HARD TIMES The end of 2012 and early 2013 has been another tough period for the high street, brought to a head by the recent news of HMV, Blockbuster, Dreams and Jessops who’ve dominated the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Sadly, this picture isn’t likely to change in the near future. David says ‘with these major retailers failing in the high street it highlights the plight being experienced by retailers operating in secondary/tertiary locations where independent traders are more likely to be located and where a fall in turnover can be more difficult to absorb ’. ‘As a Property Manager acting on behalf of both National and Local Investor landlords it is imperative that a close relationship is maintained with tenants so that any early signs of lease default can be actioned as necessary in order to mitigate potential losses for landlords. At Goadsby, we pride ourselves in performing this role due to our experienced team of 9 dedicated Commercial Property Managers and back up Accounts Team’. David Waters would be pleased to discuss any potential management issues or instructions and can be contacted on 01202 550000 or david.waters@ goadsby.com 4

DEMAND FOR LETTINGS SHOWS NO SIGN OF ABATING The significant growth of the rental market continues apace, according to Connells Lettings in Poole. “Over the past few months we have seen a substantial increase in all aspects of our lettings service compared with the same period last year,” says Lettings Manager Kerry Egan. “However, whilst more stock is now coming onto the market, we still have far more applicants than properties available and this imbalance between supply and demand means that homes we do take on are being let out quickly and achieving

good rental levels.” The massive growth of the rental market over the past few years, driven to a large extent by more mobile patterns of work and people unable to sell or obtain a mortgage to purchase, has led to a proliferation of lettings agencies on the High Street. Sadly not all these are either reputable or well run and the poor practices of a few rogue agents are not only bad news for landlords and tenants, but also can unfairly tarnish the reputation of the majority of professional, quality agents such as Connells. The company,

therefore, welcomes the Government’s recent proposed legislation which requires all lettings agents to sign up to an approved redress scheme, something Connells has done voluntarily for many years. As the Bill is unlikely to become law before the Autumn, Connells is urging landlords and tenants to make sure that in the meantime they choose an agent who is already affiliated to an independent redress scheme such as ARLA (Association of Residential Lettings Agents). “Obviously, as responsible lettings agents, we hope

we won’t ever find ourselves in dispute with our landlords or tenants. However, if the worst should happen, being a member of ARLA means we can ensure that things get resolved quickly and fairly,” concludes Kerry. Connells offers a wide range of lettings services from simply finding a suitable tenant and collecting the rent to full property management. To find out more please contact your local office on 01202 673977, email kerry.egan@connells.co.uk or call into the branch at 80 High Street, Poole BH15 1DB.

INTERIORS

AT HOME WITH MONOCHROME If you’re confused by colour charts, wavering over wallpaper, and dithering over decor, there’s a solution which could bring your home into fashionable focus.

INTERIORS MONOCHROME The classic combination of black and white - can take on a variety of personalities to suit your home and taste. Think sharp, chic and elegant, mean and moody with inky black walls and gothic accessories, or the perfect backdrop allowing you to flirt with vibrant splashes of colour. Just as the LBD (little black dress) is a wardrobe staple, increasingly interiors designers are relying on LBD (lots of black decor) to create successful settings. “Monochrome will always endure in fashion and interiors because it’s classic, simple and instantly alluring,” says Mari

anne Shillingford, head of Dulux Design Service, a network of interior design experts across the UK. “This year monochrome interiors are becoming less about the stark contrast between black and white and more about a subtle amalgamation of tones that create tranquil restful spaces in which to slow down. “Smoky warm shades of black and grey combine with greyed off-whites are silent colours that speak of still waters, starry nights and the transient hours of dusk and dawn.” So view your home in black and white and let monochrome work its magic on your rooms.

MONO CHIC

There’s a timeless elegance in the pairing of black and white which suits the current trend for fashionable pared-back ‘less is more’ contemporary settings. “Black and white looks effortlessly chic and will give a home an instant contemporary edge,” says Massino Cian, head of design at Calligaris. “Simply painting walls white and adding black furniture instantly lifts your home style decor and gives it a modern monochrome look.” Strategically placed accessories, from vases and cushions to lamps and monochrome prints, are all that’s needed as sophisticated, finishing touches, he suggests. Black & white buys: Give yourself the freedom to experiment with fabrics and delve into JAB’s Black & White collection with its innovative and subtle patterns, from ¬£42.50 a metre. One piece of furniture can be a starting point for a scheme, and two bold examples are a Landsdowne Sofa, ¬£2,650, Sofa Design, or an ultra-smart Fan Chair with a beautifully sculpted black back and pure white seat, ¬£1,839, Christopher Guy. Alternatively, divide a space with a black and white Trees divider, ¬£90, from Arthouse. Ben de Lisi’s witty accessories range for Debenhams includes an on-trend white canvas barcode cushion, £22, and a newsprint lamp, £45, with his trademark French bulldog swathed in newspaper design.

STYLE TIP: Consider the lighting scheme carefully as it needs to be warm so you avoid a stark, unforgiving effect.

OPEN HOUSE

MANAGERS VIEW MARGARET ANNABLE, OWNER/MANAGER

Having been selling properties in the Queens Park area of Bournemouth for over 20 years, one of the fascinating aspects for me is the variety of property styles in the area. This very distinctive property on Queens Park West Drive is no exception, being much newer than most of the neighbouring properties and a particularly large size for such a relatively modern house. It’s a very practical, well presented home, in a great location with a view of trees on Queens Park Golf Course opposite. For a larger family, perhaps, with 5 double bedrooms. One of my favourite rooms is the en suite bathroom to the main bedroom – it has to be one of the largest en suites I have seen, and includes both a shower cubicle and a ball-and-claw-foot bath. The main bathroom is very large too, and there is a useful en suite cloakroom to another bedroom – ideal for guests. The dining room, study, cloakroom and super size kitchen/breakfast room with a Rangemaster Toledo cooker likely to appeal to keen cooks. The rear garden has a favoured Westerly aspect, and the large terrace across the back of the property is a great spot for al fresco dining and relaxing.

