Nursery and Kids Room Design

Online Nursery Design Course

As my mom told me when my twins were born many years ago, “honey, you’re never ever going to sleep like you did before they came into your life.” Why is she always right???? That’s one of the reasons I created an online nursery design course. 

I believe most of us want to do everything we can for our babies and kids so they grow to be the best they can be. As a designer, I’ve learned over the years that the furniture, sheets, mattresses, paint and all the other endless items we surround our babies and kids with can seriously affect their mental and physical development. It’s true and very scary. Autism, asthma and allergies comes to mind. There is Arsenic in tons of cribs and kids furniture!

I created an Online Nursery Design Course out of need. Yes, need! And it’s also cruelty free. Cause animal based décor is loaded with poisons so dangerous that it’s unimaginable that they’re legal to use. Like PFAS (that’s Pee – fas). Yeah.. That’s a common poison found in kids furniture made with leather and wool. It’s  called the forever chemical. Cause it never leaves their body! The safest furniture and décor for your child is clean design – no toxins, no chemicals and no tragedy.

But can it still be trendy and fabulous looking you ask? Of course it can! And I will show you how. What is so cool about this course, is that I approach it as a mom and designer. Meaning, it’s quick. It’s two hours only. Bada-bing, bada-boom! “Cause our kids run us ragged and we are tired and busy and don’t have time gosh darnit!” (another one of my mother’s sarcastic, but true quotes)

Natural Alternative To Scotchgard

Natural Alternative To Scotchgard. I try my best to eliminate fabrics and furniture with chemicals. Our skin absorbs everything. Stain protectors like Scotchgard are very dangerous.  Stain repellants contain major lethal chemicals that can cause cancer, infertility, hormonal imbalances and can weaken the immune system. That’s just a few of the illnesses and sicknesses that fabric protectors can cause.

Alas, my never ending search for a stain guard that is non toxic, safe, eco-friendly and organic is over! It’s been a long journey. Here is my dramatic (yes – for me it was dramatic) review of a Natural Alternative To Scotchgard.

Menopause Tips – How to Sleep Better

Menopause Tips – How to Sleep Better.

One of the most frustrating symptoms of menopause is hot flashes. Commonly, they lead to sleep disruptions and insomnia.

Fluctuating hormones are the trigger for hot spells. In the middle of the night, this can cause you to wake in drenching sweat and the inability to resume a restful night’s sleep. If this happens frequently, insomnia can take over, and anxiety can rise when it comes to bedtime.

If this sounds familiar to you, thankfully, there are various methods to help you regain control of your sleep during this changing time.

Below we’ve compiled a list of the top 8 ways to help you sleep better if hot flashes wake you up at night. Read on to find the solutions to your problem and get a peaceful night’s rest.

Create A Virtual Learning Classroom At Home

Create A Virtual Learning Classroom At Home. Millions of children are homeschooling. And unless parents have unlimited funds, thinking “out of the box” when it comes to creating a home schooling environment for their child is a must. It’s not only about finding a desk and chair, “self regulation” is also key for a homeschool space.  The term self regulate refers to a person’s ability to adjust and control their energy level, emotions, behavior and attention. In other words, if our kids are focused, anchored and happy learning from home, then we parents can focus on our work as well.

Without a doubt, this webinar was one of our most informative and important ones to date. Barry like most of our guests, is a true expert in his field. It is a very important subject considering we spend one third of our life on a mattress. A mattress must be safe and chemical free. Listen and learn. Isn’t your health worth 40 minutes of your time?

How To Design the Best Healthy Vegan Home

How To Design the Best Healthy Vegan Home🧚‍♀️ We all want to be happy, healthy and strong don’t we?  We don’t wake up in the morning and shout out “today, I want to be sad, weak and unmotivated!” It’s scientifically proven that most of us crave positivity. Of course we do!  However, we still seek confirmation from the world of science. I recall years ago when  “baloney sandwiches are bad for your health!” made headlines. REALLY??  I had absolutely no  idea that chemically injected, processed, dyed animal meat byproducts weren’t part of an ideal diet for humans! Shocking! Btw, i had to look up the spelling of baloney. Yes it’s been that long since I ate a baloney sandwich. I think the last time was when I was a kid in summer camp. Back to “how to design the best healthy vegan home.” Watch this recorded webinar I did for the fabulous EGE Carpet Showroom in London about the subject (of vegan design..not baloney sandwiches 😏).
