The hubby is a serious geek. And I have to own up to a little geekiness myself. After all, we did meet in a computer lab. 15 years later, our geeklings have been raised on a steady stream of Star Wars, Doctor Who, and Harry Potter.
They've been blogged about, quoted on Twitter, and each had an email address within hours of birth. The tween plays Risk and loves video games you've never heard of. The teen has TARDIS earrings. The youngest loves Jar-Jar like there's no tomorrow. (Sorry. We tried.)
We have geeky towels, sheets, clothes, and kitchen utensils. I even have two light sabers in the living room. That's right - two! So, it's been super fun to discover that geeks are coming out of the closet. We're somehow cool again, and there is no shortage of home decor to claim our status a Geek Family.

Check out these 12 geek-inspired items for your home decor:
1. Arcade Light Switch
I have fond memories of playing arcade games for hours on end in high school. This would be super fun to have in a game room or home office.

2. Boba Fett Tiffany Lamp
Whoa. This seriously blows my mind. It's completely awesome, and I would totally display one in my living room. Sadly, it is a handcrafted design and not for sale. Who wants to learn the art of stained glass for me?

3. Nintendo Controller Coffee Table
This coffee table is a working Nintendo controller. How freaking cool is that?! Oh, just me? I'll own that geek. It's all mine. Too bad the $3,500 price tag will keep me from owning one of these.

8. TARDIS Media Center
This TARDIS may not be bigger on the inside, but you won't need a Sonic Screwdriver to put it together either. My little Whovians would flip over one of these in their room. Geeks are so creative!

10. Pac Man Tile Art
This Pac Man wall design is made with Ixxi - a modular hanging system with cards used to create a variety of fun looks. I imagine you could do the same thing with regular tiles, too.

11. Star Trek Door Chime
Sound the alarm! Or, at least let the Enterprise notify you when someone arrives. I kinda love that it makes the Enterprise door swoosh when you come in.

12. Math Clock
I get a little tired of hearing, "What time is it?" when there's a clock right there on the wall. With this clock full of mathematical equations, I might forgive it a little...
