Safe and Sound
By Emily Anderson, ASID
Not surprisingly, our kids health and safety is number one on the priority list. When designing interiors, it is crucial to keep our kids' well-being in mind. Here are just a few products that will keep you (and the kids) breathing easier
LOW VOC PAINT
Benjamin Moore's formula Aura Paint paint. It is a low VOC paint that performs like a dream.
Let's face it, kids like carpet. It's soft and comfortable and it can cushion a fall. When selecting carpets for kids, LiLu often looks to wool. Wool is a non-allergenic fiber. It doesn't promote the growth of bacteria or dust mites. And it doesn't give off harmful emissions. It is also a beautiful product and easy to maintain.

Keep only the best next to your child's skin. Consider organic cotton for kid's bedding. It not only feels great but it can be machine washed. Check out these beautiful fabrics from F. Schumacher and Co.
