This spacious three bedroom apartment is set in a beautiful location, on the trunk of the world famous Palm Jumeirah. Inside you’ll find an open plan kitchen – which opens out onto an expansive living area – along with maid’s quarters on the basement level and your own private parking. The bathroom boasts his and hers twin basins, while all rooms are finished with tasteful dark brown skirting boards and curved window frames for an Arabic touch. Not only that, but inside the bedrooms you’ll find neatly fitted wardrobes. Take a look outside, meanwhile, and you’ll behold sea views along with city skylines in the form of JBR and the Dubai Marina’s skyscrapers. You won’t be far away from daily amenities or leisure facilities here, either. Shop in the nearby Milk and Honey for gourmet groceries or spend a day at Atlantis The Palm swimming with dolphins and throttling along slides at its water park.

We love this place...

The Palm

Jessica and Tom Hudson share an inside look at their Fairmont Palm Residence apartment. We sit down for a chat with the lady of the house... Images by Oliver Doran

Jessica, tell us what brought you to Dubai in the first place? I was actually brought up in Dubai as a baby. My parents moved here in the 1970s when none of what you see today was here; it was just the Creek and Jumeirah. They were quite young and had just got married, my dad was an architect and everyone thought they were mad moving to the desert. However, they loved it; my Dad would go to work everyday by abra along Dubai Creek. They became members of the Dubai Sailing Club when I was young and a lot of their friends from those days have stayed here all this time. My parents moved back when I was at university and my husband and I then decided to try it out for six months and loved it too! We’ve just ended up staying on longer and longer... September 2011

Why did you decide to live on The Palm? We used to live in Jumeira but my husband’s job moved and prompted us to look at The Palm. I fell in love with the place as soon as we saw it, we felt like we were at the One&Only Royal Mirage all of the time. We came to view the Fairmont Palm Residences and the lovely pool was all lit up. We looked at a few different apartments in the complex, but this one just seemed so cool because you could walk straight out to the garden and pool, so they feel like your own. In the mornings I often have Pilates classes there. None of the residents have to worry about maintaining the gardens, either, as that’s all done for you. Pets are welcome, too, as are kids – there’s a children’s area and a


Cover Feature

pool with lifeguards. There’a also property sizes to suit all families, from one to threebed apartments or townhouses. It’s just my husband and I here so we have one master bedroom, a guest’s bedroom – which we use as a study – and a maid’s room. What kinds of residents do you find are attracted to the area? There’s a real mixture, with a lot of people having bought property here as a second home. There are a lot of young expat professionals with small children, too. For us it’s great as Tom travels a lot with his job and when I’m here alone I always

‘I fell in love with the place as soon as we saw it, we felt like we were at the One&Only Royal Mirage...’

feel very safe. It’s serviced if you want help, so a porter helps me with my bags, dry cleaning, booking a taxi, catering or housekeeping, it can all be arranged. The concierge is also available 24 hours. It’s nice when friends come over and stay as it feels like they aren’t being left on their own if you have to go to work, there’s always someone here to help. You currently rent, but would you consider buying in Dubai? Because my husband’s work is very much Middle Eastern-based it does seem crazy to spend so much on rent when we could have bought, but I feel lucky that we didn’t decide to buy five years ago before the crash. I love the fact that the apartments here are light and spacious and the kitchens are all brand new so we’d consider buying while the prices are good. Are there any drawbacks to living here? The beach is not yet finished, it was supposed to be open last year, and you have to drive everywhere – if you like to walk then I would say this part of town may not be for you. Also there are no supermarkets nearby except a Milk and

15

Honey, which is great but expensive. If you were to buy here there’s also the issue of a service charge, which is in the region of AED80-90,000 on top of your initial costs. How do you spend your leisure time in the area? There are great spas around here, like Sensasia on the shoreline and for a real treat I love the One&Only Royal Mirage spa, it’s called ESPA. If you go for a massage there you can pamper yourself for the whole afternoon and use the pools and loungers. Atlantis on the Palm is also a


16

Cover Feature

great venue for playing tennis. Otherwise we tend to have friends over and sit by the pool or go to the health club, we really feel like we’re on holiday here. Where would you go to grab a bite? West 14 is just next door and easy to walk to, they do great steaks and there’s a fun lounge in Oceania too. Their pool is also open to guests but I find that ours is a lot more private and there’s a lot of space. We also like to go to 101 Lounge at the new One&Only The Palm, it’s beautiful. Back to your apartment; how did you create your interior look? I really like the Nordic style of cream and beige tones and light wooden pieces. A lot of the wood here in Dubai is very dark Arabic wood, which can look great, but when you’ve got a flat it’s nice to keep tones

