Property of the Month Set up home in one of Dubailand’s finest villas

After an abode with more space?

This property, set in one of Dubai’s most popular communities, could be just the ticket. Step inside and you’ll discover an open-plan kitchen and breakfast hall – the perfect place to gather for family meal times – coupled wiith groomed garden views. Upstairs, meanwhile, you’ll have to fight it out for the best of five spacious bedrooms, each of which comes with its own en suite – which means no morning scrabbles for the bathroom. The wider community makes daily routines a breeze, too: explore the pedestrianised area (think landscaped gardens, walking trails, communal parks and pools) and you’ll be met with an array of recreational facilities including a shopping centre and schools (well worth a look if you’re yet to enroll your little one for their first day of term). Sound appealing? Be among the first to view this well-priced villa by calling Better Homes today.

We love this place...

The Meadows

How a beautiful Hattan villa prompted lifelong jet-setters Ruth and Peter Warner to finally settle down… and New York and, like there, people here work very hard and play very hard. In fact, if you didn’t see the local people in their beautiful traditional dress, you wouldn’t know you were in the Middle East – you could be in a cosmopolitan city anywhere in the world and we really like that. What also impresses us is that there’s such a mishmash of people and all of these nationalities live congenially together. Because of that I think you can really gain a lot from the city. Like many other people here, we spend two months outside of Dubai – in our case, in Italy – and while the greenery and landscape is completely different there, by the end of it I always want to come back here and head to a mall where everything I need is in one place. What made you buy a villa in The Meadows rather than anywhere else in the city? We bought it six years ago and at that time it was actually the only area where expatriates could buy properties. We chose the largest we could afford in the area. At the time it was the biggest here but now there are also properties with a third floor. For us, the size is perfect for parties and I love the overall flow of the property and its nice big kitchen where we often socialise with close friends. This plot also backs on to a lake, with Emirates Hills’ mansions beyond it, which gives us an added sense of privacy.

Ruth, tell us what brought you and your husband to the city? It was my husband’s job that brought the two of us here, which was eight years ago now. Prior to this we lived all over the world, including Siberia during the Soviet era, South Korea, the United States and Germany. This is the longest we’ve actually stayed in one place, other than our home countries of the UK and Australia. I never June 2011

thought that I would end up in the Middle East; to me it was this far-flung, exotic place! Having lived all over the world, why did you decide to settle in Dubai? I think it is the very high standard of living that’s kept us here – it’s higher than that in the States in my opinion. People work very hard here as well: I’ve lived in London

How do you find the wider community? It really does have a nice overall feel; we can walk our two dogs and the people who live in the area are very friendly. It also has some great amenities – our maid can stroll to the Meadows Town Centre where she food shops at Spinneys. Plus there’s also a very handy bus service which stops at the British School, goes through the nearby Springs and on to Media City. On top of that, we’re located close to Jumeirah Beach Road which has some great hotels and

restaurants and we’re close to the airport as well. The location is incredibly convenient for getting to different areas of Dubai as well as Abu Dhabi, where my husband works. Is there anywhere locally that you and Peter can go to spend your free time? Absolutely, we’re members of Emirates Golf Club which Peter joined almost as soon as we got here. It has been completely renovated and they have a gorgeous pool, great gym, squash courts, two beautiful courses and a spa which I visit on occasion. We also spend a lot of time at its French restaurant, Le Classique which is just lovely and good value for money. The club also does a super Friday brunch! It plays host to the Desert Classic, too, and it’s wonderful to go along and watch the pros in action. It takes us all of 10 minutes to get there! The property exudes a Colonial style – how did you achieve it? Well, firstly we wanted to make it a real home rather than a show one. We love travelling, learning about different cultures and – as you can see – collecting different pieces from our travels. The Colonial feel comes from our use of wood. Rather than blinds we had white shutters installed throughout by a company called Avenue Home. The rest of the home is a real mishmash of both expensive and cheap pieces. Our dark, heavier wood furniture is from

‘There is such a lovely feel all around the community that it feels as though I’m on vacation all of the time’

