Steampunk lighting design is a very fashionable style sometimes described as “retro futuristic”. Although there are different subgenres within steampunk, general, this style could be seen as a representation of what the world if steam engines and gear mechanisms continue to be used instead of electricity and silicon chips. A room decorated in steampunk lighting design should emphasize these aspects while boasts a Victorian character, the use of copper and wood and the presence of whimsical art with motifs like dirigibles and machines of yesteryear.
Paint your room a neutral color as can be cream. Although the style is known as “steampunk”; actually, it’s not like other trends that use the word “punk” in its description. Avoid loud and do not abuse the dark tones colors. Just paint the trim or accents in the room with a darker color that contrasts with the rest of the walls.
Hang curtains that evoke the Victorian behind the steampunk lighting design movement. For girls, lace curtains and brocade fabrics they work well. In a boy’s room, use thick and heavy curtains with simple lines. The chocolate brown, black are all good choices for a curtain. Details such as tassels or metallic finishes highlight much the steampunk theme.
