Just like all female animals, female humans have an innate desire to care and fiercely protect their young. Currently, I am pregnant with my third child and again I am amazed at how instinctual I feel during pregnancy. It should come as no surprise that there has been a huge upturn in the market for sustainable and safe baby products with the recent research on the toxins in our food and our environmental resources. Our bodies are designed to give life to future generations and we cannot take that responsibility lightly!
As both an Interior Designer and an expecting mom, I have been researching the companies of the products that I will be using to take care of my baby boy. In addition, I have taken extreme caution in selecting products I am installing in his nursery. Since my body is now his habitat, I have been exceedingly careful about the vitamins and food I intake. I am also intentional about the finishes and materials that will surround him once he’s outside my womb. It is important to me that the floor and wall finishes, furniture selections and decorative accessories all come from vegan, sustainable sources that are safe for the interaction with my baby. A vegan decorative item or furnishing is not made from a living creature. So, no fur, down, leather, wool and silk are part of the décor. Vegan décor is humane and healthier.
