Design
House Tour: An abandoned summer camp becomes an eclectic family home. I love the wallpaper and artwork in this house!

10 Common Interior Design Mistakes. "Nothing screams middle class mediocrity more than a matched set of furniture!" Definitely agree with this!

Finances
How do you compare to this "state of spending" report? "60% of Americans report that they won’t be ready if an economic downturn strikes."

How paying off all my debt changed my life. "We joined a minority of Americans—about 20%—who don’t owe anyone anything. It's an exclusive club, but there's hope that it's growing. About half of Americans indicate that being debt-free is within reach, and 25% say it’s the new American Dream, according to a Credit.com survey."

Productivity
The most succesful creative people constantly say no. "Creators do not ask how much time something takes but how much creation it costs. This interview, this letter, this trip to the movies, this dinner with friends, this party, this last day of summer. How much less will I create unless I say “no?”

Here's exactly how long your work breaks should be. "DeskTime, a company that makes an app that tracks people’s computer usage, recently discovered something curious: when they looked at the top 10% of productive workers, they found that the workers took, on average, a 17 minute break after working for 52 minutes."



Misc.
Rare Walt Whitman letter, written for a dying soldier, found in National Archives. "The rare Whitman “soldier letter,” one of only three known to exist, was discovered last month by a National Archives volunteer who is part of a team preparing Civil War widows’ pension files to be digitized and placed online."
