Are you a fan of steampunk designs? Not sure what steampunk style is?  It was originally named by science fiction author K.W. Jeter in 1987.

Think late Victorian era, metals, and machines run on steam. Steampunk designs often have special details like gears, compasses, pipes, trunks, cogs, brass and copper things, plus leather, top hats, goggles and corsets. Together, these give the design a vintage-futuristic look.

The color schemes tend to be darker but the look can be really beautiful when the industrial steampunk style is used. If you aren’t ready for full on steampunk, look at adding a couple of industrial steampunk touches to a room or around your home. If you need some inspiration here are lots of gorgeous steampunk style rooms.
