2021 Polestar 2

Polestar Cars has just announced the formal pricing of the Swedish brand’s first pure electric car, the 2021 Polestar 2. The electric performance fastback has an MSRP of $59,900 in the United States.

The MSRP of the Polestar 2 is below state incentive thresholds in critical markets such as California and New York. Additionally, this price enables state rebates of approximately $2,000 in certain states*, for total tax incentives of up to $9,500 when combined with the federal electric vehicle tax credit.**

“We are quite enthusiastic to announce the U.S. pricing for the Polestar 2,” said Gregor Hembrough, Head of Polestar USA. “The MSRP is lower than we originally targeted, and will be extended to all of our current reservation holders.”

“With an online purchase option, lower pricing, considerable tax incentives, and production already underway, the Polestar 2 is well-positioned for a successful entry into the U.S. market,” continued Hembrough. 

Polestar also announced option pricing for the Polestar 2 depending on which add ons someone hopes to add to the car. The performance pack comes in at $5,000 and the Nappa Leather Interior is priced at $4,000. The stunning 20-inch Alloy Wheels and the Metallic Paint Colors both come in at $1,200.

This vehicle is priced in the same range as the 2021 Tesla models that have been released. The 2021 Tesla Model Y is starting at $49,990 and the 2021 Tesla Model S is priced beginning at $69,420. The current average price for an electric car is around $55,600, so the Polestar 2 falls right on par with this average. 

The Polestar 2 arrives with 408 hp and 487 lb.-ft. of torque, very powerful for an electric car. The vehicle also features all-wheel drive and a 78 kWh battery pack, which enables considerable EV range. The car has an MPGe of 96 in the city and 88 on the highway.

The Polestar 2 is also the first car in the world to feature a built-in infotainment system powered by Android, featuring voice command via the Google Assistant, Google Maps with EV charging support and app downloads via the Google Play Store. The car features innovative technology throughout. The interior of the hatchback is modern yet minimal creating an opulent feel for passengers.  

The Polestar 2, which began production in late March, has already begun delivery to U.S. reservation holders in summer 2020. With a digital retail model, the Polestar 2 is available to purchase on Polestar.com.

In order to replace car dealerships, the brand will soon open physical retail showrooms—Polestar Spaces—where non-commissioned Polestar Specialists will be able to assist customers with product information and test drives. Polestar Spaces are designed specifically to allow people to explore the cars without the pressure of committing to a purchase. The first of these locations have opened in California and New York as of late summer 2020, and the next additional locations are currently set to open in Denver and Austin. 

The Polestar 2 is available for sale in all 50 states and Polestar will announce lease and retail finance options for the vehicle in the near future.

In the pursuit of accelerating sustainable mobility, Polestar, the electric performance car brand, today released a multi-episode video series featuring Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac. A champion for climate justice, Isaac delves deeper into Polestar innovations which aim to improve today’s society, and that of the future.

In partnership with The Wall Street Journal, “Making aNew” is a five-part mini docuseries which seeks the truths behind Polestar’s ethos and advancements in sustainability, electrification and performance. The video series is available to view today at www.polestar.com/us/making-anew.

“As the automotive world moves to electrification, important terms such as sustainability and clean energy are becoming generic slogans with diminished meaning,” said Oscar Isaac. “After learning about the company, I feel better about driving a Polestar because the brand is transparent about how its cars are produced, accountable for its impact on the planet and taking action to truly offset the footprint of its vehicles.”

Since the launch of the brand in 2017, Polestar has become synonymous with the development of new technologies, harnessing refined performance and incorporating unconventional materials in the development of its vehicles.

More recently, the brand began publishing detailed climate impact reports of its electric vehicles as they leave the production line, aiming to be the most transparent company in the automotive industry. As a proof point of this pledge, Polestar has published a full lifecycle analysis of the Polestar 2 Electric Fastback, and will release its first annual sustainability report in March of this year.

