Sophisticated Neutrals


eutral tones are still the “go to� colour combinations for interior designers. Whether the feel of the space is transitional or sophisticated neutral tones are a great place to start. This colour combination works brilliantly with textured wall coverings such as soft drapes or 3D wallpaper. This is a great decorating backdrop which can be built upon as your taste change.

Pack a Punch with Pink


The Essential Costa del Sol website -


f rosy pink in pastels was a hit for spring, then hot pink is quickly turning into the coolest accent shade of the summer season. Whilst purples and violets have dominated the colour spectrum for many years, pink is seemingly making a summer comeback. For people looking for superb variants on this trendy shade, fuchsia is a fantastic option that is really near to the hue of scorching pink.Â

Remember, if you are working with a striking colour a small dose goes a long way and creates more impact. Less is more!


Try not to limit yourself to just styling your little princesses’ bedroom, pink looks fantastic when paired with grey or lime green. Give your room a colour lift with a new blanket or cushion in this funky hue. Also try hanging new curtains or reupholstering small pieces of furniture like stools and ottomans.

Vintage & Retro


ostalgic, colourful, timeless, whimsical, vintage and retro design themes carry a look and quality that is associated with bright buzz of summertime. When other modern day and rustic style designs seem to be restrictive in the use of colour, these 2 themes give you free rein in picking some of the most audacious prints and hues. These 2 themes will hold sway straight through to 2015.

Anadem, diadem of light Regal, sophisticated and intriguing hanging sculptures

featured on our cover

The design evokes the crowns that have adorned the heads of royalty over the ages: Anadem is an intriguing collection of hanging lights consisting of a series of bands in fire-resistant ecoleather, finished with visible stitching. The lamps, used on their own or in groups, convey a majestic and elegant austerity, where the aesthetic effect is based on the rhythmic alternation of eco-leather bands and on the form constructed on empty spaces that give the lampshade a lightness that is further accentuated by a corolla of pongee fabric that casts a soft light over the room.

Hot art installations projects, as they are stainless steel radiators that are fully functional and are emitting heat with every piece of their immaculately designed body.

This year’s MCE in Milan was enriched by a fresh new exhibitor – Zavar Design from Skopje, Macedonia and their high - end design product – stainless steel radiators. Zavar Design’s bold products, upon first look are often mistaken as sculptures. They are a statement of perfect taste and subtle luxury. But these works of art are also high-end engineering 52

The design power behind this engineering extravaganza is Marta Naumovska – Grnarova, owner and managing director of Zavar Design, mechanical engineer with big passion for art and design. The artist in her could not forego the passion of creating. And the engineer could not let the designer design just a mask that would hide the seemingly ugly heating device. It all started in 2004, and has since developed into 8 series - Drop, Identity, Atomic, Front, Tangent, Box, Alphabet and Bathroom. Each of them has a unique theme, and they all feature Marta’s sophisticated design handwriting. They are sold in different countries all around the globe.

Marioni - Edison Collection Creativity and artisan skills give life to Edison series (by Marioni), a collection of lamps that takes its name from the inventor of the incandescent light bulb.

Sensuality of the new blumarine home linen Sartorial yet warm constructions... sophisticated finishes where the details stand out The new Blumarine Home Collections sensuality of retro lace is proposed in many models and interpreted using various textures. A blaze of painted flowers and butterflies alighting on the Antea and Celeste lines in the tints of beige, powder, dewdrop and blue. A leaf pattern in the Gemma and Germoglio lines, on a macrame background, is printed on sheets and duvet covers in cotton percale.

Edison is the synthesis of archetypal shapes of old bulbs, revisited in a contemporary product “offscale”, a celebration of tradition and know-how. Habits of the past and present coexist in a light bulb with low energy consumption, in which the light filaments of the past are now replaced by an incandescent source and evoked through a brass frame that strongly connotes the product. The Edison series is available in four different shapes, each of which can be combined with a cap made of ceramic with various finishes: Cream - Grey - Celadon - Rust - White chrome wire - Black gold wire. The curved rod finishes are: Gold - Nickel - Nickel Black. The simple and straightforward design makes it ideal for creating multiple compositions to great effect. Wall and floor lamp solutions are also available in the small version. For more information visit:

And then there was light Hermès launches lighting collection at Salone del Mobile Hermès chose the spectacular late 18thcentury Palazzo Serbelloni in Milan as the atmospheric setting in which to launch the fourth edition of its home collection, Hermès en lumière, which includes lighting for the first time. Hermès presented three LED lighting collections and although each was very different in form, all exhibited the brand’s DNA with finely crafted materials and frames elegantly wrapped in their signature leather. The Lanterne d’ Hermès was designed by the French light scenographer Yann Kersalé. A modular light with a rechargeable battery, it takes its cues from sailing or old carriage lamps, and can be used indoors or out. Pantographe and Harnais, inspired by an architect’s drawing implement and Hermes’s equestrian heritage respectively, were both designed by Michele de Lucchi, whom Hélène Dubrule. The large articulated floor light, Lampadaire Arche, from the Pantographe range is particularly refined with its slender frame, double-dimmer system, and silk twill shade. It even features a leather-covered flex. Also on display were new re-editions of a chair, console and bench by Jean-Michel Frank that were first designed with Hermès in 1924. The brand’s collaboration with French designer Philippe Nigro continues apace in the form of the Curiosités d’ Hermès, a series of three furniture pieces inspired by the “cabinets of old” and created to “bring surprise and unexpected delight”. These are based around the indulgent daily rituals life such as taking care of one’s shoes, afternoon tea and cocktail hour. Created from exquisite materials, such as ebony-finished pear wood, graphite Porosus crocodile and ebony Bosphore horsehair in the case of the Club Bar. For more information visit:

