Modern Office Decor

So excited to share my modern decor office reveal!  If you’ve been following me on social media then you know that I’ve been a busy little bee over here redoing my office for a bit.  I knew when I moved into our house last year that I wanted to redo it. 

The room had carpet and I wanted hardwood floors.  It also had some old blinds, needed a paint job, new light fixture, etc.  As you can see I had big plans for this little room!  I couldn’t wait to get started.

Love how bright and airy my modern office turned out!

 

As you know with anything it takes longer than you think.  But I’m so happy it’s finally done!  I really wanted a space that felt open and airy- hello I live in Washington and the dark days are a real thing.  I also wanted it to feel a little boho, while at the same time feeling chic. I like clean lines and simplicity but also a little flair here and there.  

 

before and after office decor

This was right when we moved in last November. We hadn’t painted it yet or done the floors. There were no closet doors either!

 

I think I nailed it!  Every time I walk into my office I just breathe a little easier, and feel a calm and peace.  Spaces have a serious effect on your outlook.  I knew I wanted to feel inspired and motivated when working, and so I needed to create a space that would embody that.

This was after we painted the office last January, but hadn’t put in new blinds or done anything else.

 

I’m sharing everything.  From the eco/green flooring I used to the desk, blinds, bookcase, shelves, EVERYTHING.  I really wanted you to be able buy anything that I used.  

 

modern marble shelves

When I saw these modern marble shelves online I knew they would be perfect in my office!

 

Flooring-

This was the thing that took the longest to decide on.  I really wanted something that wasn’t going to off gas toxic chemicals and also looked good.  Plus, I didn’t want it to be hard to install.  

I wanted something my hubs could install and not have to hire someone.  Well, I found the perfect flooring!

It’s from Green Building Supply.  Green Building Supply is your one stop shop for all things natural and sustainable for homes.  I talked with several different eco experts there and landed on the EcoFusion Solid Drop and Lock Strand Bamboo Flooring.  Not only does the flooring have a zero VOC finish, meaning it will not off-gas toxic chemicals but it also doesn’t have any added urea formaldehyde in it’s adhesive.  

 

Bohemian office reveal

I had to have a fiddle leaf fig tree in my office and the mirror was such a perfect touch as well.

 

I looked into EcoFusion and was really impressed with it’s overall sustainability practices and natural standards. This is a quote about EcoFusion taken from Green Building Supply’s website.

Unlike most bamboo importers, EcoFusion is vertically integrated which means the company grows, harvests and fabricates all of its own bamboo. As a result, EcoFusion insures that its bamboo is plantation-grown to maturity of five-six years for maximum hardness, utilizing no pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers.

-Joel Hirshberg, Founder of Green Building Supply

 

I loved knowing that the company takes great lengths to ensure their products are safe.  In installation you don’t have to use any glue at all.  I loved knowing I could just use the drop and lock method and avoid glue all together.  My husband and a friend installed it in one afternoon and it only took them 4 hours!  I was so impressed with how easy it was to work with and use.  There was no smell either!

It looks so nice and bright and airy.  Just what I was going for.  The color I chose was Frost.  I wanted the floor to be light wood.  Especially since the room isn’t huge.  I wanted it to feel bright and open.  I had ordered a sample for $6.95 before choosing that color. It helped to see the color before ordering all the flooring.  Love that Green Building Supply offers samples!

 

Modern office reveal

Love how everything came together, even the small office supplies!

 

After it was finished I was so amazed with what a difference it made!  The total cost was around $1,100. That also included the Moisture Block that we put down on the floors before installing the bamboo flooring.  The Moisture Lock helps to block moisture and protect your floor. 

For a non-toxic flooring that is not only easy to install, doesn’t smell and looks beautiful- I can’t recommend it enough!  I really wanted something that I could share with my audience that wasn’t over priced or unreasonable, plus that was also easy to install.  This is it!

 

modern bookcase

This modern bookcase was perfect since it wasn’t too big and had doors.

 

Here is the rest of my office reveal!  

 

bohemian light

This bohemian light is everything and really makes the room pop!

 

 

I have linked each item for you to find easily.  

