Platter Collection

Hello everyone!

This week has been a crazy one!  I've been getting my son ready to go back to school and he is now already on his second day back.  There was shopping to be done, lunch food to be planned and supplies to be labeled.  There was an open house to meet his teachers and find his classrooms.  I'm SO glad that this week is over and now things can begin to fall in place easier next week.  

I wanted to share another "tweak" I did on a wall in my foyer.  You may recall I only had a couple of platters hung, but decided to expand on that on this wall. 


I opted for some different shapes to make it more interesting too. 



This wall has always given me fits because it's in a narrow space and a door opens into it.  So, I'm limited on what I can put here. 


But, I'm liking the grouping of platters for their pleasing shape alone.


I already had these, so I didn't have to purchase any either.

I added some more of my vintage leather books in my foyer too.  Remember I took them out of my secretary recently.


I'm liking the warmth of the leather against the pale blue chest.
And of course, a little candle light never hurt either!


We have been getting some much needed rain lately too.  I hear it thundering off in the distance right now.  Everything was so dry here this week, so I'm thankful for the rain (for a change).

Hope you all are having a good Friday so far and have a nice weekend planned.  We may try to go see that new movie, called Into the Storm that just came out today. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Decor Steals had white platters yesterday - where these from there?

I see they aren't showing today.

That look is perfect in your hall there - hope no one's shoulder bumps them - I could never trust my family with them. : - )

Have a great weekend.

Lovely considered home, sadly it will require a lot of baby proofing. Love the light and volume of the space. Thanks for the peak inside this home.

I love the look of all the platters on the wall! You have some pretty ones too. I'm also still loving the lamp on the blue chest. I bet you're glad the first week of school is over. It's always the most stressful with all the open houses, etc. Oh, by the way, I watched the movie "Labor Day" on netflix last night and loved it! Thanks again for the recommendation!

Luv the platters on the wall Kelly. Beautiful shapes!
S I type we are getting some loud rain as well. a desperate need as we have had none in over a week.
Relishing the sound of the thunder crashing over head.
Happy weekend.
Hugs, Gee

You can never have too many pretty platters. I have quite a few white ones and use them as trays in several different spots. I'd put them on the wall if I had a spot. :)

You know I'm crazy about white, especially ironstone. Love the way you are using these pieces for wall art.
We soooo need the rain.

Have a great weekend.

The platter wall looks great Kelly. I remember what it was like when school started, having 4 boys. I remember loving it when school ended for the summer, because the crazy schedules ended. I also remember how happy I was when school started again, so there would be some structure...lol.

I've got a few places in my house that give me fits. I think you figured out a great solution for yours. It looks terrific! And before I read what you wrote, I was thinking how fabulous the brown books look on your blue chest.

Your platters look sooo good in the hallway, and I'm loving your old books on the chest. Hope you get a little time to relax this weekend.

Hi Kelly...I love platters hung on a wall and yours are lovely...great shapes...I have them hung all over including on my kitchen windows...a little strange but I think they look great.

Your platters have very interesting shapes Kelly, and putting them on the wall is brilliant!

Becca said...

Love the platters hung on your wall! (I have, and just hung, the very same platter on the bottom right in our dining room). I love that you used different shapes, too! I hope your kiddo has a great school year!

Gigi Harlan said...

I love your decorating style! The platters look perfect in the hallway. I like that they are all white and soothing to the eye. Your pale blue desk has an amazing patina, love it!
