An Interior Designer Reveals the Secret to Turning Any Room Into a Pinterest-Worthy Dream Nursery
When it came time to decorate the nursery for my second son, I had a major design challenge: I needed to convert the formal dining room in my cozy San Francisco apartment into a multi-functional room, providing a place to sleep for my youngest as well as space to play for both him and his toddler-aged brother.
Unsure of how to tackle the project, I sought expert help from Decorist, an online interior design company that helps you decorate your space virtually for a flat fee.

And it packages all this in enchanting style, beautiful beyond my wildest expectations. It's a room that captivates children and adults alike.
