Bratt Decor's Blu Changer

When you can extend the life of a product past the nursery, it makes for practical shopping. The sophisticated changer doubles as a dresser after your little one graduates from diapers (simply remove the changing table tray).

Two of Bratt Decor's adorably feminine pieces are used to detail this baby space feature- the Jane Crib in white and the Jane Dresser/Changer in white with pink stripped accent drawer fronts.



With feminine accents in pink and green to compliment the clean black and white of the gorgeously detailed bedding, P&N's editor whisks your little doll away to the exotic orient without ever having to leave the comfort of her own crib.

In 1995, Mary and Stephen Bauer were expecting their first child. Stephen had his own business as a commercial illustrator and was enjoying great success. Mary was a marketing director for a local architectural firm. They both were excited about their new addition. Stephen showed his excitement by designing a gorgeous wrought iron crib for their new baby.



With that crib, Bratt Decor was born. Since then, the Bauer family has grown, as has the business. Bratt Decor designs include baby cribs, dressers, changing tables, childrens furniture and coordinating accessories. Stephen works full-time designing, creating and manufacturing products while Mary manages sales and marketing. Sebastian and Raiff, their sons, do product testing and design input.



M&T Bank won this banking relationship in January of 2006. Bratt Decor has seen significant expansion since then. Michael Pietropaoli, assistant vice president and relationship manager, and Carl Hairston, vice president and team leader, both of

Best Iron Crib


Name: Bratt Decor Venetian 3-in-1

September 9, 2008
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

She's due any day now with twin girls, but Numb3rs actress Diane Farr has it all under control. "When I found out it was twins, I said a lot of expletives," the actress told Life & Style during a July 3 visit to the girls' new nursery in Diane's West Hollywood home. The nursery features a Bratt Decor Venetian Crib in gold (the same one she has for son Beckett) and a Chelsea Double Dresser in Espresso.



Farr loved the crib so much that she "couldn't imagine getting anything different" she says.



The twins' ballerina themed nursery follows Diane's decorating rule of thumb: "You should splurge on a really high-end piece," she says "then one medium piece and a bunch of things to fill it in."

August 2008
Joking that pregnancy is "the one time in your life when you can gain 50 pounds and people congratulate you," actress Diane Farr admits that when an ultrasound revealed twins, "I said a lot of expletives."



Then I realized it was all about organization. Now Im pretty much prepared. If you open up any drawer in the room, theyre filled for until the girls are 2!



Describing how she chose to decorate the girls' nursery, Diane, 38, explains her rules: "You should splurge on a really high-end piece, then one medium piece, and a bunch of things to fill in. For her more expensive items, Diane picked out Posh Tots chandelier and lamps; for her mid-range items, Serena and Lily sheet sets. For furniture, she turned to Bratt Decor for their Venetian Crib in gold (Diane already had one she used with Beckett, so she added another to her nursery) and the

Pacticality, simplicity and eco-friendly furniture and accessories are todays watchwords when talking about parents furnishing their childrens nurseries, bedrooms and play-rooms. When it comes to play areas, organization iskey, says Angel Fischer, an interior designer with Kirk Designs. Things have to be functional as wellas fun. Its not just about looking cute.


Most of our clients are concerned with how to manage the chaos, and they are looking for things that are durable, can be cleaned easily and are not tremendously expensive. And no one is doing themed rooms.


While most adults groan at the thought of shag carpeting anywhere, Fischer points out that it can be very forgiving when it comes to spills and can hide alot of flaws. She also recommends Pottery Barn as a great place to shop: The furniture can take a decent beating from children and not be utterly destroyed.

In 2007, crib sales in the United States hit an estimated $1 billion and expected to grow to $1.26 billion by 2012, according to research from Easy Analytic Software Inc. Given those numbers, the future looks steady for those who manufacture cribs as well as nursery case goods, glider rockers and crib mattresses. Even in an economic downturn, many expecting parents still need to visit stores or Web sites to outfit their nursery.


Kid's Today takes a look at this industry and talks with manufacturers to get their take on sales and production in hard times.