  1. Shelves- I wanted something that looked chic and classy and had a bit of gold in them.  I’m a gold girl all the way and love little pops of gold here and there.  These also are large enough to fit a decent amount of products on- haha, something this product junkie needs for sure!
  2. Desk- I wanted a desk that had a good amount of desk space.  The last desk I had was so tiny.  I also wanted it to be white or something light- as to keeping with the light and airy theme I wanted.  I also wanted it to not be huge and hide my cords.  I can’t stand when cords are everywhere- pet peeve.  Anyways, after a lot of online searching I found one I love!
  3. Chair- I wanted a swivel chair.  I had one before and I love how easy it is to move around.  Especially once I had hardwood floors I knew I would want one.  I wanted one with clean lines and somewhat modern.  
  4. Faux Fiddle Leaf Fig- I knew I needed some greenery in my office.  I also knew that real ones were going to be tricky with lighting and I just didn’t want to deal with that.  So I opted for some faux plants.  This one is the perfect size and such a good price!
  5. Faux Palm Tree- I love how palm plants spread out a little more.  Really taking up some good space.  This was perfect to add some more color to the room overall.
  6. Acrylic Calendar- I love having a huge calendar where I can see all the things.  But I also wanted it to look cute and be practical.  Well I found the perfect one!  It’s mounted on the wall and can easily be written on with dry erase markers but doesn’t look like a plain white board.  Plus, it has some gold detail which makes me swoon!
  7. Bookcase- I saw this online and knew it would be perfect in my office.  I wanted a bookcase that would close so my girls wouldn’t be rummaging through it.  I also liked the clean lines.  I got the color grey but I noticed they’re out of stock of that color right now.  But they do have the shell color which I love as well!
  8. Diffuser- I love a good diffuser, especially when I’m working.  This one is made of ceramic and not plastic and is so chic looking.  It just blends in so nicely which is what I wanted.
  9. Printer- This might sound silly but I didn’t want a black clunky printer in my office.  I wanted something that would feel seamless and transition well.  I looked for a long time but finally found one that not only offered what I needed from copying, and printing but also looked so chic.
  10. Large Basket With White Flowers- I wanted a basket where I could put boxes from blogging if needed, and also put my blanket in as well.  This one is not only the perfect size but also super cute! I didn’t find the exact one online but this one is super cute too and similar colors.
  11. Seagrass Basket- These come in a set of 3.  I only used the medium one in my office but it works perfectly with the plant and theme.  
  12. Pieced Triangle Frame- This frame is super cute and just the pop of color I needed on my desk.
  13. Mirror- I wanted a mirror in my office for sure!  It’s nice when I’m doing videos or trying on new products.  This one screamed boho chic, and fits so well in the space.
  14. Bamboo Shades- We had installed all new shades in the house knew I wanted to do the same for my office.  I love how these let some natural light filter in a little.  But also are a statement for the overall feel of the room too.  I chose the Half Moon Bay color.
  15. Blush Stapler- It sounds silly but there’s always random things I want stapled and of course I wanted a cute stapler.  This one hits all the marks!
  16. Blush Tape Dispenser- I can’t tell you how often I want tape!  I’m so excited to finally have a tape dispenser. Makes like a little easier.
  17. Letter Sorter- I’m a sucker for a letter sorter.  Keeps my life sane and organized.  This one is both functional and chic!
  18. Blanket- I saw this blanket at the store and it was game over.  Not only super cozy but also went perfect with my overall theme.
  19. Light- This light fixture was the first thing I bought for the office! It really started the whole theme for me.  I just loved how it felt a little boho and also added a bit of drama and overall statement to the room.  Still my favorite thing about the space!
  20. Paint- We painted it last year.  If you want to read up on the non-toxic paint we used and why- read my full blog post on it here. I still love the paint so much!

 

What do you think of how it turned out?  Let me know your favorite element!

What To Do When Your Child Has Multiple Chemical Sensitivities

What To Do When Your Child Has Multiple Chemical Sensitivities

In episode #21 we are learning what to do when your child has multiple chemical sensitivities from Steph Duford.  Steph Duford is from Wisconsin.  Born and raised a Midwest girl. Her husband, Larry and her have a 5-year-old fun and enthusiastic son named Frank. Recently, after 16 years, she left her profession as a hair stylist to be a full-time SAHM (stay at home mom) and homeschool Frank. There hasn’t been one defining moment that has made her passionate about lifestyle and wellness but a compilation of many.  Knowledge is her power. Steph loves to learn and research…often times to a fault. By personality, she is passionate, strong willed and determined. Her biggest tool has always been self navigation. At 1 year, her son Frank was diagnosed with multiple anaphylaxis to both food and environmental allergies…36 to be exact. He’s truly the bravest and most inspiring human she knows. It has been her mission to focus on healing him from the inside out and there really is no limit to how far her and her husband will go for her son’s health and freedom.

