Averaging £255,000, they are now 0.9% higher than their previous all-time peak in January 2008. Average house prices in Wales stand at £160,000, £132,000 in Northern Ireland and £182,000 in Scotland. The average UK house price is £245,000. Reporting for July, the ONS notes large regional variations. In London, where the ONS says house prices rose by 9.7% in the 12 months to July, the highest average house price at £438,000. The north-east

had the lowest average house price at £144,000. Excluding London and the south-east, the average UK ‘mix-adjusted’ house price was £192,000 and prices rose by just 0.8% in the year to July, with falls in Scotland, Wales and the north of England. The ONS figure is once again at odds with the Land Registry, which reported that the average house price for the whole of England and Wales in July was £164,098, including an average of £385,799 in London. Peter Rollings, of London agent Marsh & Parsons, said huge buyer demand and a shortage of stock is pushing

up prices in the capital. He said: “In the three months to June, we recorded 11% more buyers entering the market in competition for 14% fewer properties. According to the ONS, UK house price annual changes by region are: London + 9.7% South-East + 2.6% East Midlands + 2.4% South-West + 2.1% West Midlands + 2.0% Northern Ireland + 1.8% Eastern England + 1.4% Yorks and Humber + 0.5% North-West - 0.7% Wales - 0.7% North-East - 1.3% Scotland - 2.0%

PLUG INTO THE FRENCH CONNECTION

From chateau chic to rustic vineyard charm, there’s something irresistibly alluring about French style. Designer Carolyn Westbrook invites Gabrielle Fagan into her Gallic-themed home and shares tips for giving any abode a pinch of Parisian panache.

Stepping inside Carolyn Westbrook’s home, it’s impossible not to notice that romance is in the air. It’s not just the traditional scene-setters of soft lighting, candles, plumped cushions and vases filled with fragrant flowers. There’s also an abundance of gilding, sensually-curved furniture, mirrors with decorative detailing and luxurious fabrics, which provide the clues to the real passion of Westbrook’s life - French style. “My love affair with France began long before I ever set foot in Paris,” says the designer, as she shows me around her beautiful 1800s plantation home, in Texas, America. “I’ve always been drawn to the intricate detailing that’s evident from French furniture, and the way they decorate their homes with elaborate mouldings, aged objects and pieces that have become antique as they were passed down the line, from one generation to the next.” It’s a decor approach she’s interpreted in her own distinctive way and which she reveals in her book, Through The French Door. Her gorgeous home could be a template for Francophiles (17 million Britons holiday in the country every year, according to Foreign Office statistics, making it one of our most enduringly popular overseas destinations) who want to replicate the nation’s sophisticated style this side of the Channel. What makes Westbrook’s abode so interesting is that she embraces a variety of approaches, from the appeal of a grand salon through to French rustic and contemporary Paris chic. Her airy entrance hall has walls decorated with a collection of oil paintings and antique brown transferware plates, all picked up on her frequent visits to French flea markets. 14

INTERIORS

Formality is avoided - nothing should be too regulated or co-ordinating - with an eclectic mix of armchairs. Clutter is tidied away in vintage suitcases, while potted palms and plants give what Westbrook regards as an essential injection of colour and interest. “Many people are faced with a blank canvas when decorating their homes and all those white walls and empty spaces needing to be filled can be daunting,” she says. “It’s often a good idea to break the space down into smaller areas, which will help warm up a room and make it more intimate and comfortable. Oil paintings and diverse collections create a layered effect, tell a story and make a room interesting.”

16

A lounge encapsulates the essence of French salon living where the aim is to be able to instantly relax in time-worn comfort. “But there’s no hint of pretentiousness or

stuffiness, which is what I love about this style,” says Westbrook. “Everything in the room’s been carefully chosen, which takes years of collecting the right ingredients.” She’s chosen a range of fabrics for curtains and sofa and chair upholstery, but the colours and patterns blend harmoniously and the profusion of table lamps means lighting is soft and balanced. As she redecorates and experiments, she moves favourite pieces from room to room, to avoid the ‘look’ of each area stagnating. In the dining room, wood and texture star and there’s an aura of calm serenity, enhanced by the views of the surrounding 53 acres of countryside. Pale walls and a varnished wood floor are the perfect backdrop for a pine sideboard housing an array of blue French china, and a pine farmhouse table.


Refreshingly, there’s no lack of surprises, because slavishly following a style is an anathema to Westbrook, who believes decor should continually evolve. So in her kitchen, instead of a rustic French farmhouse theme which would be all too predictable, she’s evoked a sense of drama with a black and white scheme. “When I opted for black cabinets, that was unheard of at the time, but they set off the white countertops and sink perfectly,” she says. “I have various collections of antique dishes, and I swap around each collection so they can all be appreciated. I love to use bold, colourful flower arrangements to bring life to the space.”

INTERIORS

Monochrome continues in the sun porch with black and white striped curtains, and a white vintage dove cage and zebra rug. She's continued this theme in one of the bathrooms, where exuberant Toile de Jouy fabrics contrast with glossy black walls.

still vintage French. "Green and oatmeal bedding was the inspiration for the new look, and this is often a good way to decide on a colour scheme. Focus on one item which always attracts your eye and introduce it gradually on a larger scale," she says.

Nowhere is her enthusiasm for French romance more evident than in the bedrooms. One is totally feminine with her favourite shade of pink used subtly in flowers and paisley bedding, with a bright pink chest flanked by simple white chairs.

Westbrook hopes to inspire others to enjoy the beauty of aged and antique treasures, and to create homes which have their own spirit and reflect their owners' personality.

Another has theatricality, with the bedhead a stunning antique mirror and velvet drapes, which once dressed a stage, providing the backdrop beyond. When she decided to refresh one bedroom she gave it a zingy injection of lime green, contrasted with white mirror frames and plaster busts. It has a fresh modern feel even though its basic ingredients are 18

"The beauty of French style is that it's so versatile and can be adapted to suit. All that's essential is that your home should envelop you in beauty, familiarity and comfort." If you've fallen in love with the style, have your own French affair by sourcing classic touches that will turn your living room into a salon and your bedroom into a boudoir...

INTERIORS

INTERIOR TRENDS Bag a butterfly, splash out on blues, whip up some wallpaper and show a well-turned leg if you want your home to be bang on trend.

