I just got an email from J.D. Ray with pictures of his cafe in Portland, which has recently reopened in a new space with a steampunk inspired decor. (My plans for world domination march forward, as J.D. says "the pictures, projects, and general ideas on things that you've posted on your blog were instrumental in us developing the decor for our cafe.")
The cafe features warm coloring, fabulous light fixtures, and a lovely gear laden mural.
Thanks for sharing, J.D. -- I know I'll be visiting next time I'm in Portland!

The steam engine, with the Taj Mahal in the background, makes for one of the most romantic steampunk images I've ever seen.
