Great reasons to choose shutters::

Ambient Lighting

M

Mrs J -

May 20

11

Shutters allow in much more light than an net curtains so can increase light in a room while also giving you privacy. When closed, shutters block out the light much more effectively than most ern ns ns. curtains so can help with sleep patterns. Shutters will redirect the light to help p prevent furniture and curtains fading. g.

Health

Mrs P - June 2010

Shutters are not fabric therefore they nd d help people who suffer from eczema and dust allergies resulting from fabrics.

Privacy Shutters offer more privacy - it is much harder to see into a house which has shutters fitted.

Security Shutters offer security, you will feel more secure in your home with shutters.

Maintenance

Mrs M - JJun M une 2200 009

Mrs T - S Septe eptem mber ber 22008 008

Shutters need no maintenance and no painting.

And why choose us?? We are a local family company offering g n affordable prices. We are specialists in the field, only working with Plantation Shutters - NOTHING ELSE.

Leading local developer, Landmark Estates is forging ahead with another new project this weekend. “We have proven with our successful sales record even in these times, that luxury can be affordable and the evidence is that we are extremely busy selling and all our schemes in Southbourne have been 100% sold out in 2011!” says director James Bradley,” in fact we are desperately seeking new sites to keep up with the demand.” Their latest development being released is Seabreeze, at 13 Burtley Road, which offers both a prime holiday and residential location in Southbourne, offering 6 stunning 2 bed apartments with parking. The property is within a stone’s throw from the beach and close to the shops in Southbourne as well a short drive from Hengistbury Head with its Nature Walks, beautiful scenery and a 3 par golf course. It certainly is the place to live and invest in, with

superb modern interiors and patios or Juliette balconies and gardens. “At Landmark we offer a bespoke service to all our buyers from providing solicitors, rental advice and deposit schemes to name but a few things we can do”. “These flats make wonderful homes, holiday flats or investments and to find out the help we can provide or the deals we can do to help purchase one, come along this weekend and meet Charlotte from Landmark on site, who will help and discuss the promotions on offer.” Continues James “From day one you are actually dealing with the developer and that means a better deal can be struck!!” Seabreeze is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 3pm or for viewings outside this time or further information, please telephone 01590 623000 or email: sales@ landmarkestates.co.uk.

Quay results from VisitBritain! Quay Holidays is delighted to announce the results of the latest VisitBritain assessments. The premium letting specialist was awarded one five star award and seven four star awards following an assessment of eight properties. In addition, four of the properties achieved the Gold Award status. Quay Holidays offers some of the highest quality and most stylish accommodation in Poole. The company manages highend, self-contained luxury holiday properties from modern apartments on Poole Quay, to character cottages in Sandbanks. VisitBritain is an internationally-recognised award assessing location, size, facilities, the booking process, the welcome provided and cleaning standards. Quay Holidays Partner, Helen Challis, said: “We are delighted with these results, consistently year-after-year the best grades are achieved. We strongly believe that VisitBritain grading is crucial for self-catering accommodation, it gives the potential guest the comfort of knowing the standard of accommodation they are booking and it also gives us the ability to market the premises on a whole range of VisitBritain portals as well as with Poole Tourism.” The Poole-based company prides itself in consistently achieving the best standards for its services.

Talbot Woods still has the appeal Keith Fensom explains why Talbot Woods and its surrounding area remain popular with buyers. Whether its the convenient location, the style of architecture or the wide tree lined roads, Talbot Woods never ceases to appeal to our clients.

By Keith Fensom Savills Canford Cliffs 01202 708888 kfensom@savills.com

In the last year we’ve sold homes across all price brackets and this demand shows no sign of abating. From family homes full of character to bungalows and apartments, this area seems

to appeal to wide variety of buyers. So far this year we have sold in excess of £7.7 million worth of property in Talbot Woods. Prices for the homes we’ve sold range between £362,000 - £890,000. We have found that there is an equal share of local and out of town buyers who move to the Talbot Woods area from all over the UK. There is a broad range of purchasers but principally they seem to be families who are upgrading and are drawn

to the area because of the highly regarded Talbot Heath School and West Hants Club, also the close proximity of Bournemouth town centre. With Savills strong brand name and international network of over 200 offices, we constantly generate a large database of potential buyers, who are looking to purchase property in prime coastal locations, often for a better quality of life. So if you’re thinking of moving please contact either Keith Fensom or Jacqui Harper on 01202 708888.

DREAM HOME Located on Poole Harbour this substantial character house has a spectacular setting. With a ‘ringside’ seat you can spend hours watching the passing boats, kite-surfers or seabirds. Few properties on the water’s edge benefit from such a large garden and a significant feature for boaters is that there is shelter from the prevailing south-westerly winds providing a safe mooring for boats on your own private jetty. The accommodation has been well maintained and includes four double bedrooms, three bathrooms, three reception rooms and a large kitchen/dining room with many of the principal rooms enjoying the wonderful views out to sea. In the garden room you can enjoy the best of inside and outside living with the large bi-folding doors that open out onto an extensive garden patio area. There is a tandem and double garage and plenty of space for additional car parking and the storage of boats and equipment. The garden has two tiered lawn areas and an array of herbaceous borders. Being set at the end of a residential road the property benefits from no passing traffic. The traditional architecture provides a comfortable and relaxed home, however there is ample scope for significant architectural changes subject to planning should a new owner desire a more contemporary feel.

Resembling a small planetarium, this jaw-droppingly entertaining gizmo beams realistic virtual firework displays across walls and ceilings. It even blasts out suitably explosive sound effects. The only thing missing is the heady aroma of gunpowder mixed with boiled hot dogs. Impressed? Battery-powered, the Sega utilises six lenses, internal speakers and nine interchangeable image discs to replicate various awe-inspiring displays. All you do is select a mode, insert a disc and turn off the lights. Hook up to external speakers and we’re talking Beijing Olympics standard here, folks. £129.99 from www.firebox.com

A few of our fAvourite things... retro Invader couch It’s not often we get to sit on a famous ‘80s icon, unless you count our Airwolf underpants. So park yourself on the Retro Invader Couch and take a trip to a bygone era. Or better yet approach from the left, shuffle sideways, drop down a bit, shuffle the other way, drop down a bit, shuffle sideways again... because this utterly inspired home and office space-invader takes its cues from the classic 1980’s arcade game. Rumoured to have been such a popular button-basher when it first launched that Japan temporarily ran out of 100-yen coins, this iconic couch is no different. Because at £5500 you’ll need all the loose change you can find! But then, that’s the 1980’s for you. £5,500 from www.firebox.com

LUXURY RETIREMENT LIVING Growing older can often be a worry, let Brompton Court put your mind at ease. Blissfully unnoticed by the passers by and idyllically set within a beautifully landscaped oasis of sweeping lawns, meandering pathways, sumptuous flowering borders, mature evergreen trees, lies the majestic Grade II listed building known as Brompton Court. The Court is set on a plateau above the Central Gardens, right in the heart of Bournemouth, being within very close proximity to the Town Centre with its diverse range of shopping and leisure facilities, but just far enough away to appreciate this calm, tranquil and sylvan setting. Originally built in 1855 with Queen Victoria being one of the original patrons and Charles Dickens being one of the buildings more famous supporters, Brompton Court was converted in the year 2000 into 66 fully self

22

contained independent homes to include one and two bedroom apartments and two bedroom bungalows. Visitors and residents are wowed by the luxurious communal facilities, to include the owner’s lounge being previously a chapel and now known as the ‘Great Hall’, a large well appointed dining room offering a tempting 3-course lunch every day of the year and a hobbies room for the yoga or bridge enthusiast. Many just like to stroll through the courtyards and gardens listening to the fountains and to the birds singing, some take the lift down to the street level (Branksome Wood Road) and into Bournemouth Gardens following the stream down past the many attractions towards the beach and Pier Approach.

