Location: Seattle, WA (Capitol Hill)
We moved to Seattle from Atlanta, and it has been a challenge to get all the rooms in the house set up. The house was built in 1903, and our house in Georgia was new construction, so it has been a new adventure out West.
The biggest challenge is the lack of outlets (there is only one in Porter's entire room). Over a year ago I submitted a Good Question to Apartment Therapy about what do to with my collection of hotel key cards, and so I also wanted to share with you what I finally ended up doing with them! I still have plenty left if we decide to have another child (one might be plenty though!). My husband is in the commercial space industry, and I work for an airline so Porter's room is all about flight and the joy of travel.
I found the oversized airline luggage tags at an airline collectible show for $1 each. The two airplane paintings are by Sid Couchey. Ikea was used heavily, but I wanted a dark blue dresser, and this one looked quite nice with the color theme of dark blue, greens and whites. I found one of the modern Eames-like rocking chairs on Hautelook (I know they are overdone nowadays but it is still cute and fun for when he gets older). I made the mobile out of balsa wood airplanes. We made the two pictures over the changing table from a picture we saw on Etsy. On the other side of his room we have a large world map where we put stars on places he has been (and different colored stars for places he went when he was in my belly). Thanks for letting me share!
Thanks, Marietta! Well done!
