exclusive adults-only space with panoramic views of the city. The entire roof and pool area features wood that is all from Tora Brasil and that has been certified by Brazil’s Forest Stewardship Council as part of the property’s commitment to sustainable development.

World- Class Amenities Extensive amenities include two pools, a cinema, a music studio, ample event space and an Asaya, Rosewood’s integrative wellbeing concept. Slated to open in 2022, Asaya at Rosewood São Paulo will bring the destination a unique wellness concept that delivers innovative and integrative solutions for personal transformation while encouraging growth and self-discovery for a fulfilling life. The opening of Asaya at Rosewood São Paulo will mark the first outpost of Rosewood’s forwardthinking wellbeing concept in the western hemisphere. The hotel will roll out further facilities and amenities over the course of its first year. Rosewood São Paulo is currently accepting reservations.

Mr. C Miami - Coconut Grove A Hotel by Cipriani 42

Mr. C Miami - Coconut Grove is the latest premier luxury boutique hotel conceived by Ignazio and Maggio Cipriani, a fourth-generation hotelier family. Giuseppe Cipriani opened Harry’s Bar off of a tiny street off Venice’s Piazza San Marco in 1931. Today, almost 90 years later, brothers Ignazio and Maggio Cipriani have drawn on their rich family history to create the luxury hospitality and residential brand known as Mr. C. Cipriani is internationally renowned for its restaurants, hotels, and residences with locations in metropolitan destinations including Beverly Hills and Manhattan, and now Miami.

“We are extremely excited to be part of the revitalization of such a wonderful neighborhood known for its iconic history. With the opening of our first hotel in Florida, we could not be more pleased to have partnered with such valued and respected entities that truly embrace the community they serve.” - Ignazio and Maggio Cipriani The award-winning architecture firm, Arquitectonica, conceived the exterior design modeled after the pier-like Stiltsville structures located off the Florida Cape. The property has gold-level LEED certification for environmental sustainability as well as green energy-efficient lighting. AD100 interior designer, Martin Brudnizki, designed the 100-room, 6-story boutique property overlooking Biscayne Bay. The nautical look of the resort, as shown by its azure and white-colored terrazzo floors and glossy wood paneling, is influenced both by coastal Italian culture, and the sleek interior of a yacht or cruise ship. ‘We wanted to capture the timeless charm of Italy’s iconic coastal style, with high gloss timber paneling, chrome or lacquer detailing, and comfortable curves in the furniture. We’ve then added a layer of mid-century Italy, as Murano glass chandeliers hang above large-scale terrazzo floors. The combination of the shapes and materiality of the mid-century yacht-style works perfectly with Miami,

How the New Year can Help with Marketing Your Business Written by Jennifer Gonzales

This year has been an unforeseen type of year. A lot of businesses have taken a hit due to Covid rules and regulations.

Here are some marketing tips on how you can take advantage of the New Year to boost your sales in your business.

Send a New Year’s Email Whether you have a hundred clients or fifty, this is your clientele. These are still people who have bought or is buying from you. Make them feel important, send a Happy New Year’s Email, not necessarily offering them a discount or selling to them but simply just wishing them the best for the New Year. Best tip yet, send the emails before the New Year, your chances are higher of being noticed than sending on New Year’s Day.

Utilizing Social Media Platforms Social media is not only popular but almost mandatory to have to be successful. This is how you get noticed with your business. It is the way that people discover their needs, whether it’s Real Estate, Financial Consultants, Marketing Team, etc. Social media helps connect everyone together. You can take advantage of the New Year by marketing your brand.

Promote Contests It is important that you are promoting engaging content. People don’t want to just read your posts but also want to feel involved in your posts. You can create a fun contest such as post an inspiring quote and tag your business for a chance to win something. You can also generate your own hashtag that reflects your company and use that as well. If you do decide to do something like this, create a deadline and be consistent with acknowledging those who participate.

Marketing Campaigns As a business owner it is crucial that you have great marketing tools when promoting your business. You can create posts to promote your business and posts that offer promotion codes. Try and implement your business logo in all your posts that way if they get shared others will see and it will help your business with exposure.

