Daughter Bryn

The reality star, 39, and her husband, Jason Hoppy, 38, didn’t find out if they were having a boy or a girl ahead of time, so they envisioned a gender-neutral wildlife theme for the nursery in their Manhattan apartment. But once Bryn arrived in May, there was no pressure to add tons of feminine frills. “It’s not girlie-girl,” says Frankel. “I didn’t want to be nauseated by pink.”

Daughter Hartley and son Lydon

The singer, 42, wanted a “toys and fun” theme for the decor, he says, but fiancee Carin Kingsland, 37, favored a modern look. So MendStyle decorator Wendy Kjorness compromised with a purple-and-gray pallette that gives the 4-month-old twins’ room “a sense of calm,” says McGrath, host of Don’t Forget the Lyrics!. “It’s the heart of our home.”

Son Gavin

The HGTV Design Star judge created a “peaceful environment” with a sophisticated feel for son Gavin in their Atlanta home. “I didn’t want to fill it with stuff that is specifically kid-oriented, because it’s not practical,” says Yip, 42, who welcomed Gavin via surrogate on Jan. 6. “You want things they’ll have for a lifetime, or at least into the next phase of their room.”
