Nerdy Pillow Round-Up

Rick and I got a new sofa a few months ago, and goodness, were we due. Don’t believe me?

Sofa comparison

Quite the upgrade, eh? We deliberately went for a soft charcoal grey that would pretty much go with anything since are planning on moving soon and didn’t want to tie ourselves to one colour scheme. But that also means that it’s a bit staid, so I’ve been scanning the interwebs for nerdy throw pillows that I could use to brighten things up a bit. I was especially happy to discover that most prints on Society6 are now available as pillow covers (with or without inserts). Then there is good ol’ Etsy, with a tons of embroidered and hand-stitched options.

I rounded up a few of my favourites below:
Nerdy Throw Pillow Spread 1. Sherlock Pillow (John Watson also available) by Heart Felt Designs | 2. Paragade (Mass Effect) Pillow by 8-Bit Lane | 3. Nerdy-Flirty Floppy Disk by My Mimi | 4. Tonari no Totoro by Victor Vercesi | 5. Same Bat Time by Vee Ladwa

Did I leave out one of your favourite nerdy pillows? Add a link to it in the comments so we can check it out.

      I’m pretty sure that one will be mine soon, unless I find something better in Japan.

    Um… so this is going to sound weird, but I totally think that pink pillow looks like me. Hahaha You did a great job with the couch.
