Scotland Yard (aka the Metropolitan Police Service) is in the news a great deal these days, from tabloid scandals across the pond to the eagerly anticipated Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows sequel coming out in December starring hunks Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. Inspired by the Victorian era, ever-popular Steampunk and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, I had to share my Sherlock-Scotland Yard favorite finds.

What do you think? Have Robert and Jude as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson led you to fall in love with Steampunk decor?

  2. Didn't know about the movie, nor would I say Downey and Law would be responsible for me enjoying this "Steampunk" style (love the name), but I certainly loved picture #3 (the Steam Press Wheels). I'm a huge fan of Restoration Hardware and recognized the decor from their latest "Source Book".

    Seems fitting for the movie.

    I was in love with the interiors and sets from the film. So grimey, yet regal at the same time. I'd decorate my whole house in steampunk if I didn't think it would become a bit depressing after the novelty wore off.

      Agreed – I love looking at Steampunk decor/spaces, but I think I need a little more vibrancy in my own home, especially if I want to wake up in the morning!

    I don't know if I'm so in love with Steampunk decor; however, I'm head-over-heels in love with Robert and Jude.
