A man's home might be his castle, but his children's rooms are their kingdoms, lavished nowadays with kiddie-customized accouterments from crib to computer station.
If a boy wants to sleep in a custom-built space ship, with fiber optic lighting and engine roar sound effects, he can. If a girl wants her bed in a super-sized doll house, she can have it, according to Diane DeWald, owner of Mega Kids Inc. in Park Shore Plaza. De Wald has been concocting the fantasy beds her clients request for the past 12 years, as well as providing more typical juvenile furniture in her 12,000 square-foot showroom.
It depends upon the age, she explained. Infants don't say much about their room design, she quipped, so the mothers make the nursery decisions. Right now, many are influenced by celebrity moms. They see what the stars have for their babies and they want the same for their own.

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

The gorgeous little iron oval crib, is now available from Bratt Decor.
What does it take to put together a fantastic nursery? It turns out you don't need a huge budget, interior designer pals or even a perfect space--just a little creativity and sense of what will work for your family. In fact, the whole process was a lot easier than P&N's very pregnant AMY BRAYFIELD expected it to be--which is a good thing, since she waited till pretty much the last possible minute to prep her own nursery.
Things to consider.....
You're going to need a crib and a storage center, but beyond that, think about what you and your baby will really need. Some moms can forego, say, a changing table completely, while other moms swear their changing table was an essential they couldn't live without.
When it comes to furniture, the key is to think about how you'll really use it. If it's important to you to be able to move
New parents spend between $5,000 and $15,000 to decorate Baby's nursery, according to the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association, driving a $7.3 billion industry. That's a lot of money to spend on a room Junior can't enjoy until he's crawling.
Parents spend a lot of time in their new baby's room, which is why some parents consider their own decorating likes and dislikes when creating a nursery.
Sarah Horn, owner of SHA, said parents are looking for custom pieces to put in nurseries. "People are liking to create their own now, versus buying something off the shelf," she said. "Once somebody realizes they can really put their personal touch on it, they tend to like it."
Including Mom and Dad's personality in nursery decor gives the room a comfortable and personal feel. It also creates a space they enjoy spending time in-and they will be spending a lot of time in it.
If you're expecting for the first time, you may be wondering how one tiny infant can require so much stuff! Between new furniture, stockpiles of essentials such as diapers and wipes, shower gifts of toys and clothes, not to mention the car seat, swing, bassinet, play yard& whew!, you may have noticed your home rapidly filling up with all of baby's things whether or not you've actually had the baby yet! As your child grows, and accumulates more stuff namely toys, which get bigger and bigger your living quarters may begin to feel a little cramped! So, what's a new mom to do?
Resolve to simplify your life this year by starting it off right -- with an organized nursery. Sure, things are bound to get a little messy (okay, very messy) once your little one arrives, but if you have items in place to help keep

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.

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.

Bratt Decor's beautiful chelsea lifetime in iron shines in this fantastic article honoring the richness and luster of metallics. "Whether you prefer the glitz of radiant gold or the history of burnished bronze, metallics give a rich luster to a room that few materials can emulate. What began as an accessory trend, with antique silver frames and gilded mirrors, can now be seen in wall coverings, fabrics and large-scale furniture and in colors that go beyond nature’s creations with luminescent purples, blues and greens."

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
It's surreal to be getting ready for twins--I can't believe it's actually happening.
Charlie is a baseball fanatic, so we decided to go with a subtle baseball theme for the nursery. We told our designer that we didn't want anything too over the top, and she struck the perfect balance between sporty and sophisticated. Simple touches like the adorable baseball lamps are fun but subtle.
Charlie was very involved in the planning; he cares about all the little details. He wanted to make sure that the carpet was nice and plush! And the twin glider rocking chairs and ottomans will be perfect for baseball watching with the boys!
It's hard to name my favorite part of the nursery, but I love the sleek cribs and changer from Bratt Decor's Blu Collection! They look like they will stand up to the destruction of two boys. And I am also super excited
