Dancing with the Stars co-host Samantha Harris recently opened up her pink and chocolate nursery to Life & Style magazine. "I think it's modern with a vintage edge and I couldn't be happier with it," she says. Harris welcomed her first child, daughter Josselyn Sydney, last month.


Harris chose the Chelsea sleigh crib in buttermilk by Bratt Decor for $1320. The Caden Lane Taylor collection ($450) bedding coordinated nicely with the custom-painted pink walls.


The girly nursery had accents of pink and chocolate heart frames.


Check out the pictures of little Josselyn's nursery in the current issue of Life & Style Weekly.

Think of a kid's room with a sea motif and you imagine the obvious: cute fish and billowing seaweed painted on the walls, a poster print or two of sailboats, a "Finding Nemo" bedspread.


But when it came to his own bedroom, 4-year-old Caden Ridenour got something out of the ordinary.


Because he's the fourth and youngest child in his family, his mom, Christa Ridenour, felt he deserved something special.
"He always got lots of leftovers and hand-me-downs," Ridenour reasoned.


She and her husband, Cary, decided to convert the office of their four-bedroom Foothills home into a fifth bedroom for Caden. Then, in search of some ideas, Christa paid a visit to one of her favorite Tucson stores.


Susan Luedtke, owner of The Stork's Nest of the Old Pueblo, a children's boutique, showed Ridenour some fish-themed bedding that seemed to capture Caden's personality.


"They're not your typical fish," Ridenour says of the design, which

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.

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

New parents spend between $5,000 and $15,000 to decorate Baby's nursery, according to the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association, driving a $7.3 billion industry. That's a lot of money to spend on a room Junior can't enjoy until he's crawling.


Parents spend a lot of time in their new baby's room, which is why some parents consider their own decorating likes and dislikes when creating a nursery.


Sarah Horn, owner of SHA, said parents are looking for custom pieces to put in nurseries. "People are liking to create their own now, versus buying something off the shelf," she said. "Once somebody realizes they can really put their personal touch on it, they tend to like it."


Including Mom and Dad's personality in nursery decor gives the room a comfortable and personal feel. It also creates a space they enjoy spending time in-and they will be spending a lot of time in it.

What does it take to put together a fantastic nursery? It turns out you don't need a huge budget, interior designer pals or even a perfect space--just a little creativity and sense of what will work for your family. In fact, the whole process was a lot easier than P&N's very pregnant AMY BRAYFIELD expected it to be--which is a good thing, since she waited till pretty much the last possible minute to prep her own nursery.


Things to consider.....


Think furniture


You're going to need a crib and a storage center, but beyond that, think about what you and your baby will really need. Some moms can forego, say, a changing table completely, while other moms swear their changing table was an essential they couldn't live without.


When it comes to furniture, the key is to think about how you'll really use it. If it's important to you to be able to move

New In Town. Bratt Decor, the on-line, high-end infant and toddler furniture and accessory store favored by stars (Heidi Klum, Tori Spelling and Courtney Cox are customers), recently opened its first retil store in our area (another is in Baltimore). At the nearby location, near Tysons, the style is high. Find the basics: animal-shaped soaps, books, bedding, birth announcements and night lights (from $4.50 to $230), and the not-so-basics: Venetian iron cribs ($875), leather kiddie club chairs in pink and red ($180), tricked-out trikes ($249) and a vintage, pram-inspired doll carriage ($700). Our favorite fantasy find: the stunning Silver Cross pram with an equally stunning price tag ($4,000).

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

What makes Bratt Decor unique simple and classic style paired with quality craftsmanship.


The functionality of the line as well as it's ability to be gender neutral is amazing. For example, my daughter Henley has the Heritage Crib in white with the bunny finials. If my next child is a boy, I just trade out the bunnies for airplane finials and it is now for a boy.


Most convertible cribs will convert to toddler beds, but let's face it they really are not very attractive. With the conversion rails (sold separately) The Bratt Decor wooden cribs convert to the sweetest little toddler beds. Also, another genius design element is that many of the dressers actually have a changing table that attaches to the top and can be removed later. We have the Jane Crib and Dresser Changer in my other daughters room (yes they're twins) , with the crib converting to a

Because of the recent lead paint issues within the children's toy industry, I feel it prudent to reassure all of our clients that all Bratt Decor's finishes have been tested by an independent internationally respected testing laboratory, and all comply to both U.S. and European standards for lead content.



In other words all of Bratt's products are manufactured free of icky stuff like formaldehyde, lead and toxic dyes.



Our most recent testing is dated August 17, 2007. The conclusion of these tests was that the finishes complied with the United Sates Standard ASTM F963-07 and the European Standard EN71 Part 3: 1994 (including amendment A1: 2000). These test procedures specifically test for lead content and other "heavy" metals.



Please, rest assured, we are ever diligent in our responsibilities to the safety of our clients. We are parents first, and the safety of every child is always at the forefront of our minds.

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.


Check out Bratt Decor's ultra feminie furnishings (Jane crib and changer/dresser) featured throughout this Eloise-inspired nursery! We like this look too!