“We are determined to be the guiding star for our industry, accelerating the shift to more sustainable mobility. Innovation, clean energy, circular materials and transparency are areas of particular focus. A great example of this is the use of blockchain to improve the accountability of our cobalt supply chain,” said Fredrika Klarén, Head of Sustainability at Polestar. “Collaborating with visible activists like Oscar, who are as passionate about carbon-neutrality as we are, will help raise awareness and understanding, paving the path for a more sustainable future.”

8 Luxurious Design Inspirations For Your Dream Home


Ready to give shape to the dreams you’ve always nurtured about your luxury home? While it’s exciting to design your envisioned living space, the process to achieve the right balance of form and function can be daunting.

Regardless of style, creating a luxury home design calls for special attention to detail, the ability to see the big picture, and a certain degree of cohesiveness. But at the end of the day, your luxury abode should echo your personal flair.

Considering all of these factors, it can be overwhelming to determine home design ideas that can be successfully turned into reality. In this blog post, we’ve handpicked some luxury features that will serve as your guide and inspiration to get started.

  1. Experiment with patterns and neutrals. While neutrals and pastels can add warmth and cosiness to a space, patterns are the way to go if you’re looking to add some drama and depth to your home’s interior. Combining the two in varying ranges and scales is a great way to infuse visual interest in a room.
  2. Go bold in small spaces
    Shades of white and neutral tones are the most common choices when it comes to small spaces. But who said that’s the norm? Go against the grain and opt for brave colours and graphic prints to let small spaces like powder room and narrow walkways come alive.
  3. Let your hallway stand out
    If your colour choices are usually more reserved, step outside of your comfort zone by choosing a bold hue like purple for a hallway. It is unexpected and can be a chic backdrop for showcasing an art collection, as in this design by David Hicks.
  4. Create an aesthetic mudroom
    There’s no doubt about the functionality of a mudroom — it’s a brilliant way to utilise space where your extra belongings and muddy shoes can be dumped before entering the home. Plus, it offers a great opportunity to add extra storage in a busy household. But why go basic when designing one? Using patterned tiles, high-end hooks, and custom cabinets, you can create stylish mudrooms that can be as minimal or as extravagant as you wish!
  5. Design a home office with custom features
    With the growth of home working and popularity of remote working trends, a home office is no longer an afterthought. It’s also no longer a boring space where you simply get your work done. With a bit of imagination along with the creative use of custom décor, storage, and furniture, you can turn it into a luxurious private space that will inspire productivity and elegance.
  6. Let the high-end theatre experience come home
    With a well-designed home theatre, it’s possible to elevate your viewing experience up a notch! Assemble the necessary elements such lighting, visuals, and sound and blend them beautifully with smart design and stunning décor to create your personal ‘den’ for enjoying your favourite movies and shows.
  7. Include mirrors in the mix
    Mirrors are an incredible interior design device that can be used in a range of different ways to reflect light and create an illusion of spaciousness. Particularly, LED mirror, when added to your bathroom and smaller spaces, can effectively ramp up the luxury look and feel.
  8. Make a statement with artwork display
    When it comes to showcasing your artworks, sky is the limit. You might want to practice restrain or indulge in excesses — it all depends of your taste and choice of art. Go about it by placing your collection of artworks and collectibles strategically all over your living space. Or, choose a wall to create a gallery of artworks in minimalist frames. Both treatments work can wonderfully to create a big statement. With these ideas as your guide, take yourself on a journey to build your luxury home that reflects who you are.

KLûK CGDT × Montague Real Estate

Two of South Africa’s most visually iconic properties, and the bespoke creation of celebrity fashion house KLûK CGDT, are now available for purchase through London-based Montague Real Estate.

Ilkley, located near the coast of Cape Town’s exclusive Atlantic Seaboard, comprises of two three-bedroom luxury apartments. It comes with panoramic views extending over both the Atlantic Ocean and the natural beauty of mountainous Signal Hill.

Malcolm Kluk and Christiaan Gabriel du Toit, the founders and creative force behind the international award-winning fashion house KLûK CGDT, Built in 2018, every aspect of the modern, brutalist properties – from the kitten white walls to the bespoke terracotta tiles.