‘....in Oman we found a fab old chest as we were rummaging around a souk’ light so you feel as though you have more space. The traditional rugs you see are from the Grand Bizarre and the turquoise table cloth we picked up in Damascus. My husband Tom is very patriotic so there’s a British theme dotted around, like our Union Jack corner trunk and polo memorabilia. While on a camping trip in Oman we also found a fab old chest while rummaging around a souk; it’s really old and I like the fact it’s not glitzy. The elephant dishes on our dining room table are from Sri Lanka – there’s an amazing shop in Colombo called Paradise Road which has lovely fabrics and hand carved homely things, it’s all really beautiful. Where do you shop here in Dubai? I love Pottery Barn, my cushions are from there. I bought a big rug from there as well and their latest collection has a really nice shell design. Flamant in Mall of the Emirates is also lovely; I have my eye on an oldie turquoise chest there at the moment. You have a striking piece of art on your wall; what’s the story behind it? The piece behind our dining room table is by an artist called Amartey Golding, who we met three years ago when he was only 18 and in Dubai doing an exhibition (my Dad is a massive fan of his). This photographic look was part of his latest show. It reminded me of the fact I’m always packing up and travelling – I feel like I’m a bit of a nomad sometimes as I’m always away. The piece is meant to be about identity, as he is half Ghanaian and half Jamaican, yet born in Hackney. When he goes to Ghana he doesn’t feel like he fits in there and when he’s in England he’s not sure he fits in there either. It’s about him searching for where his home really is and delivers the message that, actually, your soul is your home and wherever you go you bring your home with you.

Love Thy Neighbourhood

The Palm

All you need to know about living on the trunk or fronds of this luxurious tree-shaped island Renting and buying

The manmade island brings would-be residents a plethora of beachside villas (with up to six bedrooms and maid’s quarters), which line its alphabeticallynamed fronds and look out over azure waters. Apartments, meanwhile, set up home along the ‘trunk’ of The Palm and flat-hunters can choose from one to four bed properties. Choose an abode on the Golden Mile and you’ll be privy to sweeping views which stretch across to JBR, Dubai Marina and the Burj Al Arab. What’s more, wherever you set up home, all residences come with parking. Newer complexes, meanwhile, such as the Fairmont Residences (seen in our cover interview) also offer groomed gardens and a communal swimming pool.

Shopping and a bite For everyday groceries the Australian gourmet store Milk & Honey

September 2011

(milkandhoney.ae) offers great quality products, imported from across the globe, in the form of fresh cheeses, meats and preserves, everyday vegetables and baked goods. Alternatively, spend your dirhams at Carrefour, located a short drive from The Palm and opposite The One&Only Royal Mirage hotel, or Spinneys in Dubai Marina. If it’s a more luxurious shop you had in mind, head to the famous Atlantis the Palm (atlantisthepalm.com) hotel where you can peruse its high-end shopping arcade, filled with men’s and women’s fashion stores with exquisite jewellery, accessories, swimwear and souvenirs and brands like Harry Winston, Tiffany & Co. and Porsche Design.

Leisure time Dining options are endless here. Drive to the end of The Palm, turn left on to the West Crescent and you’ll soon reach the new Jumeirah Zabeel Saray (jumeirah. com) and – past this and further still

– the One&Only The Palm (thepalm. oneandonlyresorts.com). The former hotel is home to myriad restaurants and lounges, including Imperium for those after French fare or Lalezar for authentic Turkish bites, while One&Only offers the hopelessly cool seaside eatery 101 (a must for Mediterranean fare) as well as the decadent STAY and chilled-out Zest, all created by Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alléno. Drive on to The Palm’s East Crescent, meanwhile, and you’ll be heading straight for the famous archway of Atlantis The Palm (atlantisthepalm. com), home to award-winning eateries like Nobu, to name but one. If you crave succulent steaks, though, West 14th (west14th.ae) at Oceana Beach Club is the place to go: fine cuts are served in a New York-style eatery that overlooks an illuminated pool. By day, families will love Aquaventure water park where you can shoot down a multitude of flumes or even swim with dolphins. If you’d rather stay on dry land, meander through the winding passageways of The Lost Chambers and view 65,000 marine animals. For a more adult afternoon, venture to the One&Only Private Spa (it’s set amid courtyards, ponds and fountains) or Jumeirah Zabeel Saray’s Talise Ottoman Spa – surely one of the largest in the city. Want to keep yourself occupied at more casual hangouts? Stay put and you’ll be pleased to find coffee shops, cafes, lounges (like Bidi Bondi’s) and gyms all peppered amid the plaza levels of The Palm’s apartments.