June 2011

Warehouse while our more Oriental-style items are from a store called Exotica. We got the idea of the sofas from Emirates Golf Club who have the best Chesterfield sofas – we tried to persuade them to sell them to us but eventually bought this set at the INDEX show – a huge interior design show held at The World Trade Centre each year which is just fantastic and draws the likes of Laurence Llewellyn Bowen. Our other great buy, which added to the look, was our fans. They come from the Hunter Fan Company here in Dubai and the art deco style of those in the living areas works with our white blinds, while upstairs we have a brown, colonial-style one. As I love animals we also picked up some horse drawings by a local artist at Art House. Did you undertake any larger renovations when you moved in? Our kitchen was our biggest job. The original was made up of very dark wood which felt quite oppressive and impossible to keep looking clean! As I love to cook I had always had a vision of my dream kitchen: a large island and breakfast bar for entertaining with high gloss white and black granite. I met with Under One Roof after they were recommended by a friend and they created just that. The team is British and I found I could relay the exact look and feel I was after and

they grasped exactly what I meant, while lending their technical expertise. As all of their men, from plumbers to electricians, are employed directly by them I could also liaise with the relevant person easily. All in all, including gutting the entire space and installing new plumbing, it took three to four weeks to complete and I got my dream kitchen! It sounds like you’re here to stay! What would you say is the best thing about life in The Meadows? Its location is a huge plus but the feel here is also so pleasant: neighbours say hello, there are footie matches in the park, people walking their dogs or babies in pushchairs. There are some super schools here, too. We don’t have children but it’s lovely to see kids come home from school and be able to play on their bikes like I used to do as a child. In some places in the UK now you just can’t allow your children to do that and feel comfortable that they’ll be safe. Finally, I love the greenery. Every community has its own park and pool and there are is an array of shops close by that I visit regularly, from Spinneys to Tips and Toes and Shakespeare’s – a café that’s great for lunch or picking up tasty bread. There is such a lovely feel all around the community that it feels as though I’m on vacation all of the time I’m here!

Love Thy Neighbourhood

The Meadows

We bring you the lowdown on daily life in Dubai’s villa-strewn community Renting and buying Set off Sheikh Zayed Road, your drive into this popular community will take you through tree-lined streets, past manicured pathways and amid lush greenery. The Meadows community forms part of the prestigious Emirates Living district, along with Emirates Hills, The Springs and Jumeirah Islands. When it comes to the properties themselves, would-be buyers and leeses can choose between two-storey homes and villas with three to seven bedrooms. Such spacious surrounds makes The Meadows a hit with families, and parents will be pleased to discover ample parking space, private gardens and personal swimming pools (for some villas), which means you won’t have to stray far for a fine quality of family life.

Shopping and a bite Make a beeline for the centre of the community and you can pick up daily must-haves at Meadows Village or the Meadows Town Centre. The former is home to a modest Spinneys – ideal for a quick-fix shop – and a Costa Coffee for a caffeine stop. The latter, meanwhile, boasts an array of shops and cafes, including a large Spinneys for bigger food shops (alternatively, make for Choithram supermarket in the neighbouring Springs). And, if you have little ones in tow, why not treat them to a cooling bite at the centre’s Haagan Daaz Cafe? If you’re looking for a fancier dinnertime venue close to home, though, you’re in luck: The Meadows plays host to the fabulous fivestar Address Montgomerie Dubai, home to a handful of quality eateries. One of which is Nineteen (04 363 1275), a musttry for Friday brunch (its views across the golf course provide a beautiful backdrop to multiple courses). Le Classique (04 380 2222) at the nearby Emirates Golf Club, meanwhile, is a decadent French fine dining spot headed by award-winning chef Francois Porte. June 2011

Leisure time Hayya! at Meadows Village (www.hayya. ae) is the ideal place for residents to try their hands at an array of activities. The members’ club offers tennis and squash courts along with a gym or, for those who prefer to wind down on their time off, a swimming pool, sauna and steam room. Like golf? Then you’ll love the Majlis championship course at Emirates Golf Club (www.dubaigolf.com), conviniently located just around the corner...

