I believe that Steampunk is more than just brass and watchparts. It's finding a way to combine the past and the future in an aesthetic pleasing yet still punkish way. It's living a life that looks old-fashioned, yet speaks to the future. It's taking the detritus of our modern technological society and remaking it into useful things. Join me as I search for items for my house that combine the scientific romanticism of the Victorians with our real present and imagined future.

Brown and Gold Library
A wonderfully masculine library with leather chairs with brass nailhead trim, a butler's tray on a stand, a small folding Moroccan side table, and lots of books in dark wood bookcases.
