Cool people are hanging plates on their wall again: here are some options to try, no matter what your style

It seems everything comes back into fashion eventually.

The gallery wall has many fans, but if you’re looking for a different way to adorn your walls, stylish people have started displaying their plates as wall art.

It’s certainly not a new idea. You might associate it with your grandparents’ home, and the trend has come and gone since at least the Victorian era. Everything truly does come back into fashion eventually.

As well as allowing you to display favourite pieces that may not get used very often, hanging plates on your wall is also a great way to add pattern and colour to your space. And while traditional china might be the first thing that comes to mind, the look can be brought up to date in a number of ways, from the plates that you choose, to the style of the room where they’re hung.

Here are some plates to match a variety of styles.

Whether you prefer delicate florals, delft-inspired designs or perhaps a Mediterranean style, there are plenty of traditions to draw from when planning a display of plates.

Earthy colours and repeating patterns are perfect for those looking for a way to veer the look away from any associations with fussiness, and towards something much more relaxed.

Pared-back
