Bespoak Interiors-Delivering Unusual Storage

Windswept Tree

Based in South Cerney, Bespoak Interiors offers something unexpected. If you have ever been bored by the conventional style of shelving, this company delivers a well presented solution. It would be rare indeed to think of a time where you have been more interested in the shelf than the book stored on it. Bespoak Interiors trigger this reaction.
In the Workshop

With shelving units in sizes that can fit in crevices, to feature pieces in a room, there will be an option for you that makes sense. The units come in the form of branches or trees. This means that depending on your needs, you can have a bespoke storage solution in your house guaranteed to get visitors talking.

Though bespoke options are available, there are set designs which are popular and practical. These can be individualised through the way the wood is treated after it is cut into shape. Some people prefer the bark to be left on, others indulge themselves in smooth edges. What suits you best? You can discover more options on the website.
Raw Material
When Bespoak Interiors began, people would collect the pieces on site. These days, all of the units can be mail ordered and the shelves are easy to self assemble. This flexibility allows the customer to have a choice over how their purchase is personalised.

You can have smooth edges like this, or keep the bark.
Dan Lee is the designer and craftsman. Having taken up a unit in South Cerney, Dan will soon have a show room that is open to guests. Make sure to keep your eyes open for developments, and pop in!

How to Change Years of Habits in 21 Days-Elite Article IV

Working and living the ethos...

Carrie-Jean Mason has changed her mindset, her nutrition and her movement to transform her appearance...

Carrie began working at Elite in the office. But it wasn’t going to be about simply sitting down for 8 hours a day! Agreeing to take on the 21 Day Kick-Start Programme, everything was new for Carrie. As a girl, Carrie had found out she had allergies to bread and milk, but as she grew older, Carrie started to ignore this and found herself attracted to foods with these ingredients. Whilst consulting with Mac, it was pointed out to her that growing up doesn’t necessarily mean growing out of allergies. With that fresh emphasis on listening to your body, Carrie managed to eliminate these negative aspects of her diet.

The results caused Carrie to feel cleaner inside and out, and it wasn’t just a feeling. Following the 21 Day Programme she became leaner, lost weight and felt the change in her clothes being looser. All this, and Carrie had never exercised with a purpose. Adding 2-3 sessions a week, the results were quite strong and positive, however, it wasn’t plain sailing.

To achieve the best from your body, sometimes there is a price to pay. In Carrie’s case it was kicking caffeine, sugar and wheat all at once. This was a transition period where she felt the need to nap in the afternoon, and also experienced some headaches. The cravings were fierce, with desire for chocolate and other quick fixes constantly niggling.
Be patient and the results will show. Carrie's transformation.
 In the end however, Carrie managed to complete the 21 days and also had the impulse to try it again. Her top food for the programme was crispy kale, where kale is baked in the oven with various flavours, and eaten like crisps, without the guilt. Persevering past her 6th week at Elite, Carrie lost a full stone and felt much less bloated than before.
