Blue Plate Special

I have a thing for plates. All kinds of plates. I love how something so very basic and necessary can be transformed into a work of art. I like using plates in my design. Plates are relatively inexpensive, yet they can have a big impact on your space. They can serve as little pops of color on a bookshelf display or give texture and emphasis when grouped and hung on a wall. I also like a haphazard stack of plates on a table. I started my plate collection with blue transferware. I have since strayed to buying bits of everything that strikes my fancy and I love all of them. I was in a "blue" mood today, so here is some "blue plate" inspiration. Happy Monday!

Charles Faudree loves blue plates, too. This is one of his designs.

I love this old cabinet with chicken wire in this picture.
