Megan’s inspiring plate wall
Megan went beyond the norm of prints and framed photos for personalizing her living room wall. Instead, she opted to showcase her growing plate collection — a much better approach than buying a poster or two and keeping this gorgeous set gathering dust somewhere.
Her collection stems from a fascination with vintage kitchen items, especially since seeing a Cathrineholm bowl advertised on TV.
“The simple illustration and ascetics screamed ‘Own me!’,” she said. “I can find them online, but I do so much thrifting that my biggest dream would be to find one on my own. So naturally, I started respecting other designers from the era and coming across some fantastic plates on my excursions. Now I’m a big fan of Most Danish, Dutch or Scandinavian designs for their simple forms and lovely storytelling, but I also adore American names like Franciscan, Eames, Royal China…pretty much anything that has a strong graphic nature.”
“This is just the beginning…I want my wall to build slowly, like a relationship.”
