Steampunk in interior design

When it comes to interior design, steampunk style is definitely gaining popularity. Steampunk decor features an enticing mix of elegant Victorian accessories with strong industrial elements. It blends rough textures with polished surfaces portraying a classic vintage aesthetic from the time of the Industrial revolution.

Within the realms of this style, comfort and luxury co-exist with the desire to discover, travel and explore. Industrialism and different forms of traveling lead to the development of steampunk style interior design. This style is influenced by an imaginative world in which all the machinery is powered by steam.

Colors such as black, dark brown, bottle green, blood red, burnt orange and dark blue are dominantly seen in steampunk decor. These can be offset with pockets of lighter shades like sepia, cream, and soft grey which are enhanced by metal tones and metallic accents. 

Steampunk decor features a functional and minimalistic design using raw materials. Elements with natural and distressed finishes are commonly seen here. These include Metals, glass, concrete, wood and exposed walls and beams. Amongst metals, steel, copper, iron, bronze and brass are the most popular.

The spirit of invention and discovery from the Victorian era have inspired many steampunk artist and fans to come up with some amazing interior design themes.
