Humankind has always dreamed of having the ability to fly, and a century or so ago, that dream came true with the inventiveness of the Wright Brothers and the other pioneers of the aviation industry. You can use the power of flight to make your decor soar to new heights when you incorporate model planes into your interior designs.
Classic flying machines that include biplanes, Trimotors, and zeppelins evoke images of the golden age of aviation, and it’s a simple process to capture this feeling in your decor with model planes. Whether used in a den, study, bedroom, or a place of honor in the living or family room, these intricate models not only provide a sense of adventure and glamour, but they serve as educational devices, as well. If there’s a child in your home or if your visitors include children, model planes can be an important way for them to learn about early aviation technology.
For aviation buffs or for people who possess an innate sense of curiosity, these beautifully designed models can captivate the imagination and serve as wonderful conversation pieces. Your guests and family members will feel as if the sky’s the limit as they examine the finely crafted details of the engines, propellers, wings, and fuselage.
While many collectors display these works of art on shelves, you can create a more authentic feeling by suspending them from the ceiling so that they are in the air, their natural element. Imagine how one of these model planes would look floating above a stairwell, lending itself to examination from many angles as you ascend the stairway. Or consider strategically placing a zeppelin or other model above a sofa and chairs so that it provides a conversation piece and helps to anchor the seating area.
For a child who dreams someday of piloting their own aircraft, what better gift than one of these handsome model planes? Suspended from the ceiling of their bedroom or perched in a place of honor on a shelf, it’s sure to be one of their longtime treasured possessions.
So take your decor to new heights and let your spirits soar by incorporating model planes into your decorating scheme.