Key Drummond Estate Agents would like to extend a warm invitation for you to attend the open weekend of this last remaining luxury waterfront property. Reflection Bay is a prestigious, modern development of three four bedroom houses whose design concept owes its form not only to the architects/designers but to the coastal environment in which it is situated. The contemporary theme is echoed inside with the creative use of materials, colours and textures. Room sizes are generous and benefit from the extensive use of glass. The excellent location in Lagoon Road combined with the light and airy feel of the houses, creates a wonderful space in which to live.

11 Haven Road, Canford Cliffs, Dorset, BH13 7LE


GLORY DE MAULEY ROAD, CANFORD CLIFFS “We have visited Poole a number of times and particularly liked Canford Cliffs with its village atmosphere and being so close to the beach and harbour. We noted that many of the large modern houses in the area has been built by Silver Arrow and so it was somewhat wishful thinking when we walked into their offices and asked if they could build us something in the Canford Cliffs area within our more modest budget. The reception we received could not have been more welcoming and their positive attitude has continued throughout the whole process. From finding us a site that we could afford, obtaining all the necessary approvals, to constructing a new house to meet our requirements it has been a pleasure to work with them. Because of the quick programme we were working to, some aspects of the design evolved during the process and we always felt that they were very fair in the way they addressed the issues and dealt with the cost implications. They have always listened to our wishes and delivered to us a beautiful house whose traditional design sits comfortably within its context whilst achieving the contemporary appearance that we wanted and for which the company is renowned.� Jil and Nigel Kirk Owners of Glory

FINANCE

THE VALUE OF A MORTGAGE BROKER (AND DEBBIE J BOYES IN PARTICULAR!!) A great mortgage broker can do so much more than simply find you a good rate of interest!

1. WE KNOW THE CRITERIA! Lenders change their underwriting criteria frequently and you could findthat even the tiniest personal detail can put you outside the criteria. Which lenders ignore debts you intend to clear and which still take them into consideration? Which lenders are more lenient with missed or late payments? How do lenders consider other properties you own? Etc.

2. IS YOUR INCOME IS ACCEPTABLE? Many Clients have incomes from different sources e.g. salary, dividends, net profit, car allowance, overtime, shift allowance, maintenance, benefits etc and lenders view these in different ways.

3. BANKS and BUILDING SOCIETIES CANNOT GIVE ADVICE! Even though they are called advisors ALL a bank or building society can do is sell you the products they have available! Even under regulatory rules, they offer what is called a “non-advised sale”. Your mortgage broker is responsible for considering your overall situation and finding the lender who works best FOR YOU!

4. WE KNOW THE RULES! A good mortgage advisor will stick with any problems which may arise and has the expertise to help you iron them out – so always choose an advisor who has a great reputation!

6. THE FIGURES! A good broker can make sure that you have allowed sufficient funds for all the costs involved with the purchase. We can help you structure your situation so that you get the best rates, and that your mortgages make the best use of your money.

7. INSURANCE! You have worked hard to get your home and it would be a shame to lose it and put your family at risk by either not having insurance, or by having the wrong sort. We can help you get the very best for your money.

5. TIME SAVING! By using an experienced professional you are able to continue with your busy life rather than trawling down the High Street or on the Internet – unsure as to whether your circumstances are fully acceptable to the lender.

8. OTHER CONTACTS! A good broker has a good circle of other professionals who can help in other areas! I suppose the proof is in the pudding – we have many Clients who are unsure about paying a fee but, according to our Customer Surveys, 100% of them would use us again and recommend us to others! We understand that dealing with your mortgage can be a very stressful time, and our aim is to help reduce this stress – and then keep you as a Client for life! If you have that sort of commitment from your Mortgage Advisor we believe that you will feel that you have received great value for money!

If you would like to discuss your options, call Debbie J Boyes on 01202 874100 and arrange a time for a no obligation chat.

YOUR PROPERTY MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE. We do not charge a fee for insurance advice; we only receive commission from the provider. For residential and buy to let mortgages we can be paid a fee of £695 and may also receive commission from the lender. Alternatively, you can pay a fee of 1% of the loan amount for our services and we will refund to you any commission we receive from the lender, subject to a minimum fee of £1500. For commercial mortgages we charge a maximum of 1.5% of the loan amount subject to the size and complexity of the proposition. We may also refund some commission if it is received from lenders.

OUTDOOR LIVING

As long as the sun still shines and it keeps on raining, those trees will continue to grow.

MONEY DOES GROW ON TREES Next time you’re driving down a motorway past a forest, take a moment to realise that all those trees could be yours.

A LEAFY PORTFOLIO Commercial forestry is one of the safest, greenest and most tax-efficient investments you can make and, according to experts, it’s never been a better time to invest in a leafy portfolio. When the credit crunch caused stocks and shares to lose their value and the housing market to drop, forestry and timber prices stayed solid. “Forestry is an alternative investment with the added security it doesn’t move with the stock market,” says Michael Ackerman, President of PMA International, an investment company managing forests in Latin America (www.pmainternational.com). 52


WHY WOOD IS GOOD? There are many reasons why forestry is an attractive investment, but one of the main benefits are the tax breaks involved. After two years of owning a commercial forest, your investment qualifies for business property relief, meaning you don’t have to pay inheritance tax (IHT) on it further down the line. “Anything you invest in forestry in the UK is completely exempt from inheritance tax, so you can pass the forest on to your children without paying a penny of IHT,” says Alan Guy, acquisitions and brokerage manager for Fountains Plc. (www.fountainsforestry.co.uk). To qualify, there needs to be evidence the timber from the forest is being marketed and sold, so you can’t just buy a pleasant little wood for shooting parties. “The other strong benefit of owning a commercial forest, is that all the income you get from selling timber is completely exempt from both income and corporation tax,” continues Guy. “It’s to encourage people to invest in forestry long term.”