Schooling A number of quality schools in the area will make parents’ lives that bit easier. For a UK cirriculum visit the Dubai British School (www.dubaibritishschool.ae) in the Springs or try the international GEMS (www.gemsworldacademy.com), just a five-minute drive away. Other popular picks include The Dubai International Academy (www.diadubai.com) and Emirates International School (www. eischool.com).

Ask tHE AgEnt tOM BunkEr, invEstMEnt sAlEs cOnsultAnt, HEAD OfficE Palm Jumeirah continues to be one of Dubai’s favorite property developments. As with other communities, The Palm lost a great deal of its value during the crisis, but since then it has recovered at least half of what it lost. Prices appear to be on the rise but there are still great deals to be found. Tenants looking to buy an apartment can expect to pay on average: 1.5-1.7M (1bd), 2-2.5M (2bd), 3-3.5M (3bd); while sales rates for villas are on average: 4.5-5M (3bd), 7.5-8.5M (4bd), 9–13M (5bd). Property prices change frequently. Please visit bhomes.com for the most up-to-date pricing.

Ever wondered what’s lurking in the air you breathe? We spend more than 90% of our lives indoors and more than 99% of our body’s daily intake is air, yet we rarely think about the quality of the air we breathe. So how do you ensure the air you and your family breathe is as clean as it should be? Switch on an Airfree® Air Purifier. Using patented TSS™ technology, Airfree® draws in impure air, heats it to 410°F/200°C to remove micro-organisms in the air, then releases the purified, cooled air back into the room 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Tested in real-life conditions by independent labs, our technology is safe and completely natural.

What’s more, Airfree® is compact, runs in complete silence and does not use any chemicals, ions or ozone. More importantly, it's entirely maintenance-free for the life of the unit, which means no cleaning required, no costly filters or UV light bulbs to replace, and it consumes less power than a 50W light bulb, making it very cost effective to use. Families in over 50 countries around the world have discovered the difference Airfree® Air Purifiers can make to their overall quality of life. Now it’s your turn to breathe in clean air.

THE SAFE AND NATURAL WAY TO REMOVE AIRBORNE GERMS & ALLERGENS C u sto m e r C a re : 8 0 0 - A I R F R E E ( 2 4 7 3 7 3 3 ) o r e - m a i l - a i r f re e @a m a n co r p . n e t

News, views and ideas to help style your home We can’t think of a more stylish way to light up our lobbies than with this gorgeous handmade creation from Barovier & Toso’s latest lighting collection. The Italian company is the oldest glass manufacturer in Italy and spins its gorgeous Venetian glassware on the island of Murano. Luckily, though, you won’t have to travel that far to buy one of your own: Dubai boutique Modula-Conceptio has scooped the entire collection for its Jumeirah Beach Road store. www.modula-conceptio.com

My favourite room at home is… our breakfast/ dining room. It’s where all of my family come together and chat. It also turns into my creative workspace at times and is the place I entertain friends with my exotic home-cooked dishes. My most-loved item at home is… My photo albums – my true treasures! Every time we look through them they always make me laugh. In my opinion, no home should be without… colour and sunshine. I currently have my eye on… a graphic black and white carpet at Crate & Barrel and a gorgeous turquoise pottery platter at THE One. O’De Rose on Al Wasl Road www.o-derose.com

Its presence makes Dubai the second city to Hong Kong to host a flagship store by the interior brand and, when you do visit, make sure to wear comfy shoes: inside there’s some 7, 500square feet to trawl, flanked by high-end bedding, statement furniture and stylish accents. Parents should keep their eyes peeled for The Indigo Kids furniture range, too, which is set to go on sale in a new Just Kidding store, due to open next door later this month.

Wish You Were Here? If you have no plans to escape the summer heat, holiday at home instead with our tips on how to turn your pad into a pleasure zone

Make a picnic rug with your children: choose fabrics together and sew squares into a patchwork quilt style. Bring it out at meal times too – or whenever the holiday mood takes you. Shop for deckchairs – surely the very essence of summer holidays on the beach? Hunt for classic striped designs for a cool and funky finish – you could even paint the wood in a jaunty hue for added individuality. And, if the Brits among you really want to capture the essence of childhood holidays, why not set up chairs outside and order a classic feed of fish and chips?

