If you happened to catch the unveiling of Mariah Carey’s twin babies on Friday’s 20/20 episode, you would’ve seen their ‘caramel and white’ designer nursery and matching baby duds. The caramel and white plaid design of the nursery walls was unexpected, refreshing, and sure to be copied by other expecting parents in our celebrity-driven culture.
