Featured Tranquilista: Elizabeth MacCrellish is the founder and director of Squam Art Workshops. When she is not sprawled across a window seat dreaming up new projects, she can often be found somewhere out on the mountain wandering about with her three dogs. Or, you might find her scribbling and posting snapshots here.

How can I indulge my artistic side this week?

Signature Style: TranquiliT is a line of layers in rayon made from organic bamboo. We are locally sewn and plant 150 trees each month while also donating a portion of proceeds to Nest and Tranquil Space Foundation. Our featured piece is the lounge short. J’adore!
