Tone Soup procures a variety of quality boutique guitar pedals, mini amps, accessories and power supplies that will provide greater depth to to a guitarist’s tone.

It should be said however, a common misconception is that, if you receive a professional pest control or treatment service then all your pest problems will disappear immediately. Rather, pest management can sometimes require multiple visits or most importantly regular treatments, for example yearly treatments in your home or office to effectively eradicate pests. In this edition our founder and CEO Ali Ghafoor from A.M.G Pest Management shares common pest treatment options and what to expect from your next pest treatment. Pesticides can be grouped according to the types of pests they will target and exterminate or according to the chemicals in them and their methods of applications. Such as: Insecticides – Insects Herbicides – Plants Rodenticides – Rodents (mice and rats) Bactericides – Bacteria Fungicides – Fungi Larvicides – Larvae It is important to determine the correct pesticide for your pest problems to avoid unnecessary time, effort, and financial loss. Common treatment options: Depending on your location, property size, demographics, environment and other personal factors. Your technician will usually determine a best fit treatment for your pest problem and site. It is simply not a ‘one size fits all approach’ (we will explain what we mean further). After an initial meet and greet, a technician is expected to carry out a risk and safety assessment to determine how best to address the situation at hand, for example, if there are small children crawling in the house then a ‘blanket floor’ spray may not be an option or nearby native bees, pets and so on. During your consultation with your technician, it is important to highlight your observations, such as times of activities of pests, locations (kitchen, bathroom and so on), behaviour and any other particulars activities you may have noticed, for example sounds or smell. This can significantly help with making an informed decision in addressing your pest problem. With this information a technician can determine which range of treatments and methods they deem most effective and efficient for your job. Aerosol: Ready-to-use aerosols are self-contained and pressurized gas. When used pesticide is released through a fine opening. Commonly used in smaller areas and openings. Fumigants: Fumigants are pesticides that aim to deliver the active concentrate or ingredient to the site of the target pests in the form of a gas, or commonly referred to as ‘flea bombs’. Liquid Formulations or Spray: Usually contains a few active compounds and used against common pests in most settings (residential, commercial, industrial, or agricultural) and adaptable to many types of application methods, from small to larger sprayers. Gel: Pastes and gels are mainly used in pest management for ants and cockroach control. Active concentrate is usually about 5%. Commonly applied in kitchen and wet areas or around appliances. Dust: Most dust formulations are ready-to-us and usually contain a low percentage of active ingredient (usually 10% or less by weight). Commonly used in cracks and crevices or hard to reach areas. Commonly used in roof void and weepholes.    Granules: Granular formulations are like dust formations, in that they ready-to-use, however they are usually larger and heavier. Similarly, they are not water-soluble and not intended to be mixed with water. Active ingredients range from 1% to 15%. Can be sprinkled in target areas, for example garden or lawn area.    Baits: Can be used as solid or liquid form and used to target pests as food-based baits. Traditionally used in bait stations for rodents or ready-to-use bait stations to target ants or cockroaches. In conclusion, pest management and control can sometimes be a quick process. However, at times it can take multiple visits, different applications, and modified treatment methods to achieve the desired outcomes. Nevertheless, benefits of targeted pest management in your home or office means treating pest problems at the source of the problem for a more effective and efficient outcome.

Justine Wilson, leading property stylist and founder of Vault Interiors predicts that interior styling in 2021 will come back to nature. Whether it's broken stone to natural elements of rattan and cane and the use of recycled materials, next year it all about embracing raw-looking designs with crisp white interiors. Justine Wilson says, “There has been a major shift over the past 12 months to getting back to nature, looking for ways to be more sustainable and generally becoming more minimalistic when it comes to styling. For many that feeling of nature combined with neutrals creates a sense of calm and prosperity, at least it does for me!” Justine’s top five interior trends for 2021 include: 1. Broken stone/crazy paving: This will be a big trend, it's where slabs of stone like terrazzo, terracotta, marble, or slate tiles are broken into random pieces and laid in a haphazard way creating a natural-looking pattern. It’s an earthy look that’s was popular in the 80’s, and that I see it used in modern boho-style homes, hotels, and retail spaces. 2. Natural elements: Rattan, cane and woven materials will continue to dominate, especially in furniture and lighting design. These raw-looking natural designs will be paired with crisp white interiors. 3. Rendering interior walls: The use of a sand bag creates a rustic effect similar to what you would find in the Greek islands or externally like on a Spanish revival style home. Think white or beige as the colour of choice, but this will be applied inside in main living areas and bathrooms. 4. Curves and arches: These will be very popular, especially in furniture and joinery design. New build homes will have arched doorways and windows as key design features. 5. Recycled timber beams: These will be big, I see these being integrated in ceiling design to create the look of a rustic warehouse or farmhouse style but paired with modern colours and joinery. They will also feature in external architectural elements such as pergolas or outdoor breezeways. “When it comes to interior accents colours, these will remain inspired from natural elements and earthy tones so think olive tones, rust tones, soft blues and beige and sand tones,” adds Justine.

