Avoid the Fumes
That "new-paint smell" you're used to is actually the scent of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) being released into the air. Opt for a zero-VOC paint and you won't even have to air out a room before you can enter it. Benjamin Moore's new Natura line is VOC-free and available in more than 3,000 hues.
BENJAMIN MOORE Natura paints in Erin Green, Poppy, Purple Rain, and Mozart Blue, $50/ gallon; 800-672-4686 for stores.
