Plate Wall

I'm still gathering plates from thrift stores for my plate wall. I found another photo for inspiration on lovely Charlie's Design Diary. These are all Marimekko plates. What do you think? I love the black flower...

Here is a link ( to an abundance of plate walls - most of the photos are from Domino Mag. Thomas Paul silhouette plate wall is fantastic, and your profile plate is on that wall too!

I love this!!! When I see hangings like this I always hold on to them, because if I was facing a blank wall I would never come up with such creative configurations!

Fantastic look. I thought a wall of clocks is great but this is even better (and quite likely, cheaper!)

I'm so impressed that you were able to find these gorgeous plates at thrift stores ... every time I look, all I find is a bunch of chipped boringware. Do you have a secret?

Loooove marimekko patterns. My mum was a Marimekko addict when I was little, and I have (to pass down to our daughter) some lovely '60s Marimekko kids clothing from my own babyhood. Gotta post that one of these days!

I love that wall! I buy a plate every time I go to Anthropology. I like to eat off pretty plates, but I'm seriously thinking about a plate wall now.

The black flower is the obvious star, but I think the arrangement of an excellent collection is a little clunky. . .It's needs to be dynamic and unresolved, which is what this arranger was going for, but didn't quite achieve. I love this discussion. Plate walls are so under-appreciated and such a wonderful way to express a personal sensibility that's wholly contemporary and affectionate toward tradition.

Neat idea, using vintage plates! And I love anything marimekko as well...

LOVE these. The fun Marimekko patterns really make a very traditional decorating trick (i.e., the plate wall) fresh and modern.

I've always wondered how people install these plates. These are pretty.

I adore these, especially with the black and white tablecloth.

What a great idea...a plate wall. Will they need to be dusted often? That's sometimes a deal breaker for me. :)

Maybe you can post a picture of yours when it's finished!

This image is in my inspiration folder too, I never thought I'd love plates on walls, but I'm TOTALLY infatuated. I love this arrangement too, my efforts at haphazard never look quite so graceful! :D

Tina, Thank you so much for the mention! I adore that photo, the composition of the plates against a bright white wall, the red chair peeking from behind that awesomely retro black and white fabric used as a tablecloth is marvelous. So pleased you liked it. I'll pass your details to the people at Marimekko, they will love your post!

What a super idea! I have a birdhouse wall on one side of my storage shed at the lake plus a series of cups/saucers hanging under my kitchen cupboards but your plate wall - I love it! The black elements make it very dramatic.
