Celebrities do everything bigger and better than the average person ever could. With endless cash flow and access to resources far surpassing the shelves of Babies “R” Us, it’s no wonder these famous parents go above and beyond, creating extraordinary bedrooms and nurseries for their bundles of joy. Being the child of a Hollywood star can be exhausting, especially if both parents are in the public eye. These sanctuaries provide famous kids with a private, paparazzi-free space to call their own. From bedrooms to nurseries, and even their own mini-estates, these spaces transpire glamour and exclusiveness.
Queen Bey and HOVA have to lead the pack when it comes to designer kid rooms. Why? Because very few images are available of the rarely seen Blue Ivy or her bedroom. When Beyonce was expecting, some photos were released, showing a dark pink, salmon wall colour and unique, modern furniture. Russian nesting dolls accent the dresser while adding a touch of history to the contemporary vibe.
Super posh Kourtney Kardashian wouldn’t let her first-born son’s room be anything less than spectacular. With classic black and white pinstripe accents to match the powder blue panelling, model aeroplanes, and sophisticated stuffed animals, Mason is sure to enjoy this mini-man cave for years to come.
While raising twins, it can be difficult to treat each child as their own separate person, rather than a set. In an attempt to give his son, Gideon, a great hangout zone, Neal Patrick Harris used shades of blue and grey to create a calm, relaxing vibe. Patterned curtains and modern furniture give the room a well-rounded, balanced feel, without overwhelming the chill atmosphere.
With charcoal-and-white wallpaper and striped Roman shades, the actress chose strong graphic patterns and a neutral palette for her first baby’s nursery. Whimsical touches, such as a black-and-white striped teepee and adorable animal accent pieces, keep the room kid-friendly and playful. Plus, a copper wire bird cage-inspired lighting fixture provides tiny pops of bright colour to the muted colour scheme.
In preparation for the second daughter, Haven, Jessica Alba designed a nursery that also incorporated a play area for her eldest daughter, Honor. Using soft, clean colours like cream, ivory, and powder pink to highlight door frames and trim, Alba created a light, airy vibe to the room, perfectly complemented by natural sunlight streaming in from the balcony doors.
Candice Romo, the co-founder of the baby product line Hawk+Sloane, and her husband Tony, the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, welcomed their third son, Jones McCoy, in August. And when it comes to nursery decor, we say the third time’s the charm! Both Candice and Tony were highly involved in the design aspects—with a little help from their Dallas-based interior designer, Debra Owens.
The mini home perfectly matches the family’s $23 million Brentwood mansion and comes complete with a kitchen, dining area and study room. ‘Early bday gift my princess!!! Love you baby Z’ LeBron captioned the Instagram story which saw Zhuri James standing by her new house.
The LA Lakers player filmed the inside of the mini-mansion while proud homeowner Zhuri hilariously swept the floor where LeBron tracked in some dirt on her gleaming custom floors.
What’s pink, white, and sweet all over? Other than Ali Fedotowsky’s new daughter Molly, it’s her nursery, which was created with the help of Vanessa Antonelli. The designer checked out the celeb mama’s Instagram posts and saw photos in her home showing “beautiful, feminine, and frilly” things. “Immediately, a design started dancing in my head featuring the floral focal wall,” Antonelli says. In fact, Ali’s style isn’t very girlie—but Antonelli says she still loved the inspiration, “and her nursery was created around that gorgeous wall from The Flower Wall Company featuring thousands of handmade flowers.” Also worthy of envy: Baby Molly’s amazing closet, designed by LA Closets.
“I always said I didn’t want everything pink just because I was having a girl,” says CaCee Cobb, longtime BFF of Jessica Simpson. CaCee welcomed a daughter, Wilder, in April, with her husband, actor Donald Faison. (Brother, Rocco, is 2.) With the help of celebrity nursery designer Vanessa Antonelli, Cobb started with a blue mattress, but the decor did get more feminine from there—with a whimsical hanging branch and vintage-feeling wallpaper. “Of course, now that Wilder is here,” Cobb says, “all I do is dress her in pink!”
The structure is situated on the James Hyatt Studio–designed grounds behind Kardashian’s residence in Calabasas, California. It’s more modern than the Poosh founder’s Italian-influenced home—but there’s a freshness to it that enhances the sprawling estate. (Plus, it was fashioned from ipe wood to match the pergolas.) “Everything that I looked at was a more modern, simple, sophisticated design,” says Kardashian. “I think this is modern, but I think it’s still cosy.”
