Thanks for hanging in there with me as I expunge myself
of this nursery obsession. We know so many couples who
are expecting or, to quote my grandmother, "have done
a little math" (added to their family!) I hope they've
gotten some inspiration this week.
Today's posting is a combination of Nursery No-Nos, beautiful bedrooms and a peek at some nurseries of
The Rich and Famous:

How precious is Samantha Harris' daughter's girly nursery?!
Jennifer Lopez' twins live like the hip-hop royalty they are:
Kelly Ripa went with a subdued yet classic fairy tale theme for her daughter's nursery:
What a fantasy playroom for Mariah Carey's twins:
I can definitely imagine Nick Carter playing in this room, too!
Neil Patrick Harris' son has a down-to-Earth nursery

color scheme for her daughter's nursery.
Rap/Hip Hop mogel Sean P. Diddy Combs expressed his softer
side through this heavenly mural in his twin daughters' nursery.
All parents want their child's nursery to be special and I applaud the hard work and planning that goes into designing and constructing a beautiful and functional nursery. Unfortunately, not all efforts are successful:

I like pink but this color scheme is a
There's a place for overblown red
gingham and a nursery isn't it.
Pulling off a pink and black color scheme is challenging and
I totally appreciate the attempt at a French Connection.
This wallpaper should be hung in a country club restroom, not a nursery.
I'm on the fence about the Candy Land wall painting. Yes,
it's ingenious and colorful. While bigger-than-life murals
can be a little overwhelming, they're definitely bright.
Phillip is one fortunate little buckaroo to have this darling nursery in which to
bunk down. And how cute is that cactus growth chart?!
Here are the last unique, charming and DIY-able nurseries:
Lots of taping to prep Ava's wall paint treatment but it was totally worth the time.
LOVE the floor lamps and ceiling light fixtures in Miranda's and Lauren's nursery.

Thank you for taking the time this week to scan through the many adorable and affordable nurseries
that have been featured. I'll close with one of my favorite quotes:
All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once they grow up.