By investing in forestry, you’re also doing your bit for the planet. There’s a constant guilt-trip about the size of our carbon footprints, from jetting around the world to driving gasguzzling cars. But you could offset those carbon emissions by buying a chunk of woodland. Not only do trees soak up harmful carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, commercial forests are 100 per cent sustainable. For every tree chopped down, another is planted to replace it, so it’s an eco-friendly investment to make your friends green with envy! “Creating more renewable resources to cater to issues like the increasing demand for biofuels is an irreversible trend and an environmental necessity,” says Kamil Stender, CEO of Helvetia Wealth, a financial service that offers investment in forestry as part of its product portfolio (www.helvetiawealth.com). “We want to facilitate this trend by providing the appropriate financial tools and lucrative investment opportunities.” And its important not to confuse forestry with logging, adds Alan Guy. “Logging is a criminal activity carried out by ignorant and poor people in developing countries for the very good reason that they’re starving and want to make money by cutting down native forest.” “We don’t do that. Every tree we cut down, we replace. The area of forestry in the USA and Northern Europe has actually increased significantly since 1950. It’s totally sustainable, despite all the paper, furniture and construction timber we’ve taken out of it - billions of tonnes of timber - we’ve replanted everything we’ve cut down with young trees.”

SPARE STYLE A spare room needn’t be a wasted space, or a dumping ground for clutter. We source some great buys and offer some expert tips for creating the perfect guest room.


The kids might be running around the house in school holiday-induced excitement, and friends and relatives popping round with all the gossip - but chances are you’ll hear nothing as you single-handedly fight your way through the clutter in the spare room. Giving it a makeover so it’s fit for guests is often the lastminute task of the season, with the rest of the family mysteriously melting away as soon as it’s mentioned. Unfortunately, all too often we haven’t even got a clue what’s accumulated in there and dread clearing it, according to a survey by Spaceslide, online sliding wardrobe systems and storage specialist. “These rooms are usually a repository for things that no one can find a space for elsewhere, from seasonal clothes to sports kit and board games,” says Jon Gough at Spaceslide, where shelving systems start from £83.40. “Often, it’s a room only used

• • • • • • • •

around five times a year for visitors so the clutter easily mounts unnoticed. “Adequate storage, which maximises space, helps hugely whether it’s wardrobes with sliding doors or open shelving. Making the most of every inch of room, from under-bed storage to better use of room in an existing wardrobe, will all make it easy to organise possessions.” It’s not too late to transform the spare room into a cosy sanctuary with the addition of new, attractive bedding and accessories, and a bit of decor TLC. In the New Year you could take advantage of the sales and invest in kit which could significantly improve the room and render any more of those frenzied seasonal sortouts unnecessary. Follow our guide to bringing style to the spare room - with short-term and long-term solutions.

Lamco: www.lamco-design.co.uk - 01202 694963 The most common use for spare rooms I find, is for another child on the way that needs a bedroom / play room. Kids wardrobes are becoming much more popular now with a bedroom designed around his of her needs in a bedroom. MisuraEmme offer a fantastic range of quirky furniture including study desk, wardrobes, bookcases, beds etc.. all of these come in funky colours and with near limitless designs any thing is possible.

TRAVEL

AMAZING PLACES As the British Museum stages a blockbuster exhibition on Pompeii and Herculaneum, Kate Whiting visits southern Italy to explore the fascinating archaeological sites and take in the beautiful Amalfi Coast.

POMPEII At the heart of the Stabian Baths lie two bodies, their bones preserved forever in plastercast moulded into the agonised positions in which they died.

86

panicked Pompeians fleeing from the falling ash.

The ancient baths, which two millennia before would have been filled with life, are a strange place to be confronted by death. But it’s inescapable in Pompeii, overshadowed as it is by the blown-apart peak of Vesuvius which wreaked havoc on the Roman town in 79AD.

On our visit, only the spring sunshine is beating down on myriad huddles of tourists being led around. Our guide, Lia, has been coming here for 20 years and wends her well-trodden way through the cobbled streets to show us the highlights of the wealthy inhabitants’ abodes, including the House of the Menander with its fresco-covered alcove still holding the worn heads of household gods.

The tragedy of Pompeii - and its near neighbour Herculaneum - has been the subject of many books and documentaries. Now its the inspiration behind The British Museum’s latest blockbuster exhibition, Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum, which runs until September 29.

The brothel is another mustsee of Pompeii, although it’s a blink-and-you-miss-it affair. It’s a small building and there are always crowds wanting to see the frescoes depicting various sexual positions on the walls, and the five cell-like rooms with stone beds where services were ‘rendered’.

Of the 250 artefacts on display - many taken from the Naples National Archaeological Museum - many are eerily redolent of everyday life: from the carbonised loaf of bread almost identical to some I’ve seen in Tesco, to the ceramic pot of toothpicks (albeit made from bone).

Pompeii was a thriving business centre, where fish sauce, or garum, was sold in stone amphorae and slaves could aspire to earn their freedom. Herculaneum, on the other hand, was more of a high-class seaside resort. Back then both towns were on the coast, although you wouldn’t believe it today, as the sea is out of sight. But the boathouses in Herculaneum, where hundreds tried to shelter and perished, are clearly visible along what would have been the old shoreline.

But it’s hard to take in the scale of what unfolded on that fearsome August day until you’re actually standing in the forum of the ghost town itself, with Vesuvius lurking on the horizon, and picturing the


In 79AD wealthy Romans would have come here from Rome on their holidays. Now, tourists from all over the world come in their millions to marvel over the surviving carbonised wood room dividers and still-bright frescoes. The entire Bay of Naples has become something of a tourist hotspot - and it’s easy to see why the ancient Romans loved it so much. Today, the town of Sorrento makes the perfect base for forays into Pompeii and Herculaneum and, for those who dare, up Vesuvius. We stay at the Imperial Hotel Tramontano, which commands an enviable clifftop location with views across the bay to a hazy Vesuvius. Formerly a mansion, and decorated with sumptuous antique furniture, it boasts an impressive list of literary visitors, including Milton, Ibsen and Last Of The Mohicans author Charles Fenimore Cooper, and the West Wing was the birthplace of Italian poet Torquato Tasso. As the sun dips in the sky, the balmy warmth of dusk draws people out into Sorrento’s narrow cobbled lanes for a pre-dinner wander - a ritual that’s very easy to adopt. Ducking down a side street off the Piazza Tasso, we find a pizzeria called Basilica - and indulge in our first of many real Italian pizzas, mine complete with artichoke hearts. Every restaurant in Sorrento serves a shot of chilled Limoncello, lemon liquor, as a little

