2. What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? I spend pretty much every day in Brixton and still love just walking around and soaking up the atmosphere, mainly walking through Market Row, Granville Arcade and Electric Avenue.3. What’s your interpretation of this year’s theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? My interpretation is very much a visual one. Kaleidoscopes are beautiful ever-changing patterns that develop and grow without knowing what you are going to see next. I think that hugely describes Brixton. It is such a diverse place that is constantly changing. Every day I see new developments and the way things change but still fit together and work alongside each other.4. What book(s) are you currently reading? What’s it about? I’m reading a few! One is “Lean in” by Sheryl Sandberg which is a hugely motivational read that I would recommend to anyone. I’m also working my way through the new Gizzi Erskine “Healthy Eating” cookbook which is brilliant. I’ve just finished Lena Dunham’s “Not That Kind of Girl” which had me in stitches throughout and gave a whole new perspective on being a woman in her twenties!5. What’s your favourite TED talk? That opinion changes daily, I have the app so constantly have a look as to what kind of talk I’d like to listen to. One that really sticks out is from this year’s TED in Vancouver by David Eagleman which we screened at the Impact Hub in Brixton. It really opens your eyes to what science can do6. What’s your biggest highlight from last year’s TEDxBrixton event? I put forward Simon Parkes as someone to approach as a speaker for 2014 and seeing him on stage after weeks of developing his talk and being such a huge fan of his story and book was a very special moment, one I will remember for a very long time.TEDXBRIXTON TEAMS: a spotlight with our set designers

There are a lot of reasons why you would want to finish your basement, and finished basement ideas abound on the Internet. Take a look at that dreary old space under your house, and envision what it could look like if you added space for family activities and friends. In addition, you'll make your biggest investment, your home, worth just that much more.
As children grow up, they start wanting to spend more and more time with their friends, and family togetherness gets pushed aside. When you create your new living space in your basement, make sure you do it with gatherings in mind. Provide the perfect space, and you'll find your kids, as well as their friends, spending the majority of their time hanging out there. You'll get to know all the kids so well that they'll be happy to have you spend time watching movies or playing cards with them, and you'll develop a new kind of family together time. Besides that, you'll never have to worry about where your kids are and what they're doing.

Make sure you have a fair idea about the size of the gazebo you are going to build. Don't try to fit a huge gazebo into a small piece of land. This will end up making you backyard look crowded and will actually decrease the beauty of the landscape. If availability of land is not a problem, then you should base your decision of size, on the purpose of the gazebo. If you are thinking of holding parties inside the gazebo, it is better to allow as much space as possible. On the other hand, if your gazebo is going to be more private then you may be happier with a smaller size. Make sure you gazebo plans have accurate measurements of all dimensions of the gazebo.
All you need are some good gazebo plans and you can build your very own gazebo just the way you like it. This will also be much cheaper compared to buying a gazebo and you can also add any kind of furniture or accessories you want into the gazebo. A gazebo will definitely enhance the beauty of your backyard and raise the price of your property.

Colleges don't tolerate any painting of their dorm rooms. But they aren't completely without sympathy for your situation. Dorm rooms usually come with little strips along the ceilings. All you need to do is to buy fabric that is as long as the room is high and attach it to these strips. You will right away end up with a beautifully colorful room that looks new and fresh. You can do as much with fabric as you can with paint. Since fabric comes printed with any kind of pattern you want, hanging fabric on your walls can bring in an even more colorful effect to your room. You can either take the same pattern to go all around or you can mix and match. The choice is entirely up to you (and of course your roommate).Dorm Room Decorating Ideas to Liven Up Your Living Space
If you are a college freshman and you are out every day now shopping for all the essentials to do with setting up house in the college dorm room, it is likely that as much attention as you pay to the bedding, the storage and other such essentials, that you aren't really thinking about how you will decorate your dorm room - to personalize it. Not that you could be blamed for this; people don't really realize how bare and depressing a college dorm room usually is without a little decorating. Colleges have learned about their new students dorm room decorating needs and they usually help them out with poster sales at the beginning of the year. But surely you have bigger ideas for your room than to merely decorate it with a couple of fast cars or movie stars, don't you?
