When it comes to work/life balance, Mary Bauer has it down. For more than a decade, she's been running Bratt Decor, a specialty line of nursery furniture, together with her husband, Stephen. 
A classically trained artist, Stephen designs all of the company's products. "His careful attention to nuance and detail make each of our pieces a work of art," Mary says. The couple caters to parents looking for unique artisan cribs. 

During the summer, the pair's two teenage boys also help out with the business, doing everything from accounting to advertising. Mary believes involving her sons has been a blessing for everyone: "They have a real appreciation for the work that we do." 

So, how do the Bauers peacefully intertwine business and family? The key, Mary says, "was figuring out what our greatest strengths were and separating responsibilities." Still, she admits their best work comes when their individual viewpoints are combined. "I don't

This article on luxury products discusses the new trends in this growing and diversifying industry, naming Bratt Decor as one the most luxurious names in baby.

Welcome to the new reality of luxury retailing......


Out of nowhere in the summer of 2002, you couldn't walk down the street--in both cities and suburbs--without tripping over a
young mother pushing her baby in a luxurious $800 Dutch-manufactured Bugaboo stroller festooned with fancy accessories.


It seemingly had no rhyme or reason to it.


Where had they come from? Why were so many women plopping down so much cash on an item they'd be dumping as soon as their child got a little bigger?


The answer is that the character of Miranda on HBO's popular Sex and the City was shown ferrying her tot around the city in one of the pricey strollers. Just like that, a new trend was born. And it persists to

Nursery By Design. Don't let the dizzying effects of color palettes and crib styles intimidate you. Take it one piece at a time, and soon you'll have the nursery of your dreams.


Today's nurseries break tradition by moving beyond gender-specific pastels and Mother Goose storylines, and taking a modern turn. Theres no need to limit yourself to customary
baby tones  design a nursery fit to your taste at a pace that suits you.


Contemporary Parenting


Born from a need to simplify our busy lives, today's baby sanctuaries keep it clean with a contemporary look. This industry shift moves away from visual over-stimulation and takes on a less-is-more mentality.


The mod look is super hot right now, says Lindsay Clark of childrens furniture store Bratt Decor, Baltimore. So much so that the company recently launched a new line dedicated to the

Today's Hip Grandparents Spoil They're Grandkids and Themselves



I think about this: Just by waking up, you can be someone's hero. How lucky can you be? Every kid loves their grandparents. It's yours to blow.




Baka, Deeda, Oji, Gunga, Leelee, Uma, Zayda and Wahoo share something beyond membership in the baby-talk hall of fame: These Americans are allergic to the terms 'Grandfather' and 'Grandmother.'



Those well-trod names have become too old. At least for the 39 million baby boomers who are now exploring the even more youthful world of Babies 'R' Us.



'The name thing is an issue,' observes Chris Crosby, publisher of Grand, a magazine for grandparents. 'We all grew up in a culture that put a negative connotation on the terminology we used. Like 'Don't be such an old grandma.' You think of this old person hunched over in a rocker with a bun on her head. This generation is anything but

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???
I love knowing how it will touch the lives and hold

I am a woman of many passions, and chief among them is my love of family. When my husband, Stephen, and I were expecting our first child, we were both over joyed, overwhelmed. Both Stephen and I love design, and were not satisfied with what was available in the marketplace for furnishings. So, we designed a beautiful wrought iron baby crib, and that was the beginning of our business, Bratt Decor, and our family. 
This company is so tied to my heart. It draws on my love of art and design, and the miraculous time in one’s life when they become a parent. I don’t believe there’s any other single event that changes a person like loving and caring for your own child. I get to work with my husband every day, and together we put reflections of our definition of beauty into the world. It’s a really good job.

Our children are unquestionably the most important part of our lives. We want to do everything for them. We want to be everything to them. And we are willing to do almost anything to look like heroes in their eyes. This is the unspoken beauty of parenting. And of course, we want their bedrooms to be an expression of our children's personalities, to unite character with class. We want them to love their rooms, to feel connected to them.


Where individuality in a bedroom will be expressed by your unique ideas, there are some basic guidelines in a bedroom's design to balance form and function. Some local experts have offered their advice to help you successfully accomplish this goal.



The Basic Theme



Of course, being so passionate about our children can cause us to make some illogical decisions, especially when it comes to their interests and desires. If your eight year old son

Chelsea Lifetime Crib and Dresser/Changer are Maternity Must Haves

Each day that the waistline of an expectant mother expands a bit more only adds to the wonderment and excitement that accompanies the wait for baby. Some find solace in their last few
months of quiet, while others dive into preparations for the big day.




For me, the nesting stage begins the second the pregnancy test strip jump starts my heart rate with the a"rmation of what is to come, and lasts until I strap my seat belt on for the !nal trip to the hospital.




For this series I am sharing with you some great pieces I have discovered over my last two pregnancies: beautiful heirloom quality nursery pieces and décor, fashionable, fun and cozy !nds for newborns, and some great essentials that I think make the delivery and recovery a little more enjoyable.

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

Atlanta-based interior decorator Gretchen Edwards decorates hundreds of homes but when it came time for a very personal job she turned to Bratt Decor to make her decisions a little easier.



When it came time to decorate her first child's nursery, interior designer Gretchen Edwards had to deal with a hard to please client herself.



Atlanta-based interior designer Gretchen Edwards spends her days creating rooms for her clients to love. Making decorating decisions is routine business for her, but she wasnt so certain when it came time to create a nursery for hr own child. When you work with so many people with so many tastes, you end up being attracted to many styles and its hard to narrow down the choices, she says. It was more difficult to make a decision because I was worried that I'd come across a new idea or a new fabric that would wow

When I first lay eyes on Bratt Decor’s gorgeous furniture, I could completely understand why the stars are totally in love with these furniture pieces! Apparently Mario Lopez and Courtney Mazza agree with me as not only did they have Bratt Decor’s President, Mary Bauer, decorate their nursery, they opted for my all-time favorite collections!



This Summer, Mary Bauer, flew out to Los Angeles to meet with Mario and Courtney to design an elegant and peaceful nursery for their baby. The room was to be unisex as the couple decided not to find out the sex. “It’s one of the few surprises left.” said Lopez to designer Bauer.



Because Courtney loves the European elegance of crystal chandeliers and Venetian glass, the Chelsea collection in antique silver (did I mention this was my favorite?) was a perfect choice.



The designer was on a deadline as the entire nursery make over was being filmed
