I love this place...

The Springs

The MacFarlaine family villa is the perfect peaceful retreat Words by Hazel Plush; images by Nasir Rauf

February 2013


Cover Feature 13

Roger MacFarlaine and his wife Christiane have lived their lives on the move, travelling across South East Asia for the past 20 years, so it’s no surprise to find that their home is full of intriguing curios. Stepping into their living room, visitors are confronted with a life-size Buddha statue, a majestic welcome befitting their Oriental-inspired décor. You wouldn’t believe that this is The Springs – in this tranquil part of suburban Dubai, the couple have recreated their very own slice of Asia. “All the things that you see in the house are items that we’ve collected from all over the world,” says Roger. “They’re from Cambodia, China, Thailand, Singapore... We see them, and we feel at home.” But woven rugs, statues and lamps aren’t the only things they brought with them on their last move from Egypt to Dubai – Queenie the cat, a stray that the pair adopted, joined them too. “We’re animal lovers; it’s all part of keeping your family close and having familiarity all around you.” Influenced by their time in Asia, the couple have incorporated elements of Feng Shui into their interiors, turning to the philosophy to encourage success. “We started exploring Feng Shui about 16 years ago,” says Roger. “We were in Singapore.

‘When we explored Feng Shui, we felt a positive change... We never looked back’ My wife did a course on it, and it made sense to align the natural elements of life. When she started to adjust a few items, we both felt a positive change. We take elements from it, and we’ve never looked back.” Roger, the vice president of technology at Mövenpick hotels, has taken the practice to work, too: “From the curves of the wall to the way the pictures are hung – they were all suggested by the Feng Shui master that did my house.” February 2013

‘I feel comfortable here, and can really get into the creative zone’

When not working, Roger’s passion is music – and the couple have transformed their second bedroom into a high-tech recording studio. The vibrant red wall (an energy-giving hue, according to Feng Shui) displays the most treasured pieces of Roger’s vast guitar collection, and an array of discs, magazine clippings and photographs pays tribute to his creativity. “Here, there’s a sense of familiarity too,” says Roger. “I have a guitar pedal that my father bought for me when I was a kid, and a guitar that he played on too. It’s daily

February 2013

inspiration: I feel comfortable here, and can really get into the creative zone.” After a life spent flitting between countries, the MacFarlaines have found comfort in the Springs community. “We loved the sense of calm immediately,” says Roger. “After a busy day, you want to come back to somewhere peaceful, and you want to drive home without the hassle that we’ve experienced in other parts of the globe. The couple have also surrounded themselves with a social circle, too: “There’s a big sense of community here. You see

people, you wave at them, and you pass the time of day. Many of our friends live close by as well; it’s so easy to drive over for parties and things like that – we’re always entertaining, or out for dinner with friends.” So, are the MacFarlaines itching to make another move? “Not at all! Moving from country to country is a very unsettling way to live, and although we are a very strong team, we just don’t want the upheaval. We’ve worked to create a sense of stability, and neither of us wants to lose that. Finally, we feel very settled.”

The Springs: the essentials

Your need-to-know guide to what’s in and around the area Renting & buying

Leisure time

Shopping & eating

Schooling

There are no restrictions on renting and buying here, so it’s great for short- or long-term moves. All of the properties are villas with either two or three bedrooms and gardens of varying sizes (no high rise buildings here), making it perfect for families or couples, particularly those with pets. While some villa owners have installed private pools, most people head to the communal areas that exist in almost every compound, where you’ll find a good-sized pool, lifeguard and changing facilities. There are also park areas with rides for small children and basketball courts for those a bit older. This is community living at its best.

With abundant flat, tree-lined streets and numerous expanses of greenery and lakes on offer in this pretty patch of suburbia, you’d be hard-pressed to find an excuse not to get active. Get the heart rate up with a run around one of the many lakes or take a refreshing dip in the communal swimming pool while your children shoot hoops with friends on one of the basketball courts. Meanwhile, dog owners will meet likeminded neighbours while walking their pooches, on leads of course, in this pet-friendly area. And, for those looking for more, a Fitness First is close at hand – complete with gym and classes – for a price.

Almost everything you need is within walking distance (during the cooler winter months, anyway) at one of the three shopping areas: the Town Centre, Springs Village and Meadows Village, each boasting a supermarket (a large and small Spinney’s and a Choithram). For yummy treats, check out the cakes at Milk and Honey Gourmet or grab a frozen yogurt at Pinkberry. For unusual goodies, we love the small, outdoor winter market at the Spring’s Town Centre. Eat-out options are varied: from takeaway at McDonald’s and coffee at Starbucks or Tim Hortons, to a leisurely lunch at Shakespeare and Co.

