Vintage Airplane Nursery

This amazing nursery with a vintage airplane theme was sent to us by Megan Ann Photography. The inspiration for the nursery design came from the aviator jacket hanging in the room, which belonged to baby Pierce’s grandfather, a Navy pilot. The vintage airplane models found throughout the nursery and red toy plane rocker are such perfect decor for the theme. The classic red and blue color palette paired with the rich wood furniture pulls it all together. The personalized mural, with Pierce’s name spelled out in the airplane’s trail, adds some touches of whimsy and fun. We love these lovely photos by Megan Ann Photography!

    LOVE this nursery! Where is the bedding from? It looks like a pottery barn set I was looking at but I noticed the blanket on the chair had airplanes on it which I also thought was really cute! Do you know who makes it?

    Hi!! This is just what I had in mind for our baby’s room! My husband is taking aviation classes and loves planes. he’s going to be daddy’s little co-pilot :-)

    Do you mind sharing where you got the red retro airplane in the room? We were looking for one but haven’t been able to find one in our area. Or if you could share the make/model or who makes it that would be great.

    Much love to you!! Looks like a beautiful family, excellent photography!!!

    Hello. My husband loves airplanes and grew up building model airplanes with his dad and uncles, so it only seems appropriate for our nursery to be airplane themed for our son due in August. I prefer the vintage look. You did an excellent job! Where did you purchase the model airplanes?
