Marina Crown

Gwenaelle de Bizemont on why city life in Dubai Marina is world-class Words by Laura Binder; images by Nasir Rauf

January 2013


Cover Feature 17

‘When you have teenagers you are a slave to your car, but in Dubai Marina they can entertain themselves – and it’s super safe’

Vietnam, Hong Kong, South Africa, California, New York, Uzbekistan, Switzerland and her native France – Gwen de Bizemont lived in all corners of the globe before spending the past eight years here in Dubai. “I am the true expat mum,” she laughs as we take a tour around her chic 44th-floor apartment. “I have followed my husband all over the world, so my kids have lived in six countries.”

After living in Umm Suqeim for five years and spending two years in Dubai Marina’s Emirates Crown, it’s in Marina Crown – a stone’s throw from the Westin hotel – that she now lives with her 17-yearold daughter, Danae, and from which she orchestrates her interior business Deco Avenue (decoavenue.me) as well as bespoke gift company Gulf Gifts (gulfgifts.ae). So how does life in Dubai compare? “All of the cities I lived in were fabulous,” she says, “but it was one type of life: in so many other cities the suburbs are quite far from the town centre, so you really have to live that suburban life. In Dubai, though, you have everything in one place.” Doubtless, sprawling sea views are an advantage of life in Dubai too – something she and Danae can drink in daily from the apartment’s circular windows. “I think this is the best side of the Marina,” tells Gwen, “there are only six buildings on the seafront and you don’t have the traffic of JBR to deal with. Marina Crown is actually the oldest building on the street, so it’s not the most glamorous, but very soon the road works will be finished and later this year there will be a tram stop right outside, 24/7.” So what made her plump for this apartment over so many others? “Most of the new builds I looked at were 1,000 square feet less than this one and I found all of them very square too, very normal. What I loved about this one was the round windows. It’s a January 2013

kind of V-shape when you come in to the living room, which is very unusual. The apartments in this tower are at diagonals, so it’s kind of funky.” Inside, the apartment is a show of burnt orange, rust, gold and grey hues, forming a unique-yet-glamorous colour scheme – in fact, even the family dog fits in thanks to her rust-tinged coat. “I had beige and red interiors for 20 years and I thought ‘enough’!” laughs Gwen. “I switched all of the red to orange as it’s a warm and happy colour, and all of the beige to grey.” And the secret to her eclectic look is to merge quirky pieces with familiar brand names. “To be honest I have done some essential shopping at THE One and Marina,” she tells. “But there are more and more niche boutiques popping up – Comptoir 102 on Jumeirah Beach Road, which opened in December, and O’de Rose too.” But Gwen insists that her home is a practical pick too – not least for its location which she credits for its locality to great schools, restaurants (from Grosvenor House, Toro Toro and Buddha Bar to Johnny Rockets) and kid-friendly haunts. “I was a typical Jumeirah Jane and loved the Umm Suqeim area,” she says, “but true enough when you have teens you become a slave to your car. Here, though, they really can entertain themselves – it’s super safe and there are so many options for eating and hanging out.” Ask Gwen what the best thing about life in Dubai Marina is though and she’ll tell you: “Pretending I’m in a big city while I’m right next to the sea, right?” We can’t argue with that.

Dubai Marina: 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 a great option for short- or long-term moves. The majority of property is in high rise towers, though, and you won’t find any villas on offer. Apartments range from the basic to the allout luxurious, so you’re sure to find something to suit your style. Each block comes with its own facilities – gyms, saunas and swimming pools are standard fare. The views are what this area is all about: whether you’re after stunning vistas of the towers at night or calming panoramas of the Arabian Gulf, this is the area for you – although be warned, the top spots come at a premium...

This is one of the city’s best districts for entertainment: during down time, head to a Marina-side eatery to watch luxury yachts glide past, recline on the lively JBR beach, or let off some steam on the pedestrian Marina walkway (it’s a favourite haunt of joggers and cyclists). If you’re feeling adventurous, there’s a plethora of watersports at your fingertips: venture to the Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort for parasailing, surfing lessons and banana boating. In the Marina itself, you’ll often see paddle boarders and kayakers too. For the ultimate thrill, head to Skydive Dubai, or soak up the action from a café on The Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residence.

