home: trend [ decorative plates ]
For creating a beautiful unique dining table or alternatively to be hung as art on the walls. There’s a huge array of decorative plates to choose from – patterns, styles, colours, designs, and illustrations galore.
This can create such a special look for dining. Layer up plates of design and colour to compliment napkins and clothes to create a table that almost tells a story.
For a wall display, go eclectic with a clash of patterns and designs. Or for a more minimal look mix the odd detailed design or illustration with plain colours and block patterns – this in all monochrome would be a perfect look.
