BOURNEMOUTH’S YOUNGEST PROPERTY ENTREPRENEUR! At a very early age Simone Callegari found her passion for property. At the age of 21 she started her career in property development and when she was only 23 she opened the doors of her Bournemouth based letting agency to the public. 18 months later, “Rent In Bournemouth” is still going strong and she has outperformed her own expectations in the overcrowded and highly competitive Bournemouth property market. Her success have been driven by her fresh approach to customer service and her level of care and detail in managing landlord’s

properties as if they were part of her own portfolio. “With over 8 years’ experience as private landlords in Bournemouth, we fully understand what landlords need from a lettings agency and how best we can service their needs. We firmly believe that managing property needs a female touch to ensure they are maintained with sufficient care and attention. We work fiercely to search the market for quality tenants which is why our landlords benefited from 100% occupancy during 2011” says Simone. With their small office, “Rent In Bournemouth”

have kept their operations intentionally modest in order to keep overheads down and pass these savings on to tenants and landlords through their exceptionally competitive management and tenant fees as well as their popular contract free “find-atenant” service. With more than 5 years’ experience in property developing she continues her passion in this field by renovating and developing her landlord’s properties to ensure rental yields are maximized and that her tenants are offered luxury accommodation. “If you’re a Landlord who has a room, a flat or a house

please get in contact! We will have your property fully let in a matter of days. We don’t sign exclusive rental agreements so you have nothing to lose by trying us!” says Simone. Catering for tenants with a variety of different budgets, “Rent In Bournemouth” specialize in room-by-room rentals with a portfolio of single, double, en-suite rooms as wells as flats, houses and garages. We recommend landlords to visit Simone in her office or online at : www.rent-inbournemouth.com

Dorset-based ferry operator Condor Ferries has reported a fourfold increase in passenger bookings on its UK to France routes over the last week. With no end in sight to the industrial action affecting routes between the South Coast and Brittany, Condor has assisted hundreds of passengers over the last few days wishing to travel to destinations in France, without having to travel across the country to Dover.

and Marketing Director at Condor Ferries said: “We are operating a full schedule of daily sailings between Poole and St Malo over the coming weekend and are pleased to be able to help passengers who want to get to Brittany, with the minimum of inconvenience, driving and motorway tolls on the way to their destination. Condor Ferries offers frequent sailings from the UK to St Malo, via a connecting service in either Jersey or Guernsey – allowing passengers the opportunity to break their journey briefly and enjoy some time in the Islands, before continuing

Lounge about Known as the living room for good reason; whether you're relaxing after work, watching a movie or entertaining friends, lounges are a vital part of the home. We take a look at four key style trends.

CONTEMPORARY

8

There’s a reason lounges are known as the ‘living room’, because they’re exactly that. A lounge can really make a house a home - it’s a place to relax with loved ones, snuggle on the sofa after a long day’s work, or chat with friends, so it’s no wonder that it’s often the room people prioritise when it comes to decorating. “When picking a style for your lounge, quite often the answer lies in what fits best with what you have got already,” says Roger Mears, who set up Roger Mears Architects in 1980 (www.mears. co.uk). “If the building is in a period style, for example, a classic approach could be best. If it’s a country house, a traditional feel would sit naturally, rather than imposing these onto a new-build where these might look fake. It’s always good to go with the flow, and express a style with honesty.” There are occasions when rules can be bent, though. “Even in the most traditional of settings, there can be a feature that’s so outstanding (old floorboards, a period

staircase, decorative ceilings) that a monochrome, contemporary minimalist look could really highlight.” So treat the above only as a guide. As Roger says: “The final choice should be what resonates with your personality and lifestyle as well as your house, rather than a passing trend.”

The contemporary living room should be bright, ooze sophistication, maybe revel in current trends but more importantly provide comfort. “Create a lighter richness and contemporary feel by complementing sumptuous deep colours with clean white lines,” suggests Jeremy Garrish, buyer for Carpetright. A striking carpet or a bold wall feature will help to create a particular mood without being overbearing and makes for a family-friendly option as muddy feet are harder to spot. Another option is to use furniture and accessories in similar shades but different textures throughout the room, from sofas and rugs to cushions. “A statement sofa can provide a striking focal point to the room and it’s the perfect canvas from which to build a modern scheme,” suggests Emma Rackley, upholstery buyer for Furniture Village. Accompany the sofa with sleek furniture (curved edges are popular at the moment) such as coffee and lamp tables, in a contemporary metallic or glass finish. “And use solid, industrial elements that can also be used to create an urban feel while mixing materials such as glass, wood and metal to make the modern scheme feel instantly lived in,” says Emma.


LOUNGE INSPIRATION • A dark carpet can make a striking statement, and works well when off-set with contrasting furniture. Super Mansion House Plum carpet, £27.99 per square metre, Carpet right. • Interesting shapes add a fun touch to a contemporary lounge. Dali three-seat sofa, £1,859 (sale price £1,299); Tokyo coffee table £669 (sale price £499); Tokyo lamp table £539 (sale price, £399), all Furniture Village • Wire nest tea light holder, £9, Debenhams • Lsa Odile Cased Red Vase, £41, Red Candy • Nos Da Cushion Pink, £48.75, Rume • Purple Lamp With White Shade, £59.99, HomeSense • Ferm Living Mr & Mrs Cushions, £69.95, Cloudberry Living

This example from Ikea combines comfort with crisp contemporary lines. EKTORP two-seat sofa, £250; HEMNES coffee table, £115; LINDVED side table, £5; IVAR shelving, £174; ARSTID floor lamp, £32, all IKEA.

TRADITIONAL Think of the traditional lounge and heavy oak beams, log fires and encompassing leather sofas spring to mind. The good news is it’s not too difficult to create your very own cosy haven within the confines of your home. “Choosing the right combination of fabrics and colour schemes is key to achieving the right traditional look for your lounge,” says Emma. “Muted tones and soft hues combined with classic wooden furniture and classic side lamps will help to bring a traditional feel together.” Jeremy adds: “Or add rich, autumnal colours to your floor to create a cosy retreat you’ll never want to leave. Match with dark leather furniture and wooden accessories for a traditional feel.” Traditional upholstery designs with button back detailing, or a country-inspired fabric, can help complete the look if you’re opting for an old-school feel. Or for a more masculine focal point, include a weathered leather armchair, a dark, statement lampshade or paint one of the walls a dusky colour to evoke a sense of depth to the room.

