Displaying Black and White Plates..

I found these beautiful antique plates at an estate sale....

  The black and gray colors pool together looking like soft water colors...

I fell in love with them....
aren't they gorgeous?

  1. Great find! I love the photos shown too. Such great inspiration....

  2. Black and white is such a clean look. I love it. Can't wait to see where you hang your plates.

  3. I love black and white plates. They're not that common.

    I had a chance to visit Kelly McGuill's house and not only is it gorgeous, she is one of the nicest, giving people I've ever met.

  4. Black and white is a beatiful an look. I love it. Can't wait to see where you hang your plates.

  5. Lovely. I love the contrast and visual strength they have.

  6. The plates are beautiful!! I love that pattern in black and white, it looks so chic! Great find. And yes they'd look great in any of these rooms.

  7. Julie,
    I do love the plates, black and white are favorites, next to blue and white. There are a couple of rooms you've shared that I adore...the piano and framed items with the plates is my favorite. I hope you'll share where you end up displaying them, great find.

  8. They are so pretty, and I LOVE all of the rooms you showed, especially #2!

  9. Yes, I do like plates and yours are beautiful. Black and white makes a lovely change from the more common blue and white. I hope you show us once you've hung them. X Sharon

  10. ♥♥♥ them, black and white perfection. I love when plates are displayed on a wall with a frame around them. You found a real treasure!
    Happy Monday,

  11. We can see these displayed on a book shelf with some great black and white books - modern yet traditional. What a great find.

  12. Julie,

    Gorgeous plates! I really like your idea of displaying them in a black and white kitchen or space, although my inclination would not too much black so that the plates can be the stars of the show :-) I wonder how they'd look in a room with a pop of red, pink, turquoise or green?

    Sorry I've been "hiding" for a while. Been crazy busy with several large projects. Happy problem...


  13. they're great! love those documents framed with the plates! awesome.



  14. I certainly love having plates displayed/hanged on the wall! And I'm sure that you will find the right "spot"/wall for these lovely and decorative plates!

  25. I love black & white all the time, but the arrangement of black & white plates with the blue & white ones is so unexpected, and I love it!

    I love picking up pieces that I have no idea where they will end up, but I just find a home somewhere for them. It makes it even more personal sometimes.


  26. This is one heck of a beautiful post!! I love your plates...they are stunning. And yes love plates hung on a wall. You gave so many examples of how to use plates beautifully! Enjoy your Sunday.
