Let Glidden Help You Create Your Dream Nursery

I recently learned that two different family members are pregnant. After my initial excitement for them subsided, my brain immediately went into nursery mode. Even if you haven’t done a whole lot to the rest of your home to make it as nontoxic as possible, the nursery is a great place to start. And of course, making your nursery eco-friendly doesn’t mean making it boring or drab. You can stil welcome your little one to a world of color with Baby Room Colors from Glidden® Paint, as seen in What to Expect When You’re Expecting (only in theaters).

Glidden’s paint is low- and no-VOC, depending on which specific line you purchase, and I actually used it in my daughter’s room. The paint offers great coverage and very little odor — which means it would make for a stress-free nursery-painting experience.

My Colortopia is an awesomely inspirational site from Glidden where some of your favorite bloggers offer ideas for how to inject color in your nursery, and the rest of your home. You’ll find ideas from stylish ladies like Nicole Balch of Making It Lovely, Melissa Michaels of The Inspired Room, and Kate Riley of Centsational Girl. In fact, Nicole created the mood board at the top of this post using Glidden colors and items from Walmart.

    I’ve always been a fan of no VOC paints but had never seen before. It’s an excellent resource – thanks for sharing it.
