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.

Alchemist's Chamber at the Baltimore Symphony Decorator's Showhouse
My friend Kara sent me this link from Pigtown Design -- it looks like steampunk has made another showhouse fundraiser -- this on in Baltimore. (By my count that's 3 -- San Francisco and Philadephia.)

David @ McLain Wiesand is such a huge talent. If you go to my blog and google MW, you can see a lot of his other great pieces.
Thank you so much for showcasing my showhouse room! All the proceeds from ticket sales to the showhouse fund the childrens programs that the Baltimore Symphony puts on. There are more pics of the room we did on our blog, www.mclainwiesand.blogspot.com