Along with many allergies, she’s also become well versed in chronic atopic eczema and multiple chemical sensitivity. The saying, “The best detective at work is the mother of an ill child” is 100% accurate! One thing she very much prides herself in is how her and her family create normalcy. They focus on experiences that can safely be improvised and work around limitations while still building childhood fun/memories. Steph’s mission is to share experiences that have shaped her in hopes to reach and help others. Her biggest satisfaction is helping others build a happier, healthier lifestyle for themselves and their families.

Best Organic Pillow

Best Organic Pillow

Have you been searching for the best organic pillow like I was?  Well, if you have don’t worry, I’ve got your back!  I’ve tested out many options and I’m here to report on my favorites.  Finding a pillow shouldn’t be a hard process, but it can be if you don’t know where to start.  I take the guess work out so you can find your perfect pillow, minus the toxic load.

So why should you avoid conventional pillows?  

Well, for starters most pillows are either filled with polyester, or cotton.  Polyester contains a toxic chemical ethylene glycol, most commonly known as the deadly substance in anti-freeze.  Cotton contains harmful herbicides and pesticides- many are carcinogenic.  If you think about the amount of time you spend sleeping on your pillow it adds up to a toxic load.  Even memory foam pillows are a toxic recipe since they’re off gassing VOC’s(volatile organic compounds).  As you sleep you’re breathing in all those harmful substances.  These VOC’s have been known to cause a host of problems from irritation to the throat, nose, eyes, headaches, nausea, damage to liver, kidneys and nervous system, some of the organic compounds have even been found to cause cancer in humans.  No thanks!

Besides the toxic load it puts on your body, investing in a conventional pillow also puts a toxic load and burden on the environment.  The herbicides and pesticides are then thrown back into our environment where they end up in our streams, lakes and rivers.  Then they make their way into our water streams.  I think sometimes people forget that when you purchase something you are casting a vote for the kind of world we live in.  Good or bad- it’s up to us to make our voice heard!

As you can see picking up a new pillow requires a little more thought than just going to Target.  Whenever I think about detoxing my home, I really have to stop and think about what kind of impact this will have on my health.  In my opinion, pillows are pretty high on the priority list.  Since you spend so much time sleeping, the toxic load of your pillow adds up.  I want the peace of mind knowing what I lay my head on at night is not negatively impacting my health.

Something to think about…

I’ve seen “organic” pillows popping up in Costco or Target and other major retailers that aren’t necessarily organic.  Allow me to explain.  Marketers are catching on and realizing consumers want to see the word organic.  So they’re putting organic on anything and everything these days.  I’ll see “organic” pillows at these stores for $10 or $15- which isn’t possible if it’s truly organic.  What they really mean is the cotton sheet encasing the fill of the pillow is organic but not the actual fill of the pillow.  Which can be hard to know unless you’ve done your research.  Bottom line: don’t be fooled by marketers and always ask lots of questions!  If it seems to good to be true it often is.

So what materials should you look for in an organic pillow?

  • Organic Cotton- Make sure it is certified GOTS ensuring it has gone through testing to vouch for it’s pureness. Cotton is a firmer option, but not the firmest.  More of a medium firmness.
  • Organic Wool- Naturally flame resistant and pest resistant.  Also, naturally microbial.  It’s also comfortable in the summer and winter because of it’s insulative properties.  Some people can be allergic to wool, so something to consider.
  • Organic Buckwheat- These pillows are made from buckwheat hulls.  They offer firm support for your head.  They are great at circulating the air, which helps you stay cool throughout the night.  They’re also naturally resistant to pests.
  • Kapok- It’s a natural fiber that comes from the Ceiba Tree in Central America.  This is a vegan option for those who like a down pillow. It’s fluffy like a down pillow but plant based.  It has an overall lighter feel than cotton as well.
  • Latex- Shredded latex is great for those who like a soft pillow.  Your head will sink into these pillows.  They will keep you cooler too.  It is similar to conventional memory foam but without the toxic chemicals. It’s also mold and mite resistant, 100% biodegradable, and even antimicrobial.

Ok, now that you know the different types of materials to look for in a safe natural pillow, let me review the natural pillow options I’ve personally tried.

White Lotus Home sent me 3 different pillow options to try.  They are store that offers pure and natural mattresses, bedding, and home furnishings all made in the USA.  It’s your one stop shop to clean up your bedroom!  When I was choosing my pillow options to try out they were so helpful.  Walking me through the whole process and asking questions to ensure I had the best options for how I sleep.

I ended up with the Shredded Latex pillow for my husband, the 100% Organic Cotton pillow for myself and the Kapok Travel pillow to try out as well.