AKDO is an international stone and tile brand that has been quietly importing the finest globally sourced stone, tile and mosaic to the U.S. for years. Known by architects, designers and industry insiders throughout the luxury kitchen and bath world for its products, especially its sumptuous and refined natural stone mosaics, AKDO offers its collections to-the-trade through the top boutique tile showrooms. AKDO’s innovative new collection, Allure, takes its cues from classic Hollywood Regency style but has its own particular modern glamour that is distinctively fashioninspired. It consists of four geometric mosaic patterns, with interlocking field patterns and borders crafted of natural stone. Striking mirror-enhanced versions are accented with astonishingly tiny, hand-cut bits of mirror in blends of bronze, pewter and silver tones, all cut by hand and channel-set like gems into these refined patterns. The all-stone versions speak to refined taste and feature tiny slivers and circles of contrasting stone colours. Whether in mirror or stone, these delicate accent chips, about the size of the stones and baguettes in actual jewellery, create Allure’s uniquely subtle texture. The effect is also reminiscent of the crystal or palette detailing found in couture gowns. The mosaics may be used for eye-catching

backsplashes, walls and for creating “rugs” inset into fields of matching marble tiles. Stones include Calacatta and Carrara Bella marbles from the Italy’s Tuscany coast and sugary-white Thassos from the ancient mountain ranges of Turkey. These materials from antiquity, mixed with gleaming mirror and set in thoughtfully wrought patterns, make for timeless interior decoration, whether in a kitchen, bath, entry, spa, bar or pool cabana. Noted interior designer Young Huh will be featuring the Allure collection in her upcoming installation in America’s most prestigious designer showhouse, to benefit the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club in Manhattan, opening in late Spring.

 Egyptian influences make every room feel regal


The Essential Costa del Sol website -


verything goes round in circles so sooner or later it makes sense that we look back through our history and the art of our predecessors – the ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians. Of course, living in the 21st century, requires that when adapting these ancient periods into our homes we must try and incorporate the modern aesthetics of today.

Egyptian interior decor is beautiful, unique, striking and one of the most expressive decorating styles, combining antique chic with luxurious elegance. The key to creating this impressive look is the use of rich colours, classy black and golden yellow accents paired with Egyptian statues & mysterious hieroglyphs will bring an old world elegance to your modern home interiors. Beautiful columns, frescoes and basreliefs add a statement creating an unusual and expensive look.

Perfect Homes International Magazine


Textiles:: Natural decorative fabrics in solid colours are perfect for creating light and festive, elegant and comfortable home interiors. The egyptians loved drapes, so hang curtains around your bed to create that regal Cleopatra look. Use heavy jacquared fabrics to dress a windows to achieve luxurious swags and tails.

Accessories: Statues of birds, animals, deities, mythological creatures, vases and rugs are important elements of Egyptian interior styles. Remeber anything that glitters must br gold.

Furniture: Beautiful chairs and small benches, made of dark wood and carved ornaments are essential. Choice pieces decorated with enamel, mother of pearl, gilding and inlay to capture that signature Egyptian look.

Perfect Homes International Magazine


Colour: Egyptians worshipped the sun god Ra, so your colour palette should reflect the warmth of the sun therefore focus on all types of yellow from desert sands to golden-yellow tones. Don’t be afraid to mix gold & brass accessories with yellow toned walls, just ensure you blend the colours!

Colour is everywhere this summer and what better place to showcase your personality than with a statement sofa!

p Koochy

Undercover u

t Scott

Beige sofas are a thing of the past and no longer does your sofa have to blend in. A statement sofa is the focal point of any room and can be a conversation starter as well as a real fashion statement. Sofas today come in so many different colours, styles and deigns that the market is now full of wacky and bold designs. A common consensus is that you accessorise with colour around your sofa, i.e. painting one wall a bold colour or accessorising with bright lamps. But why not use your sofa as the main point of colour for your room and filter out more neutral tones on your walls and furnishings. Your lounge is the heart of the home so why not make it the most attractive and creative room in the house. Statement doesn’t always mean bright and over the top colours and designs. A statement sofa can come in the form of a striking style, a certain fabric or an attractive pattern.

n imposing residential project, with a sense of boldness, this two-storey 1232 Sunset Plaza, located in the Sunset Strip, near  West Hollywood,  is an exquisite dream home, a luxury resort-like sanctuary, that will conquer your heart, as soon as you see it.

The Main Residence

Open Living at its design best

The interior and exterior share a contemporary and luxurious design ethos, with the main residence boasting sweeping panoramic views of the city, afforded by an endless number of vantage points throughout the estate.

The stylish lounge has an open view out over the sun deck, from the large L-shaped sofa, where an outdoor seating area huddles around a fire pit–a perfect place for entertaining into the night. A huge kitchen with not one, but two kitchen islands holds cherry wood cabinets and solid marble countertops adding a touch or warmth as the contrasting colours blend suitably with the open living area.

Equally stunning are the views of the property itself from within, as architectural and landscape elements serve as artistic expressions and repeatedly delight as one explores the property. Within the lofty interior spaces, rich wood grain has been incorporated across ceilings to add a look of warmth to the pale and spacious design.

The basement houses a wine room / cellar which has been furnished with a wine tasting area, viewable through the vast transparent bottle rack, so friends can sit, sample and sip away the evening.

Sophistication reins in this décor scheme, where textured feature walls meet twinkling sculpture lights above an array of plush and patterned rugs.

A stunning glass walled mezzanine adds a touch of old school glamour as it looks down over the main staircase and out over the property.