It’s renowned as one of the best ‘bite-sized’ malls in Dubai, and Marina Mall will be right on your doorstep. Inside, you’ll find the likes of high street favourites New Look, H&M, Promod and Koton. There’s a Waitrose supermarket (and a Spinneys just down the road) too. The Marina-side pathway is brimming with restaurants and cafés – we love Baker and Spice, and the quirky Shakespeare and Co for fresh nibbles on a weekend afternoon. Look to JBR for more high-end retail offerings, including the fabulous Boutique 1 for designer shopping, and eateries at The Ritz-Carlton and Sofitel Dubai Jumeirah Beach.

You won’t find any schooling options in the immediate Marina vicinity, but there are a handful of nurseries in the JBR area that will cater to little ones. Try Jebel Ali Village Nursery (jebelalinursery.com) and Fun & Play Nursery (funandplay. ae) for size. Older children will have to venture further afield for school, for example to Wellington International School (British curriculum, wellingtoninternationalschool. com), Emirates International School (International Baccalaureate, eischools.ae), Dubai British School (British curriculum, dubaibritishschool. ae) which are all a 15-20 minute drive away.

Data published by research firm Reidin.com showed that residential mortgage lending hit AED1.18 billion in the third quarter of 2012, up 25 per cent from AED946 million 12 months previously. In the same period, the sales transaction value in Dubai was AED3.25 billion, up from AED2.583 billion twelve months previously. As of Q3 2012, total completed property stock stood at 341,000, and this will rise to 376,000 by Q4 2015. The population has grown, and demand for good housing is on the up.

Triangle fell by 5%. A recent survey by JLL reveals large investments going into incomeproducing assets. These are now preferred over investments in land. The investors are mostly private and family-owned groups rather than institutions. CBRE said that with supply levels becoming increasingly tight in popular community areas, further product launches are anticipated during 2013. Dubai has already announced three multi-billion-dirham projects: Mohammed Bin Rashid City, an AED10 billion entertainment destination in Jebel Ali, and an AED2.5 billion expansion of JW Marriott Marquis, the world’s tallest hotel.

Citigroup has raised the GDP growth forecast for 2012 from 4.5% to 5.1%. Cluttons Middle East Private Capital survey examined the intra-regional investor sentiment, attitude and behaviour of HNWIs based in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Manama, Muscat and Riyadh. The survey put Dubai as the most attractive destination for private investors within the GCC region, with Riyadh and Doha emerging as strong secondary and tertiary target locations. The number of HNWIs looking to invest regionally is 60 per cent higher than in 2011, and that 80 per cent of those surveyed are very likely to make an investment in the region during 2013.

Adrian Popica, Residential Consultant

In the context of a very active real estate market, Dubailand looks like the winning choice for both investors and end users looking for villas. And if you’re looking for an established community with everything within reach, then Arabian Ranches is the best option for you. The rental demand is very strong as the community ranked second in popularity among expatriates in a recent study. Arabian Ranches had a very good fourth quarter in 2012 as the prices are now at the highest since the economic downturn and the demand is still increasing. Ranches is so successful as a project that the developer, Emaar, recently launched Arabian Ranches phase II. January 2013

Vikas Arora, Senior Commercial Consultant

The commercial office market in Jumeirah Lake Towers has seen a mismatch between sellers’ & buyers’ expectations over the last couple of months. Following a rise in the residential property prices over the past one year, and improved market sentiment in the overall residential sector in Dubai, the sellers’ expectations have increased substantially for the sales prices of the offices. This is despite the continued oversupply when compared with demand, and the overall uncertainty in the global economic scenario.

