Life changes when a baby comes along—and that means your space needs to change, too. One Vancouver couple took the challenge of their impending parenthood to designer Jamie Deck, principal of Shift Interiors, who created a living room that will easily modify as the little one grows (or as tastes change).
A monochromatic colour palette creates a “soft, spa-like setting,” says Deck (a bonus for new parents who also work busy jobs), but it’s easy to update the look with on-trend hues by switching up artwork or throw pillows.
Custom millwork behind the cozy grey Nathan Anthony sofa showcases a rotating roster of personal treasures against a dark grey feature wall, and hidden below the shelving is a built-in buffet with 20-inch-deep cabinets, perfectly suited for storing seasonal items and vases best displayed when baby is a little older.
