All the Details on Ali Fedotowsky’s Daughter’s Nursery – Including the Wall Featuring Thousands of Silk Roses

06/29/2016 at 01:30 PM ET

Ali Fedotowsky is off of bed rest and ready for her little girl!

The former Bachelorette, 31, is expecting her first child with fiancé Kevin Manno in July. And to prepare for her daughter’s arrival, she worked with celebrity nursery designer Vanessa Antonelli to create the perfect blush-and-cream space for her baby girl.

“During our first meeting, Ali was adamant that her style was not super girly, but after a quick look at the rest of her home, which she decorated, I knew exactly what she’d like,” Antonelli tells PEOPLE about her inspiration behind the room.

She adds, “The room has so many incredible details that come together to make it complete — like the custom furniture by Romina, the bunny ears on the closet hardware by LA Closet Design, the subtle sparkles in the Graham and Brown wallpaper and the ‘Endure’ artwork created by Petal Lane in Ali’s grandmother’s handwriting.”