Interiors trends 2013 Ring the changes in the new year by exploring the hottest new trends on the market. Four interior design experts show us how… Ann Hayward, senior visual merchandising manager, Home Centre “The colour palette for 2013 is predicted to be a sophisticated neutral selection. The bright, shocking colours of the last couple of seasons will give way to a more soothing backdrop for this year’s trendy accessories, lighting and furniture. Think sculptural shapes, intriguing textures, luminous finishes and an emphasis on natureinspired motifs (such as feathers) to create opportunities for stylish décor statements in neutral colours. Natural motifs featuring bamboo, shells, stained glass and stone-framed elements are more likely to be trending upwards, rather than plastic elements. Botanicals and insect prints will continue to flourish in popularity. It’s an easy way to bring home that ‘in harmony with nature’ look.

January 2013

Printed wallpaper is also making a big comeback. Bedding that looks like wallpaper is also a good alternative for those a little timid about papering their entire home.” homecentrestores.com Natasha Temple & Dina Dahmash, interior designers, End Design Studio “Just as Aztec prints were very popular last season, this season will see Ikat prints coming to the fore. Whether on a throw, cushion or rug, they can be used to brighten a room. Less is more in the season ahead. In structurally-unusual properties, exposed ceilings are becoming more and more popular, and add a trendy New York loftstyle feel to a space. Wallpaper is coming back this year. Even if you just wallpaper one small wall it can transform the atmosphere of any

room. At the moment, we’re loving the Fornasetti and Cole and Son ranges. enddesignstudio.com John McLennan, managing director, Indigo Living “The New Year will see a continued look at classic and vintage shapes and designs, but they will be reinvented in new colours and different materials. Think of traditional leather club chairs in colourful printed leather or traditional patterns, blown up to almost unrecognisable proportions and used on cushions or furniture panels. Metals will be a mix of mainly bronze, antique gold and tarnished copper, and

‘Think sculptural shapes, intriguing textures, luminous finishes and nature-inspired motifs’ products will feature extra details, such as inlays or metal caps, that will be prevalent. The colour palettes will feature touches of burnt orange, ochre and terracotta. A contrast between black and white will be used as the main colours for this look, but they will be surrounded or framed by neutrals to help create a feeling of calm and serenity. Think of a mix of lattecoloured lacquer furniture on a base of black wooden legs for a more mellow contrast. Palettes and effects will consist of muted tones such as creams, taupes,

plum and indigo colours, alongside warm yellows. Nature has returned to make light and bright in all things related to this trend. Natural fabrics will be prevalent, with bright prints and bold patterns. White washed woods and unfinished surfaces will make for a more sophisticated look,

and tone town the recent salvage style. This look is all about optimism and relaxed comfort.” indigo-living.com Nadine Khoury, managing partner, O’de Rose “One of the standout trends we see making its way into retail in 2013 in both fashion and home interiors and accessories is a mixture of different fabrics and textures to create a quirky adaptation of patchwork chic. Fabrics cut up and sewn back together to create colour blocked or collage effects, or something to create that look, will definitely be noticed in 2013. Nostalgia is making a return, but with a modern twist. We predict that this trend will find itself in traditional, rustic, and vintage furnishings and fabrics mixed with newer, sleeker pieces, as well as in pieces that combine different aspects of retro and modernity to form a unique statement. Bringing colour into your décor is essential for making your home exemplify your personality. The 2013 colour trend we predict is red. It’s a powerful, bold colour that can make a real statement and really transform a space – you will be surprised how a new colour can make a dramatic difference. Try balancing out this powerful shade with a neutral colour.” o-derose.com

I adore my covered balcony, complete with rattan rugs and comfy Ikat cushions – it has the comfort of inside with the benefit of fresh air and chirping birds. I love to do pretty much anything out here – mostly sharing stories with friends or reading all day.

My style is arty and playful – I adore quirky items and classic staples. The Apartment Therapy and Martha Stewart websites are very inspiring. You’ll find everything from vintage photos to kitsch trinkets in my home. I find al Bastakiya such an inspiring place – the mix of old and new is wonderful. I can’t visit the XVA Art Hotel there

‘Art brings your home to life, and helps to demonstrate your personality’ without leaving a pile of fabric to be turned into cushions, throws and tablecloths by the in-house tailor! la galerie nationale in al Quoz is great for picking up one-off pieces, and I love Crate and Barrel for kitchen and dining

a home without art is a sad home… Art brings your space to life, helps to demonstrate your personality and interests, and decorates all those otherwise bland walls. I am currently coveting the classic Womb chair, designed by Eero Saarinen in 1948 – it’s available exclusively from Knoll. I would put it in the living room, for reading and snoozing away a Saturday afternoon.

