Lincoln’s Gray and Blue Minimal Geeky Nursery


We created a geeky nursery inspired by our favorite things for our baby boy. A gray, blue and white cozy space that fits our home and personal style perfectly with minimal decor with a touch of geek love.

Design Inspiration

It was crucial we incorporate things that have a special meaning to us which will be the same things we will be sharing with him as he grows. You’ll spot subtle touches of Harry Potter, Doctor Who and Star Wars in his room. One of the husbands favorite series is Jurassic Park and what boy doesn’t like dinosaurs? To incorporate one of his favorite movies we decided to make a DIY nursery dinosaur mobile. We collectively agree it’s the best piece in the entire nursery.

Decorating Style

The colors we wanted to stick with were blue (mostly navy blue), gray and white. These colors and mixture of patterns fit the rest of the house and our style perfectly. We wanted simple, stylish, minimal and touches of our favorite things.
