Rethinking Kids' Rooms
November 4, 2007
Think of a kid's room with a sea motif and you imagine the obvious: cute fish and billowing seaweed painted on the walls, a poster print or two of sailboats, a "Finding Nemo" bedspread.

But when it came to his own bedroom, 4-year-old Caden Ridenour got something out of the ordinary.

Because he's the fourth and youngest child in his family, his mom, Christa Ridenour, felt he deserved something special. "He always got lots of leftovers and hand-me-downs," Ridenour reasoned.

She and her husband, Cary, decided to convert the office of their four-bedroom Foothills home into a fifth bedroom for Caden. Then, ...more>>

The Luxury Effect
May 2007
This article on luxury products discusses the new trends in this growing and diversifying industry, naming Bratt Decor as one the most luxurious names in baby.

Welcome to the new reality of luxury retailing......

Out of nowhere in the summer of 2002, you couldn't walk down the street--in both cities and suburbs--without tripping over a young mother pushing her baby in a luxurious $800 Dutch-manufactured Bugaboo stroller festooned with fancy accessories.

It seemingly had no rhyme or reason to it.

Where had they come from? Why were so many women plopping down so much cash on an item they'd be dumping ...more>>
 
Behind the Scenes with Mary Bauer of Bratt Decor
February 7, 2013
How did you get started in the children’s furniture business? My husband, Stephen, and I began Bratt Decor in 1995 when we were expecting our very first baby. The world of designer looks for children has really blossomed over the past 18 years, but back then, there was nothing—no Pottery Barn Kids, no Restoration Hardware, no Contemporary Designs, nothing. We decided to start our own company, believing that if you gave moms sophisticated choices for a truly designer nursery experience, they would respond. You can’t imagine what an unusual concept that was at the time. People thought we were crazy. ?? Where do ...more>>

Kid's Luxury: Opulence Comes in Smaller Sizes As Children Flex Their Muscle in a Deluxe World
February 2008
Think Angelina and Zahara with matching designer handbags; dismiss it as the Brangelina brand of eccentricity and venture winking at the modern-day version of the oldest human impulse--to behold an untrammeled frontier. If you can't fit cookie baking into your already jam-packed schedule, its defensible.

But as an up-to-the-minute urbanite, if you still dress up your kid in top-to-toe pink or a character associated with big corporations, like Barney or any Disney character, you ignore the call of natural evolution. With almost all high end items showing up in miniature sizes, it's time to treat the little princes and divas like ...more>>