The Springs offers several great options for schooling – all with solid reputations. For a British education, the Dubai British School, part of the Taaleem network, is on your doorstep and teaches three- to 17-yearolds. For the International Baccaulaureate, try Emirates International School, in The Meadows, which offers a primary and high school education. Just a few minutes’ drive away, in Al Barsha, the state-of-the-art GEMS World Academy offers the International Baccalaureate and, from September, Foremarke, Repton’s preparatory school in the UK, will open in Barsha too.

Market update

Independent Finance’s general manager Sam Wani reveals the latest movements in mortgages

Property prices rose by a massive 15% in Q4 of 2012. Total appreciation in villa segment was 24% and in apartments was 16%. Banks’ liquidity was touching AED1.13 trillion. A huge range of mortgage products was being offered, and applicants with a salary of as low as AED10,000 were eligible. Most banks were offering loan-to-values of 80%. Some offered 85% loan-to-value and one bank started offering 90% LTV. The rates fell too: we saw introductory rates as low as 2.99%. Dubai’s population rose from less than 2 million in 2011 to 2.1 million by the end of 2012. The economy grew by 4%, and employment figures were showing robust growth. With confidence returning and mortgage activity showing

a steady increase, 2013 property prices were looking to surpass the 2012 figures. A 20-25% appreciation would have created the much-feared property bubble. It was in this context that central bank decided to impose restrictions on LTVs. Mortgages for expats were restricted to 50% LTV for the first property and 40% LTV for the second. For UAE nationals the first mortgage was restricted to 70% LTV. The change was introduced on 30 December with no clear date of implementation. Most banks introduced the changes immediately and others finished approving older submission pipelines. Almost all bankers, mortgage intermediaries and real estate brokers voiced their concern at the sudden

and extreme limits. While the action took the steam out of an overheating market, it may have proved counterproductive. These concerns were communicated by the Emirates Banks Association. The proposals included revising Expat mortgage LTV and setting up a voluntary code of conduct by the mortgage lenders. Central Bank revoked the LTV cap on 21 January and banks were allowed to do business as normal. But the episode has shaken the industry and refocused attention on responsible lending. It also slowed the property prices and eliminated the possibility of a bubble building. A new mortgage law is expected to be implemented later this year.

Sandrine Loureiro, Residential Consultant

Jumeirah Beach Residence has shown consistent growth in prices for purchase as well as rentals over the last eight months, as the development continues to top the list of investors and tenants alike as one of the best locations to live. This upward trend is expected to continue slowly and stabilise according to supply and demand. Not even the construction of new hotels and a large retail and entertainment project on the beachfront have deterred clients and visitors from this family friendly area. Indeed, the developments will likely add further value to the district once they are completed. Property prices change frequently. Please visit bhomes.com for the most up-to-date pricing

Interior design 101

Fancy trying your hand at remodelling your home? These expert tips from local interior design gurus will get you started… easy and cheap to do too, as most kitchen units are standard sizes. Alternatively, change the worktop: composite materials are the most popular finishes available now. These are made from a ground stone mixed with resin, and are available in a variety of colours. They are relatively hard-wearing and the cost is similar to that of marble.

Living room The majority of home owners tend to place everything in a room at sofa level and below which makes a room look extremely bland. Designers will always take the eye up, high into a space, to make the room feel larger and more defined. In colour schemes, people are turning away from neutral palettes towards more individual styles. Popular colours include greys, blues, blacks and chocolate brown. Silk wallpapers and fabrics, plus metallic finishes (especially gold) are very glamorous and warm. Custom-designed shelving will allow you to

display all of your favourite pieces in a space that suits their shape. Consider fitting the shelves with discrete LED lights to illuminate the items, or painting sections at the back of the units to add colour and texture. Kitchen This space needs to be functional, as well as stylish. Long drawers are a must in a new kitchen. Not only can you can see everything at first glance but you no longer have to bend down to find something at the back of a cupboard. For a quick fix, a new splash back will update your kitchen in no time. Coloured glass is very popular as it is easy to maintain with no grout lines for dirt to nestle in. Changing the doors and handles of your existing cupboards is relatively

‘Mirrors will make a reception area feel lighter and more spacious’

Lyndall Fernie, lead tutor of interior design short courses at Chelsea College of Art & Design Middle East chelsea.arts.ac.uk

