Here's a new report from the Wall Street Journal on an interesting apartment for sale.  Much of it is very well done indeed, not sure about the bedroom but the whole enchilada shows a huge injection of imagination. markf

I guess part of the huge price tag is the location.  But the notion of Steampunk as residential "high fashion" is interesting.

I used to participate in a family business whose main purpose was to sell 17th C. - 19th C. European / Spanish inspired "residential fantasies" as I call them (i.e. custom carved architectural facades, fireplaces, fountains, balusters -all in natural limestone) for multimillion dollar homes.  It was "architectural high fashion," as it were.  Did well for a while, but the business went south in the mid 2000's when every low level wealthy person suddenly felt an urge to live an Tuscan grainery / farm house. Every thing was Tuscan this -Tuscan that.... Tuscan food, even barfy romance Movies situated in Tuscany??   Tongue  If you were not selling brown sandstone rocks by the ton you were not in business.

Maybe I can revive the business building Steampunk mansions!

I don't actually want to live there—a bit too hard-edged for me.  They've definitely gone for the "industrial" version of steampunk rather than the polished Victorian.  (Indeed, parts of it almost seem almost more diesel-punk).  I do quite like some of the features, though.  Like the the front door (though I'd like the wheel to be on the INside). And the rolling table in the kitchen--I'd love to see whatever's beneath its glass surface. 

But my favorite feature has to be the glowing dirigible light fixture in the kitchen.  What a great way to incorporate dirigibles into an interior!
