Matteo’s Aviation Travel Nursery


This is Matteo's aviation travel nursery.

Design Inspiration

Both my husband and I love to travel and would love our child to see the world and love to travel as well.  We also incorporated aviation into the theme because we love the idea of him flying through the sky above the clouds through life and ready for all the adventures he'll take.

We wanted to purposefully put it together with items from our own adventures, things our family and friends contributed through time to pull everything together.  We wanted the room to represent what we believe in- that the world is one big adventure, but your family and friends are always there to support and love you through your journeys!

Map- this chalkboard map can be written and drawn on in the future.  Our hope is our child will be able to identify places he'd like to go to and explore in the future.


Have fun with the room and don't be too concerned with perfection.  Be inspired from everything and take ideas you've seen and incorporate your own personality and spin on it.  Your baby's room should be a reflection of you and your husband's personality and a place where the baby can build his own little personality.
