GOLD NOTES

NUGGETS FROM THE WORLD OF RESIDENTIAL DESIGN
Dealing With Home-Based Allergies And Sensitivities

My sister has hay fever and pet allergies. I got lucky in those respects, but I have very sensitive skin. I wanted to address both allergens and sensitivity triggers in our home environments with practical solutions, and was delighted to find three experts who could contribute to this topic. Here’s the article via Forbes.com. If this describes you or a member of your household, take a listen. If it describes someone you know, pass along a link. You can also listen in to a conversation this afternoon – and ask whatever questions you have – about this topic on Clubhouse.