LOUNGE INSPIRATION Rich, sumptuous colours are synonymous with the traditional look, and ageing brown leather furniture is timelessly stylish. Berwick carpet, from £29 per square metre, Cormar Carpets • A traditional lounge is all about homeliness and warmth. Country Spot Cereal Bowl, £1.69; Country Spot Cup and Saucer Set, £2.99; Vintage Wooden Horse, £8.99; Ruby fluted jug cream, £7.99; Tweed Cushion, £12.99; Classic Elegance Wooden Tea Light Holder, £4.99; Leather faced Tub Chair, £99.99; Westie Cushion, £12.99, all Dunelm Mill • Often the fireplace is a key feature in a traditional living room. Town & Country carpet, from £39 per square metre, Cormar Carpets • Similarly, an inviting corner chair, ideally lit for reading, works well. Kossett Heathers Calypso Carpet, £22.99 per square metre, Carpetright • Vintage Style Table Lamp, £139.50, Nordic House Ltd • Balmoral three drawer chest, £625 (sale price £437.50), Laura Ashley • Leather Arm Chair, £349.99, HomeSense • F&f Home Ceramic Cable Knit Effect Vase Cream £8.94,

CLASSIC The key to creating a classic living room is to keep it simple, so forget the chintz. “Classic living rooms draw on many historic design periods but steer clear of the overtly traditional and heavy, by mixing in modern and contemporary designs to create a carefully balanced whole,” says award-winning interior designer Katharine Pooley. Art Deco detailing, be it bevelled-edge mirrors, metal inlay joinery, polished marble or specialist geometric ironmongery, lends itself well to the clean lines of a classic interior. “Roccoco-esque precious stone and gilt detailing can also be added in small measure for richness,” says Katherine. “The wonderful thing about a ‘classical’ living room interior is that it is all encompassing. All that it asks is a certain lightness of hand to ensure a balanced space.” Carole Brown, director of marketing at Dunelm Mill, agrees: “A classic scheme is brought to life with boutique accessories so add crystal lighting, silk cushions, candles and vases of dried hydrangeas complete the look.” A key statement piece, such as the Chesterfield-style Langham sofa, is the best way to bring together a classically styled lounge. “Compliment the trademark deep button back details and elegant roll top arms with a beautiful soft fabric and a combination of neutral classic colourways, to evoke a calming traditional style,” says Emma. “Simple colour choices keep the look elegant and the use of glass accessories, simple shapes and soft lighting will all add to a sophisticated living area.”

LOUNGE INSPIRATION Classic furniture can also take on a sophisticated feel. Hennessey four-seater casual back sofa, £1.069 (sale price £779); Hennessey chair, £739 (sale price £549); Hennessey striped cushions (pair), £99 (sale price £69); Hennessey patterned cushions (pair), £109 (sale price £79), all Furniture Village • Clean lines and a stark, pale colour palette is also a popular example of classic decor. Oscar Floor Lamp, £90; White Leather Chesterfield sofa, £649; White Urban Coffee Table, £150, Tesco Direct (tesco.com) • Kelmscott Light Gold Framed Mirror with Bevelled Glass, £145, The Chandelier & Mirror Company Ltd • Midori table lamp, £60.25, The Chandelier & Mirror Company Ltd (www.chandeliersandmirrors.co.uk) • Curve Vase, £105, Beautiful Homes Direct

Every time I perch at my desk to pen this fortnightly drivel I feel that I should be holding forth on the pressing matters of the day like the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Leverson Enquiryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or the invasion of the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Duchess of Cambridgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; privacy by the Paparazzi. In truth I have all the intellectual vigour of a stoat thus my comfort zone sits squarely amongst all of lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little absurdities and peculiar behaviour which brings me neatly on to our annual ladâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coach trips to Brighton during the Sixties and Seventies. One excursion in particular suggests itself for the sheer variety of buffoonery which started off in a fairly understated fashion when the coach broke down in Dorking High Street. In a not entirely unexpected development 52 blokes descended on the local off licence and cleaned them out of Party Sevens, after a show of hands the middle of the roundabout just edged out the Evangelical Church car park as the ideal spot for a picnic. What a charming early morning tableau we must have presented to the genteel folk of Dorking as we queued in an orderly fashion amongst the profusion of floral displays to happily tear a gash in our drinks cans on the corner of the metal sign proclaiming the imminent arrival of the Dorking Strollers production of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Gone with the Windâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Arriving in Brighton much later than usual, and after checking the list we kept of establishments that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have our pictures behind the bar, we sprinted to the nearest one. There are many routes you can take to intoxication, this time we settled on â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Jacksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the game of unhinged conviviality where each person throws the dice with a letter â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Jâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; inscribed on just one side. First one to throw a â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; nominates the beverage, the second one pays for it and the third one gets to drink it. Many hours later those of our party that still had some control of their motor skills lurched into the Brighton sunshine and succumbed to the call of the sea. Actually what most of our valiant little group succumbed to was the sucking cloying pebbles which clutched at our crème de menthe frappe impaired legs and we fell where we stood. By sheer chance my friend Adrian and I wilted at the feet of two Swedish au pairs, and even allowing for the maxim that beauty is in the eye of the beer holder, they were drop dead gorgeous. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember why we decided to show off our athletic prowess by staging a wrestling match in front of them and anyway itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not really pertinent. Regrettably our opening sallies saw Adrian go for his favoured â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Camel Clutchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; whilst I opted for the high scoring but technically challenging â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Inverted Facelockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, as everyone knows these two manoeuvres are completely incompatible and I ended up face down in the stones. Unhappily I somehow contrived to insert what later turned out to be a perfectly formed oval pebble up my left nostril and in a good natured gesture from my opponent he struck up a repetitive percussive procedure on the back of my head in an ultimately successful attempt to dislodge the Brighton Corporationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property from my hooter. Astonishingly about three weeks later I received a letter from Sweden sent by someone called Astrid starting with â&#x20AC;&#x2122;I call you Dave because you did not tell me your nameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and enclosing some photographs of us on the beach mainly depicting Adrianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alcohol fuelled attempt at head trauma. Who says the English have no style when it comes to the art of seduction. We found out later that a bad run of luck on the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jacks game with the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Bulgarian Rose Liqueurâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rounds had taken out the coach driver and in a novel twist to the normal commercial arrangements between the operator and customer one of the lads drove the coach back to London and dropped the driver off home before parking the coach back at the fleet depot. I did not witness this for myself as buoyed from the earlier mating ritual on the beach I had wooed a girl in a disco by inviting her to admire my engorged nasal passage, offering to escort her home she unfortunately gave me the slip in the bus terminus. Having missed our coach my 7 hour journey home involved amongst other activities being given a lift at 1 am by a fragrant, impeccably dressed man with leather driving gloves who was very insistent that he put me up at his flat in Horsham, I declined. Until next time!

