Happy almost August everyone. Can you believe July is almost over? I’m not ready for summer to end! I have a few weeks left to savor and one more trip planned, then the kids go back to school in 2 ½ weeks, noooo!
I’m still very much inspired by my recent travels to France and other European countries and am trying to keep little bits of my travel experience alive at home, especially in the kitchen (pass the fromage and rosé, s’il vous plaît!). I loved reading this article on French cooks and the comments are great too. More favorite links below.
I was catching up on blogs yesterday and browsing some lovely home tours. This one popped out at me (gorgeous tile throughout!) and then I noticed the lovely arrangement of plates on the wall.
I’ve never arranged a group of dishes on a wall in my home, but I find the look so charming. Being a collector and lover of attractive dishes, I’m certainly considering one now!
This one stood out, I loved its composition and the medley of patterns in this breakfast room, plus it’s mostly blue and white so there’s that too. :)
Much like a gallery wall, you can display plates in a symmetrical or asymmetrical arrangement, both are equally eye catching. Dishes aren’t just for the kitchen, they look lovely in a sunroom, entry, etc.
The look can also be more traditional in style or take on a more modern vibe depending on the arrangement and the chosen dishes. I found several well executed plate wall displays around the web to inspire!
