Bratt Decor's president and co-founder Mary Bauer dishes with anchors on CBS's morning talk show, The Morning Edition, about the latest trends in baby and nursery decor. And, oh, the accessories!

Dancing With the Stars co-host Samantha Harris, 33, welcomed daughter Josselyn Sydney back in September, but she and husband Michael Hess had not found out the sex prior to the delivery. Five weeks later, a peek into the recently completed nursery at the Hess househeld shows that the couple are definitely parents to a daughter!
Josselyn sleeps in a Bratt Decor Sleigh Crib in Buttermilk and has accompanying pieces, Chelsea Sliegh Cradle and a 7-drawer double dresser/changer. Her room is fit for a princess!
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."
Sweep your baby off to dreamland in this exquisite cradle. Your little one will feel like royalty as the soothing rocking motion of the Zanzibar cradle lulls even the fussiest of tots into a peaceful sleep.
The Buzz Girls Mommy Edition hosted a day at the spa for new mommies and mommies to be. The event was held on April 16th, at Recess Hand & Foot Spa in Los Angeles.

Bratt Decor was a proud and favorite participant of the 2009 Golden Globe Boom Boom Room. This invitation only event for celebrity parents and celeb parents-to-be had an amazing turnout of stars and their babes.
The Boom Boom Room was bustling with vendors of all types but Bratt Decor was the only children's furniture manufacturer present and trust us, the stars took notice! Expecting celebs like Anne Heche, Tim Allen, Charlie Sheen and Salli Richardson all admired Bratt Decor's high designs and said that they definitely wanted Bratt for their budding nurseries.
Other stars that already have Bratt Decor are Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Saarsgard, Marcia Cross, Tori Spelling, Sean Diddy Combs and Patrick Dempsey. Bratt Decor is already coveted by the stars and increasingly becoming the favored choice for Hollywood moms and their little ones.
People Magazine's photo spread of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's twins Max and Emme revealed their lush and luxurious nursery that included two Bratt Decor Casablanca Cribs in slate, Art 4 Kids' Madison Bedding and an ivory Max Daniel blanket. However, Parents Magazine is up in arms because they are concerned about what they say are major safety hazards in the room:
The pillows, stuffed animals and blankets in the cribs and draped canopies are suffocation hazards
Bows tied onto the crib slats are choking hazards.
The open window doesn't have a window guard.
While it's true that these concerns are valid, I think the editors of Parents are jumping the gun. As we learned with Brooke Burke's nursery for daughter Heaven Rain and Baby Boy Charvet, the room was styled and staged for a beautiful photo shoot. Most likely, all hazards would be removed before the babies are put in the cribs. Also,
Marcia Cross recalls options she considered when she was Desperate to get pregnant, including adoption and a sperm donor. Instead, she says in an upcoming Health article, she and hubby Tom Mahoney "decided to skip our honeymoon and try in vitro after the wedding" clearly a winning strategy, as their twin girls turn one on Feb. 20.... On the verge of popping out two mini booty-shakers of her own, Jennifer Lopez and hubby Marc Anthony are pimping out their awaited babies' nurseries at their various homes. Stylistic touches include 18-karat gilded trim, hand-embroidered bedding and French-inspired cribs by Bratt Crib. Total cost, according to Page Six? $120 Gs.... New mom Christina Aguilera is already in the gush phase, telling People that baby Max "completely changed my life." No word yet on what that entails; I can only hope it means a return to her dirrrrty days in dreads.
You might anticipate getting obsessed about decorating for a new baby's room, but you may not realize how important it is to also make your bedroom a haven for relaxation, romance... and conception. Join host Kim Hahn as she speaks with writer Blake Miller about decorating your bedroom for baby-making ... and stay tuned for guest Mary Bauer, owner of Bratt Decor on decorating for your baby-to-be.

Droolworthy: Bratt Decor's Chelsea Sleigh Crib
The Chelsea Baby Crib is a modern interpretation of the sleigh bed design. Gorgeous relief carvings and hand rubbed finish make this opulent crib the perfect choice for those seeking a more classic nursery.
With modern nurseries all the rage, we have neglected the beautiful, more traditional furniture for your little ones. Bratt Decor is one of my favorite children's designer furniture lines. Ryan and Trista Sutter mix and matched Bratt Decor pieces for son Max's Nursery. They selected the Casablanca Premiere crib in pewter, the accompanying day bed, a pewter Zanzibar rocking cradle, and the Chelsea changer/dresser in buttermilk.
I adore the Chelsea Collection in espresso. I think the rich brown adds a touch of sophistication and balance to the delicate pastels common for baby bedding. Other finishes include antique silver and buttermilk. The sleigh crib ($1320) and double dresser ($1738) adds stunning elegance to any nursery. The detailed carvings (left) and hand rubbed finishes are only the begining of Bratt Decor quality. The crib changes into a toddler bed with the conversion kit ($253). You can purchase a changing tray ($132) that

Kids Today's second annual retail innovators list recognizes retailers who are meeting the challenges of growing their businesses in an increasingly competitive marketplace by being creative, enterprising and steadfast. More and more of them are thinking outside the box and when it comes to engaging customers, either with free services and design assistance, websites or educational classes and gift registries. All of Kids Today's innovators are independents and many of them family owned. Some stores are newcomers to the industry with a year or two under their proverbial belts, while others have been in business for more than 60 years. But most importantly, to us, is the number if these innovative retailers who carry and sell Bratt Decor products as their key vendors.
