I love this place...

The Meadows Lars Narfeldt’s villa is steeped in stylish finds from around the globe; he shares an insight into his home and reveals why he loves life in one of Dubai’s greenest communities... Images by Nasir Rauf, naisirauf.com

What prompted you to set up home here in The Meadows? I’ve been in Dubai since 2004 and, back then, this was pretty much the only area to live if you wanted a villa. Before that my wife and I lived opposite the Emirate Towers on Sheikh Zayed Road, but it was very noisy. In terms of what brought me to the UAE, before my family and I came here we lived in Afghanistan – we always lived in war zones as I used to be with the United Nations, on the civilian side. After working in those zones for many years I got old and tired of sleeping in bad conditions and on bad bed sheets and eating bad food and managed to stumble in to a Scandinavian retail brand, I then later set up one of my own (Kollektion & Co) here in Dubai, selling regular and luxury Scandinavian furniture brands. Did you decide to rent or buy? We bought it. This was in 2004 so the prices were really too good to be true. It was amazing. I wish I had seen the property boom coming – we bought a few houses at the time, but sold not long after because we were so focused on our own business and doing well with that, so we didn’t think ahead. But if we’d have been sitting on those for a while – wow. Do you think Dubai is a good place to invest? Absolutely, my wife and I have two companies that we own and run here. We’ve come across quite a few strange laws, but there are also a lot of advantages. For example, I don’t have to pay 75 per cent tax, like I would do in Sweden, so it makes much more sense. How do you find the neighbourhood as a whole? We lived here from the day the street opened and have always found it to be very private. There is another British couple I January 2012

part Scottish), and there’s kids’ stuff that our sons have painted for us over the years. I also think that if you are born Scandinavian or Swedish or Danish, you’re naturally into your home making. I grew up with all the classic chairs you’ll see here – a Mathsson Jetson 1959 and an Arne Jacobsen egg chair from 1962. It’s a very ‘Scandinavian’ style. Did you import the items? Yes and most things here are originals. The egg chair is from 1963, our yellow chairs are actually from Boston, the red chairs from Germany and the table is from New York. Anyway, when you are born with that style, as most Swedes are, in the ‘50s ‘60s and ‘70s this was the standard kind of set up in any home. We like this type of style and, thanks to the US sitcom Mad Men, the rest of the world loves it too. This Scandinavian design that everyone talks about is no longer a geographical term but an aesthetics term. That’s the background to our interios, combined with the fact that, when I was in the UN the longest I lived anywhere was two years – sometimes only three months – so when we finally moved here we said we should create that home we’ve always wanted.

know of, who are fairly new, and an Iranian family whose daughters we know as they play with our youngest son. I find it a bit sad that we don’t really know our neighbours, but if you look at the way the area is built; we all drive in to drives, we have gates, the walls in the garden are high and everything is facing that way, so it’s easy to miss people. What is there to do in the area? We have two golf courses in the Emirates Hills, four community centres with four Choithrams and two Spinneys. We also have a Wagamama’s, Indian restaurants, Starbucks, Pizza Express and the Lakes Club for food and drink. In terms of sport, there’s tennis courts, football pitches and gyms – all for the residents. Each town centre also has a health care centre, there’s a clinic up the road and nail bars and barbers too – everything you need is here, it’s phenomenal. To get to January 2012

The Dubai Mall it takes 15 minutes, and with a new airport opening in Jebel Ali, it will take only 20 minutes to reach an airport. Do you feel there’s anything missing? No, if you want the beach it’s only 10 minutes away, if you want to dine out you have the Marina nearby or one of the best restaurants in Dubai – La Classique at the Emirates Golf Course – which has phenomenal food. The new access road means you can get around very easily; you are at the Mall of the Emirates in no time, for example. You’ve really made the villa your own; how would you sum up your interiors? I think that a good home should reflect the personalities of the people living in the house, so it’s a personal style: the African pieces you’ll see are my wife’s style (she’s part Sierra Leonian, part Lebanese and

Where would you shop in Dubai for home furnishings? We don’t tend to shop a lot here as there aren’t really any true Middle Eastern elements. But, if I did, perhaps it would be at a Christie’s Middle East auction. You could get furniture similar to the pieces we have from De Marco, too, or try furniture from THE One, which is similar. For accessories there is a shop called D.tales that I like. Finally, Lars, are there any drawbacks to living here? Well, we’ve been talking about moving a few times, just because the house is a little bit too big for us now that our two older sons have moved out. With all of us here it made sense, but now, with just the three of us, it’s a little bit big. But then we think, where would we move to? Financially the service charges are probably the best in town and in terms of amenities, such as shops, you have everything here you could possibly want.

