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.

Red Velvet Library
I have a weakness for red velvet, and for libraries. This ad from Western Interiors March 2008 -- for Sotheby's real estate -- twinged my heart strings. Wall to ceiling books, red velvet curtains, oriental carpets, and heavy wood furniture: lovely, timeless, elegant, dramatic and comfortable.
