Dancing with the Stars co-host Samantha Harris gives us a glimpse inside her 1-month-old daughter Josselyn's nursery. With the help of the designer company, Nursery Couture, the luxe furniture compant Bratt Decor, and the infant bedding company, Caden Lane, Harris created a regal nursery fit for her little princess.



"I love pink and chocolate together. I think it's a more sophisticated and modern take on traditional baby colors," says Harris.


Already the baby's room is becoming her favorite in the home. She says, "I think it's modern with a vintage edge, and I couldn't be happier with it."


The walls were custom painted a pretty pink and a mural artist brought in to create a focus wall over the crib. The tree itself is accented with rhinestones spelling out mom and dad's initials inside a heart.


The crib is the Chelsea model from Bratt Decor in buttermilk. Available for $1,320.

The newness of an infant, the innocence and purity, usually conjures images of crisp white furnishings in the nursery. But there is something about bringing home the next generation of a family that naturally compels us to reflect on our heritage and ancestors. I find comfort in surrounding not only the infant but also the new parents with mementos of yesteryear. Vintage photos, antiques and family keepsakes calm the spirit with the promise of continuity and the soothing balm of familiarity.


I am finding a shift in nursery design is taking place, influenced partly by the large numbers of women waiting longer to have children. These mature, more established moms-to-be want the nursery to be sophisticated and flow seamlessly with the style of the rest of the home. Also, many of today's new moms are employed--spending more time away from home. They want to feel relaxed and at peace in

Creating your dream nursery can be an easy task when you focus your goals and wants for this special room. Many moms-to-be already have their dream nursery in mind, but are unsure of how to get started. Here is some helpful advice on how to overcome this obstacle. One of the best ways to decorate a child's room is around a baby nursery theme or color scheme.

Following are a few suggestions to get you started:

The best way to get an idea for your nursery theme is by selecting the baby bedding that best reflects your unique style. Choose a main print that will set the tone for the whole room. There are many options available today that go beyond the traditional babyish themes. Maybe pretty pink polka-dots or purple flowers for a little girls room, and blue gingham to dress up a little boys room. Be sure to

Mary, Bauer, co-owner of Bratt Decor, a high-end Baltimore nursery and children's furniture store, believes living and buying green will one day be something that comes naturally.


"I think it will just be a way of life. I don't think it's going to be remarkable anymore," shares Bauer, who is passionate about marrying high style with eco-friendly choices.


"That's always been our philosophy to do things as responsibly as possible," she says noting that in recent years "I think people in general want to be more responsible and want to do things in a greener way." She reports that about one in five clients specifically request organic products. thats compared to zero just a few years ago."


Client interest is driving Bratt Decor to take its organic offerings to the next level, expanding from bedding and onesies to an organic mattress line, expected to debut in early 2008. "There's some research

They say the gift of giving is the greatest gift of all. Whoever "they" are must not have a very long shopping list. We stress and fret and worry from Thanksgiving until Christmas morning about what to get for our loved ones, but not this year. We got smart and made a plan. Here, then, is our cheat sheet of what to get that someone special, or that someone whom we felt obligated to buy something for but had no idea what.



D Magazine suggests giving Bratt Decor's Zanzibar Rocking Cradle as the best gift for baby or expecting parents.



Finishing our Christmas List early that's the greatest gift of all.

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

Here's what we like: A shamelessly feminine nursery that manages to be posh and sophisticated as the same time--much like a certain little girl who lives at the Plaza Hotel. Modern, romantic and whimsical at the same time, this Eloise-inspired nursery reminds us of Dior's New Look. Sometimes it's OK to just enjoy being a girl.
