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.
Sometimes it's the most marvelously simple things that stay with us over time. Perhaps that's why Bratt Decor harkened back to a classic first reader when it named two of its bedroom furniture and accessories groups. "In the Dick and Jane collections, there aren't a lot of frills," states Mary Bauer, President, who formed the company with husband Stephen almost a decade ago. "The lines are classic and clean. You can take a room anywhere with these pieces--from shabby chic floral or vintage cowboy." Such design flexibility is also true of its third wood ...

High-end infant furniture seems to typically fall into two vastly different categories. One category is composed of pieces constructed to fit in with the modern, high-design homes of many of today's young parents. These pieces often feature clean lines, a low profile and minimal fuss. But some parents desire nursery looks that remind them of days gone by, and the high-end designs profiled here fit the bill--cribs with tall posts, hand-painted designs, vintage patterns, intricate detailing. All these elements combine to offer classic, timeless looks that can be passed down ...
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.

Safely and securely adding a mirror to the nursery can make the room look larger, brighter, and more sophisticated. Also, babies just love to look at themselves. Here’s what you need to know to add a beautiful mirror to your baby’s room.
Securely fasten the mirror to the wall. This is the most important detail when adding mirrors, artwork or any decor that could fall. A cable wire hung across a single hook or nail is completely out of the question. Thread wire through D hooks on the back of the mirror and tie it off. Note, each D hook will need its own hook in the wall. Always hang your mirror on a stud. Make sure you are using hangers that are rated to handle the weight of your mirror. When mirror is in position, Run your wire through the hangers and secure.
The Baltimore Sun highlights the new trend in decorating your nusery, which is sophisticated and hip, just like the mom's doing it. Bratt Decor reveals the latest trend in nursery today: cherry red! It's hot.
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.

Mary Bauer and her husband Stephen claim their story started like many others. Young, in love, and expecting their first child, they excitedly set about creating their dream nursery. It was 1995 and choices were limited. Designer baby furniture simply didn't exist, so they invented it themselves. Bratt Decor was born, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Sold exclusively at Gigi Brooks in the UK, Bratt Decor offers timeless, elegant and original furniture for your baby's nursery. We sat down with Mary to find out more about this exquisite brand and the husband and wife team behind its success.