Reception area I always put full-length mirrors in the reception area of every house I design. The larger the better, even if it has to be installed in sections. It visually doubles the size of the space as well as reflecting the light – making it feel lighter, spacious and welcoming. It also doubles up as somewhere to check what you look like before you go out. Create a focal point which will draw the eye to the furthest view point from where you enter. This will make the space feel much larger and could be further enhanced with lighting. Fresh flowers as you enter will give visual stimuli

as well as a beautiful scent. Alternatively, high quality fake flowers will also look good – but remember to dust them regularly. Take away all the clutter: hide coats, shoes and bags in custom-designed storage, and purchase a table with drawers for keys. Sharon Conneely-Donaldson, design consultant and tutor of interior design courses at Ductac 050 532 3749, ductac.org Bedrooms Restful neutrals, blues, and greens are ideal for bedrooms as they have elegant, soothing and restful tones. Try duck egg blue on items such as

bedcovers (choose high thread count cotton in a sateen finish), and pillows and throws in natural and comfortable materials such as cable knits, velvets, chenilles, cottons, jutes and linens. The rest of the bedroom can provide a backdrop of neutral colours inspired by nature with light or warm woods and textured woollen rugs. If space allows, add an armchair to a corner or near a window to read and relax. Let your personality shine through with fun and funky scatter cushions, meaningful art and family photographs.

taps with automated sensors, and bathtubs with jet systems. A freestanding bathtub is an elegant focal point. To recreate the spa experience at home, look at materials with organic textures such as marble, metal, stone and wood. If you are stuck with existing sanitary ware in rented accommodation that you are not permitted to change, consider using Permaglaze – a liquid porcelain-style material that leaves your bathroom looking like new. It is available through Under One Roof (underoneroof.ae).

Bathrooms Update your bathroom using items with interesting forms,

Dining Room A wall with an interesting paint colour/wallpaper or oversized

art and accessories can give the dining room warmth and personality. Choose the style, size and shape of the table to suit the room: a rectangular or oval set-up suits a rectangular room, while a round or square design suits a square room. Solid wood and marble tables with ornate details complement traditional and classical rooms, while high gloss, glass and stainless steel finishes are perfect for more contemporary areas. Incorporate some floor and table lamps on dimmer switches to adapt the mood according to the time of day. A large chandelier or a linear pendant light above the table helps to define the focal point.

Essential interiors inspiration – whatever your taste Mr.AyMAn Al JAMil

but at the end of the day they are essential. I also love old framed manuscripts and family photos, and a couple of stylish lampshades will really do the trick too.

i believe home décor should be about feeling good before anything else, and my style reflects that. I can fall in love with something for its artistic value, for its comfort, or for its practicality. i mostly take inspiration from my travels around the world, but I find our own region – the Middle East – the most stimulating. It is authentic, and has a unique blend of east and west, yet it is distinct from them. Everything is entrenched in history, too: it’s everlasting. you can never know what to expect in Mudo Concept – we are always being surprised by new products, ideas and presentations from all over the world. It may sound like a cliché, but it really is my favourite interiors store.

Better... Bathrooms From wonderful washrooms

to elegant en suites, now’s the time to scrub up in style

Dornbracht

Arty corner There’s no need to make your bathroom a sterile, nofrills space: think of it as an extension of your bedroom, with homely touches to make it unique. This deep standalone bath from SELV at Dornbracht (above, dornbracht.com) adds a real touch of decadence – who can possibly resist a steamy wallow in its ohso-deep tub? If you’ve high ceilings and plenty of room, hang artwork in funky frames (the more eclectic the better) to personalise stark walls. Shelves and storage cabinets aren’t just useful for bathroom essentials, either: there’s nothing quite like sinking into a hot bath with a great book, so why not bring your favourite tomes into your bathroom? Display artwork and curios on

unusual stands and sideboards, and invest in a statement modesty screen to make the space feel cosy. This look is all about making your bathroom feel part of your home, a space to relax after a hard day’s work,

‘Try marl grey or grassy green colours to keep things fresh...’ so soften a hard tiled floor with rugs galore, and splash out on beautiful bottles that won’t look out of place in your new stylish environs. If off-white walls just won’t cut it, a statement wall in soothing tones wil certainly do the trick – try marl grey, or a grassy green to keep things fresh.

Kohler

Girlie retreat A woman’s bathroom is her haven, an escape from the stresses of everyday life – so if you have the place to yourself, be sure to create some seriously serene surroundings. We adore this pink creation by Kohler (above, me.kohler.com), with elegant sinks and a heavenly Jacuzzi tub. Accessorise with fresh flowers, a classic armchair

(perfect for holding clothes while you’re bathing), and a smattering of scented candles. Fluffy towels are a must, of course, as are vast full-length mirrors and quaint soap bottles. Go all-out with a pastel pink colour scheme or use colour accents to add character and cosiness – and invest in dimmer switches for calming mood lighting at your fingertips.

Hansgrohe

Modern masterpiece

Bel Air Collection, AED129-643

Garda Collection, AED1,083-2,112

When you’re decorating a bathroom, it’s tempting to just slap on the white paint – but if you’re craving a stylish creation, get experimental with charcoal, brown and black instead. This sleek washroom set by Axor Starck at Hansgrohe (above, hansgrohe-middleeast.

