When we first walked into our new house we knew that this room will become something special. We decided to create an "Aviator's room" where almost everything will have something to do with aviation. It took a while but today, after Ziggy has finished building the Bleriot model, the room is complete. Well, at least we think so at the moment but you never know ...
This is definitely our favorite room in the whole house and the couches are soooo comfy.
The theme starts before you enter the living area but the walls are not dark yet:
We framed all drawings made by our very talented friend in Waikerie not too long ago. These are all gliding/towing cartoons involving real people, planes and situations. A piece of history for us:
A great gift from Tom Stowers also found its home here:
There is a very long story about the aviator coffee table. We were trying hard to ship this table from the USA to Australia from a store that doesn't ship overseas. We failed but in the end (after months) found a company in Melbourne that imported this table. This one is our pride and joy.