New Year’s Special It’s okay to offer a good discount for the New Year, but it is best recommended to try and offer something that is different than what you normally offer on New Year’s Day only. Then try something slightly different for the rest of the week. That way those who missed New Year’s Day deal can still take advantage of something throughout the week. Every New year gives you new opportunities to market your business and to do something different than the year before. Whatever may have not worked before, may work now, but with a different approach. 47

Don’t Let Winter Wage War on

Your Skin When temperatures cool and you start layering on more clothes, you may think your skin is better protected since it’s less exposed to the elements. However, that’s not always the case. Cold, dry winter air can take quite a toll on your skin. Your skin naturally produces oils that help keep skin supple and soft, but you may need a helping hand if you notice signs of dry skin like redness, itching or irritation. Serious symptoms include flakes and cracks, which can be painful and lead to infection, so it’s important to address any problems before they progress that far with simple tips like these. Drink plenty of fluids. Even when it’s cooler outdoors and you may be sweating less, you can still get dehydrated. Drinking plenty of water helps keep your whole body hydrated so your skin isn’t pulling from limited resources. Treat problem spots. Hands, elbows and especially feet are common danger zones when it comes to dry skin. To eliminate layers of dry skin on feet, try an option like the Amope Pedi Perfect Electronic Foot File, which smooths hard skin effortlessly using micro-abrasive particles made with finely ground diamond crystals. Be smart about the sun. The sun’s rays may not feel as hot on your skin, but that doesn’t mean they’re not causing damage. Always use sunscreen when you’ll be outdoors for extended periods of time. Also remember snow acts like water and can reflect the sun’s rays back on your skin, which may cause burns. Dress with care. When selecting your wardrobe, be conscious of how long your skin will be exposed and do your best to cover it, especially if it’s cold or windy. Pay attention to the fabric, as certain types of material can be more drying and irritating. Cotton, silk and cashmere are skin-friendly fabric options.

December/January 2021-22

Prevent Cracked Heels When It Gets Cold Cracked skin occurs when the skin becomes so rough and flaky that small tears begin to form due to lack of sufficient moisture and elasticity. These tears can grow bigger under stress from movement and may become fissures that extend deeper into the skin.

Causes of Cracked Heels The first step toward tackling cracked and dry heels is to eliminate the source.

Seasonal changes Dry skin on feet and heels is closely associated with the winter months. This is because the cold, dry weather draws moisture out of skin all over your body, including your feet.

Baths Long, hot baths can wash away the natural oils of your skin. These oils are essential for locking in moisture and preventing your skin from drying out and cracking. Opt for showers rather than baths or limit baths to just a few minutes. Also avoid rubbing your feet dry afterward, as this can further remove natural oils. Instead, pat your feet dry then apply a moisturizer.

Harsh soaps Just like hot water, certain soaps can strip essential oils from your skin. Avoid the temptation to wash your feet vigorously or use harsh soaps, even if you’re combatting foot odor. Use a gentle touch and products that preserve your skin’s natural protection.

Treating Cracked and Dry Heels If you suffer from cracked heels, you can boost your body’s natural renewal and repair process. Gently buff away dead, hard skin to reveal the healthy, soft skin underneath. Then, for long-lasting hydration, follow up with an option like a coconut oil-enriched Amope PediMask, which will leave your feet soft, smooth and nourished in just 20 minutes.

Ways to Maintain Mental Wellness

The holiday season can be a beautiful time to celebrate love and life, but for many people the holidays are also incredibly stressful. There are extra demands on our already limited time and energy, and facing isolation or difficult family dynamics can lead to increased anxiety, depression, and trigger unhealthy behaviors like alcohol and drug use. For those of us who are working on our mental wellness, the holidays are often filled with challenges. It is no coincidence that alcohol and drug misuse skyrocket during the holidays, as well as feelings of anxiety, depression, and loneliness. However, with some thought and planning, you can prepare yourself to enjoy the holidays while maintaining your mental wellness goals. Prioritizing your health and wellbeing during the holidays will not only help you feel better during this difficult season, but will also strengthen your wellness journey in the long term. Below, renowned neurologist Dr. Antonello Bonci, Executive Chairman and Founder of the GIA Miami Mental Health and Addiction Treatment Center, offers 10 tips to help people prioritize mental wellness and effectively cope with triggers that can cause depression— particularly during the stressful holiday season.

Know your triggers. Understanding the people, places, objects and environments that cause you stress, anxiety or craving for substances like alcohol or drugs can help you avoid and manage those triggers during the holidays. Emotions are often the most powerful triggers, and the holidays are filled with activities and interactions that can lead to feelings of stress, guilt, shame, resentment and even anger and confrontation with friends and family members. By recognizing your personal triggers, you are taking the first step towards being able to manage your feelings and avoid resorting to unhealthy behaviors.

Know your limits. The holidays are often overwhelming. Become familiar with your emotional limits and respect them when

December/January 2021-22

During the Holidays Written by Merilee Kern, MBA

you need a break. Practice self-reflection and learn to recognize when you are feeling stressed or taking on too much. Set a timer on your phone (even a silent one) to remind yourself to conduct regular check-ins with your emotions. When you recognize that you are not feeling your best, take time for a “mental wellness break” or try to distance yourself from the situation that may be triggering you or contributing to negative emotions.

