Crown jewels of the nursery: Bratt Decor Chelsea Darling
In a few short months, the wait will be over. We’ll finally be able to “meet” Kate and William’s royal bundle of joy. As people around the world speculate on what name the couple will decide upon and who the godparents will be, our thoughts are focused on more “important” things: Like what stroller they’ll be using and what clothes the new babe will be dressed in. That being said, we turn our attention over to the royal nursery. If Kate just so happens to be one of our loyal readers (hey, don’t laugh; it could happen!), may we offer a suggestion? Bratt Decor’s Chelsea Darling line exudes an elegance like no other room decor we’ve seen. Not only does the antique silver finish on this collection make a unique statement, but its versatility extends the life beyond the diaper days. Once

Chelsea Darling is a triumph in design, combining luxury looks with engineered brilliance. This crib starts out as a cradle, and then, with minimal work, grows into a beautiful oval baby crib.

Alexa Prisco isn't known for sitting back and just letting things happen—this Jersey girl takes charge! So, it's no surprise that the new mom didn't just buy a crib and a few outfits for her little girl's nursery.
The Glam Fairy turned the loft area of her New Jersey apartment into daugther McKayla's nursery with the help of Bratt Decor's Mary Bauer. After gathering ideas from baby magazines, Alexa told Mary that she wanted the room to be glam and girly. "The one thing I really did not want was for it to look like my closet," Alexa told Style. "That has a punchy hot pink and black, a more boutique look. I wanted to make sure that whatever I brought up here, it was sophisticated."
She wanted the room to be cozy and beautiful while still allowing McKayla to have her own identity. Shunning the bright white that's often typical in
one are the days when an infant's room had to be pastel. Today's babies are more likely to hang out in room that's black or gray and accented with pops of color and sparkling accessories.
First comes love, then comes marriage and then comes time to pick out the baby carriage — and decorate the nursery.<> Already the tabloids are speculating on the room where England's heir to the throne will lay his royal head when Prince William's and Kate Middleton's baby is born in July. And even though Kim Kardashian and Kanye West aren't quite in sync with the old rhyme, the gossip magazines are anticipating the extravagant nursery the couple will add to their $11 million mansion in Bel Air.

Here is where your inner artist can come to life, manifesting itself in a beautiful, peaceful space for your new baby-with your own unique touches. Mary Bauer (of Bratt Décor) shares some incredible inspiration rooms on the next few pages. The nursery is where you’ll spend a lot of time together, at least for the first few weeks of baby’s life. Sleeping will be the activity highest on baby’s list of things to do, followed closely by nursing. It suits you well to make the space as comfortable as possible. Forget the typical fads and cartoon characters that people traditionally go for. Open yourself up to the incredible options that will give your baby a strong and stylish start. Choose a focal point, something that stands out for you, or something that holds great sentimental meaning for you.
How did you get started in the children’s furniture business?
My husband, Stephen, and I began Bratt Decor in 1995 when we were expecting our very first baby. The world of designer looks for children has really blossomed over the past 18 years, but back then, there was nothing—no Pottery Barn Kids, no Restoration Hardware, no Contemporary Designs, nothing. We decided to start our own company, believing that if you gave moms sophisticated choices for a truly designer nursery experience, they would respond. You can’t imagine what an unusual concept that was at the time. People thought we were crazy.
Where do you look for inspiration for new ideas?
I look at fashion, art and pop culture. Really, all design is connected, and ultimately, I think it’s all an outward reflection of the universal experiences we all walk through daily. For example, when the huge economic meltdown happened a few years back, everything
I’ve always been a big fan of iron cribs. There’s something regal and timeless about them. Years ago, you could only own an iron crib if you wanted to spend thousands of dollars on one, but luckily, thanks to some talented designers and retailers, there are tons of options—in style and price! I used Bratt Decor’s Venetian Crib in my first daugter’s nursery. I loved how the four posts could be used with or without the cross bar, and if I didn’t want the height at all, I could remove the posts as well. Options are always good.
I loved how the Venetian Crib didn’t look as feminine as some of the other iron options, and with its slate, pewter and gold color choices, it would work in any nursery! Here’s a few of my other favorite options out there. Bratt Decor’s J’Adore Crib-Cradle actually converts from a cradle
"I had the pleasure of designing the nursery room for AJ McLean's first baby, Ava Jaymes. AJ and Rochelle were so much fun to work with and I enjoyed every minute of it. From the pink and leopard bedding, jeweled accent pillows to the gold stump side table, this little room was designed to be edgy-sweet." Bratt Decor's Chelsea Lifetime crib and changer/dresser were chosen for this luxury, celebrity nursery.
Who does Glam Fairy, Alexa Prisco, star of Jerseyliscious and the Glam Fairy call when she need a totally fabulous nursery? Mary Bauer of Bratt Decor, of course. Ms. Bauer met with the Style network star for an initial design meeting, and then went to work completely redesigning a loft space into a high style nursery. Watch for the complete process as it unfolds on an upcoming episode of Jerseyliscous.

Charles Neal Interiors balances Hollywood glam with Southern warmth for R&B producer Tricky Stewart’s first California home.
For Ellah, Stewart’s infant daughter, Neal focused on combining textures to create depth. Ella’s crib is covered with a sheer silk cloth edged with a boa, and her drapes are embroidered with tone-on-tone detailing. The furniture is plush and oversized, creating a whimsical aesthetic that isn’t, as Neal says, “too girly or princess-y.” The Stewart residence was completed in December 2010 and remains a modern, glamorous LA home with just enough warmth and charm to make it elegant and comfortable.
