as a single mother i had to be smart,but things just seem to fall into place & my creativeness helped alot. i started with a wastebasket, then i fell in love with birds. the branches for the drapery became an idea when i needed to watch my budget, yet its beautiful. i had a very ornate trunk from morroco for the baby blankets. i chose the color with in mind its fresh, tranquil & peaceful. this room has a very french & elegant feel~love it!
