The nursery is the most multifunctional room. They sleep, play, study, create and dream in it. We tell you how to make it beautiful and practical.

A nursery in an apartment designed by Jaime Berjestein for a couple engaged in the fashion industry and their little daughter.

For a baby

Stockholm fashion designer Natalia Aliyeva and her husband photographer Markus Olsson designed this room for their newborn daughter. The character of the nursery was determined by bright drawings and posters. The tumbler was bought in Vietnam.

  • Hinged shelf, wood, “Russian design house”.