Justine Wilson’s 2020 Christmas styling tips and trends 2020-11-04T03:28:03Z justine-wilsons-2020-christmas-styling-tips-and-trends Seven weeks to go until Christmas! With many households putting up the tree early this year, Justine Wilson Founder of Vault Interiors Property Styling shares her trends and expert tips to get the house ready for the festive season. According to Justine, there are three key trends we should expect to see throughout homes across the country including, a cooler toned Christmas, a twist on the classic elegant palette and a return to a more rustic, cabin, farmhouse style of decorating. “Like many others, I have already set up and styled my home for the festive season. With the year we’ve all had its time to bring some joy and fun back into our lives and let’s be honest, it takes a bit of effort to put up the decorations, so why not enjoy them for longer!” said Justine. Justine believes that duck egg blue, mint and navy will be the big accent colours this year. Think cooler-toned hues paired with white snowy, frosty flocked trees, garlands and wreaths with the main metallic colours for this scheme being silvers and whites. Justine says, “This is a more glam approach to Christmas styling, so I see things like white feather boa’s in place of standard tinsel and finishing materials like sequins and pearls and glitter being prominent on the ornaments.” She predicts that burgundy plum and magenta will also be popular tones for decorating, a twist on the traditional bright cherry red usually seen in Christmas accessories. “This look is a nod to a more classic palette and will be very elegant. I see this being paired with dark green or real trees, lots of gold accents with serving ware and ornaments also. Plus, you can still bring in glittery elements like gold deer statues, brass candlesticks and mercury glass décor to create a cohesive look,” said Justine. When it comes to the style of decorating, expect to see a return to a more rustic, cabin, farmhouse style. Justine explains, “Think of big leafy garlands in evergreen tones, realism in the greenery mixed with twigs, grapevine and pine cones. This look will be very paired back and simplistic, think a green pre-lit tree without many ornaments or very sparse ornaments, lots of runs of green woodland style garland on tablescape and lots of candles. Almost a turn of the 20th-century approach to decorating!” Justine’s top 3 stylist tips for making the most of your decorations: 1. Ensure you “fluff “out your tree if it's an artificial one: This means fluff out the individual branches when you set up your tree. They get squashed and crushed when in the box or being stored so it’s imperative to get it feeling full again. It’s a tedious process but makes your tree feel more realistic and will hide any empty gaps. My suggestion – wear gloves it can be scratchy! 2. Place inexpensive baubles deep into the tree: We often forget to style the back that you don’t see, or the inside of the tree so remember to do so. Lumping all the ornaments on the outer branches will make the tree feel bare and unbalanced – so if you want a full looking tree, place levels of ornaments within the tree. This will create visual depth and interest if there are many layers. 3. Add extra sparkle: There are many wonderful prelit trees if you choose an artificial tree, but sometimes they don’t have the sparkle/ twinkle function, just flat LED lights. I recommended adding a pack of battery operated twinkle lights in addition to your normal lighting, this gives the tree added dimension, movement and the twinkling feature reflects light around the tree, bringing the ornaments to life, and creating a more magical appearance overall.

Held virtually due to Covid, the 18 month old agency group, founded by Adrian Wilson and alongside business partners Craig Donohue and Kate Sommervelle, were awarded for their innovative approach to the Sydney City apartment market. Ayre Real Estate launched in June 2019, with offices in Sydney’s Hyde Park and Millers Point precincts with a promise to deliver an apartment focused agency for the city and inner-city apartment market. Earlier this year they were also awarded Best New Office of the Year in the national Real Estate Business Awards. Adrian Wilson says, “We’re thrilled to have taken out the Innovation Award this year. Our approach to the Sydney City property market is unique and being apartment-focused really allows us to provide our clients whether they be vendors, buyers, landlords, or tenants with the highest level of service and expertise in the area. I’m really proud of what our growing team has been able to achieve to date and of course be recognised by our industry peers. Here’s to a bigger and better 2021!” Adrian’s top five predictions for 2021: Clearance rates to stay strong (circa 70-75%) provided stock remains around the same levels. Government stimulus and interest rates to be attractive and spur buyers to act. Improvement of Covid cases linked to more people out and about looking at property as an investment option. Less income being spent on travel and entertainment so more disposable income being spent on renovating or upgrading. Market stabilising until the end of job keeper and mortgage relief.