TURN BACK TIME Nostalgia is always heightened when times are tough and continues to inspire present-day designs whether it’s vintage style or the fashion for mid-century modern furniture. “Spring is all about reviving eras, from the 1920s through to the 1940s but with fresh interpretations,” says Alice Duggan, head of home buying at Debenhams.

72

“Designer Matthew Williamson creates a bright and eccentric take on a Forties country manor house style, whilst Julien Macdonald has keyed into 1920s art deco style and teamed it with vivid colour.” Debenhams’ own Heirloom collection is an eclectic spin on English style mixing floral, paisley and embroidered fabrics with quirky patterned metal chairs, botanical cushions and eye-catching accessories such as stags’ heads and bookends.


NATURAL WORLD Decor fluttering with birds, bees and butterflies and designs featuring leaf prints reflect our passion to bring the great outdoors into our rooms, as well as a desire to blur the boundary between home and garden.

FLOWER POWER Florals feature in all the major interiors collections, but in tune with our growing enthusiasm for colour and pattern they will be even bolder and brighter in 2013. “This season, the trend for floral vintage pattern will be strong,” predicts Josephine Bennett, senior design manager at Laura Ashley. “Our Palace Garden collection features an unapologetically glamorous design of lush red blooms and teams well with black cabinet furniture, luxuriously upholstered sofas and chairs, and crystal chandeliers and mirrored accessories. “There’s a strong trend for opulence and sophistication and layering of textures in interior.”

“Our Botanist collection draws on our national obsession with gardening and it has a nostalgic element, as well as a feeling of nurture,” says Theo Williams, head of the design studio at John Lewis. “It’s about rediscovering the pleasures of life’s simple things and reconnecting with nature in the digital age. “Natural motifs feature with ladybirds, bees and butterflies on pretty pressed glass and enamelware. Blocks of pale colour are accented by pretty florals.” Bed linen in the range is printed with hand-drawn birds, and knitted throws have a hand-crafted feel with layered patterns and textures. “This look has a casual and informal feel with a mix of vintage-inspired pieces and more contemporary shapes which are unfussy and practical,” says Williams.

73


INTERIORS

DARE TO BARE A pared-back, more masculine style featuring earthy tones and contrasts in textures is one of the strongest and most versatile trends for this year. Interpretations can include industrial style, with a rough hewn unfinished look, or a more streamlined, contemporary approach using wood, stone and distressed leather but softened and warmed by touches of colour from blues to lemon yellows. “One of our key themes is Naturals, a furniture and accessories story of muted tones,” says Sue Roberts, head of design for House of Fraser.

74

“Simple and sophisticated, this trend of earthy browns and stony grey accessories mixed with walnut and oak furniture has a slight retro feel.”


WORK THE WALLS Wallpaper has made a huge comeback over the last couple of years and the choice of designs is greater than ever, ranging from patterns, retro-designs echoing the Fifties or those brilliantly mimicking effects such as stone, brick and wood. “There’s a definite light and dark side to the wallpaper story for spring 2013,” says Paula Taylor, colour specialist for Graham & Brown. “The lighter side is cosy and fresh with country-inspired prints. Patterns are soft, feminine and flowers will once again feature heavily with classical trellis and scroll designs. Colours will be soft and inspired by nature, ranging from duck egg and pale green hedgerow to wisteria and crocus.” That trend contrasts sharply with one which walks on the dark side, featuring warm, dense shades, particularly grey through to midnight black, that may be brightened by flashes of blue or red. “For the darker side, our designs are inspired by folklore and fairy tales and woodland and forest settings,” says Taylor.

75


INTERIORS

CHIC ELEGANCE Delicate detail, elegant period style and a muted colour palette all combine for a feminine-friendly style which is an enduring classic. “One of our new collections is a range of French-inspired occasional furniture and chairs called Aurelie,” says Emma Mann, home and lifestyle design manager at Sainsbury’s. 76

TREND SOURCES “It features upholstered toile de jouy patterns in calming shades, grey and pale blue. This beautifully elegant furniture collection ushers in a classic French style which we think will be hugely popular this year.”

INTERVIEW

ARACHNOTHERAPY Kristian Lees-Bell is a full-time hypnotherapist with a busy and successful practice serving Bournemouth and Poole. He helps people let go of limiting behaviours so they can live happier and more fulfilling lives.

STAGE FRIGHT NIGHTMARE! I’ve always loved singing but it was only until I discovered hypnotherapy I stopped being terrified of being on stage. My ‘stage fright’ started five years ago during my first ever live performance singing ‘Fly Me To The Moon’. I recall the thumping heart, a mind which felt like it was covered in thick fog and an extreme self-consciousness that equalled four minutes of torture. To make matters worse, as I tried to adjust the microphone stand, I sliced the skin off my thumb and had to stem the flow of blood while struggling to remember the words and wishing I was literally, on the moon! A NEW CAREER! I spent the next six months trying everything to conquer my fear of the stage. Deep breathing, positive selftalk, Indian Head massage and even a ‘lucky tie’. Nothing really made a difference. That is until I attended a talk on hypnosis. Here, I learned that my stage fright had just become my mind’s default setting but that I could change it, to a feeling which was much more relaxing and enjoyable. I was able to overcome the anxiety and start enjoying my singing again. In fact I found that I had more control over my emotions and was so much happier and relaxed. One year later I made the decision to become a full-time hypnotherapist. YOU CAN’T HYPNOTIZE ME!

94

My job is all about helping you take better control of your own mind. One of the main tools I use to do this is hypnosis and you’ll probably be surprised to know that we all experience this natural state at least

a few times each day. Guys, have you ever been so engrossed in an episode of ‘Top Gear’ or reading that ‘Shades Of Grey’ book, that you failed to hear your sweetheart call out your name?! In moments like these you are relaxed (well, maybe!) and extremely focused, and this is exactly what hypnosis feels like. It’s a state where artists are said to create their masterpieces and top sports people enter the ‘zone’ Unfortunately we are also often in hypnosis, or ‘trance’ when engaging in bad habits such as smoking or overeating. I have heard so many smokers in my clinic tell me that they just reach for the cigarette as if on ‘autopilot’. And the thing is- they are. In fact we are all on auto-pilot for much of the day. And it’s our unconscious or subconscious mind that is very much in charge. The programmes or mental ‘software’ it runs can be positive and beneficial but can just as easily be negative and damaging. ALL BEHAVIOUR HAS A PURPOSE! No matter how strange it seems, even our bad habits and negative emotions can become hard-wired because at some point they provided a particular benefit to us. Having an intense fear of the water after nearly drowning as a child would make a lot of sense as its the subconscious mind’s way of keeping you safe and away from what was once a danger No matter how hard that person

