Live tweets and updates being shared on the day included quotes from some of our most inspiring speakers -like Robyn Parker, Helen Wright and Hugh Lewis, Pete Bearder and Charlotte Knowles:We were treated to incredible performances from Lil Trubz, Brandon Bennet and The Voice UK finalist Brixton’s very own Lara Lee “TEDxBrixton to me is about people coming together sharing ideas and it’s about the energy of the area. Brixton has always had a massive energy in terms of creativity and the point of having an event like this is to improve as a community,” explained Lara.
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.

Don't have enough room for a pantry? If possible, when you are designing your kitchen, borrow the space from an adjoining mudroom or laundry room, to enlarge your kitchen space.

Bookstores also usually feature a wide variety of design and decorating magazines that you can look through for inspiration.
If you truly want to get a feel for the design trends and styles of earlier decades, however, you should pay a visit to the library. Unlike bookstores, which specialize in recently published materials, the library will have books full of makeover ideas that date back decades or even centuries (if you have a very extensive library)! What better way to find authentic makeover pictures from the decades you love the most than to see them in the publications that were published during those decades?