Five Minutes With... Kevin McCloud, 53, has a busy few weeks ahead, with a fresh series of Grand Designs, new Channel 4 project Man Made Home, and Grand Designs Live. The designer, writer and presenter talks about the show that made his name and why he welcomes the recession

TELL US ABOUT THE NEW RUN OF GRAND DESIGNS, OPENING WITH THE IRISH CASTLE? It was a really interesting project to follow. I was in two minds about it because we had a project that had very little in the way of drawings, not a clear vision, and it didn’t seem to be exemplary as a conservation project. But it was mad and out there, and the guy doing it is completely lovable, and the setting is utterly romantic and beautiful. It’s an extraordinary tale of connection to place and connection to this landscape and to memory. IT’S AN UNFINISHED PROJECT, SO AT LEAST THERE’S A CHANCE TO REVISIT IT? I don’t like to finish a series with unfinished projects. I think it cheats the viewers; I think people sitting through an hour of television want to see the resolution. They want to know that it’s been worth it. It’s just unfortunate. The channel has a slot, we have to fill that slot and sometimes the projects aren’t finished. ARE THERE ANY OUTLANDISH DESIGNS IN THIS RUN? Oh yeah. Do you know what? I welcome the recession. Not with open arms, but I welcome aspects of it inasmuch as money is no longer freely available. People have to be more cautious, but they are more inventive, and far more ingenious because they have to be. You used to have to write a cheque to get out of a hole. You can’t do that now. You have to think your way out of a hole, and that’s good for

32

the design, good for the project. I get a hunch this is the strongest series we’ve ever produced because of that. TELL US ABOUT SOME OF THE OTHER BUILDS AND RENOVATIONS? We’ve got a really exciting beautiful crystalline set of modernist boxes piled on top of each other. It’s a very minimal interior in concrete. We’ve got an amazing water tower in south London, 100ft high, the likes of which we’ve never been filmed before, and that is part conservation job and part new build. We’ve got two ladies living in Hertfordshire who place all their money and faith in a group of young designers with a building system using boxes of wood that has never been tried out on this scale before ever. It involves basically a router in a shipping container delivered to site, and the whole building is cut and mounted out of sheets of plywood; cassette boxes almost, and that was wonderful to witness. GRAND DESIGNS LIVE IS A HUGE INTERNATIONAL HIT. WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE LATEST SHOWS? We’re in Birmingham in October. Prior to that there’s one in Australia. It just goes around the world. I think there’s one in South Africa as well. I think we’re in 145 countries now. Where there are countries where the series is strong, we have an exhibition as well. HOW HAS THE LIVE SHOW CHANGED IN BIRMINGHAM OVER THE YEARS? We’re used to getting a different kind of visitor now; they are less interested

Kevin McClo ud in shopping and more thoughtful and more interested in projects. It’s much more like the show we have at Excel in London. So, for example, this year I’m doing slightly less on stage and I’m doing a bit more in the Ask The Expert room, where you turn up and can get a free consultation with architects and designers. That’s a wonderful part of what we do, Ask The Experts. No one else offers this where you turn up and get free advice, and everyone gives their time for free. The architects, the designers, the engineers, the surveyors, the mortgage company experts, all coming and giving advice on a oneto-one basis. The other thing we’re doing is launching a new initiative. It’s a retrofitting scheme called Grand Designs Future Living, and it will give people the opportunity to take advantage of the new deal coming out in the spring to retrofit their homes with all kinds of insulation and all kinds of clever technologies. I’ve also got a book coming out called The Best of Grand Designs. It’s celebrating the fact that we hit our 100th episode this autumn. TELL US ABOUT YOUR OTHER UPCOMING SERIES, MAN MADE HOME? That was partly inspired by reading Roger Deakin’s book about the natural world, but also it was about trying to provide myself with a little bolt hole for some low impact, low carbon living for the weekend. FINALLY, WOULD YOU EVER LIKE TO DO A MOVIE VERSION OF GRAND DESIGNS, DISCUSSING PROJECTS SUCH

AS JAMES BOND MOVIES AND THE HARRY POTTER FILMS? What a great idea! We could do the Kubrick sets of 2001; ancient Rome in Gladiator; Hitchcock’s settings - there’s that wonderful 1950s architecture in North By Northwest, and Portmeirion in The Prisoner. I’ll do it as long as you don’t want to charge me a royalty (laughs). Kevin McCloud presents the new run of Grand Designs, which can be seen on Wednesday nights on Channel 4, and is repeated on 4seven.


The outdoor living space we created for Mr & Mrs Hunt in Ferndown, Dorset

W E M AK E THE GARDEN A SPACE FOR LIVING (N O T FO R DIG GIN G)

At Kingspace, we have what it takes to change the way you live. A visit to us will open your eyes to the many different possibilities a garden offers for outdoor living all year round. There’s really no reason anymore why you should be stuck inside merely because it’s wet or cold outside. Not when you could be cosily ensconced in a glassroom.

All submerged in the warm, bubbling water of a hot tub. Or cooking a meal for friends in one of our barbecue lodges. These are just some of the ways you can transform the garden into an extension of your home. And we can make it happen. Kingspace provides expert advice along with the building know-how to manage a whole project from start to finish.

Come and see our show space. Your life may never be quite the same again.

DIY EXPERT

THIS WEEK:

Get those jobs done with a little help from ‘Big Al’ our DIY expert. This week: How to make your home more environmentally friendly.

THE HEAT IS ON With winter on the horizon, making your home’s central heating system as energy efficient as possible should be a priority. Replacing an old G-rated boiler (the least energy efficient) with a super-efficient A-rated (condensing) boiler is expensive (typically £2,000 upwards), but could save you around £300 a year on running costs, according to the Energy Saving Trust. This is based on replacing the boiler and heating controls in a three-bed semi with gas central heating. If your home’s windows aren’t double or triple glazed (or have secondary glazing), the heating will be disappearing out of them. Again, replacing the windows is an expensive business, typically costing several thousand pounds, but it is worth doing if you can afford to, and you don’t have to go for period imperfect windows - double-glazed sashes offer the best of both worlds, for example. With listed buildings and homes on ‘designated land’, such as conservation areas, there are stricter rules about replacement windows (and doors), so ask your local council. To make further savings on your energy bills, you may want to consider fitting energy-efficient glazing, such as Planitherm. This glass has a special coating that helps to retain radiated heat in the room and also captures the sun’s energy to heat the room further. Your home’s external walls are another big area of heat loss. Houses built from 1920 onwards usually have cavity walls and these can be injected with insulation (a job for the pros) to keep the heat in and cold out. Solid walls let through twice

as much heat as cavity walls, but insulating them isn’t as straightforward - it can be done internally or externally. Measures like these that make your home more energy efficient go a long way, but you can go further down the eco route. Have you considered generating your own electricity? This is typically done with a wind turbine or solar panels (a different type of solar panels can be used to heat your home’s water). Domestic wind turbines only work well in certain locations, so solar panels are the best bet for many of us. If you’re worried about the cost (usually many thousands of pounds) of having solar panels fitted, there are ways to cushion the financial blow, such as special loans and ‘rent a roof’ schemes. With the latter, you get the solar panels free of charge, but you have to give the company that provides and installs them the income you receive from the Government’s Feed-In Tariffs scheme. This scheme pays you for both the electricity you generate and use at home and any surplus you supply to the national grid. Another Government scheme (although it isn’t up and running for homeowners yet) is the Renewable Heat Incentive, which is expected to financially reward people who use renewable heat technologies at home. This should apply to heat pumps, which extract warmth from the air, ground or a water source and use it to heat the home. Then there’s the Government’s Green Deal, which may provide finance for energy-efficient home

improvements such as insulation and double glazing. Go to www.decc.gov.uk to find out more. Big eco home improvements are often most cost-effective as part of a major renovation or build, rather than being retrofitted. With large projects, the world’s your oyster in terms of making your home greener and cleaner. You could, for example, install a water-saving system for reusing ‘grey’ water, which includes used water from showers, baths and the washing machine. Systems like this aren’t something most of will be able to retrofit to our homes, but they are the future.

