|The Alternative Living Expo in Philadelphia|
The Alternative Living Expo in Philadelphia was held last March (and according to Doctor Fantastiques Show of Wonders, will be held again in 2012, so stay tuned!). This past year it included the ModVic’s Back Home to the Future Show, which originally debuted at the Piers Village and Antique Show in New York last Fall. ModVic started as a husband and wife team working to both restore and modernize their beautiful Victorian home in Massachusetts. What started as a work of love for them has become a full-fledged business. Look here for their website, and more pictures of their breath-taking home.
The blog, The Steampunk Home is another excellent resource, constantly scouring the web for new ideas.

Another great resource seems to be the "industrial" movement, taking items that were part of industry, and turning them into household items. It's important to avoid shiny silver items meant for industrial (as in professional hotel or restaurant) kitchens, though, as that is heading in the wrong direction.

Other, more standard keywords that can be helpful in finding Steampunk ideas are "Modern-" or "New Victorian", and English Colonial.
