Designers, Rachel Keach and Diane Ernjakovic.

One Three Design Inc. was founded by Diane Ernjakovic and Rachel Keach, who are the Principal Designers behind this successful company. With over a decade of experience in both residential and commercial design, this boutique interior design firm continues to be known for its stylish and functional creations. Diane and Rachel are regular Design Experts on Cityline and have completed work on HGTV’s new show, Buyers Bootcamp with Scott McGillivray. Their work has been featured in several House & Home videos and has been published in the book, The Complete Book of Clean.

The clients had purchased this home, but never felt that it met the potential of some other homes they’d considered buying. They wanted their living space to feel casual, inviting and comfortable. One member of the family requested that her office be flashier and pop with colour, whereas another member wished for a more Zen office space with room for lounging. This family had two young children, so it was important that the furniture and storage was kid friendly. →

Diane and Rachel made sure that each of the family members personalities had a major influence in the design and look of each room, in order to suit their needs and styles. The home design consisted of a fully renovated family room (except floors), his and hers offices, kitchen, powder room, foyer, mud room, master bedroom, master ensuite, custom master closet and guest bedroom. They installed custom drapery, art, lighting and added new furniture in all rooms. →

Star-Studded Artists for Peace and Justice Festival Gala Presented by BOVET raises $1.4 million in support of education in Haiti.

An impressive 1.4 million dollars was raised at the 10th Annual Artist for Peace and Justice (APJ) Festival Gala, presented by BOVET, held at the Windsor Arms Hotel during the Toronto film festival. Co-chaired by Natasha Koifman and Suzanne Boyd, the event was co-hosted by an influential team, including APJ board co-chairs Ben Stiller and Susan Sarandon, along with Jackson Browne, George Stroumboulopoulos, Yannick and Shantelle Bisson.

APJ’s mission is to encourage peace and social justice, working to alleviate poverty around the world. The organization’s immediate efforts serve the poorest communities in Haiti with programs in education and training in creative industries, while expanding the reach globally by partnering with effective local organizations to give young women access to quality education. Thanks to strategic partner BOVET, APJ is able to give 100% of every dollar towards meeting this mission, having raised over $31 million for the organization since its inaugural launch event in 2009 during the Toronto International Film Festival.

“Ten years ago, I stood here in the same place at the Windsor Arms Hotel, after creating a live art red carpet led by Peter Tunney, and observed as many of us who are in the room today banded together to raise $50K to help children in Haiti,” said Natasha Koifman, Canada Board Chair, US Board of Directors and Festival Gala Co-Host. “What an honour and privilege it is to be standing here today, a decade later, after raising more than $30M to build a high school that allows 3,500 students annually a chance at an education they wouldn’t otherwise have had. We all did this together and we should all be very, very proud of difference we make each and every day in the lives of the Haitian people.” Koifman then went on to thank and pay tribute to attendees and supporters who were there at the inaugural event in 2009. Generous sponsors for this years’ event to-date include BOVET, Birks, Stella Artois, AUDI, the Windsor Arms Hotel, Air Canada and NKPR.

OPENER is re-energizing the art of flight with a safe and affordable flying vehicle that can free its operators from the everyday restrictions of ground transportation.

BlackFly is a single-seat Personal Aerial Vehicle (PAV) designed and built for a new world of three-dimensional transportation. BlackFly has simple controls requiring no special skills to master and operate safely. Though BlackFly has full amphibious capabilities, it is primarily designed to easily operate from small grassy areas and travel distances of up to 40 miles at a speed of 72 mph. “We will offer competitive pricing in an endeavour to democratize three-dimensional personal transportation. Safety has been our primary driving goal in the development of this new technology. BlackFly operators will be required to complete company-mandated vehicle familiarization and operator training. In Canada, ultralight pilot licences are also required,” said Marcus Leng, CEO. In House offers an unique, relaxed shopping experience.

The OPENER team has spent the last nine years in stealth mode, designing, developing, and testing new innovative technologies which have now evolved into the zero-emission BlackFly vehicles. Fault-tolerant design and triple modular redundancy reside at the core of these vehicles. Eight propulsion systems, spread across two wings, provide for multiple-failure security. Years of continuous testing, combined with 1,400+ flights and 12,000+ miles flown, form the bedrock of OPENER’s development program.