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK BOSCH PPR 250 POWER PAINT ROLLER FROM £123.90 www.amazon.co.uk The new Bosch PPR 250 power paint roller (£123.90, www.amazon.co.uk) makes painting a room quick and easy and it’s a lot less messy than a conventional roller, as

it doesn’t splatter. Best of all, unlike some power rollers, you can use it with any sort of emulsion. The power unit has two tubes - a short one that clips on to the side of the tin and dips into the paint and a really long one that’s attached to the roller, which you can use with or without the extension pole. Once it’s hooked up and switched on, you simply press the trigger, wait for the paint to reach the roller, and away you go - coverage is excellent.

Take a leaf from the style books Autumn’s renowned for its spectacular foliage and this season it’s a show that is being replicated in our homes. Designers have created a harvest of designs which will add their beauty to rooms long after the season ends. Autumn’s renowned for its spectacular foliage and this season there’s a harvest of decor designs which will add their beauty to rooms - long after the season ends. “The trend for botanical designs has resulted in a beautiful array of prints and patterns featuring leaves and foliage,” says Claire Vallis, design director for fabrics and wallcoverings specialist, Harlequin. “They range from dramatic, large-scale branches and woodland forests, through to ditsy, dainty leaves. These can be realistic depictions, so you feel you are walking though a forest or scrunching through fallen leaves, or more painterly interpretations with sweeping brushstrokes and vivid hues. “But a common theme prevails, of a love of nature and a desire to bring the freedom and freshness of the great outdoors into the home.” Don’t be afraid to experiment with pattern and scale, she advises, as even the most over-sized design can be accommodated, by pairing it with a plain or textured finish in the rest of the room. Falling leaves may mean extra work in the garden, but if you celebrate their form and rich colour indoors they’ll bring rooms to life, and conjure an unbe-leafably delightful winter sanctuary.

GOLDEN HARVEST “Designers have taken the countryside to their heart,” says Jacqueline Duncan, principal and founder of London’s Inchbald School of Design. “Tree and leaf motifs are a key feature in pattern and print and range from the traditional and botanically accurate to interpretations which fully exploit innovative digital techniques, and give a fresh, chic effect. “This look is perfectly in tune with our desire for a natural, organic approach to interiors. “Woodland designs are particularly well complemented by earthy palettes, such as cream, charcoal and mushroom, and can be made luxurious with shades of gold. “It can even work well with stronger tones of damson and mustard through to fashionable strong blues.”

BRING ON THE BLUES

48

With a Momentum Wallpaper in Leaf design, £54 a roll, from Harlequin. Continue the colour theme with a bold Painted Leaf bedding set, from £32 for a double duvet set and £24 for a single set, from Bhs.


TURN OVER A NEW LEAF Little Greene’s Oriental Papers collection features stunning designs, including the Trellis Bamboo wallpaper in copper, £54.75 a roll. Complement it with gilded accessories, such as a Liliana table lamp, £80, from John Lewis. Its stem base is adorned with gold leaves. A Potentilla cushion with foliage print, £59, from Clarissa Hulse, makes another great addition. 49


NATURAL WOODLAND

EVERGREEN ELEGANCE

The great outdoors has an abundance of textures and tones, many of which make great additions to homes and have inspired designers since the dawn of time. Natural materials, from wood to stone, bring interest and variety into rooms, and are perfectly complemented by bold, graphic motifs of leaves in bright shades for a modern, rustic look, where texture and pared-back design triumph. “Cosy seasonal tones and a mix of traditional British style work well with a playful nature-inspired collection in one of our key trends - Woodland,” says Gillian Anderson, trading director at Heal’s. “Our main theme, Autumn, features rustic wooden furniture and home accessories inspired by fallen leaves, in a palette of rustic red and orange hues with highlights of green encapsulating a warm and homely mood.” Turn over a new leaf: For a subtle woodland backdrop, Nottingham wallpaper, £20 a roll, from Graham & Brown, gives a 3D illusion of forest depth. Gather foliage features from the MissPring woodland range at Heal’s: Discovers Woodland drum lampshade, £115, and Discovers Woodland Sunflower rug, £695. Leaves decorate the retro, up-cycled Ash Storm chest of drawers, £895, by furniture designer Lucy Turner.

Delicate foliage, paired with a fresh green and crisp white palette, creates a scheme which truly, yet gracefully, brings nature indoors. This style is well suited to kitchen or dining areas. “Forest and leaf prints are a great way to introduce a relaxed organic effect in any room,” says Donna Riley, brand manager at wallpaper specialists Graham & Brown. “They create an illusion of soft, natural depth, while a shimmering landscape of beckoning trees will produce a delicate ethereal finish.” Turn over a new leaf: Angel Ferns wallpaper, £32 per roll, from Sanderson Home, is classic and crisp in white and green. Alternatively, a Leaf sketch printed panel, from £79 (125cm x 227cm), from Digetex, would instantly bring nature indoors. Make a statement with a foliage embellished Little Lady chair upholstered in Morris & Co Orchard Bayleaf and Rose, from £1,126, Sofa Workshop. Echo the theme in accessories, with Made by Hand’s foliage decorated Twine Table Runner in black, £55, or green and black, £79. Add bright touches to the dining table with Heal’s Discovers Woodland Dinnerware by MissPrint, from £5-£20

BRANCHING OUT Simple black and white decor enhances the beautiful silhouettes of winter woodland for a serene, modern interior. This look can be enlivened and warmed with rich colour in accessories. Bold feature wallpapers can be used on one wall, or smaller patterns can be used on all four, says Claire Vallis at fabrics and wallcovering designers Harlequin and Scion. “A leaf print sofa can act as a gorgeous focal point to a room when teamed with plainer curtains, or you could use a blind in a foliage print and combine it with textured curtains,” she suggests. “The same applies to colours - don’t shy away from the vibrant shades as they can make a real statement, but do complement them with softer, toning shades. “This will heighten their effect as well as keep the scheme easy to live with.” Turn over a new leaf: A monochrome Leaf mural from the Conran Fabrics Archive collection, from £70 per square metre, Conran Shop (also available to order as print or canvas through www.surfaceview.co.uk). Just as striking, but more traditional, is a Pines design wallpaper featuring a forest of trees, £54.75 a roll, Little Greene. A Barletta Love Seat, covered in Fern chenille, which has a strong graphite leaf design, £1,149, Marks & Spencer, would be a perfect focal point. Alternatively, simply dress up a chair with a photoprint Pine Forest cushion, £80, Nordic Elements, or liven up corners with a quirky black tree-shaped hat stand, £20, Tiger Stores. 50