extra after a meal. It’s a sweet and sour speciality of the region, which is known for its lemon groves - in fact you can barely walk down a street without passing a lemon tree. Our favourite spot in Sorrento is easily the cloisters of the church of San Francesco, which offer a small dose of tranquillity - if you time it right and avoid a bus-load of tourists. With its tumbling wisteria and central weeping willow, it’s also a popular location for Brits to get married. As pretty as Sorrento is, there’s absolutely no contest when you travel along the Amalfi Coast to Ravello, perched high in the cliffs. Our driver, Enrico, takes it very steady along the twisty coastal road which passes through the hotspots of Positano (a favourite of Russian tycoon Roman Abramovich) and Amalfi itself. Until 1200, Amalfi was one of Italy’s four maritime republics and the wealthiest liked to live just up the hill in Ravello. Today, the town has just 2,500 inhabitants, but in the 12th century there were 25,000, including a disproportionate number of palazzi owned by the mercantile nobility. The most famous surviving palazzo is that owned by the Rufolo family - the Villa Rufolo - off the main piazza and next to Ravello’s duomo (cathedral). Built on a ledge towering above the sea, it inspired Richard Wagner’s set design for his opera Parsifal and is the setting for concerts during Ravello’s annual classical music festival. The gardens are impressive, but not as much as those at the lesser-known Villa Cimbrone, which more than reward the visitor who hikes up the cobbled street out of Ravello to see them. Ranging over several acres and terraces at different heights, the garden at Cimbrone is filled with statues, temples and grottoes and boasts the most breathtaking view in Ravello, from the Terrace of Infinity. To make ourselves feel like nobility, we stay at the Hotel Caruso, part of the Orient-Express group, and itself a former palazzo. Its ancient walls and fresco-covered ceilings

have been carefully preserved and it has, to my mind, the world’s most spectacular infinity pool with a 360-degree view of the sea on one side and the hills, cut into terraces of lemon and olive trees, on the other. The poolside bar has its own wood-fired pizza oven, serving tables on an immaculate lawn overlooking views of the rugged coastline. The next morning, after breakfast served on our balcony, we take advantage of the hotel’s daily complimentary boat trip from Amalfi, along the coast to Positano, famous for its colourful houses stacked up the hillside. From the sea, you get a unique a take on the coastline, as castles on rocky outcrops and luxury villas of the rich and famous drift by.

Back at the hotel, I enjoy a relaxing manicure before dinner of locally-caught amberjack fish in the hotel’s restaurant, overlooking the twinkling lights of neighbouring towns around the coast. It seems a world away from the tragedy of Pompeii, but I can’t help thinking the luxury-loving Romans would have approved. A week’s holiday combining four nights at the Imperial Tramontano Hotel in Sorrento and three nights in Ravello at the five-star Hotel Caruso, part of Citalia’s Exclusive Collection, start from £1,235 per person, including flights from London Gatwick with BA, transfers and breakfast. One free night is included at each hotel, along with a saving of £775 per couple. Based on departures 16 October 2013.

If you are a first time landlord, portfolio investor or have developments to let, you’ll understand what’s important to you and your investment. It stands to reason that you want support from a like minded company. At YOU home we are completely transparent about our business, the way we work and what we charge you. Our fees are extremely competitive, what you see is what you get. Lettings is based on THREE fundamental principles:

As a landlord you will understand the importance of minimising the periods your property is empty. Everyday is a cost to you, which is why we’ve created a letting and management service geared entirely around maximising your revenue.

Quick tenant find - ultimately, you want your properties to let fast - after all, time is money. We can market your property within hours of instruction and reference tenants within 48 hours.

Eg. For a property listed at £850 per month, you would lose £395 every 2 weeks it remains unlet. It is therefore vital not only to bring your property to the market quickly but, even more so, to assess its rental value realistically from the outset. £815 per month today is the same as £850 in two weeks‘ time.

ASK THE PROPERTY EXPERT UPDATE ON DEPOSIT RULES Me and my partner moved into a rented property 12 months ago and gave our landlord a deposit. We have read somewhere that this should be protected. How can we find out if our deposit has indeed been protected and what happens if it has not? All deposits paid to a landlord or letting agent in England and Wales and where an Assured Shorthold Tenancy has been entered into, must be protected through a recognised scheme. The legislation which came into force from April 2007 ensures that deposits are fairly handled; so if the tenant meets the terms of the tenancy agreement, the entire amount is returned. It also allows landlords to fairly use the deposit to cover any damages or loss of rent caused by the tenant. If any disputes occur, a dispute resolution service will aim to resolve them quickly. Protecting tenancy deposits is a legal requirement. Failing to protect the deposit and/or serving all the prescribed information to the tenant within 30 days of the landlord/agent receiving it can have the following consequences: • The tenant can claim the penalty of three times the deposit amount and the return of the deposit • A valid Section 21 notice cannot be served if the deposit is not protected If you visit www.gov.uk/tenancy-deposit-protection/overview, this will give you more detail and give you the various schemes which you will be able to access to find out if your deposit has been protected. You could also ask your landlord for a copy of the Deposit Certificate and Prescribed Information for your records and this will also clarify where your deposit is being protected.

INTERIORS

BACK IN THE HABITAT On a bleak, frosty morning in the heart of London, the same question is on everybody’s lips: can Habitat, the design brand which transformed millions of homes back in the Sixties and Seventies, really make a successful revival in the harsher, more penny-pinching world of 2013?

AN AWESOME CHALLENGE That’s the awesome challenge for Polly Dickens, seemingly handed something of a poisoned chalice when she was named Habitat’s new creative director in January 2012 - just six months after the battered brand almost disappeared from our high streets as 30 of its stores went into administration.

Clarke 3-seat sofa saffron, £750; Orrico hammered aluminium coffee table, £200; Ikin rug, £195; Grayson metal floor lamp, £90 and Mila cushion, £25, Habitat. 114

At the time, the company’s condition was widely viewed as terminal. Just three shops in London were rescued when Habitat was bought by Home Retail Group, owner of Argos and Homebase.


