Banksy’s newest work uploaded to his website.
"We praise people for being “naturally” smart, too, “naturally” athletic, and etc. But studies continue to show, as they have for some time now, that it is generally healthier to praise schoolchildren for being hardworking, than for being naturally gifted. We know now that to emphasize a child’s inherent ability places pressure on that child to continue to be accidentally talented, which is something that is hard for anyone to control. When the children who are applauded for their natural skills fail, they are shown to take the failure very personally. After all, the process of their success has always seemed mysterious and basic and inseparable from the rest of their identity, so it must be they who are failing as whole people. When students are instead complimented and rewarded for their effort and improvement, they tend to not be so hard on themselves. When they fail, they reason, “Well, I’ll work harder next time.” They learn that they are capable of success, rather than constantly automatically deserving of it, and they learn simultaneously that they are bigger and more complex than their individual successes or failures."-Kate of Eat the Damn Cake, The Stupidity of “Natural” Beauty (via commovente)

one of my all-time favorite museums I’ve ever been to, it is honestly a surreal experience

Rufty Custom Built Homes and Remodeling, Raleigh, NC.
Hello Anon. This is the award winning residence of the NCSU Chancellor. It has received a ton of press, for ex. here: North Carolina Design. In answer to your question, Rufty Homes graciously supplied that the wall oven, microwave and fridge are all by Thermador. So, good eye on your part. : ) In my opinion, the question of ‘too much stainless’ is a matter of balance in each situation. I agree that in this kitchen, with the space and the abundance of millwork, the stainless is not overwhelming. I hope that helps, G