If life gives you lemons… make lemonade! Make the best of the searing season by rustling up homemade drinks. How? Simply squeeze one lemon into a chilled pint glass, add one pint of cold water (still or sparkling) and add sugar to suit your taste. Stir it until the sugar has dissolved, fill the glass with crushed ice and serve. Deliciously refreshing. Buy a bunch of flowers – the prettier and the wilder the better. Choose sweetlyscented blooms (like sweet peas) or create a country garden look by arranging cow parsley, grasses, silk poppies, daisies and cornflower in a zinc bucket or glass jars – they may not be freshly plucked from your garden, but they’ll certainly look it! Host a garden party for friends or neighbours who are also spending the summer in town and kick start it in the afternoon when temperatures dip. A fete theme is a fab, child-friendly choice. To achieve it, arrange homemade lemonade June 2011

on garden tables and ask guests to bring home-baked bites like treats-of-themoment cupcakes and macaroons, eaten against a backdrop of garden games: visit Carrefour for budget buys like hula hoops, skittles and paddling pools. Take a soak in a hammam – and we don’t mean with a visit to the spa. Recreate the Turkish tradition in your own home by buying fragrant soaps or bath salts and a body brush. And don’t stop there; make your own body scrub using sea salt and lavender: simply fill a jar with 200g of ground sea salt, 60g of lavender flowers and top it with olive oil. You’ll have summer-soft skin in no time. Create an image of your best holiday with a moodboard. Simply gather your favourite snapshots, postcards and any lasting memorabilia from the trip, arrange on a piece of card and frame it for all to see. Add handwritten notes or pressed flowers for an added sense of place.

Celebrate Midsummer Day aka the ‘middle of summer’. It falls on June 24 and we think it’s a great excuse for a party. Make like the Scandinavians do by marrying floral garlands, singing and dancing with ice cold beverages and serve a tasty finale in the form of European summer dishes (think summer salads, smoked salmon with potatoes and dill and simple yet sweet desserts like strawberries and cream). Be a bookworm. If you’re known for sticking your nose in a book while on holiday, why break the habit of a lifetime? Take time out in true vacationing time and recline with a fine read in a comfy spot at home. Pack a picnic at the weekend – even if it is too hot to eat it outside. We say, pack an old-fashioned picnic basket (or wicker beach bag) chockfull of homemade sandwiches and cakes and make for your favourite room in the house – a great alternative to a standard lunch. Just remember to wash it down with lashings of ginger beer.

Breathe in scented sheets by adding lavender water to your iron or spray bottle before ironing the bedsheets. You should be able to find the water in all good health stores and not only will it ooze a summer meadow scent but help lead you in to a relaxed sleep on balmy nights. Make a playlist on your iPod containing all of your favourite summer hits, old and new. Get your family or friends involved too and play it whenever you hit a spot of nostalgia and need a summer pick-me-up. Create a rainbow in your home by placing myriad hanging crystals or coloured glassware by a sunny window and make use of Dubai’s relentless rays. Kids are sure to love it, too. Light up your garden for summer house parties. It’s super-easy to do and needn’t cost the earth. Those on a budget can fill old jam jars or tumblers with tea-lights and place them all around their outdoor space. Line them along steps, pools or pathways for a magical look come nightfall. Have a movie night. If you can stand the heat, get out of the lounge and set up a projector in your garden – just hang a

sheet from a clothes line and roll classic holiday movies on the makeshift screen. Best watched on deck chairs with oodles of ice cream and ice-cold lemonade. Create a beach scene – if you’re not lucky enough to have a villa on The Palm with your own stretch of private beach why not have fun making your own instead? Invest in an oversized sandpit or buy bags of natural sand (visit the city’s hardware stores), position deckchairs and, if you need it, get a paddling pool in place. Beach ball optional! Make an ice cream cocktail. After all, who doesn’t love indulging in ice cream when on holiday? Spice up basic vanilla by making your own cassis. Mix 500g of blackcurrants with one litre of water, boil the mix until it’s mushy in consistency and then strain through a sieve. Next, add sugar, measure for measure, to the liquid. Boil for three minutes, bottle and seal. Just relax. If you’re here for the duration maximize simple seasonal pleasures to feed your need for a holiday: savour strawberries, blue skies, cool pools, buy a box set and hibernate for the summer season until autumn rolls in…