Olive ceramic parrot, £40; Persimmon ceramic parrot, £40; Blue spindle occasional table, £150; yellow spindle occasional table, £135; black spindle occasional table, £135, Habitat.

But now, it’s coming back in fighting form, and today, in a suitably uber-chic all-white venue in the UK’s stylish capital, Dickens is unveiling the brand’s revitalised ranges to the press. On first impressions, the sparkling new Spring/Summer collection doesn’t disappoint. Quirky accessories, from paint-splashed cockatoo ornaments (£40) to camel candle holders (£20), an array of elegant, sleek contemporary furniture pieces made special with details, finishes or bold colours, is proof that the affordable British design brand has once again found its form. Clearly basking in a warm buzz of approval, lots of ‘mwah, mwah’ air kiss greetings and a flood of compliments at the collection’s first outing, a delighted Dickens says: “This has been about breathing new excitement and appeal into a much-loved, brilliant brand.

People now want an identity to their homes and pieces which are individual, interesting and a little bit different


INTERIORS

“I believe there are a lot of frustrated Habitat fans out there who still love its timeless classics but are now looking for it to have fresh pieces, exuberance, fun, a sense of humour and edginess. I think we’re giving them that and hopefully we’re well on the road to winning new converts.” But will it be as easy second time round? In its first incarnation, Habitat, launched in 1964, was a brilliant concept which practically established Terence Conran overnight among the top rank of designers (before he went off to transform our restaurants too).

Alternatively, you can rock back in style on a Lyra rattan rocking chair in vivid blue (£320), one of many pieces in this material range, including a Margo rattan light shade (£60).

Habitat designs had instantly recognisable quirks and quality. The brand pioneered or popularised duvets, bean bags, paper lanterns, sofa beds and self-assembly furniture, and sold its own affordable version of idealised country and urban living. The first generation of Habitat devotees, the baby-boomers then in their 20s, are in now their 60s and worrying more about how to fit hip replacements in between long-haul travel plans than their ‘des res’. Today it’s their sons and daughters who are wondering how they can make their homes distinctive - and Polly Dickens, obviously, is pretty confident that she can appeal to them as they buy their first homes well into their 30s, much later than their parents did.

116

“People now want an identity to their homes and pieces which are individual, interesting and a little bit different. They also want to know where they’ve been sourced and the story behind them. “So as well as a fantastic team of young designers - from Italy, Japan and America as well as England - we’ve travelled the world looking for inspiration, craftsmen and suppliers,” says Dickens, giving an insight into her strategy to capture our hearts and homes. “We’re lucky enough to also draw on a wonderful history with many of our makers. So our woven rugs collection, which includes an Ikin rug (£195),is made by a supplier Terence originally found in India in the Sixties The man’s son now runs the carpet weaving company where they still hand-spin yarn on looms.

JEMMA plantpot, red, £35 (small), £45 (large), Habitat.

“That contrasts with one of our newest recruits who is in Lithuania and helping us produce stunning furniture. We have a ceramic collection with some pieces hand-dipped by a lady in Thailand, so no one item is the same. And there are beautiful, traditional quilts made in India. “It’s all about allowing the ‘hand of the maker’ to shine through and give everything character and personality.” She and her team have travelled thousands of miles - Indonesia, Vietnam, India, Thailand, Croatia, to name but a few destinations - in pursuit of the new Habitat vision, so that customers won’t have to. As well as its three London stores and website (habitat.co.uk), a selection of more than 1,000 Habitat products are available in more than 200 Homebase stores nationwide. In addition, Habitat’s opened three mini-stores within Homebase with further openings to follow this year. A selected product range is also available in a 20-page section of the Argos catalogue. Dickens believes people will now easily be able to find all the ingredients necessary for a distinctive contemporary home, both indoors and out. “Habitat’s always been known for good design, at a good price, incorporating great colour and those are still at its heart. I love colour, orange is one of my favourite shades, and I wanted this collection to reflect that. Serai camel candle holder Habitat £20.00

“We’ve partnered beautiful sunny colours, such as the tomato and saffron used on the spindle Talia chair (£99 each) with a Milner table (£450) in anthracite (a soft aubergine), with warm neutrals. That way, the colours feel modern and are not overpowering but easy to live with.” One of her favourite pieces is a Hanoi bowl (£35), with its sunny yellow lacquered outer finish and woven bamboo interior. “This piece is so indicative of the whole collection - a mixture of the natural combined with a shot of bright colour and a slightly handcrafted feel,” she says. Comfort ranks as highly as style, and Dickens is keen that this combination stays at the core of Habitat’s designs. “I know exactly what I want from a sofa - it needs to look brilliant and be somewhere you can sit all evening, with a glass of wine and watch your favourite telly programme, and feel totally cosseted and relaxed,” she says. “Our British-made Clarke sofa (£750) fulfils all those expectations.” It’s hard to believe Dickens has time for much lounging in her own home, a converted Dutch barge moored near Canary Wharf, which she shares with her husband Mark Gilbey, a furniture designer who once worked for Habitat. Her break in design came when she was hired as a buyer for The Conran Shop in 1981, aged 24. She rose to buying director, departed for spells at brands Anthropologie, Liberty and Armani Casa, before returning to The Conran Shop as creative director where she stayed for seven years until 2010. “It’s very special for me working with Habitat because it’s part of Britain’s interiors DNA, and it’s definitely in my DNA because of all the years I’ve worked with Terence,” she says. “Oddly though, I’ve never actually worked for Habitat before, so this is a bit like completing the circle. “My first experience of the brand was as a new student going to university and my mother took me to one of the shops to kit out my room. I’ve only just thrown out the vivid red enamel saucepan from those days. “That’s what’s so lovely - there are so many associations through the generations with Habitat, and now it’s going to build more. I can’t wait to see it developing.”

