Style Watch: How To Create Easy Elegance In The Nursery
Elegance is defined as: the quality of being graceful and stylish in appearance or manner; style. Mary Bauer, President and style maker of Bratt Decor, unpacks the mystery of creating your very own perfect, elegant nursery.
Ms. Bauer advises to take your time and do research before you buy anything. Pinterest is a great place to start. Decide exactly how you want your room to feel and to function. Elegance in décor is achieved by combining the right balance of color, objects, light and texture.
A primary consideration in any room design, is the size of the space. That will dictate many of your decisions. If your room is average size, you’re in good shape and there are lots of choices and options to work with. Extraordinary sized rooms, either large or small, require additional considerations.

Today’s grandparents are younger, healthier, and far more active than ever. And this generation of parents absolutely love it! We see mothers and daughters shopping together for not one, but two nurseries. This is because grandma, or more often, Gigi, is putting a nursery in her house too. With many new moms holding down full time jobs, it’s an amazing gift to have grandparents that can help with children. It just makes sense to have a dedicated space in the grandparents home for baby. Today’s nurseries are so much more design oriented than baby rooms of the past. There are beautiful furniture collections in every style imaginable, tons of luxury crib bedding collections, amazing art, floor coverings, lighting, and more. So, with so much to choose from, what do you really need?
First on the list is to purchase a new crib that meets all the current safety standards. This is

In the November issue of Parents, we took a look at raising happy, confident girls—but it looks like The Real talk show co-host Tamera Mowry-Housley has made that a priority for her baby girl from the get-go. The moment little Ariah Talea Housley arrived home earlier this year, she was greeted by a room exuding "Power in Pink"—what mommy and designer, Shalena Smith, came to call the official theme.
"The boy world is just so saturated with blues and reds and earthy colors and I really wanted to go girl for her nursery," says Mowry-Housley, who welcomed son Aden in 2012.
While many girl's rooms sport pink and white, Ariah's space is striped in pink and gold, equal parts ethereal softness and regal strength. "I truly believe in balance: to be kind and sweet and gentle, but that doesn't mean that you don't have an inner strength —and that's what I love
Project Nursery dishes about the wow factor of round cribs. In a recent article they say "Many parents choose the crib to be the focal point of the nursery, after all it's going to be the favorite resting space of the real star of the nursery - your baby! Using a round crib automatically takes your nursery design up a notch and will be the first thing people notice when they enter the space. And, I don't know about you, but I find something inherently cozy about the round shape." We agree and are thrilled to see both our Chelsea Darling Oval Cribs and J'adore Iron Oval (metal) baby crib among their favorites.

Why Your Bratt Decor Crib Is a Safe Choice For Baby
Choosing your baby’s crib is a huge responsibility, and chief among the considerations is safety. Babies spend more time alone in their crib then any other environment, so ensuring that this space is safe is essential. Even if you are on a tight budget, we do not recommend purchasing used or older model cribs. They probably don’t meet current safety standards, and you have no way of knowing if the structure or hardware has been compromised. There are plenty of places to save money in the nursery, but the crib is not the place to do so. When you purchase a Bratt Décor crib, you can rest assured that you are not only making a beautiful and timeless choice, you are making a safe and responsible choice for your baby.