tries to combat the fear, what often happens is that the old memories, thoughts and emotions come flooding back. THE MONKEY IN YOUR MIND! Trying to control or put a stop to these negative behaviours using willpower alone is much like arguing with a 2 year old child with a tantrum, or having a chimpanzee run amok in your mind! Your subconscious mind possesses the stubbornness of Victor Meldrew and it’s number one concern is keeping you doing the same things that have kept you alive and kicking up to now. HOW CAN HYPNOTHERAPY HELP? Using hypnotherapy I help people make changes in their subconscious thought patterns to create harmony with the conscious mind and therefore remove the fear or negative habit. Since most behaviour is directed by the subconscious it makes a lot of sense to try to make changes to it while a person is in that focused and receptive state of hypnosis. HYPNOTHERAPY MYTHS I love talking about my job but there are some common fears about hypnosis I’d like to address: WILL YOU MAKE ME CLUCK LIKE A CHICKEN? No. Unless you wanted to of course!

Hypnotherapy is nothing like what you may have seen on TV or on stage. People on these shows are usually extrovert ‘performers’ who are simply acting out for the camera and their friends. A hypnotherapy session can indeed be fun, but I leave the entertainment to people like Derren Brown! WILL I ‘GO UNDER’ AND LOSE CONTROL? This is one of the most common myths and again it is totally untrue! You’ll probably hear every single word and if there was a fire alarm or loud noise, you would be out of the door just as quickly as me! In fact, evidence shows that people are even more aware when they are hypnotized. WILL I SPILL MY DEEPEST SECRETS? Hypnosis is not a truth serum so you are free to say as much or as little as you wish! People are just as capable of lying in hypnosis as they are at any other time. CAN YOU GET STUCK IN HYPNOSIS? Again, another common fear I encounter but the fact is that you are no more likely to get stuck in hypnosis than you are getting stuck in a daydream. Once again, you are in complete control of the experience. And believe me, hypnosis is a very enjoyable one at that!


We wanted to put Kristians skills to the test so we asked our readers if any of them had any phobias they wanted to wash their hands of forever and the response we had was phenomenal. We had readers who were afraid of flying, heights, dogs, the dark, snakes, public speaking and the list goes on. We picked Hanne-Lise who like a lot of people had a very big phobia of Spiders, it was that bad that she couldn’t go into a room if there was a spider in there and certainly couldn’t pick one up.

LESS WELL-KNOWN USES OF HYPNOTHERAPY Helping people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome(IBS) better manage the condition and feel less pain and discomfort. Reducing the severity of skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema and even acne. Improving performance in tests, exams, speeches and presentations. Helping people get over bad relationships and be in the right frame of mind to enjoy new ones. Managing and improving symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Hypnotherapy is continuing to become a therapy of choice for a wide variety of problem behaviours. In fact the British Medical Association have recommended its wider use across the UK and doctors are referring more of their patients to well qualified hypnotherapists.

HOW DID YOU FEEL ABOUT SPIDERS BEFORE THE SESSION WITH KRISTIAN ?

Kristian was with me at reptile plus and the advice he gave me before we got there, and during, really did work!

Absolutely petrified, I would normally scream and have to run out of the room until someone got rid of it. If no one was around to remove the spider I would have to close the door and would not enter the room again.

STILL SCARED OF SPIDERS?

We wanted to know if after one session with Kristian she would handle a tarantula so we all popped down to see the guys at Reptile Plus in Southbourne!

WOULD YOU RECOMMEND HYPNOTHERAPY TO BEAT PHOBIAS? For sure! It can be like a ball and chain around your leg, stopping you from doing normal things, I had my doubts anything would work, I was wrong, this has worked!

WHAT MADE YOU SCARED OF SPIDERS? I never used to be, however when I was at boarding school everybody used to freak out every time they saw one, that made me feel that I should be scared too. This just escalated dramatically over time! WHY WAS IS SO IMPORTANT TO YOU TO BEAT THIS PHOBIA? I didn’t want my baby boy, Max, growing up being scared of spiders because I screamed every time I saw one!

With out a doubt I now feel confident enough to be able to remove one from the house myself and not get paralysed with fear at the sight of one!

HOW DO YOU FEEL NOW YOU HAVE HANDLED A TARANTULA? It’s weird, I never thought in a million years that I would ever be able to do that, I feel amazing and quite proud of myself to be honest. I know it probably sounds a bit nuts to anyone who doesn’t have a problem with spiders, but to me I feel I have overcome a big fear in my life.

If you need help changing the way your brain thinks about anything you’re not comfortable with I would give Kristian a call.

NATURAL MIND HYPNOTHERAPY

Whatever it is that people come to see me for, it’s often the case they also enjoy other unexpected benefits such as reduced stress, better sleep, more energy and a greater sense of purpose. Natural Mind hypnotherapy is based at the prestigious BWT Physiotherapy centre in Parkstone, Poole. Hypnotherapist Kristian deals with a variety of issues but has a special interest in hypnosis for confidence and social anxiety, weight loss and stress reduction.

ASK THE PROPERTY EXPERT THE CIRCLE OF LIFE The rental sector is strong and the future for landlords is looking good. Whether you are a reluctant landlord or an investment landlord, if your property is in good order and has been valued at the right price, void gaps between tenancies should be very minimal! We have of course the mass of younger generation, who are struggling to get onto the market ladder, stats indicate the first time buyer being in their mid-thirties if they have help from the bank of mum and dad or late thirties if not, of course, the new ‘help to buy’ scheme is proving to show good signs in the new build sector and in January 2014 we have the ‘Mortgage Guarantee Scheme’ being introduced for properties up to £600,00 which will also help boost property sales and could generate a housing bubble – a whole other story! So… we have the younger generation looking to rent into their thirties and helping the rental sector boom, but we also have the older generation. Retirement age is not as bountiful as it should be, perhaps the thought of selling your home to pay for you care later in life doesn’t have the same importance as perhaps enjoying the fruits of your labour. Whatever the reason, the retired generation are selling their homes to release the equity to enjoy/support them through those years. Some buy smaller properties, some go into rented and some are moving in with their children, to help with grandparent duties and share the living costs. My children are at a stage where they have all flown the nest and I sometimes wonder, (in my mischievous spells), if we were to move in with them in our retirement years how we could get our own back… not turn the lights off, don’t tell anyone if we have used the last toilet roll, put empty cereal boxes back in the cupboards…. Oh and if we were to be pulled up on it we could show the hand and say ‘whatever, chill’. Mmmm, the circle of life.

