Self-confessed ‘crush-addict’ Isabelle O’Carroll had our audience in fits of laughter discussing her theory on crushes. “Some people say that their crushes are so strong it prevents them from eating or even sleeping! But crushes can be such a powerful motivator making you change your life or a strong comforter in times of depression.”Other highlights during our third quarter included Alex Lambert’s gripping topic on creativity, ideas and technology, Inua Ellams’ insightful talk on mental health issues in men and Sabah Choudrey’s moving story on being a transgendered Muslim.

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.

Your decorating will no better than the plans you make and the action you engage
Begin taking concrete steps to actualize this vision by using a single large painting or mirror. Don't hang the picture to high, perhaps just lean it against the wall. Another good plan is to use two or more coordinating pieces as a grouping.

One of the popular bike storage ideas is to use the ceiling mounted pulleys. In a small apartment or a cramped dorm room where storing your bike is next to impossible, these pulleys come in quite handy. Hooked to the ceiling, the pulleys are used to get your bike up and out of the way for proper storage.

Think about having lights fixed to the wall or suspended lamps so you don't have to limit yourself to selecting a specific height for your bedside table. Personally, I like to find the perfect bedside tables to add interest and function as a prominent feature within the room. I will then choose lamps or lighting fixtures that work well with my side tables and the room in general. Tall nightstands produce a striking effect and really bring a simpler, understated bed to life. Some designs of tall, free standing floor lamps have integrated tables. The prominent feature is the lamp itself, but they also provide a functional, usually circular, table for your books, drinks and the like. Try matching two of these lamp table hybrids with a bed that has a high headboard, that extends beyond the top of the lampshade; this will produce a dramatic effect in your bedroom.
Check back for Part II of Modern Ideas For Bedside Tables very soon.

Attractive cabinets and countertops can dramatically improve the appearance of your home and increase the resale value if they are carefully chosen. First, you must decide on whether you prefer a traditional or contemporary look. If you do not wish to spend a lot of money, the traditional style of cabinets will cost you less. If you prefer a style of decor that is very modern, you will be able to find many attractive cabinets in a contemporary style. Think carefully about the various kinds of cabinets before you make your decision. The following suggestions will help you to make the right choice. If your room is very narrow, you will be better off choosing a small cabinet. Countertops that have a double sink are ideal for use in the kitchen. If you are short of storage space, be sure that the countertop you choose features a lot of drawers and shelves where you can store items out of the way.
If you want to create a consistent look in your home, you can get dual purpose cabinets for your cooking area as well as the bathrooms. When you purchase a cabinet for use in your kitchen, make certain it will have enough space to hold all the cleaners and kitchen items that you want to hide away. If your house has a traditional look featuring a lot of antiques, you can find antique cabinets and countertops in a matching style. You may be able to find a good price on antique furniture by purchasing items from a well-known dealer when the items go on sale.