Decorating is one thing, but major home improvements are often less straight forward - even if planning permission isn’t required, other permissions may be. With listed buildings, home improvements are rarely as simple as they seem, as the listing applies to both the inside and outside. The safest option is to check with your local council’s conservation officer before making any changes, because work that seems minor can require listed building consent from the council. The process of seeking consent is similar to

PLAY BY THE RULES that of planning permission, but in complicated cases and ones involving certain types of work and Grade I and Grade II-listed buildings (the most important ones), the case will be referred to English Heritage (see www.english-heritage.org. uk for advice). You can appeal if consent is refused, but doing the work without consent is a criminal offence, and you can be forced to reverse any unauthorised changes. Special rules also apply to properties on ‘designated land’, such as conservation areas and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The permitted development rules are different here, meaning there’s less you can do to your home without planning permission. For example, side extensions and loft conversions are not permitted development

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK ELECTRICAL SANDER Good electric sanders can be hard to find, but the Titan TTB289SDR 450W Random Orbital Sander (£39.99, Screwfix) is a gem. Not only is it good value for money, it’s also powerful enough to chew through sanding jobs with ease. The rubberised grip is ergonomically designed so it’s comfortable to hold, even for long periods, and you can vary the speed of the sanding according to the job in hand. Unlike some sanders, the power trigger can be locked in the on position, which saves hand ache, and the Titan comes with a clip-on dust box and a sturdy carry case. A great buy.

for houses on designated land, but they can be done without planning on most other houses, as long as the rules are followed. Conservation areas have special historical or architectural interest, and councils are keen to preserve their appearance and character. This is laudable, but it can make life difficult for home improvers because it gives councils more say over minor changes to buildings, gardens and trees. In addition, extra restrictions apply to certain properties. If a property has been subject to an Article 4 Direction, planning permission is required for home improvements that wouldn’t normally need it, such as replacing the windows. If your home’s leasehold, it’s not just the local council you have to worry about. Most leases have a clause stating that al-

terations must be approved by the freeholder (by them signing a licence to alter), although the lease will probably also say that permission can’t reasonably be refused. Even if you own a share of the freehold, you still need the written permission of the other freeholders. Getting your freeholder or co-freeholders to agree can be a long and painful process, and some have been known to unreasonably refuse or to ask for money in return for granting permission. Doing alterations without a signed licence to alter from the freeholder/s can cause problems when you sell if you’re in breach of the lease, even if they’re also in breach of it. The other way in which your neighbours may become involved in your home improvements is if you need a party wall agreement with

them. Party walls are ones that you share with your neighbours in terraced and semidetached houses. They can also be shared floors/ceilings in flats, and walls built astride a boundary in the garden. The Party Wall etc Act 1996 governs building work involving these, plus new boundary walls and some excavations close to neighbouring buildings. The purpose of the Act is to minimise or avoid disputes between neighbours over building work affecting party walls by setting out how it should be done. You start by serving a notice on the affected neighbours and if they don’t agree to the work, you resolve the ‘dispute’ with party wall surveyors and agreements. Again, this can be a difficult and expensive process, but it’s one you avoid at your peril.

MACK’S CRAIC

Ring now or call in and see us

01202 874207 | www.sandandgravel.uk.com

The JACK fm presenter talks about one awkward situation

Techniques for laying Indian sandstone paving are different, the thickness variation of Indian Sandstone requires it to be laid on a 4 parts sharp sand: 1 part cement semi dry mix. The wetter mix allows the finished height of individual paving slabs to be adjusted to counter the variation in thickness. When mixing mortar for natural stone it is important that the correct amount of water is added. If the mix is too dry it will lack the flexibility required to adjust the finished height of the paving slabs. If the mix is too wet then the slabs can sometimes sink under their own weight.

“You’re actually quite boring in real life, aren’t you?” That’s what a listener to my radio show told me over lunch once. When he said that, I was hurt. I couldn’t understand why someone would say something so insensitive to my face. This all happened over ten years ago and now I think I understand exactly what he meant and why he said it. Before I explain, let me tell you about that day, which was the first and last time I saw this bloke. The environment was formal. It wasn’t a pub lunch in a rowdy, town centre watering hole. This was the poshest silver service restaurant at the local racecourse on a race day. I was wearing a shirt and tie because you weren’t allowed in without one. I was uncomfortable because I realized during the lunch that I’d failed to prepare a proper exit strategy. I’d mistakenly agreed to meet him at his house then we’d travelled to the racecourse together in his car. There was no way I could make my excuses and leave when I wanted to. And it wasn’t just a meal; it was an entire afternoon of racing. This was a hostage situation. Back then, I was presenting an edgy Breakfast Show on a commercial radio station in the Midlands. It was a show where we’d blown things up in a microwave, made prank phone calls and on more than one occasion had naked people in the studio. That morning like every other week-day morning, I’d got up before 4am, presented four hours of live on-air chaos, then sat through two lively meetings planning crazy stuff for the next day. A nice relaxing afternoon with someone who I thought would be interesting to listen to really appealed to me. This bloke was a successful businessman who used to be a professional footballer. I was expecting HIM to be the life and soul of the party, after all he’d invited ME, not the other way around. I was expecting tales of great business deals he’d done and sporting anecdotes from years gone by. I felt more than a little bit ripped off myself! I wanted to tell him how boring he was, but I was too polite. As I now realize, it was my restraint that was the actual problem. I was on my best behaviour because that’s how we all are with people we meet for the first time, especially in a formal environment. We only relax with friends and when we’re in comfortable situations. The older the friendship and the more comfortable the surroundings are, the more badly behaved we become. If a stranger tells you it’s their birthday and how old they are, you congratulate them. If a friend tells you, you’ll more than likely make fun of their age and make a joke about how they look much older. When I’m on the radio I behave as if the listener is a close friend. To me that’s exactly what they are. It goes beyond a “suspension of disbelief”. I have to truly believe I’m talking to a friend to be able to do what I do. I’m comfortable in a radio studio and talk on the air and to callers the same way I do with my closest friends, sometimes I’m not very polite on purpose. Radio is an intimate medium, it works by making people believe that we have a close connection that doesn’t really exist. This bloke must have bought into it completely. On that day he couldn’t work out why his “friend” was treating him like a stranger, that must have hurt.

