Tell us a bit about your background? I’m a Creative Director at a global PR and integrated communications agency. I get to work across a broad range of industries; from sports to fashion, tech to travel. It’s always different, and there’s always a new challenge, which I love. I also lead the content team for TEDxBrixton.claire (1)What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? Eating and drinking! Without a doubt. We’re spoilt for choice here – so many amazing places. There are too many to list all my recommendations, but some of my favourites are Bukowski, Made of Dough, Mama Lan, and Chicken Liquor. Outside of The Village and Pop Brixton, I also like ThreeEightFour and Effra Social (they do a good pub quiz on a Tuesday).What’s your interpretation of this year’s theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? For me it’s about constant evolution. About retaining beauty, despite an always changing form.What book(s) are you currently reading? What’s it about? Thrive by Arianna Huffington. She wrote the book after collapsing from exhaustion and severely injuring herself. It caused her to dramatically rethink her life, revaluating the choices she was making. Her book is neat summary of this reflection.What’s your favourite TED talk? I love a lot of the iconic talks such as Do Schools Kill Creativity? by Sir Ken Robinson and How I held my breath for 17 minutes by David Blaine. One of my personal favourites is How Sampling Transformed Music by Mark Ronson.

Most of us have at least some type of look or style we'd like for our front porch: country, Victorian, Southern, contemporary, southwestern, Tuscan, eclectic or even a sports theme. Or perhaps you want a seasonal look depending on the time of year - spring or fall decorating, for example. Some prefer, especially those along the coast, a nautical look. Others, like in the southwest, might prefer a western theme. This will help determine the items you want to display on your porch. Look at garage sales, flea markets, your dollar store, or a thrift shop to find items like pictures for your wall, furniture, tables or other charming knick knacks to carry out your theme. Chances are you have some items in your home already that you can re-purpose for your porch.

To avoid having to deal with too much traffic with not enough room, try making sure you can have four to six feet of aisle space. If you place the sink and refrigerator on one wall, and then the range opposite it on the other side, this will allow the room to be evenly spaced out and not look over crowded. You could even add an island or peninsula off the end of one counter which will aid in allowing a place for quick eat in meals.
If you would like to incorporate the new stainless steel appliances into your galley kitchen ideas, some home decorating ideas you can use for a beautiful modern look can be wine cubbies above the window, dark green granite counter tops, and oak floors all work together to create a cozy atmosphere. Other kitchen remodel options for saving space in a galley kitchen are to install sliding bottom cupboards. You can also incorporate a turnstile shelving unit into a deep corner cupboard space. This will allow you to save a ton of space while it is tucked away.

Candles are actually the traditional decorations for fireplace mantels. Back then, they didn't have electric lights and had to use candles for light in the evening. It was the perfect place to situate candles, which can be taken to the room at bedtime.
