Mariah Carey is just about ready for these twins to arrive. Their lush “pad” is certainly ready to go!
“I wanted to create a beautiful, tranquil, cozy environment for the babies,” Mariah tells Life & Style. “Everything matches, but pieces are individualized to celebrate the twins as separate entities.”
They designed gorgeous nurseries in both Los Angeles and New York City.
“Designing the LA nursery with Gail Sedigh of AFK Furniture and world-famous decorator Mario Buatta was so challenging because I had such specific ideas I wanted implemented. 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. 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.’ 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.”
Daddy wants the kids to get their education on the East Coast, but there is planty of time to think about that,
“I prefer the East Coast schooling over the West Coast,” Nick says. “But there are other things that come into play, like work.”
One thing is for certain, Nick and Mariah are ready to meet their babies and begin this whole new life as parents.
“Being a mother is probably the hardest job in the world. I feel like, in a lot of ways, children come into the world to teach us,” Mariah says. “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.”
I am so excited for them. This is going to be a perfectly beautiful family. Can’t wait to see those cute faces!
