People Magazine's photo spread of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's twins Max and Emme revealed their lush and luxurious nursery that included two Bratt Decor Casablanca Cribs in slate, Art 4 Kids' Madison Bedding and an ivory Max Daniel blanket. However, Parents Magazine is up in arms because they are concerned about what they say are major safety hazards in the room:



The pillows, stuffed animals and blankets in the cribs and draped canopies are suffocation hazards
Bows tied onto the crib slats are choking hazards.
The open window doesn't have a window guard.
While it's true that these concerns are valid, I think the editors of Parents are jumping the gun. As we learned with Brooke Burke's nursery for daughter Heaven Rain and Baby Boy Charvet, the room was styled and staged for a beautiful photo shoot. Most likely, all hazards would be removed before the babies are put in the cribs. Also,

Dream rooms and nurseries

Your child’s first surroundings should be special – and safe



Gone are the days of only two room-decorating choices for your little one: blue or pink for boy or girl and, if you wanted to get crazy, the occasional gender-neutral pale green or yellow. Emerging trends in nursery and children’s room décor have opened up a multitude of possibilities to parents and kids. Decorating themes, murals, 3-D effects, textures and patterns can give your child a vibrant sanctuary, while meeting the needs of every mommy to be.



Studios like Little Crown Interiors are quickly becoming the norm for parents who want efficiency, safety and the latest décor. Owners and co-founders of Little Crown Interiors, Gerri Panebianco and Naomi Coe, have established themselves as visionaries of one-of-a-kind spaces for children.



“It’s really impossible for us to give our body of work an overall style, as every project is uniquely different

Daine Farr returned from her June honeymoon in the Maldives with a special souvenier: a baby on the way! And it's a good thing: The star who plays FBI agent Megan Reeves on season two of the CBS hit Numb3rs, could hardly wait to start a family with her new hubby, marketing executive, Seung Chung. Seung got me an ovulation kit for Valentine's day, for months before we got married! Diane, 33, tells Life & Style.





Their baby boy is not due until March, but Diane, a former interior designer, already has the nursery finished, down to the last detail. Her favorite purchase? A metal crib. "It's antique gold and very simple, the most beautiful crib I've ever seen," says Diane. The angel cutout that rests behind it was a find at a yard sale 10 years ago.





As for the color scheme, the actress stayed away from the usual

Stephen Bauer traveled almost 8,000 miles from South Africa to Baltimore to the land he now calls home. Trained as a commercial illustrator, he arrived in Baltimore 20 years ago, at the age of 21, with $1,200 in his wallet, and a dream to build a life in a new country.


Mary Sell grew up in Dundalk. Her mom couldn't read or write, but she did her best to support her family.


Life was difficult; we were very poor, Mary remembers. My mom worked as a maid on and off, and we also rented rooms in our house.


Mary worked at various jobs to get through high school and then college.


I went to school at Towson [University], she says. I received a Pell grant and worked two jobs. Mom died three weeks after I graduated college.


Mary took a job in marketing in Los Angeles where she learned the business from the bottom

Go for the gold! That’s what I keep telling myself as I wrestle with my
latest nursery design for my little girl arriving in no time. I can’t
help but be inspired by the contrasting metals and shimmery metallics
that have made a huge splash in the world of interiors. And now, like
most hot trends, they’ve made their way into the world of nursery.
Fortunately for me, our favorite children’s furniture makers do not
disappoint! So the question remains, should I really go for a gold crib?


The Jenny Lind crib is a true classic. Seeing it painted in gold, as a DIY project on A Small Snippet, makes my heart skip a beat.

Bratt Decor has been rocking glamorous gold cribs from the very beginning. It’s no wonder why they often catch the attention of expecting celebrities.

Furniture design powerhouse Nursery Works recently debuted a stunning, modern crib named

Perhaps you caught the segment this week on Extra that featured the gorgeous neutral nursery for baby Dominic by Bratt Decor. But i case you missed, we caught up with the talented designer and Bratt Decor President, Mary Bauer, who designed the nursery for Mario & Courtney.“I had such a great time working with the Lovely Lopez’s the first time around, that going back was a bit like going home,“ says Mary Bauer.
Once again, the Lopez’s decided not to find out the sex of the baby but Mrs. Lopez was sure about the look she wanted: glamour, sophistication and comfort. The result was a beautiful nursery in black, grays and white. The bold wall paper was softened filling the room by leaving some walls white and adding sumptuous white velvet bedding and window treatments. Also white was the round flokati rug, leather nursing chair and child sofa. Now that

Last week "Moderndad" mentioned the prams Jennifer Lopez has for her new twins, but there are other baby products to gawk at in the People Magazine article too. For instance, the matching "Casablanca Cribs" in the nursery. Even though the picture in People makes it look like neither child has ever spent a moment of their lives in the cribs.