Love Thy Neighbourhood

The Meadows

All-you-need-to-know about living in one of the city’s most family-friendly neighbourhoods...

Renting Sprawling neighbourhoods of pictureperfect villas form the green, familyfriendly community of The Meadows. Tree-dotted streets, pristine pathways and groomed greenery set the scene here; a setting that proves popular with parents due to its safe, security-monitored surrounds and communal play areas – ideal spots for little ones to play. When it comes to the properties themselves, would-be tenants can rent or buy here. Take your pick from villas with threeto six-bedrooms, all of which come with ample parking. Pools (personal and communal) prove the cherry on the top, perhaps followed by its convenient location: off Sheikh Zayed Road (and part of the Emirates Living district), placing you in close proximity to schools, shopping malls and the rest of the city…

Shopping and a bite Set up home in The Meadows and you’ll have the best of both worlds; essential grocery stores and quality eateries, both just minutes away. The former can be

found at the heart of the community; Meadows Village and the Meadows Town Centre. These quaint shopping hubs house a Spinneys (ideal for those essential everyday items) and a scattering of handy shops and cafes, including the likes of Costa Coffee (an ideal stop off for busy mums). On the higher-end scale is the five-star Address Montgomerie Dubai – a hotel that’s not only home to views of the world-class Emirates Golf Club but quality eateries too. At the golf club, Le Classique (04 380 222) is a show of polished woods, pea green interiors and quality French cuisine – it’s headed by award-winning chef, Francois Porte. It’s views across the golf course, meanwhile, serve as a winning spot day or night. Nineteen (04 363 1275) is also not to be missed, set before an idyllic backdrop of rolling greens and serving what is a fabulous Friday a la carte-style brunch.

Leisure time Those of you who want to perfect your swing will find few finer spots to tee off close to home than the Emirates Golf Club (dubaigolf.com), a Majlis

championship course that offers 36 holes of golf, no less, and is the only course of its kind to offer night golf – so you needn’t hang up your clubs if you’re at work all week. If you prefer sports of another ilk, Meadows Village has just the thing: Hayya! (hayya.ae) A residents’ members’ club, here you can turn a hand to all manner of activities, from tennis and squash on its courts to swimming in its pool or, for those of you who prefer to just relax during your time off, a sauna and steam room.

Schooling With such family-friendly surrounds on your doorstep, it’s no surprise that quality schools are not far away. GEMS (gemsworldacademy.com) is a renowned international school that sits just a five-minute drive away. If it’s a British curriculum you’re after, meanwhile, pay a visit to the Dubai British School (dubaibritishschool.ae). On top of these two popular choices are The Dubai International Academy (diadubai.com) and Emirates International School (eischool.com).

Steal their style… Julia Knight

The designer of the Julia Knight Collection (exclusively available at Bloomingdale’s Home Dubai) reveals her personal décor taste…

News, views and ideas to help style your home

‘Ooh-la-la’ was our reaction when spying the latest piece from French brand GRANGE’s wonderfully-named ‘Pompadour’ collection (above). Renowned for its elegant standalone pieces and candy box hues, GRANGE’s new chest of drawers is no exception – we can’t take our beady eyes off its turquoise tone, sure to add a delightful splash of colour to any boudoir or living space. Available to buy at Carpe Diem, Jumeirah Beach Road, Villa 145A.

Listen Up

The recent revamp of Natuzzi’s signature Sound Chair is now available to buy; a super-comfy leather design, complete with inbuilt loudspeakers that can be connected to MP3 Players and entertainment devices with ease (it really is the ultimate spot to retire to). It’s glitzy makeover is courtesy of a talented team of design students from Dubai’s Manipal University – winners of the INDEX show’s Student Design Challenge 2011. Invest in one for the New Year and you’ll sink between red, white, maroon or black rhinestones. What’s more, the sale proceeds go to Dubai Care’s Education for Children campaign. A good deed never looked better... Shop for it at Natuzzi, Sheikh Zayed Road.