Until the end of this month, prints from Terry O’Neill’s endless portfolio of iconic Hollywood snaps are available at THE One Fusion, Dubai. Featuring the likes of Frank Sinatra, Faye Dunaway (above), the Rolling Stones and Brigitte Bardot (below), the prints are the perfect way to inject a little Tinsel Town glamour into your otherwise humble abode.

XVA Gallery regularly holds Affordable Art Nights, where you can pick up gallery-quality work for AED4,000 or less. For dates, see xvagallery.com

“All of the stars had their own personality – that’s the secret of great photographs,” reveals Terry. “They were great movie stars, all great characters. Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Junior, Frank Sinatra... They just don’t make guys like that any more.” At home in London (“It will always be home,” says Terry; “I will never move away from England”), the photographer’s style is inspired by his loves. “I don’t have lots of pictures, but I do have lots of music. I play jazz all the time, too – it wouldn’t be a home without music.” theone.com

A new look for the new year: take your pick from these fresh designs

Indigo Living

Natural wonder

Home Centre

January 2013

There’s no better season to revamp your interior design in than spring, and neutral hues and natural materials are perfect for this time of year. This sumptuous sofa set from Indigo Living (above, indigo-living.com) is great for laid-back lounge areas, blending sink-in cosy cushions with polished chrome arm rests and legs. Tie the look together with a vast rattan rug – perfect for softening up cool tiled floors – and a scattering of squishy cushions. Stick to neutral colours to keep the atmosphere calm, and choose cream instead of white to avoid stresses about stains. A selection of potted plants is perfect for incorporating a little more of Mother Nature into the room, but remember to choose non-toxic blooms if you have children running around. Keep wall coverings simple, but add a dash of colour with some stylish frames or mirrors: sepia toned photos or naturally-

themed artwork will work a treat. Finally, cashmere throws are a decadent yet homely accessory to cuddle up with – essential on cool nights.

‘A vast rattan rug is perfect for softening up cool tiled floors’ Cosy corner Before the heat of the summer hits, sink into warm style and comforting furnishings. We love this velvety sofa range from Home Centre (left, homecentrestores.com), with its complementary array of throws, cushions and comforters. Books, curios and photo frames will make the space feel cosier, and you can’t go wrong with dark wood and terracotta hues for a throroughly homely feel. In open-plan layouts, use a room divider to break up the space, and angle furniture towards the warm natural light.

Arty retreat When you’ve got treasures galore to display in your home, you need a living room that can act as a blank canvas. A simple leather couch works like a dream with this set-up, and this cool set with matching freestanding lamp and chromelegged coffee table from Natuzzi at Western Furniture (right, westernfurniture.ae) does the job perfectly. The star of this style is the artwork and curios, of course: create a feature wall by investing in freestanding cabinets and bookshelves to display them to maximum effect. Don’t be afraid to mix it up – after all, nothing makes a statement quite like myriad shapes, colours and materials. If you have canvases or photo frames on display, keep walls neutral: a simple white, stone, or cream matt emulsion will suffice. If you’re on the lookout

Serene space Nothing makes the most of natural light quite like an allwhite design. Perfect for small living areas, or rooms with tiny windows, this classic look is easy to acheive. This corner sofa and simple pouf from Q Home Décor (qhomedecor. com) is a great place to start, although you may think twice if it’ll encounter little sticky fingers. White walls and transculcent linen curtains will accentuate that all-important

light, so keep mounted frames neutral and avoid any large splashes of colour. A few bright soft furnishings won’t go amiss, though – chocolate, gold and natural hues will complement a bare palette. If you’ve unsightly flooring or cold tiles to contend with, splash out on a sumptuous rug, and ensure you have plenty of table lamps for when that natural light fades. Arty curios and a few coffee table books will soften the space, making you feel right at home.