Schooling Families will be pleased to know Wellington International School (wellingtoninternationalschool.com), owned by GEMs Education, is within close proximity and offers primary, secondary and advanced level education. Head to nearby Media City, meanwhile, and you’ll find the American University of Dubai (aud.edu), Dubai College (dubaicollege.org ) and the University of Wollongong (uowdubai.ac.ae). Fancy a day out on The Palm? Turn to page 43 for your chance to win four tickets to Aquaventure, a VIP cabana and lunch.

Describe your own home style It’s a fresh and modern mix of designer items, antiques and unique pieces that I’ve acquired during my travels through Asia and the Middle East. I like my house to breathe so there’s a lot of white combined with mauve, hot pink, yellow and grey accents. In the kids’ rooms I keep it classic with gingham in blue or pink mixed with knitted blankets and pure linen fabrics. Where do you shop for interior bits? When in the UAE I keep an eye out for interesting items at O’de Rose boutique on Al Wasl Road, XVA Gallery in Bastakia (it’s great for art) and I just love Flamant for furniture. I also create my own by painting old chairs or buying beautiful fabrics to cover them with. Your favourite room at home is… My bedroom, I just love the mix of shades of grey, white and pink and the view across to the Burj Al Arab lit up at night. My most loved pieces are... Two rocking chairs that I bought in Cuba, I had to dismantle them to bring them to Dubai and rebuild them again. In Cuba people believe that you need two chairs on the front porch to find inner peace.

The Psychology of Colour We find out what the most popular shades on the paint palette actually symbolise and how they can affect your life at home... to complement brown without making it appear darker. orange The colour of wisdom and joy went out of fashion in the seventies, but the Swedish designers of today have managed to bring it back. Orange works well in living rooms where it evokes a bright and breezy look, yet less well in bedrooms where it serves as a stimulating colour, like red, making it harder to relax. Wherever you use it, be sure to apply it to a well-lit room; orange can make spaces appear smaller.

Blue Officially the world’s favourite colour, blue hues are associated with loyalty, trust and intelligence (great when used in your study) but can also be synonymous with sadness and loneliness. When applied in a room, blue can evoke a feeling of calm in much the same way as when you’re near a large body of water, be it the ocean, a pool or waterfall. Just one tip; avoid decorating welcoming areas, such as hallways, in too pale a blue as it can give off a frosty vibe. red Coming in at number two on the world’s top colour charts, the rouge hue is associated with adventure, positivity, energy, danger and passion. The best place to use it is in dining rooms to stimulate conversation and sociable behaviour. However this colour is also thought to induce headaches so try to avoid applying it to areas of relaxation. September 2011

Yellow Happy and energetic, yellow can’t fail to make you smile – yet too much can prove irritating. As it is not considered a restful tone, it can enhance feelings of emotional distress so avoid using yellow in main rooms and try bold accents in your kitchen instead.

‘Red is associated with adventure, positivity, energy, danger and passion’ Brown The colour of the earth, this neutral hue is said to promote a sense of warmth and dependability. Brown hit its peak in the popularity stakes in the 50s and 60s but today it can be seen to clash with other colours. Choose the tone of your furniture wisely, try a green or blue hue

green Evoking a natural ambience, this is the colour of balance, harmony and energy and is great when mixed with other shades of green. Use it in your bedroom or bathroom to muster up a relaxing mood. Don’t overdo your application of this hue in spaces where you need to be alert, though – like the kitchen – as it can make you complacent. Add a stimulating colour, like orange or red, to lift your mood. white Associated with purity, innocence and cleanliness, white can feel fresh or cold like a snowy day. Give white walls plenty of light to make them come alive as when applied in a dark space it can appear grey or dingy. Though this shade will work in every room in the house, be sure to add a colour accent to avoid rooms looking washed-out or clinical. PurPle The royal colour signifies creativity and spirituality but can be the hardest hue of all to decorate with if the undertone is wrong (when it can appear too blue or red). However, done right, it can be a meditative shade – the more violet it appears the more relaxing it will be, making it ideal for a sitting room, bedroom or bathroom.