HOUSE LAM Designed by: Werner van der Meulen Location: Bedfordview, Johannesburg, South Africa Residence size: 806.78 m²


he rocky outcrop with spectacular views of the Johannesburg skyline inspired the additions and alterations of this contemporary home. Built from steel, stone and glass, the home was developed to maximize the surrounding views, making use of the natural features without compromising the contemporary flowing aspect of the architectural design. The existing entrance into the house was originally at the top of the site. The new entrance to the re-designed home, which was transformed into a three storey mansion, was created on the lower ground floor with an internal staircase leading up to the ground floor living area. The ground floor is an open plan living area with a double volume living room leading out onto the lanai and pool, this area has spectacular views to the north and west. The kitchen has views to both the north and south, from here you can also access the lanai and living area.

The ground floor living areas were designed around the pool, which is a prominent feature of this custom design. The spillover detail of this cantilevered pool creates a seamless integration with the views across the city. A bridge links opposite sides of the main and family bedroom suites, which all have wrap around balconies that maximise the surrounding views and make provision for outdoor living. M Square Lifestyle Design meticulously chose a colour palette to compliment the colours that were used in the building’s structural elements and used materials matching the structural elements.

The furniture pieces were sourced from M Square Lifestyle Necessities, this includes items from Molteni and C, Floss and Kundalini. M SQUARE LIFESTYLE NECESSITIES M Square Lifestyle Necessities is the interior design and dĂŠcor show room that was formed in association with Nico van der Meulen Architects. All items in the store are carefully selected to redefine internal spaces with uniquely selected items of the highest quality sourced from around the world; this includes contemporary furniture, lighting and accessories imported from top designers all over the world.

nvironmental Benefits of Shade Sails & Fabric Structures


The Essential Costa del Sol website -


abric structures, such as shade sails, combine traditional building materials, metal, wood, stone, and glass – with a fabric membrane, typically designed under very high tension. The most common application is the traditional awning, however shade sails, tension membranes, and retractable fabric rooves are becoming increasingly popular as people discover their cost and environmental benefits. Shade Sails are pieces of fabric designed to create large shaded spaces. The concept of creating spaces with large pieces of material is not new. The existence of shade sails can be traced back to the ancient Egyptians and later the Greeks and Romans, where they were used to shade the crowds in The Coliseum of Rome. The Roman Armies were shaded from the draining effects of the sun with shade sails during wartime. It is a concept recently rediscovered in Australia in the early 1970’s and spreading around the world. Shade Sails are four sided polygons and triangular pieces of fabric resembling the shape of ship’s sails around the 1800’s. They can be secured directly to a house, posts or trees, and they are ideally suited in situations where a

minimum number of posts are required. When incorporated within existing architecture, large spaces can be repurposed. Fabric structures have massive advantages over structures made from traditional materials. They are lightweight and incorporate a lot less material, they can be efficiently engineered and installed, and structures such as shade sails can involve complex 3D geometrical patterns that enable unlimited scope in architectural creativity. Most importantly, however, shade sails and shade sail structures can be manufactured to have an extremely low environmental impact. Materials can be used that are 100% recyclable, and because of their lightweight nature they cut down dramatically on supporting structure requirements. Plus the shade sail fabric allows natural lighting whilst reflecting radiant heat, reducing energy requirements and utility costs. All in all, the introduction of well designed shade sails or fabric structures into your home or workplace will create a wonderful aesthetic, whilst importantly minimising the impact of your footprint on the environment.

Options and benefits of revamping your garden with garden decking


ver recent years, there has been a growing demand for decking. Whether you are a sun-worshiper or just need some chill-out time, the best way and place to do so is in the sun. It is not just the sun of course; decking can be a stunning addition to any garden and can really make somewhere feel like home. It is your own personal sanctuary to wind down and look out on the world beyond. The popularity means that there are now so many options to choose from, making the purchase not only somewhere to relax, but also somewhere and something that can suit your personal tastes and likes. Perfect Homes International Magazine


Garden decking is easy to set up and is a great way to make any garden look good. It gives you somewhere to go when you want to spend some time outside. There are so many different variations available in the market, with the most popular being slatted or parquet. Slatted decking is the traditional choice that is laid at 90 degrees with a small gap between each piece. This is for draining and to enable the wood to move with the elements. Parquet garden decking has become popular in larger projects and consists of square formations patterned together in parallel or checkerboard styles. Putting down the decking is easy, but takes some care in order to ensure the decking is fitted properly and easy to maintain. Proper fitting is also important to ensure full durability and safety. Every garden is different so the choice people make is dependent on the size of the garden and personal preference. Decking can make such a great difference in look whilst being functional too. Finding quality garden decking is easy online and the benefit of using the web means that you can see all the options available to you and ensure that you are getting the highest quality from the best provider. You can also find the best for less online and make the most of the competition out there so you can transform your garden into a place that you love spending time in. Decking is an attractive addition to any garden and can be fitted by the professionals or yourself. It is always recommended to call in the professionals but that depends on your own experience. As long as you make sure your decking is fitted for maximum durability and safety, you can relax. Decking does not take much maintenance either but keeps an eye out for rusty fittings every now and again and replace them as required to get the most out of your decking.,,

The great range available can really transform the outside space you have and enhance your garden so that you can make the most of your garden.

VERTICAL GARDENS So, why would you want to take advantage of growing a garden vertically, instead of in a traditional garden plot? Why not!


The Essential Costa del Sol website -

One plus about this type of garden is have you ever complained about your back and knees hurting. Vertical gardening enables you to grow plants without ever hardly having to bend or get down on your knees. Grow vertically in plant pockets, hanging planters, stacking containers, recycled pallets, in stacked flower boxes, table garden systems,

plant trees, on tables and up-cycled ladders. If you can imagine it, you can grow it. You will be saving space with a vertical garden, especially if you have no land or a very small yard. Grow up the side of your fence, on a wall, the deck, your balcony. Some vertical garden systems are portable and can be moved from outside to indoors on wheeled apparatus. There is also the possilbilty to grow inside during colder months, using a grow light. There’s much less work and time involved when preparing vertical gardens. Uses less water because in many vertical gardens, water is recycled through the planting system. You’re dog won’t dig up your garden, or other animals. It’s an easier way to protect your plants from soil-borne pests. Using less soil means no weeds or fewer weeds.



ho said that you need big yard or garden to fulfill your desire of having lovely flowers and plants? Vertical garden design does not require much space; in fact, they can be made in various styles to suit your need. You should be thinking about diy vertical garden ideas that are easy to implement and maintain. Vertical gardening ideas have the capacity to help maintain your garden terrace, kitchen, balcony and even the backyard in a beautiful way.

