This spring even I found myself sneezing and sniffling more than usual, and I’ve always thought that allergies don’t affect me.  So since I was given the opportunity to talk about ways that I keep my home stylish and allergy friendly-I figured it would be a perfect topic to share with readers!

I have to admit before I had my daughter, my decor was a bit more cluttered. I would get overwhelmed with all of the cool things you can display and have out, and I’d create a magnet for dust. But, now I’m with the less is more-and not only does it look fabulous when you walk into a room that has very little clutter, it also is allergy friendly! My bedroom is very simple and elegant, hardly anything on the dresser-you want your bedroom to invite sleep, not stress-and definitely not allergies!

As far as my apartment, I sometimes get a little OCD because we live on the first floor and I feel like the first floor gets really dusty. Also, there’s no step into my house, you just walk on in. So, I have a no shoe rule. Of course if I’m entertaining and having guests over I know I’m going to have to mop the next day anyway, so I don’t make them take off their fabulous shoes-but for everyday  normal living-take the shoes off!