Lifestyle, Luxury Location!! Brompton Court provides private and independent properties for the retired. Growing older can often be a worry, particularly for people who find it increasingly difficult to manage a home on their own. Most retired people want to retain their independence for as long as possible; the prospect of having to move into a retirement home is often depressing. Brompton Court has come up with a solution by providing a development that caters for people who need some additional support and peace of mind. Brompton Court is a “full service” development consisting of 61 apartments and 5 bungalows. All are privately owned and situated within a secluded, secure retirement development in the heart of the Town Centre, overlooking the Central Gardens in Bournemouth. The development is secure and staffed 24 hours a day, by a Management team. Sarah Brown is the Court Manager at Brompton Court and is responsible for ensuring that grounds, facilities and services at the development are maintained to a high standard. Brompton Court allows owners to continue to live in their own home, rather than become a resident in a retirement home. Our development does not offer medical care, but our housekeeping staff are able to assist owners within their homes and provide as much support as they require. In addition to the private apartments and 24hour staffing, Brompton Court has beautifully furnished shared areas which may be used for socialising and entertaining. The Court has a Great Hall, which is used for coffee mornings, Burn’s Supper, live music as well as the weekly knitting circle. The Court has a beautiful restaurant, function room and Guest Suite, all can be used by the owners and their families. The Court produces a monthly newsletter where information is shared and social events advertised. David and Margaret Cooke purchased one of the 2 bedroom apartments and moved in on the 1st September 2010. “We have enjoyed our first year; we have had pleasure being able to stroll to the sea front and pier which takes approximately 10 minutes of level walking through the lovely Bournemouth gardens. Access for a wheelchair if required is very good with a lift from the garden to the road level into Bourne Avenue that leads to the shopping centre and Gardens leading to the sea front. We were very warmly welcomed at Brompton Court by the Management Team and all the owners. The buildings are beautifully maintained as are the grounds. The garden gives 24


a pleasant area to sit and enjoy the sun. We have settled in well and have no regrets in moving from Henley-on-Thames to Brompton Court in Bournemouth". Brompton Court’s first visitors are often sons, daughters, or other family members who are concerned for the wellbeing of their relative. Families often lead busy lives and are not fortunate enough to have their parents or relatives living nearby. The sons and daughters of our property owners recognize that there’s always someone on hand to provide assistance for their parents and this fact provides them with peace of mind. You also do not have to worry leaving your pets behind. The Court Management team welcome your pets too. Brompton Court has a number of properties for sale on the development. We have one remaining single bedroom apartment for £175,000 then a variety of two bedroom properties from £179,990 to £275,000.

A trip to melt Scrooge's heart Get your trip to see Santa booked now! Lisa Haynes braves the cold as she walks in a winter wonderland.

"warm up to the idea of festive cheer" 50

It's a sunny autumnal day and 'Dear Santa' is a trending topic on Twitter. As a former Scrooge, the prospect of Christmas would be enough to spark the onset of my annual festive fear, but not this Noel. A visit to Esprit Santa's Lapland with my boyfriend - a self-confessed Christmas addict has changed everything. Riding reindeers, huskies and Santa sleighs is one way to set you on a journey to festive cheer quick smart. We were one of few couples without excitable kids in tow but as child-free bystanders it was obvious ages were all-important to 'Lap up' the full experience. Crucially, little ones need to be young enough to believe in the magic of Father Christmas but old enough to understand what's going on - and withstand the hardy climate. Cue one unenthused little girl asking her daddy 'When can we go home?' just 10 minutes after stepping into the thick blanket of snow. Nothing prepares you for the sub-zero temperatures, in our case a nippy -22C. Average December temperatures usually hover around -12C but can dip as low as -30C. Standing in everyday winter clothes, there's no extreme wind chill but the cold is beyond comprehension with a Jack Frost bite to your ears and nose. Temperatures are soon forgotten at the quaint airport of Ivalo when a man wearing traditional furs is standing outside with a beautiful white reindeer to greet us. Despite the lack of red Rudolph nose there are huge grins as children are ushered to line up for a friendly pat, stroke and picture opportunity to capture their first glimpse of festive magic. An eccentric elf leaps around talking gibberish only children might understand and directs everyone onto private coaches which take around 30 minutes to reach the accommodation

in Saariselka, way up in Lapland's snowy far north. It's a great opportunity to soak up the snowy scenes as the kids enter into the spirit singing along to Christmas carols - and as my feet defrost, I warm up to the idea of festive cheer. As we roll past ice-capped trees punctuating marshmallow pink skies, there's little sign of life except for the odd lit-up wood hut. Light in Lapland is scarce in December with around four hours of daylight in the early afternoon and two to three hours of 'grey light' either side, rather like twilight. Grand plans for snow chic go out of the frosted window as we line up for the all-important weather-proof clothing, comprising thermal outersuit, two pairs of thick woollen socks, snow boots, gloves and hats - all provided free of charge. Your packing checklist needs to focus on what's underneath your outersuit - lots of


thermal layers like undies, t-shirts and fleeces along with a jacket. It's also wise to take extra mittens and balaclavas or scarves to cover face and ears. These measures may sound extreme but in the Arctic Circle the right clothing can be the difference between a happy child and toocold temper tantrums. Santa himself doesn't recommend bringing infants under the age of two because they can't move around and keep warm. Lugging a Santa's sack-worth of clothing, we crush through the thick white snow to our hotel, Riekonlinna. Situated close to the village centre, it's a popular family hotel and our room is clean but basic. We test out our haul of snow-friendly fashion with a tobogganing session in the dedicated slope two minutes walk from the hotel. Adults and kids alike are bombing down the hill

51


Key facts - Lapland Best for: Snow, Santa and husky rides. Time to go: December (to catch Santa before his yearly present-giving duties). Don't miss: The Northern Lights - if the weather's right. Need to know: Temperatures can hit -30C.(Now thats nippy) Don't forget: Thermals, and you can't pack too many gloves, hats and scarves.

52

and the sheer thickness of the snow ensures any tumbles are painless - apart from our throbbing exposed icy faces. Braving higher and higher snow heights, we plough down on toboggans laughing louder than the kids. Snowmobile safaris and Northern Lights visits are paid-for optional activities and also weather dependent (see www.santaslapland.com/breaks/ optional-adventures). Sadly, our chance to see the breathtaking Aurora Borealis lights were scuppered by an evening snowstorm. Just like Christmas Eve, we indulge in a mini feast and get an early night ready for the big day - meeting Santa Claus. On a 'Santa's Magic' package, the two-night whistlestop break is geared towards the winter wonderland activity day so it's wise to be fresh for the early start, which makes the most of the short daylight hours. There's extra anticipation aboard the bus for the forest as children chant their Christmas lists with parents and grandparents to report to the man in red. The excitement is infectious. I'm equally thrilled as we're pulled around the stunning snowy forest (aka Santa's grounds) in a cosy sleigh by jingling reindeers and then at breakneck speed by our very own team of six beautiful huskies - undoubtedly the highlight of my trip. After a short demo, adults get to hold

the reins and 'drive' the obedient, energetic dogs using a few simple instructions and braking techniques. There's also the opportunity to try your luck with ice fishing (if you've got the patience) and get creative making snow carvings with blocks of ice and tools for each family. Beware, it can get competitive. The wonderland log cabin is a haven for regular breaks to sup on hot drinks and thaw out and refuel with a simple but sustaining lunch of soup, spaghetti and meatballs. Children trudge in from the snow with beaming faces, presents and high-pitched voices after their visit to see Santa Claus. Each has a different story to recount thanks to preorganised Lapland letters, hand-scrawled at home in advance, so that Santa can magically surprise them with what they've written. Every family enjoys their own private scheduled visit. Feeling enamoured with the spirit of Christmas, it was time for Ms Scrooge to meet her match and visit the man himself... A snowmobile whisks us off at speed into the picturesque woods, stopping at clues to his presence - piles of presents, sleigh - until we finally reach the highly convincing traditional

