Decorative plates are mounted together to create an accent section in the black subway tile wall of this dining room. The french country look of the plate designs contrasts the sleek contemporary look of the black. Simple wood tables with matching chairs make up the dining section. The tables are topped with white napkins and small details to create place settings.
For a no-commitment approach to jazzing up white plates, cut a patterned piece of craft paper to size, lay it on top of a basic white plate for use as a charger and then layer a clear glass plate on top of it.
This bar area features custom cabinetry, accented with warm fixtures and natural light windows. Glass-front transom cabinets break up the all-wood walls and decorative plates line the top of mirrored backsplash.
Enjoy your cabin days in style! This cozy cabin features country white wall paneling and cabinet doors in the bathroom and red toile fabric for the adjoining bedroom. The folding shutter window dressing and decorative plate wall art add charisma and charm to an already adorable palette.
This master bedroom opens up to the en suite but still feels private thanks to a dividing wall and offset entry. The white faux fur throw softens sharp lines and brown tones in the contemporary design. A wallpapered built-in bookshelf highlights quirky decorative plates.
Wood shelves compliment the natural wood look of the coffee table centered in this living room. White woven chairs and a long, rectangular fireplace face into the table over a textured rug. A floor cushion, floor lamp and decorative plate catch the light and add metallic accents throughout the room.
Long, slender windows frame the corner of this midcentury modern kitchen. Sleek, wooden cabinets feature stainless steel cornered handles and frosted glass accent doors. The neutral color scheme is livened by a simple and tasteful display of matching mauve dishes, tea set, vases and decorative plate.
Soft teal walls create a great contrast against the curtains made from bright coral fabric for a color palette that's not typical for a little girl's room. Decorative plates match the mirror's cutout above the bookshelf. A white armchair and white wicker ottoman provide a comfortable place to read.
Don’t hide your collection of decorative plates. If you have a collection of cookware, pull the pieces out and let everyone see and enjoy them. Stephanie Andrews of Atlanta-based Balance Design showcased her client’s collection in this designer kitchen. “The blue and white pottery is not expensive, but it made an impact when there is a collection of it,” Andrews says.
