Superhero Office

I am a big fan of embracing the things you love, and displaying them prominently. That is certainly the case for Hubby's office. As an IT guy, he has a lot of visual clutter in the form of electronics, and so his office falls a little on the bland side. For anyone who knows my Hubby, you know that he is anything but bland.

So, with that in mind, I took some of his fun comic book posters and framed them. After this weekend's Ottawa Comicon (at which we both had a great time) I thought this a timely post.

As you can see, the office practically runs as a server room.

Since that side of the room has the most visual clutter, I focused on only one piece of artwork - a fun Batman print that his Mom just sent him from Vegas.

Hubby likes to be organized, so his desk drawers are all labelled for ease of location.

Also, Hubby is quite brilliant. When I bought him this Nexus 7 tablet for his birthday last November, he immediately found this DVD/Game case that perfectly serves as his holder - A fact I had completely forgotten about until I went to photograph his office.

For more smart re-uses of discarded objects, see Hydrangea Girl's blog.

I don't know if you are noticing a theme here or not.... He may or may not like Batman. I will let you decide. Also, it may come up again in a future post and at an unexpected location...

A bit of an awkward photo to take... also, 'awkward' is an awkward word to write... don't ya think?

I just like intersections - hence this close-up. Note the poppy - one thing Hubby always has - as a tribute to his Grandfather.

Finally, a view from the upstairs hall... bye bye office. I will come and see you in another 6 months. Perhaps after I finally find a head to display that batman mask we have...


  1. Nice!!

    The way you staged it makes it look like I'm not a total pig!

    Thanks sweetheart.

    1. You know all I did was remove that tray of papers behind the Nexus... silly man.

  2. Oh. MAN. What an awesome home office. Dare I say, bat cave? As a fellow comic book nerd, I fully appreciate the awesome of this room. One of the first things I noticed - I thoroughly enjoy how XBOX has been placed in office and not in the living room. I can't wait to own a home so I don't have to hear husband playing Oblivion and screaming profanities at the top of his voice in the living room. I mustn't forget - such a clever husband you have using the XBOX case to hold his tablet. And I fully appreciate the drawer labels as well as the sweet, sweet picture frame negative space. I'm such a detail junkie.

    p.s. Thank you for the shout out! I was so excited to see my little name. Also, my husband is also in IT!!! He recently invested in a Raspberry Pi ... If that makes any sense to husband? I don't know what the hell it is. xx

    1. I am going to start calling him Tommy-two-two.
