First up: Ceramic plate displays.
One of the great things about using plates as artwork is the versatility of them. For example, in the kitchen on the left, bold, bright, modern plates have been used to create a fresh, vibrant display which works well with the contemporary oak dining table and colourful storage pots. However on the right, antique china plates have been used to create a vintage, delicate feel which sit perfectly with the distressed wall and old chair.

Everyday coat-hangers have been used in this sitting room below to create a striking visual display of the owners collection of posters and art. I think this look great: original, personal and fun. You can also change the posters regularly to update it with the decor or your moods. Note, they have also made great use of the limited wall space where the stairs cut into the room.

The pictures below are really just a hodgepodge of things I've seen in the past couple of weeks that have really got my creative juices going. They don't have an over-riding theme as such, just prettily displayed objects that I love. The image on the left is a beautiful office space which has utilised the back wall for displaying both trinkets, clippings and pictures that the owner may need at hand whilst working. The image on the right shows a wooden crate being used to store china, an idea which I LOVE. Everything looks so pretty, but is so practical at the same time. The bottom left shows an image I found whilst browsing Decor8. Using pegs to hang photographs and flowers looks quirky and the pegs themselves become part of the artwork. I might use this idea to hang dried lavender in my bedroom. The bottom right shows how to integrate a vintage mirror collection into a wall display. I think the mirrors add an unusual element to the display and give the room a vintage feel.
