Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are awaiting the arrival of their twins, and the couple has already begun prepping their Bel Air, California estate and New York City home for the babies. Carey reportedly hired world-famous interior decorators to design a cozy spaces for the twins and reportedly spent $100,000 on the designs.
"I wanted to create a beautiful, tranquil, cozy environment for the babies. Everything matches, but pieces are individualized to celebrate the twins as separate entities," Mariah Carey reported to 'Life & Style' magazine in the latest issue on now on newsstands.
Mario Buatta designed the New York City nursery and the California nursery was designed by Gail Sedigh of AFK Furniture. It has orangey-pink clouds in a blue sky with golden stars based on two songs Carey wrote, 'Underneath the Stars' and 'Close My Eyes.'
"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," she told 'Life & Style'.
The platinum nursery will give the babies a fresh start into lives of luxury but Carey said "it's going to be a delicate balance between raising them around glitz and glamour and keeping them grounded. One thing I'm sure of is that I'll be grateful for the twins every day, no matter what."
