Madonna, Cindy Crawford, and Heather Locklear are just a few of the celebrity moms with kids we love to watch. You can be sure these moms want the finest in room decor for their babies and children. This desire has probably helped fuel a race to bring luxurious kids furniture and accessories to market.

We're not sure how many new parents will actually pop for the $28,000 castle bed featured in the 2000 issue of the Neiman Marcus Catalog.

But they might opt for some of the more affordable, though still plush items for babies and children that are currently available. Just what are the trends in opulence for kids? Currently in fashion is the Italian villa look using warm color-washed walls in golden yellows and furnished with trendy wrought iron furniture (such as the baby changing table from Bratt Decor pictured at right).

Another trend is hot colors. One recent Designer Showhouse

On July 27, 2007 the ex-Bachelorette Trista Sutter and her firefighter husband welcomed their first child, Maxwell Alston Sutter, into the world. But their two years of TTC were not completely smooth. Trista joined host Kim Hahn to candidly discuss her conception story, which includes nearly 100 pregnancy tests, a crucial time-saving tool for Trista, and the concession that just maybe it was time to consult a fertility expert . . . all culminating in what Trista says "was the happiest cry I've ever cried in my life.


Here's what Trista had to say about little Max's nursery!


"Its our favorite room in the house now! The furniture is beautiful, we got a wrought iron crib and daybed from Bratt Decor, and a beautiful buttermilk colored changing table."


"We also have their bassinet in our room, and that I'm just in love with! It matches alot of the furniture that

The customer was clearly in a dilemma when she walked through the shop's door.



What can one possibly purchase as a baby shower gift when the sex of the tiny newcomer is still unknown?



Debbie Melnikoff was quick with her answer.



The owner of Dream Baby Boutique on the Loudoun Street Pedestrian Mall in Winchester propelled her customer toward a wall covered with Loved Baby apparel -- a neutral-colored, mix-and-match clothing line for infants, whether they're made of either snips and snails, or sugar and spice.



Customers "love the 'Loved Baby' butt on the pants," Melnikoff said with a laugh, indicating miniature pairs of rompers with the logos emblazoned on the seats.



Another display features a menagerie of stuffed animals with fuzzy faces and in a variety of species, including ducks, giraffes, bears, frogs and, the most popular item, according to Melnikoff, an impish monkey. They are also available as teethers and are washable,

Now that finding the perfect baby products has reached the same status as purchasing a car, expectant moms need to do their homework. What materials would you like to surround your baby with? Are you all about convenience and classic style? Do you cringe at the thought of a traditional crib? Fortunately, no matter what your personal standards, tastes, or budget, there's a crib out there for your growing family.


Some things to consider as you surf the net or shop till you drop:


- If you're vertically challenged, a drop-side crib could save your aching back. Some fixed-rail cribs are designed with a lower profile to help with heaving lifting.


- These days, most cribs convert to toddler beds and some even become full-sized twin beds. These conversions could add to the bottom line, so ask about additional costs.


- Under-crib storage is a great add-on if you don't have a

One of the greenest things you can do is buy less stuff. Of course, that's easier said then done when the Incredible Growing Kid gets too big not only for his britches, but also for his bed. So instead of cribs, play tables, and storage that need to be replaced, we're featuring pieces that grow with your child--as well as design tips for repurposing old stuff and tricks for decorating to accommodate evolving interests. Whether you're setting up a nursery or a pretween's room, this approach is easy on the earth--and, in happy coincidence, on your wallet too.

Take a peek inside "Numb3rs" star, Diane Farr's eclectic home. Great photo of the nursery.



LOS ANGELES--It's a warm spring morning when Diane Farr, 36, swings open the front door to her cozy 1920s Spanish-style bungalow. The actress is enjoying a rare day off from taping the hit CBS series Numb3rs and caring for her 5-week-old son, Beckett.


"It's pretty exhausting," she says, walking by a floor-to-ceiling arched window in the sunlit foyer of the three-bedroom, two-bath home. "I keep feeling like the adrenaline is going to run out at some point."


Luckily, Farr and her husband, Seung Chung, 36, a marketing executive, have had plenty of help with midnight feedings. "My family just came and left, and his parents came and left," she says with a hint of panic--the couple has yet to hire a nanny. "Now my mom is back because we're shooting the season finale for Numb3rs. (It airs

If you're awaiting a visit from the fabled stork, join the club. There are more than 73 million moms or moms-to-be in the US today, ranging in age from teen years to 40-plus. While each and every one of them is going to need at least one crib, a changing table, and a rocking chair, the demand for baby goods doesn't stop there.


Grandparents also play a major role in spending and "are expected by 2010 to be 80 million strong and spending $35 billion per year on their grandchildren," says Lauren Estep, spokesperson for Young America, a furniture manufacturer based in Stanleytown, VA. The baby business is booming, and with it comes an endless array of options aimed at creating a child's room that is safe, functional, and fun.

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.


Consumers are also looking for eco-friendly products. This

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.

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

Desperate Housewives star and proud new mom Marcia Cross welcomed two beautiful fraternal twin babies into the world on February 20th. Eden and Savannah will be coming home to an adorable nursery completely furnished by Bratt Decor.



The girls nursery is decorated in classic New England Style with clean, straightforward lines, and crisp white Bratt Decor furnishings. The walls are painted a sweet lavender to bring a touch of feminine color, and playful charm to the room.
Marcia, like the Boston girl she is, chose a clean New England cottage look for her nursery, says Bratt Decor President Mary Bauer, who visited with Marcia in early January to do an interior design consultation.



Marcia and Tom Mahoney chose two of Bratt Decor's classic Dick cribs, two Dick changing tables, a classic armoire with custom painting, a Dick nightstand, a classic mirror, an adorable pink Jane scalloped table and chairs set,
