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.

A Perfect Library
Loved this library, designed by Sills Huniford Associates.
The ladder, the desk, the balloon curtains, the glass fronted bookshelves... they are just perfection.
