Finds from Pottery Barn

It's that time of year again -- all the fall catalogs are coming in the mail. Here's what Pottery Barn has this season that is steampunk influenced or appropriate to a steampunk home.

First, the best two styling ideas from the fall catalog.


The gold, browns, and greys in this gallery wall really appealed to me. (I've been searching out well done gallery walls for ideas for my house, and this one has the eclectic mix of framed art and more tactile items, united by a good color scheme, that I like.)

Halloween-y, but I liked the idea of stacking books under a glass cloche.


Lastly, a kaboodle list with my choices -- some new, some have been around a while.

Oooo I love the booking stacking idea too :)

This is pretty! And helpful...I've been trying to figure out how to rearrange my pictures and like the idea of using different color mats :)

Beautiful post. I'm in the process of doing a gallery for our home. Perfect timing! Thanks :)

As usual, some charming items! Thanks for the gallery wall post in particular, it helped me with a wall I'm planning. The gray velvet drapes are lovely but in 96" size are a bit pricey at $129/panel. A very decent alternative are the Fairfield Velvet Stripe drapes at Target, at $32.99/panel.They look great in one of our bedrooms.

We went to the Edison Bar last night and I am so inspired today - I love your blog, please post more. I'm off to the Pottery Barn! Thanks.

and have you seen the autumn "restoration home" catalog? all sorts of interesting steampunk-ish items in there, albeit at astronomical prices...

nofixedstars said...

actually, it's "restoration hardware"...oops.

oooh...just got back from target, where there is currently a collection of housewares by a john derian which fit nicely into the steampunk domestic sphere. fabric-covered bins in insect print or marbleized print, trays with bugs & vintage-y looking stuff, kitchen wares too. don't miss the clothing department whilst there---quite a few lace & ruffle embellished tops and a sweet little military jacket...