We round up the city’s crème de la crème in kitchen design so you can cook up a storm in style – or just play hostess…

1

CheCk Mate

Kitchens surely don’t get much slicker than the new Checkers collection, an exclusive line by Armani/ Dada (we hear it takes up residence in the Burj Khalifa’s Armani residences). Bold checks in chessboard monochrome are a great pick for those who crave a cool backdrop to entertaining at home. But, the design’s clean lines and simple base is also practical: designed with larger spaces in mind, it’s a perfect fit for Dubai’s spacious, modern villas and apartments. Who knew using the kitchen could prove such a pleasure? Get the Look… Buy Checkers by Armani/Dada at Finasi. Visit www.finasi.ae

Geometrical shapes make for super-functional kitchen spaces

FrenCh FanCy

If vintage finishes and a healthy dose of opulence is your cup of tea, abandon clean lines and look to ornate details and soft hues instead – and don’t be afraid to swap simple kitchen spotlighting for drop-jewel chandeliers. We love Solico’s ‘Dancing Maidens’ design for its unashamed embrace of excess: antique hand-carvings, carved pilasters and cabriole feet combine to make the most indulgent kitchen islands. But, it’s more than just a pretty picture; islands make a practical and sociable spot around which to create a meal or perch atop a stool for a coffee and chat. What a start to the day… Get the Look… Buy Dancing Maidens (pictured) at Solico, Jebel Ali. Visit www.solicouae.com

Colour Fix Add playful products to classic kitchen designs for a fun finish

Think Pink It doesn’t get more retro than this SMEG fridge. Pick from pink, orange, red or even Union Jack prints – a fab addition to basic rooms. (Buy it at Better Life stores).

Less is More

Prefer your kitchen to be fuss free? This stainless steel design could be the recipe for success. Designed by bespoke German brand Eggersmann, its ‘less is more’ motto manifests itself into functional yet futuristic designs with a focus on the bare essentials. But if the stainless steel finish is a little too minimalist for your taste take another tip from the designer’s book and team it with a softer material (seen here with its wood features) and you’ll have a userfriendly finish that stands out from the cookery crowd. Get the Look… Find Eggersmann kitchen collections at B5 The Art of Living, Sidra Tower, Sheikh Zayed Road. Visit www.b5living.com

U-tUrn

Pedini

If entertaining is high on your list of priorities, an open-plan kitchen with a standout island is the perfect concoction for rustling up bites and beverages as you chat. Modern Italian kitchen designer, Pedini, has the art down to a fine tee. We love its U-turn shaped island which, with a flick of its tail, incorporates everything a kitchen-user could need, from hot plates and dual sink to curved cabinets and hidden plate storage. And as if that wasn’t enough to whet your appetite, its high gloss finish – and availability in myriad colours – most certainly will. Just add funky bar stools! Get the Look… Pedini is available exclusively at Rono Interiors, Sheikh Zayed Road. Visit www.ronointeriors.com

ScArlET FEvEr This bright red Gaggia design can’t fail to perk you up when brewing your morning coffee. A beautiful caffeine fix for kitchen counters. (Find it at all good electrical outlets).

DArling BuDS Who can refuse to cook with a design like this? La Cornue’s French-style cooker comes in myriad hues but we can’t resist its pretty floral print. (Buy it at Carpe Diem showroom, Jumeirah Beach Road).

Signed, Sealed Delivered Want to hire a professional to do the hard work for you? Albert Lopez of Interem (www. freightsystems.com ) shares his advice... Moving in the UAE? Request at least three months of references for local work so you can be sure of a quality service. A professional company should also conduct a quality, pre-move survey to establish your needs.

