So you love the Steampunk aesthetic, and you want to encorporate it into your home, but DON'T want it to look like a movie set. I feel ya. I'm a fan of subculture-inspired home design. This is why I've rounded up my favorite Steampunk-y home goods, featuring sneaky, mad scientist-y objects that transform from one piece of furniture into another.
This is Offbeat Home's archive of decor posts.
This week's home tour is a my special Halloween gift to y'all — a haunted house in a de-commissioned B&B in Seattle. It's all decked out the way you'd hope a haunted house would be — antique child's coffin coffee table, antique Halloween goods, metaphysical library, "haunted" ventriloquist dolls, and even snakes abound in this house.
There's one thing in the decoration department that I love to do more than decorating on my own place: decorating my video game character housing. So what happens when two obsessions collides? This happens: An inspiration board from a pretty awesome video game — Fallout 3-Tenpenny Towers.
f you're decorating tastes are more on the eclectic, bohemian, artistic, and wordly side, you're going to draw a LOT of inspiration from the interior of this contemporary Dallas townhouse that was recently on the market. I'm digging the kitchen cabinets something fierce.
Where can you find horror decor that's not Halloween chintz? And how can you keep the creepy spirit in your home year-round, without just looking like you forgot to take down your Halloween decorations?
Oh man, I think I found something to top my wall-mounted shark head — this T-Rex trophy head from Think Geek FTW! Of course, this made me want to explore the wonderful world of faux taxidermy to see what other crazy animal "trophies" I could find. And boy-oh-boy, did I find some awesome shit.
I love this surfboard fence on Maui. Every time I drive by it, it makes me smile. It made me wonder… what other awesome things can surfboards do at home that would make me smile? Fences, showers, coat racks… Here are some awesome ways to repurpose your unused or broken surfboards. Can y'all think of any other ways?