INTERIORS

OLD ROOMS, NEW TRICKS Home makeovers can be expensive, but getting creative with the stuff you already own needn’t cost a penny. Transform your rooms by following his simple guide to decorative display.

120


Open Minded Mint Side Table £136.00 www.redcandy.co.uk

GET STARTED

Identify key viewpoints in your rooms, such as the view from a doorway, or the space you focus on when you’re seated to eat or to work. “Most rooms will have anything from two to five key viewpoints. Don’t overdo it. Limit the number of displays or arrangements so you can create contrast between

busy display areas and calmer non-arranged spaces,” advises Rundle. Take into account static elements like windows, room dividers and large pieces of furniture, and essentials like lamps, bookcases and storage. Then work out the decorative items you’d like to add. 121


INTERIORS

SCALE STORY Being brave and selecting objects which are larger or smaller than would normally be expected is an easy way to bring wit and drama to rooms. “Avoiding too much repetition of size - most rooms are dominated by middle-sized furniture - is essential. Greater extremes of scale around those pieces will shake up a room and it’s a trend reflected in modern design, from jumbo-size Anglepoise floor lamps to floor rugs inspired by postage stamps,” he says.

OLD VERSUS NEW Most of us have a mix of antique and contemporary items in our homes, but for success, combine the oldest with the youngest to achieve cross-generational visual drama.

122

“Nothing highlights the freshness of the new as much as the patina of the antique, equally the excitement of the ‘now’ can be used to throw into relief the romance of the past,” says Rundle.

“Contrasting the clearly vintage and the overtly modern is a great way of adding a jolt of visual electricity to any group or display. “Take some clues from the period of your home to create a visual link, by all means, but try to avoid the feeling of a museum or period piece by deliberately introducing some elements which don’t conform.”

How to do it: Upscale a conventional object, like a small plant pot, by replacing it with a metal bucket containing not one but four plants. Increase drama by placing four similar vases together and it will super-size the display. Place the largest item next to the smallest and keep an eye out for the unexpected. For instance, a giant image of a diamond, normally a small object, is more surprising than a giant landscape.


MAKE A PLACE Commonly in interiors, there’s an interplay between horizontal lines and vertical lines. Think of the upright vertical of a standard lamp beside a horizontal chest of drawers, explains Rundle. “Avoid categorising all decorative objects and accessories as verticals, and

all items of furniture as horizontals, which again is too predictable,” he advises. “It can be hard to find decorative objects with a strong horizontal presence that’s why I love model boats and planters - but their rarity makes it worth the hunt.”

COLOUR CRUSH Many of us are nervous about using colour but it’s a key tool in successful rooms. Rundle suggests a simple route to success is simply taking the temperature of shades and dividing them into two categories - ‘hot’ or ‘cold’ - and then playing with contrast. “All colours can be placed somewhere on the temperature scale,” he says.

“The warm end of the spectrum is dominated by pinks, reds, oranges and yellows, taking in metallic golds and neutral woods, while the cool end is dominated by purples, blues, greens including metallic silvers and neutral monochromes.”

BRIGHT SPARKS

ELEC-TRICK IN THE HOME

Some energy saving tips & tricks from local business Elec-trick.

Keeping you and your family safe in the home is obviously something you don’t plan to take chances on, but it’s not always easy to know if you’re dicing with danger.

At Elec-trick we strive to give an excellent service at a fair and reasonable price. Much of our work comes from personal recommendation and we have managed to get quite a relationship with many elderly customers who I have been told feel we are fair and do our very best to do what we say we will do. Here’s some free advice for the coming Winter months.

We often stick to the wiring we’ve inherited when we move into a new home because having a property rewired is a major upheaval, and can be very expensive. Unless the sockets, light switches and flexes are obviously outdated, it’s also hard to tell if the wiring needs to be redone. A good place to start checking is the fuse box - if it has rewirable fuses, for example, it’s in need of an update because modern fuse boxes don’t use fuse wire (however, fuse boxes are sometimes replaced without the rest of the wiring being updated, so you can’t rely on this as an indicator). Other indicators of old wiring you can look out for include sockets with burn marks, single rather than double sockets, sockets mounted on skirting boards, and surface-mounted cables. The only way to be really sure if the wiring is safe though, is to get a qualified electrician to test it.

INEXPENSIVE ENERGY SOLUTIONS For this, and if your home does subsequently need rewiring, make sure you use an electrician registered with one of the Government’s competent-person schemes, such as NICEIC, as they can self-certify that their work complies with the law. The key thing is to get a completion certificate so you can prove that the electrical installation is safe and legal, something often needed when you sell or rent out your home.

FAST AND FREE ELECTRICITY Cutting back unnecessary energy use is an easy way to keep your hard earned money in your pocket. Here are some suggestions you can do at home, at absolutely no cost to you. Let the sunshine in. Open drapes and let the sun heat your home for free (get them closed again at sundown so they help insulate). Rearrange your rooms. Move your furniture around so you are sitting near interior walls - exterior walls and older windows are likely to be drafty. Don’t sit in the draft. Keep it shut. Traditional fireplaces are an energy loser - it’s best not to use them because they pull heated air out of the house and up the chimney. When not in use, make absolutely sure the damper is closed. Before closing the damper, make sure that you don’t have any smoldering embers. If you decide not to use a fireplace, then block off the chimney with a piece of rigid insulation from the hardware store that fits snugly into the space (dampers don’t shut fully without some leaking). Eliminate wasted energy. Turn off lights in unoccupied rooms. Unplug that spare refrigerator in the garage if you don’t truly need it - this seemingly convenient way to keep extra drinks cold adds 10-25 percent to your electric bill. Turn off kitchen and bath-ventilating fans after they’ve done their job - these fans can blow out a house-full of heated air if inadvertently left on. Keep your fireplace damper closed unless a fire is burning to prevent up to 8 percent of your furnace-heated air from going up the chimney. Shorten showers. Simply reducing that lingering time by a few minutes can save hundreds of gallons of hot water per month for a family of four. Showers account for 2/3 of your water heating costs. Cutting your showers in half will reduce your water heating costs by 33 percent.