Shredded Latex Pillow- My husband LOVES this pillow!  I’m not just saying that.  He probably tells me at least twice a week how much he likes his pillow.  He had been on me for  while to pick up a new pillow.  He’s a side sleeper and likes his pillow to have some softness with it, but still offer some support.  The shredded latex pillow hit the nail on the head for him.  He said he’s never had a pillow he’s loved more!  The overall weight of the pillow is pretty heavy, it reminds me of a down pillow a little.  What’s great about White Lotus Home is you can customize the fill amount.  Just get a zippered case for the pillow when selecting the type of pillow and you’ll be able to take latex out if it’s too much.  I love this feature!  I did try my husband’s pillow too and I have to say I really loved it as well.  It offers the support I like but still felt fluffy.

100% Organic Cotton- So this is the pillow I got for myself.  It offers more of a firm support then the shredded latex. This is especially great if you sleep on your stomach.  I don’t sleep on my stomach but I do like a decent pillow firmness.  I used to sleep with two pillows before getting this one.  I also got the medium fill because I knew I could always take some fill out if I wanted too.  It felt a little firm initially so I did take some of the cotton out.  Another perk of getting the zippered case!  That helped a lot.  Then I felt my head could sink more into the pillow and not be so stiff.  It’s also nice because once the pillow flattens out a little, I know I can go back and add more fill that I took out.

Kapok-  A great option for a side or back sleeper.  This one felt light on the head and not as firm as the cotton.  I like how it molded to my head after a while and didn’t feel as firm as it did in the beginning.  It seemed more breathable than my cotton one too.  The pillow we got to try was a travel pillow so it was a little harder to get an accurate idea of what a kapok pillow might be like since the pillow itself is smaller but overall I was happy with it.  I think the next time I order one I would order a kapok pillow.  I’ve been letting my 22 month old use the travel size pillow and she loves it!  It’s the perfect size for a toddler pillow.  The kapok pillows are also more budget friendly compared to the other two options above.

If you’re looking for a good quality pillow that isn’t going to off gas toxins I would definitely look into White Lotus Home.  They really offer so many great options for natural pillows.  I didn’t get to try out their wool or buckwheat options but they’re reviews look great for both of those pillows as well!  What I love too about White Lotus Home is that each of their pillows comes in a smooth 100% organic cotton sateen pillow casing.  You can know your pillow is doted on from start to finish!  Use Coupone Code: GGG for 20% off your order!!

Have you swapped out your conventional pillow for a natural alternative?  If so, what was your favorite pillow you’ve tried?

The Best Natural Paint

The Best Natural Paint

SO excited to chat with you all about the best natural paint!  This post has been a long time coming.  We moved into our new house in mid-November.  This is our first home we’ve owned and we couldn’t be more excited to make it our own!  We knew the first thing we wanted to do was paint it.  Paint makes such a difference.  We weren’t too fond of the color it was and wanted it to feel brighter and bigger.  However, wanting a non-toxic home is at the top of my list and I didn’t want to compromise.  Fortunately, after researching out natural paint alternatives I didn’t have too.  I found Natura Paint by Benjamin Moore and was sold!

*This post is sponsored by Benjamin Moore, however, opinions and thoughts are my own. 

If you’re unsure of what makes conventional paint so toxic, let me explain.  Most paints contain VOC’s(Volatile Organic Compounds) gasses emitted from liquids or solids.  They are known to cause a host of problems from irritation to throat, nose, eyes, headaches, nausea, damage to liver, kidneys and nervous system, some of the organic compounds have even been found to cause cancer in humans.

The largest factor is indoor air quality, which according to the EPA.gov is worst inside then outside-

Studies have found that levels of several organics average 2 to 5 times higher indoors than outdoors. During and for several hours immediately after certain activities, such as paint stripping, levels may be 1,000 times background outdoor levels.

There are a number of other chemicals found in paint too besides VOC’s.  Just a few are:

  • Ammonia
  • Acetone
  • Fungicides
  • Biocides
  • Crystalline silica

Thankfully, there are waterborne paints now, instead of solvents.  Waterborne paints are such a great option for so many reasons.  

  • Low odor
  • Low VOC
  • Quick dry time
  • Great durability
  • Less hazards and easy and safe clean up
  • They’ve been proven to perform in both residential and industrial buildings.

