Home Decor for the Geek In You

I have a confession to make. My name is Lynsey and I am a big geek.I love all things Sherlock, LOTR, science and literature. In fact, reading is my cardio. And I just may have enjoyed school. Yup, I’m one those people. So it’s no surprise that I love nerdy home decor. Here are a few of my favorites:

For the Front Door

LOTR Home decor, LOTR door mat, Lord of the RingsHome Alone, Geek home decor

I’m thinking the second one would make a great door mat for Christmas, while the first one is perfect year round. If you don’t recognize the references, we can’t be friends anymore. Kidding. Not Kidding.

For the Kitchen

chemistry, flask container


Science will pretty much always hold a special place in my heart. I started out as a biology major in college and pre-med, which means I have a lot of science courses under my belt. Plus, who doesn’t need a prescription for caffeine early in the morning. I may not be a coffee drinker, but I do have the shot glass version. 😉

For the Office

Jane Austen, Bookworm home decor

dumbledore quotes, geek prints

seize the book, book lover

blog print

For Fun

This gets filed under fun because I’d spend hours walking by that light just so I could punch it. Pretty soon I’d be sporting a mustache and plumber’s crack.

hanging scrabble, scrabble game

Troy and I used to spend hours playing Wordfeud, so this hanging Scrabble game would be perfect for us! I can just imagine the epic games we would play.

What are some of your favorite geeky things? Would you put any of these in your home?

  • Ahhh!!!!!!!!!! I need that Mario light right meow! Also, I love the oil and vi bottles!!! Perfect!!! And that scrabble game would be the perfect present for my mom! She is scrabble obsessed. And keep the change ya filthy animal? Yes, please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You find the coolest stuff!

    • Thanks! It’s nice to know my geeky obsessions are good for something! 🙂 I swear I would be playing with that Mario light all day every day.

  • I don’t know the 1st rug, but do the second. And those coffee mugs are awesome, especially the Rx one! And LOL on that light, OMG, awesome. The scrabble as well!!! Great geek list!

    • Well, I guess our blogging friendship is saved because you at least knew the second rug. :-p Haha. The first one is a reference to Lord of the Rings.

  • I need that hanging scrabble game. IT’S A NEED!!!!

    I love those office signs, too. I’ve been wanting some new decor so thanks for sharing these!

    • Oh, I know! The need for hanging Scrabble is great. We should all have one in our homes or offices. Can you imagine playing with all your coworkers?! Office competition at its best!

  • OMG I need that seize the book!! I love the P&P print, of course, and that LOTR mat is the best!

  • Hanging Scrabble! Swoon.

    • Right?! I knew I had to have it when I saw it. I think I may add it to my Christmas list. 😉

  • AH! I love all of these so much!

  • I like the oil and vinegar bottles. Pre-med and biology is serious business!! I like the one that reminds you to live your life instead of focusing too much on dreams -that really applies to me.

    • Oh, yes. I think we all get so busy trying to achieve our dreams that we forget to live our lives. Sometimes we need to take the time to live in the moment. 🙂

  • Kari

    Those mugs and the prints. NEED them! For a Pride & Prejudice and coffee junkie like me, it’s gold 🙂

    • Haha. Then they’re perfect for you! I didn’t realize you were also a P&P fan. It’s always nice to find others who love it as much as I do.

  • The “Keep the change, you filthy animal” doormat NEEDS to be mine!!

    • You should add it to your Christmas list! It’s the perfect Christmas present! 🙂

  • That scrabble board is so cool!! I’m totally adding it to my Christmas gift list for my family!
    I recently saw a beaker as a flower vase and thought it was super cool. I’m not totally geeky, but I could get down with some cool science-y stuff in my house.

    • Science-y stuff look awesome as home decor! You don’t even have to be a geek to enjoy it. 🙂
