Geek Chic

I’m all for embracing my inner geek. In fact, the other day I totally Geeked out when I saw the new Star Trek trailer. Granted Chris Pine and Benedict Cumberbatch played a big role in that. Hey, a girl knows a chic geek when she sees one. No wonder this trend is spilling over into the interior design world. From Nintendo tables to scrabble pillows, “Geek Chic” is taking the design world by storm and I’m loving it. Now I can totally justify buying that life size cardboard cutout of William Shatner as Captain Kirk I saw at the thrift store a few weeks back. The beauty about this style is that you don’t have to add too much geek. Just a few well placed pieces here and there to incorporate the whimsy. My design style tends to have a whimsy side anyway so I’m a big fan of this trend. To tell you the truth, I think I’ve been rocking this style since 1985. I did after all own a Steve Urkel doll and several posters. But enough about me, what do you think? Is this trend here to stay or has it always been around?
