Binki Taylor was the first of our 17 speakers to take to the stage and left the crowd in standing ovation with a moving story on her childhood as a black girl fostered by an all-white family. “I know exactly what it’s like to have a voice that isn’t understood. You feel like you don’t belong. Under the skin is where I found my voice. I had to tackle how to belong from the bottom.”Rebecca Trevalyan, Sam Hall and Steadman Scott also delivered their pieces on what Brixton means to them and thoughts on improving local communities. “What does Afewee mean? It’s for the community, it’s for us. Our mission is to put belief, passion, hard-work and discipline together,” Steadman explained.
Some incredible speakers

When you are planning a home remodeling project for the kitchen, do not overlook your kitchen hardware as an important component of your new kitchen design. A kitchen renovation is not complete until all of the little details are taken care of, and your cabinet hardware is one of those little details that should not be overlooked because it can make or break the look of your kitchen! When your cabinet hardware is in good shape and works well, then you likely don't think about it much, but when that hardware gets shabby or starts to come loose from the cupboard doors and drawers, then you notice there's a problem, because it is throwing both the look and the functionality of your kitchen off.
When you set out to choose your new hardware, take a moment to think about what you want it to accomplish. Obviously, you want it to look good and work well, so keep that in mind while you shop. Look for pieces that are well made and easy to clean. Ease of cleaning is definitely important for kitchen hardware, because it is going to be exposed to food spills and liquid spills and grubby hands. It is important that the pieces be well made, because they will see a lot of use in their lifetimes and you want them to hold up. And, of course, you want to choose something that fits in well with the decor of your kitchen. A warm, traditionally decorated kitchen would pair well with oil rubbed bronze knobs and pulls, and a contemporary and modern styled kitchen pairs well with stainless steel and other sleek metal hardware. Choose the pieces that suit you and your lifestyle best and you'll love what a difference your new hardware makes on your cabinets and your kitchen as a whole.

Most wall headboards act as the main focal point in a bedroom. Some give a unique look to your bed while others are used to provide functionality. For example a bookcase wall headboard would be a perfect choice for a small bedroom eliminating the need for a nightstand and giving you space for a reading lamp, books, glasses and a clock. Upholstered headboards are a great choice for comfort and luxury while a beautiful wrought iron headboard is a perfect choice for a Mediterranean or country style bedroom.
You can also frame designer fabrics and wallpaper to make an eye-catching and unique headboard that you could also coordinate with any bedroom color scheme and decor.

*Significance of the wall space
However, not all families and houses have this type of bathroom since it's not the standard type that every family must have. On the other hand, despite being small in terms of space, you can easily make this small bathroom attractive and interesting through putting up unique designs, materials, and decor. So how can you decorate your half bath to make it comfortable and functional at the same time?

It is easier to experiment with various colors because of its size but make sure that the colors will complement your accessories and decorations. However, the best color choice would still be something that will make your half bathroom space look bigger.

Once that decision is reached, it's time to design. Most people find that it's aesthetically pleasing to use the hardscape design elements to contrast either the building itself or the softscaped areas. As most modern houses are rigid, straight lines with somewhat visually harsh elements, hardscaping design professionals often suggest gentle, curved lines and rounded corners to contrast the house itself. In a natural, highly landscaped environment, however -- especially one that conceals the house from view -- it may be more effective to utilize straight lines and right angles to separate the hardscaping from the natural world around it.
If you begin with the landscaping, the hardscaping itself -- which can be fairly intensive- labor and equipment wise -- can damage the plants and soft terrain. For this reason, starting with the hardscaping is usually wiser.

The key with grey is to choose use it as you would for any other type of neutral colour, such as magnolia or cream. There is no need to be fearful of it, as it is neutral and will site well in any room of the house. Not only that, it is a very practical colour and if you follow the latest trends you will notice it is the 'in' colour to go with.

You can have it catered, you can cook or our family favorite for our barbeque theme is hamburgers, hot dogs and heroes. Add some salads, fruit platters and a graduation themed dessert and you have an easy, inexpensive menu. We set up a "stadium" food booth near the grill. My husband and his buddies were grilling to order, with the condiments and rolls set out at the booth. You make a poster and name your area. For example, at our party for our youngest who was going to DePaul University in Chicago.. we set up the "DePaul Dug Out" and decorated the table with the school colors. For our son, who was headed to Rutgers University, we had a "Knight Stand" as their school mascot is the Scarlet Knight. For another of our parties, I bought cases of bottled water, took off the store label and made my own personalized labels celebrating the graduates!
