Plates on the Wall

I was catching up on blogs yesterday and browsing some lovely home tours. This one popped out at me (gorgeous tile throughout!) and then I noticed the lovely arrangement of plates on the wall.

I’ve never arranged a group of dishes on a wall in my home, but I find the look so charming. Being a collector and lover of attractive dishes, I’m certainly considering one now!

This one stood out, I loved its composition and the medley of patterns in this breakfast room, plus it’s mostly blue and white so there’s that too. 🙂

Much like a gallery wall, you can display plates in a symmetrical or asymmetrical arrangement, both are equally eye catching. Dishes aren’t just for the kitchen, they look lovely in a sunroom, entry, etc.

The look can also be more traditional in style or take on a more modern vibe depending on the arrangement and the chosen dishes. I found several well executed plate wall displays around the web to inspire!

What’s the best way to hang them on the wall? There are several options, you can purchase hangers for each plate like Kris (find them online, or in art & craft supply stores).

If you prefer the hangers to be hidden you can use superglue to attach hangers, or

purchase disc plate hangers (a better option for larger plates and platters).

Have you hung plates on the wall in your home? What’s your style, a traditional arrangement or more eclectic?
