Decor for the Geeky at Heart


Sherlock Gnomes is a cute little shop run by a lady with a love for all things 'geeky'. At this time she has assorted prints of throw pillows in a few different sizes and styles.

When I first looked through the selection offered, I was completely enamored with the artists' custom handpainted light switch plates. From recreations of the famous Van Gogh's Starry Night, to a classic Spiderman web, there was something for people of all ages. Plus if you have a special request, she can more than likely put it on a switch plate (perhaps a TARDIS for any of you Whovians?).


I was sent 2 16x16 Classic Star Trek print pillows, with my choice of coloured fleece on the reverse side for an added bit of comfort. As well as, a surprise Star Trek felt ornament. I chose the black fleece for my pillows.

The pillows came freshly laundered, and individually packaged in durable plastic. Each had a signature Sherlock Gnomes tag sewn on, but was inconspicuous and not irritating in the least bit. I found that they were extremely comfortable to rest my head on. I also liked that for a less busy look sometimes I could flip them over to be just plain black with a hint of the Star Trek fabric. Both materials felt like they were of good quality. The Star Trek side was a bit stiffer, similar to a pillowcase feel, and the other was much softer. It was nice to have the option, depending on what mood you happen to be in.

Whether you have a little (or a lot) of geek in you or if someone you know does, head over and check out what's currently available. You can stay up to date with new designs, prints and future promotions by connecting on Etsy, and Facebook.
