Home decoration: Three walls to use wallpaper

Wallpaper is one of the most versatile ways of decorate your home because it can add colour, texture and pattern all in one. Best of all there is an amazing variety of designs to choose from to suit all tastes and budgets; Bold patterns, Paintable designs, Metallics and even Handmade.

The three ways to use wallpaper are;

  1. Use it as a feature wall – With just one feature papered wall, it’s easier to be more adventures and choose a bold design which will really make an impact.

    Paintable wallpaper
  2. Choose two contrasting wallpapers – You can add interest to your walls by hanging two wallpapers in different designs, perhaps one striking and one subtle pattern.

  3. Match wallpaper with fabrics – The trend is to use the same design on both your wallpaper and fabrics, either in a similar colour, a contrasting shade or complimentary pattern

Brits to brace for disruption during Storm Atiyah

A yellow weather warning from the Met Office is in place for “very strong winds” which are expected tonight and into Monday morning which could cause disruption with coastal winds of more than 70 miles an hour.

It comes as Storm Atiyah is set to arrive in the UK with wind speeds of around 50mph predicted inland, with coastal areas being affected by gusts of up to 75mph.

There could be large waves offshore in Wales, the South West of England and potentially the North West as a result of the high winds.

It’s likely to be gusty across the Pennines, but lower levels could also be affected, too.

Temperatures are likely to be in single figures.

The Met Office warns there could be some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport, with train services and buses potentially affected, too.

Parents on the school run and commuters are warned to take care in the high winds on Monday morning.

Home renovation: Love thy neighbour

While you’re not required by the UK Building Regulation to consult your neighbours about your proposed renovation, its a good idea to keep them in the loop.

It is normal practice to record the state of neighbouring properties both before work starts and at completion, and you are responsible for making good any damage.

Discussing your plans with your neighbours can also ease the way if you need a party wall agreement. In England and Wales, work carried out on a part of your property that adjoins your neighbours’ must comply with the Party Wall Act 1996. The Act covers work that might have an effect on the structure or support function of any wall on the boundary line, including garden walls.

10 practical ways to motivate yourself to success

Its your life, your future and your opportunity to take. However, your success in life, business and career depends on your vision and passion to succeed.  From time to time your enthusiasm wanes when faced with challenges, and there’s no one else to pick you up and get you going again.  Below are ten ways to motivate yourself.

  1. Get a plan – If you haven’t got a written plan, it’s time to get one and always read and use it to remind yourself why it is you’re doing all this for. We all lose sight of the vision from time to time – bring it back to life.
  2. Breakdown your plans –  Challenges can be overwhelming, breaking down your plans into smaller tasks and conquering them one at a time is the best practical solution.
  3. Plot your course – Use your broken down plans and plot strategies that link them together to arrive at your ultimate goal. Treat it like a puzzle, where you take the smaller pieces and put them together to form the bigger picture.
  4. Place it on the wall – Get a visual picture of it on your wall where you can see them. Graphs and pictures are better than words.
  5. Check your health – Losing motivating might be is a sign of physical or mental illness/fitness. Check it out and do something about it. It’s easier to be motivated when you’re fit and well.
  6. Ask for or support others – If you’re married, in a relationship, at work, have family or friends, it has to be their challenge too, ask for support. And if possible support others as this will motivate you.
  7. Check your champions – When you’re feeling down, it’s good to check on your progress with those you look up to. You might be surprise to see that you’re currently better than you thought.
  8. Use some fresh air – Are you feeling overwhelmed? Open the window or go out and breath in fresh air. Marvel at the natural world and the beauty of its creation, it might put things into perspective.
  9. Take time out –`If you’re feeling demotivated you need some time to yourself. Clear space in your diary and focus on your needs rather than the needs of others around you. You need you to take care of others.
  10. Celebrate – A joyful soul is a healthy soul and a source of strength. Always find cause to celebrate. When you hit a target have a party even if it’s just you alone. Mark each success along the way.
