Ask the grumpies: Find awesome steampunk pictures

First Gen American asks:

I want a steampunk room in my soon to be new/old fixer house. I humbly request another steampunk article specifically around home decor. I was thinking an office space or guest room to be steampunkalicious.

Oh, good, an excuse for a linkfest!  First: Offbeat Home on Steampunk.  Click around the vendor links and stuff.

An awesome house in San Francisco (seriously, click through you guys).

An Octopus chair from Maximo Riera:

Do want!

A steampunk house print available on etsy:


Wouldn’t this be nice to hang in your room?

Lamps like this are popular:


You need light, anyway.  Though I think this one is more fun:


If you’re doing an office, definitely think about doing a steampunk computer.  Mary Robinette Kowal has a tutorial…

Check out this desk made from an old organ:


Or, this more modern desk is from a whole article about steampunk decor:


If you want a lighter look.

If it’s a bedroom, you’ll need a bed.  DarkerLighter but still naughtyWhimsical


For the young at heart


Or classic!


In any case, click around the pages linked.  Lots of cool stuff is on etsy.  Amazing art is on deviantart and other sites.  Fashion is the most fun; look at Clockwork Couture for inspiration.

I could go on forever, but I have to eat dinner now.

Share cool things you find in the comments!

    Hmmm…maybe a steam punk pot rack is in order…felling inspired already. I need to call my bike shop friends and have them start saving old crank rings for me. The new place will be more unique and less cookie cutter. Old houses deserve to have more character. Thank you loads.