Whether you are completely redecorating or just looking for that one statement piece, our home decor and lifestyle store can help you find exactly what you are looking for. Everyone has different needs. We offer Canadian made furniture available in custom sizes and fabrics. We receive new merchandise weekly. The store is always changing, which keeps our customers returning. All products are carefully selected by owners, Pam and Mark Chisholm.

After working collaboratively with Transport Canada for several years, on July 6, 2018, OPENER received permission to operate BlackFly as a Basic Ultralight Aircraft. OPENER hopes to continue to collaborate with Transport Canada to safely and progressively expand the use and operating profile of these uniquely-capable vehicles.

IN HOUSE IS YOUR GO TO DESTINATION FOR ALL HOME DECORATING NEEDS. Decorating Services Available.

OPENER’s long-term vision is to integrate these highly-efficient vehicles into a rural/urban commuting network. These networks would be powered by renewable energy sources requiring only a fraction of the transportation energy used currently. ■

Van Lapoyan, President and CEO of VHL Developments, built this property from the ground up. Finding his love for architecture in Paris, where he earned his Master of Science degree in engineering, he decided to build a home for himself inspired by the Palace of Versailles in Paris.

It was important to create comfortable spaces for our modern daily lives, without sacrificing the grandiose feeling of the main foyer,” explained Van Lapoyan when discussing obstacles faced during construction. Van Lapoyan was involved on a daily basis in every single detail, stating that “each wall, floor and ceiling were planned and revised several times to achieve the final product.” →

The homeowner brought in the Jodie Rosen Design (JRD) team to make the house feel more like a home. With only a few photos of inspiration provided by the client, Jodie and her team began to find interesting pieces for each of the main spaces. Partial to a modern, Italian styling, the homeowner had a very clear sense of what he wanted to see, and which pieces needed to be incorporated into the overall design.

This home is made up of mostly bespoke and designer elements to increase the home’s sophistication. 14’ ceilings provided a challenge to create a space that felt full and comfortable. The team was able to overcome this encounter by picking detailed and unusual pieces and not being overly concerned with physically trying to fill the height. All major furniture selections were low lying and sleek. →

“These bold pops of colour were the counterpoint to neutral moments of grey, black and white” SAYS JODIE ROSEN.

The Hermes orange Poltrona Frau chair in the family room was a great starting point that helped dictate the colour palette and enhanced the cool factor throughout. Orange and navy are a common thread running through all rooms on the main floor.

HOME DÉCOR

A neutral and masculine look was made prominent for the master lounge and bedroom area. Working on the pretence of a sexy and moody vibe, the space is completely void of colour. Rugs with opposing styles, one soft and organic while the other sharp and graphic, were able to link the spaces together while still maintaining the same tone palette. Sconces were chosen for bedside lighting as a way to keep the tabletop clean and to highlight the angled wall behind the bed.

The final touch to this beautiful transformation was the fabulous art that was brought in by a local art dealer. JRD worked with the client to find pieces that would punctuate the furniture and also spoke to him, as art is such a subjective experience.

A very collaborative project, this space is true melding of the clients’ vision and the curation of Jodie Rosen Design, finishing with spectacular results. ■

FOUR TIMES YOU NEED TO

UPDATE YOUR WILL BY JEFF FINCH, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PL ANNER // 416 695 8600

3 // CARING FOR THE DISABLED.

ne thing that many people forget to do after a life change is to update their will. Most people write it, file it and then forget about it. However, “wills need periodic updating, especially when a change comes along,” says Christine Van Cauwenberghe, Vice-President, Tax and Estate Planning for Investors Group. Here are four times where taking another look at this critical document is a must.

Having a special needs beneficiary in the family - such as a child born with health issues or a family member who develops them later in life - could necessitate a will change, too, as you’ll need to think ahead to that person’s needs over the long term. 4 // COMMON LAW AND DIVORCE.

If you’re living common law, you should definitely be drawing up a will as surviving common-law spouses don’t have the same rights of inheritance as a married person in many Canadian jurisdictions.

1 // IT’S A GIRL – OR BOY!

