The green-hued Buddha, placed adjacent to the couch, also creates an unexpected but lovely decorative addition.

StudioHue designed this contemporary nursery to grow with the child, but for now a sitting area with a comfortable midcentury modern chair and ottoman have been placed in the room for parent and baby's needs.

Who says every little girl needs to be in the pink?
