Despite medical advancements and modern capabilities, many parents-to-be opt to leave the sex of their unborn baby unknown. Many of today's pregnant moms are in search of ideas and inspiration for a neutral nursery's and boy do we have ideas!
When buying a crib for a baby whose sex will remain unknown until its arrival, its best not to lean too much in either direction, i.e. a crib that's too girly or too masculine. You can't go wrong however, with any number of the wood or iron cribs that Bratt Decor offers. Our cribs from the Heritage, Dick, Chelsea, Casablanca, and Venetian lines come in a variety of colors that can be played up either way once the baby's sex is determined.
These cribs are sleek and classic in design and transcend sex. A way then to increase femininity or masculine appeal once the baby is born is all in the bedding.

Hey, Daddy Warbucks, you already bought her the diamond earrings -- that "push present" to thank her for nine months of pregnancy and hours of labor -- but now Mother's Day is approaching. So for the new moms out there, we consulted Bel Bambini, a luxe baby shop in West Hollywood. If it's good enough for Jessica Alba, who is registered there, why not your Baby Mama?
Part hot rod, part stroller, this "Roddler" is a swank ride for the little one. Think custom paint job, an iPod docking station and stereo sound system. The tail lights shine when braking for those traffic jams on Rodeo Drive -- and the stroller even comes with vanity plates. SPOILED, maybe?

Many adjectives can apply to a nursery. Sweet, practical, efficient? Sure. Elegant, luxurious, indulgent? Not usually. But it's the latter group of descriptors that Shannon Jernigan wanted for the room of her son, Cole.
The lavish design started with soft green and blue polka-dot fabrics that the Birmingham, Alabama, homeowner found irresistible. For Shannon, the fact that they were silks not the thrown-in-the-washing-machine cottons typically found in nurseries only added to the appeal. I like things dressy, explains Shannon, who worked with designer Jenny Edwards on the room.
Dressy Cole's room is, swathed in silks that beautifully harmonize with the silvery sparkle of the baby cups, rattles, and picture frames that accessorize shelves.

When Kelly Rowley tucks her sons Cale, 3, and Gabe, 4, into bed each night, all sorts of playful creatures-from painted dragonflies to appliqued elephants-join them. To create the boys' rooms, Kelly enlisted the help of interior designer and friend Cathy Kramer, who based the room styles on each child's disposition. In any room, it's important to pick up the personality of the person for whom youre designing, Kramer says. For me that's what makes designing so much fun.
With personality to spare, Cale and Gabe gave Kramer a lot to work with. Gabe is all boy-rough and tumble and very outdoorsy, and he loves frogs, Kramer says. I could envision him bringing frogs home in his pockets, so a pond theme was right up his alley. Cale is boyish, too, but in a softer, quieter way;