Beating the Heat How can something built in your garden, possibly not even right next to the house, have an effect on the temperature inside the property?

Retreat - Marbella, Spain

Perfect Homes International Magazine


Beat the summer heat with a luxurious thatch and timber structure from Cape Reed.


f asked to list the benefits of building a shading structure, like a pergola or gazebo, in your garden, most people would probably come up with the same answers. A cool place to sit under on a sunny day and also an attractive focal point in the garden. What almost no one would guess is that a pergola or gazebo can actually lower your air conditioning bills. At first reading that might seem like nonsense. How can something built in your garden, possibly not even right next to the house, have an effect on the temperature inside the property? It all has to do with what’s known as the heat island effect. Whereas natural materials typically reflect the sun’s rays, while building materials such as stone and brick absorb more of the

heat, releasing it back into the environment slowly and causing rises in temperature.

and using so much water on your garden is not environmentally friendly.

We’ve all experienced it when we’ve been foolish enough to step onto concrete in bare feet only to jump back onto the grass with burned toes.

The materials we at Cape Reed use more than meet the requirements: the thatching we use has a Solar Reflective Index of 54.52 and the timber of 80.31. Even better, the materials we use come only from sustainable sources, meaning it’s environmentally friendly too.

In fact surfaces like roofs and paving that are exposed to direct sunlight can become as much as 50 degrees Celsius hotter than the surrounding air. By including shaded areas around your villa, and using materials that don’t absorb as much heat, you can reduce the load on your air conditioner by as much as 50 per cent. The obvious solution is just to plant lots of trees and grass, but of course this can be extremely expensive to maintain in the hotter months,

Although the initial investment may be higher than soft landscaping, the investment will pay for itself over time through lower electricity bills. Let’s face it we all enjoy spending time outdoors especially under the cosy protection of a cape reed structure, and the materials we use outside our houses can have a big impact on the environment, allowing us to spend longer time outdoors at the weather heats up.

Extempore trendsetter and classic If Extremis can take credit for anything, it is the enormous boost it gave to outdoor design furniture in the last decade. In the mid nineties, that market was not nearly as large as now. In its early years, Extremis had to grow step by step and Dirk Wynants had to concentrate more on the business side than on the design side of his young company, which targeted multiple foreign markets right from the start. After the launch of Gargantua in 1994, it would take Extremis four years to introduce the Extempore range, which has in the meantime become a real design classic signed Arnold Merckx.

Comprehensive range If you take a contemporary view of Extempore, you probably wouldn’t find it very innovative. In 1998 however, combining wood and aluminium was really trendsetting. Innovation was furthermore subtly present in other aspects of the range. Extempore is for instance a comprehensive and modular outdoor furniture range offering solutions for really all day-today functionalities such as sitting, dining, lying, relaxing, reading, etc. Its major innovation however is invisible to the end user: With the Extempore range the production of waste material has been kept to a minimum. Each (wooden) element can be used on any product within the range. Originally the wood furthermore originated from areas managed by nature conservation organisations and nowadays Extremis still exclusively uses FSC labelled wood. Also in this regard Extremis was truly trendsetting‌

The new way to buy in Spain Introducing Strategic & Buy Strategic & Buy are a luxury buying consultancy who specializes in the sourcing and purchase of high end properties in Spain. Discrete, bespoke and refined, Strategic & Buy offers a new way to buy, refurbish or create residences in one of the most popular second home destinations in Europe. Strategic & Buy was born out of the bureaucracy that CEO Sheena CampbellRoyle experienced when buying her own property in Spain 12 years ago. Recognizing the myriad pitfalls, rigidity and legal intricacies surrounding the buying process for foreigners, she strove to develop a personal service that assumed responsibility and navigated the often arduous procedure which has given rise to well documented problems with second home purchases.

Perfect Homes International Magazine


“We de-mystify and simplify the process of buying Spanish property”.


ifferentiating itself from developers selling bargain properties in Spain, Strategic & Buy tells the country’s other story, concentrating on sourcing superior properties and matching them carefully with buyers’ individual needs. With no properties on its books, Strategic & Buy remains 100% focused on the client and their unique requirements meaning that all properties are selected with the individual buyer in mind. It has garnered a team of experts including English and Spanish speaking lawyers, architects and bi-cultural sales representatives who are on hand to guide purchasers through the entire process. The Strategic & Buy concept is a simple one; dedicated advisors will be assigned to every client to offer a bespoke and comprehensive service assuming responsibility for everything from the sourcing of homes to the legalities associated with the purchase. Immediate property requirements will be discussed in detail, after which the Strategic & Buy advisor will source properties both on and off the market, present their findings and help clients to shortlist their favourites. At this point extensive due diligence is carried out including in-depth examination of existing and future urban and rural planning to assure clients of the validity and security of their purchase options.

Offering a service akin to personal shopping, former President of the British Chamber of Commerce in Spain, Sheena Campbell-Royle speaks of the bespoke and professional service that Strategic & Buy has honed. ‘Whether a client craves a deserted farm village, a chalet in the foothills of the Pyrenees or a modern new build on the coast, Strategic & Buy can provide access to the widest cross section of Spain’s real estate supply. No individual ask is too large, if a client seeks an English speaking neighbour or an inclusive community of Spaniards we will know where to look and how to deliver.’ Thanks to its temperate climate, accessibility from the UK and landscape offering a stunning coastline, dramatic mountains and beautiful inland areas, Spain remains one of the most popular countries for second home investments.

