Elton John and David Furnish are sparing no expense when it comes to decorating their son Zachary’s bedroom!

Understated is not a word that I would ever use to describe Elton John. And now the singer  is shelling out a ton of dough to decorate his newborn son’s nursery. Elton and his civil partner since 2005, David Furnish, have spent a reported $54,332 on little Zachary‘s room inside their Windsor mansion, Woodside. “Elton and John began planning the nursery months ago,” a source tells the Daily Mail. “They wanted it to be ready for when the baby came home.” Currently the couple is in Los Angeles with the infant, who was born on Christmas Day, but it seems that they plan to raise him in Europe.

“England is where their heart is,” a friend tells the paper. “There is no way they would move to America full time.”

Elton got the best Christmas gift of all — a son!

The proud papas have recruited their friend, shoe designer Patrick Cox, to help decorate Zachary’s room, which is described as “palatial.” While most new parents fill their nurseries with furniture from Babies R Us or Target, Elton, 63, and David, 48, have spent thousands of dollars on one-of-a-kind “tailored furniture items,” adds the source. Doesn’t that seem a bit crazy, HollyMoms? Just last week, we told you about how they already got a high-tech mamaRoo child seat for the tot in LA. This kid is going to grow up in the lap of luxury, not matter what country he’s in.

We certainly would love to get a sneak peek into Zachary’s lavish room!
