According to over 600 attendees, TEDxBrixton 2015 certainly lived up to its expectations. Queues formed outside the Brixton Recreation Centre before doors even opened and at 1pm our founder Stephanie Busari welcomed the audience by delivering a compelling speech.
he night ended with some amazing personal favourites of our team including Kate Faragher’s speech on intuitive collaboration and Roi Cohen’s almost sci-fi presentation on brain stimulation. Cloudia Vardon challenged our audience with her experience on coping with synaesthesia and Lata Govada educated us all on crystals beginning with her opening line “crystals, the fascination of mankind!”Ideas from Europe Competition

You also need to think about the height of bedside table that will suit you and your requirements best
Most people prefer the height of the table to be level with the top of the mattress for practical reasons. This gives an even line to the bed, but is this the look you are trying to achieve? Framing Low beds, platform beds or futons with higher bedside tables provides depth and adds another dimension to the room. Try opting for a slightly more unusual shape such as a hand-drum type shape side table to add another aspect and further structure to your room. Perhaps you prefer your nightstand to be a little lower than the mattress? Platform beds often feature integrated bedside tables for a modern, sleek look that gives width to the bed and focuses the eye.

Attractive cabinets and countertops can dramatically improve the appearance of your home and increase the resale value if they are carefully chosen. First, you must decide on whether you prefer a traditional or contemporary look. If you do not wish to spend a lot of money, the traditional style of cabinets will cost you less. If you prefer a style of decor that is very modern, you will be able to find many attractive cabinets in a contemporary style. Think carefully about the various kinds of cabinets before you make your decision. The following suggestions will help you to make the right choice. If your room is very narrow, you will be better off choosing a small cabinet. Countertops that have a double sink are ideal for use in the kitchen. If you are short of storage space, be sure that the countertop you choose features a lot of drawers and shelves where you can store items out of the way.

When installing fixtures
Giving the space volume and new perspectives, so the role of indoor lighting is to "dress up" the setting, to bring out certain details, to attract attention or create a certain type of atmosphere. General lighting is designed to evenly distribute light in a room and/or concentrate light to different points of interest. There are many choices if lighting designs but because of minimal ceiling heights in basements the main fixture used is the Hi-hat or canister light. This hi-hat is installed inside the ceiling cavity and is only noticeable from it's outward facing finish. As a main luminescent source, these must be chosen in order to satisfy the requirements of the role of the room. The basement is usually low on natural brightness. Unless you plan on spending a lot to get regular sized windows installed the lighting choices and designs should be deployed to make up for the lack of natural brightness.

If you plan on using the room a lot, then pick materials that are very easy to clean. Be practical, do not choose beauty over functionality. Durable materials are a must so you will not have to repair anything right away. A big storage area could be very useful if you plan on using your bar a lot. At least you won't have to keep lugging heavy bottles every now and then.