St. Kitts & Nevis

Show me the money! Caribbean Islands offering a piece of paradise by selling citizenship’s Are you fed up with your home country, want to pay lower taxes, enjoy the freedom to travel and strive for a higher quality of life? Well, if you have as little as $100,000 then you could buy citizenship to a tiny, tropical Caribbean nation that ticks all of those boxes and then some.

St. Kitts and Nevis Cash for citizenship is an easy concept to understand. It best applies to just two countries in the world -- both of which happen to be in the Caribbean -- and are 100% legal and can happen in as little as a few months. The smallest nation in all of the Americas, the island federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, tempts would-be citizens with more than just tropical breezes, swaying palm trees and white sand beaches. It also touts no personal income tax, the allowance for multiple-citizenship and visa-free access to nearly 130 countries and territories, the program is open to all nationalities except Iranian. Established in 1984, St. Kitts and Nevis’ citizenship-by-investment scheme is the longest-running program in the world and offers two avenues to a new passport. The cheaper option requires a $250,000 contribution to the country’s Sugar Industry Diversification Foundation. The second option is purchasing real estate investment to the value of $400,000 +.  At present the government website lists nearly 60 approved developments such as; Sundance Ridge, Calypso Bay and Windswept Residence which accept these types of investments. Investment Opportunity: Park Hyatt St. Kitts Located in Banana Bay, a secluded area offering white sand beaches and crystal clear water, as well as a splendid view of the beautiful island of Nevis.  The ownership of an investment share in this ultra-luxury hotel project grants investors the right to become eligible for  St Kitts and Nevis citizenship. Park Hyatt St. Kitts is a part of the multibillion-dollar  Christophe Harbour  resort, providing world-class amenities such as super yacht marina, a golf course by Fazio Design, restaurants, boutiques, five-star hotels, and luxury villas.  The investors will have the privilege of becoming members of the  Hyatt Gold Passport Club and enjoy suite upgrades, a special welcome amenity, complimentary in-room internet access, reservations through an exclusive Diamond line and access to the Regency Club or Grand Club lounges.

Antigua and Barbuda After years of back and forth, the country’s parliament has finally passed their controversial Citizenship-by-Investment Program (CIP) Bill. Similar to that of St. Kitts and Nevis, the program offers three routes for entry; $250,000 contribution to the country’s National Development Fund  or a $400,000 real estate investment in approved developments or a $1.5 million “business investment” that allows an applicant to put money into governmentapproved businesses. An additional $50,000 application fee and a $7,500 “due diligence fee” exist on top of the investment amount however once approved the new citizens will enjoy visa-free access to nearly 120 countries, which include the United Kingdom, France and Canada. Investment opportunity: Tamarind Hills, Antigua The resort’s distinctive architectural features and clean interior design combine with an outstanding location on two of Antigua’s most beautiful and photographed beaches. Set on an elevated sunset facing bluff on the west coast of Antigua, Tamarind Hills is a luxurious five star development comprising spectacular 23 spectacular villas and 39 apartments set in 12.81 acres. All properties are being sold on a freehold basis with some apartments available as buy-to-lets. An optional rental programme is available to all owners.

Each owner will have the facilities and services of a five star hotel, from the comfort and privacy of their own home. The beach bar will be the ideal rendezvous for breakfast and lunches; the sunset bar built out over the water will be the perfect place to enjoy a sundowner; and the fine dining restaurant for enjoying more sophisticated dining whilst enjoying the sweeping views from its covered terraces.

Dominica If you have less money to invest, Dominica is another tropical Caribbean destination to consider. Not to be confused with the Dominican Republic, this island of just around 73,000 people has offered a citizenship-byinvestment scheme since 1993. Among four package options, a single applicant investment requires just a $100,000 deposit to the National Bank of Dominica, the country’s largest financial institution. The investment amount doubles for a family of four. Applicants must be of “outstanding character,” must wait “at least eight weeks” for approval and must have a “basic level” of English, according to Dominica’s website detailing the citizenship path. 184

Grenada The new Grenada Citizenship by Investment  program is the hot news in the citizenship-by-investment world these days. Unlike in some other similar residency and citizenship programs, you can participate in the Grenadian citizenship program by invitation only.  The main applicant and their family members will be approved individually by the Government of Grenada through a strict “know your client”  procedure. This approach aims to preserve the prestige and the value of the Grenadian citizenship and passport. Currently, you can apply by investing at Mount Cinnamon beach resort.  Mount Cinnamon, a chic boutique hotel, currently consists of 22 beautiful, privately owned villas (1/2/3 bedroom), is undoubtedly privy with the best views in Grenada, as well as the best location – on the stunning Grand Anse Beach. This development is supported by the Grenadian Government  Option One: US$1M Investment Required This first option includes full freehold ownership of a luxury apartment  and two shares in the operating profits at Mount Cinnamon Hotel; two of only 500 issued shares in the company that owns the hotel business; and two Main Citizenships. Option Two - $250,000 Investment Required   Option two is where a single applicant wishes to apply on their own. It includes a  50% freehold interest in a luxury one-bedroom apartment, one share in the operating profits of the entire hotel business, and one Citizenship.  In either of the above cases, all application fees, government fees, and due diligence fees are included for the main applicants. However, very reasonable additional fees will apply for all supplementary applicants applied for by the main applicant such as spouse, dependent children under 26 years of age, and dependent parents.

Bathroom Design Layouts When planning that perfect retreat its essential to follow these steps before you start


You should give thought about who will be using the bathroom, there is no point designing an elaborate bathroom with mirrors and trinkets if the children will be the ones using it – A bathroom really needs to be functional for all.


