As makers of the most gorgeous iron cribs, Bratt Decor gets this question all the time. The short answer is, just as with wooden cribs, it depends. If you are buying a brand new crib, by law, all cribs must adhere to the most current safety standards as set forth by the U. S. Consumer Safety Commission. There is absolutely no difference as far as safety is concerned, between a brand new wood crib or a brand new iron crib. Older model and used cribs, regardless of their construction materials, may no longer meet safety standards, and may have been compromised in their integrity with usage and storage. We always recommend, if no where else, buy new when it comes to your crib. After all, this is the place where your baby will spend the most amount of time without your eyes on them.

Safely and securely adding a mirror to the nursery can make the room look larger, brighter, and more sophisticated. Also, babies just love to look at themselves. Here’s what you need to know to add a beautiful mirror to your baby’s room.
Securely fasten the mirror to the wall. This is the most important detail when adding mirrors, artwork or any decor that could fall. A cable wire hung across a single hook or nail is completely out of the question. Thread wire through D hooks on the back of the mirror and tie it off. Note, each D hook will need its own hook in the wall. Always hang your mirror on a stud. Make sure you are using hangers that are rated to handle the weight of your mirror. When mirror is in position, Run your wire through the hangers and secure.

After gathering ideas from baby magazines, Alexa told Mary that she wanted the room to be glam and girly. "The one thing I really did not want was for it to look like my closet," Alexa told Style.

She wanted the room to be cozy and beautiful while still allowing McKayla to have her own identity. Shunning the bright white that's often typical in

What inspired you to design cribs?
The inspiration was the creation of our first nursery. Stephen is a trained artist and furniture designer, and when we couldn't find any furnishings that spoke to our tastes, he designed one for our baby. We worked together and put things into that crib that spoke to each of us personally. For me, it was the medium of French wrought iron, which I love. For him, it was the ostrich plumes from his beloved home of South Africa. The blending was sublime, and unlike anything that had ever existed.
How has your company grown over the years?
Our company has grown and morphed with our growing family, and the changing needs and tastes of our clients. Design is a fluid movement.
What advice would you give to someone pursuing their dreams?
I would say, absolutely, go for it! If you've been awakened, deep within your spirit,

In an effort to increase sales and compete in a quickly changing marketplace, Bratt Decor has slashed prices on all of their iron collection and are working to expand their Mainstreet Collection which debuted at last year's JPMA.
"We believe the lowering of our wholesale prices on our iron line will allow our specialty shops to be more competitive in the marketplace. We've test marketed the results and it's been amazing! Our iron line has been extremely well received since our incorporation 6 years ago and lowering prices will only make it more popular. Until now, it was almost impossible to buy an iron crib for less than $1200; now our most popular model, Casablanca Premiere, will retail for $900," says President Mary Bauer.

Our client is a true cowgirl at heart, and wanted to pass on her love of all things western to her new baby. We wanted to create a chic nursery that was western in style, but still elegant and not overly thematic. We started by taking a rustic color scheme as our inspiration, using earthy tones and deep reds as our palette. We brought in a lot of wood tones and textures, and made sure the main furniture pieces were elegant and versatile. Our client had a very special vintage saddle stand, which we turned into an ottoman for the glider, adding sentimentality to the space. The textiles are a mix of luxurious silks and rustic suedes. The nursery was completed with a pop of cow print and a fabulous hide rug to pull the whole space together.

This room is total Hollywood glam, featuring the stunning Chelesa Lifetime crib in iron, 7 drawer dresser with change top, and spacious armoire. This room is designed to last, as the crib converts to a beautiful full size bed. <><>
