TESTIMONIAL

Despite what many may choose to believe, houses do not sell themselves in this neighbourhood. Nor any neighbourhood. One Realtor has grown accustomed to dropping a sign on the lawn then waiting for the action to unfold. I now drive by his stale listing daily. Another Realtor, who hosts a cable TV show learned the same lesson. What does it take to sell a home? It takes an understanding of the market, willingness to guide clients (especially those that want to over or even undervalue their property) and to fully understand the neighbourhood comparables. Recognizing the significance of building upon a business relationship for over a decade because there will come a day when a market-curious will become a seller. Nutan possesses those interpersonal and business skills necessary to truly understand people. She guided us through the process of staging, careful evaluation of the marketplace then drew upon experience to create a price that was right for the time. The results of a Red Diamond member speak for themselves.

Chickpea

TOFU STIR FRY WITH SPINACH, ZUCCHINI AND LEMON

This is a fantastic vegetarian or vegan meal and it can also be used as a healthy vegetable side dish. If you use it as a side dish, feel free to leave the tofu out. Serves 4.

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

• 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided

STEP ONE: Cut the tofu and place it on a paper towel and carefully blot it dry.

• 1 medium size cooking onion, about 1 cup diced • 1 14 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed • 1 450 gram package of firm or extra firm tofu • 2 small zucchini, diced into 1/2-1 inch cubes • 2 cups of baby spinach • 1/2 tsp salt, more to taste • Freshly ground pepper to taste • Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon

10

STEP T WO: In a large sauté pan, heat 2 tbsp oil over med high heat until shimmering. STEP THREE: Add onion and chickpeas, toss with oil. Sprinkle with some of the salt. Spread mixture over the pan so that the contents are in one layer. Let cook undisturbed for 3-4 minutes, toss and repeat. Do this a few times so that parts of the chickpeas develop a crust and become golden brown in spots, the onion will be the same. Remove to a heat proof dish.

STEP FOUR: Put the pan back on the heat. Add 1 tbsp more of the oil and add tofu, toss to coat, cook undisturbed until the tofu has crusted, toss and allow the tofu to brown on a few sides. Sprinkle with a little salt. Remove the tofu and add it to the dish with the chickpeas and onions. STEP FIVE: Put pan back on the heat, add the remainder of the oil, add zucchini, toss to coat, sprinkle with a little salt. Cook until the zucchini is golden brown all over, about 3-4 minutes, add the spinach by handful and toss until the spinach had wilted a little. STEP SIX: Add the chickpea, onion, tofu mixture pack to the pan with the zucchini and spinach and gently toss through. STEP SEVEN: Add the zest and juice of half a lemon. Gently toss. STEP EIGHT: Remove to platter, sprinkle with pepper. Serve. ◆

Colour

YOUR WORLD Our connection to colour is hard to understand, yet it’s impossible to deny. Colour has the ability to inspire a variety of emotions, from social to thoughtful to restful, just by virtue of where it lands on the spectrum. Colour has the power to make or break a room. This is why we, as interior designers, love working with colour. On the other hand, this is also the reason so many people are hesitant to use it in their homes.

longevity. In this space, we opted for a fresh off-white colour on the walls, the which is elegant and urban; trendy yet timeless. White is well suited to rooms with a variety of textures and finishes. The “secondary colour” is next in line, occupying 30 per cent of the space. This is used to contrast the dominant hue, to make the space really “pop.” ▹

Want to dip your toe in the paint pool, but not sure where to start? Draw your colour inspiration from something that visually appeals to you. This could be a great piece of art, a fabric swatch that caught your eye, or a photograph. The beauty of this exercise is that there’s really no wrong answer. If you love it, then it’s right. This stunning urban home (pictured above) features high ceilings, ample windows and bright natural light. We enhanced these wonderful attributes of space and light with a contemporary colour palette of off-white, grey and yellow, applied using the tried-and-true 60-30-10 Rule. These are the proportions in which your tri-colour palette should be divvied up, in order to achieve good balance. The “dominant colour” is the one that covers the most area - about 60 per cent, most commonly on the walls. Neutral colours are a popular preference, given the large area of coverage, chosen for their versatility and

HOME DÉCOR

We chose a warm medium grey for furnishings and the rug underfoot, as a sharp contrast to the white backdrop without the heaviness of black. Grey is conservative, reliable and assuring, generally a great option in living rooms, bathrooms, dining rooms. Grey also happens to be another trending neutral these days, so it delivers the trend factor with the eternal appeal of a neutral colour. The accent colour comes in the smallest and arguably punchiest doses. This colour will occupy the remaining 10 per cent of your space. Go ahead and be bold! Intriguing accent pieces, artwork and textiles are a great way to introduce a vibrant shade. Bonus: this is easy and cost-efficient to change, since it’s only 10 per cent of your space. In this room, yellow is our accent colour of choice. This sunny hue appears in small doses, but it’s enough to instantly warm up the home’s overarching contempo-cool vibe. Yellow is stimulating, and a perfect choice for living areas, laundry and kitchen areas. Colour plays an important role in the overall style of your space, and it can make or break the aesthetic you’re aiming to achieve. The best advice is to consider how a colour makes you feel, how you and your guests will want to feel in the space, and how a particular colour will work with the rest of the home. Remember: when all elements are in sync, you’ll have a harmonious home. ◆