Do you take showers of linger in a long bubble bath? Utilising the space available is essential. Today most young professional couple enjoy the speed and efficiency of high end showers but if you have a young family a bath is a necessity. If the property possesses only one bathroom then a shower- bath combo is a great compromise.


Fittings, consider extraction units, shower sockets, plugs for hairdryers and lighting. The latter especially, is a crucial part of a bathroom design. With a variety of new LED lights on the market even the simplest bathroom design can be illuminated in a way that will add real aesthetic appeal.


Setting a budget is crucial. A typical bathroom costs between €2000 - €5000 depending upon the products and appliances used. If you’re considering moving fixtures and fittings this will be an additional expense. Can’t decide which style best suits your space here we look todays modern alternatives


Brick Lane Trend setters amongst us swear by this look, after all it works wonderfully for trendy cafĂŠ and upscale restaurants! Exposed masonry really gives a room an edge and works very well in a bathroom setting. To give the impression of a pampering haven rather than a draughty industrial site ensure your colour scheme blends with the bricks and stone work. Teal, grey or a warm beige work really well but ensure you invest in statement units and a freestanding bath.

Brillant Bathrooms Designs Mosaic Tiles Mosaic tiles are a great alternative to traditional bathroom tiles. Add a touch or texture by pairing jeweltoned glass mosaic tiles in warm metallic shades in contrasting colours.

Going back to Nature Embrace cabin fever with Scandinavian style wood effects. Bathrooms in a cherry colour add a warmth and contrast to any bathroom. Paired with a statement free standing bath in cream or matt black adds a drastic focal point

Moroccan Twist Bathrooms by nature are all about contrast – hot and cold, wet and dry, cold tiles warm fluffy bath mats. A bathroom’s design should be no different, curved shower cubicles, and sleek sinks juxtaposed against glass doorways and vanities add a touch of the exotic. To accentuated a Moroccan bathroom use warm earthy tones of okra, spice and brown. Perfect Homes International Magazine


Wet Rooms A wet room is created when the whole bathroom area is tiled or finished in the same material as the shower. There is also no shower tray so the shower floor is level with the rest of the floor. Often, if the room is large enough, there will be no shower enclosure at all and there might not even be bathtub. Wet rooms are a trendy way to achieve a streamlined bathroom

Brillant Bathrooms Designs And then there was light!


If your bathroom is without windows and therefore sunlight, brighten it with a primarily color scheme enhanced with a textural accent wall and strategic lighting. Create an illusion of light with light framed mirrors, spotlights or as in this case a feature wall with a fishtank!


The Essential Costa del Sol website -

Divide & Conquer Splitting up a large bathroom area so the basin, shower & bath are in one area with a partition separating the WC can make a bathroom more functional and private.

Keeping on trend with Andrea

Make a statement piece out of your sofa!


ne of the main items in a living room is the sofa. We must pay special attention to the quality of the filling, quality of the structure and make sure that the design is conceptualised to suit your style and requirements. It’s also very important to get the proportions right and add

the proper depth to the sofa, to achieve the right sitting position and maximum comfort. Try an L-Shape sofa if you like to give your lounge a modern look but with a relaxed feel. For instance, if you enjoy watching TV in the

lounge, an L-shape with a chaise longue can provide the perfect comfort where you can put your feet up and relax. Modular sofas are also quite practical and can be made to measure and placed in creative shapes.

Create the illusion of space in your bathroom


here are clever ways of making your bathroom feel more luxurious, modern and spacious. Floor to ceiling windows let in vast amounts of light, which when teamed with floating fixtures such as sinks, shower cubicles and bathtubs, reflects off the floor and walls to create a stunning luminous space.

Choosing the right storage system for a bathroom is a very important quality that will keep your bathroom looking tidy and clean, which will make one’s daily routine a pleasurable one. There is a  wide range of materials, finishes, tones and unit modules that can be installed in various ways, for expressing one’s individual style and imagination, creating unique and innovative compositions.

Seaside the star of any setting


othing changes more than water nothing is more indefinable than desire. Teuco knows that the needs of those who love to pamper themselves and recharge their batteries in water are ever-changing.  That is why it has learned to mould shapes and technologies to turn every bathroom into a unique, highly personal space. Teuco does not merely stand for beauty and design, but most of all for flexibility, innovation and safety.

Seaside - For the living environment A project designed to revolutionise the very concept of the bathtub, which “leaves” the bathroom and moves the bathing experience to the bedroom or living room areas.


A tactile and visual delight to dive into every day.


he Teuco range for bathrooms is amongst the most revered in luxury bathrooms. With installations designed by world-famous designers including Matteo Nunzati and Luca Scacchetti, and pioneering products such as whirlpool baths and allglass showers, they have become a byword for luxury in many designer circles and it is no wonder that their design and innovation have brought the company major international acknowledgements, along with the Interior Innovation Award of 2013 & 2014 which is one of the most prestigious global awards in the furniture industry and the iF design award 2014. The simple yet striking design of every Teuco bathtub combines creativity, with efficiency and a focus on relaxation and fitness, with this mind Teuco have expanded its range of bathtubs once again to revolutionize the way we bathe. The Seaside Range: a project designed by Talocci merges the concept of beauty and multi-sensory wellness, applying it other living environment within the home to further enhance the bathing experience offering a sense of spa wellbeing into the home.

Seaside - For the Bathroom Today the bathroom has become more of a significant part of a home’s dÊcor. To embrace the Seaside concept Teuco have created, a special Seaside model offered in a more compact version, to ensure it fits in any sized room.

Creating Amazing Spaces


lackshaw Interior Design present their latest renovation project.

