This was to be a interior design post all about the different things you can hang on your walls. I was going to start with plates, but I got totally carried away, and I’m now delivering to you a whole blog post on plates… whoops. I had no idea how many creatively designed, extraordinary plates there were available, so I just have to share a few of my favorites.

You can be sure that when you pull these out of the cupboard at dinner time, everyone is going to be surprised. And if you’re looking for a gift, there’s something for every personality…
For the Traveller
Map fanatics everywhere need to get their hands on the ‘City on a Plate’ collection by notNeutral. There are multiple cities to choose from other than classics like London and New York, and I love that some of the smaller cities like Austin make the cut. I’ve picked Seattle, Washington DC and Chicago to feature because they’re all cities I would love to visit and haven’t yet managed to yet. I’m thinking about making a dinnerware bucket list…
For the Casual Comedian
I was excited to find these plates by British designer Jimbobart available in the US, partly because I think they’re awesome. I’m also hope featuring them will remind my dear friend Max Halley that he needs to go to the post office and send a limited edition Jimbobart plate (only available at Max’s Sandwich Shop in London). If you’re in London, go get an epic sandwich. If you’re not, but you love good food, ducks and foul language, I highly recommend following @lunchluncheon on Instagram. You’re welcome Max… where’s my plate?
For the Fashion Lover
Who knew the eccentric french fashion designer Christian Lacroix had branched out into homeware? Amazing.
The Christian Lacroix brand subsists through timeless values. The result is a fabulous and richly entwined universe, which can be continually reinterpreted, re-mixed and illuminated. (christian-lacroix.com)
I was just going to say these plates are really pretty, but – what he said.
For the Sci-Fi Geek
These Star Wars dessert plates are an absolute bargain, and come as a set of four – sorry Luc Skywalker, I didn’t have space for you. Despite their price, don’t underestimate how cool these plates would look on your wall, I love the monochrome simple design. Of course they’re good for cake too.
One for the Kids
These melamine delights from designer Jackie Shapiro are adorable, and I know my daughter Elsie will think they are totally cool. I love that each band member comes complete with their own instrument, and what kid won’t enjoy those bold colors? Bring out your kids’ inner musician, and dish them up some nuggets on these beauts…

I like than anyone likes plates like I do. I love old antique plates as well. I buy only all white, classic dinnerware so I can mix it up with pretty plates that I find and pick up later. I can mix it all together.

Some of these collections you can get as full sets but I agree, an accent amongst simple white is all you need!

These are really different. I could see these as really great for dinner parties. All of them are too cute.