Lisa Haynes was a guest of Esprit Santa's Lapland programme, which starts on December 1, and offers two nights' half-board at Santa's Hotel Holiday Club in Saariselka from ÂŁ1,589 per family of three ex-Manchester, or from ÂŁ1,616 ex-Gatwick/Stansted.

wooden cabin where excitable elves are throwing snowballs and jumping up and down at our arrival. Suddenly, I feel six years old again. White-bearded Santa welcomes us into his present-laden home and maintains the magic, talking in that gruff voice about his duties and even cracking a corny joke about his wife - "Mary Christmas". My boyfriend leaves Santa's hut punching the air with elation. I can only imagine the excitement a young child might feel. We re-live the day's magical activities over the farewell Christmas lunch, complete with crackers and paper hats. Supping mulled wine, as we peer outside it's snowing thick and fast. This is certainly one way to guarantee the perfect white Christmas - and wave a festive farewell to your inner Scrooge.

GREAT SERVICE, how often do we hear those words and then find out that they were just words and did not carry through to actions?

This is then strengthened by maintaining contact during the period between order and delivery and then ensuring that the installation is perfect; our Master Fitters always treat the customer’s house like a home and our feedback shows that this is key to completing an excellent job. We ask our customers for their comments after each and every installation and independent

customer testimonials show that our high levels of customer service from start to finish result in recommendations to friends and family and repeat business. Asking for feedback so that we can be sure that we provide the best possible service means acting on suggestions wherever possible, in fact some of our most successful changes have been as a direct result of a simple query from a customer. Maintaining high levels of customer trust and confidence in our staff and the products we supply is critical to the continued success of the company and this can only be strengthened by delivering excellent service to our customers at all times. Owners Chris and Helen Rocker founded the company over five years ago and the Just Shutters team has more than doubled in size in the past twelve months. Over this period the company has developed rapidly, yet has retained a great family atmosphere so often neglected in other organisations. The Just Shutters team: Chris and Helen Rocker, owners William, designer Kate, Martin and Zhydrun, Master Fitters Ian, Andrew and Peter, franchisees Louise, marketing manager Rita, showroom assistant

Everyone in the Just Shutters team feels passionately about the customer and all have heavily customer focussed backgrounds. Teamwork, excellent product knowledge and constant communication is critical to a great experience and the ongoing training and support that the team receive ensures that the customer benefits. At a time when most customers have demanding family and work commitments it is often the case that home visits and appointments for installations are undertaken outside of and additional to a ‘normal’ working day. The design and installation team as well as the franchisees always go the extra mile to accommodate the customers’ schedules and their feedback reflects how grateful they are that a company puts their requirements first. When the showroom is closed outside of working hours, it is the case that the telephones are switched through to a home or mobile number to allow the customer contact and thereby ensure that effective communications are maintained. Being invited into a customer’s home creates the need for a high level of personal and professional integrity and the whole team upholds this core value at all times.

Enfield's on the scent of great roses

64


Writer and broadcaster Edward Enfield may be best known for his entertaining observations on old age and travel and for being the father of comedian Harry Enfield, but he's also an expert in the garden, particularly when it comes to roses. With 50 years of gardening experience under his belt in the garden of the house he has lived in throughout that time, set in three-quarters of an acre in West Sussex, he now shares some of his horticultural experiences in his latest book, Growing To A Ripe Old Age. For a while, he became obsessed with roses, he admits, joining the Royal National Rose Society (RNRS) and entering his roses in the Billingshurst Show. "Roses can become an obsession, a mania, a disease, and I caught it. Some of the madder members (of the RNRS) refer to themselves by the fairly frightful sobriquet of 'rosarians', and while I never went as far as that, I went pretty far. "I got all the society's books and used to sit up late into the night with catalogues of roses, planning and re-planning beds of different shapes with roses of different combinations to go in different parts of the garden." He's grown all manner of roses, from hybrid teas and floribundas, to China roses, David Austin roses, shrub roses, ramblers and more, and has even tried growing roses from seed. "I am pleased to say that sanity has returned and we are now down to one excellent rose bed with a few other roses here and there," he reflects. During his rose show days, he used to spray his prize roses to stop black spot and mildew, took action against greenfly and other aphids and would strip all but one bud from the leading shoots in the hope of obtaining one perfect bloom on each. These days, the former columnist for The Oldie is more relaxed about his roses. "My bed isn't colour co-ordinated. They're just jumbled up. I'm very bad on colours. I tend to wear the wrong coloured pullover with the wrong trousers. "Anyway, I don't believe that roses ever clash. So any mixed bed will look OK as long as you have the heights right, so obviously don't put the short-growing ones in the middle, or they'll disappear." Today, he has one main rose bed comprising mainly hybrid teas, with the occasional David Austin thrown in, and another smaller one in the vegetable patch which he uses for cutting. He grows around a dozen varieties but among his favourites is 'Sutter's Gold', a hybrid tea rose with deep yellow blooms with a pink flush. "It's quite an old rose, but for all its failings, in that it doesn't last very long in water, it has a wonderful scent, grows on lovely long stems and produces blooms of a perfect shape." He thinks it's best to grow roses in one bed and to feed them three times - once in spring, another in summer and the third in autumn -

and spray them against fungi and mildew once a fortnight throughout summer. "There are those who have a childlike faith in spraying greenfly with soap and water in the belief that this will drown them, which in my experience it doesn't. "You can choose a proprietary insecticide which boasts of its Green, organic and generally harmless properties, but I find these also to be harmless to the creatures they are meant to kill. "So I can only suggest that you look along the shelf in the garden centre and choose some poison which somehow persuades you that it might do the job." He also takes care over pruning, although he recalls an experiment by one of the horticultural societies in which one lot of rose bushes were pruned lightly, another lot heavily and a third were hacked with a hedge cutter. "To the great surprise of one and all, those hacked off with the hedge cutter did the best," he recalls, although he's never been brave enough to do that to his own roses. "I go and do it all properly," he sighs, "pruning them twice, cutting out the dead wood and spindly little growths in autumn, then shortening the main stems so they don't rock about in the wind. "Then in March, when growth is about to start, I prune them some more, where possible cutting to an outward eye, where a group of leaves join the stem." A final tip to boost your roses? "Roses rather like Epsom salts, which is magnesium sulphate, and probably will do extra well if you put a teaspoon of Epsom salts into the spray, when you are spraying the leaves."

KEY DRUMMONDS QUICK RESPONSE TO QR Key Drummond Estate Agents are one of the first estate agents in Poole and Bournemouth to utilise Quick Response (QR) codes on their marketing material. Daniel Fudge- Harman, Associate Director says '”In this day and age we would be foolish not to embrace this technology within our industry. As an established and reputable agency we needed software to help retain our high-end client services and using such tools as QR codes and social media advertising this keeps us at the cutting edge of marketing. By just using a QR code included in a newspaper advert a prospective buyer or vendor would be able to scan the code using their smart phone, view the property in full and even book a viewing or valuation. It’s that simple”.

How about a quick demo…

So what’s the big deal?

You can try it yourself using the QR code above in less than a minute! If you have a smart phone, you can download a FREE QR reader App in seconds… simply tap on your App Store logo – tap on search – type ‘free QR reader’ in the search – download one of the free apps – tap on your new QR reader App and scan it over the QR code below – and see what happens.