A newborn needs lots of attention early on, but the child will need even more care if something happens to you and your spouse. It’s in the will where you’ll indicate who will look after your child if you can’t. “Designating a guardian is crucial so that someone is prepared to take physical custody of your children and their assets,” says Van Cauwenberghe. Ensure the new child gets a fair inheritance, especially if you already have other children who are already named in the will.

“It’s important to know the rules in your province and to structure your will and estate plan in a way that best reflects your intentions with respect to your partner,” says Van Cauwenberghe.

2 // GETTING MARRIED, AGAIN.

On the flipside, a separation or divorce will necessitate a will change. Pay special attention to beneficiary designations on your pensions, RRSPs, RRIFs, TFSAs, insurance and group benefits. You don’t want those dollars going to your ex.

Getting hitched later in life, when one or both of you already has kids, should trigger a will update, too. But be prepared – it’s going to be a complicated revision. You’ll likely need to make sure that your child’s inheritance is not entirely up to the discretion of the step-parent. The will needs to carefully state which children get what, and what happens if a surviving spouse remarries. “It’s important to ensure that children from a previous relationship aren’t disinherited when you have a new spouse,” says Van Cauwenberghe.

LUXURYLISTED.CA

Revising a will is easier said than done. That’s why it’s a good idea to enlist your lawyer and professional advisor in the process. ■

THE ALL-NEW LINCOLN

N AV I G A T O R BY BOB M c HUGH // LINCOLNCANADA.COM

“Quiet luxury is both a look and a feeling,” according to Kumar Galhotra, President of the Lincoln Motor Company. “The all-new Navigator embodies both. The sleek styling, spacious interior and technology are all designed to make each trip effortless.”

The new fourth-generation Lincoln Navigator was voted North American Truck of the Year. It’s a killer redesign that gives this full-sized SUV immediate presence (day or night) and it simply oozes power and status. Yet, maybe just in my mind, Navigator is the ultimate, loveable family wagon. Super roomy with sumptuous seating for seven or eight, all the latest tech features, a ton of cargo space and it can pull a monster RV… hey kids, WallyWorld here we come! In Canada, Navigator comes in two trim levels and two body styles. Select ($88,150) and Reserve ($91,150) are the trim levels offered. Extended body Navigator L is about 30cm (1ft) longer, has a longer wheelbase, almost doubles cargo space behind the third row seats and adds about $3,000 to the price tag. A multitude of options are also available to personalize your Navigator. The bold new face of this Navigator features the latest signature Lincoln grille and super-cool LED headlights. They’re adaptive headlights with a clever greet feature that’s part of an owner welcome lighting sequence, which also includes a luminous Lincoln logo mat by the front doors. Lay a hand on a door handle (also illuminated) and power step rails slide out from under the body, to make entry into the tall cabin easier. →

Inside, the seating is exceptionally good, especially the aptly named Perfect Position 30-way power adjustable front seats. Memory settings can be used to recall the multitude of individual driver preferences for seats, mirrors and adjustable foot pedal positions, as well as climate control and entertainment settings. And yes, the seats have air ventilation and massage features. Under hood, this Navigator is powered by a surprisingly fuel-efficient twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 that can pump out 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. Power gets to the wheels via a new slick-shifting ten-speed automatic

transmission and a multi-mode four-wheeldrive system, designed to improve both acceleration and highway fuel economy (rated at 11.4 L/100km). A simple twist of a knob selects one of six drive modes and retunes the adaptive suspension, transmission shift points, 4x4 drive distribution, dash information displays and more.


AU TOMOT I V E

Staying connected is not a problem with six USB ports, four 12-volt power outlets and even a house-like 110-volt outlet. An ultra-convenient wireless phone charger in the first-row centre console pocket is also available. The centre-dash multi-media display is a Lincoln version of the Ford Sync system with mostly touch screen controls, but thankfully Lincoln has added conventional knobs or switches for most common functions. While not a big fan of push-button transmission drive selectors, I accept that it is the Lincoln way, and could easily live with the “piano key” like selector used in Navigator. In addition, there are manual override paddle-shifters on the steering wheel, and ten gears allow lots of paddling. Navigator is not just big, it’s tall and heavy. Certainly not sports car ingredients, yet, its twisty road manners were a pleasant surprise. Steering effort is light yet response was reasonably quick and predictable and it feels like your driving a smaller, more agile vehicle. When set in comfort mode the suspension really does an impressive job of soaking up road imperfections. Yes, new Navigator should put Lincoln back as a leader in the full-sized luxury SUV class.