‘A smattering of quirky artwork and plants will soften this look’ com) brings modern machismo to the fore, with minimalist faucets and clean-cut shapes aplenty. You’ll need lashings of natural light and high ceilings

to pull this look off, so floor-toceiling windows or skylights are essential. You can’t go wrong with a vast mirror, either, and a smattering of quirky artwork and plants to soften the dark interiors. When night falls, light up the space with sensitive spotlights and lamps, or use tealight candles for a low-key ambiance.

(above, rakceramics.com). Secondly, invest in calming interior décor for a truly serene space – think cream, caramel, or light marble effects. Thirdly, a plethora of soft rugs and towels will make the space cosy – perfect for padding around in

comfort after a long hot bath. Finally, finish the effect with spa-worthy lotions and potions, displayed to maximum impact in cool glass bottles. This is an adults-only zone, so banish the kids to their own en suites to keep those towels pearl white.

At Archimedia we can fit Lutron dimmers that work with all types of light sources – some models automatically save 15% of the energy used in a standard switch. Alternatively, an occupancy sensor can turn lights on when you enter a room and turn them off when you leave, saving up to 20% of energy. A sensor is ideal for rooms where lights are often inadvertently left on – sensors are easy to install, and have a 10-year battery life. Lutron offers control systems for appliances and temperature too.” archimedia-me.com

“It’s our passion to seek solutions that can save water. Lower hot water consumption also means reduced energy requirements, resulting in lower carbon dioxide emissions and costs. Hansgrohe’s mixers and showerheads with EcoSmart technology consume up to 60% less water than conventional products without any loss of comfort. Flow limitation and spray jets reduce water consumption to either 6 or 9 l/min depending on the diameter of the shower, and save energy as less water needs to be heated. You can see the benefits with our online savings calculator, at m.savings.hansgrohe.com.” hansgrohe-middleeast.com

“We need to focus on the ability of our home to use energy resources efficiently. Carbon dioxide emissions result from the use of energy, water, waste and fossil fuels. The best way to reduce your consumption is to compile an inventory of usage and waste in the ecosystem of your house. I use a free iPad app called KiloWatt. It allows me to list all of the sources of power demand in my home and plan strategies to reduce my monthly bill. As a result, I have installed two simple timers on my external lighting, and programmed my existing A/C thermostats to reduce the bill immediately by about 30%.” dcce.ae

BaKed eggs with Beef Bacon, spinach and tomato relish Serves 4 • • • • • • •

8 free range eggs 100g baby spinach 8 pieces of streaky beef bacon 80g tomato relish (available from jones the grocer) Salt and pepper 4 slices sourdough bread, toasted 60g butter

1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C. Lay the beef bacon on a greaseproof tray and cook for 5 minutes, or until crisp.

2. Preheat a heavy-based frying pan on a high heat, add a small amount of oil, then toss in the spinach. Season with salt and pepper and sauté until just wilted. Remove from the pan, drain on a paper towel, and set aside. 3. Divide up the beef bacon, spinach and tomato relish between four ceramic bowls, leaving an area in the centre for the eggs. Crack two eggs in the centre of each dish and season with salt and pepper. 4. Place lids on top of the bowls and bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes – the whites should be set but the yolks still runny. Serve immediately with toasted sourdough and butter on the side.

Kick-start your day It’s the most important meal of the day, but how to rustle up a breakfast that’s as tasty as it is wholesome? Chef Tom from jones the grocer shares his favourite recipes… With stores and eateries everywhere from New Zealand and Singapore to Qatar and the UAE, jones the grocer is a true foodie’s emporium. Step inside, and you’ll be greeted by handmade artisan goodies – think chocolates, cheeses and delectable fresh bread – and a menu brimming with wholesome dishes. In our book, there’s no better way to start the day than by tucking into the hearty breakfast menu – and Chef Tom Arnel agrees: “Our breakfasts are fresh, simple and brimming with natural goodness. You need to start your day with the right mix of carbohydrate, protein, essential fats and nutrients to ensure your mind, body and soul perform at their best. During the last six months I’ve rekindled my love for the sport of triathlon – it’s a daily reminder that fuelling your body properly in the morning is just as important as the training itself.” So which choices does Chef Tom recommend during this season’s cooler climes? “In winter I’m inclined to reach for the stewed apple and porridge – though you can never beat poached organic eggs with shaved truffle, grilled asparagus and toasted sourdough. Warm food is comforting, and gives your spirit a boost to kick-start the day. As long as you are eating something that is good for you and suits the climate outside, you can’t go wrong.” jonesthegrocer.com