Have a plan. You know the holidays are going to be stressful. Before you feel anxious and overwhelmed, create a plan on how you are going to manage difficult situations. Maybe that family party always involves drinking or champagne toasts. Be ready with a non-alcoholic drink in hand. Make time to exercise and fill yourself with healthy foods like vegetables, nuts, lean protein and healthy sweets like dark chocolate early in the evening (or even before you attend a party), so that you will be less likely to indulge in unhealthy choices—and guilt that can often follow. Prepare mindfulness or grounding strategies like deep breathing to practice in quiet moments. Plan to spend time with a pet or go outside for a breath of fresh air when you need it. If you know alcohol or drugs will be at a party, be prepared to leave before the evening gets late, when you know people are more likely to lose control.

Reflect on the past and your dreams for the future. You have already dedicated a lot of time and hard work to your mental wellness journey. Reflect on how far you have come. Talk with people who support you and take pride in each other’s mental health accomplishments. Before you make an unhealthy choice during a time when you are stressed or overwhelmed, try to pause and imagine what that choice will mean for your future. Are you risking the hard work and progress that you have made? Is that choice right for the person you are becoming? Does it align with the path you want to walk? Envision your dreams for your future and hold that image in your mind during difficult times. Consider carrying a small token in your pocket or a reminder of your goals with you (set the

background of your phone or wear a special bracelet) to draw strength from during stressful moments.

Draw your boundaries Be prepared to say “no” to the extra holiday activity, to the alcoholic drink or unhealthy food, and to anything that conflicts with who you are today and who you want to be on your mental wellness journey. Anyone who is upset with you for setting your boundaries and saying “no” is upset because you are showing them that they can no longer control you. Respect yourself and put your needs and goals first. The same people who are upset with you for drawing your boundaries in the short term will have more respect for you in the long term, too.

Practice self-care and gratitude. Often, we feel pressured to support other people during the holidays, but it is important to take the time to take care of yourself as well. You have put in so much work into your recovery journey and you deserve to protect that. Write down reasons that you are grateful for where you are in your life now and what has helped you get here. Schedule time to take care of yourself in any way that is meaningful to you. Cook a nice meal for yourself. Go for a walk on your favorite outdoor path. Take a long bath, watch a favorite movie, dance to your favorite music or read that book that you’ve been meaning to get around to. Play! If you have a hard time prioritizing yourself, enlist a friend for a self-care “date” and practice self-care at a set time together.

Tap your support network. The holidays are a great reason to spend extra time with the people who love and support you. Use the holiday season to grow your mental wellness support network. Plan check-ins with a wellness buddy before and after holiday events like family or work parties. Commit to an extra group meeting or outing with your support network. Tell people in your support network where you are going and talk about what might worry or stress you. Be available for friends who are prioritizing their mental wellness too. Practice recognizing your limits, saying ‘no’, and making mental wellness plans together (see #3

51


above). Let yourself be held accountable by those who understand where you have been and what you are going through.

Shift your priorities and try something new. In many cultures the holidays are used as a time to over-indulge in unhealthy behaviors. Set aside time to reflect on what the holidays mean to you. If you have used the holidays to overindulge in the past, how did that make you feel? Is that what you want out of this season, or are there other ways you want to celebrate this time of year? Maybe you would rather prioritize the new, healthier version of yourself that you have worked so hard to create. Cultivate a new tradition like going to a yoga class, a healthy brunch with friends, a ritual like meditation, or any other activity that aligns with the person you are becoming on your wellness journey.

Nourish your soul. The holidays are often associated with rituals and traditions that can be religious in nature. If past traditions align with the person 52

you are becoming on your wellness journey, immerse yourself in those holiday rituals and activities that bring you comfort and enhance your mental wellness. If traditions of the past no longer serve you, find new ways to nourish your soul during the holiday season. Try to find activities that bring you fulfillment and satisfaction through helping others. Put yourself in service of others in need by volunteering at a local homeless shelter, prepare meals for the elderly, serve at a local pet shelter or donate gifts to children in need.

Forgive. During the holidays there is often a pressure for everything to be “perfect.” If you return to alcohol or drug use or make a poor choice for your mental wellness during this season, do not give up. Try to learn from the mistake and forgive yourself. Use the tips above, ask for support from people you trust, and get professional help when you need it to get back on the right path for your wellness journey. If you or a loved one are dealing with alcohol or drug use, anxiety, depression or other mental health concerns, strategies like those

offered above can help. Dr. Bonci, and other of the world-class field experts at GIA Miami, have pioneered innovative techniques that encompass a whole mind-brain-body approach. So, this season put these tips to task to help find the best version of you. There’s perhaps no greater gift.
