I’ve always been a big fan of iron cribs. There’s something regal and timeless about them. Years ago, you could only own an iron crib if you wanted to spend thousands of dollars on one, but luckily, thanks to some talented designers and retailers, there are tons of options—in style and price! I used Bratt Decor’s Venetian Crib in my first daugter’s nursery. I loved how the four posts could be used with or without the cross bar, and if I didn’t want the height at all, I could remove the posts as well. Options are always good.
I loved how the Venetian Crib didn’t look as feminine as some of the other iron options, and with its slate, pewter and gold color choices, it would work in any nursery! Here’s a few of my other favorite options out there. Bratt Decor’s J’Adore Crib-Cradle actually converts from a cradle to a crib! How cute would it be to use as a cradle to hold stuffed animals, toys, etc. in the big kid room later? Restoration Hardware’s Augusta Iron Canopy Crib has an upholstered headboard and footboard (perfect for a baby boy).
