Inspired by the beautiful room that Gwyneth Paltrow created for her daughter Apple, Madonna asked the actress to lend a hand in decorating the most glamorous “princess” room for Mercy, The Sun reports.
The singer is currently in the process of renovating her New York townhouse and has vast plans for decorating her newest child’s bedroom including “porcelain dolls, antique teddy bears, a library of leather-bound children’s books and ancient maps of Africa to adorn the walls.”
A source revealed: “As well as all the items inside, she’s also commissioned a mini Georgian-style treehouse for Mercy and David in her garden [and] has been filling Mercy’s wardrobe at the same time. She’s stocked up on cashmere sweaters, dresses and silk tunics and has had a new charm bracelet made for her. It features a miniature bell, a Statue of Liberty, a map of Africa and lockets with photos of everyone in her new family.”
It looks as though Lourdes, Madonna’s oldest child is also excited about her new sister: “She’s really looking forward to having a little girl in the house she can care for. She’s bought piles of leggings, hipster T-shirts, tutus and trainers for the new arrival.”
Madonna was finally given permission to adopt 4-year-old Mercy from Malawi last week after months of negotiations. The little girl will join siblings Lourdes, 12, Rocco, 8, and David, 3. Her son David Banda was also adopted from Malawi in 2006.
