As a designer trying to come up with something fresh and new can be.... challenging. For example, I have decided to design a bathroom around a Steampunk/1930’s 40’s aviation. Seems fairly simple right? But what on earth is Steampunk? Well if you explore the internet you’ll find various opinions of what Steampunk is...
Steampunk is described as a sci fy, fantasy, alternate history… Alternate history! Who comes up with this stuff? Within Steampunk you’ll find aspects of steam power, Victorian era, Wild West era, mechanical, and advance machinery…Talk about confusing. So, on my “neo Victorian, pre petroleum” quest I’ve jotted down some elements which I think are Key to Steampunk décor…
Mechanics (think watch parts)
Magnify glass or Goggles
Hot air Balloons
I’d love to hear your thoughts about Steampunk…