BLISSFULLY QUIET & COMFORTABLE

So quiet, Navigator allows you to have a normal tone meaningful conversation with your kids in the rear seats, at highway speeds. TOO QUIET & COMFORTABLE

Lincoln Motor Company is on the move these days with exciting new products and a huge new emphasis on customer service and product quality. The award-winning Lincoln Navigator, reviewed in this issue of Luxury Listed, is a perfect example of new-wave Lincoln, and there’s more… LINCOLN MKZ HYBRID

Surprised that Lincoln has a hybrid vehicle in its product line? A good looking mid-sized sedan, the hybrid version of MKZ is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder gas engine aided by an electric motor. On-board charging plus regenerative braking keep its hybrid battery pack charged, so there’s no need to plug it into the electrical grid. A big plus for the MKZ Hybrid buyers is its outstanding combined (city/highway) fuel economy rating of just 5.9 L/100 km.

LINCOLN CONTINENTAL

The much heralded return of its elegant flagship full-size sedan, the Continental, has injected fresh enthusiasm into the Lincoln brand. Its graceful styling lines smoothly incorporate door handles that have a unique power latching system. It allows touch-button door opening and gentle closing with a secure power-cinching feature. Yes, the big Lincoln sedan is all about style, comfort and effortless power.

So comfortable, you may find Matthew McConaughey snoozing in the rear seat.

his exquisite, one-of-a-kind Toronto property leaves you feeling as though you’ve entered a 17th Century French Palace. This ultraluxurious home spared no expense and successfully merged old world artisanship with modern functionality. We sat down with Realtor, Khoren Mardoyan, who is representing this home and asked him to share his thoughts on this architectural masterpiece.

Q: This is one of the most incredible homes I’ve ever seen. What was your reaction

when you first walked through this amazing piece of architecture?

A: As soon as I walked in, I felt that I was in the 17th Century and was certain that if Louis XIII or Cardinal Richelieu would have been there, they too would have wanted to buy it. Q: Selling any home comes with its own set of challenges. What are the challenges

you face when selling a home over $20 million-dollars?

A: There are no challenges because there are enough qualified buyers coming to Toronto, as well as buyers living in Toronto, some of whom are looking at this extravagant property very seriously. Q: How would you describe the buyers who are interested in a home like this? A: The buyers interested in a home like this are affluent families who are looking for a one of a kind property to live in, such as this this one. Q: What is it about this home that will attract buyers? A: Everything about this home will attract buyers. The architect/builder/owner spared no expense when creating this masterpiece, which offers the appearance of 17th Century French architecture. Q: Is there a commonality in terms of what they are looking for in this home? A: Yes, all potential buyers that have reviewed the property so far have being looking

for an elegant and luxurious home. They have appreciated the workmanship, the frescoes and materials used in construction and compilation of this edifice. →

Q: What is your marketing strategy? A: Due to the fact that this is a one of a kind property, we created an aggressive marketing plan in order to bring it to the international market, as well as the local market. This was achieved through different streams of media and by word of mouth. Q: If you could show only one aspect of this home, what would it be and why? A: I don’t think there is a specific aspect of this home that can be singled out. All components of the home are award winning in their own way. I believe buyers have to see it to believe and appreciate it. Q: What is it about your job that gets you excited? A: The part of my job that gets me the most excited is not knowing what my next assignment will be. This gives me the motivation to address my client’s needs in a professional way. Q: What are the things that separate you from other Realtors? A: We all have the same license and same educational curriculum. However, some

realtors, including myself, organize our work habits daily and treat our clients with the highest level of respect. I also make it a point to upgrade my knowledge and skills by subscribing to a variety of interesting courses related to real estate. Q: Can you tell us about your Brokerage? A: Home Life Vision Realty Inc., owned and operated by Broker of Record,