THE MERDE FACTOR

TELEGRAPH AVENUE

Paul West (or ‘Poll Wess’ as his colleagues insist on calling him) is trying his best to survive as an Englishman in Paris. His patience is put to the test, however, by those seemingly intent on making his life a misery - former boss Jean-Marie, who wants to sell the English tea shop they co-own, ex-girlfriend Alexa, whose presence is causing ructions between Paul and his new girlfriend, and a cantankerous neighbour, whose loud Gallic swearing threatens to disrupt his new business venture. Some scenarios are so cringeworthy you suspect they may just have happened in real life. Paul, the outsider in a deeply patriotic nation, is more than believable with his candour and humour. His unintentionally hilarious sidekick Jake, with his unique X-rated poetry, also provides plenty of laughs. This latest instalment in Stephen Clarke’s series based on Paul’s adventures is like a pain au chocolat by the Seine - light, sweet and just a little bit naughty.

Since winning the Pulitzer prize with his stunning The Amazing Adventures Of Kavalier & Clay, Michael Chabon has been on a mission to introduce literary fiction readers to the delights of other genres - until now. Archy Stallings is the co-owner of a struggling Oakland record shop. He’s expecting his first child with wife Gwen, but his long-lost son from a previous relationship has just turned up in the neighbourhood - as has Archy’s own estranged dad, faded blaxploitation icon Luther. As if this weren’t worry enough, a megastore specialising in used vinyl is about to open nearby. Chabon’s style is still as fluent, evocative and rich with allusion as ever, and some sections, especially a parrot’s eye view of the neighbourhood, are stunning. But the plot feels implausible in places and far too neat elsewhere, and beyond that, there’s a sense (absent from previous Chabon novels) that a lot of other authors could have handled this material.

JOHN SATURNALL’S FEAST

THE CUTTING SEASON

John Saturnall’s Feast by Lawrence Norfolk is published in hardback by Bloomsbury, priced £16.99. Available now.

The Cutting Season by Attica Locke is published in hardback by Serpent’s Tail, priced £14.99. Available now

Review by Robert Dex It is more than 20 years since Lawrence Norfolk’s debut novel, Lempriere’s Dictionary, hit the best-seller lists and saw the author hailed as one of literature’s bright, young things. His latest novel combines a trademark historical setting, a complex plot and an exuberant embrace of English guaranteed to introduce the reader to a few unfamiliar words along the way.

Orange prize-nominated author Attica Locke follows up her debut novel, Black Water Rising, with this suspenseful murder mystery. Set in south Louisiana, the story centres around Belle Vie - a plantation managed by Caren Gray. Caren’s own history is deeply connected with Belle Vie - she lives there with her daughter, her ancestors worked the land as slaves and her mother cooked in the kitchen - so her feelings about the plantation are complicated to say the least.

The story of a young boy chased from his home by superstitious villagers in 17th century England travels from the kitchens of a local manor house to the battlefields of the Civil War as John Saturnall attempts to create a long-forgotten feast which has been handed down the generations in his family. Norfolk recreates the sights, smells and sounds of another world in vivid, atmospheric detail, littering the book with evocative recipes of exotic spices to produce a fictional feast fit for a king.

When a dead girl’s body is discovered near the sugar cane fields and a staff member suddenly goes missing, shattering revelations about Belle Vie surface that Caren would rather not have to contemplate. Steeped in generational history, Locke successfully manages to intertwine modern-day America with the past, while providing a thrilling story full of believable characters and a fascinating commentary on politics, race, family and love.

THE NIGHTMARE

THE SPINDLERS

The Nightmare by Lars Kepler is published in hardback by Blue Door, priced £14.99. Available now.

The Spindlers by Lauren Oliver is published in hardback by Hodder & Stoughton, priced £10.99. Available now.

Review by Philip Robinson

Review by Julie Cheng

Swedish husband and wife writing duo Lars Kepler return to the forefront of crime thriller fiction with The Nightmare, their follow-up to the acclaimed novel The Hypnotist. Detective Inspector Joona Linna, the protagonist from the first book, returns to the fray when the body of a young lady is discovered aboard a pleasure boat. The strange thing is she had been drowned while on the boat with no signs of water anywhere on the body or clothes, however this isn’t the only crime about to be committed.

American author Lauren Oliver returns with a fantasy tale about a young girl’s mission to save her young brother from sinister creatures. Liza wakes to find her brother Patrick is an imposter. He looks and talks like Patrick but there is something about him that makes Liza suspicious. She soon realises that her brother’s soul has been captured by the Spindlers, spider-like creatures who live underground.

As the case unfolds, Linna has to call upon his very best policing skills to track a killer for whom death is not the end. With each turn of the page, you are hooked to find out what clue will turn up next and how it fits into this complex puzzle. But more importantly, why this is happening in the first place.

Determined to rescue her brother, Liza starts her journey in the basement of her house armed with a broomstick. Following the scratching noises, she finds a concealed hole behind a narrow bookcase. As Liza makes her way through the passageway, she falls into darkness and lands on top of Mirabelle, a large rat with make-up and a skirt made out of newspaper. Wary of Mirabelle and unsure where to start, Liza is forced to follow Mirabelle deeper underground in the hope of finding her brother. This fun, creepy story is full of mystery and adventure.

WHY FRENCH CHILDREN DON’T TALK BACK

150 Years Of Modern Art In The Blink Of An Eye by Will Gompertz is published by Viking, priced £20. Available now.

Why French Children Don’t Talk Back by Catherine Crawford is published by John Murray, priced £14.99. Available now.

Review by Abi Jackson

Review by Zahra Saeed

Do you enjoy mooching around art galleries but wish you ‘understood’ it all a bit more? Ever gawped at a piece of modern art, only to conclude, frustrated, that you just don’t ‘get it’? As the BBC’s art editor, and former Tate Gallery director for seven years, Will Gompertz certainly doesn’t have this problem - but he’s aware that thousands of gallery visitors do. This book aims to change that, and first and foremost, Gompertz is keen to point out that you don’t need to be intimidated by modern art, as it’s often a lot more simple that you might think. Not all modern art is weird, abstract and indecipherable (think Monet, for instance), though some of it might at first appear so. Then there are those pieces that aren’t really works of art, in the traditional sense, but statements. Gompertz distinguishes between the two and takes the reader through the series of isms (impressionism, cubism, expressionism) which make up modern art. In clear, easy-to-follow language, he explains what each really means, putting them into historical and social context. It’s an immensely enjoyable, interesting read for novice art-lovers and long-time gallery-goers alike. By the end of the book, you won’t be an expert but you’ll certainly ‘get’ modern art a lot more, and be free to enjoy it without worrying that you don’t.