I would sum up my home style as eclectic and glamorous and always comfortable. I always like to make sure my guests feel like they are surrounded by luxury and glamour but in a place they can curl up and chat.  Each of my rooms has a major burst of colour – for example our living room has twin Amethyst velvet sofas with accents of gold and shimmer throughout the room. Dubai’s textile and spice souks are my favoured spots to shop. They delighted all of my senses and provided great inspiration for colour, pattern and design – I took kilos of spices like dried lemons, frankincense and indigo balls back to the US with me and filled my bowls with them. I have large trays and bowls everywhere at home – imagine a large Lily bowl filled with lemons or sea glass collected from the French Riviera.  I love to pile books and candlesticks on trays, too, and always have them handy for impromptu party platters.  No home should be without candlelight, which is why I introduced a collection of candle holders this past season. Everyone looks better in candlelight. I love a design style that mixes natural textures, like warm woods and dramatic animal prints, with more womanly elements, like shimmer and shine. I looked to Kelly Wearstler interiors for my great room, which combines leopard prints, velvets sofas, fur throws and a fireplace inlaid with iridescent tiles.

Trendsetters

Want to start the New Year with a bang? Famous interior designer Julia Dempster reveals the hottest new trends for 2012 – so go ahead and impress your guests with your cutting edge style…

Embrace colour: 2012 brings forward old ideas, remodelled on new trends, these are coming to the light in the form of vivid colours and striking and out-of-the ordinary combinations and contrasts. I advise everyone to embrace colours that we wouldn’t normally associate with one another; combine intense shades with more neutral, balancing tones and think outside of the box – you’ll give your home a brand new personality. Try it: Designers Guild (pictured) – famed for its bright hues and beautiful yet clashing patterns, this design name is surely the most stylish route to achieving Julia’s look. Visit maisondart.ae Texture is very hot for 2012. The top trending textures are set to be a combination of fabrics, such as layered, January 2012

silky textures set against contrasting wool. The result? A blend that’s both interesting to the eye and still comfortable enough to snuggle up to. Try it: THE One (theoneplanet.com) – we say, head straight to the bedding and lounge section where cashmere throws, oversized cushions and silky bed covers will serve as the most sumptuous combination, without breaking the bank completely. Materials with a luxurious finish will be all the rage this year, such as marble, wood, leather and wool. These are easy to slip into any room in the house and will give the entire area a feel that is both luxe and comfortable. You can also set it off by adding large mirrors or wallpaper laced with silver details to your walls, which will

Colour CodE Julia Dempster on 2012’s most stylish colour palettes…

Black is the new black and is bang on trend as a high gloss finish – try it on wardrobes with oversized chrome handles. Neutrals will be cooler this year – think greys and slate hues. These work very well as wall finishes and as a backdrop for bolder, brighter accent colours. Pink and purple undertones are stronger than ever. They’re a great choice for accents, such as cushions or bed throws and can add both texture and colour to an otherwise monotone bedroom. Khaki and green are colours to accentuate this year. Look for them in cameo and animal print, in elements such as rugs, upholstery and accessories – they’ll give you a great, earthy feel. Metallics like bronze and silver and pearlised colours featured last year and continue to be a fabulous way to add glamour to any room in the house. Gold is making a comeback: expect a more satin finish to prevail – it works wonderfully on place mats on dining tables. My advice? Use it minimally for the most drama. Purple, mauve, heather and fig are all hues to use as a deeper undertone or monochromatic blend. They appear at their most rich, sumptuous and extravagant when used in silks, velvets and chenilles.

reflect more light throughout the room. Try it: B&B Italia (bebitalia.it) is Julia’s top tip for quality, Italian furniture, while BH loves Mr Perswall at Kollektion and Co (thekollektion.com) – famed for its fabulous wallpapers (there’s everything from damask swirls to tweed) – browse online for an eyecatching finish. Multifunctional spaces are a thing of the present, while formal living rooms and even formal dining rooms are fading into the past, eliminating the need for spending money on furniture and expensive decor that will never be used by the average homeowner. Create such a zone at home, with eat-in areas (such as a breakfast bar) incorporated in kitchens, or built-in desk units (for example in the bedroom) that can be used as small home offices. Open floor plans are a must-have to create an open and inviting place to entertain. Try it: Under One Roof (underoneroof.ae) If you don’t have an open plan space and want to create one, this British-run company has championed many a jaw-dropping makeover in Dubai homes. Kitchens are bigger and better than ever before, continuing to be the forefront in

