Hanging plates on a wall is nothing new, that’s not to say that this time-honored decorative tradition can’t be fresh. I love the effects created by the collections in the images below. Unexpected placements, layering, color groupings, freeform asymmetrical shapes … same concept, wildly different takes. See? Collecting things is still allowed and encouraged, as long as said things are pretty and make you happy (so much room for interpretation).
The blue and white plates want to be traditional, but the color contrast against the Suzani and composition don’t allow it.
There is so much to love about this image. It’s over-the-top at it’s finest!
A sweet and vintage approach.
Now, a dark and moody approach.
Scattered Blue and Whites in the bedroom. Rooster lamp for the win.
Mostly sweet (with a fierce looking pup in the mix to let you know these plates are messing around). I love the texture and layering of this one.
All black and white on graphite on an outside wall at the Viceroy.
It’s okay to let a clock join in on the fun, as long as it works well with the plates.
Cool Marimekko Plates.
On an outside corner. Love.
If you’re lazy (no judgement), you can always get some of these porcelain plate wallpapers from Studio Ditte!
