Self-confessed ‘crush-addict’ Isabelle O’Carroll had our audience in fits of laughter discussing her theory on crushes. “Some people say that their crushes are so strong it prevents them from eating or even sleeping! But crushes can be such a powerful motivator making you change your life or a strong comforter in times of depression.”Other highlights during our third quarter included Alex Lambert’s gripping topic on creativity, ideas and technology, Inua Ellams’ insightful talk on mental health issues in men and Sabah Choudrey’s moving story on being a transgendered Muslim.
We chose the theme because we believe this embodies what Brixton really is. We don’t believe in melting pots, we believe in salad bowls, mosaics and kaleidoscopes – things that allow individual elements to be part of a whole.

One of the most important things you need to consider is lighting. Lighting plays an important role when it comes to decorating a space. Here are some tips on illuminating the basement that will help you decorate and transform this room into an attractive and beautiful space. When it comes to lighting design in the basement, the first thing to consider is natural sunlight. There is no substitute for natural brightness, so using the windows in the basement is important. As mentioned before if you have room in your budget the add a couple real sized windows the natural illumination will give you that open airy feeling you have from the rooms upstairs. If natural light sources are limited or not enough, then you should consider adding additional fixtures especially in the darker corners of your basement.
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.

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!