Arguably Africa’s most established designer pair, Kluk, who apprenticed under John Galliano, and du Toit have had their designs worn by the likes of Naomi Campbell, Beyoncé, Shakira and Kate Moss.

Three times African Designers of the Year winners, their works have also featured in the likes of American Vogue, Elle, French Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Spruce, I-D and Dazed.

The Ilkley development, which was Kluk and du Toit’s first property addition to their design portfolio, is priced at ZAR 17.5m (£765,000) for Ilkley 1 and ZAR 22.5m (£983,000) for upper floor apartment Ilkley 2.

London-based Montague Real Estate facilitates the sale of the properties. Montague Real Estate is a boutique real estate firm and private office specializing in complex global property investments and acquisitions. This is their first venture into the African luxury residential property market following international expansion. Further projects are in the pipeline for later this year.

Amenities:

With each property featuring three en-suite bedrooms, the apartments also offer air-conditioned ocean and mountain views, a private garden, a wood burning fireplace and a seamlessly linked entrance hall and dining room.

Residents will also be able to enjoy state of the art plug-and-play home automation systems, an expansive terrace and an ocean or Signal Hill nature-reserve facing swimming pool.

A secure, undercover, off-street parking in a naturally ventilated landscape garage and elevators to all levels compliments both apartments.

The environmental impact of the apartments was a major consideration during the design process; as such, there is chemical-free filtration systems in the pools, automated LED lighting, and water supplied by efficient heat pumps. The orientation of the house minimizes heat loss in winter and provides shade in the summer. The use of coffered slabs reduces the carbon footprint by using less concrete in the build.

Malcolm Kluk, co-founder of KLûK CGDT, said:

“We’re really happy to be working with Montague Real Estate with their first project in Africa. These properties will offer a discerning buyer both style and substance, with the best that beautiful Cape Town has to offer.”

Thomas Balashev, Founder and CEO of Montague Real Estate, said:

“Ilkley is a truly unique development, the creation of Africa’s most exciting design talent, and a fantastic entrance for us to the South African market.

“Opportunities to work with properties and designers of this pedigree are so rare, so we are naturally delighted to be able to facilitate the sale of what is KLûK CGDT’s iconic vision in property form.”

“Environment is your incubator to flourish; nurture growth and manifest success.” – 360 Magazine

The design story of interior designer Justin Lowery proves that the environment you’re in is as important as the company you keep. His latest renovation of a Bronx live workspace demonstrates both balance and practicality. According to Lowery, these are necessary components to any multi-functional space that exists to entertain and foster productivity. As working from home becomes more commonplace, many are motivated to effectively utilize the space of their residence. Yet doing so, especially when dealing with limited room sizes and budgets, can be challenging. Thus, many are turning to interior designers or technicians, usually found on AngelList, to inject an aura of panache and pragmatism into their homes.

You ought to begin with a purge; creating a clean slate and space enabling you to establish a clear direction and plan for your environment’s layout and purpose. This spatial cleanse is, perhaps, the most difficult part. But, it is necessary to confront your inner hoarder and to permit the creation of a new space. We all hold on to things that we no longer need which results in clutter that can weigh heavily on the energetic composition of a room.

Following this, liven your environment by making subtle yet effective changes such as swapping out dresser hardware for $5 champagne brass handles for a soft and polished finish. Continue this innovative spirit by purchasing some elegant glass bowls, plates, and wine glasses from Amazon as well as new silverware and a glossy copper pot set.

Accent pillows can be the finishing touch that tie the look of a room together. They offer comfort while incorporating different hues or a fun pattern. Throw pillows like Pillow Pops by Shani Moran serve as an easy way to change the style of your space without breaking the bank. The Pillow Pops come in a variety of designs, shades and textures, so there are options to fit anyone’s taste. These pillows are also versatile, with a hidden zip enclosure to change the pillow cover based on the occasion or season. 