The Casablanca Premier crib is adjustable, meets all the US safety requirements and has a drop front gate that's integrated into the "scroll bar." And if a big, vintage-looking metal crib with a lot of ornate scrolls matches your design style, then this is the crib for you.



The Casablanca Premier is available as a custom order in burnished gold, silver or satin white for $950 from Bratt Decor.

The prestigious industry publication, Baby and Children’s Product News, chose our gorgeous Chelsea Darling in antique silver as their cover girl.
The Chelsea Darling is way beyond a crib. It is an oval nursery sleep system that is actually 3 beds in 1. The first bed your newborn will use, a sophisticated cradle, turns into a beautiful crib and then an elegant daybed. Bratt Decor’s oval sleep systems combine brilliant design with luxury styling to keep your baby surrounded in style and sophistication from birth throughout the toddler years. The white finish is soft, clean, and pure with light hand distressing giving it a timeless look. The cradle pad and mattress are included in the purchase price. Everything you need to convert it from a cradle to a crib is included. Opt for the daybed kit and continue your look throughout your child's toddler years. The overall area is slightly smaller

CBB choose Bratt Decor's Venetian 3-in-1 crib as "The Best Iron Crib on the Market"

-------


During pregnancy, one of first things new parents think about buying is the crib. It's also the purchase that requires the most lead time, so it's wise to start weighing your options around your second trimester. Like most purchases, there are so many variables to consider. Well, we've been there, done that, and want to help guide you through this important decision.



Best Iron Crib


Name: Bratt Decor Venetian 3-in-1

Price: $966

Why It's Great: Iron cribs evoke such vintage glamour and elegance, it's no wonder they're popular for girls' rooms (but they can work for boys', too). Available in four finishes, Bratt Decor's Venetian crib gives you multiple looks for one price. Add the four posters for a poster bed, or add the cross bars and fabric for a canopy-style bed. It also converts to a toddler

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

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.

What inspires you?
Everything. I’m inspired by the love of a new family, the washed out colours of an old barn, and the never-ending symphony that is nature all around us. ??

What do you love most about designing nursery furniture???

Think of a kid's room with a sea motif and you imagine the obvious: cute fish and billowing seaweed painted on the walls, a poster print or two of sailboats, a "Finding Nemo" bedspread.


But when it came to his own bedroom, 4-year-old Caden Ridenour got something out of the ordinary.


Because he's the fourth and youngest child in his family, his mom, Christa Ridenour, felt he deserved something special.
"He always got lots of leftovers and hand-me-downs," Ridenour reasoned.


She and her husband, Cary, decided to convert the office of their four-bedroom Foothills home into a fifth bedroom for Caden. Then, in search of some ideas, Christa paid a visit to one of her favorite Tucson stores.


Susan Luedtke, owner of The Stork's Nest of the Old Pueblo, a children's boutique, showed Ridenour some fish-themed bedding that seemed to capture Caden's personality.


"They're not your typical fish," Ridenour says of the design, which

Although your new arrival may not be heir to the British throne, he—or she—is no less deserving of the royal treatment. Take inspiration for your own royal nursery from these grand designs.

Venetian View
Take away the present-day accoutrements and this Venetian-themed nursery could have come straight out of 15th-century Italy. Softened by white furnishings and plush accessories, this regal yet minimalist room stylishly welcomes a new life into the world—your own little renaissance.

Royal Prince
Every element has been thoughtfully designed in this cheerful nursery. A paneled ceiling and wallpaper border draw attention upward and keep baby's eyes engaged as he drifts off to sleep. Layers of curtains and silky valances help to shade the spectacular space when it’s time for the royal nap.

Minimalist Magic
While the royals aren't historically minimalists, that doesn't mean you can't be! From its neutral palette to its rustic wooden walls, this unadorned

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.

4. White Always Works. When in doubt, start
