Designer Elena Del Bucchia shows us how to design a nursery with a style that grows up along with the baby.
Though there’s certainly plenty of whimsy to be found in this Calgary nursery (case in point: the adorable balloon-shaped overhead light from Brokis), the space is slyly sophisticated. As she designed the room for her new daughter, Elena Del Bucchia chose features—like the Campbell Dunsmore wallpaper and the Ikea rug—that are stimulating but not explicitly babyish; as the Dwell Studio crib is retired and the toys on the Ikea shelving units make way for books, those graphic patterns will still be totally appropriate. “I wanted to be wise about and reuse everything,” says Del Bucchia. “She’ll grow into the room and mix them in.”
