Just In: Wood-Fired Hot Tub

I get press releases for some strange products. This one, however, I love. The Tubmarine, is a new wood-fired hot tub that launched in the UK ;ast month. It apparently heats up within two hours. It’s made from 80% recycled materials, including sustainable wood called Kebony that was developed in Norway, and is 100% recyclable. It seems ideal for New England, right?

ARTmonday: Michele Poirier-Mozzone’s Underwater Artworks

Massachusetts-based artist Michele Poirier Mozzone  will be showing “Fractured Light,” a series of oil and pastel paintings of figures under water, at Paul Dietrich Gallery at CambridgeSeven in Cambridge, Massachusetts, March 2, 2020 – May 29, 2020.

Poirier-Mozzone’s underwater artworks were inspired by watching her daughter swim in a pool. She was intrigued by the beautiful quality of the light and distortion of the figure. According to an article in Cape Cod Life, Poirier-Mozzone shoots underwater with a GoPro camera to capture inspiration images. She infuses her underwater paintings with color, rather than retaining the predominantly blue tones of the original situtions.

The Taunton-born artist, who attended Emmanuel College in Boston, spends summers in Falmouth and teaches at Rhode Island School of Design’s Continuing Education Program and the Providence Art Club.

Exhibition: March 2, 2020 – May 29, 2020
Artist Reception + Talk: March 19, 2020, 5:30-7:30 pm
Location: Paul Dietrich Gallery at CambridgeSeven
1050 Massachusetts Ave # 51, Cambridge, Mass.

Scheming: Master Bedroom Refresh from Serena & Lily

Ok, last post about Style Carrot’s partner in design Serena & Lily. It’s a big deal, so it’s worth the effort, for me and for you. If there’s anything you’ve had your eye on, now’s the time.

During the Serena & Lily Thank You Event  almost everything is 25% off (Sale items, gift certificates artwork, and bikes are the only exclusions.) This is the brand’s biggest and best sale of the year. Just use code THANKFUL at checkout.

In addition to the items I posted on Thursday and Friday (books, tray, towel), I ordered a few larger pieces, including the Granada quilt for our bedroom in Boston. We just got back from Connecticut and spread it on the bed. It immediately brightened the room, which is mostly white with neutral carpet and wallpaper. If I were upgrading everything, I might do something like this:
