My husband and I had a great time designing this nerdy nursery for our soon-to-arrive little girl. With Star Wars, Doctor Who, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Trek, Ghostbusters, Firefly, Harry Potter, Wonder Woman, Robot, Dragon, Marvel, Monster, Dog, Lego, and Dinosaur details, we infused this room with as much of ourselves as we possibly could, while keeping it modern and classic.
We are so in love with this space and hopefully it will be a room that can grow with our little girl.
Our inspiration came from a series of Doctor Who Art Prints. They were one of the first things we purchased for the room and knew we wanted them above the crib. The design grew from there.
Our design style is modern, but still classic. We wanted the style of the room to grow with our kiddo.

- My husband, Thomas, made the incredible Lego Star Wars mobile using ships and planets from the Lego Star Wars Planets Series. It is constructed using fishing line and part of a painted embroidery loom.
Our favourite items are the DIY Lego Star Wars mobile that Thomas made as well as the custom art pieces by Andrea.
As well as the book shelves with some of our favourite books on them!
We started doing our nursery REALLY early on in my pregnancy and it was great because at 4-5 months pregnant, I could still manoeuvre enough to help with the painting and building IKEA furniture.
We also used Pinterest to gather ideas in one board to see how they would "look" together.
