Plate Walls (yet again)

I have actively tried to stop spotting plate walls for fear of boring and/or scaring you, but I'm telling you, they find me.  If you haven't seen the collection, you must visit the plate wall archives
via here





Including these five walls, I've now posted 87 different plate walls.  87!  What's wrong with me (better question yet is why did I count?) ?  Now that I'm this close to 100, I can't stop.  Ugh, it's time for a new obsession, but not until I get to 100 friends.  If you see a plate wall that's not in the archives, please e-mail me!  Help me end this ridiculous obsession.

Oh, come on!..it's an ever evolving display of some vintage, some mod, some art. It's so smart.

I love the idea...but living in the bay area I feel they could crash anytime with mini shakes. :/

Haha I second that on the plates living in So Cal, land of the earthquakes, that's why I collect & frame Art Paper Plates--have you seen them? p.s. I love that motorcycle plate in the top photo--how cool!

How clever is that bird themed plate wall! With my strange knack for running into walls, this form of wall decor may not be my best bet.

Don't worry, I like seeing new plate walls! I started one at home but until I get more plates it's kind lame, so thanks for the continued inspiration!

Keep them coming.
I saw a plate wall in a recent episode of Grey's Anatomy and thought of you :)

I have always loved plates on walls!! It can really make such a statement and you can find some FAB plates out there and without spending a lot of money!! Love this post! =)

Sanity Fair said...

lol. It's more plate walls!!! It's like me and coral. Or me and pillows. So many addictions... so little time. But i'm not complaining. These are great!

The chicken plates are awesome! Don't worry about your obsession; I'm the same way about '50s party dresses. We can't BOTH be crazy, right?

Plate walls remind me of my grandma. Both her & my mom have blue & white china in their yellow bedrooms. Such a pretty combo!

The Cottage Cheese said...

Oh my gosh, that chicken plate wall is so fun! And I love the lavender plate wall over the little desk. A perfect corner in which to work.

I love the plate walls! Don't stop! I'm the same way with art/photo collage walls, must have 50 pics of them, and I can't stop collecting more!

Wendy said...

Love the chicken/bird! If what's-her-name can do a "bookcase of the day", you can certainly do a plate wall whenever you spot a lovely one!

Iva said...

I went through your archives, and got really excited b/c my favorite application (Kelly Wearstler @ the Viceroy) was missing, until I got to your very last picture in your very first post :) There it was!

Plate walls are one of those things that look amazing in photos, but are intimidating to approach in real life. Good luck on your quest, if I see any, I'll send them your way!

Tonya {Kotori} said...

Oh, you're so close! I'll keep my eyes open for some more for you... but you're always so good at finding them yourself!

Hi, I just came across your blog for the first time. I'm happy I have found it! I absolutely share your love for plates on walls. I have been collecting blue and white for some time now, but not yet decided where to place them. I will be happy to follow your blog from now on. Take care, Anna @ Around My Table
