Sneak Peek Inside Mariah Carey's Nusery
Wondering just what Maria Carey's nursery looks like? Carey, who is due any day now with boy/girl twins, gave Life and Style a peek at the nursery she and husband Nick Cannon designed in their Bel Air mansion.
"I wanted to create a beautiful, tranquil, cozy environment for the babies," says Mariah, The mom-to-be adds, "Everything matches, but pieces are individualized to celebrate the twins as separate entities."
The crib bedding is accented with pink and green, and butterfly motifs and stuffed animals fill the babies' room, including a lamb and a huge giraffe, which was a gift from Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne. But the personally designed ceiling just may be Mariah's favorite touch-
"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 favorites: 'Underneath the Stars' and 'Close My Eyes,'" revealed the singer. "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."
Stay tuned for the birth announcement--which should be delivered any day now!
