[ From Left to Right ]
One of my son’s first words was AAAAA that was accompanied by enthusiastic pointing towards the sky -which meant “airplane.” We have a lot of airplanes here in Myrtle Beach that fly up and down the beach with banners advertising $4.99 hoodies and hermit crabs at various Beach Ware stores, so there has been a lot of pointing at airplanes in his lifetime. Now that he’s older (the ripe old age of 3) he loves to play with airplanes and make them “fly”. When I was browsing through Belle & June’s cute kids collection, I noticed a lot of really cute airplane accessories which would be an adorable theme for a nursery that would transition easily into a Big Boy room. I am pretty sure most little boys love airplanes as much as mine does!
I’m a big fan of artwork and furniture growing with your decor and home – anything too “baby” is adorable for a nursery, but not practical for the other stages. If you don’t have a budget – fantastic! If you do have a budget, it’s wise to pick items that work for both a nursery and the “big boy” room a few years later.
These two coordinating paintings are adorable, and I love the color scheme of both. I think they would look great side-by-side in a nursery or the bi-plane on top of the other airplane above a little set of shelves.
Blue Star Tissue Box
How adorable is this navy and white tissue box? This little tissue box would look great in a navy, red & white nursery and perfectly compliments the airplane artwork. This would also look adorable in a pretty navy themed restroom, and wouldn’t always have to live in a nursery or little boy’s room! Also available as a wastebasket.
Powder Blue & Red Star Wastebasket
I LOVE love LOVE pale blue and red as a color scheme. This simple wastebasket would add a cute little detail to a nursery, playroom or big boy room – and coordinates perfectly with the airplane theme!
Airplane Balance Toys
As I mentioned in the circus theme post, these balance toys are so vintage and classic, they are more of a sculpture than toy. I love the look and colors of these little airplanes, and think they would really stand out on a shelf on a wall or on top of a dresser.
Airplane Step Stool
This adorable step stool with a painted airplane is perfect for a little bathroom, and your baby boy can learn to brush his teeth standing over the sink in style. I’m not a big fan of going too far and extending any theme with too many details, but a step stool in the bathroom doesn’t cross the line in my opinion. A gigantic airplane mural in the bathroom that matches the gigantic replica of an airplane in the nursery would be an example of taking it too far. One little detail isn’t extreme!
