For most of us, buying art is no easy feat: It’s often expensive, and there’s pressure to choose pieces that are meaningful or that you wouldn’t eventually grow sick of. And while a well-curated gallery wall will never get old, there’s a different style of wall decor that we’re crushing on and it doesn’t come with the same stress. Let’s talk about the plate wall.
Whether you’re hanging one by itself or in a cluster, this nonfunctional use of the dinner plate evokes all the best traditional cottage vibes. The best part? Fancy plates you might never imagine buying in a full set can have a place in your home because you’ll need just one. And if you compare the price of a designer dinner plate to framed art, $150 doesn’t sound too bad.
