We've written about some pretty unusual and creative nursery design concepts, but steampunk is probably the furthest from the conventional that we've ever seen. Never heard of steampunk? Let’s see….how to describe it…..it’s sort of equal parts Charles Dickens’ Victorian storybook, industrial revolution cogs, gears, and machinery, with a bit of futuristic punk mixed in. According to the Urban Dictionary, "Steampunk is a subgenre of speculative fiction, usually set in an anachronistic Victorian or quasi-Victorian alternate history setting. It could be described by the slogan 'What the past would look like if the future had happened sooner.'" Is this what you're looking for for your baby's nursery or child's room? We took a look into the world of steampunk nursery ideas and found some very beautiful, incredibly interesting, and extremely unique items that could be used as decor and design inspiration for your project. Enjoy!

As author George Mann said, “Steampunk is...a joyous fantasy of the past, allowing us to revel in a nostalgia for what never was. It is a literary playground for adventure, spectacle, drama, escapism and exploration. But most of all it is fun!” Have fun designing and decorating your little one's room!
