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.
Just ran across this bathroom remodel. I know, I know, it's corrugated steel -- but just imagine it in copper or brass? Note how the designer (laughalita) used pipes for the towel racks, and very steampunk style lighting fixtures. I love the sink.