When attempting to promote the entertainment aspects of a space, consider the Roku soundbar. It’s dynamic bass and crisp audio allows sound to permeate through a room. This exceptional reverberation is accentuated by the cinematic presence of a Roku 50” Westinghouse TV whose built-in voice assistant allows for an obedient and malleable audio environment. When eager to intensify the sound quality, you ought to contemplate the Altice Amplify speaker by Optimum whose curved and sleek characteristics offer a 360° immersive experience. The addition of a Roku Express streaming player attached to a versatile BENQ 32” monitor will create a smooth and versatile mood available for both entertainment and work. 

Another great addition is the Ninja Air Fryer. Getting another appliance may seem unnecessary; however, the Ninja Air Fryer is a must to make meals easier. Whether you’re air frying, air roasting, reheating or dehydrating the Ninja has got you covered.

Additionally, consider practical changes like a new coat of paint or a fresh pop of color on focal areas within your space. Benjamin Moore offers a plethora of ways to refresh things and create the illusion of larger space, making your home office inviting and open. In order to add an exciting new dimension to the room, use contrasting colors. “Black excellence” is a contrasting option to consider if protecting the natural molding details are a concern such as the outline of doors and base boards. If you have pets and young children, then this option is a no brainer.

Adding a tasteful artistic piece or a floral arrangement freshens the décor and will positively impact any space. Consider updating light fixtures and window treatments to bring your full vision to life. If your budget permits, then adding texture with a tile backsplash to your kitchen might facilitate a lighter atmosphere. Repositioning is one of the cheapest manner to renovate your space; finding new areas to move existing furniture will allow new perspectives to manifest. Make this renovation process fun – it’s a great time for bonding with friends, family, or maybe an expert.

Transforming Your Home With Self-Care In Mind

If you’re searching for methods of transforming your home into a self-care sanctuary, you may be surprised to know that you don’t exactly have to spend a fortune to achieve this healing goal. Your home should showcase optimal comfortability level and while you should view your home as the one place in the world you can truly let go and just relax, you will benefit significantly health-wise from making small impactful adjustments to your day-to-day lifestyle as well. From reducing anxiety and stress to an improved ability to find quality sleep on a regular basis, making necessary changes will benefit your life in many ways. Quality sleep is necessary if you want your energy to be at a high level so it would be great to think about getting a new mattress. If you are not sure what type of bed you need for yourself, it’s always a good idea to look for mattress reviews that can help you find what you need the most. Therefore, incorporating self-care routines such as hand and nail care, while making physical changes to your home will be an effort that will continue to pay off. 

The following home adjustments will increase your quality of life and transform your home into the ultimate calming sanctuary.

Relaxation Through Nature

Bringing nature indoors has become an increasingly popular design trend in recent years, and for several notable reasons. While the visual appeal of natural elements, such as pot plants and elegant wall fountains for the indoors will drastically transform your bland space instantly, the health benefits of nature will impact your quality of life through inducing calm and relaxation. This is because simply being around nature will help you feel more at ease, and there is ample scientific evidence to support the fact. Even though you don’t have to transform your home into an indoor jungle, adding a few indoor plants and incorporating the soothing sounds of running water with even a small water wall will be enough to summon an absolutely blissful atmosphere. 

Other methods of bringing nature in, suggest that creating a small and practical kitchen herb garden or creating a display shelf of assorted crystals and gems are also incredibly popular. It is key to avoid going overboard and rather build up a natural aroma in your home as you go, as this will help you actively create an interior design you are comfortable with, rather than making extreme changes that may feel overwhelming.

Focus On Comfort

So many homeowners make the all too common mistake of designing their homes with visual appeal in mind while neglecting elements such as comfort. Even though the visual appeal is important, many would agree that it is far more important to feel comfortable in you home rather than focus on methods of impressing guests with your modern design talent. Therefore, a simple way of transforming your home without spending too much is to simply assess your current home design and consider which elements are cramping the comfort level. Perhaps you could add a few more cosy scatter cushions, or remove overwhelming decor items that take up space and harden the atmosphere. Your home should be decorated for you, and not for your guests. Adding comfort items such as candles, cushions, and area rugs is a great and affordable way of enhancing comfort in your home.