The Time - To Look Good Once the preserve of the rich

and famous, facial aesthetics have become more and more popular and at a more attainable price it’s not surprising that these treatments are often seen as an extension to many women’s beauty routines. This is not without it’s consequences, unfortunately there are many practitioners out there who are simply cashing in on this boom and your health and welfare is not top on their list of priorities.

Look at the horror stories

that always find their way into the press, what is so often the case is the practitioner not being capable or sadly when some patients lie on their medical questionnaires prior to treatment, these questionnaires are there to protect you and not just an inconvenience or waste of time. It is very rare that the product itself either the wrinkle smoothing product or the H A fillers (hyaluronic acid fillers) are to blame. The product that is used to smooth out those unwanted

wrinkles was initially used medically for patients with facial ticks since the 70’s - then some smart cookie noticed that the treated side of their patients faces were looking much smoother and younger - and so its use in the facial aesthetics industry was born.

Until now there has been

(not just a one day course!), find out how long they have been practising in aesthetics, check that they have proper liability insurance. Also be wary of too good to be true deals and offers, ask yourself why, it isn’t a cheap product to buy, even as a well established practitioner like myself buying high quantities, it still comes at a cost.

Austin Brewer is a practitioner

If it’s cheap, it’s for a reason - Either you are being used as a so called “guinea pig” by somebody with very little experience or you’re not getting what you pay for - then again if you’re paying so little maybe that’s exactly what you’re going to get”.

no formal regulation of the industry, but the Independent Healthcare Advisory Service has a pioneering government backed quality assurance scheme in the form of the “Treatments You Can Trust” (TYCT) website in place to protect you. This is a register, that you, as the consumer can search to find a practitioner who has extensive training and insurance and meets the rigorous criteria that acts as a safeguard when searching for a professional and qualified practitioner. in Dorset that is registered - and has been for 2 years. “It should be compulsory, Austin says, if it were I think we’d have a lot fewer practitioners!” He also added “Don’t be afraid to ask questions, ask to see their medical registration card, check that their certificates and training records are extensive

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL Well all I can really say is M.W.A.H has literally changed my life. On my first appointment I turned up in a little flat cap which I wore everywhere and would only take off for bed. Simone had a look at my hair, which was really thin. My doctor told me it was hereditary and there was nothing he could do to help, but Simone, on the other hand, suggested a volumizer. 3 days after I had it fitted, I went home and my kids and my husband could not believe the transformation. 6 months later I am writing this review and my confidence has grown and I just feel totally amazing. Thank you, Simone, and all the other girls at M.W.A.H.

FOOD & DRINK

COOK WITH THE COTTONWOOD Gary Wicker, shows us how to cook great, simple and tasty food.

After the quintessential British Lemon Posset pudding in the last issue we are now hopping across the Channel to France. With Cannes Film Festival running 15th - 26th May, we thought we would bring you a well known and loved French recipe to try. French onion soup is a classic French bistro soup and can be served from the pot it’s made in or in individual soup bowls. The trick to getting this soup right is that the onions must caramelise – they must be cooked for at least 45-60 minutes over a low heat. This soup can be served as a starter or a meal in itself; it all depends on your appetite. You can also add a sneaky drop of Sherry or Cognac if you fancy it.

RECIPE French Onion Soup Ingredients

Method

1. 50g butter 2. 1.25kg onions, peeled, halved and thinly sliced 3. salt and pepper to taste 4. 100ml dry white wine 5. 2 1/2 pints (1.5 litres) beef (chicken or vegetable) stock 6. Sherry or Cognac (if you fancy a slightly tipsy version)

Cheesy Croûtes 1. 2 – 3 slices baguette per person, sliced 1cm (1/2 inch) thick 2. 1 garlic clove, peeled and cut in half 3. 25g melted butter 4. 125g Gruyére cheese

LIVE MUSIC

SERVES 4 - 6

1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan. When melted add the thinly sliced onions and season with salt and pepper. 2. Cook over a low heat for about 45 minutes stirring regularly until the onions are a deep golden brown but not burnt.  3. Add the white wine, turn up the heat to a medium heat and allow the wine to boil (uncovered) until it evaporates.  Add your chosen stock, and the Sherry or Cognac. Bring back to a simmer and allow cooking for a further 10 minutes. Season and set to one side while you make the cheesy croûtes. 4. Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F/Gas Mark. 5. Rub the slices of the baguette with the cut pieces of garlic and brush with half the melted butter. Brush with the remaining butter and place in the hot oven for 10 minutes or until the bread is golden.  6. When you are ready to serve, preheat the grill to a high temperature.  If you are serving the soup in the pot you have cooked it in then cover the top of the hot soup with the croûtes, cover with the grated Gruyére cheese and place under the grill until the cheese is bubbling and golden.

ASK THE GARDEN EXPERT Catherine Morford Nature’s Way Garden Design Spring is a great time to introduce plants into the garden with the soil starting to warm up and the risk of morning frost is not a concern. In addition to providing enjoyment on a personal level, our choice of plants can provide a vital role in supporting our declining bee population. Bees play an important role in pollination throughout the UK and are responsible for pollinating flowers and crops that provide approximately a third of our food supply. It has been well-documented their numbers are dramatically reducing due to a number of difficulties including loss of natural resources and nesting sites, disease and the increased use of insecticides in modern farming Bees and flowers are directly dependant on each other – bees use flowers for their food source of nectar and pollen, with flowers needing bees to pollination, therefore selecting the correct plants is important and our gardens can be a valuable resource. So, if you’d like to opt for some bee-friendly plants this year, here are a few points you might like to consider.

1. Choose a variety of simple flower forms rather than cultivated double-flowering varieties, which provide little food for pollinators. Consider single flowered roses to umbels and tubular forms. 2. A sunny sheltered area of the garden is an ideal place to site nectar-rich planting. 3. Colour and scent is vital in attracting bees with blues, pinks and purples being favourites. 4. Swathes of bee-friendly plants are easier for bees to locate than individual plants, allowing bees to focus on one type of plant for the whole day and in turn conserving energy. 5. Try to select plants that provide a long flowering period throughout their life-cycle from early spring to autumn. 6. If you have a smaller garden, consider vertical space. For example, a honeysuckle climbing up a trellis can provide a valuable nectar-source for bees, together with supplying berries for birds. Limit the use of pesticides, especially when plants are in flower as this is likely to harm beneficial insects as well as the ones you don’t want. Residential gardens covering over one million acres in Britain, so whilst our choice of planting as individuals cannot provide the complete solution it can certainly have a very positive impact on our native bee population. You can find a few suggestions on plant choices but there are many more to choose from – keep an eye out for the RHS “Perfect for Pollinators” logo when buying plants or spend a little time researching some ideas on the internet.

