The Chronicles of Brixton has given me a real thirst to hear more stories and I’m fascinated to find out what, if anything, would be different if I were to carry out the same project in other places. And at other times too. Watch this space!
What’s your favourite story or image that you’ve been sent so far?
1. Tell us a bit about your background? My role within the team is Project Coordinator. I help all the teams where necessary on a variety of tasks and have been working on sourcing the merchandise for the event.2. What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? I love going to Brixton Market at the weekend: having a browse and trying all the different food there, picking up fresh bread from the Sunday Farmer’s market and have particularly enjoyed Pop Brixton this summer, especially the savoury crepes from L’Amuse Bouche!3. What’s your interpretation of this years’ theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? For me, kaleidoscope means something that is rapidly changing, something vibrant and colourful which is full of energy and continuously creating something beautiful that comes together perfectly.4. What book(s) are you currently reading? I am currently reading I Am Pilgrim, a fantastic thriller entwining the lives of a former intelligence officer and an international terrorist – I can’t put it down and would highly recommend!5. What’s your favourite TED talk? There are so many amazing TED talks that I have enjoyed, but one that stands out to me is Susan Cain’s The Power of Introverts because it really examined the social emphasis on being bold, assertive and outgoing and discusses how we should change our perspective and understand the value of introverts. In our society, I think there is bias thinking that the ideal students and employees are extroverts as opposed to introverts, and I think it is important to shed light on the positive differences between the two and strive for more of a cultural balance between the two.

With a growing desire for more ethical fashion initiatives, fashion enterprise HustleBucks, co-founded by Samuel Ade Alebioshu, is picking up huge recognition for marrying social good with innovative clothing. “Our ‘hustle’ began in 2009 with a team of young people keen on making a difference through clothing by using it as medium to express ourselves and the issues we felt were relevant,” says Samuel.

While floor tile ideas are usually remembered for decoration purposes, they are also useful in tasks which aim at protecting the floors covering every part of the house or building for that matter. The installation of these items must be done by professionals to avoid possibilities of breakage that can mean wasted money and time on your part. Moreover, the quality of the tiles also matters. High-end ones are sure to serve their purpose for a long time.
Floor tile ideas for the kitchen would be the same with those for the bathroom. Kitchen tiles must be easy to clean and slip-free. Stains due to food preparation and cleaning of cooking wares abound in the kitchen. Ceramic tiles are fit for such an atmosphere. With a mop sweep, all the stains could be gone without posing much harm to the kitchen users.

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.

Hardscape design is exactly what it sounds like
Landscaping makes most Americans think of cut grass, immaculate flowerbeds, and trimmed bushes arranged under trees whose leaves are meticulously raked up and disposed of once a week all autumn long. But as hardscaping becomes more popular countrywide (not only because it's new and different, but because it's easier to maintain as well) the idea of what it means to have your house 'scaped' is changing rapidly.