Colour Me HappY

Paint pots at the ready? Before you take your first dip, Maria Killam of Maria Killam Colour & Design (colourmehappyblog.com) shares her expertise on myriad hues... The colours in our rooms can be extremely mood altering, more people should hire a colourist or designer even just for a consultation to arrive at those they love and to see which shades can pull a space together. Without a designer, most people gravitate to the current ‘trendy’ neutral and then wonder why they still aren’t happy in their space. With the shaky economy, consumers are sticking to neutrals such as grey, green, blue and white to play it safe. I conduct online colour consultations all over the US and Canada and my clients have gone off earthy tones. At the moment everyone seems to want to eradicate them from their homes and replace them with these cooler neutrals. Consumers generally follow such trends, even over their own likes and dislikes. Our taste always changes with age. Children are always attracted to fun and bright colours where as teenagers are often attracted to black because it’s like

a shelter for them, as well as a statement of independence. We tend to tone our choices down as we become adults as we lose the ability to see colour as clearly and return to more primary tones. The biggest colour mistake you can make at home is to just splash any old colour on an empty room. The shade you pick needs to relate to the furniture in the space. People get so excited when I show them how a paint colour can look great with their sofa, art, or duvet cover. So think ahead before putting roller to paint. To achieve the right colour never test it by painting swatches on the middle of the wall at eye level. Paint it on a poster board which you can move around. Hold it vertically on the wall beside the tile, behind your sofa or behind your duvet cover, whichever area is relevant – these are the colours your walls should complement, not your current wall colour. You don’t have to use a different hue in every room. If you can’t decide what colour to do a guest room, for example, move through your house and see which shades you have. Ask yourself if there is an existing hue which will work well rather than pick a new one. This will help create a theme throughout the house.

IKEA have a knack for creating ultra practical rooms and this dual bedroom concept – where the room is divided by a curtain – is just the ticket for siblings sharing a bedroom. Split the room with a partition or curtain and decorate each side in a different style to give the child a sense of individuality. Boys can’t fail to love IKEA’s cabin beds (pictured) where they can clamber, climb and hide before lights off, while a couch positioned beneath it creates an area for kids to hang out – or set the scene for a bedtime story. Bring plain rooms alive with splashes of colour, from colourful rugs to oversized toys (we love the ladybird stool). Get the look: From IKEA, ikeauae.com

Practical solutions for your household dilemmas

How do I... revamp my old furniture? five ways to create signature pieces in your home

1

Cover a Chair Take off the old seat cover and unpick the stitching from the cushion. Then put the cover face down and place your new fabric over the top and draw around the edge before cutting it out. To stop the cover fraying, run a zigzag stitch around the outside or put tape around the edges. Next, place your cover over the chair cushion and attach it to the base with a staple gun and, hey presto, a newly revamped chair.

2

age a Cabinet For a truly unique piece of furniture with an on-trend vintage look, try this easy technique. Buy some brown shoe polish and smear it all over your chosen item (note: this should be real wood not chipboard). Work it into the exterior paint coating using a brush. In areas where you’d usually see aging – for example the feet or handles – rub candle wax or Vaseline to soften the wood and then paint over the entire surface (including the waxy area). When dry, wipe the wax off gently with tissue and you’ll see the polish come through the paint. Next, spray the surface in areas of your choice with a light blow torch which will change its colour and make it bubble. For extreme aging, hit the surface with a hammer or different shaped items to make it appear dented and well used.

3

StenCil a wall Popular in kids bedrooms – and a great activity to do as a family – stencils are now hugely trendy in any room in the house and make for an eye-catching feature. To create the look you’ll need coloured paints and cutouts in patterns or shapes (try animals for kids’ bedrooms) which can be bought in interior stores or online. To achieve the perfect stencil, masking tape and thick paint is key (too

thin and you’ll have drips down your walls). There are a variety of ways to apply stencils, depending on the effect you are looking for. Go Banksy-style with a spray can, make like Monet with oil paint and a brush or create the illusion of Spanish vines on your villa.

4

PaPer your furniture It may sound bizarre but, done well, putting wrapping paper or wallpaper on your furniture can create a striking façade and spice up a drab table or dresser. This technique works best on flat surfaces. Choose your paper wisely to complement your interiors and then cut it into pieces or shapes and glue the undersides with PVA. Place the edge of the paper in the position you want it to appear on your furniture and run a heavy metal ruler or piece of

wood over the surface to get rid of any air underneath and avoid that bubble-effect. Leave the paper to dry and set the look by brushing opaque varnish over the top.

5

DeSign an armChair Ever fancied yourself as a furniture designer? There’s no better place to put your dreams into practice than Dubai. The experienced tailors at Everest Furniture (everestfurnitureonline.com) in Al Quoz take your photos, fabric samples and shapes you’ve drawn and put together your envisaged, one-of-a-kind design in their workshops. So, you can enjoy the creative process without having to work up a sweat.
