1. Tell us a bit about your background? I’m the partnerships manager, which means I look after our relationships with local businesses and sponsors.2. What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? I’ve lived her for a while now and this answer changes weekly, but at the moment I love hot yoga classes at Fierce Grace, after which I stagger down the road to Lucy’ Juices for a pick me up. As I expect most people who live here say, Brixton Market is a favourite spot – Fish Wings and Tings is an institution and Dave from Market Row wines will always find you a great bottle. Oh, and Three Eight Four on Coldharbour Lane does the best cocktails I can find.3. What’s your interpretation of this years’ theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? I’ve been working with a lot of local businesses this year and the theme has been very meaningful for a lot of people, as it represents the mash-up of old and new that Brixton is currently experiencing.4. What book(s) are you currently reading? What’s it about? A few! Currently switching, depending on my mood, between Tim Jackson’s Prosperity without Growth (he has a great TED talk by the way) and Michael Ondaatje’s The English Patient, which is a favourite of my dad’s, so he’s chuffed I am finally reading it.5. What’s your favourite TED talk? An all time great and one that I always pass on to others is Jackson Katz – Violence Against Women: It’s a Men’s Issue. Heavy title I know, but just a genius argument and one that never fails to spark debate.
We have a committed facilities team who are responsible for the management of services and processes that support all of TEDxBrixton’s departments. It’s a wide field with a diverse range of responsibilities which can only be fulfilled by a team who are reliable, highly organised, efficient and astute in the planning and daily operations of running an organisation. Meet Rima, Lauren and Piotr.
1. Tell us a bit about your background? My role within the team is Project Coordinator. I help all the teams where necessary on a variety of tasks and have been working on sourcing the merchandise for the event.2. What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? I love going to Brixton Market at the weekend: having a browse and trying all the different food there, picking up fresh bread from the Sunday Farmer’s market and have particularly enjoyed Pop Brixton this summer, especially the savoury crepes from L’Amuse Bouche!3. What’s your interpretation of this years’ theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? For me, kaleidoscope means something that is rapidly changing, something vibrant and colourful which is full of energy and continuously creating something beautiful that comes together perfectly.4. What book(s) are you currently reading? I am currently reading I Am Pilgrim, a fantastic thriller entwining the lives of a former intelligence officer and an international terrorist – I can’t put it down and would highly recommend!5. What’s your favourite TED talk? There are so many amazing TED talks that I have enjoyed, but one that stands out to me is Susan Cain’s The Power of Introverts because it really examined the social emphasis on being bold, assertive and outgoing and discusses how we should change our perspective and understand the value of introverts. In our society, I think there is bias thinking that the ideal students and employees are extroverts as opposed to introverts, and I think it is important to shed light on the positive differences between the two and strive for more of a cultural balance between the two.

Installing hardwood floors in a basement can be done two ways
Tiles make excellent flooring for basements, whether they are ceramic, slate or marble. If you go for ceramic tiles you will be delighted with the choice of designs and colors available to you, and the other forms of tiles will certainly enhance any room.

Of course you have to consider if your basement is capable of holding a basement bar. Ask yourself if your plumbing is fine and the electrical wires are all up to code. If not, then no basement bar idea can be successfully realized.

Will you be working on this project alone or will you need to hire someone for help?
Tackling a home project can be fun, but it can also be expensive. You should create a budget for your project and make sure it will be enough to cover your renovations. You can do the project in increments, making it more affordable over time. Starting a project and being halted by lack of funds is frustrating and aggravating. Be cost conscious! For example, putting in windows is a way to create natural lighting with daylight, which is a small but free step!

There is no porch any more grand and welcoming than the wrap around farmhouse porch. This porch is a true American favorite. The expansive space on the porch makes it easy to entertain guests, relax after a long day or just hang out with the children or grandchildren. These porches are normally simple in design and feature standard porch furniture, wicker style furniture, rockers, and simple tables.

While women usually redesign rooms from top to bottom, men should redesign rooms from bottom to top. Begin by selecting a rug to use as a focal point. Comfort is important in bachelor pads, so choose something soft that you will enjoy stepping on. You can go with any color you like but keep your lifestyle in mind. Solid colored rugs are ideal for masculine rooms and white rooms make a great statement against the typical stainless steel or black furniture. However, if you have pets or don't like to vacuum, you should probably choose a beautiful rug in a dark color to hide dirt.
