EarthCam To Livestream Seaside Heights Polar Bear Plunge

Tomorrow, thousands of people will make a mad dash into the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean just off the coast of Seaside Heights, and it’s all for a great cause. EarthCam will be livestreaming the annual Polar Bear Plunge, and you can be a part of it!

The Polar Bear Plunge is held each year to raise money for Special Olympics New Jersey, a non-profit organization that provides free year-round sports training and athletic competition for more than 25,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities. Last year, nearly 7,000 swimmers took to the icy waters and raised more than $1.9 million, setting a new Polar Bear Plunge Record.

C.R. Interior Designs on Pajama Lounges

Caitlin Rutkay of C.R. Interior Designs asks: What’s more cozy than sectional seating? How about one located in a “pajama lounge!”  

According to HouseBeautiful.com, pajama lounges are taking over houses everywhere! If you haven’t heard of a space like this before, it’s essentially an upstairs living room that’s very private and the perfect place to gather as a family after rolling out of bed in your (you guessed it) pajamas.

This concept is part of a growing trend of living spaces moving upstairs, where it’s more secluded. “They’re designed to be a place where the family can gather and hang out away from the high-traffic areas of the home,” Paul Fischman, principal designer at Choeff Levy Fischman in Miami.

Whether pajama room or main living space, sectionals are a staple of family space planning. The common features Caitlin’s clients look for are stain resistant fabric and a frame deep enough for napping.

These images show a custom “L” with detached chair and then a navy hardwearing fabric option for a kids gaming space:
