DANISH MID-CENTURY: Get the look: Danish mid-century modern - We all have decorating styles that we like when we see them in a magazine, on television or in a movie. Subconsciously, something about a look resonates with us, even if we’re not giving it much thought. As an interior designer, I’ve spent year’s learning about the history of design and architecture and how to create a cohesive interior from a mixed group of elements. The ability to break down and analyze the elements of a style or period of architecture is very important, especially if you want to get the look yourself on any budget. By Linda Merrill, Networx.

ALIX KUNKLE: Music can save your mortal soul -- If there's one thing that gets people out in a community, it's music.