Keep Your Home Clean And Fresh

There’s no denying that countless homeowners around the world truly underestimate the impacts of a clean and fresh home. As many feel that a cluttered and cramped living space impacts their quality of life, a clean home will have the opposite effect. However, if you are not entirely fond of cleaning, it would be wise to consider creating a cleaning schedule that allows you to complete one or two tasks per day as this will help you reduce the overall effort, while you are able to keep your home clean in general. You could designate Mondays for dusting, Tuesdays for laundry, and so on. Alternatively, you could also craft a calming cleaning schedule and change your perspective on the chore by considering cleaning as a detox of your home that will ultimately detox your daily life from dust, clutter, and other smothering negatives that live in our homes.

Repaint With Relaxation In Mind

Painting your home is an extremely affordable way of increasing property value, and instantly sprucing up your property as well. However, if you opt to repaint with relaxation in mind by opting for calming colours such as neutral colours and soothing tones, you will be able to notice an immediate impact on the general atmosphere in your home. Therefore, you should avoid bright and bold colours such as emerald green and shocking pink as these are by no means relaxing colours. Grey palettes and pastels are perfect when considering your comfort.

4 Easy Bedroom Makeover Tips You’ll Love

Your bedroom is the place in your home where you should feel the most comfortable and love spending time in but having the same layout and decoration in your bedroom for a long time can start to get not only boring but also depressing. Don’t let your bedroom become a source of stress and boredom. Try out some of these four easy makeover tips to breathe new life into your room!

A Splash of Paint Goes a Long Way

Sometimes it’s the simplest things that make the biggest difference. Whether you’re completely changing the look of a wall or just rejuvenating it with a fresh coat of paint, a new color on your bedroom walls will instantly brighten the space and can even make it look bigger than it originally was. You don’t have to simply paint a wall in the same block color. If you’re feeling really adventurous, you can paint a mural on your wall of whatever you want. This will not only breathe new life into your bedroom but customize it completely to your tastes with a mural of things you love. 

Switch Up the Color Scheme

If you’re getting bored of looking at the same old room or you’re finding that you’ve grown out of the color scheme that you once chose, you can easily change it to give your room a whole new feel. For a classy look, try replacing your existing room with modern and elegant colors such as duck egg paired with a classy and bold tan. It can be difficult to picture what colors would look good paired together or whether your existing décor will stand or need to be placed, so try creating mood boards on websites like Pinterest to get a clearer idea of what you want before you commit. 

Try Minimalism

Minimalism is a craze that not only applies to lifestyle but also applies to a style of designing. Making use of white walls, muted colors or earthy tones, minimalism wants to play down a design and make it look elegant, classic and raw rather than turning your head with bright, bold colors. A classic minimalist look is plain white walls, little decoration or clutter, string lights and a tapestry hanging on the wall. Plants are also immensely popular in the minimalism movement, as they add an airy and elegant look to a room, so get planting and put them wherever you can! Whilst this look isn’t for everyone as it can seem quite empty or boring to some, it is very easy to achieve, so why not try minimalism?

Comfort is Important Too

Whilst the idea of a makeover makes people think simply of what they can see, it is important that your makeover takes comfort into account too, as people often spend a long time in their bedrooms, so it’s important to be comfortable! If you have an old wooden chair at your desk, this is the perfect opportunity to throw it out and get more comfortable with a simple velvet, comfy chair decorated with a throw. As your bedroom is where you sleep, it’s important that your makeover includes your mattress. Throw out your old uncomfortable mattress and replace it with a beautiful memory foam mattress, designed to adapt to your curves and figure for ultimate sleep quality. If you’re unsure where to find these, check out this one from Zoma and never have a restless night again!

Sometimes a bedroom makeover is just what you need to lift your spirits and bring new excitement and new beginnings into your life. It doesn’t have to be a difficult full-scale project, try some of these four easy bedroom makeover tips you’ll love and, most of all, make sure you have fun!