Mr. Ken Kakoullis, is made up of about 175 realtors, 30 mortgage specialists and a legal team. This ensures that we support each other and have back up information from our legal and mortgage teams, in order to guarantee a smooth and successful experience for our clients. ■

THE NEW VANGUARD TOURBILLON MINUTE REPEATER

onfirming its reputation of Master of Complications, Franck Muller has produced an extraordinary openworked minute repeater. The combination of Haute Horlogerie craftsmanship and high expertise allowed Franck Muller to manufacture this incredibly complicated movement. A magical complication to reflect the savoir-faire and creativity of Franck Muller. Powered by a manual mechanical movement of 389 components and 33 jewels that is wholly designed in-house, the timepiece features an impressive power reserve of 60 hours. Furthermore, the Vanguard Tourbillon Minute Repeater features a large watch case built to accommodate the space needed by the complex movement. The Minute Repeater mechanism can be activated at will by means of a slide-bottom situated at 8 o’clock. The hammers chime two gongs, sounding the hours, quarters and minutes. This newly skeletonized timepiece showcases the incredible Franck Muller savoir-faire in one of the most complex feats of watchmaking. It embodies the fantastic match between innovation, modern design and the respect of the Haute Horlogerie traditions. â–

FALL 2018


HOME DÉCOR

This custom home was built with family in mind. The open concept flow of the home lends itself to raising kids, as well as entertaining.

With 3 kids under the age of 5, the homeowners were extremely busy. It was a priority to have an open concept kitchen and family room area, so that it was both functional and easy to keep an eye on the little ones. KITCHEN

The clients wanted a classic feel to the home with a modern twist. Avenue design inc. created the kitchen uppers in a crisp white shaker profile, but then designed the lowers, island and pantry to have more of a flat panel modern look. The exhaust fan was clad in a marble patterned porcelain tile and offset with a simple grey subway tile backsplash. →

HOME DÉCOR

FAMILY ROOM

The clean lines move into the family room, where they incorporated both open and closed storage. A vertical fireplace was added, instead of the usual linear one, to enhance drama to an otherwise sleek wall and covered with the same tile as the kitchen exhaust for continuity in the open space.

HOME DÉCOR

Mudroom Storage

MUDROOM

Since the clients use the garage entrance more often than the front door, it was very important to have a great mudroom designed to store all of the shoes and jackets. They also needed to have a small sink for washing up. By adding closed storage wardrobes, it keeps the space looking tidy and organized. OFFICE

The layout of the house didn’t allow for a front hall closet, so the team designed built-in space in the office to not only house office supplies and sundries, but to also act as a wardrobe for jackets and shoes. Avenue design inc. believes that millwork cabinetry is always better, not only aesthetically but functionally, as it can serve many different functions and looks much more custom. →

HOME DÉCOR

LAUNDRY ROOM

Laundry should be enjoyable and not so much of a chore. Who wouldn’t love to have a bright and happy laundry room like this one? The design team added a pop of colour into the backsplash and included a rod over the sink for hanging clothing to dry.

HOME DÉCOR

MASTER ENSUITE

The master bath was transformed into an oasis of calm. A large frameless glass shower opens into a custom floating vanity, with a thick apron of sleek Caesarstone and a row of drawers below. The semi recessed sinks and wall mounted faucets are reminiscent of a luxury hotel, but with the added benefit of storage incorporated into the mirrored towers on either side. Adding a feature wall of wood tile behind the free-standing tub created a dramatic backdrop for the graphic pendant hanging above. The toilet is hidden behind a frosted wall of glass across from the shower, so that the bathroom is able to be used dually. â–

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT

Novembers Burn

RICHARD AHNERT Above: Clan Right: Ain’t No Place

Toronto-based artist Richard Ahnert takes anthropomorphic painting to a new level, lacing it with a quiet, yet unmistakable animism – an abiding kinship between human and animal. He uses the relationship between animals and humans to explore themes of emotion, metaphor, and narrative with a satirical twist. Storytelling, understated humour, and deep reflection are at the heart of his practice. Richard began exhibiting his work in 2010 and has shown in exhibitions and galleries in both Canada and the States. His work has won awards and can be found in private collections and businesses throughout North America, Europe and Australia. ■ INSTAGR AM:
