With the many organic, nontoxic and sustainable items available, it's easier than ever to create a chemical-free room for your new baby or babies -- and there's no skimping on style either!
Take, for example, this serene-yet-modern nursery designed for triplets by Marsh & Clark Design at the 2010 San Francisco Decorator Showcase earlier this month. Known for using sustainable furniture and products in their designs, Marsh & Clark chose toxin-free, hand-crafted cribs made of sustainably-harvested hardwood and Medite (a sustainable, formaldehyde-free, FSC-certified recycled fiberboard), coated in zero-VOC water-based white lacquer which is perfectly safe for teething babies. They also selected 100% wool, un-dyed carpets and non-VOC paint on the walls. Just add an organic crib mattress and sheets, and you’re pretty much good to go. Your baby and the environment thank you!