First there was the Tiger Mother, describing the strict Chinese way of parenting, and now comes Catherine Crawford’s latest book, extolling the virtues of the rearing method a la Francais. Why French Children Don’t Talk Back is New Yorker Crawford’s account of how she tried to ‘Frenchify’ the raising of her two daughters. The idea is born after a dinner party with some French friends, whose children Crawford realises are far better behaved than her own American offspring.

9/10

From stopping separate meals for the kids and instilling in them a sense of fashion (Crawford suggesting but thankfully not going as far as number coding her children’s clothes) to praising them less, Crawford soon sees positive changes in her enfants terribles. Crawford’s guide is wittily written and peppered with amusing anecdotes gleaned from her own social circle and their little darlings. It never dictates but merely suggests, and provides a persuasive alternative to the increasingly child-centric British way of raising kids.

ASK THE PROPERTY EXPERT

Q A

SHARRON CANNING MOVE ON RENTALS

My tenant, whose tenancy started in January this year has been persistently late in paying his rent. We have been sympathetic towards his circumstances changing but we now find ourselves in a position where he owes rent for all of July and all of August. He is currently in a tenancy for twelve months and we are really worried that this may continue until the end. Please can you advise us on what we can do to rectify the situation? This is one of the most common questions I get asked. Nationally rent arrears rose by 55% last year and it is really important for landlords to keep on top of this. I will assume you have been in contact with the tenant in trying to obtain the rent for July and August and still find yourselves in this situation. It is in my experience that once a tenant is two months in arrears, they find it incredibly difficult to catch up and it then often spirals out of control. Because the tenant is now more than eight weeks in arrears you can serve a Section 8 notice informing him he is in breach of his contract. This requires a minimum of 14 days’ notice and has the advantage that you can claim both the property and the rent from the court hearing. If the tenant refuses to leave the property then you can go to court on this before the Tenancy expires. As with completing all court forms it is vital the information given is accurate and filled in, in a certain way. You will also need proof that you have served the Notice on the tenant. I would strongly advise you seeking legal assistance in this by either a Solicitor or reputable agent. You can follow us on our blog through out website www.moveonrentals.com, on twitter and now Facebook. If you would like to receive our free newsletter with up to date advice on the Industry news and legislations then please email us on info@ moveonrentals.com and ask to be added.

Income Tax on Rental Letting property in the UK is treated as a business transaction under the eyes of the tax office, even you have only one property that you currently let. How you are taxed on the income is dependant on what terms the property is let on. For the majority of our landlords, the exception being the odd few, their tenants are on Assured Shorthold Tenancies for a minimum of 6 months. Whether you let one or several properties you will be taxed on the overall net profit. You can work this out by: • Adding together all your rental income • Adding together all you allowable expenses • Taking all the allowable expenses away from the income By working out the net profit as an accumulation between all properties, it mean’s that you can offset a loss from one property against another. The net profit after this point will count as part of the taxable income. Properties that are let to people to live in are always

counted as residential investment lettings, and differ in tax from letting a room or furnished holiday lets. Even if you rent out your home to move away from the area or upsize, the taxable income will still apply, as it would to landlords with portfolios of property. As part of running this ‘business’ you are allowed certain deductibles: • Letting agent’s fees • Legal fees for lets of a year or less, or renewing a lease of 50 years and under • Accountants fees • Insurance for the building and/or contents • Interest on property loans • Maintenance (Not improvements) • Utility bills covered by you as the landlord • Ground rent and service charges • Council tax • Cleaning and Gardening • Phone calls and advertising • You can claim a ‘wear and tear’ allowance. The allowance is 10 per cent of the ‘net rent’

You’ll have to keep records of your property letting business for six years after the tax year they’re for. You need them to back up the figures you put on your tax return. Your records should include details of: • All the rent you receive and the dates when you let out the property • Any income from services provided to tenants • Your business expenses • Rent books, receipts, invoices and bank statements As agents, our managed portfolio allows landlord’s access to pre completed tax return forms detailing the amount of rent collected, the expenditure incurred as the result of using an agent, the total paid out in maintenance and the final income received minus the maintenance.

OF FORDINGBRIDGE

Boscombe’s Sovereign Shopping Centre is hosting an event in conjunction with Dorset Police in an effort to raise awareness and help reduce car crime in the local area. The informal and interactive event will feature a vehicle on display within the Sovereign Centre, which will include valuable items that members of the public will be asked to spot and identify. The purpose of the event is to educate the public about vehicle crime following an increase in the number of car thefts earlier this year in the Boscombe and Poole area. Motorists are being reminded to keep their vehicles securely locked and to avoid leaving valuables in their cars. The number of thefts from vehicles in Poole between 1st April and 31st July increased from 248 last year to 314 this year. A total of 140 thefts from vehicles took place in Poole last month alone. The

number of these offences in Boscombe increased from 60 between 1st April and 31st July last year to 102 during the same period this year. The team from Dorset Police will be at the Sovereign Centre on Saturday 29th September between 10am and 4pm. The event is being hosted ahead of a new series of regular events being held at the Sovereign Centre, aimed at all ages of the community. The events include a monthly Band Day, Sovereign Senior’s Day and Family Day. Ray McGlynn, Sovereign Shopping Centre Manager, said: “We are very excited about the new program of events for the local community and visitors to the area to enjoy. We are looking forward to bringing all ages of the community together and having lots of fun, while raising awareness of particular issues and providing advice.”

TREND ALERT Owner of Chic Beauty Salon & Chic Academy, Sophie Tamagna talks about Getting to grips with this season’s hottest trend

DRAMATIC EYES

It was movie magic that launched a famous beauty trend. In 1916, legendary movie director, D.W. Griffith wanted Seena Owen, the leading lady of his epic, “Intolerance”, to have glamorous lashes so long they would gracefully touch her cheeks when she fluttered her eyelashes or looked down thoughtfully. A wig maker wove human hair through fine gauze and gummed them to Owen’s eyelids creating the very first set of false eyelashes. Needless to say, women wanted the same movie star lashes and a trend was born. Do you ever find that no matter how much eye makeup you wear, it looks like you’re going for the no-makeup makeup look in every photo? Do you want to step it up this season and go for a more dramatic look? Well, wearing false eyelashes will certainly make you stand out at any shindig and help you look like you actually have makeup on in photographs. Having semi-traumatic, false-eyelash-application flash backs? Stay with me … OK, so you’ve had some bad experiences applying false eyelashes or bought a pair, but never had the patience or balls to try them out. Or perhaps you’ve had them done professionally by a makeup artist, but assumed that you could never recreate that fabulous false eyelash magic on your own. Au contraire … all you need is this quick lashes tutorial and you’ll quickly be rocking long, sexy lashes a la Kim Kardashian in no time. Heck, you might even be mistaken for one of the Dash sisters.