new homes. In no other room will you see as much attention to detail. Kitchen budgets are creeping higher in relation to the rest of the home. Kitchens are central to your living experience. They are known as the heart of the home, and quite often the focal point, so if you reserve your budget for one room, why not this? Try it: Kohler (kohler.com) is a haven for quality kitchen fixtures, from its all-new, brightly-coloured taps and offbeat sinks to marble worksurfaces and wooden cupboards. The world is your oyster… Technology and beauty reign at home. It’s a combination that has not always gone hand in hand before, but in today’s world of style and function it is now more expected than ever before, especially in home design. Cutting edge technology is enabling design oriented manufacturers to produce stylish products that are also durable and easy to use. Attention is focused on products and home improvements that offer more style, performance and comfort. Try it: Better Life (betterlifeuae.com) stores are a hub of technology in the form of the latest, hippest household appliances from myriad top name brands. Sure to bring your room in to 2012 in no time.

Better… Living Rooms Why not kick off January with a brand new look? We round up the four lounges we’d most like to retire to this season... Domino EffEct

If you prefer to keep things neutral but are bored of beige (us too), black and white is a winning way to update existing lounges without resorting to an all-cream colour scheme. If you find all-out monochrome a little too stark, though, pepper it with soft grey hues. A glamorous finish can be achieved by introducing gloss-finished furniture or mirrored pieces, while a cosy feel is best gained with wooden pieces (try those with a vintage, white paint finish). Whatever your preferred finish, black and white photos or prints of loved-ones will prove a truly timeless way to add a personal touch. Get the look: Indigo Living, indigo-living.com

BRight Young things

Few brands master the art of bright, clashing colours and busy prints than Designers Guild. Hot off the press is Havana; the brand new Cuban-inspired look from its Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Perfectly matched to the all-year-round sunshine of Dubai, this look (think zesty limes and oranges, bright sea-blue and immaculate January 2012

white) virtually breathes life into your home with its feel-good hues. We say, combine its oh-so-bright colouring and prints with parreddown, pale wood furniture pieces to avoid over-doing things. What a room to retire to… Get the look: ‘Havana’ by Designers Guild is available at Maison d’Art, maisondart.ae

THE One

Earth tones, touch-me textures and a lived-in look set the scene for THE One’s latest look, ‘Ranch Living’ – recreate it and your lounge will appear plucked from Native America. Inspired by the rustic landscapes of the Nevada Desert and its native people, furniture and accessories marry dark and light woods, worn leather and ethnic prints (kelim weaving, pictured, looks most authentic). For a low key approach, keep things simple by adding a printed cushion or covered chair to neutral rooms. Alternatively, go the whole hog with printed wallpaper (try golden palm leaves, pictured) Native American Indian prints and animal horn sculptures. Get the look: THE One, theoneplanet.com

leaTHeR loveRS

If you want to chuck out the chintz this year, opt for clean lines, fuss-free fabrics and striking art – as seen in Home Centre’s Taurrian collection (right). We love its leather Chesterfield-style sofas; a classic piece that will stand the test of time, allowing you flexibility to alter walls or accessories without having to buy a new three-piece. Dress sofas in plump scatter cushions for optimum comfort and continue the leather look using the range’s leather-effect side and coffee tables, complete with stainless steel cross-over legs – we think it’s just the ticket for a masculine look that won’t cost the earth.

Practical solutions for domestic dilemmas

how Do i… choose the right nursery for my child? the wonder years nursery’s (wonderyearsnursery.com) manager sarah Baker, shares her inside knowledge...

1

DeciDe when your chilD is reaDy for the next step Whilst every child is an individual, as a child grows and develops they start to become more aware of the world around them, usually showing increased curiosity and a desire to explore their surroundings. Readiness for nursery can usually be judged according to a child’s need for greater stimulation and social interaction. If your child is showing signs of restlessness, dissatisfaction or boredom with the daily routine at home, some time spent at nursery can be very beneficial.

2

look out for certifications All nurseries should have a Professional License issued by the Department of Economic Development as well as a license issued by the Ministry of Social Affairs to show that they are duly authorised to operate a business and conduct nursery activities. Such licenses should be prominently displayed, so they are clearly visible to the public.