124

Choose ENERGY STAR® Products. Replace incandescent light bulbs with ENERGTY STAR compact fluorescent light bulbs, especially in high-use light fixtures. Compact fluorescent lights use 75 percent less energy than incandescent lights. Wrap the hot water tank with jacket insulation. This is especially valuable for older water heaters with little internal insulation. Be sure to leave the air intake vent uncovered when insulating a gas water heater. Savings up to 10 percent on water heating costs.

UNDERFLOOR HEATING MATS Use appliances efficiently. Do only full loads when using your dishwasher and clothes washer. Use the cold water setting on your clothes washer when you can. Using cold water reduces your washer’s energy use by 75 percent. Be sure to clean your clothes dryer’s lint trap after each use. Use the moisture-sensing automatic drying setting on your dryer if you have one. Put your computer and monitor to sleep. Most computers come with the power management features turned off. On computers using Windows, open your power management software and set it so your computer goes to sleep if you’re away from your machine for 5 to 15 minutes. Those who use Macintosh computers look for the setting in your Control Panels called “Energy Saver” and set it accordingly. When you’re done using your computer, turn it off (see next tip). Do not leave it in sleep mode overnight as it is still drawing a small amount of power. Plug “leaking energy” in electronics. Many new TVs, VCRs, chargers, computer peripherals and other electronics use electricity even when they are switched “off.” Although these “standby losses” are only a few watts each, they add up to more than 50 watts in a typical home that is consumed all the time. If possible, unplug electronic devices and chargers that have a block-shaped transformer on the plug when they are not in use. For computer scanners, printers and other devices that are plugged into a power strip, simply switch off the power strip after shutting down your computer. The best way to minimize these losses of electricity is to purchase ENERGY STAR® products.

The energy efficient ribbon under floor heating mats are ideal for all applications from single rooms to full house heating. As a primary heating source the flat ribbon creates additional space by negating the need for radiators. The amorphous metal under floor heating is the newest technology on the market which has in turn super ceded other heating technologies. Due to the advanced engineering and robust design the AHT underfloor heating ribbons come with a 15 year warranty compared to 10 years from its nearest rivals. The flat ribbon under floor heating is so slim line it can be fitted directly under any floor covering including carpet as a primary heat system. The flat ribbons are wide and close together meaning that they do not need to heat up to high temperatures, in fact the ribbons can heat a room with working temperatures as low as 26 – 28 degrees. It can be installed under carpet, laminate, wood, slate, ceramic, stone, vinyl, travetine. as the only heat source.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

DIY EXPERT

SAFE AS HOUSES

Get those jobs done with a little help from ‘Big Al; our resident DIY expert.

THIS WEEK: How to protect your home from burglary by having secure front as well as back doors. Upgrading security is one of the most important home improvements you can do because there’s nothing worse than being burgled, but where do you start? A secure front door is, of course, essential. Most front doors are wooden and so are usually straightforward for DIYers to make more secure, but if you’re not sure what you’re doing, employ a locksmith or carpenter. A good door is made of solid wood, with three 10cm hinges. The frame should be screwed or bolted to the wall every 60cm and can be strengthened by fitting special bars to make the locking points (a London bar) and hinges (a Birmingham bar) sturdier. While the door and frame are important, because entry can be forced around the frame, fitting high quality, British

Standard locks is the most obvious way to improve security. You need two locks - an automatic dead-latch cylinder lock and a five-lever mortice deadlock with boxed staple. When shopping for a mortice lock, you’ll see that some offer more security than others, so buy the most secure you can afford. If in doubt about the type of locks you need, check with your home insurer, as they’ll have minimum standards. To reinforce a mortice lock against forced entry, fix metal plates to the area around it on both sides of the door. Fitting a door chain is a simple but effective security measure and if your DIY skills are up to it, add a peephole as well. Hinge bolts prevent the door from being forced off its hinges and should be fitted if the door opens outwards. If you have both an inner and outer front door, don’t skimp on security for the inner door because once a burglar has gained entry to the outer one, they may not be seen breaking in to the inner one, so don’t make it easier for them. Glazed or semi-glazed doors

security features of modern ones. The back door needs as much protection against break-in as the front door, if not more so because it’s usually out of sight. Many of the same rules apply to wooden back doors (including French windows) as to front doors, but the central lock should be a British Standard five-lever mortice sash lock with boxed staple. It’s also a good idea to have mortice rack bolts or surfaced-mounted press bolts as secondary security. Sliding patio doors should be fitted with patio-door locks with at least three locking points. To stop the doors from being lifted up and taken out, fit an anti-lifting device - it’s not hard to do. can be made more secure by fitting a decorative metal grille on the inside, or putting security film on the back of the glass. When replacing the glass or buying a new glazed door or side panels, make sure the glass is laminated and fitted from the inside, then the beading around it can’t be removed from the outside to gain entry.

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK HEDGEHOG GUTTER BRUSH Autumn’s almost here which means it’s only a matter of time before leaves start falling, but there’s an easier way to keep your home’s gutters from getting clogged than climbing a ladder and clearing them out. The Hedgehog Gutter Brush is an innovative solution to the problem. A polypropylene brush on a steel-wire spine it’s pretty much indestructible and requires no maintenance. You simply lay it in the gutter - it moulds to fit the shape - and leave it there. It means leaves and other debris can’t build up, but rainwater can still get in as usual. 10-year guarantee £14.99 www.hedgehoggutterbrush.com 134

The security of UPVC front doors isn’t easy to improve yourself, so don’t try - just make sure you invest in a secure door (from a reputable supplier) with a high quality multi-point locking system. Metal doors should also be secure without modifications, but in both cases, old doors may not have the

Bi-fold doors, which are an increasingly popular alternative to French windows and patio doors, should come with good built-in security measures. Check with the retailer or manufacturer if you’re concerned about this - while a wall of glass is stunning, it’s never going to be as secure as good old bricks and mortar.

WHETHER WEATHER IS IMPORTANT TO YOU IT DOESN’T MATTER?