I suggest doing all your other eye makeup first and saving lashes for last. So apply eye shadow, curl your (real) lashes and apply mascara before reaching for the false lashes. OK, this is the critical part, you know, actually putting the lashes on. Just follow these steps: Strip lashes: 1. Before using the glue, apply the lashes to your lids to see how they fit. The strips should be the same length as your natural lash line. 2. Hold out your false lash strip and apply a thin line of glue at the base. 3. Use your fingers or tweezers/applicator to press the lashes into the base of your lash line.

STEP 3: LEARN HOW TO APPLY INDIVIDUAL LASHES

Now you’ve got the basics, here are a few expert tips. 1. Use a cotton bud to blot your eyes if they start watering. If you know your eyes will water a lot, try cutting the lashes into sections (if working with strip lashes) and apply them individually. There will be less tension on your eyelids, which will help with irritation and tears. 2. Use glue that starts out white and dries clear instead of glue that dries dark.

STEP 1: GATHER YOUR SUPPLIES

Luckily, you don’t need much (and often you can get it all in one package), but consider this your false lash shopping list: 1. False eyelashes 2. Glue 3. Tweezers or an applicator tool 4. Cotton buds or tissue to wipe up any watery eyes

STEP 2: PREP

My advice: “Coffee or alcohol before applying your lashes is not a good idea. No shaky fingers, please.” Also want to take everything out of the packaging and lay it out where you can easily grab it. Also,

AVOID THESE FALSE LASH PITFALLS Even if you follow my little step-by-step you still might run into some problems. Tips for evading them: 1. You want your lashes on each eye to start and end at the same point on your lash line. Remember that you can trim lashes if they’re too big for your eyes. 2. Don’t let your lashes droop, or you’ll have the Paris Hilton, lazy-eye action going on. Curling them will help. 3. Do not sleep in your false lashes; it’s bad for your eyes and real lashes.

a Beautiful new career CouRses inClude

CHOOSE THE RIGHT LASHES FOR YOU Choosing the right lashes from the thousands out there can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Just follow these guidelines. 1. If you’re going for a smoky eye, then you need a dark, dramatic set of lashes. 2. If you want to open up your eyes or have wideset eyes, look for lashes that are longer in the centre. 3. If you have close-set eyes, look for lashes that are longer at the outer corners to make the distance look wider. ARDELL lashes are ultra-light, easy to apply and easy to remove.

SEMI PERMANENT EYELASH REVIEW On arrival to CHIC I was greeted with welcoming staff in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere, my appointment was on time and they were ready on my arrival, a rare commodity for a salon sometimes! I was introduced to the beautician who was going to do my treatment and she went through the procedure first so I knew what to expect. The treatment room was spacious and therapeutic, with a relaxing private atmosphere. I was extremely happy with the treatment I received, also with the care and perfection of the beautician, as every lash was delicately glued on one by one and was considerately placed. The eyelash extensions are of high quality with good volume, and have a flawless natural finish. After the treatment I was asked if I was happy with the lashes and if there were any changes I would like to make but they were perfect with no signs of glue whatsoever. The lashes last up to four weeks and you are able to use eyeliner, mascara isn’t necessary but this is personal preference. I would recommend CHIC Beauty Salon to anyone would wants good quality treatments to a professional standard. If you want long natural looking eye lashes go to CHIC.

DO-IT-YOURSELF

KITCHEN RAID WANT FASTER WEIGHT LOSS? Then do a self-guided kitchen raid. If your kitchen is stocked with the makings for healthy meals and snacks you’ll easily stay on track, even when those late-night cravings strike. So what should you keep on hand and what should be banned? Use this self-guided kitchen raid to help you sort out the good from the fattening. Go ahead, grab a big box, print out the list below, and then head to the kitchen. When you’re done, take that box straight to the nearest food bank.

YOUR REFRIGERATOR:

Let’s start with the fridge, which is essentially the heart of your kitchen. Donate this: • Beverages with high fructose • fizzy drinks including coke and diet coke • Drinking calories is one of the quickest ways to gain weight. • Beverages with HFCS or sugar in the ingredients. Replace with: • Water. Keep plenty of cold water on hand for proper hydration. • Also coconut water is good - has some natural sugars, so not too much!!

TOP TIP Open up dialogue with your family members about the healthy changes that you’re making, and get everyone in on it. The quickest and most permanent weight loss comes as a result of healthy eating and consistent, challenging workouts.

132

Donate this: • Cheap meats. If it is a cheap cut from a farmed animal then the fat won’t be any good

LOW CARB SPAGHETTI AND MEATBALLS

Replace with: • Bio-Dynamic/Organic meats. • Fillet steak • Chicken breast • Lean ground turkey • White fish – there are numerous choices when it comes to good quality meats.

Here’s what you need...

Donate this: • Sugar-filled cereal. • Sugar-filled cereal is basically another form of junk food, and will only add inches to your waist. Replace with: • Home Made Almond and Banana pancakes. Donate this: • Fruit-flavored yogurt. Replace with: • Greek yogurt or full fat regular yoghurt. • Scoop of cottage cheese with chopped fruit on top. • Pantry

SERVINGS: 12

2 pounds lean, organic, grass-fed ground beef 1 pound lean, sweet turkey sausage 4 celery stalks, diced 1 yellow onion, diced Sauce 3 carrots, diced 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes 3 omega-3, eggs 1 can tomato paste 1/2 cup almond meal splash of white wine 2 Tablespoons dried oregano 2 cups fresh basil, chopped 1 teaspoon garlic powder 6 garlic cloves, chopped dash of salt and pepper dash of salt and pepper Preheat oven to 375 degrees F, Wash spaghetti squash, and bake for 1 hour, place meatball ingredients into a large bowl and mix with your hands.

OR Cook with stovetop: Place meatballs in a large pot. Cover with sauce and cook, covered, over low heat for 2-3 hours.

Donate this: • Packaged Sweets. • Biscuits, cookies and cakes and candies Replace with: • Fresh berries. It’s a great idea to raid your kitchen every couple of months as a way of keeping yourself on track.

If you have very low body fat and pursue endurance cardio events wild rice (not technically a grain) and sweet potato are your best bet!

South Coast Dental Specialists

Specialists in smile creation

“Your teeth fixed in a day” At South Coast Dental Specialists we are now able to secure fixed teeth onto implants placed into your jawbone all within 3-4 hours from start to finish. Whether you have a few remaining teeth and are struggling with your partial dentures or indeed in you have full dentures and find them difficult, we can help you have fixed teeth in one day. The technique can also be applied to both the upper and lower jaws, and can even be carried out in both jaws in the same day. In addition the procedure is painless and can be carried out under sedation for our more nervous patients, and post operative discomfort is kept to a minimum with simple painkillers. Over the last year or so we have worked closely with the experienced Waters Edge ceramics to develop predictable and accurate techniques which are proving a huge hit with the patients we are providing

this treatment for. After a short period of consultation, we plan your treatment very carefully and give you a written estimate of charges. Assuming all goes well with the consultation and examination process (usually just two short visits ) we then book you in for implant placement and at the same time our technician is on hand to construct your new teeth. The teeth provided on day one we term as provisional teeth, as soft tissue changes and technical constraints prevent us from securing on your final teeth from day one. However, only 2 or 3 short painless visits are required 4 months after your initial “teeth in a day“ appointment, for us to construct your final definitive teeth. Here are some before and after photographs of patients who have had this treatment.

