It goes without question that new parents want to create the safest possible nursery for their new addition. You’ve purchased a JPMA-certified crib, you’ve baby-proofed the space to the umpteenth degree… but have you given thought to the type of paint used in baby’s new room? Experts recommend using Low VOC, Zero VOC or natural paint choices. Interior paint high in VOC can cause some pretty scary side effects!
Never fear. In this environmentally-friendly day in age, Low VOC, Zero VOC and natural paints available at retailers across the country. A people.com exclusive reports that new mom Molly Sims chose to paint her nursery in Valspar’s Zen Garden, a Zero VOC paint. Other readily-available options include the Serena & Lily line of paint (low VOC) and Harmony by Sherwin-Williams (zero VOC).
