A spring tradition in Washington is the D.C. Design House makeover of a prominent home in the District. This year, a house that has been in the same family since the 1950s was made-over by 23 local designers and landscapers. A seven-bedroom Spring Valley house at 4951 Rockwood Parkway N.W. is this year's DC Design House. It's a fundrasier for the Children's National Medical Center. The nursery is a stunning contemporary vision designed by Elizabeth Krial and featuring Bratt Decor's grand soho crib with loft.

Ali Landry literally burst onto the scene when she starred in a now-classic Doritos Super Bowl commercial and became instantly famous as the Doritos Girl. Ten years, innumerable career highlights and one adorable two-year-old daughter later, Ali has lost none of her energy or drive. In fact, she just launched Belle Parish, a childrens clothing line due out in Spring 2010.


Here, Ali gives us the scoop on her and her daughter Estelas Top 10 baby items:


1. Fave baby ride: Ive got four, a Bugaboo, a Chicco, a Jeep and a Silvercross. For the next baby, I would love to try an Uppa Baby stroller or an Orbit.


2. Fave crib: Bratt Decor. It is so gorgeous, I wish she could stay in it forever!


3. Fave sippy cup: The new Tilty sippy cup  and Mabels Labels to make sure she doesnt lose it!


4. Fave high chair: Peg Perego.

Think Angelina and Zahara with matching designer handbags; dismiss it as the Brangelina brand of eccentricity and venture winking at the modern-day version of the oldest human impulse--to behold an untrammeled frontier. If you can't fit cookie baking into your already jam-packed schedule, its defensible.


But as an up-to-the-minute urbanite, if you still dress up your kid in top-to-toe pink or a character associated with big corporations, like Barney or any Disney character, you ignore the call of natural evolution. With almost all high end items showing up in miniature sizes, it's time to treat the little princes and divas like their adult counterparts.


Uber cool styles are cutting-edge and hip: mix nursery rhymes, rock tees and hot colours. As pint-sized versions of adult tastes overwhelm Little Miss Muffet, the hit tour belts out Crib Rock Couture. There are even lullaby cover versions of songs by rock legends such as Coldplay, Pink

What makes Bratt Decor unique simple and classic style paired with quality craftsmanship.


The functionality of the line as well as it's ability to be gender neutral is amazing. For example, my daughter Henley has the Heritage Crib in white with the bunny finials. If my next child is a boy, I just trade out the bunnies for airplane finials and it is now for a boy.


Most convertible cribs will convert to toddler beds, but let's face it they really are not very attractive. With the conversion rails (sold separately) The Bratt Decor wooden cribs convert to the sweetest little toddler beds. Also, another genius design element is that many of the dressers actually have a changing table that attaches to the top and can be removed later. We have the Jane Crib and Dresser Changer in my other daughters room (yes they're twins) , with the crib converting to a

Versatility and multifunction have always been big in youth furniture. Lofts, under-bed drawers and trundle beds all make keeping a kid's room organized and user friendly an easier task. But the furniture in today's market goes beyond solving storage and space issues, offering a life span through college and beyond.



A MATURE SENSIBILITY

Youth Furniture manufacturers, keen on parent's tight purse strings, are introducing collections that easily transition through the years. Youth furnishings are built with a lot of versatility, says Jackie Hirschhaut, vice president of the American Home Furnishing Alliance (AHFA), High Point, N.C. I think what manufacturers are trying to do is come up with looks that are appealing to youngsters as well as teens, so that a parent can hopefully make a single investment and have it satisfy the child throughout that period.

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.

No over-the-top nursery for Jeri Ryan and husband Christophe Emé, a chef in L.A. "We wanted a room that could grow with our daughter and was a little more sophisticated," the actress says. But when it came time to choose a crib, Christophe couldnt resist indulging Gisele, now 6 months, with furniture fit for royalty: "the most ornate iron canopy princess bed!" describes Ryan. The couple designed the room around the Bratt Decor crib, adding a custom changing table and dresser, wood floors and green walls for a "soothing, relaxing" ambiance. The one must-have item for every nursery? "Comfort," Ryan says. Thats the most important thing.

I wanted something very soothing and [my husband] Christophe and I both were pretty adamant about not wanting over the top baby, baby, baby, you know, with murals. We wanted a room that could grow with her and was

Mary and Stephen Bauer were recognized by Baltimore SmartCEO as one of Baltimore's 50 Fastest Growing Companies! Congratulations to the Bauer's and Bratt Decor!


BUSINESS DESCRIPTION


Bratt Decor designs and sells furniture and accessories for babies and children. The company's goal is to bring high design aesthetics found in other segments of the furniture
market to the children's market. Bratt Decor designs and manufactures a wide range of furnishings and sells them directly through its stores and Web site.


KEY FACTORS OF COMPANY'S CURRENT GROWTH


Growth is hard, a true blessing, but is constantly challenging. Over the past three years, the company has grown from a staff of about seven to more than 30, and dealing with the fallout of that alone has been an education. Additionally, Bratt Decor has opened offices in Asia and has had to learn to manage staff and
factories internationally. It requires lots of travel

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

Furniture is perhaps the biggest purchase, both in size and price that parents make for their children's rooms.


According to New York-based Easy Analytic Software Inc., youth bedroom furniture will have one of the biggest sales increases of all furniture products between 2006 and 2011. In fact, only entertainment furniture is expected to see greater sales increases.


Both youth bedroom and infant furniture are expected to grow sales faster than the 27% projected for all furniture in the next five years. EASI projects a 29.5% increase in sales of youth bedroom, from $5.08 billion in 2006 to $6.58 billion in 2011 and a 28.5% increase for infant furniture, from $1.18 billion last year to $1.52 billion in 2011.


Even though the projected numbers and some manufacturers are optimistic, there still are sections of the country and the industry where the economy is soft and business is described as flat. However, with about 4.1

Marcia Cross' twins Savannah and Eden Mahoney's nursery is completely decked out by Bratt Decor. Back in December, Bratt Decor's Mary Bauer flew to L.A., where she met with Marcia and her husband, Tom Mahoney. She worked with the famous couple to create a gorgeous nursery for babies Eden and Savannah.


Mary said, "Marcia was radiant, kind, and easy to work with and Tom was absolutely beaming! They are a beautiful couple, with a gorgeous nursery and it was a great pleasure to work with both of them."


Marcia and Tom chose the entire dick collection in white for a pure, classic look. The nursery walls are painted with Benjamin Moores Spring Lilac for the walls because Marcia wanted girly, but not too frilly.

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.
