It's Bratt Decor and a girl for new parents Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard. Little Ramona was born on Oct 3, weighing in at 8 lbs and 6 oz. The new babe will be resting in a Bratt Decor classic, the Dick crib in white.

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.
When it comes to creating your first nursery, there are several must-have items every parent should consider, with a new crib topping
When Mary Bauer was pregnant with her first child in 1995, she did what most new parents do--searched for the right nursery furniture. But for Mary and her husband, Stephen, that search proved futile.
"The face of juvenile furniture was very different," Mary said. "We were trying to find sophisticated, well-designed baby furniture. But it was either very high-end European or Babies "R" Us. There was nothing in between."
After finding nothing that suited their tastes, Stephen, who at the time was working as a commercial illustrator but has a background in furniture making in his native South Africa, designed a crib from scratch--a four-poster iron crib with ostrich feathers. The couple realized there were likely others parents out there that wanted the same level of sophistication and elegance for their nurseries, so the couple formed Bratt Decor. "We incorporated while I was still pregnant," Mary said.

Window treatments in the same fabric as the bedding with delicate lilac pom poms to add a feminine flair. The dick crib in white is made up with

Bratt Decor, the baby furnishings line favored by Sarah Jessica Parker, Courtney Cox, and Angelina Jolie, has opened its latest boutique at Tysons Corner. Bratt Decor uses unique finishes, detailed textures, bold colors, and high-quality materials to create nurseries that are extensions of the home, rather than separate entities. The new store features Bratt Decor's gorgeous line of infant and youth furnishings and an array of gift and decor items.
Decorating a nursery can be a daunting task, even more so if your expecting your first child, but trying to save the planet while you're at it could very well make an expectant mom's head spin. Fortunately, eco-friendly options are becoming increasingly available, and although they are yet to be considered mainstream, there are still many adorable-chic-options from which to choose. "Five years ago, eco-friendly options for the nursery were virtually non-existent," says Brian Green, general manager at Great Beginnings. "Today, however, these items are much more popular." Knowing what to look for before you go to the store will help you make wiser decisions, especially if you plan to go green.

Her first born is due to make his arrival in mid-March, but the mommy-to-be is well prepared having received all of her Bratt Decor furnishings the last week of September, and from what we've been told the nursery is beautiful!
Farr began looking for nursery furniture before there was a baby. Farr says that through her search she found nothing that came close to the beauty and peace of Bratt Decor.
Farr mixed and matched pieces from the hippest collection in baby, Bratt Decor. Like the true maverick she is she chose a burnished gold Venetian crib, accompanied with a Chelsea changer in espresso, and two accessory shelves from the Dick line, which she painted herself to match the espresso finish of the Chelsea.
We are proud to welcome Ms. Farr into the Bratt Decor family