A project which is exactly what Blackshaw Interior Design has become known for, taking a house apart and then putting it back together again in a modern, aesthetically pleasing way. Experts in this field of work, we are becoming market leaders. WHY? because by working with a trusted team of skilled craftsmen who are able to deliver the project on time bringing to life everything the clients had in mind. The Project - Las Brisas: A project like this starts with a design fee which enables our design team to make a complete design study. This involves a lot of hours of drawings plans, offering 2D and 3D options. Once the clients are happy with the schemes we have put together along with the complete construction and furnishing quotes we can get to work. This also includes our project management, putting together the contractor team, and negotiating entirely for the client on their behalf throughout. This particular project took approximately 4 months from start to finish. The villa was in need of complete modernisation for an English families second home in the heart of

the Golf Valley Nueva Andalucía. The once loved chintzy pelmets, and beige bathroom suites were not to their liking or ours for that matter. We created our signiture look of home from home feel, updated contemporary and welcoming. Outside we redesigned and enlarged the swimming pool, making the pool stairs and aqua (effect with white tiles) coloured water the first things you see on your approach down the stairs, through the double doors into the lounge. The other most important thing is curb appeal, you want your house to look like the best house on the street, the one everyone’s talking about. The curved wall, and overgrown shrubs were just too much. We wanted straight lines, saying this house is taken care of, strong and secure, with huge wooden and chrome sliding gates to replace the old iron ones. Up and down contemporary lights finished off the streamlined look. Other construction details included making the whole interior shared living space open plan, but cleverly giving each section its identity. The log burning 3 sided fire which can be enjoyed from all angles ties the space together. There really isn’t one piece of the house which hasn’t been replaced or at least given some updating.

Obviously the clients are rest assured that they have brand new electrical, plumbing, under floor heating, air-conditioning throughout, and all the latest technology. We chose porcelain wood effect flooring, which is homely and easy to maintain. PVC windows, secure, made from sustainable materials, and the best insulation systems. Ceiling design often overlooked also played a really important role in our project, as it enabled us to hide A/C ducting, and also create great lighting effects, with drop ceilings for LED spotlights, and recessed LED lighting effects on all the dimmers. In the bathrooms and kitchen we can also create ambience lighting effects with LED behind mirrors and under units, counters. It really is a cost effective way of making a difference. The furnishings where all coordinated to fit in with the style of the new house, with lots of communication between ourselves and the clients. Accents colours, luxury silks and velvets, against cool lacquers and dark black or grey oak wood. With years of experience working with brands and manufacturers we know who to rely on for quality, cost and deadlines. All of our soft furnishings are made on site, so we really can control the quality and make design decisions quickly.


We find our clients who use this kind of complete construction to furnishing service easy and stress free, because we really do offer everything from each end of the spectrum. All you have to do is deal with one company. Blackshaw Interior Design takes pride in the fact that we handle all of the responsibility so our clients don’t have to, plus a remodel adds immediate value to both your property either for investment or living, and also your lifestyle. If you have a renovation or furnishing project you would like us to take a look at, residential, commercial or other, we would be really interested to meet you and discuss exactly what you need. You may see the rest of this project, with before, during and completed photos on our website.

The latest innovative devices that can help you tackle those kitchen chores

Mind-blowing next-generation appliances

We all know that when it comes to adding value to your home, the kitchen is one of the primary areas that potential buyers look at.

Today’s appliances are a new breed with internet-connected washing machines, smartphone-controlled fridges, intelligent ovens and iPhone-inspired control pads the humble appliance our parents used has most definitely made it into the 21st century.

AGA iTotal Even the most traditional of cast iron range cookers have been given a thoroughly modern makeover. The all electric Total Control from AGA can be controlled using a text message or via an app. The always-on AGA is notoriously inefficient but the app allows users to heat individual ovens ahead of time so they are ready for cooking when you are.

COMBO Combo has lively, stylized florals in black, red and green and a lot of movement to “jazz up� your table. This white porcelain dinnerware is part of a collection of three distinct patterns with a wide array of accessories that blend together, offering a creative aspect.

FARMHOUSE TOUCH by Villeroy & Boch Can always be relied upon to produce beautiful crockery, and its new Farmhouse Touch range is no exception. The textured porcelain has a simple, rustic feel but is elegant enough for wowing guests or displaying in a dresser in a country-style kitchen. The delicate flower motifs will bring a touch of the outdoors into your kitchen, while the blue shade will brighten up the dinner table in no time.

ASIATIC PHEASANTS This was the most popular pattern of the Victorian era introduced in 1827. Its romantic gentle blue pattern proved to be more popular than its dark Georgian counterpart Willow. Asiatic Pheasants took pride of place from the kitchen dresser to the dining table. The sheer volume of demand has left us today with many antique pieces. There are modern imposters but ours is as the original pieces were in the 19th century!

Design and


in the Bathroom

Functional solutions with appealing aesthetics When furnishing a bathroom two parameters are especially important: design and convenience. The design must correspond with the wishes and visions of the user, while the upmost convenience should be provided by the harmonious integration of modern functionality. In order to achieve this combination, Villeroy & Boch offers well-designed bathroom collections, sophisticated innovations that are indispensible in the modernday bathroom, and intelligent installation and mounting systems that meet the highest of aesthetic standards.

Pure ceramic at the washbasin The Push-Open valve The Push-Open valve from Villeroy & Boch is an attractive fitting that enhances the quality of any washbasin with an overflow. The new valve is distinguished by its elegant and stylish ceramic cover. It is perfect for all those who value homogeneous design and certain to catch the eye at any washbasin. The Push-Open valve is easy to operate via a pressure plug and can be used in combination with most washbasins with overflows from all collections, e.g. those from Loop & Friends or Joyce. The standard dimensions of the valve also allow it to be added to washbasins that are already in place. Furthermore the new valve is the ideal solution for tap fittings with no lift rod, particularly in combination with surface-mounted washbasins or wall-mounted tap fittings.

