Inspired by Earth Day, I’ve put together this relaxing, gender-neutral and eco-friendly modern nursery inspiration board. We want our children to be able to live in a healthy environment both on a global scale and in their homes and the spaces they will occupy as they develop and grow.
For so many of us, while we’re expecting our first child might be the first time we start to think about the materials, toxins and chemicals that we use in our homes. When we moved into our new home while I was expecting baby #2, this meant I was also looking for safe and healthy paint, not just for the nursery walls, but throughout the house. We found the best options we could by looking for low-VOC paints, but I wish I had found Lullaby Paints at the time. With eco-friendly packaging, a non-toxic formula and the ability to order reasonably priced sample paint pouches (4 for $10) before you commit to a color, this was JUST what I was looking for.
For this Earth Day nursery I selected Celadon, a fresh, easy-to-use pale green that says spring, and all my other eco-friendly finds fit in perfectly with it.
