From My Home to Yours: Plates

I’m not sure why, but I have the hardest time deciding what to put on the walls of my home. So much so, that it took me over a year to complete the gallery wall in my hallway. Last year I painted my office / living room, and there are still several blank walls in that space. I’m not sure where my hesitation comes from. Maybe it’s about putting holes in a freshly painted wall or spending the money and time trying to find the perfect piece, I just don’t know. However, I am trying to get past these fears and get some things on my walls.

Despite my lack of motivation to tackle certain walls in my home, my dining room is a different story. My dining room was one of the first rooms I painted when I bought my home (however now it’s a different color), and my collection of plates was one of the first things I ever hung. I still love it. Even though design trends come and go, a collection of plates artfully hung on a wall never seems to get old.

That’s why today I’m sharing my favorite plate finds with you. Whether you’re buying new or vintage, plates are a great way to add color, pattern, and style to your home. Mix them up, have fun, and show off your style with this timeless wall decor idea.

Oh, and while you’re at it, pick up some of these adhesive discs. They are an excellent way to hang plates.

Do you have a collection of plates hung anywhere on your walls?

  1. Yes! So clever. Now there’s something I can use those spare + odd plates for. Also think it could be good mixing with embroidery hoops?

  2. i have a few hanging on my wall in the kitchen with a few small serving plates. i found them at the Hosparus thrift store, yard sales, and one is from my Mom.
