Hi there. First things first….happy to announce the lucky winner of the Safavieh shoe ottoman! Here’s the lucky person….

Result: 19

Susan Snavely Kohr Came over to this site from Tina at The Enchanted Home… Beautiful giveaway!
Congrats Susan!  Contact me here with your shipping details.

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……

Just adore the colors in this room, its inviting and rich and elegant……and got a great idea of adding plates to  a small interior wall (yes even atop wood)!

 Wow….the impact of the gorgeous blue and white and dried hydrangea is spellbinding!