The B200 Outdoor Living® concept is new from Broadview. Enjoy relaxing in your garden all year round with the flexibility of a covered or uncovered outside space you decide. You may want to cover your hot tub or entertain friends by evening in a pleasant ambient atmosphere that a B200 Outdoor Living® system will provide. The B200 Outdoor Living ®provides shelter and can cover small to very large areas thanks to its modular designed frame allowing an unlimited amount of systems to be coupled together side by side. B200 also has a unique louvred open and close slatted roof tilting system so at the touch of a button it can be a waterproof and solid roof one minute, yet completely open the next. Likewise the optional remote control side screens will roll down or up to enclose you fully, partially or to leave

you open to the elements according to the weather as you wish. Even sun and rain sensors can automate this for you. Because there is no glass there is also no cleaning required or the worry of a fallen roof tile or tree debris falling and damaging it. Optional LED light strips can integrate into the aluminium roof slats for evening use along with heaters meaning you are kept warm and dry and even free from insect bites. Installing is really quite simple and our expert team will undertake the whole process for you from start to finish. You may want your B200 to be free standing away from the house or perhaps connected to your house wall, such is the flexibility of the B200 framework that multiple fixation methods allow installation to be quite simple and a complete installation is completed usually in a single day.

MAKE THE MOST THIS AUTUMN

BUMPER HARVEST The warm summer months might be over, but the abundant wild berries, plentiful apples, and juicy tomatoes they helped create can make it feel like the sun is still shining.

142

It’s unlikely keen gardeners can manage to eat all this bumper produce immediately though, which is where the art of storage comes in. Maincrop potatoes and onions will keep well in a cool shed or garage, while garlic should be placed in a cool room in the house. All three should be free of soil and perfectly dry before storing. Onions and garlic can be strung and hung up, while potatoes will be quite happy in paper or a hessian sack, kept in the dark to stop them from sprouting. If you have blackcurrants, redcurrants and gooseberries, these are perfect for jams, partly because they contain plenty of pectin, the ingredi-

ent that makes jam set. With jams or jellies, it is important to sterilise the jars and lids for 10 minutes in boiling water before using them. Most fruits and vegetables will last up to 12 months using this method. Blackberries and other wild berries have been abundant this year, thanks to last year’s wet summer and this year’s dry one, and are easy to freeze (although avoid freezing strawberries as they become mushy). Just select the best fruit, spreading the berries in a single layer on a clean tray and put it in the fast-freeze section of the freezer. Once it’s frozen, transfer it to bags and return it to the freezer. If you have too many ripe tomatoes, try drying them in the oven, placing them on a tray at the lowest setting for several hours with the oven door just ajar. Alternatively, skin them by placing them in a bowl of just boiled water, leaving them there for a few minutes,

then removing the skin and blitzing them into a puree which can be a base for any Italian passata, which can be frozen. Unripe tomatoes can also be transformed into delicious green tomato chutney, there are umpteen recipes to be found on the internet. Cucumbers spring to mind when we think of pickling, but many vegetables and fruits can be preserved in this manner including peppers, cauliflower, apples and pears. Peas and green beans should be blanched (dunked in boiling water for several minutes, then plunged into cold water and dried off) before freezing, while courgettes freeze satisfactorily in prepared dishes such as ratatouille, and pumpkins can be made into preserves using lemons, sugar and mixed spices. Root vegetables such as carrots, parsnips, beetroot and celeriac can generally be left in the ground until required, although try to dig a few up


BEST OF THE BUNCH JAPANESE ANEMONE Don’t confuse the low growing, brightly flowered anemones you find in late spring with Japanese anemones, which bloom from late summer until the first frosts of October. A. japonica (A. hybrida) stands 60cm1.2m (2-4ft) high, producing saucer-shaped flowers in white or pink with a central boss of golden stamens. Good varieties include A. x hybrida ‘Honorine Jobert’, a tough, late-flowering plant on strong stems carrying single white blooms, which flower for up to eight weeks and reach 100 cm (3ft) in height, and A. ‘September charm’, a slightly smaller pink variety which reaches about 60cm (2ft) in height. Japanese anemones will grow in any well-drained garden soil in sun or semi-shade. They look great in the autumn border alongside asters and chrysanthemums or can be used in front of shrub roses and large shrubs.

GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT FUCHSIA BERRIES If you grow fuchsias you may have noticed that after the flowers come shiny purple berries, which are actually edible. All fuchsias produce berries, although some varieties have much better tasting fruit than others. The berries are produced as the flowers on the plants mature and fall off, leaving berries which can grow to almost an inch long on some hybrids and species fuchsias, or to just half an inch on the miniature ones. Single-bloom fuchsias produce more fruit than double-bloom fuchsias. Fuchsia berries can taste very peppery to very sweet, almost like a kiwi. The berries of Fuchsia procumbens, the groundcover fuchsia, are among the sweetest. Other good varieties include F. regia subsp. regia, which produces black, sweet berries on trailing stems, and F. 'Jingle bells', which produces enormous berries which look like cherries. Late summer and autumn are good times to harvest fuchsia berries. Pick the berries when they are soft and squishy and test them by tasting them to make sure that they are sweet. Botanist and BBC presenter James Wong, author of Homegrown Revolution, says they are delicious scattered over Greekstyle yogurt and honey, made into jam or thrown into a muffin mix like blueberries. to store in a cool place before winter sets in and the ground becomes too hard to harvest them easily. To store gluts of apples and pears, you’ll need to handle them carefully, placing them in a room with a low, even temperature, good ventilation and a moist atmosphere such as a cellar. If you are putting apples in your garden shed, wrap them in newspaper (this slows the shrivelling process and isolates rots), put them in boxes, stack them in a cool spot under insulation (such as straw or polystyrene sheets) and cover with polythene. Check them regularly for signs of disease and remove any which have rotted. Pears prefer slightly drier and warmer conditions and are best not wrapped or stacked.

WHAT TO DO THIS WEEK: IN YOUR GARDEN Make the most of those few sunny days left this Sumer and get out in the garden to tend to your plants and shrubs. The more time we spend before Winter sets in the easier it makes the maintenance in next Summer.

1 2 3 4

Leave tomatoes on the plants until the weather turns, to allow them optimum time to ripen.

5 6 7

Take hardwood cuttings from roses, choosing healthy stems of the current season’s growth.

8

Sow hardy annuals like calendula, godetia, larkspur and candytuft outside where you would like them to flower.

