Choose a crib style from simple to spectacular, plain to pretty. Then use your imaginatin to plan a little girl's nursery where a lifetime of memories will start.
A Nautical theme is a classic choice for any nursery--and great for a summer beach cottage. Start with traditional furniture and add in shades of sea-worthy blues and reds. Break with convention by choosing bright bedding, cherry wall border and fun art, and this is a room that's perfect for your little skipper.
P&N says that Bratt Decor's Dick Crib in Cherry Red is the perfect center piece for this nautical theme nursery.
Bratt Decor, known for its classic and traditional designs in nursery and youth furniture, is introducing a new bedroom group with a decidedly more modern aesthetic.
The Blu collection is made of ash wood and oak veneers and features clean lines with contemporary touches. The line includes two cribs-a four-post canopy version and a panel crib that can be completed with optional upholstered microsuede panels and bumpers. The cribs, $880 each, have stationary side rails and three adjustable mattress levels. They also convert to toddler and day beds.
Other pieces in the line include a convertible changer/dresser, armoire, storage cubby and wall shelves. Blu is offered in wheat and mocha finishes and the upholstered crib panels and bumpers come in sky, sand, fern, sunset and rose colors.
The line is available for sale now and will begin shipping in December.
She's due any day now with twin girls, but Numb3rs actress Diane Farr has it all under control. "When I found out it was twins, I said a lot of expletives," the actress told Life & Style during a July 3 visit to the girls' new nursery in Diane's West Hollywood home. The nursery features a Bratt Decor Venetian Crib in gold (the same one she has for son Beckett) and a Chelsea Double Dresser in Espresso.
Farr loved the crib so much that she "couldn't imagine getting anything different" she says.
The twins' ballerina themed nursery follows Diane's decorating rule of thumb: "You should splurge on a really high-end piece," she says "then one medium piece and a bunch of things to fill it in."
Bratt decor's Blu was featured in Kid's Today Buyer's Guide: Infant Furniture issue.
The simple, contemporary Blu Panel crib from Bratt Decor has fixed side rails, three mattress heights and optional interchangeable micro suede panels and a bumper set. The crib converts to a toddler bed with a separate kit. Available in Mocha or Wheat, $1,048. (888-24-BRATT)

She's not having twins, but a pregnant Halle Berry is buying in sets of two. The 41-year-old and boyfriend, Gabriel Aubry, have two homes--one in the Hollywood Hills and another in Malibu--so she's decided to design identical nurseries for each residence. "Halle doesn't want her baby confused," an insider says. "She's duplicating everything down to the crib, the linens, and even the stuffed animals." Either Halle doesn't know the sex of her baby--due on Valentine's Day--or she isn't saying, because both nurseries are decorated in lots of yellow and light green without a hint of baby blue or pink.
Halle picked out two Bratt Decor Chelsea Sleigh Cribs in Espresso.

Project Nursery asked Bratt Decor's Mary Bauer, for some tips in designing a baby room that will your child will not outgrow too soon. Here's her smart advice.
1. Choose a Sophisticated Color Palette. Think beyond pink and blue, and try a bold, beautiful black palette. Black furnishings are sophisticated, neutral, and wear oh, so well. Colors pop, so if your heart is set on pink or blue, pop them in without sacrificing sophistication.
2. Pick Classic Patterns. Adorn your walls with classic looks and add in age-appropriate toys and accents that speak to the stage your child is enjoying at the moment.
3. Consider Non-Traditional Lighting. We are swooning over this rose globe drop pendant that is romantic and sculptural. This is not what you’d think of for a nursery, but it works! It will continue to work and look amazing as your babe grows.
Whether you're just inspired by the cool colors of nature or you're setting up a room in your mountain getaway for baby, the Modern Lodge look is just right for a soothing nursery. Go for real wood basics accented with neutral fabrics punched up by greens and oranges--and just the right touch of whimsy.
Bratt Decor's new Blu crib and cubbie are featured here as the perfect furnishings to achieve this look.
Swag and celebrities are always a happy mix, and yesterday the love was in full bloom at Jayneoni Moore's Boom Boom Room.

People Are Talking About Hollywood's Designer To The Littlest Stars
CBS Morning Show WJZ
Ron Matz talks to Mary Bauer the owner of Bratt Decor about her baby furniture designs and working with Hollywood's biggest stars.
Buying double of everything is a big mistake. At its most basic, your twins' room will require a pair of cribs and a single diaper-changing station (because as you know, its impossible to change both babies at one time). Other essentials include a nursing chair and plenty of storage (because let's face it, you will acquire a lot of things with twins).
This issue of Fit Pregnancy showcases the nursery of Marcia Cross' twin daughters, Eden and Savannah which has plenty of pieces that will double in function and grow with the girls as they get older. These pieces include 2 Bratt Decor Dick Cribs, a Classic Bratt Decor Armoire with custom painted polka dots, a Dick dresser/changer and a play table for the girls' enjoyment.
Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller show off their Bratt Decor nursery and share the excitement of bringing home their twin boys, Max and Bob!

"It's not bright or overbearing." To make sure Charlie would enjoy being in the nursery, Brooke added a subtle sports theme -- and even a flat screen TV.
The nursery has a retro feel to it inspired by a vintage baseball theme and by 2 Bratt Decor blu cribs that offer a mod look to the room.

The Boom Boom Room, hosted by Jayneoni Moore in NYC, was wall-to-wall packed with vendors, booths, and people. But like any other event, there were a few vendors who -- long after you had passed them by -- you just couldn't stop thinking about.

Brooke Burke is an all-American girl, actress and--let's face it--an incredibly hot mom with three gorgeous daughters and a new baby boy in the house.

Yahoo OMG! And Baby Makes Shopping Spree
August 25, 2009
Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick gear up for the arrival of their baby and shop Bratt Decor while visiting The Juvenile Shoppe, CA.
Because of the recent lead paint issues within the children's toy industry, I feel it prudent to reassure all of our clients that all Bratt Decor's finishes have been tested by an independent internationally respected testing laboratory, and all comply to both U.S. and European standards for lead content.
In other words all of Bratt's products are manufactured free of icky stuff like formaldehyde, lead and toxic dyes.
Our most recent testing is dated August 17, 2007. The conclusion of these tests was that the finishes complied with the United Sates Standard ASTM F963-07 and the European Standard EN71 Part 3: 1994 (including amendment A1: 2000). These test procedures specifically test for lead content and other "heavy" metals.
Please, rest assured, we are ever diligent in our responsibilities to the safety of our clients. We are parents first, and the safety of every child is always at the forefront of our minds.
