“Instablock” – The Perfect Present by Moshik Galamin!

The launch of the new flagshop of “Instablock” by the famous home-styling designer Moshik Galamin, was a cool and fashionable event, full of great ideas offering unique and personalized items for home and business design!

We are all familiar with Moshik Galamin as the host of the successful “Coming to Design for You” TV program, which is the Israeli equivalent of the successful American program named “Extreme Makeover,” where he and his team of experts come to apartments of Israeli families renovating and decorating their apartments and furniture with some original design ideas.

What is “Instablock”?

“Instablock” is a business initiative launched by Moshik Galamin with his sister Michal, which, in addition to the new flagshop near Dizengoff Center Tel-Aviv, now has 9 branches in the form of designed middle stands located in leading shopping malls throughout Israel, all of which offer personalized and uniquely designed wooden items out of an ecological perception of using existing and redesigned materials.

What is so special about the design idea of “Instablock”?

In the digital era where social networks have replaced traditional photo albums, the connection between the virtual world and the real world has become increasingly significant and sentimental, and this what this design project is based on. The “Instablock” products were created due to Moshik’s passion for design and aesthetics, and the idea is based on the possibility of printing personal photos on wooden blocks and other special materials. The pictures are printed by printers using a unique technique and the printed blocks are being ready in just a few short minutes!

And what do we get?

The resulting product is a personal and uniquely designed item, which can be given as a gift to any home or special event. The blocks can be integrated into the design of the whole house – as individual pictures scattered around the house or the office, or as aesthetically designed wall coverings.

The designed items add unique personal touches to all the spaces of the house or the office, providing exciting reminders of the happy moments and magical places that are always fun to remember.

And where can we get “Instablock”?

The “Instablock” products are sold through the chain’s branches – at the designed middle stands in the selected malls, at the new flagshop near Dizengoff Center Tel Aviv, and via website for the wide local and international clientele:

In conclusion..

The “Instablock” pictures designed in a variety of forms are the perfect gift for those we love! Also they can be used in the design of our houses adding personal content to any space and “spreading” pleasant wooden warmth that suits any design style.

Highly recommended to try it at home 😉 !!

And what are the new trends offered by the brand for 2018?

One of the decor styles that will be more and more popular next year is the use of golden accessories. The golden trend has been with us for some time now, but the innovation this year is that it will be “upgraded” through the ethnic connotation by the use of blackened gold with decorative ornaments.

Another line of products that will be highlighted in 2018 is rustic wood furniture – tables, comodes, consoles and more. Today there is a desire to bring home a sense of warmth, even to those that are designed in a modern style, and therefore the choice of authentic wooden furniture is more and more popular.

“Jonah Events” – The HOT New Venue with a Breathtaking View!

 A few days ago, I had the honor of being present at the exclusive and luxurious launch of “Jonah Events” – the brand new hot venue for unforgettable quality events with a breathtaking seaview!!

The spectacular new event complex at the “West Lagoon Resort” on the beach in Netanya, with an investment of 41 million NIS (!!), covers an area of ​​3,500 square meters and is spread over two separate areas: “Jonah” and “Jonah Club”, occupying two of the hotel levels.

The two compounds offer a different and varied experience:

“Jonah Club” – is a compound on the 15th hotel level, with the capacity of up to 300 guests. It has been designed in the style of Miami Beach houses: large spaces surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows that provide full panoramic views, with a spectacular semi-covered large terrace with a breathtaking seaview.

The marriage ceremony is designed to take place on a beautiful terrace overlooking the sea.

“Jonah” – a complex with the capacity of up to 520 guests, with flexible seating arrangements for the choice of the audience, built in Colonialist design with the use of concrete, steel, wood and vegetation. A combination of round and rectangular wooden tables, standard height tables and a half-bar height, alternative furniture, such as – sofas, coffee corners and bar tables that can be integrated in the reception or in the dance floor areas, provide the magnificent complex with a design flexibility, dynamism and a high level of versatility, so that it can accommodate any desires and needs of its customers.

And who is behind this exclusive business initiative?

“Ta’am VeTseva” company and “Aries” catering, owned by Motti Ben Aharon and Amit Kaufman, are the people behind the beautiful “Jona Events” project, which offers a new and creative concept to the celebrators, with a total investment of 41 million NIS. Since the establishment of “Ta’am VeTseva” in 1996 and up until now, it has been diligent to innovate and bring the next “hot” thing to the events industry, hence, the innovated concept of “Jonah Events”.