9

Leave nets over brassicas to stop pigeons feasting on them. Reduce the watering and feeding of greenhouse plants. Trim hornbeam, beech, Leyland cypress and thuja hedges, if you haven’t already done so.

Root cuttings of lavender directly into gritty soil outside or in a cold frame. Pick crops at their best including marrows, runner beans, ridge cucumbers, spinach, sweetcorn, beetroot and salads.

Plant tubers of Anemone ‘De Caen’ and ‘Saint Brigid’ at intervals to extend their flowering next spring.

10 11

Sow poppies where you want them to flower next year.

12

Give autumn green crops a light dressing of general fertiliser hoed into the soil around them.

Lift Lilium regale clumps and re-set, planting them about 15cm (6in) deep in well-drained soil improved with compost and grit.

HI AUSTIN. WE’VE HEARD A LOT ABOUT AUSTIN BREWER OVER THE YEARS. CAN YOU TELL US WHAT YOU SERVICES YOU OFFER? Wrinkle smoothing treatments, Dermal Fillers, Skin Needling, Face peels, Skincare ranges and advice all of which are offered with a free no obligation consultation YOU’RE ONE OF THE SOUTH COASTS MOST EXPERIENCED COSMETIC PRACTITIONERS, WHAT PROMPTED YOU TO START UP AUSTIN BREWER IN 2004?

AUSTIN BREWER Austin, owner of Austin Brewer talks to House Magazine about what it is like to be one of the South coasts most experienced costmetic practitioners and the plans for the future.

close due to this very situation and now they have lost their business due to someone else’s negligence. It’s all well and good for these providers to have a great website and social media coming out of their ears! but what are they actually telling you,? when you see familiar words like “Harley Street” or “Clinics held in London” etc what does that mean?...absolutely nothing but unfortunately people still seem to give credit to these statements, anyone of you reading this can hire an office in Harley Street or anywhere in London in fact - but that doesn’t mean to say you’re in better or indeed safer hands. If their London based clinics are so successful, why are they advertising it in Bournemouth publications (when they are actually looking to book clients in for the Bournemouth clinic, not London?) - there’s no relevance to it all, do they need that association to attract their customers rather than their own merit and skill? It’s misleading for consumers in a world that has little guidance in this area, much, much more information needs to be made readily available to people, not because we all want

their money, but so they can make an informed decision, and listen, at the end of the day if you’re offering the treatment that is right and safe for your clients and not trying to fool them, they’ll always come back, and that is priceless. WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO ANYONE SEEKING FACIAL AESTHETIC TREATMENTS? Firstly check that the practitioner is registered with the Independent Healthcare Advisory Service (their website is www. independenthealthcare.org.uk/ treatments-you-can-trust (the name kind of says it all!) you’ll be surprised how few there are in the country, yet alone in your local area! Of course word of mouth is great also (this is how I get nearly all of my business) - at least you can see results first hand, but of course everyone’s face is different and therefore treatment will be completely unique to them, no clones here!, who wants to lose their identity and look just the same as everyone else?! But my biggest piece of advice is

to go to someone who is covered by the Independent Healthcare Advisory Service, this service has been set up purely for the consumer and their protection, so use it, and then you’ll know you’re in safe hands and will have piece of mind throughout any of your treatments Finally anyone who would like further information please feel free to call me on the number below and i’d be more than happy to arrange a free no obligation consultation with you - even if it’s just about SPF!

Margaret, 75, living with cancer My day didn’t start too well. Everything had got on top of me and I felt really low. When I called the Macmillan Support Line, I didn’t know where to start. But somehow they helped me find the words. Just talking honestly about how I felt was such a relief. Now I don't have to cope with the bad days on my own.

PUB GRUB NEVER TASTED THIS GOOD Forget peanuts and pickled eggs, pub grub has had a makeover thanks to chefs like Tom Kerridge who is now sharing some of the recipes that have won him two Michelin stars. Pub food used to mean crisps, pork scratchings and nuts. If you were very lucky, it might run to a toasted sandwich. Thankfully in recent years there’s been a bit of a revolution and nowhere has that been more pronounced than at Tom Kerridge’s pub, the Hand & Flowers in Marlow, Buckinghamshire. Kerridge and his wife Beth took over the pub in 2005, and inside a year won their first Michelin star, plus a handful of other prestigious prizes. Since then, they’ve grown their kitchen staff from three to 16 and become the first pub to be awarded two Michelin stars, while Kerridge has become a recognisable face thanks to appearances on The

Great British Menu, Saturday Kitchen and various shows on the Good Food Channel. Now he’s releasing a book, Proper Pub Food, and there’s to be an accompanying BBC TV series too. “The book was originally going to be a Hand & Flowers cookbook,” explains Kerridge, but that all changed when the BBC heard what he was doing. “The book and series are all about dishes that are inspirational - great British produce cooked simply at home,” he says. “It’s kind of like the starting point - the finishing point being where we’re at in the Hand & Flowers. The flavour profiles and some of the ideas are similar. There’s a big

crossover in taste combinations.” The recipes include a spectacular chicken and celeriac dish, baked in hay and cider, which Kerridge insists everyone should try to make themselves. “It’s the perfect Sunday lunch dish for two,” he says, “with the chicken taking on all the hay and cider flavour, and the celeriac going all buttery and fluffy. I love it.” Another favourite is salmon cured in gin, a decidedly English twist on the Scottish classic involving smoked salmon and whisky. Here are three recipes from the book, including the aforementioned hay-baked chicken, for you to try

RECIPE

Asparagus with duck egg yolk dressing and parsley Ingredients 300ml water 100g butter, cubed 20 asparagus spears, peeled and the woody ends of the stalks broken off 4 duck egg yolks 100ml white wine vinegar 50ml water 1tsp English mustard powder 1tsp sugar

½tsp salt ¼tsp smoked paprika 2 hard-boiled duck eggs, shelled and finely grated 100ml double cream 2tbsp capers in brine, drained and chopped 2tbsp finely chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves, plus extra leaves to garnish

Method Pour a couple centimetres of water into a saucepan over a high heat and bring to the boil. To make the dressing, whisk the egg yolks, white wine vinegar, water, mustard powder, sugar, salt and smoked paprika together in a heatproof bowl that will sit on top of the boiling pan without touching the water. Place the bowl on top of the boiling water and whisk until the mixture is creamy and doubles in volume. Fold the grated hard-boiled eggs into the dressing, then add the double cream then the capers and parsley. Remove the pan from the heat and keep to one side. 150

To cook the asparagus, bring the water and butter to the boil in a frying pan over a high heat, stirring to dissolve the butter. Add a pinch of salt then place the asparagus in the pan and simmer for three to four minutes until tender. Remove the asparagus from the pan and drain on kitchen paper. Divide among four plates, drizzle the dressing over and garnish each plate with parsley leaves. Serve immediately, with the extra dressing on the side.

