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.

Old Charles Street Jail
NYTimes.com today has a slideshow of Boston's Old Charles Street Jail which has been turned into a hotel. Many of the design elements -- exposed brick, iron bars -- would work well in a steampunk home.
More inspiration posts.
