Inspiration – What’s on your Plate?

There are so many pretty plates around but these really caught my eye.

By Lou Rota and available from 

And just in case the flamingos are too pink and pretty, check out the insects and birds.

Of course, they are far too decorative to eat your dinner off, but they would look great on the wall.

Best hung informally in my opinion. No grids, no lines. Almost randomly, so that the collection can grow over time.

You will notice, that although these plates are hung casually, the collections have a common theme or colour.


So what’s it to be?

    Hej Carole

    Just to let you know, I just realised today I I haven’t been receiving any of your post feeds…:-( SO I have re-subscribed for a 3rd time…fingers cross it will work, has anyone else had a problem? Thought I would let you know, in case it might be something techi or it’s probably just me doing something wrong my end lol!
    I LOVE plate walls…hoping to sacrifice a blank wall in the sommer stuga and do this.
    I love the randomness of them
    Have a great weekend
    Back to LONDON next week YAY!

    P.S. VT Vonen would love to get my hands on a copy of their magazine…do you know who stocks it in London?

    Love the first collection of plates; how gorgeous! Once I’ve finished the blog project, I feel a plate project coming on! x

    Ooooh I really like this. Both the plates themselves and the way they are hung in a little group in the first two pics. Too many could be overkill though, I don’t think I would cover too large an area myself.
