Plates On The Wall

Boxwood Terrace blog

I LOVE plates, china, pottery, dishes, etc., of all kinds.  I have a fabulous collection of creamware, blue and white teacups and saucers from various countries in Europe, and when I vacationed in Italy, I purchased hand painted ceramics from Deruta and just about every other town we visited. I can think of no better way to show off a collection than by hanging it on a wall.

Any style, any room, any plate. 
It works!

I'm trying to convince a client to hang some of her collection in her dining room. Hope this helps!

So lovely...
I love seeing collections on display not stored.

And I also adore and collect lots of plates, potteries, and ceramics... I really think its a girl thing.

I have always enjoyed displaying plate collections on walls. It really brings an understated warmth to a room. The image you've shown with the bathroom is very unique. Thanks for sharing! Have a lovely weekend!

Gorgeous inspirations! I have always wanted to do this for my home but I am not sure how to secure them properly.

Anyway, hope you have a beautiful weekend, Carla!

I love plates on the wall - I grew up with it and have often thought of adding it in my kitchen but never quite get there. I just love the green in the Charles Faudree!!

If this doesn't convince your client nothing will! Beautiful collection of images showcasing a variety of styles where this type of display would work.

When done right...beautiful!

When done wrong...dinner at Grandmas.

These are all right!

Cool interior! Love the "wall art" collections. It really goes well with whatever design. Great post, check out also 3D Rendering

I love so many of these...but the baskets and the silver trays are ones that really stood out for me...what a great post and perfect sister and I were just talking about this and I think this will more than answer her questions!!

Huge fan of plates hung on the wall. What I like is you can accomplish a great impact with minimal money if your budget is limited. I used to pick up great finds at antique shops because a nick or crack just added to their charm. Great ideas Carla and would you believe I did bring a collection with me from a Houston Charity Shop; 60s era U.S. souvenir plates to remind me of home.

Great post!!!

Love your blog! What a beautiful collection of ideas! Do you happen to know the name of the green plates?

Hi Jen,
I'm sorry I don't. If you're referring to Tobi Fairley's room, you might try her....she's got a great website and blog where you can post a question. If it's the Charles Faudree, I'm not really sure about getting in touch with him, but they look like antique majolica to me.

Thanks for visiting!

Wonderful ideas! Any chance you or anyone else knows what the yellow plates on the wall in the Atlanta Homes piece are called? Thanks, Jennifer
