Arranging and hanging plates on a wall is another way to add color, texture and pattern to a space. Traditionally this was done in a dining room or a breakfast area. Now they can be found in every sort of room and bring a distinct element whatever the design style. What I particularly like about the grouping above is the diamond shape formed by the arrangement.
John Derian looks perfectly at home here.
And then...a rather unusual and highly creative use for plates. As part of the Lantern Festival at the Missouri Botanical Garden, these matching dragons caught my eye. Large, colorful and spewing smoke they were very impressive.
