Hi, I’m Russell, I create Living Spaces.
I work with busy people who love to invest in their homes. Typically my customers work hard for long hours and what spare time they have they like to spend with Family. They like to come home to a quality end result, but really don’t want the aggravation of sorting it all out themselves. They get fed up with other suppliers promising the Earth, but only delivering disappointment. I also work with discerning interior designers, property developers & architects, who need the Living Spaces in their projects to be designed and fitted well, full of innovation and delivered on time. My rural studio is just outside Alton, in Shalden near the Golden Pot. Kubo // Kitchens – Bedrooms – Bathrooms

Life gives us lemons all the time but I’m here to say that I might be exactly what you need! When my husband suffered a stroke we were left in a very precarious financial situation. Thankfully I discovered Forever Living and have flourished ever since. I’m more than just a Forever Living agent, I help others in my situation build an income by helping people live healthier lives.
If you are struggling to earn a full-time income because life has given you lemons, think of me, I can show you how I quickly built an income stream from part-time flexible hours. Happy to share a cuppa and tell you my story, which is partially explained here. See you soon!

Scott runs the Home Solutions Group who deliver home automation and electrical installations to home owners across the South of England.

With the right technology installed home automation can help with assisted living needs, to keep the elderly safe and well in their own homes for longer. Or helping frazzled mums leave the house and know that all the doors and windows are shut, the lights are all off and the alarms are armed.
Scott said “We set up the Home Solutions Group to give home owners peace of mind, from ensuring their home electrics are safe to delivering home automation packages that improve lives. We treat every customer with the same care and attention, whether it’s checking your electrics are safe or delivering a home care automation package to an elderly couple”.

Paul is a highly experienced Construction/Fit-out Project Manager, bringing over 30 years experience of delivering building works in a wide range of different areas, and started GBI 2.5 years ago.
Have you ever had one of those projects, where it was delivered late and overbudget? Usually this is down to poor planning and understanding of what your project objectives were in the first place. GBI understand every project is different so we always take the time to understand what your objectives are, identify the risks and look at how these can be mitigated. This means we can be realistic in budgets and timescales and provide clients with greater accuracy for planning and can help value engineer where appropriate.
We have successfully delivered projects for clients such as Mitsubishi Motors, where we delivered a concept retail store that was challenged by a simple design being overcomplicated by unusual material specifications by the design team. Most of all though we love solving problems, taking ‘difficult’ projects and delivering them in a way no-one thought possible.

Having lived in sunny Greece for a few years, I returned to Britain, in beautiful rural Hampshire and soon realised that it’s always best to be prepared for rain!
Having been in the rainwear business for a number of years in the UK, I worked with a few British milliners who made exquisite waterproof rain hats. The light bulb moment occurred when I thought how great it would be to gather all the best British ladies and men’s rain hats under one umbrella ! And so begun the Rain Hat Collection in 2017.
The Rain Hat Collection is a family run business and we pride ourselves on handpicking stylish rain hats made by British milliners. We represent a talented and creative select number of milliners who make rain hats of the highest quality. They are beautifully made, super chic, lightweight, packable for convenience and waterproof.
We are on the quest to prove that rain hats can be stylish and don’t have to be cheap plastic rain hats that you buy on the spur of the moment, as the heavens open!
Check out our website and find the perfect rain hat for you!
