60-Minute Makeover star John Amabile on how home and design has been his haven during lockdown

frank lampard

HE became a household name through hit TV series 60-minute Makeover when he brought families’ dreams come true with home transformations.

And as people spent more time at time at home during lockdown, interior designer John Amabile was able to give a little back to his followers and fans. He set up a facebook forum which has become an inspiring and supportive community for budding interior designers and a place to share tips, advice, laugh at disasters and help people try to avoid them.

“Going into lockdown I think, like many people, I wondered how we were going to get through this,” said Amabile. “I am lucky I had my garden and studio to retreat to rather than just stare at four walls. I wanted to do a project to keep me sane and I think people saw their house and home and wondered what they could do themselves. Changing

Keeping a modern sensibility calm in a bedroom makeover

frank lampard

Jenn O’Brien’s clients, a young professional couple with a 4-year-old daughter and two dogs, adored their late 1960s saltbox home in Boxford. However, their bedroom, which is located in a later addition, lacked character. O’Brien removed the carpet to reveal wide pumpkin pine floorboards and painted the walls Benjamin Moore Super White, creating a shell that’s both bright and warm. Taking cues from the property’s farm-like setting, she developed a subdued palette punctuated with black for contrast to achieve the dreamy feel they desired while keeping the space grounded. “It’s now the serene getaway they asked for, and it showcases their personality,” she says.

McALLEN – It didn’t take David De Leon and his wife long to talk about their health and fitness options when COVID-19 reared its ugly head in South Texas.

“My wife and I are very active in exercising and being healthy and fit,” the 30-year-old McAllen resident said. “When everything started happening it became more of a challenge to go to the gym, so for safety we decided that working out from the house was much safer than putting ourselves in any type of medical risk at a public facility or a gym.”

The couple purchased an FT2 Functional Trainer, a home gym that has a design which integrates an Olympic bar and weight stacks. De Leon said the benefits from the machine and being able to work from home were quickly realized.

EU citizens fear being locked out of homes, jobs, and healthcare by Brexit settlement scheme design flaw

EU citizens have launched a campaign for the government to give them physical proof of their right to remain in Britain after Brexit – amid fears that they could be locked out of homes, jobs and healthcare by technical problems.

The Independent reported this week on how the Brexit settlement scheme’s “digital-only” design is already causing problems for EU nationals, some of whom are already being held up in airports and facing delays in moving house.

But campaigners worry that the scheme’s flaws could have even more serious consequences, denying EU citizens living in Britain their rights to homes, jobs, and healthcare – all of which require them to prove their right to live in the UK.

Under the scheme, EU nationals are not given an ID card or other document as proof of residence once they are accepted, but have to rely on an