I must note that there is no perfect paint out there.  Only better options.  It’s similar to nail polish- even the best natural ones still contain  chemicals.  They have to in order to truly perform.  Paint is in the same wheel house.  There are a lot more “green” options out there now, but they also don’t perform or the colors are not aesthetically pleasing.  When choosing the paint for our house, look, feel and overall performance was a huge factor.  You may get a natural paint but if it doesn’t perform, then what’s it good for?

My friend Steph from @stephdufordlifestyle used Natura paint from Benjamin Moore and loved it.  She is very choosy in what she uses in her home too- even more so.  Her son has multiple food allergies and multiple environmental allergies.  She also has severe MCS(multiple chemical sensitivities) and has to be extremely careful.  She has painted two houses now with the Natura line and has loved the outcome in both!  She also shared this tidbit I want to pass on to you as well.  She told me they recommend those who suffer from MCS to first test out a small area on a piece of wood and see how you react or possibly take it in the car with you before doing a whole room or house.  This way you know if you tolerate it first.

Here is a quote from her:

As someone who has a child who suffers from multiple food allergies and environmental allergies, plus having MCS myself I was extremely happy with the Benjamin Moore Natura product both times we’ve used it in our homes.  It not only went on just like you would want paint too but it held up, and did not cause us any adverse reactions.

I love that the Natura line has zero emissions after 4 hours.  It also has zero VOC’s, is 100% acrylic and is a primer in one.  Plus, it has a quick dry time.  Everything felt dry after a couple hours. What’s even more exciting is it’s asthma and allergy friendly too!  Here is a quote on the asthma and allergy certification on Benjamin Moore’s website:

We created a paint that is scientifically proven to have a reduced level of allergens. The asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program independently tests and identifies consumer products that are more suitable for those living with asthma and allergies. Natura earned the certification based on its odor, emission and VOC performance.

I love that it’s not hard to find or source Natura paint.  Just head to any Benjamin Moore paint store and it’s there.  Check out Benjamin Moore’s store finder here.  They also have thousands of colors to choose from as well- another huge draw.

We chose the color Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace OC-65, Natura, Flat– a crisp clean white, similar to soft linen.  We did our whole whole house in Chantilly Lace, except my daughter’s bedroom we did in Benjamin Moore Gray Owl OC-52, Natura, Flat.  We also didn’t paint the master bath or the kid’s bath yet- still deciding, but we did paint the 1/2 bath on the main floor(I forgot to take a before photo but it was all mint green to give you an idea).  We had all the walls in the house painted in the Chantilly Lace and then my daughter’s room painted in Gray Owl and then the baseboards and trim were painted with Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace OC-65, Natura, Semi-Gloss.  I couldn’t be more pleased with the overall outcome!  The paint looks just as you would imagine paint to look and brightened up our whole house.  As you can see below, the before and after photos show the difference paint can make!

What the painters thought-

We hired painters to paint for us.  With little kids, we knew we just wouldn’t have the time or space to do the whole house ourselves.  Plus, our house has some really high vaulted ceiling areas and it would be hard to try and get them.  The painters were excited that the paint was from Benjamin Moore.  They said it was a quality paint and good choice.  They had yet to use the Natura line from them.  I asked for their feedback after painting and they said it was a great paint!  They did go over some areas three times where it was a little darker from the previous paint but other than that they were happy with it as well.

Smell Factor-

The best part?  I could hardly smell it at all!  We stayed at my parents for a week while they painted and I would come check on it everyday and was always amazed at how little it smelled.  Even when my mom came over she kept saying she could hardly smell anything!  My nanny said the same thing.  I was excited since the biggest concern going into a paint job for me is always the smell.

I really can’t recommend this paint enough!  The quality of the paint, to the zero VOC’s, zero emissions after 4 hours, and asthma and allergy certification make this paint the best in my opinion.  Check out all of Benjamin Moore Colors here.

Of course I couldn’t write this blog post without some before and after photos.  The change is amazing!  This is just the first part of my Detox Your Home Series.  I’ll be sharing everything we do to our house as we do it, from products we get, etc.  So many of you have asked how to do it, excited to finally share the process and tips with you.  Plus, once were done I’ll be sharing the final photos of the house.  We are still in the decorating phase and haven’t put anything up or gotten new furniture yet- it all takes time.  Bottom line- I have so much more planned and can’t wait to share it with you!

*Note- I live in Washington where there are more gray days then sun, so the color doesn’t quite pop as much in my opinion.  However, the before pics give you a good idea of how much brighter it looks!  Also, I had the light on in some after photos and some I didn’t, so you could really see what the color looks like in both lightings.  I did notice in the photos with the light on the Chantilly Lace color looks a little more yellow tinted.
