Trend Alert: Mix-and-Match Wall-Hung Plates – Remodelista

Hanging plates on the wall en masse is already a fairly established design trend, but recently we’ve been taking note of a more eclectic approach by way of mix-and-match styles paired together. As opposed to a group of plates by the same ceramicist or in the same color and pattern, designers and the design-minded are mixing styles from Delft, landscapes, Portuguese, French, English and folk origins. Here are our favorite examples.