SUBARU OUTBACK

The latest news on all things motoring By Nick Fletcher

SLIPPERY WHEN WET With Autumn rain making roads increasingly slippery driver training specialist IAM Drive & Survive offers these safety tips: As it gets further into autumn and the temperature drops, clear your windscreens of condensation or ice before setting off. Always give yourself extra time to ensure you can see though your windows clearly before starting your journey. A patch of wet leaves can be as dangerous as hitting standing water. Take care and reduce your speed before driving onto them. As the days get shorter, remember to turn on your headlights before sunset and keep them on for an hour after sunrise so that it’s easier for drivers to see you in twilight. Autumn can take its toll on car batteries, keep the top of the battery clean and dry and make sure the terminals are tight and free

from corrosion. If a battery is more than three years old, check it now; you might save yourself many a frustrating start to a morning. Make sure your wiper blades are in good condition. If they squeak as they wipe, they probably need replacing, and always make sure they are turned off before starting the ignition to save the blades and the risk of a blown motor fuse when the first frost hits.

"REMEMBER THAT LEAVES CAN BE SLIPPERY, ESPECIALLY WHEN WET SO AVOID HARD ACCELERATION"

ASTON MARTIN DB9 REVISED

136

Aston Martin has just revealed details of the latest major enhancements to its iconic Sports GT car, DB9. The styling changes see DB9 adopt "an even more lithe, fluid and pure form" reminiscent of the outgoing Aston Martin Virage which ceases production with immediate effect. Taking a classic Aston Martin GT silhouette as its base, the new DB9 adds a more pronounced rear boot ‘flip’ to further enhance the aerodynamic performance of the car. Available from launch in either Coupe or Volante body styles, prices start from £131,995. A large lower front grille feeds air into the standard Carbon Ceramic Braking system, while the front splitter also serves to visually widen the car. For those DB9 buyers in search of an even more sporty appearance there is now a carbon fibre front splitter available as part of the exterior Carbon Pack. DB9 buyers seeking an even more sporting ambience inside might be tempted by an additional interior option – Aston Martin’s lightweight seats. These are available when the 2+0 seating option is selected and use a state-of-the-art carbon fibre and Kevlar® composite structure. When specified, the seats save 17kg per car as well as offering occupants more support at the shoulders. This improves comfort and reduces stress on the back during long stints of focused dynamic driving in particular. Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer Dr Ulrich Bez said: “I am very excited to be unveiling the new DB9 now. My team here at Gaydon has been working hard for many months to improve and update key aspects of this superb Sports GT – the mainstay of our sports car range – and I believe the results to be exceptional. “Aside

from the undeniably beautiful exterior styling and now even more luxurious interior, there are many important and impressive engineering changes that demonstrate Aston Martin’s renowned ability to create compelling cars in the modern era.” This DB9 sees the introduction of the new generation AM11 V12 engine. The new V12 takes some of the ‘Gen4’ VH architecture hardware technology developed for Aston Martin’s forthcoming all-new super GT, the Vanquish, but has been tuned to suit the character of DB9. The result is an engine with effortless torque of up to 620 Nm and peak power of 517 hp – both significantly improved versus the outgoing unit. Top speed is 183 mph and the 0-60 mph time is 4.6 seconds.

The off-road estate car is a growing niche market with the likes of the Audi A6 Allroad and Volvo V70 XC well established. However, there is another very strong contender in this sector, the Subaru Outback. With permanent four wheel drive, loads of standard kit, impressive interior space and elegant looks, the Outback deserves much more attention, writes NICK FLETCHER. While not attempting to be an out and out off-roader, the Outback is remarkably capable over difficult terrain and slippery surfaces, with higher ground clearance and precise safe handling. One of the top models is the SE NavPlus which at just over £32,000 is outstanding value in its class. Standard equipment includes leather upholstery, power sunroof, electric windows and door mirrors,, rear-view camera, power driver's seat with memory function, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, push button engine Start/Stop with keyless entry and locking. And there are lots of creature comforts including electronic push/pull hand brake with hill hold, cruise control, auto lights and wipers, and SatNav with an eight-inch touch-screen. You also get iPod and video imputs and 12-volt power socket. There is a lot of storage space in the cabin, plus a substantial 526-litre boot expanding to a flat-load 1,677-litre space which is over six feet in length. The suspension is also self-levelling. On the road, the 148 hp diesel engine is good for 120 mph and the 0-60 mph is sub-10 second (9.7) which is impressive in this class. Also impressive is the fuel economy, 47.8mpg combined. That should be attainable - even in a week of mainly city driving I still achieved just over 40 mpg with no effort at economy. The Outback is better equipped than most rivals, is very well-built and the Subaru brand is noted for dependability. I think this model is vastly under-rated and, at the money, almost impossible to fault.

Aruba Bournemouth Beach

Set in the heart of Sandbanks, Jazz Café enjoys spectacular views of Dorset’s premier Blue Flag beach. This relaxing destination, loved by locals and highly recommended by holidaymakers, is where you can enjoy appetising home cooked food and drink all year round. Jazzy’s as it’s affectionately referred to, offer a wholesome experience and friendly attentive service, with a variety of freshly cooked meals prepared by their chefs and regular entertainment from their house band, with the Jazz Café Sunday lunch jazz sessions have become a local tradition. Jazzy’s also run a Friday Nite Jazz Series where good food and fine wine compliment the Ray D’Inverno/Andy Urquhart Quartet and other star guests from the UK jazz scene. Entry is by ticket only from £15, or £34 with 2 courses, or £39 with 3 courses. These sessions are in big demand so early booking (on 01202 708346) is strongly advised.

Koh Thai Tapas offers innovative yet classic Thai cuisine of the highest caliber. The combined vision of three intrepid foodies; Koh really encapsulates the authenticity of Thai cooking with the European ideals of relaxed dinning and the tantalising option to sample a little of everything. Koh was awarded Bournemouth's Restaurant of the Year 2010 just 11 months after opening in Boscombe in December 2009 and if there is any truth in the saying you eat with your eyes first, then Koh tastes delicious. From the moment you walk through the door deep ambers and reds lure you in and the spray painted Thai backdrops are a beautiful setting for what truly is a complete dining experience. The team are now bringing the Koh brand to the Soho Quarter of Bournemouth with the keenly anticipated opening of their sister restaurant, 38-40 Poole Hill.

Sevens Boatshed is, quite simply, a stunning venue for every type of guest. They have something here for everyone. Everything is made from fresh; even the bread is baked by their own baker.
