One of the first things to make me fall
head-over-heels for steampunk was the house of Bruce & Melanie
Rosenbaum, who've since created ModVic
design. The house is a three-story Victorian which the couple
painstakingly remodeled in all ways steampunk, and every year or so it
goes viral again online. Happily, this past week saw the house popping
up all over again, so I get an excuse to revisit some of my favorite
You've probably already seen Bruce's incredible computer desk, since that's their most famous creation:
See lots more photos of the house here, and thanks to all of you who sent in the link!
And since we're talking about my steampunk first loves, here's an older - but still awesome - video from 2009 spotlighting one of my first-ever Maker heroes, Jake Von Slatt:
If you just felt a disturbance in the Force, then I think I may have an explanation:
It's not out 'til July, but you can pre-order the hardcover at that Amazon link up there for less than $12! Suh-WEET! I think I want it just for the cover art. Is that wrong?
Next up, we're getting a double-dose of amazing steampunk decor today, because Sarah M. spotted a steampunk restaurant that's guaranteed to make you swoon. Me, I'm already on the floor.
See more pics over on TecheBlog.
Since I seem to be on an interior design streak today: A few of you have sent me this fantastic roundup of sources for everything you need to make your own caged pendant lights for - get this - less than $11 each! DUDE. We are so doing this. (Just FYI, John, sweetie.)
And finally, I've seen a few different versions of "mounted tentacle" art out there, but this one Rachel C. found is by far the coolest:
Not only is the sculpture creepily realistic, the acrylic "water splash" and rusted porthole hanger are fantastic extra touches. These come in three different sizes and a few other colors as well. I particularly like the blue/green:
Or for a slightly more modern and cartoony style (or at least less slimy), there's also this one:
So fun! And that's officially something I never thought I would say about disembodied tentacles, y'all.
Hope you guys are having a great weekend! As always, please share your steamy creations/finds here in the comments or over on the Epbot Facebook page!
