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.


When selecting items made of wood - crib changing tables, nightstands - look for one's made by companies that get their materials from sustainable forests, and avoid those constructed of particleboard, plywood, and MDF. "They often contain chemicals, such

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.



From 1995 to 2000, 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

Charlie Sheen is very impressed with the nursery he and wife Brooke have set up for their twin boys, due in April.



"Forget being a babies' room. If I had a room like that growing up at any point, I would have been over the moon," Sheen, 43, told PEOPLE on Tuesday at Las Vegas's MAGIC convention, where he unveiled his new DaVinci Collection by Charlie Sheen clothing line.



The couple hope to put the finishing touches on the nursery this week.



"We have a deadline," said Sheen. "It's that last-minute push with the paint, furniture and all the accessorizing and all that, but it's going to be lovely."



Bratt Decor is proud to furnish the Sheen twin's baseball themed nursery!

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."

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.