Well for estate agents it really is a win/win situation. Purchasers will embrace it because they don’t have to waste their time trawling through all the properties that would not suit their requirements. Sellers understand and appreciate that we are bringing highly focused buyers who have shortlisted their property before setting foot in the door. We have already seen the benefit of using QR codes, with an almost immediate reaction to our advertising and an increase in specific property enquiries driven through this medium. Key Drummond are so confident in the difference QR and social media will make as a whole that they are about to begin promoting their participation in all aspects of branded marketing tools. If you wish to discuss the extent of our marketing material then please do not hesitate to contact Key Drummond on 01202 700771 or 01202 700888

Scan me...

HOUSE recommends QRAFTER available from the App store

Why Key Drummond have started using QR codes… In our case, the ‘product, or brand’ that we want to direct people to, is our ‘clients property’. Key Drummond goes to great lengths to attract the very best buyers with our professional photography, floorplans and overall attention to detail. When you have a property register as large as ours it is vitally important for us to ensure that we make every single property stand out on our website, www.keydrummond.com, and the many other property portals to which we subscribe.

Six of the best tech for tots

It would appear that most kids from a very early age are now having a jab of their sticky fingers on your touchscreen device.But it's your shiny gadget and their jam-covered digits need another outlet.

There are plenty of devices and hundreds of apps with tots in mind that combine fun and education to feed their curious minds. Here's our round up of tech that's ideal for kids.

Apptivity Case

LeapPad Explorer

Vtech InnoTab

Drops And Dribbles

Apple Biter

Tots Tablet

Leave your phone lying around for a moment and there is little doubt that any toddler who spots it will try to get their hands on it. Not only does it protect your phone, there are numerous baby-friendly apps available to download. Chunky handles, a rattle and mirror on the back will amuse them even when the battery runs out, or when mum needs the phone back!

Billed as a learning tablet for kids, this smartlooking device from LeapFrog is ideal for children aged from three years old. It includes a camera and video recorder and offers a fun learning experience through ebooks, games, videos and more than 100 apps. This new genre of plaything looks set to be big this Christmas.

Even with the omission of camera and video capabilities, the InnoTab is still worth a look. Compatible with the Kidizoom camera range, children can view images on the five-inch touchscreen and access more than 100 apps for fun and learning combined. The InnoTab features an SD-card slot and MP3 player, which may, for some, edge it ahead of the competition.

Pure Fun

This iMarker digital stylus is the crayon-like device that brings the ColorStudio HD app to life. It acts as a marker, crayon, pen and paintbrush in one and creates Crayola colours within the app. There are pictures to fill in, animations to interact with, sound effects, and the app always updates with the latest pictures when you sync your iPad.

Fans of the antics of the animated inhabitants of Radiator Springs will be open mouthed when they see this app in action. Take the car to the screen to race around courses and complete missions. The on-screen action as you drive through mud, water and dirt roads is utterly brilliant. The kids may struggle to prise this from your hands!

For pure grin-inducing fun, grab this radiocontrolled car, build a course on the kitchen floor and let the race begin. The car, which is also available in red, is controlled via an interactive steering wheel, so make your move and watch as the whopping 32cm-long racer manoeuvres around indoor and outdoor tracks.

REVIEW HANDY BY MIRKA As a professional I want to buy quality tools, tools that do the job well tools that are built to last... Well let me introduce the best sanding block I have ever seen!! With all the benefits of the ABRANET SYSTEM, HANDY by Mirka. After using the ABRANET ergonomic sanding block I found it incredible useful, great for everything I needed to sand from door frames to skirting to window sills, doors, staircases in fact anything that needed sanding. I thought if the block had a "D" handle it would give so much more control and be a little bit more comfortable. I fed this back to Mirka and through determination they produced the "Handy" By introducing a 'D' type handle it gives the tradesperson more control, control that is needed and is welcomed because you can vary what presure is needed and still have a good hold of the tool. It's so comfortable! The block becomes an extension of your hand and allows you to feel the Walls-ceilings and surfaces as you're sanding. It has a comfortable soft grip handle. 55 holes in the base pad makes for truly amazing dust suction via a Mirka extraction unit and as the ABRANET abrasives are in fact a net the dust is sucked through the whole face of the sheet helping reduce clogging but most importantly keeping the working surface clean. The famous MIRKA yellow and black looks good and will have other tools blushing in any decorating store! I used to always use the hand sander blocks that the dry liners use. With the wing nuts holding the abrasive. Then moved over to ABRANET & CEROS, now the 'HANDY by Mirka is my favourite sanding block, I literally can't put it down. PROS 1 - More control - 2 - Air vents below handle create a small air flow helping cool the hand and aid dust removal 3 - Swivel end helps reduce hose tangle 4 - Virtually dust free sanding, good for our health... Great for our customers! WWW.MIRKA.CO.UK WRITTEN AND REVIEWED BY Wayne de Wet, DECORATING SPECIALIST AND DULUX SELECT DECORATOR OF THE YEAR 2011 GRAND WINNER 88

New look for a new season All eyes might have been on the fashion catwalks recently, but the most important trends for decoristas are those emerging on the high street. Interiors experts give their view on what's hot and what's not for autumn and predict the looks that will stay smart into 2012.

Autumn chills can easily be banished by the popular new trends in homeware emerging on the high street. There's something for every taste from modern to vintage and, even if a complete makeover is beyond your budget, it's perfectly possible to echo styles in key, affordable pieces or accessories with impact. "Blame it on TV's Mad Men, but our appetite for all things Fifties and Sixties is insatiable," says Isobel McKenzie-Price, editorial director of Ideal Home magazine. "That's one futuristic houses, chores are minimised of the key trends and at the other end ofInthe scale, but equally strong, is the and effects breathtaking, all thanks to New Victorian decor, inspired by our yearning for theare security and stability of new technology. We explore the brave new past eras and a certain nostalgia." world for homes. An eclectic country style, celebrating the beauty of one-off treasures, rustic wood and natural materials will also continue to charm, she predicts, while glamour, sparkle and shine is guaranteed to star in fashionable homes next year. "I think all these styles have real staying power - not just for the season but right through 2012," she predicts. Follow her guide to the four top trends for home decor.

Daborn armchair, £600, Habitat; Quebec sideboard, £375, Next; Abaca pendant shade, £19.99 each, Homebase; London grey framed print, £60; Cara teal throw, £15, both John Lewis; blue vase, £15, tealight holders, £15 for three, all Marks & Spencer; Hollow vase, £65, The Conran Shop; black throw, £24.99, H&M; Ink cushion, £39, Tinsmiths

Make it modern Cool design classics from the Fifties and Sixties are enjoying a revival and are must-have pieces for contemporary rooms. "MidCentury Modern is the perfect look for our time - simple, paredback, elegant, and seriously stylish in an unassuming way," says McKenzie-Price. "It's a look that really is timeless, and perfectly suited to our smaller living spaces too, which is probably why it's such a winner." This time around, she says, it's interpreted in a pared-back Scandi-style, so avoid wacky graphics and kitsch colours, and simply allow statement furniture pieces to star, and team with a chalky neutrals colour scheme, subtle patterned wallpapers, and injections of moody ochre colours. Follow the trend: "You can always tell if a trend has staying power when the big retailers commit to it," says McKenzie-Price. "Mid-Century furniture is everywhere from John Lewis to House of Fraser and Marks & Spencer's new Conran range. Check out wallpapers such as linear graphic patterns from Harlequin or those with stylised seed heads from Villa Nova." 92

Chic & sleek glamour Banish the blues - or at any rate the gloom of hard times - by indulging in full-on fab decor. "Forget the bling - this season, it's all about sophistication and luxury with a contemporary twist," says McKenzie-Price. "It's the modern version of Marie Antoinette in Versailles - the world may be crumbling, so let's live for the moment!" Create this with a monochrome scheme based on geometric prints, she advises, and then add a pop of vivid colour to create instant glamour and focus. "Shapes are geometric and linear and classic pieces are reinvented in ultra-modern finishes. "Gloss and shine are essential elements - lustrous leather, gleaming mirrors, glassware and sleek surfaces - all of which bounce light around. "And the must-have accent colour for this look is deep raspberry avoid red, it's far too Eighties." Follow the trend: Source sofas and dining furniture from stores such as Dwell and Furniture Village, she advises, while Next is an excellent source for glamour decor. Graham & Brown's range includes stunning black and white wallpapers, and Tesco and Debenhams both have stylish accessory collections.