MOTORING

MOTORING NEWS The latest news on all things motoring. By Nick Fletcher

MOTORISTS WANT SMOKING BAN Fifty-six per cent of motorists think that smoking while driving should be banned, according to a survey by the Institute of Advanced Motorists. However, almost half of respondents (forty-five per cent) think that such a ban would be unenforceable.Seventy-five per cent of motorists think that lighting a cigarette while driving is a serious distraction. Fifty-two per cent of those surveyed think the act of lighting a cigarette is the greatest potential danger of smoking and driving. Other survey results reinforce the negative perception of smoking and driving. Respondents felt it was: Irresponsible (forty-eight per cent) As dangerous as using a mobile phone (forty-six per cent). Dangerous (forty-three per cent) IAM chief executive Simon Best said: Smoking is clearly seen as a serious issue by motorists and highlights the impact of distractions in the car. The health benefits may be clear but more research needs to be done to determine whether there are actual road safety grounds to act on these concerns by banning smoking anddriving altogether.

LAND ROVER DISCOVERY ROAD TEST Land Rover’s iconic Discovery sets a benchmark in its class, brilliantly combining the on-road comfort of a luxury car with unstoppable off-road ability. In latest guise, the Discovery is smoother, quieter, more comfortable and even better equipped and overall, it is a package which rivals find hard to equal, let alone exceed, writes NICK FLETCHER. The only engine is a 3.0-litre twin-turbo diesel with 252 hp on tap. It needs all that power because the Disco weighs around 2.5 tonnes. Apart from moving off, when you need to push the accelerator hard to gain momentum, once underway you never feel short of power and the general handling is remarkably car-like, despite its bulk. There are several versions with different equipment levels and ranging from £38,850 to £52,475 for the flagship SDV6 HSE, which was my test model. Even with so much weight and a

lack of aerodynamics, the Discovery still gets from 0-60 mph in just 8.8 seconds, putting some hot-hatchbacks to shame. Top speed is 112 mph and the fuel economy is 32.1 combined , almost exactly what I got after a week of varied use. Pushed hard on the tarmac, the Discovery is superbly composed and retains assurance even on twisty roads. On motorways, its brilliant air suspension copes with even rough surfaces and delivers excellent ride comfort. Land Rover has improved noise intrusion and vibration quite considerably, the result being a relaxing driving environment. The 8-speed auto transmission is smooth and responsive too. Stability and traction controls and hill descent control are standard, along with full-time four-wheel drive. Off-road, it is genuinely impressive, conquering terrain that would leave some rivals stranded. The

cabin is impressive, with wood and leather and a wealth of technology and luxury equipment. You get a great view of the road, the layout is user-friendly, and seating is extremely comfortable. The Discovery seats seven adults with ease, and with full occupancy, still provides 543 litres of luggage space. Fold the seats and you increase that almost five-fold, to 2,558 litres. Even the entry GS Discovery is exceptionally well equipped, with standard kit which includes air-conditioning, all-round power windows, Bluetooth and keyless entry. XS models add cruise control, front parking sensors, automatic headlights and wipers, leather seats, sat-nav and MP3/USB connectivity. My test model, the HSE then adds various other kit including wood trim and a substantially upgraded sound and vision system, creating an impressive luxury ambiance.

HONDA NSX SUPERCAR Honda has opened a pre-order bank for the hotly anticipated NSX supercar. For a deposit of £5,000 potential owners can be among the first in the UK to get behind the wheel of the new NSX when it hits showrooms in 2015. Phil Crossman, Managing Director, Honda (UK), said: “We are really pleased with the interest we’ve already seen for the new NSX. We are still two years away from the launch of the car and yet we’ve received over 20 deposits and that’s before we’ve even announced prices or seen the final production car. With this process in place we are confident demand will remain strong

and early hand raisers can now visit any Honda dealership in the UK and place a deposit.” The new NSX will be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected V6 engine mated to Honda’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system. It will also utilise a unique 2 Electric Motor Drive Unit with a bilateral torque adjustable control system so the new hybrid all-wheeldrive system can instantly generate negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering, which Honda anticipates will deliver handling performance unmatched by previous AWD systems. 153

23RD JUNE DIVERSE ABILITIES IT’S A KNOCK OUT Get a team together and join the fun in this action packed adventure race! As seen on TV, the ‘It’s A Knock Out’ competition is in aid of the Dorset based disability charity, Diverse Abilities Plus, and takes place on 23 June at Redlands Community Sports Hub in Weymouth. Sponsored by Weymouth’s Basepoint Centre, the event

will be a display of novelty objects, gunge and all round merriment replicating the BBC TV show shown during the 1960s to 1980s. The series of games aims to raise valuable funds and awareness for the charity, while offering a fun team building exercise. Participants will compete through mayhem and props in a variety of different activities in a bid to be crowned victorious. By joining the fun, participants will be actively supporting

the work of the local charity, and will have a lot of fun in doing so! Take part in this fun filled event and raise money for Diverse Abilities Plus, the charity that supports adults and children in Dorset living with physical and learning disabilities. The games will be great fun, and very chaotic! It’s not to be missed!

Purple van man is a hilarious new stand up show from Sean Lock, the most fertile comic mind in Britain. We all know what white van man thinks about the world we live in but its time to hear a different voice, purple van man’s voice. Filled with gags, opinions, deft observations and some silly voices this is Sean Lock doing what he does best, spouting inspired jibber jabber as he crosses the country in his purple van. He will make you laugh like a drunken horse. Sean Lock is one of the UK’s most highly acclaimed and original comedians. The British Comedy Award winner has performed on Live At The Apollo and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow.