Hay-baked chicken and roasted celeriac Ingredients

Method

1 chicken, about 3kg 6 fresh bay leaves 2 bulbs of garlic 600ml cider or scrumpy 1 celeriac 3tbsp rapeseed oil 150g butter 1 bunch of thyme 1 lemon, halved 2tbsp malt extract 600ml chicken stock Salt and pepper to taste 1 small bag of hay (Tom recommends asking a friendly farmer - it will taste better than buying it from a pet shop)

Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas Mark 6. Place the chicken on top of a piece of muslin, large enough to wrap around it, and season with salt and pepper. Put the bay leaves on top of the chicken. Break apart the cloves of garlic from one bulb, but don’t peel them. Give them a bash with the back of a knife and sprinkle them over the chicken. Wrap the chicken tightly in the muslin, then put it in a large flameproof casserole pot. Pack hay all around the chicken and pour over half the cider. Cover the pot and place it in the oven for one hour, checking occasionally that the liquid hasn’t evaporated. If it needs topping up, use the remaining cider, and then some hot water, if necessary. Pierce the muslin with a knife and stab the chicken in the thigh joint to check if the juices run clear. If not, return the pot to the oven for a further

five minutes. Afterwards, leave the chicken to rest in the pot, covered, for 45 minutes. Meanwhile, peel the celeriac and rub it down with a green scouring pad to make it very smooth and rounded. Heat the rapeseed oil in an ovenproof frying pan over a medium heat. Add the celeriac to the pan and fry for 1015 minutes. Once the celeriac’s nicely browned, add the butter to the pan with the thyme and the remaining garlic bulb, cut in half through the equator. Baste the celeriac in the butter, then place the pan in the oven for 25-30 minutes until it’s tender all the way through. Baste again three or four times during the cooking time. When the celeriac’s tender, remove the pan from the oven, give a good squeeze of lemon juice over the top and season with salt and pepper. Do

not discard the garlic and thyme. Remove the chicken from the pot and place it on a chopping board. Pass any liquid from the pot through a fine sieve into a saucepan. Add the malt extract and bring to the boil. Add the chicken stock and continue boiling until the liquid reduces to a sauce/gravy consistency. Adjust the seasoning, if necessary. Unwrap the chicken from the muslin and remove the garlic and bay leaves. Use a blowtorch to brown the skin. Serve the chicken whole on a platter, with the whole celeriac and the gravy in a jug. Add the thyme and garlic from cooking the celeriac as a garnish, if you like. Let diners carve the chicken and cut the celeriac themselves. 151

Buckholme has been part of the Parkstone community since 1939 and we are proud to be able to showcase this fantastic new building and to continue pupils’ successes well into the future.” Buckholme Towers School and Nursery in Commercial Road, Parkstone provides education for children from two years and nine months up to 12 years old.

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

INTENT ON CAMPING Road safety charity the IAM offers these tips on preparing your car for a camping holiday: You should do a thorough check of your vehicle before you set off on what could be a lengthy journey to your campsite. Include tyres, windows, mirrors, lights and engine fluids. Make sure that your washer fluid is topped up and your wipers are in good working condition – you’ll need these when your vehicle inevitably gets covered in mud. You should also carry some wipes to keep your mirrors clean. Be sure to check your tyre pressures, and consider that you will be carrying extra weight in your vehicle – tyres on a full and heavy car usually need higher pressures. You’re likely to be carrying a lot, and should pack as much of this into the boot as possible to keep items secure and out of the way. Make sure anything packed into the vehicle does not obstruct you view. Do not place loose objects on the parcel shelf as they may obstruct your view and are likely to move about and cause a distraction. In the case of sharp turning or emergency braking, loose objects can cause more damage than you might think. “Camping in the great outdoors can be great fun, but travelling to your campsite with a car full of uncomfortable passengers complaining about the oversized camping stove they have on their laps can put a dampener on things. Don’t take any unnecessary luggage as, as well as causing discomfort to your passengers, the extra weight will increase 158 your fuel consumption.

TOYOTA RAV4 ROAD TEST The RAV4 range starts at £22,595, and there is a 2.0-litre petrol engine and two diesels, a 2.0 litre offering 122 hp with front-wheel drive and the 148hp 2.2 litre which is four-wheel-drive.

When a well-established model is revised and upgraded, it is almost always made larger too - and that’s exactly the situation with the new Toyota RAV4. The latest version of this popular 4WD model has been bulkedup to boost load capacity and provide more occupant space. No doubt Toyota did a lot of customer research before enlarging the car, but the new model is certainly less agile than previous versions, writes NICK FLETCHER.

It was this latter model in midrange Icon trim which I was testing last week, priced at £26,500, though the test model had Toyota’s Touch And Go sat-nav system with voice control and advanced connectivity, a £1,200 option. Top speed is 118 mph, the 0-60 mph time nippy at 9.6 seconds. Fuel consumption is impressive at 49.6 mpg combined. On the road, the new RAV4 grips well, has precise steering and delivers a comfortable ride. The diesel unit is a tad louder than some, but is smooth and responsive, and the 6-speed manual gearshift is slick to operate.

The revamped exterior of the car is classy in appearance and makes a strong premium style statement. Inside, the cabin design is rather subdued, but scores well for ease of use, with wellplaced switchgear. The seating is excellent, and there is a lot of occupant space front and rear. The boot space scores highly too -547 litres with the rear seats in use, and expandable to a mighty 1,746 litres with the seats folded - and they do go virtually flat, which aids loading of bulky items. Standard kit on this model includes multi-airbags, traction and stability controls, auto lights and wipers, cruise and climate control (dual zone), rear view camera, Bluetooth, USB port, alloy wheels, fog lights and daytime running lights. There is also a power-operated tailgate ( about eight seconds to raise or lower).
