Subtle Steampunk Sanctuary

House Tours, Inspiration

These two photos of a loft apartment stopped me on my tracks:

The industrial elements – metal, rivets, exposed pipes and brick – plus the patina of the wood and corrugated metal, combined with chunky leather sofas and a few large plants, deliver a certain old-world sentimentality. The result contains a subtle hint of steampunk while retaining modern comforts. Beautifully done!

Note: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention this; just passing along a good thing.

    1. Isn’t it great? Getting that kind of a space with the huge widows might not be that easy, but the rest is not that far out, especially if you collect the pieces over time.

      1. It looked like one of those old converted warehouse turned loft spaces. I’ve always loved those but have never had the opportunity to live in one. My husband and I have a huge collection of figures and other collectibles and I think that it’d look wonderful framed in that kind of setting.

        As far as collecting concerned, I imagine that unless you’re super rich, the only way to do it is over time. When I think of what we’ve spent over the years, the amount’s staggering. But it’s done so slowly that you barely realize you’re doing it (except when you hit those major items that cost a couple hundred bucks, then you’re like, “Whoa, wait just a minute. Are you sure you want this?” But in the end, when it’s what you really want, it’s always worth the expense.
