If you know someone who is interested in airplanes, who creates and exhibits models, or who loves to fly, airplane propeller decor offers many options for gifts. If you are the person, you are spoiled for choice between single, double, triple and quadruple propellers. Add posters, framed pictures, and wall art for a coordinated decor that goes with an aviation theme or even a nautical theme. Somehow, the idea of flying is always inspiring, whether it’s a bird or an airplane.
Single / double blade propeller
These are often three or four feet long, which makes them a great way to highlight a skyscape with flying machines. They can also be used to make a statement in a tight wall space that would otherwise be empty. Since the originals had different colors, these artistic replicas are also available in different colors. They can be made of wood or metal. Make sure you have some surface clearance as these are three dimensional.
Triple and quadruple propellers
Not all propellers were one long piece with blades on each end. Some had three blades, some even four. As propeller blades turn, they seem to multiply until they blur into a circle of motion. Artistic representations of these blades combine realism with fantasy, as well as the use of color and distress.
Framed photos, paintings and murals
The combination of decorative propeller blades with photos, paintings and murals creates a uniform theme for room decoration. Add some ropes and stanchions, lounge chairs on the beach, and maybe a seagull or two for a look reminiscent of the English Channel or the shores of New England where a successful flight has been tested and eventually achieved. Below are ten decorating ideas for anyone who loves flying. The propellers, pictures and the mural are an inspiration for your aviation interior. There might even be a boat propeller or two in the mix. Sea and sky mix very well, especially small planes that sail across the vast ocean into the vast blue over there. Admire these decorations and let yourself dream of distant places, achievements and stories of daring deeds.
