Plates on the wall

Not too long ago I decided that some of my favourite china plates and platters that I'd been collecting or had been given weren't getting the attention they deserved by being locked up in a cabinet. I set out to do what many have done before and hung them on the wall. I have 7 hung there now, and after seeing some of the images below, realize that the 'layered' plate look is awesome and I should get more up there asap. As such, I will wait to share images of my own wall and instead share the walls of other.

Previously the domain of grandmothers, hanging plates can look super modern if it's done in a contemporary way - a swooping configuration, colour-blocked or in an unexpected spot like the bathroom. I think the best part is that it allows you to buy one plate in a pattern you absolutely love but maybe couldn't afford as the whole set and look at it as often as you like.

  1. Great idea! I love the first one - that "swoopy" pattern is really cool - I want to see your wall!
