Name: Luca, Gia & Baby Cashew
Age: 4, 2 and "due any day now"
Location: Champaign, Illinois

Color Inspiration: We follow the "find what we can, use what we have and make what we don't" philosophy. This is not only easy on the budget and environmentally responsible, but I love the mix of eclectic found objects and handmade new creations. Search your storage closets, attics and basements ...

...(and those of your family if they are willing). Color is a low-cost, high impact way of adding your personal touch. I am inspired by bold, vibrant combinations. For us, everything matches because nothing matches. A good reflection of families - where you blend personalities, temperaments, and abilities to paint a new and beautiful picture of life. We are so excited to meet this little guy and see how our lives change!

Tip For Using Color: This is the third nursery we have put together and by far, the easiest and most fun. I think the reason is that we didn't constrain ourselves to a color palette. Every shade and hue was fair game, as long as we loved it. Feel free to mix and match and put your heart into your space! It will grow with your children and give them room to be creative as well.
