Inspiration: Plate Wall

So I often find myself day dreaming about how I can change things up within my condo....
because lets be honest, i will probably be in this condo for the rest of my life based off of the current state of the economy

one idea that i have seen a lot of lately is a plate wall... it was something that i LOVED but never really thought there was a place in my condo, until I saw Molly's plate wall on her blog it inspired me to find a wall to transform...

so what about this wall??
its off of the family room? that looks over the kitchen table


what do you think?

I would remove the clock and the corner wire piece - and add plates similar to the ones below

So do you think this would work on my wall? Using the colors in my family room?
[tiffany blue, artichoke green, chocolate brown and white]

I really appreciate your opinions on what you think!

Not sure how I feel about a plate wall but I love you color combo. Never would have thought to put that together myself.

Love it! I think it will look great on your family room wall! I can't wait to see the finished product!

It would totally work! I love the more vertical arrangement (the one with the pink) would look fab.

I just finished a plate wall in my kitchen... as soon as the sun shines again here in gray Ohio I am going to take some photos. I love it. You should go for it.

Holly said...

I have been debating a plate wall also! I love it! Do it!

Shannon Dew said...

I think it's a great idea!!! You are so creative I know it will look amazing!

Melissa Jo said...

Yes, do it! That will looks so great! My mom has own, and I'm constantly on the look out for new unique plates to trade out. I've found great ones at thrift stores and antique malls.
