My fascination with nesting dolls started when I was a kid, after my brother spent a month in Russia and brought home a small suitcase-worth of intricately painted sets. They instantly became cherished items and I've had a soft spot for matryoshka dolls of all types ever since.
These hand-painted nesting dolls from Australian designer Melissa Gardner offer a unique, modern twist that I simply adore! From the super minimal white and wood Kiska Doll to the playful, mermaid-inspired Mjla set, I love each and every one. (Another fave? The gold and turquoise Jelena Doll, which happens to be the name of an old friend of mine. Yay!) Check out more of Melissa's hand-crafted nesting dolls in her online shop Nushka!
Psst: Love a good nesting doll, too? You won't want to miss these colorful, geometric dolls either!