Eclectic country Traditional farmhouse, elegant French and vintage are all ingredients of the new interpretation of country. "The great British love affair with country style never ends, but this year our passion for all things rustic is at fever pitch," says McKenzie-Price. "It seems we're all in the mood for nesting, and the relaxed feel at the heart of country has hit the spot perfectly. "But this is definitely an updated version - and it's all about putting your own eclectic stamp on classic elements, such as soft linens, worn wooden furniture and layers of texture. Follow the trend: Laura Ashley's buttercup yellow and duck-egg blue palette is particularly appealing, says McKenzie-Price, and House of Fraser is showcasing designer Rachel Ashwell's new Shabby Chic Collection with pretty furniture and a subtle grey and pale pink palette. Accessorise with chunky knit cushions, throws and sheepskin bean bags from companies such as Heal's, Marks & Spencer and The White Company.

Fulham biker tan leather armchair with reversible Moleskin seat cushion, £999; velvet cushion, £30; Corrine table lamp, £60; embossed metal 5 x 7 frame, £22; tall candlestick, £22; small candlestick, £12; vintage style fragranced candle, £15; embellished 5x7 frame, £16; Balmoral teacup and saucer set, £25; Buckingham teacup and saucer set £25, all from the Shabby Chic collection at House of Fraser

New Victorian The highly decorative look of the Victorian era is reborn with a rich colour palette, eclectic accessories and a galaxy of patterns. "This look is waiting in the wings," predicts McKenzie-Price. "This is the big grown-up sister of the girly vintage look that's been around for the past couple of years. "But forget pretty florals, crystal and lace - this is seriously Pre-Raphaelite and intense. "Think dark colours - peacock blue, charcoal grey, mulberry and purple - and ornate patterns." Big bold damasks in flock on a shiny ground, velvets, chenille and sumptuous textures are essential ingredients, she says. Make a button back sofa an iconic piece, and preferably in leather. Follow the trend: Look to companies like Multiyork for classic furniture that can be customised in a bold colour or pattern, she suggests, or visit online companies such as Sofa. com or Argos. Sanderson and Laura Ashley have great NeoVictorian style wallpapers and quirky decorative pieces suitable for your own stately home: stags heads for the wall, stuffed animals in bell jars and ornate mirrors from boutique companies such as Pedlars.

DREAM HOME

What comes first in most peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property search? The house or the garden? I reckon in 85% of cases the house is the most important factor. So if that is the case then this Dream Home is certain to resonate with a lot of buyers out there. Situated on Littledown Avenue, this stunning four bedroom 3 reception room family home is chock full of original features, style and grandeur. The property has undergone a schedule of maintenance that has modernised the kitchen and bathroom, whilst capturing the charm of the spacious lounge, dining room and hall, stairs and landing. The landing has a beautiful stained glass window that throws a lovely light across the common parts. There is a conservatory, utility room, ensuite shower room to the master bedroom and downstairs cloakroom. The outside has a large frontage with block paviour, garage and small rear garden that is wide rather than deep but does face southerly and is a real sun trap. In short this beautiful family home offers all the trappings of modern life, with the elegance of the period in which the house was built. Internal viewing is a must to truly appreciate the proportions and style.

KELLY HOPPEN Exclusive interview with the ‘Superior Interiors’ star designer

110

Renowned British interior designer Kelly Hoppen has been at the top of her field since her teens, with ostensibly the pinnacle of her career being her MBE for services to interior design which she received in March 2009. Kelly has recently appeared on our TV screens in her hugely successful series , Superior Interiors with Kelly Hoppen on Channel 5. In an exclusive interview with HOUSE, Style & Living, Kelly reveals more about what makes her tick as well as some behind the scenes snippets from the show. Your new show sees you doing what you do best, which is transform the interiors of people’s homes. Have you enjoyed making the series and what have you learnt? Absolutely! And I’ve learned a lot. Mainly, that you can’t buy style! Everyone can do with a little guidance and a helping hand. It was great to feel like I really made a difference to these people, not just in terms of their homes but in helping create a space they could really enjoy. Did you find the experience of working on the show any different to when you usually work with clients off screen? Only in that I’m giving people an opportunity they otherwise might not have, access to an interior designer. Every person who needs help with their home is, ultimately, the same. It’s about bringing out their own personalities in their space and creating surroundings that really work for them on every level. What were the highlights of making the show? It was a completely new experience for me – having a camera follow my every move! Seeing the reactions once people’s homes were completed was a definite highlight, knowing that I’ve made them smile. Were there any projects that infuriated you or made you wish you could throw in the towel? I can honestly say I enjoyed each and every project I worked on. There are invariably challenges you come up against but being an interior designer you have to be prepared for this and adapt to find the best solution. Often the most rewarding projects are those that were the most difficult, the end result always makes it worthwhile. Were there any off screen dramas? There are always dramas in any design project. As the clients were managing the projects themselves it was them who had to deal with the issues as they arose. Renovation/building works are always challenging. What is life like as an interior designer? I love it! I’m incredibly lucky to be doing a job I am totally passionate about. It is hard work and long hours, I recently came back from a tour around Asia in eight days and literally didn’t stop but it is exhilarating to see your work come to fruition. I also love the versatility, whether a client’s home, a hotel , designing my range for QVC or even a charity affiliation (I recently re-designed the classic Arne Jacobsen Chair as part of The Pink Swan Project for Breast Cancer Research). Variety really is the spice of life! Have you always wanted to be an interior designer and how did you get into it? Even as a young girl I was always fascinated


by people’s homes. I would be able to look at a room and transform it into a completely different space in my mind. Interior design always came very naturally to me. There was no 'moment' - it just always felt right. What advice would you give to anyone considering a career in interior design? Be passionate and really listen to people. Often clients think they know what they want but if you listen carefully it turns into something completely different. Always take inspiration from everything you do as well. Whether a family holiday, your favourite photograph or an art exhibition, all these things often influence my work and are so important in stimulating new ideas and a fresh approach. Do you have a particular interior design style? I would say clean lines, organic shape and texture are key elements to my design style. Combining textures, incorporating organic shapes and materials, using signature colour palettes and displaying objects are all very important to any home or project I design. What is your home interior like? My home is my sanctuary and a very versatile space, whether relaxing on my own or entertaining for friends.Each room has a different feel to it where lighting plays an integral part to change the mood. The kitchen is the theatre and heart of my home and takes up most of the ground floor. I knew from the outset that I wanted a comfortable and open series of spaces with a monochrome and textured palette. What are your top tips for good interior design? I would really recommend putting a mood board together to help you visualise the space you are transforming or re-furbishing. Lighting is also incredibly important to make your space versatile for both day and night as well as adding drama and focus to beautiful works of art, sculpture or the prized possessions you may have. What are definite interior design no nos? If you have just moved into a new home you often find it takes time to adjust to your new space. I would advise against buying expensive items until you get used to the space. Often your taste changes or you see the space differently after a while. What would be your interior design fashion tips for the forthcoming year? I don’t like to follow trends as trends date quickly. I would always suggest keeping things neutral and if you want to add accents of the times then look to fashion as your inspiration. With so many people having to watch the purse strings at the moment do you think good design can still be achieved on a small budget? Absolutely. Good design can be achieved on a small budget. My show Superior Interiors really re-enforced this. There are some amazing buys on the high street for your home, some of the fashion retailers who offer home wares such as Zara are excellent. I also have my own range of affordable homeware for QVC. I’m always excited about designing this range as home ware doesn’t have to cost a fortune to be qood quality and look great. What has been the highlight of your career? I think receiving my MBE was an extremely

special moment for me. All the hard work and dedication seemed worth it. You have also turned your hand to creating your own range of shutters and other home accessories. What made you decide to diversify your career in this way? Being an interior designer you have to be versatile. Designing is what I am best at so it is really rewarding to be able to work on numerous ranges and focus on creating beautiful items. What does the future hold for you? I have a lot of new projects for 2012 but I must say I really enjoyed filming Superior Interiors. The people made it such a pleasure that I would love to do more in this area... Watch this space!! How do you like to spend your time relaxing away from work? With work being so busy I really enjoy the simple things in life. This can be visiting an art gallery or an antiques market through to reading a book at home. What is your favourite place in the world and why? Mauritius. I went there last year and it is just beautiful. I can’t wait to return and soon!