Ultra-shallow WC seats SlimSeats In keeping with international trends towards ever-narrower edges and contours, Villeroy & Boch has developed WC seats with a delicate design and extremely contemporary flair for the WCs of various collections such as Joyce and also Omnia Architectura, Subway and Subway 2.0. The new SlimSeats are the shallowest seats in the Villeroy & Boch range and are equipped with convenient SoftClosing and QuickRelease functionalities. SoftClosing ensures that the seat cover lowers extremely gently and quietly, while QuickRelease allows the seat to be quickly and easily removed for cleaning. The new SlimSeats are available in colours to match the sanitary ceramics

Aesthetic narrow edges Squaro Edge 12 Narrow edges and delicate forms define contemporary interior design. Villeroy & Boch is now extending its bathtub range with Squaro Edge 12, a premium tub characterised by its clear lines that successfully combines bathing comfort and high aesthetic standards. The design highlight of Squaro Edge 12 is the 12 mm narrow rim, the creation of which is achieved through the use of the material Quaryl. This feature makes it possible to flush mount and tile the tub. Squaro Edge 12 presents a dynamic surface appearance that plays with precise, delicate lines and effective shadows. The new flush fitting waste outlet and overflow with integrated water inlet harmoniously complete the overall concept. Two versions in chrome and white are included as standard. If desired, Squaro Edge 12 can, however, be equipped with a three-hole or pillar tap fitting. Squaro Edge 12 is also suitable for the installation of a whirlpool system. There is a choice of rectangular built-in tubs in four sizes, a freestanding oval bathtub and an oval built-in tub. All the bathtubs are only 45 cm deep and thus require a reduced amount of water. User-comfort also benefits, as getting in and out of the bathtub is facilitated. For the freestanding tub there is a skirting panel available in White and in the bi-colour version Graphite Noir, which particularly accentuates the delicate edge. 246

at the heart of the bathroom The days of one-faucet-fits-all are long gone. Today, a new bathroom faucet can serve as that perfect piece of “jewellery” to complete an overall design. By combining the talents of Christofle, Studio Putman and master tap maker, THG, the sensual curves of the -O- collection was created.

The famous ring designed by Andrée Putman for Christofle is neither really round, nor oblong, twisting on the flat and rounded effect. It is the perfect embodiment of modern luxury. Since its creation it has been used with continued success in tableware, home and jewellery collections, it is now being introduced into the intimate environment of bathrooms, embellishing basins, bathtubs and various fixtures.

Worldwide Opportunities for 2014 Established and emerging nations have both been named as top options for overseas buyers, here we take a look at potential “safe investment zones for 2014� Perfect Homes International Magazine



While most of Europe has remained in the doldrums since the onset of the global recession, the big international property story of the year has been the UK. London in particular has drawn buyers from around the world and looks set to continuing doing so. Case in point: May 2014 saw Reuters announce that a penthouse at the prestigious One Hyde Park in London’s Knightsbridge neighborhood had sold for $237 million, setting a new world record for the priciest apartment sale ever. (In 2011, Ukraine’s richest man, billionaire Rinat Ahkmetov, paid $221 million for a penthouse in the same development. At the time, that was the most expensive apartment sale ever.) House prices in London rose 9.4% in the year to September 2013 and according to Rightmove

jumped a staggering 10.2% from September to October 2013– the biggest monthly increase since 2002. With the London property market predicted to rise by 24.4% (Savills) over the next 4 years, cash strapped Londoners are now looking further afield. Key areas where house prices are expected to rise are Maidenhead, Taplow and Burnham outside London and Ealing Broadway, Farringdon and Paddington in central London. With the arrival of the new upcoming Crossrail, Crossrail 2 and Northern Line & Thameslink extensions set to create fast connections from as far afield as Reading and Heathrow to Gravesend in the East. The improvement in the economic outlook, low interest rates and a chronic shortage of real estate is set to continue to push prices up over the next few years. Expect rises of between 4 and 7% across the UK as a whole during 2014.

Lagos, Nigeria

AFRICA Africa is the last great economic frontier. For many years the continent has been plagued by instability, but today, many economists believe that we are entering a period of dynamic growth across the continent. Vast but underexploited mineral and agricultural wealth combines with a young, growing population to create the bedrock for many years of growth. In parts of Africa, this can already be seen. Many African capitals are growing rapidly as the middle classes grow and as overseas executives pour in to support burgeoning foreign investment. This economic growth creates an exciting opportunity for property investors. As the wealth of local people increases and as the immigration of expatriates continues, there becomes an acute undersupply of appropriate housing. This is already happening in places like Uganda, Angola and Tanzania to name but a few. Because of the market dynamics, property in Africa generally has a much higher yield than in other markets as well strong growth prospects. A project where property is aimed at rental to expatriates makes a prime opportunity. It may sound high risk, but it is possible to invest safely in African property and profit from the continents long awaited boom.

Bacolet Bay, Grenada

GRENADA One of the most significant trends in property investment over the last few years has been the growth in citizenship investing and the plethora of tax advantages available in a number of Caribbean countries. In order to generate much needed revenue a number of islands have established themselves not only as tax free havens but are offering tax exempt local citizenship in return for healthy financial contributions or real estate investment. Those already with systems in place include Dominica, St Kitts and Nevis, Belize and Barbados but now they are also being joined by Grenada and Antigua. The government has introduced a variety of tax exemptions and is in the process of introducing a new residency/citizen package to further encourage overseas investment. This Citizen By Investment Program will require those accepted to invest in property and reside for at least part of the year in Grenada and is likely to attract high net worth buyers from the Middle East, Far East and China. The program which is being geared to carefully attract only “clean and credit investors� is expected to bring greater liquidity to the Grenadian property market which should in turn have a continued positive impact upon property values here.
