Plates

The theme for SNS at Funky Junk Interiors this week is decorating with plates and that got me to thinking. Yes, I do decorate with plates. So I gathered together a few photos of plates that I have hung or propped around my home.


 These blue transferware plates use to hang in the sun room last summer.

 Then in the fall they were replaced with majolica and brown transferware.

Then Christmas.

 At present time ironstone plates grace the wall.

 These gold color transferware plates are in the master bedroom over my dresser. When this was shared a while back on facebook a person left a comment saying no to plates in the bedroom. What??

 The antique French vassilier in the sitting room has a couple old Staffordshire plates propped up.

Sometimes the dining table is decorated with plates just because.

I have been collecting ironstone for the past two years and have acquired a pretty good collection including plates.

The blue transferware plates that were in the sun room (in the first pic) are now in the dining room.

This is an old plate that hangs in the hallway that I recently shared.

Majolica hangs in the foyer.

More blue transferware in the dining room.

And the plate rack filled with more ironstone plates.

Do you decorate with plates?

Enjoy the weekend!

  3. I decorate with plates, too! I have them over the bed in a guest room. Maybe it's a southern thing!

  4. Kim,
    I love all your plates everywhere in your home. They are all so pretty. People crack me up sometimes with comments like "no plates in the bedroom"!!!!! Why not?? They are like any other decorations you can hang. Crazy!!! I love how you put them together through out your home. Just beautiful Kim.

  8. Yes, I do decorate with plates. And I love all of yours. I see no problem with decorating with plates in the bedroom. I have even seen plates on walls in the bath....

  9. I collect old Imari plates. Always trying to figure out the perfect way to showcase them...I have never hung them on the wall. I love all of your examples. I admire your energy with switching them out seasonally.

    Have a good weekend.

  11. Somewhere back in the 90's, I began to see hanging plates used in decor and liked it immediately. I first hung some of my mother's vintage china on the wall in her dining room and my sisters both commented that they liked it so I was off on a roll. I am continually looking on Ebay, etc. for groupings I can put together.

    Yours are simply stunning and my very favorites are the bedroom plates surrounding that pretty mirror!

    Wish someone would have a day for blog posting entitled "Show off your Wall Plates".

  12. No plates in the bedroom? That is just silly. I have three over a mirror in a bedroom. I used to have plates hanging in a bathroom. That would most likely would have upset the no plates in the bedroom commenter.

  13. I love all your plates. I used to decorate more with them but don't much lately as it seems I've sold most of my plate collection to make room for other things! Designer Charles Faudree is a big fan of decorating with plates and uses many for wallscapes in his French Country style.

  14. No one decorates with plates better that you do! Or has crisper looking bed linens...been thinking about you trying to get my sheets ironed like yours for the one room challenge. Wish you could come over and help me.

  15. Une très belle série d'assiettes. Je reste admirative. J'ai un ami qui est un grand collectionneur d'assiettes anciennes.
    gros bisous

  17. All looks so beautiful!!! I also decorate with plates but they currently don't match the new color scheme of my new little desert cottage so it's on my list of to-do's! LOVE your ironstone! :)

  18. That hutch with the ironstone is ridiculously gorgeous!! I have a big built in in my livingroom that I had filled with blue and white transferware. It was so beautiful but my tastes have changed a bit. Melissa@thetinsel.com

  19. I love how you decorate with plates all through your home Kim. I think plates look wonderful in any room, even the bedroom (where I have two). :)

  20. Pretty plates make great wall art anywhere in the house! I've been known to hang them in the bathroom.

  23. You are the plate queen, Kim! I love the variety of beauties you've displayed all over and how you change them out seasonally! I really want to add a few blue transferware plates ... now, to just find some! Have a great weekend!

  24. Hi Kim. I use a lot of plates on my walls, but you might have me beat. You have amassed quite a collection of ironstone in just two years. And, who, in their right minds, would not want plates in their bedroom!! Just plain crazy..Happy Weekend..Judy

  25. The way you display plates is so inspiring, Kim! Your ironstone collection is impressive and I love love the plate rack. I'm trying to find one too.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Kim, your plate displays are all lovely. I found a plate at the store today that I fell in love with but I didn't love the price. You have inspired me to keep my eyes out for some beautiful plates. I would love for you to link up to 'Saturday Sparks' if you have a chance.
    Thanks for sharing,

  27. Great collection of plates, Kim. I especially like the majolica ones. I decorate with plates, too, although wall space is tight at my house.
    Plates just add so much interest to a room...but then you know that. :)

  28. I love plates anywhere. Would you believe I have them in my bathroom up over the tub? Oh well, I think we can put them anywhere we want, don't you?

  30. I love all your plates and of course they look great in your bedroom too, I have seen many plate's collections hanging in little gir's rooms too and they look so sweet.
    I have vintage children's plates everywhere and I hung some tureen lids on a wall too.
    I enjoy visiting your blog every day.

  31. Kim, it's fun to see how you use your different plates around your home. I like the idea of changing them out seasonally. Yes, I use plates too.....mostly my French faience, but I've a small collection of Majolica too.

  34. Your entire home is gorgeous! Where can you buy transferware plates?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love your plates! I have a weakness for your white iron collection and for your blue transferware plates. Donna had such a great idea with her plate theme party!

  36. Every time you show somrthing I love it. Truly. Your plates are all gorgeous.

  37. You definitely have the prettiest plates and you so beautifully arrange them throughout the house.....and no plates in the bedroom?....never heard that before!..They look fantastic over the mirror!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Beautiful plates are like beautiful artwork. They ARE art! They should be hung wherever they can be enjoyed.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love the way you can change them out with the different seasons...very pretty!

  40. Love all your plates Kim. I need to get some plate hangers. Do you have a favorite?

    ReplyDelete
  41. I smash plates for mosaics and I'm not sure blog land is ready to imagine the lovelies having a hammer taken to them.

  42. I love plates, Kim and that is definitely the first time I heard the no plates in the bedroom rule. Love all the ironstone and the blue and white. My favorites.
    Hugs,
    Laura

  43. You have such a great collection, Kim. I love the one with the soft blue flowers. Ironstone is a mainstay with me.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I have decorated with plates in the past and right now I have 2 platters that I just love as focal point backgrounds in my china cupboard! Love how you have plates as decor in several different places and ways and yet it doesn't look overdone at all. Your decor is wonderful :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Holy cow Kim, you have a lot of plates! Believe it or not, I don't have any up right now, except for the ones in my dining room hutch, but now I'm feeling as if I'm missing the boat. So as someone who rarely hangs plates (but would like to) to someone that clearly hangs a lot, what's your favorite method for hanging plates? And boy, do you get them lined up perfectly! Also, where have you found all your ironstone? I'm amazed at your collection in only two years. I don't go to a lot of garage sales/antique malls, etc. so maybe I'm out of luck, but thought I'd ask. Thanks!

  46. WHY no plates in ythe bedroom, I wonder???? Yours look beautiful there. I love how you cange them out. I should hang some around here:) XO, Pinky

  47. I love ALL your plates, and especially like how you change the plates seasonally in your sunroom! I also have plates, platters, and small bowls around my dresser in my bedroom -- Spode Copeland Byron, a green and brown transferware pattern. My daugher has red transferware plates around her dresser. Another daughter has an arrangement of antique floral plates in her room. Several other spots have plates waiting for them -- they're so versatile and pretty!

  48. Kim, I totally wish I lived closed to you.. So I can say, "I was just in the neighborhood and decided to stop by" LOL!!! I am not sure if that same excuse would work with me being in Ca. :) The second picture is just absolutely Lovely!!!
