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.

Although I'm partial to full on red Victorian bedrooms, I thought these could have a place in a steampunk home as well.
I really like the wall color in the first pic and the dresser in the second.
Lynne -- I used a very similar wall color in my office. (Unfortuantely, I have a lot of black and dark furniture against it, so I don't think it works as well as it does in the picture above...)
