I wrote this post while participating in a blog tour conducted by Clever Girls Collective on behalf of Claritin®. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program.

I'm super excited to be moving in a few weeks. With the move, we're gaining a new room--my home office. I've been pouring over design books for months picking patterns and prints. I'm jumping on the trend of having a vibrant home office. Check out this inspiring space I found on HGTV:

We opted for this modern print from Brooklyn's own Flavor Paper. We're going for all-out color. All the trim will be bright yellow lacquer to match the paper--pretty exciting and very vibrant.

Long-time allergy sufferer and design expert Sabrina Soto is working with the makers of non-drowsy Claritin® to share her ideas for making indoor and outdoor spaces more beautiful, functional and allergy-friendly. I was thrilled to learn one of the colors we picked--yellow--is a hot color for interiors (for more tips on design visit www.facebook.com/claritin). So Momtrends Central will be outfitted in a hot trend!

Beyond this cheery print, we're also using low-VOC paint for all the trims. Since the office is windowless, we're adding a fan to keep the air circulating (love the vintage look of this cinni fan). While it may seem counterintuitive, letting the fresh air in is better for allergy sufferers. I have problems with seasonal allergies and sometimes I just want to hide inside. We try to sweep in fresh air not only with the color and design, but also literally with the fan to get the stale air out (and don't forget to change those filters on your A/C units!)

Keeping clutter to a minimum is key for controlling dust. We're using these trays from Jonathan Adler ($98) to stay organized and keep the paper from multiplying wildly.
