Baby Style. Bratt's gorgeous Chelsea sleigh crib and changer are the number one choice for the "Traditional Nursery," as Victorian glamour is combined with a modern interpretation from Bratt's designer Stephen Bauer, a hand applied patina in stunning antique silver.
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.
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.

What does a baby really need? You'll find out in this article. One great classic piece, is the Classic Beadboard Armoire by Bratt Decor. Coral Nafie, retal buyer and interiror decorator, loves the smaller size that lets kids put away their own things.
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 ...

Ribbit! Ribbit! Roar! From Lions to lily pads, animal friends abound in two boys' rooms.
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;
