If you could choose one image to represent Brixton, what would it be?
My favourite submission has to be the collage of Barbara Jordan, the American civil rights activist that makes up the centre of The Chronicles of Brixton. Visually it’s a really powerful image, and the things it’s introduced me to have been totally unexpected. For starters, I didn’t even know who Barbara Jordan was before so it’s opened me up to a whole new piece of history about an incredible woman who’s massively shaped the world we live in.

When installing fixtures
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.

2. Use waterproofing paint. You can roll this onto the floor and onto the ceiling (depending on the paint and ceiling type) with a paint roller.
Determining the functions of the room will help you to create design elements for your basement finishing ideas. For example, if you will be using the space for a movie theater, you will need to look into wiring and speakers as well as lighting for the room.

This style of porch is easy to spot because of their grand towering columns. They are a well beloved porch dating back to the early days of America and have an English flair. You will see them on two story homes and are common on southern style plantation homes. The common decor on these styles of porches is plush and comfortable outdoor seating and simple yet elegant decor.
If you love romantic and ornamental arts and trim or you are mesmerized by the Renaissance Era, I think a Queen Anne/Victorian style porch will be great for you.

Most of these designs will include the use or wrought iron furniture, fencing or porch rails. You will also notice designs, curves and carved formations on the porch posts or railings and ornamental décor is the standard for this porch. Accent pillows line with ruffles, lace and floral designs are common as well as plenty of the color red.