‘We’ve finally given in to our daughter’s pleading and have promised to buy her a kitten or puppy this year. How can we pet-proof our home?’ – The Moattis, Jumeirah Village Triangle prepAre your property Amanda Anderson, managing director, Homely Petz

get the gArden in shApe Segal Nagjee, founder and chief designer, Milestone Landscaping

‘Remove small toys, string, rubber bands and other choking hazards from your pet’s area. Be careful with trash, too: dogs and cats seem to love the smell, taste and texture of it, and will go out of their way to play in it while you’re away. Place bins out of pets’ reach. Cat’s aren’t always as nimble-footed and self sufficient as legend has it: check for places where they can become stuck, such as behind the refrigerator, and seal up those openings. Also, close all toilet seats before you leave the house! Pets enjoy their routines, so if you’re going to be out of the house for an extended period of time, consider hiring a pet sitter to help it stick to its schedule. It is reassuring, and can help to alleviate some of the naughtiness that often leads to catastrophe. A good pet sitter can scan the house for known dangers too. FInally, all pet owners should have a disaster plan for their pets: you should be able to get your animals and their essential items out of the house within five minutes, in case of emergency.” homelypetz.com

“The ingestion of chemical fertilisers can affect animals’ digestive tracts. You should only allow pets in the garden after a certain period of time (or ‘waiting period’) has elapsed: the fertilisers soften and can’t harm pets. Organic treatments don’t have any harmful chemicals, and they meet your plants’ nutritional needs too. Avoid using poisonous plants: azalea, rhododendron and sago palm can cause kidney failure in pets. Oleander, lily of the valley, foxglove, rosebay, jasmine, crab apple, garlic, yew and kalanchoe are also harmful. Garden insecticides can be toxic too – for example: snail baits that contain metaldehyde, systemic insecticides which contain disulfoton or disyston, fly bait containing methomyl, common rat poisons and gopher or mole baits that contain zinc phosphide. Kill ticks and fleas in your lawn with mowing and lawn care. Insects in the grass may cause hair loss, scratching, hot spots and scabs. Ticks can cause diseases like mountain spotted fever and Lyme disease.” landscapingdubai.com

Chef Luis Salgueiro’s career has taken him all over the world, but it’s his home country, Portugal, that remains most dear. Having learned his trade in his family’s restaurant at the tender age of 18, he worked his way up the ladder receiving awards and accolades along the way. Now, he’s ventured to UAE soil for the launch of Picante, the Portuguese destination dining venue at The Four Points by Sheraton Bur Dubai. So what should hungry diners January 2013

expect from the menu? “Portuguese food is light, fresh and flavorsome,” says the chef. “The essence lies in using the freshest and highest quality ingredients, and the dishes are renowned for being rustic and robust.” Cuisine varies by region, according to the produce available locally: “It can be based on the climate, or the proximity to the sea, for example. Menus in coastal regions feature lots of sea food, whereas the inner areas cook mostly vegetables.” Among the essential ingredients for authentic Portuguese fare, Salgueiro notes “local olive oil, fresh garlic and herbs” – and when searching for fresh vegetables, we say head to one of Dubai’s farmers markets. (Check out ripeme.com and bakerandspiceme. com for details.)

200g clams with shells 80ml olive oil 41g salt 30g fresh coriander 30g garlic 40ml lemon juice Pinch of salt and pepper, Cherry tomatoes and fresh coriander, to serve

1. Add half of the salt to 1.5 litres of water in a large bowl, and submerge the clams.

2. After two hours, change the water and add the rest of the salt, then transfer the clams.

3. Peel and finely slice the garlic and roughly chop the coriander. 4. On a medium heat, sauté the garlic in the olive oil until it starts to soften, then add half of the lemon juice, half of the coriander, and season to taste.

5. When the mixture combines, drain the clams and add to the frying pan. Sauté for five minutes. 6. Add the remaining lemon juice and coriander, then cover and cook until the clams open.

7. Check seasoning before dishing up the clams, and serve immediately with the tomatoes and a pinch of chopped coriander.