3

Be happy with the staff All members of staff should be friendly, approachable and understanding of your requirements. You should feel

January 2012

comfortable entrusting your child to their care. Staff should be qualified and experienced in the particular curriculum or methodology which your chosen nursery is offering. At The Wonder Years Nursery, for example, we have a British curriculum nursery, offer the Early Years Foundation Stage program and have classes headed by qualified and experienced Early Years Practitioners.

4

take note of waiting lists Securing a nursery place for your child in Dubai can often be a challenge. Nurseries do have waiting lists and it is advisable to put your child’s name down in plenty of time to avoid disappointment. Even brand new nurseries that start off with availability tend to fill fairly rapidly.

5

Don’t fret! In general, nurseries will have a ‘settling-in’ period. This can range from one to two weeks to the extreme of a month or more for children who find the transition more challenging. This can often be a trying period for parents as it may be the first time their child is outside the home, so it’s important that parents and nursery staff support each other.

Child-friendly CheCklist

Have a list of queries in mind when visiting nurseries and you’ll leave feeling equipped to make that all-important decision is it secure and safe? You’ll want to leave your child in safe hands and with a clear conscience, so ask how they monitor adult visitors and, once there, check that facilities are safe and hygenic – ask about anything that may appear hazardous. does the timing and location work for me? Find out what the session options are and, with the location in mind, figure out whether the destination and hours are realistic with your daily schedule. Will you be able to park when you get there or will you need to walk some distance? how do kids spend their time? Mental stimulation is key for development, so ask what activities are in place for your child’s age and decide whether you feel he or she will benefit from them. Are there indoor and outdoor facilities there and are you happy with those provided? What are the fees? Term-by-term fees are in place for nurseries across the Dubai, so be sure to do your sums. Who will be caring for my child day-to-day? Gather an understanding of who will be looking after your little one and ask to meet them. What is their childcare background like? Do you like their character? How many staff members are there in relation to the number of pupils?

Our round up of the most desirable gadgets, out now...

Star buy

Robotic Vacuum Cleaner Known as the ‘HOM-BOT 2.0’, this agile little number not only looks great, but its high-tech abilities mean it can sniff out even the most hidden particles of dirt. Its infrared sensors and dual cameras allow it to detect dirt on a multitude of surfaces and shimmy into tricky corners for maximum cleaning and minimal collisions. Snap one up at LG outlets. AED2,199.

Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer The style-concious residents among you are sure to love the pillar-box red matte tone and 1950s look of this funky electrical mixer. The cooks, meanwhile, will favour its equally likeable functions: a tilted headstand makes it easy to manoeuvre, while its planetary action enables thorough mixing (ideal for baking cakes). Shop for it at Galeries Lafayette. AED2,199.

Humidifier Air Purifier The F-VXF35M model comes equipped with a strong suction power (aka the ‘Mega Catcher’), which sucks up dust and air pollutants which lay up to 30cm above the ground. But it’s not just air purification this design promises; it can also delve into fabrics to deodorise unpleasant smells, like tobacco, in clothes. Not just a pretty face... AED2,199, Panasonic.

Candy Gas Cooker If you want to cook up a storm in style, cast your eyes over Candy’s latest cooker. Made in Italy, the compact creation harbours five gas hobs, a simple push-button ignition and 109 litre capacity, making it uber-practical, while its full glass oven door and slick, stainless steel finish means it will look the part in virtually any kitchen space. AED2,699, Eros.

Philips Air Fryer If you’re not quite ready to relinquish calories for the New Year, Philips latest example of ‘Rapid Air’ technology is a guilt-free way to fry: its bulbous, gloss black design can fry foods without using oil (and it looks rather funky too). A timer ensures you won’t burn your dinner, while an included recipe booklet serves as inspiration for your next meal. AED899, galerieslafayette.com

Moving In A go-to guide for those must-have household items.

For white goods... Carrefour is a cheap and cheerful spot in which to pick up white goods in a hurry. (Tip: you’ll also find decent water dispensers here.) Visit its mammoth store in the famous Mall of the Emirates and we promise you won’t leave empty handed... carrefouruae.com Better Life outlets are dotted

across the city and inside you’ll find well-known brands (Siemens, Zanussi, Gigaset) as well as the likes of Smeg (there’s nothing funkier than its block-coloured fridges). betterlifeuae.com Jacky’s Electronics in Deira is another one-stop-shop for major goods, but it’s also super-handy for its kitchen appliances, from meat mincers to coffee makers, so why not shop for those added extras while you’re there? jackys.com
