Vintage Travel Themed Office

Our adventure office has been a long time coming about, its a mix of all things travel and history. With touches of vintage aviation. safari and archeology. When we first started working on this space we knew we wanted it to feel like you were on a safari. So we painted the walls a sandy tan color because this room is in our basement we and doesn’t get much light so we tried to keep the walls as light as we could while still getting that warm color. As the room started to take shape, we began adding touches of aviation and space.

I have a special love for old planes and space, I know it’s a bit strange but old planes make me so happy! Older the better- especially biplanes.  We used dark pieces of furniture around the room to give it that heavy feel of an old study, like this table we picked up at a yard sale a while back and spray painted black. We also used this metal shelf in one corner, we wanted it to be a mixture of function and display so we placed some baskets to hold office stuff. We also placed little treasures here and there, like trunks and polished rocks and other things we collected over the years.

Behind the desk, we hung this giant map we found at Hobby Lobby and a propeller we found on Antique farmhouse a while back. On either side of the map we hung square prints. One is a beautiful travel-themed one from Hobby Lobby on the other side it says “Your story matters, share it with the world”. It seemed fitting for a writer’s office.

On one of the shelves, we displayed our collection of nests. I think it’s an interesting touch among the touches of travel and bits of history we displayed here.

On this shelf, we placed an old chest and sprinkled polished rocks and shards of things we found in the yard. Fun fact that amazing metal piece at the back we found in our garden, and the piece of a bottle we found digging in our creek.

I love the top of this shelving unit so much, we have shells, old bullets we believe to be from the civil war (we dug them out of the garden), arrowheads old marbles (also found in our yard), petrified wood, sand from the mount of olives, reproduction WW2 Buttons, a giant moth, and an old aspirin bottle we found out in the yard. We also placed a lantern and a chest filled with all kinds of treasures (can you tell I have a problem with chests?).

This wall was so much fun to put together! Over the years we’ve collected each piece or made them. We have pieces or artwork, clay moon, and sun, a leather mask a country map our dear friends brought us on one of their visits.

Brianna was amazing at Remembering World War II this year [Check out our trip HERE] and asked the Captain America re-anactor for an autograph. She’s awesome! Love you, sis.

That massive volcano is from an old school project, we built it with my grandmother many years ago and never had the heart to erupt. We want to turn it into a light but for now, it sits on top of the armoire. We placed a pile of books and a model plan on one side and suitcases with nature books and a camera on the other as if someone has just returned from an expedition somewhere.