Will Croker Discretion is the better part of Valour! Knights Director & HOUSE columnist Will Croker discusses why some times a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. I love a cliché! Try and spot the odd one out; ‘The boy done good’, ‘location, location, location’, ‘six of one, half a dozen of the other’, ‘a game of two halves’ and ‘this offer is from a buyer with nothing to sell, it is within 3% of your asking price and the market is falling. I would advise you to strongly consider this’. I think the odd one out is the last one, because the rest of them are needless, yet colourful sound bites that should be ignored in conversation. Where as the last one is one that people seem to be ignoring regularly when they really should be listening. You see three times in the last month I have had that conversation. Three times the sellers seem to have known best and have declined the offer, often hanging out for as little as 2% more. I honestly believe that some people are oblivious to what is going on in the world. You see there are some good buyers around at the moment but they are educated as to the market trends and therefore have very fixed ideas on price. Now, if the Newspapers and TV reports are to be believed there is a very real threat of a whole country going bust any day. Not just a bank, like Lehman Brothers, that started this madness all those years ago, but a whole flipping member state of the Euro Zone. Surely people must understand that if Greece goes bust or any other member state for that matter then the ramifications for Britain are huge. Europe is our major trading partner, exports would crash, as would job security as thousands of migrant workers sought out the security of Sterling. We would probably be plunged back to the centre of a recession and it would be a very long way out. This sounds very doom and gloom, I know, and for those of you that don’t know me; that is really not what I am about. However, if I put my positive ‘don’t worry the Germans are coming to save everyone’ hat on, then still the picture is slightly soiled by increasing inflation and higher unemployment figures than were predicted. I know a lot of estate agents are struggling at the moment through conversations I have had with them, often for precisely these reasons. Christmas is coming and the uncertainty seems to have produced a higher level of inactivity than one would have predicted for this time of year. That is why, when we find good buyers willing to pay good money, we are trying to help you do what’s best. Prices are falling and by spring will be 4-5% lower than they are at the minute. That means a house currently worth £300,000 will be up to £15,000 less in 6 months. Surely then hanging out for an extra £3000 seems futile. Clichés have their place and sometimes a bird in the hand truly is better than waiting to see how the cookie crumbles.

Swing into Sixties Mode

131


Do this season's time warp trend and get into the swinging Sixties revival. Lisa Haynes reveals how to channel a mod-ish mood. 2

3

132

You need to look backwards to look fashion-forward this season. A retro takeover has hit the fashion scene in a big way, with the Sixties being the influential decade of choice. No matter if you worked the look the first time around, this trend is as fresh and upbeat as it was in its swinging heyday. Look to the catwalk's finest for 2011 inspiration: Bottega Veneta and Jean Paul Gaultier opted for ladylike dressing with elegant Sixties shifts, while Prada and DKNY showcased a more playful spin with graphic print pinafores and Peter Pan collars. Burberry's entire mod coat collection was even dedicated to Sixties icon Jean Shrimpton. Retro looks have made their mark on the high street too, with a multitude of Sixtiesinspired styles practically swinging from the rails. So it's time to embrace your inner Twiggy and channel Sixties chic.

Sixties-esque shapes The most distinguishable element of Sixties styling is all in the silhouette. This is not a trend for fuss or frills - think sleek, minimalist shapes that look uber-modern but with that all-important hint of Sixties mod. Look to your winter coat for an investment buy that speaks Sixties volumes with its shape. Go slouchy with a cocoon style with sloping shoulders and cropped bracelet sleeves, or more structured, with a trim coat that has an almost military feel with over-obvious pockets and buttons. An A-line shift dress is another wardrobe essential of the decade. This flattering shape is cut high on the neckline with a subtle triangular cut that skims over the body, disguising a multitude of sins.


Retro staples Decade details Trousers and maxi lengths don't really figure in the Sixties wardrobe so prepare to bare your pins. Don't fret, every short piece feels a whole lot more wearable with opaque tights. The Mary Quant-inspired mini is a fail-safe separate that looks effortlessly Sixties. Go mad for minis in cool black, block colours or crazy retro prints. Give the ubiquitous shift dress added versatility by wearing layered with a polo neck underneath by day and sleeveless by night to make it the perfect party essential. Wear uber-short with boyish flats for Carnaby Street cool or just above the knee with heels for Audrey Hepburn glamour. Up your retro game with statement leg-wear by teaming shorter pieces with a pair of block-heeled kneelength leather boots. Tan is the obvious colour but, if you're feeling brave, Prada's Sixtiesstyled models stepped out in bright snakeskin booties.

Going retro isn't for everyone but you don't have to go the whole beehive to play Sixties dress-up. The stylish decade is packed with mini mod details and playful accessories to recreate the youthful spirit. A Peter Pan collar is this season's must-have neckline of choice. As seen on coats, tops, dresses and shirts, opt for a contrast in colour or texture for maximum impact, like white on black or a fur-tipped collar coat. You can really get your Sixties swing on with a structured handbag. Influenced by op art, PVC typified the era and plastic bags dominated the accessory stands so go for shiny textures like patent in a punchy colour, snake print or mock croc. For evening, ditch the clutch and opt for a boxy shaped bag with a cross-body strap.

Mod colour The Sixties palette is split into three distinct camps: classic camels, juicy brights and the monochromatic. Whatever shapes and staples you're wearing, you can instantly work some mod spirit into your look with top-to-toe black and white. Monochrome is effortlessly Chanel-chic and easy to master, especially in gingham prints. Sticking to Sixties minimalist cuts and teaming together neutral caramel, camel and toffee tones is another retro way to reference the decade with pieces you might already have lurking in your wardrobe. Watch for mothballs if they're actual Sixties gems. Block colours in blues, oranges, pinks and greens look instantly retro teamed with lashings of black. If you're a colour fanatic, go wild with graphic Mondrian-inspired patterns or garish Sixties-look wallpaper prints.

