100 Days of Geek Chic and Healthy: The Bedroom

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014 | 2:37 pm

After seeing Ariel’s (Nerdy Birdie) 100 Days of Geek Chic and Healthy theme, I couldn’t help but be interested. Fitness and eating right have both been well established in my life (with a cheat day here and there, of course), but my inner-geek isn’t as strong as it once was. This challenge will hopefully step up my geek chic game with inspiration, and I hope to be able to inspire you with different workout and recipe ideas.

Currently being without a bedroom and getting ready to move into one, this week’s The Bedroom theme has gotten me to think exactly how to layout my living space. In the house I am preparing to move into, my room has previously been lived in by a 10 year old girl. What does that mean?

All pink walls.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind pink. However, having pink stare me in the face from every direction is too much. Even when I was 8 years old.

Before moving into the overdose of pink room, there will be a paint day. While I do enjoy reds, oranges as well as purples, having a room completely either of these colors sounds like an overload as well. Instead, there will be an accent wall or two with a red or purple and the other walls painted white.

Layout wise, I’ve got about 10×10 space to play with. I am moving from a larger location, so I’ve been going through my things and deciding what I need and what I can leave in storage.

And then, there’s what this whole challenge is about.

I am geek and I am proud
I am geek and I am proud.

People should walk into someone’s room and see what that someone is about.

I am GEEK and I am PROUD

Decorating wise, I have several Funko POP! figures to decorate with. These will either go on my bookshelves or on my desk. There is also the Harry Potter souvenirs I brought back from Universal that will find their home.


Including a few different wall-art posters, I have several running medals from races and marathons I would like to hang on my wall. Like the photo below, I would like to have a rod to place them on while having a few different running mementos above it. Sonic will more than likely find his way up there somehow.

Cosplay wise, I already have a drawer dedicated to my costume items. This shoe wall would also be great to place those out of place shoes as well as my numerous active shoes and dress shoes I never seem to wear.

What do you have in your room that signifies your interests? Do you keep your cosplay items out or do you have a storage system you place everything in?

      Ha, I didn’t even think about that, but now that you mention it.. It does look like there is a bit of a WM theme going on. Thanks!

    Yeah, I love pink but I don’t think I would enjoy an all-pink bedroom either. lol The layout you came up with looks awesome! I can’t wait to see it when you move in :)

    Since I’m married I keep my bedroom simple with just a poster of my favorite video game character :)
