My nerdy office

I have a few weaknesses. One is Star Wars, and one is art. When those two are combined I end up with more art than I have wall space for! Over the past year I've been slowly finding the perfect places in my house for my Star Wars toys and art. It seemed like a natural solution to transform my spare room into an office covered in Star Wars. Actually, I'm amazed my whole house isn't covered in Star Wars. I have toys and items everywhere but not nearly to the point of concentration in my office.
I patiently waited (I don't often use those words in the same sentence) for a local picture frame chain to have their amazing buy one frame, get one for a penny sale - yes, it is awesome - and I stocked up. Before the sale I went through all my carefully stored, unframed art and measured everything and made a spreadsheet listing the sizes and ranking them in order of priority. It's what I do. I spent a solid afternoon framing and hanging the art.


Once it was all up, I just had to add finishing touches. A Star Wars clock from my sister, some Clone Trooper curtains I found on sale at Amazon, and an R2-D2 rug from Pottery Barn that I couldn't resist. I added some of my bigger Star Wars toys to the bookshelves and a Star Wars flag thing I got in Little Toyko, and tada! I think it's nice and geeky but also not overdone? Not that I mind overdone and I might get to that point, but I'm happy with this more subtle (sort of) look. 


Please share your nerd decor photos with me!

  1. I like the curtains and the rug. Is that a picture of Wookie the Chew in the third picture?

  3. I love that you have three of Robin's (@thegorgonist) pieces. She is one of my favorites! Here are some shots of my workspace (Jason Palmer takes up most of my wall space)

  8. The Force is strong in your office! You should see my cousin's C-3PO rug. I bet it'll go well with your R2-D2 rug. He's one Star Wars collector too. It's okay to have a nice and geeky office, but it all boils down to the owner. As a matter of fact, my aunt has an office with a Barbie collage on the door. LOL, seriously!