The Young Ones are Back Lord Sugar, Nick Hewer and Karren Brady are back in the boardroom for Junior Apprentice, The formidable threesome explain what they're looking for in this year's candidate. Not many people can afford to park their car in central London on a weekday but, on the kerb outside the launch venue for Young Apprentice stands Lord Alan Sugar's black Rolls Royce - number plate AMS 1 - gleaming in the autumn sun. The technology entrepreneur has earnt himself this luxury during a successful career which started when he left school at 16. He's now hoping to inspire other young people to follow in his footsteps with a second series of Young Apprentice, in which 12 bright 16 and 17-year-olds compete to win ÂŁ25,000 of Lord Sugar's backing for their own business ventures. The first series last year - which was called Junior Apprentice - was a critical success, with 17-year-old computer expert Arjun Rajyagor crowned the winner after a nailbitingly close final. The new series comes at a time when, because of the summer riots, young people are in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. Lord Sugar, who is sitting bolt upright in between his on-screen advisors Nick Hewer and Karren Brady, says: "Regretfully, this summer we saw some events when some young people got a really bad image, but this series proves that there are great kids

around too. It does a great service." It's also timely considering how much university tuition fees are set to rocket. Neither Lord Sugar nor football executive Brady went to university (Hewer went to University College in Dublin) and Lord Sugar sees no reason why teenagers can't start up their own businesses after leaving school. He says: "We want to show you can start something from nothing. We want to get away from this culture of going to university, then going to have a gap year for two years, then getting a job at some consultants or going on the dole. "There's too much of what I call an expectancy culture. I'm afraid to say that the goody-goody benefits system has made it a bit too cushy for people and now it's time for a wake-up call. This programme proves that you can start to make some money and stand on your own two feet." The first episode certainly shows this is possible. The hopefuls are split into two teams of boys and girls, then told to produce and sell their own ice cream. To reveal the outcome would spoil the programme, but Lord Sugar says he was impressed with how much profit both teams made in one day. "It really is frightening how good they are. And you'll see, as the series rolls on, how they rival some contestants on the normal Apprentice in terms of their performance," he says. The trio believe they're already seeing the effect the show has

had on young people watching it. Hewer tells a story about being invited to a school to have lunch with eight teenage prefects - and all eight of them had already started up their own businesses. "It's extraordinary, and we're proud that more young people are beginning to think like that," he says. Brady thinks the show has inspired other young people to believe a Lord Sugar lifestyle is within their reach: "It goes to show that with a bit of energy, a spark of an idea and absolute determination, you can start something from nothing. And when we talk to young people, that's what they say they take from the series," she adds. Sugar, Brady and Hewer are pointedly softer in their approach to the young contestants than they are with their older counterparts. That said, there is still the inevitable finger-pointing and firing at the end of each episode. With The X Factor being criticised for allowing 16-year-olds to compete in cutthroat competition, the debate about age rumbles on. Sugar reveals that when he first conceived the show, he wanted to invite contestants as young as 14 along, but realised this would be unworkable. He admits there are concerns about putting 16-yearolds on television, but adds: "These kids are very well looked after. We wouldn't have anything to do with exploiting youngsters. On occasion, some get a bit emotional, so we calm down, stop,

give them time and move on." "Some of them are running their own businesses now anyway," adds Brady. "And Nick and I see them all the time when we're out on tasks. They're very mature, very together and very articulate." Hewer nods, and says: "The proof is they love it. They have more fun than you can imagine." Last year, 16-year-old finalist Zoe Plummer caused a stir and was branded by some publications as bossy, but Sugar says she is having the last laugh. "Zoe has a business running now so she's alright," he says, smiling. "And there will be people coming out of this series who'll do OK too." As for last year's winner, Sugar says his computer building venture is flourishing and the two still have regular contact. "I drip-feed the prize money to the winners. Arjun's first bit of cash bought a bit of kit for his business, then the second bit came through a year after for his premises - and he's still nowhere near to spending it all," Sugar says proudly. He's a perfect example of what Brady, Hewer and Sugar believe can be achieved with a bit of hard work. Brady concludes: "Our series doesn't show the quick fix. It's not a talent show. You do have to actually think about things, you need to know a little bit about maths and you do have to work hard and show determination. But with that, great things can be achieved."

LOVE YOUR BODY Plenty of women, and a few men, hate bits of their body for no major reason, which could mean they've got body dysmorphic disorder, a psychological condition said to have affected Michael Jackson. As the actress Sarah Michelle Gellar also reveals she has the condition, psychologists describe its symptoms, and how to escape its grip. Most of us have parts of our body we dislike, and would love to swap that big nose, large chin or ugly scar for something a little more 'perfect'. The chances are, however, that you can live with your 'bad bit' unless you have body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). If that's the case, then a perceived flaw can ruin your life, and even drive you to suicide. And what's particularly cruel about this psychological condition is that the terrible 'flaw' that sufferers obsess about isn't at all noticeable to others. It may not even exist, and even if it does, its size and significance is all in the mind of the person with BDD. The condition is by definition an obsession with a part of your body that only you think there's a problem with, and that's why it's also known as imagined ugliness syndrome. People with BDD will often resort to plastic surgery in an attempt to improve their perceived physical problem. It's a condition that Michael Jackson was said to have, and may well explain why his appearance changed so much since he was a child star. However, Dr David Veale, a consultant psychiatrist at London's Priory Hospital and an expert in BDD, points out that even if sufferers are satisfied with their plastic surgery results, it doesn't necessarily bring an end to their turmoil. He says: "Often, people with BDD will have plastic surgery and aren't very happy with it. The problem just gets transferred and they become preoccupied with other parts of their body." Michael Jackson was just one of several celebrities either

thought to have BDD, or who have admitted they have it. Just last month, Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar said she suffered from the disorder, and singer Lily Allen is also reported to be a sufferer. Veale, co-author of the book Overcoming Body Image Problems And Body Dysmorphic Disorder (Robinson, £10.99), says: "For people with body dysmorphic disorder, the problem is on their mind all the time, although they're fixating on a feature that's not noticeable to others. "It causes a great deal of distress and shame, and can be devastating in social situations." The condition often begins in adolescence, when young people's bodies are changing and they're becoming more sensitive about them. It can sometimes occur in those who've been bullied, and perhaps in people who are artistic and have a strong sense of the importance of aesthetics. It affects both men and women, and Veale explains: "If they highlighted their problem to you and you got really close, sometimes you might just about be able to see what they're going on about. "But they see themselves as being a crooked nose, or whatever it is they have a problem with, and that's all they are." Veale, who is also a patron of the charity Anxiety UK, which helps people with anxiety problems including BDD, says many people with the condition can suffer for as long as 15 years before being diagnosed. While some have it mildly, in others it can be so severe that they're suicidal. He adds: "It's purely a psychological problem. We all dislike our own body in some way, but that's very different from BDD." The skin is the most common location for a perceived body defect in a BDD sufferer, followed by hair, nose, eyes, legs/knees, chin/jaw, breasts, lips and stomach/waist. It's not known what proportion of the population has BDD,

although Veale says surveys have estimated it could be 1% to 2% of people. Psychologist Kasia Szymanska, of the British Psychological Society, says the condition is probably under-diagnosed: "Individuals with BDD often don't want to tell their doctor about how they feel because they're ashamed, or worry their doctor may think they're vain." Sufferers tend not to believe relatives or friends who say they look OK, and may spend long periods in front of a mirror trying to disguise their 'flaw'. "This fixation on one or more aspects of their appearance can lead to anxiety or even depression," says Szymanska. "Some people may even start to avoid seeing their friends or struggle to go to work because in their mind, they see themselves as ugly or abnormal looking." Anxiety UK says more than 90% of BDD sufferers perform repetitive, time-consuming behaviours, usually to examine, improve or hide their perceived defect. Around 60% have major depression, 40% have social phobia and a third have obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). Some also have substance misuse disorders. "We all have days when we believe we look better and days when we look worse," says Szymanska. "But a person with BDD is constantly preoccupied with their appearance, to the extent that it can start to wreck their life." Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is the "treatment of choice" for BDD, sometimes in combination with antidepressants. Hypnotherapy may also be used. CBT helps people think differently about themselves and their perceived flaws, and spend less time focusing on their appearance. "The ultimate aim of the therapy is self-acceptance, so individuals can learn to like themselves as they are," says Szymanska. "There is help available for people with BDD, but they need to have the courage to ask for it."

