Good Morning design lovers,
It’s Saturday and I don’t normally do reveals on Saturdays but I didn’t want you to have to go all weekend without seeing the vintage airplane room to complete our trilogy of boys rooms at Project Fairbairn.
Similar to the racecar room the homeowners already had a lot of the vintage airplane accessories. They knew what they wanted in this room and really just needed me to pull it all together. The furniture was actually Dads furniture set from when he was a little boy and it’s not only still very sturdy and strong but has lots of sentimental value. I snuck in a new blue nightstand though 😉 Convinced him to let me break up the set a little bit 👍🏼
Here’s what we came up with:
The room has a very long narrow hallway at the entrance with one side lined with closets. We decided to do our old triple mirror trick here to make the hallway feel bigger but also serve as a spot to check yourself out once your outfit is picked 👍🏼
The jumping off point again was this mural. It screams for vintage airplanes and gives the room texture and interest.
We added two airplanes flying around in the sky from restoration hardware.
I added some drapery to frame out the window around the desk and added in a blue denim chair.
This blue bookshelf was another amazing homesense find. I literally had to fight off two woman in the store for it. One tried to take it from my cart when I wasn’t looking. No joke. This actually happened.
New pillows and airplane bedding finishes off this look. It’s grown up and whimsical all in the same breath.
I had the homeowners remove the remove the mirror that was attached to the dresser and we did a little airplane gallery wall above instead.
I love kids spaces that don’t take themselves too seriously. This room can grow with this little guy. Im Sad to be finished this project but delighted that there is already talk of which room is next in this home for 2018.
Have a fabulous holiday if I don’t talk with you guys before then.
And as always
