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.
Mary, Bauer, co-owner of Bratt Decor, a high-end Baltimore nursery and children's furniture store, believes living and buying green will one day be something that comes naturally.
"I think it will just be a way of life. I don't think it's going to be remarkable anymore," shares Bauer, who is passionate about marrying high style with eco-friendly choices.
"That's always been our philosophy to do things as responsibly as possible," she says noting that in recent years "I think people in general want to be more responsible and want to do things in a greener way." She reports that about one in five clients specifically request organic products. thats compared to zero just a few years ago."
Client interest is driving Bratt Decor to take its organic offerings to the next level, expanding from bedding and onesies to an organic mattress line, expected to debut in early 2008. "There's some research

Kids Today's second annual retail innovators list recognizes retailers who are meeting the challenges of growing their businesses in an increasingly competitive marketplace by being creative, enterprising and steadfast. More and more of them are thinking outside the box and when it comes to engaging customers, either with free services and design assistance, websites or educational classes and gift registries. All of Kids Today's innovators are independents and many of them family owned. Some stores are newcomers to the industry with a year or two under their proverbial belts, while others have been in business for more than 60 years. But most importantly, to us, is the number if these innovative retailers who carry and sell Bratt Decor products as their key vendors.
back from Louisville, KY for the 2010 Spring Conference for independent retailers in the baby and kids industry,and we had a blast. First of all, Louisville is a very charming city, clean, friendly and with a decidedly sophisticated edge. We loved the cool restaurants, and shops. The Museum Hotel was amazing, and was actually just written up in Conde Nast. Check it out, if you're going to Louisville.<><> The show was small and exciting. We saw some of our wonderful store owners from around the country. We saw Debbie from Beautiful Beginnings in Chicago, who is doing great with the line. Spent some time with two of our favorite Left Coast Girls who own The Juvenile Shop in Sherman Oaks, California. If you're ever out there, stop in because the store is beautiful and the service is unparalleled. There was cool new products on the market that you may love.

Bratt Decor's Chelsea Sleigh Crib in antique silver is featured in this fabulous Cribs and Nursery Furniture feature!
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.
Pink and gold have reigned supreme in baby girl nurseries for quite sometime, but Tamera Mowry's gorgeous rendition, designed by Ms. Shalena Smith of Gaga Designs, is in a league of its own. The tone on tone pink striped walls set the stage for the gorgeous white carved lifetime crib by Bratt Decor, which is draped in silk suspended from a golden crown. The luxurious custom designed silk bedding, with gold bows, by Bratt Decor, finishes the look with understated elegance. Other great touches like the personalized ceiling medallion, crystal chandelier and ultra luxe rocker add sophistication and comfort. We love the personal touches throughout, like the tiny stool in the corner which Tamera has had for years.

Bratt Decor's kid-size Dick craft table has a hideaway compartment under the table top for storing toys, games, craft items and more. The table, $179, is offered in black, cherry red, white and navy. A set of two chairs retails for $194.
Here's what we like: A shamelessly feminine nursery that manages to be posh and sophisticated as the same time--much like a certain little girl who lives at the Plaza Hotel. Modern, romantic and whimsical at the same time, this Eloise-inspired nursery reminds us of Dior's New Look. Sometimes it's OK to just enjoy being a girl.
Check out Bratt Decor's ultra feminie furnishings (Jane crib and changer/dresser) featured throughout this Eloise-inspired nursery! We like this look too!
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.
Pacticality, simplicity and eco-friendly furniture and accessories are todays watchwords when talking about parents furnishing their childrens nurseries, bedrooms and play-rooms. When it comes to play areas, organization iskey, says Angel Fischer, an interior designer with Kirk Designs. Things have to be functional as wellas fun. Its not just about looking cute.
Most of our clients are concerned with how to manage the chaos, and they are looking for things that are durable, can be cleaned easily and are not tremendously expensive. And no one is doing themed rooms.
While most adults groan at the thought of shag carpeting anywhere, Fischer points out that it can be very forgiving when it comes to spills and can hide alot of flaws. She also recommends Pottery Barn as a great place to shop: The furniture can take a decent beating from children and not be utterly destroyed.
Consumers are also looking for eco-friendly products. This
Sometimes a feeling or notion sets the tone for the design of a child's room. Maybe its the architecture of the home or the room itself that stirs emotion.