BODY DYsmORphic DisORDER — KNOW ThE sYmpTOms Frequently comparing your appearance with others and scrutinising their appearance. — Often checking your appearance in mirrors and other reflective surfaces - or completely avoiding mirrors. — Camouflaging the perceived defect with clothing or makeup. — Seeking surgery, dermatological treatment or other medical treatment for appearance concerns, when doctors and/ or other people have said it's unnecessary. — Seeking reassurance about the 'flaw' or attempting to convince others of its ugliness. — Excessive grooming, e.g. combing hair or applying make-up. — Frequently touching the defect. — Picking the skin. — Measuring the disliked body part and excessively reading about it. — Exercising or dieting excessively. — Avoiding social situations in which the perceived defect might be exposed. — Feeling very anxious and self-conscious around other people because of the perceived defect. — For more advice on body dysmorphic disorder, call the Anxiety UK helpline on 08444 775774, or visit www.anxietyuk.org.uk 143

WHAT AN EXCUSE!

sign stuck on both front windows of the van he was driving restricted his view so much that he had to bend down to see if the road was clear enough for him to pull out. • In Weymouth, a mechanic wasn’t wearing his seatbelt as he was using a customer’s car and didn’t want to get the belt dirty. He received a £60 fine. • In Blandford, a van driver was stopped for using his mobile phone. He explained to officers that he had only just picked it up – but in reality he was seen using it going through a junction, changing hands and not seeing the blue lights until the siren was used. A check of the call log showed that he had been talking for 12 minutes. • A lady caught reading what appeared to be a map book as she drove through Blandford wanted to make it clear to officers that they were obviously mistaken as she said: “It wasn’t a map book I was reading, it was a magazine.” • A taxi driver in Bournemouth was caught driving at 49mph on a road with a 30mph speed limit. He offered the excuse: “My fare got up late so he’s in a hurry.”

The number of people killed or seriously injured on Dorset’s roads has dropped by 18% since the ‘no excuse’ project was launched by Dorset Road Safe. This reduction was found when comparing data from the latest 18 month period to the 18 month period before the ‘no excuse’ campaign was launched in Dorset in January 2010. In addition, the number of offences processed by the Dorset Road Safe ‘no excuse’ project team has fallen by 8% so far this year when compared to the same period in 2010 – despite the same level of enforcement resources being used. Seatbelt offences have continued to drop and now comprise 22% of tickets issued by traffic officers – down from 35% in the same period in 2010. As always, some of the bad or careless drivers stopped by officers offered up some interesting excuses for their actions: • Officers weren’t impressed when a van • A van driver in Weymouth was stopped for not having a proper view as the 'for sale' driver in Poole stated the reason he went

One speeding driver in Poole gave the excuse that he was trying to fix his noisy turbo by giving it a blast.

Road test by Nick Fletcher FiAt BrAVo Fiat is best known for its cute and trendy 500 model and its big-selling Punto, but its larger Bravo model is very under-appreciated in the UK. Competing in the VW Golf and Ford Focus sector, the Bravo is a roomy five door hatchback with a multitude of engine and trim options. Prices start at around £14,705 for the 1.4 entry level petrol model but most buyers will opt for a mid-range version starting at just over £16,000 and offering better performance and higher equipment levels. My test model was a 1.6 Mutlijet diesel which in Dynamic ECO specification pushes the price to £18,200. This offering features a 105 hp diesel engine giving a top speed of 116mph and a less-than-quick 0-60 mph time of 11.3 seconds. Combined fuel figure of 68.2 mpg – you reap the benefit of that slower acceleration. This version also features taller gear ratios - a six-speed gearbox is standard -and lowresistance tyres which also help boost the fuel economy. Most versions have anti-lock brakes, air con, remote locking, six airbags, power windows and door mirrors, CD player, and two-stage selectable electric steering. Dynamic level gets extra equipment which includes alloy wheels, powered rear windows, superior sound system, dual-zone air-conditioning and cruise control. 144

Visually the Bravo looks smart and sleek, though not that distinctive. The cabin is roomy even for five occupants, and the seating is comfortable. The layout for the driver is wellthought out and user-friendly, and the boot is more than adequate for normal needs. Underway, the engine proves quiet and very smooth, and more responsive than you expect given its on-paper slowish acceleration time. It delivers a pleasing drive on good roads, though the suspension is jittery if the surface is rough. And with the ECO gearing, you do have to work the stick quite often on cross-country roads. However, you do get the benefit of improved

A driver in Weymouth was left unimpressed after receiving a fixed penalty for stopping on the zig-zags at a crossing to do a scratch card. Further snippets from ‘no excuse’ can now be viewed at www.dorsetforyou.com/facebook

UK motorists are wasting

£337 million pounds on

fuel every year by driving with under-inflated tyres according to new research by Michelin.

fuel economy – I topped 50 mpg in mixed driving without undue effort. Overall, the Bravo stacks up as a strong prospect in its sector. Its neat, quite agile and on all but the worst surfaces, provides a rewarding, comfortable driving experience. It certainly deserves more attention and anyone checking it out will recognise the value for money, especially among the lower-range versions. FOR: Smooth economical driving, good level of standard equipment, comfortable interior. AGAINST: Limited interior stowage, door bins too slim. Fiat residuals less robust than some rivals.

LONGER DAYS AND FAMILY DISCOUNTS AT NEMO’S! Nemo’s Nursery and Pre-school of Forest Road Branksome, has just introduced two major changes to welcome in the Winter. Firstly, parents now have an extra half an hour at the end of each day to collect their children - the opening times have been extended from 0830-1730 to 0830-1800 every weekday! This has proved to be really popular with parents and helps those that have a little further to travel at the end of the working day! Well done Nemo’s - the second change has been to the rates for siblings. Proprietor Claire Hartwell has introduced a discount structure for children from the same family - each child will now pay just £40 per day as opposed to £49 per day! And as ever this is inclusive of mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks and lunches (home made at Nemo’s). See www.nemosnursery.com or call 01202 757563

Review

Black label events champions restaurant This weeks HOUSE magazine food review was at Black Label Events Champions Restaurant at The Dean Court Stadium. On a lovely bright autumnal day we arrived at Dean Court bathed in sunlight. Warm greetings at Reception led us to the second floor Restaurant. The friendly staff, black and white decor and striking sporting pictures adorning the walls made us feel very welcome. We were led to our table and offered a starter of Crab and Salmon tart with lemon dressed baby leaves, tasty fish in a pastry case. Elegantly complimented by the lemony and green pesto. After a suitable pause to take stock of AFC Bournemouth’s team and discuss their chances of winning with the other guests at our table we continued with delicious fillet of Sea Bass with Saffron potatoes and ratatouille and Roast sirloin of beef with caramelised shallots and red wine jus. The meat cooked to perfection dripping in the red wine jus. After hearing from two of AFCB’s top players who addressed the eager guests, to close we got stuck in to a British cheese board with chef’s chutney and fudges water biscuits including stilton, cheddar and grapes and apple pie with creme anglaise. How could we top this? Well by being shown to our seats to enjoy the game of course! By Rob Thomas

CLEARWATER - NEW LOOK - NEW LOCATION House Magazine were recently invited to the exciting new look and new office of Clearwater in Penn Hill. More than 175 people visited the new office in just a three hour period. The office is much larger than the previous location in order to cope with the demands of the thriving sales and lettings business. Richard Cross MD commented that besides the bright new spacious office, that will support the company’s natural growth in the area, it also reflects a modern contemporary design in line with many properties in the location. Also included in the company’s strategic developments are the inclusion of a ‘One Stop – Property Shop’ meaning that Clearwater will be concentrating its services, not only in the sales and letting markets but will also be concentrating in the architectural services sector, offering a wide range of fully qualified architect advice to its clients. Richard also commented on his team of superb staff who have been with the company since its inception eight years ago, guaranteeing Clearwater’s clients absolute consistency. Besides the new office , corporate image and service offering, we have also released a modern crisp new website. This can be viewed at www.clearwater.co
