editor’s message

Putting together a magazine is a monumental task it’s true, but it’s definitely a labour of love for all those involved. It can also be extremely fun; I mean, who wouldn’t want to spend their work day in a gorgeous multi-million dollar home with creative people, delicious food and luxuriously expensive items including jewellery that comes with its own security detail. I would. So we did just that when we shot our Living in Luxury feature for this, our Luxury Issue of Homes & Living. It’s human nature to yearn for something more than what we already have—we’re fickle creatures. Even those who already enjoy the finer things in life will dare to dream of desirable things they have yet to own or experience for themselves. So what exactly is ‘luxury’? Well, for different people this may mean different things. The dictionary defines luxury as, “a state of great comfort or elegance, especially when involving great expense.” It is also a means of indulging one’s tastes and desires and at this time of year—as we close one year and look forward to the next—what we all desire is that feeling of comfort, elegance and yes, indulgence, that is the essence of all that is luxurious. With that in mind, we’ve put together a magazine chock full of stunning homes, entertaining articles and all the bling, sparkle, comfort and joy that you covet for your shopping lists and bucket lists—enjoy! On behalf of all of us here at Homes & Living magazine, I wish you an enjoyable holiday season and a successful and luxurious New Year.

Sincerely,

Michelle van der Merwe, Editor-in-chief

There is a place in architecture where the line between art and building becomes blurred. There is also a place where the story of the house becomes, at least in part, the story of the man who built it.

the horizon

A West Coast-Asian infusion of architectural brilliance.

Constructed in one of Nanaimo’s most elite neighbourhoods, The Horizon brings to life the homeowners’ dream of a West Coast-inspired home that appears light and welcoming while responding contextually to its natural environment.

The lot was familiar to custom home builder TS Williams who completed another project in the neighbourhood and recognized the potential to capture views from almost every room in the house. Company owner Taran Williams played an important role in establishing a design that would meet both the homeowners’ vision and the inherent challenges of building into the rocky, ocean-facing terrain.

december/january 2014

Rough-cut stone on the forward most façades connects the home with its rocky hillside location, while neutral vertical panelling softens the mass on the upper levels. The architecture gracefully imparts a subtle Asian influence—nested rooflines, staggered fascias and subtle curved overhangs announce the front and rear entrances. Extruding exterior beams with inverted angles meet the home’s scale while flawlessly illustrating how well the two design styles can integrate.

35


The holiday season is a time for family and friends, for traditional comforts and extravagant indulgences; it’s a time for entertaining and being entertained and let’s face it—we all strive to do it in high style.

So how do the well-to-do—the affluent, prosperous, well-heeled crowd—live and entertain at this time of year? Well, H&L will take you behind the wrought iron gates so you can wander through a luxurious home filled with all the bling, sparkle, comfort and joy one could dream of; from sparkling chandeliers, crystal and jewellery to cars and plush throws for chilly nights.

THE MAGNOLIA SPA & HOTEL AN INTERNATIONAL BEST This small luxury boutique from Victoria has been honoured as one of the ‘Top 20 Business Travel Hotels in the World’ by Condé Naste. They are #10—evidence that if you look after your clients, they will look after you. Results were tallied from a survey of 79,000 international business travellers and readers of Condé Naste Traveler. Named alongside other great hotels like Hamburg’s Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten and Portland’s Hotel deLuxe, Victoria’s own Magnolia Spa & Hotel is the only Canadian hotel on the list. The Magnolia credits its success firstly to its desirable location in the downtown core—convenient to a number of dining locations suitable for business meetings or a short walk to the inner harbour, to get a true taste of the Victoria experience. Secondly, its traditional yet contemporary rooms make clients feel at home. This past year the hotel celebrated its 15th Anniversary and completely renovated all 64 rooms to create an elegant, sophisticated and timeless space for clients to curl up in while away from home. Finally, as a smaller hotel, the Magnolia uses its size to its advantage in providing exemplary service with attention to detail, personalized care and an above-and-beyond approach that sets them above the rest.

PARC MODERN TURNS THREE

DE BEERS COMES TO CANADA

In celebration of their third birthday this year, Parc Modern is moving their young Victoria furniture company to a larger location in the Rock Bay area. With its increased traffic and space, and free parking, this new location is a promising present for the company—one that allows for further growth. With other home renovation stores like Gabriel Ross and European Flooring also situated in the vicinity, this area is becoming a great one stop shop where designers and home owners alike can find everything from furniture to cabinets to flooring.

De Beers Diamond Jewellers opened its first Canadian location this fall on Vancouver’s Alberni Street—a retail corridor which has become synonymous with luxury goods for discerning consumers.

Three years ago, Jody and David Adelman saw an opening in the Victoria furniture business for unique yet livable furnishings for smaller homes and condos. Sit, play, live—these are the words Parc Modern lives by and they are known for choosing furniture that balances function and fashion. When a customer walks into Parc Modern they are asked how they live, work and play, as the pieces being purchased need to fit their life as well as their home. Come celebrate with their present to you—36% off of everything! Parc Modern 589 Bay Street Victoria, BC 250.590.1110 1.855.828.PARC(7272) parcmodern.com

Designed by architect Christophe Carpente, principal of CAPS, this store is designed to sparkle as brightly as De Beers’ timelessly elegant wares. The exterior features engraved glass panels meant to resemble glass that has been scratched by diamonds. And a magic mirror projects a recording of a light scan diving in through the top of a diamond, showing the beam as it is split into different parts of a prism. Strategically placed to direct the flow of traffic around the store, from collection to collection, the brightly lit showcases are lacquered in glossy black on the bottom, blending into the ebony floor and giving the impression that they, and the pieces they display, are floating. Upon arrival before some of the higher-end pieces in the De Beers collection, easily accessible and screened off private rooms are available for those who wish to move forward with a purchase, for a shopping experience as refined as the jewellery itself. Given its beauty, diversity and reputation as a world class city, De Beers says Vancouver is a natural fit for its first Canadian retail store.
