That’s what inspired the style of the final piece; you have to really look up close at The Chronicles of Brixton to see what it’s made up of. The question ‘what one thing would you save from a fire?‘ is quite a personal one. The answer can say a lot about a person, and often tell you things about them that you wouldn’t be able to guess. It’s about showing that no matter how we look at a glance, there’s more under the surface. We’re all different, but ultimately the same in the sense that we’re all human with our own stories.
I think there’s so much going on in Brixton that it would be impossible to sum that all up in one image. For me, The Chronicles of Brixton represents Brixton to me. It’s a real mixture of things; – there’s everything from civil rights activists, through to musical instruments and tools for making, all layered up and coming together to make one slightly noisy, but cohesive image. The things in the image are so different but sit alongside each other to create something beautiful which I think is something that drew me to Brixton in the first place.Why Brixton, rather than any other area?

So when you are planning your next kitchen makeover, be sure to include new cabinet hardware on the list. New cabinet handles and knobs can serve several different purposes. For a complete kitchen makeover, they provide the great finishing touch the room needs to tie the whole look together and let the room look and feel "done." But installing new kitchen cabinet hardware is one of those kitchen ideas that is really effective and versatile, because you do not even need to install all new cabinets to take advantage of its benefits. In fact, you do not even have to paint or stain your old cabinets again to get a new look with new hardware.
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.

However, not all families and houses have this type of bathroom since it's not the standard type that every family must have. On the other hand, despite being small in terms of space, you can easily make this small bathroom attractive and interesting through putting up unique designs, materials, and decor. So how can you decorate your half bath to make it comfortable and functional at the same time?
*Maximize the space

Though it is the smallest, there are numerous ways to make it look bigger. One of these is choosing the right accessories, perhaps a pedestal sink that will add floor space, or open shelves that will help maximize your storage space, or a huge mirror that will double the visual space in your bathroom. It also helps to remove unnecessary items especially those that are space consuming.
This is the most basic and most important thing to remember. Regardless of the type and size of your bathroom, always keep it clean. Well, your house as a whole must be clean as well. Always.

Hardscaping doesn't stop there, however many hardscape design professionals will also readily draw up plans for a patio, a barbeque pit, a deck, walkways, decorative retaining walls, exotic fences and gains, and even artistic sculptures as well! The applications of hardscape design are as varied and beautiful as any live garden -- just more permanent. But don't think that hard means large -- hardscapers will just as readily put together small details in an otherwise 'soft' environment. For example, having a Japanese-style concrete lantern or a copper Foo dog set up to grace your backyard is right up a hardscapers alley.
Once that decision is reached, it's time to design. Most people find that it's aesthetically pleasing to use the hardscape design elements to contrast either the building itself or the softscaped areas. As most modern houses are rigid, straight lines with somewhat visually harsh elements, hardscaping design professionals often suggest gentle, curved lines and rounded corners to contrast the house itself. In a natural, highly landscaped environment, however -- especially one that conceals the house from view -- it may be more effective to utilize straight lines and right angles to separate the hardscaping from the natural world around it.