And what new and unforgettable concept awaits us at “Jonah Events”?

After many years of no changes whatsoever in the “events” realm, for the first time, during the planning stage of the new hotel, two special floors have been allocated for the events, and planning connections have been created from their spectacular hosting & celebration areas – to the landscape, the various facilities of the hotel and the separate entrances. As a result, the world of “Premium Events” has been “integrated” into a new and luxurious hotel that is actually a beach resort, and the combination of both offers an events and hospitality innovation: the marrying couple can benefit from the “Rolling Event” experience that – begins in the events complex with the wedding ceremony celebrations, the late beach “After Party” to follow, continues with the family and friends’ staying the night at the hotel, and finishes with the festive breakfast and Turkish Bath the next morning.

And what’s on the menu?

“Ta’am VeTseva” gave the team of “Jonah”‘s chefs unlimited creative freedom and an instruction to think “outside the box” in order to create a new, colorful and sensual culinary language that will make every event special and “one of a kind”. The state-of-the-art frontal kitchen will naturally connect with the luxuriously designed seaview environment, and will serve personal dishes with a unique interpretation of the latest culinary trends and flavors from around the world.

In conclusion…

The whole festive opening launch experience of “Jona Events” was extraordinarily luxurious, enriched with a spectacular design and a fine dining, and everything was planned and very well thought out – up to the last detail! It was truly an amazing and unforgettable evening!

… and the view…. OMG the View…!!

As promised, it “took” my breath away, for a short moment … I suddenly started having a strong desire to have my own wedding ceremony… Once again ;-)!!

“Rehovot West 431” – “Avisror” Luxurious Residential is Here!

This week I have joined a professional tour of the prestigious residential towers project in west Rehovot, Israel, from “Avisror Moshe and Sons” construction company.
“West Rehovot 431” – is the name of the project, and it includes 12 luxury 20-storeys-high towers with 960 housing units, including 4-5 room apartments, 6-7 room duplexes and luxurious penthouses with very high building standards. These days, the company’s management has announced the beginning of the marketing phaze of the 8th building – out of the 12 buildings overall.

The complex, that has been designed by the architect Israel Rozio, is formed out of two clusters of residential towers, each one with six buildings, overlooking an open public area of ​​12 dunams with a large and spacious park for the benefit of the residents and the surrounding area.

This luxury project includes apartments of various sizes with rich specifications and high building standards (apartments types attached below), a spacious two-storeys-high lobby, a bicycles and carts room, a tenants room and an underground car parking. The compound is full of green lawns and paths and is located in the western part of Rehovot, in a countrified atmosphere. The towers complex is adjacent to the leading educational and cultural institutions of the city and is situated in a convenient accessibility to the 4th and 431th highway roads.

A little bit about the company..

“Avisror Moshe & Sons” is an entrepreneurial construction company, and one of the oldest and most stable construction companies in Israel, operating both in the residential and commercial sectors. The privately owned company was established in 1978 by Moshe Avisror, who is currently the President and the CEO of the company with his sons operating in managing positions. As a housing company, it is classified in an unrestricted classification (rating C), in addition to being a registered contractor for the execution of government works, infrastructure and development projects.

The company is constantly growing and deployed nationwide with dozens of projects in Beer Sheva, Rehovot, Petach Tikvah, Bat Yam, Modi’in, Rosh Ha’ayin, Yavne and Ashkelon regions. Soon it will expand its activities to other cities in the central region. In addition to its extensive activity throughout the country, the company offers projects of “price for occupant” in Gedera, Rishon LeZion and Beer Sheva.

Let’s explore the model apartment which is the magnificent penthouse with the open view overlooking the green surroundings:

The design style chosen in the model apartment is modern – eclectic, connecting the various materials and elements with warm and pleasant color schemes. The furniture, lighting fixtures and accessories provide the apartment’s total design with a variety of patterns, warm strokes of colors and delicate texturing.

In the hosting areas as well as in the bedrooms, the landscape “enters” the apartment, and is an active designing element in each space.

And what population will we meet in the project?

The high-quality project attracts a high socio-economic population, including high-tech-working in the “Science Park” individuals  and professionals from Rehovot and its surroundings, who are drawn to the high standard of construction, the company’s seniority, stability and luxurious apartments at fair prices. This project is the proof that an evacuation-construction initiative has transformed this area and has made it progress and flourish, in response to the growing demand for quality housing in the strategic location.

The professional tour throughout this project was indeed very interesting, and one can definitely see that Rehovot is “on the map” .. big time!