Practical solutions for your household dilemmas

How Do I… Move home with ease? seven steps to smart packing

1

Fantastic Four If you’re packing yourself, you’ll need a few essential tools: cardboard boxes, scissors, parcel tape and markers. Gather boxes from your local supermarket – and always pick up more than you think you’ll need.

2

Box clever Resist the urge to cram boxes chockfull of mixed items. Don’t put more in one box than you can comfortably lift and always label, label, label: mark the room the box is destined for on the top and a note on its contents on the side and it will be a breeze when you reach the other side.

3

iF in douBt… throw it out. Take the opportunity to bin anything you haven’t used in years – chances are you won’t in your new home, either – and send unused or old children’s toys to a better home or charity.

4

to market If you’re planning to replace your current furniture, why not have a garage sale before the off? Not only

will you rid unwanted pieces but you’ll make some extra cash to spend on your new abode in the process.

5

Family aFFair Packing can be super-stressful; but it needn’t be. The more hands on deck you have, the quicker the job will get done. Involve kids by letting them pack their toys – they’re sure to enjoy drawing on the boxes. Play music, have treats to hand and once you’re all boxed up, it will feel like a real team effort.

6

time For tea? You’re sure to want a break when you reach your new destination, so keep a separate box with a kettle, jar of coffee, tea bags, milk, mugs and bottled water to hand and stay refreshed for the task ahead: unpacking.

7

take your time It’s ok not to unpack everything as soon as you arrive. But, if you do one thing, make sure to set up your bed and black out curtains. No matter how tired you are, you’ll be glad you did.

The cost can vary greatly from place to place and depending on the amount of work being undertaken but you can expect a two-bedroom property to cost from AED2,500 and the price to increase with the property’s size. The service isn’t just about shifting boxes from one place to another. A professional relocation company will estimate the time the move will take, provide the materials required (i.e. packaging paper, bubble, cartons for fragile or heavy items etc) and manpower who will mark, carry and load at either end as well as know what items go in which room or cupboard. Allow two or three days for a complete move from door to door. An extra day is always allowed to ensure the job is conducted without a slip up. Each company has different standards. At Interem, we always use specialised materials for household moves, such as blanket wrap for expensive furniture or antiques; acid free tissues for silverware; and special absormatic poles to absorb any moisture caused by the climate.

Treat your dad this Father’s Day with one of the hottest men-friendly products on the market...

Star buy

Denon Home Theatre System, AED1,999

Is there any dad who doesn’t enjoy some quiet time at home – and control of the remote? He’ll be in his element with a lazy day and Denon’s latest all-out entertainment system (quote Denon DHT1311XP at Emax outlets) at his fingertips. Push the boat out and you’ll gift wrap 5.1 channel surround sound, 3D technology and High Definition images.

Canon IXUX 105 For snap-happy fathers, this cool little number in copper brown is sure to bring a smile to his face. It’s the latest design from Canon’s quality range of snappers and its slim design will even fit in his pocket. Top features include flash exposure, face and motion detection (ideal for families who can’t keep still in front of the lens) and creative shooting modes that will make him feel like a pro. AED549. June 2011

Panasonic ER217S Hair and Beard Trimmer If you’re after a more modest gift, but one that’s no less useful, head to Emax and pick up this nifty trimmer. Its durable Hard Diamond Coating and LED indicators make it far cooler than his current razor plus a rechargeable battery ensures he won’t ever be caught out with an unkempt look. Practical and handy; we think it’s a cut above the rest. AED169.

Packard Bell ‘EasyNote’ Technology giant Packard Bell has just unleashed its latest ‘unique, stylish and distinctive products’ to the Middle East and we think its new EasyNote notebooks are just the ticket for techno-friendly dads. Top points go to its trio of designs which can be bought to best fit his lifestyle: choose from the 14inch for compact carrying; 15.6inch for daily computing and the 17.3inch for at home. AEDTBC.

Navigon 8410 Whether he cares to admit that his sense of direction leaves something to be desired or not, we think this digital navigator is a must for cars and a can’t-fail means with which to master Dubai’s motorways. But, best of all has to be its compatibility with maps from any country and navigation in any language, making it a product for life. AED1,699.
