Celebaby: Inside The Carey Nursery
I'm not one for extravagance - apart from when it comes to sports cars or bikes and then all penny-pinching and bargain basement deals are OFF - especially when it comes to things like nurseries; babies grow up so fast and it just seems like such a waste, I felt mildly reckless when I spent £50 on Mamas & Papas 'Barnaby Bear' nursery things when my youngest was born!
I'm not sure I'd even go massively OTT if I had millions of pounds stashed away in the bank either. That said, I LOVE nosing around other people's nurseries to see what they've chosen and how many things they've bought which they'll discover they really didn't need.
One of the celeb' nurseries 'everyone's' been dying to see is the one which will house Mariah Carey's twins; lucky for us Mariah isn't camera shy and has thrown the nursery doors wide open so we can all have a good look around.
There's not a hint of the traditional 'pink and blue' (hurrah!) instead, Mariah and her husband, Nick, have opted for pale pink and green.
Mariah says, in the nursery expose for Life&Style magazine, "I feel like I’m bringing two individuals into the world, so I wanted to do more than cookie-cutter styles in blue and pink."
She also revealed that the ceiling has orangey-pink clouds in a blue sky with golden stars twinkling.
"It’s based on two songs I wrote that are fan favourites: Underneath the Stars and Close My Eyes," she continued, "Sometimes I just sit in the nursery and stare at the ceiling because I love it so much. To me, it symbolizes wanting my children to dream as big as possible and to let their imaginations be unbridled."
There's also the huge toy giraffe which Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne gave as a baby shower present.
It all sounds, and looks, lovely; it always seems such a shame that babies can't appreciate all the hard work that goes into their nurseries once they've arrived.
