Charlie’s Vintage Aviator Nursery in Blue and Red


Rivaling my honors thesis and my wedding, finding just the right elements for Charlie's vintage airplane nursery produced a finished product I am so proud of.

Design Inspiration

My husband, Charles, built and flew airplanes with his own father. Like his name, I wanted Charlie's nursery to also incorporate his heritage.

Decorating Style

Vintage with a touch of the whimsical.

Favorite Items

Definitely the vintage airplane mobile and propeller.


Never start with a bed in a bag. If everything matches perfectly, it starts to look to theme-y. Rather, search for items that fit a general theme, but stand alone as well.

I was looking for a wide-angle photo of the room to see how it looks in its entirety. But judging from the close-up shots of the details, I have no doubt it's a very lovely nursery.
