Hi there. First things first….happy to announce the lucky winner of the Safavieh shoe ottoman! Here’s the lucky person….
The giveaways are not over, another amazing one from Nancy’s daily dish (aka queen of transferware) at the end of this post so stay tuned! I loved putting this post together…….I have always loved the look of a plate or porcelain platter collection on a wall. It is at once, charming, beautiful and warm. It exudes elegance while really lending a certain warmth and charm to a space. Do you agree? Ironically, this look is applicable towards virtually any style room, not just traditional as you will see. Though I have always admired the look, I have admittedly not actually used a plate collection on my own walls, it does not mean I won’t. In fact I am really hoping to sooner than later.
For such a large home, we have few blank walls….but I am determined to find a little nook to try my hand at this and in the meantime, have so enjoyed my “research” which serves as further confirmation why I love the look so much. And if that’s not enough, super talented Nancy of Nancy’s daily dish fame…has so generously offered a giveaway AND a discount code to anything on her site!! Does it get better? All details to follow on the bottom…..
Peggy Stone nailed this fabulous setting with all that gorgeous blue and white!! Love it……
Cathy Kincaid completed this incredible room (one of my all time faves) with a collection of plates and porcelains to adorn the wall….who needs wallpaper when you have this!
Wow! Talk about adding a serious dose of drama ( wouldn’t want to be there during an earthquake) Alberto Pinto
Andrea O’Meara knocked it out of the park with this simple but elegant vignette using plates
The warmth of the rich woods is the perfect backdrop to this exquisite collection, Nancy’s daily dish
Think this is such a great idea! Using a collection in a space that you see all the time, above a hall console table…..stunning!
Two really unique ideas here….framed plates and plates on brackets, love it! Anita Meek
Love the idea of using the same pattern but different sizes and grouping them around a mirror!
I also think the idea of adding assorted plate sizes and shapes all in the same color is particularly great for a more transitional space, House Beautiful
Love the gorgeous collection of blue and white plates in this wonderful nook of shelves, Trad Home
Positive proof that this look works for any top of space beautifully including this eclectic one, Daydecor
