Laila Ali may have been a fierce fighter in the ring, but clearly she has a soft side...a very soft side. This dreamy nursery belongs to her daughter Sydney and is decidedly feminine and sweet. It was designed by Naomi Alon and Gerri Panebianco of LA-based Little Crown Interiors who balanced the candy pink with more mature elements.
It's not every day we see a pink crib and this one has a story behind it. The "Hope" crib is a collaboration between Little Crown Interiors and Newport Cottages to benefit breast cancer research. 10% of the proceeds of each crib sale are donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Another memorable piece in the room is the custom upholstered glider by SPI Baby. To glam the room up a bit, Naomi and Gerri added decals on the walls to mimic decorative moldings from Dali Decals.
The artwork holds special meaning, cherubs to represent Laila's spiritual side and a photograph of her father cradling her as a baby stretched over canvas (both by Art.com).
