A big step would be to start out with paint designed to minimize
off-gassing.  At least in the U.S., several companies have
commercial lines of low-VOC paint.  Although I don't know of any
data comparing them, some have passed stringent certification (see,
for example, <URL:http://www.GreenSeal.org>) and I would assume that
all paint labelled specially would have substantially less than the
ones that don't.
