A Royal Nursery for Dr. Phil's First Granddaughter

A European-inspired nursery fit for a royal princess was the vision for Dr. Phil's first granddaughter, Avery Elizabeth. The heirloom-quality crib, featuring gold-leaf accents, sits under a canopy of silk fabric, and the hand-stitched Lulla Smith crib bedding is coveted by celeb parents such as Jennifer Lopez, Courteney Cox and Katie Holmes.

The furniture, from the Petit Ange collection, features a distressed wood finish with real gold-leaf accents, and it's made exclusively for L.A. baby boutique to the stars, Petit Tresor. The antique look of the furniture keeps with the elegance of the European design, and the soft pink silk fabrics used for the window coverings and pillows create an Old World vibe. The crystal chandelier adds that special finishing touch to the room. Photo courtesy of Petit Trésor

Ashlee Simpson Goes Disney

Young and modern actress/singer Ashlee Simpson has a soft spot for the classics. Ashlee commissioned an actual artist from Disney to install the custom Winnie the Pooh design. Her cartoon-inspired look is beautifully balanced with clean lines and striped shades of blue. Photo courtesy of Project Nursery

Because baby Bronx's nursery was extra large, designer Katy Mimari of Caden Lane created three different areas of sleep and play. Another clever wall installation included a functional chalkboard attached to the play area wall, complete with a tray to hold the chalk. Photo courtesy of Project Nursery

Brooke Burke's Gender-Neutral Shared Nursery

Hollywood mom of four Brooke Burke Charvet created a shared nursery for her two youngest — who are only 13 months apart. It was important to keep the overall room gender-neutral while separating boy and girl bedding by designer Katy Mimari. The diamond pattern ties the room together while adding interest to the nursery walls. Photo courtesy of Project Nursery

Cake Boss' Nursery Takes the Cake

The ever-so-talented Cake Boss, Buddy Valastro, knows his cake decor, but this time he left the designing to wife Lisa and nursery design guru Sherri Blum of Jack and Jill Interiors. Pregnant with baby Carlo, Lisa chose a traditional nursery style to complement the rest of her home. Buddy, however, preferred a safari theme in over-the-top, Cake Boss fashion. Sherri knew that she could combine both ideas into the perfect recipe that would satisfy what both parents' palates were craving. As her final challenge, Sherri also had to keep everything gender-neutral, since the parents wanted to be surprised on the due date. Photo courtesy of Project Nursery

It was important for Jack and Jill designer Sherri Blum to include the Valastros' older children in the new baby's nursery design. She asked Lisa to provide baby photos of her three children, Sofia, Buddy and Marco; Sherri then resized the photos and printed them in sepia tones. She spray-painted frames in an antique silver to match the silver nursery furniture and hung the photos above the changing table. Sherri says, "By bringing in their baby photos, we've honored these children as well as provided the new baby with sweet, familiar baby faces to enjoy while Mom or Dad is changing diapers."

Laila Ali's Hopeful and Spiritual Nursery

Creating a nursery for her daughter was a very personal and heartfelt experience for Laila Ali, daughter of boxing great Muhammad Ali. With the help of go-to nursery design firm Little Crown Interiors, Laila wanted to blend the important symbols of courage, compassion and spirituality into the design of her daughter's nursery. The pink "Hope" crib from Newport Cottages, which donates a portion of the purchase to breast cancer research, became a focal point in the nursery for this very reason. Above the crib hangs a stretched canvas photo of Laila as an infant being held by her father. The two pieces represent both the importance of the past and the strength of the future for baby Sydney.

Baby Sydney's nursery is filled with custom designs and feminine fabrics used for the bedding, changing pad and sleek wingback glider. Custom wall decals were created to achieve the look of sophisticated wall paneling, and framed artwork featuring angels adds a sweet and personal touch to this uplifting nursery.

Tia Mowry's Luxe Baby Boy Nursery

Baby bonding time was the number one priority when actress Tia Mowry was dreaming up a nursery for her first child, a baby boy. She wanted the rich combination of dark mahogany furniture coupled with light ivory upholstery and bedding. It's the little details that make this room come together, such as the prince crown embellishments in 22K gold leaf on the crib and the custom-made bedding. Photo courtesy of Petit Trésor

Mel B.'s Elegant & Serene Nursery

When former Spice Girl and fitness guru Melanie Brown met with celebrity nursery design team Naomi Alon and Gerri Panebianco of Little Crown Interiors to discuss her baby girl's nursery, she used two words as inspiration: calm and serene. The ladies went to work designing an elegant nursery with a sparkling chandelier, custom crib bedding and gilded furniture that was also a peaceful place for Mom and baby to bond.

Warm neutrals and lavender with a hint of sage green set the calm color palette for the room, while dramatic silk dupioni draping creates a cozy and private seating area for rocking baby. The hand-painted orchids and custom wall art adorning the walls add the finishing touches to this opulent, one-of-a-kind nursery. Photo courtesy of Project Nursery

Samantha Harris' Boutique-Inspired Nursery

Former Dancing with the Stars host Samantha Harris kept her baby's gender a surprise, so it was up to designer Katy Mimari of Caden Lane to come up with both a boy and a girl nursery concept. Once little Hilary entered the world, it was decided — a hand-painted shop window above the crib became the focal point, and the nursery's whimsical boutique theme came to life. Decorative accessories galore adorn this ultra-girly, boutique-inspired nursery. Photo courtesy of Project Nursery

Samantha Harris' Boutique-Inspired Nursery

Katy describes Samantha as a "dream client." Once Samantha selected Caden Lane's Finley crib bedding collection as her jumping-off point, it was only a matter of time before the two would decide to play up the fun and funky zebra accents and carry them throughout the room.

Samantha Harris' Daughter's Big-Girl-Bed Transition

"Clients often want gorgeous dark hardwood floors in the nursery, but sometimes they can darken the room a tad too much," says celebrity nursery designer Katy Mimari. In this case, Katy found the perfect solution by bringing in beautifully crafted white furniture by Bratt Décor to help brighten the room while adding a bit of contrast to the dark floors. Custom chocolate-brown curtains brought the rich color to the walls and tied everything together. Photo courtesy of Project Nursery

Samantha Harris' Daughter's Big-Girl-Bed Transition

When it came time for her daughter's move to a big-girl bed, Samantha Harris chose the twin version of her Caden Lane crib set, which made for a smooth and simple decorating transition. A painted canopy, fit for a princess, adds height and grandeur to the toddler's new bed. Photo courtesy of Project Nursery
