Inspired by Charles Faudree

 Charles Faudree is one of my favorite designers. I love the way he displays plates on walls and I have been contemplating weather or not to add some around the mirror in my dining room. Here's some of my inspiration pics....

 With the help of Nancy from the blog Nancy's Daily Dish this is what we came up with.

 I have two more saucers that I am going to hang that I already had, I just have to make a trip to Hobby Lobby to get the disks to hang them. I just couldn't wait to show you guy's how they look!
 Here's a close up.
  Nancy is so sweet and didn't hesitate to help me when I asked her.  Her Etsy shop is amazing, she has such a large collection of transferware I wouldn't know where to begin. So I sent her a picture of my wall and she made a few different displays for me.
 I love the look it gave this room! Thank you Nancy for all your help. Anyone who's looking to buy transferware Nancy's the lady to see!
               Thanks so much for stopping by!

I LOVE Charles Faudree! I have almost all his books (along with Betty Lou Philips too, lol). And I LOVE your new wall display! There is just something elegant yet warm and beautiful about plates hung! And yours look wonderful! :)

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

That looks great, Martina! Just the right amount. I love the inspiration picture with the plates on that narrow slice of wall. Such a perfect little area he did there. Nancy is wonderful! I have purchased a few brown and white transferware pieces from her and she is just the nicest person. I'm not surprised she helped you come up with a lay-out. This lady knows how to hang plates!

Shelia said...

I just adore this, Martina! Wonderful look and that Charles Faudree's style is so beautiful. How nice of Nancy to help you too. I have a similar look in my dining room with plates all around my olden mirror! Enjoy your new look.
Be a sweetie,
shelia ;)

Debra@CommonGround said...

This is gorgeous! Love how you used Faudree as a guide to this display. And how wonderful that Nancy was able to help you with what you needed. Turned out really pretty!

I adore transferware, and your wall turned out so nicely! I just found some red transferware (Johnson Bros, Castles of England) at Home Sense (Canadian version of Home Goods) and bought the whole lot-I was so excited! I plan to show it on my blog in my next post =)

Love the look of the plates, and they can be switched out with different colors as your taste or the Season change. Great inspiration:)

Looks like plates/ dishes on the wall is the rage.. I remember those in my great grandmothers home . I guess everything old is new again- at some time.

your display is lovely as is, but I hope you won't mind me throwing in my 2 cents. Seems Charles' pictures show a lot of same color so I thought maybe you might add some flowers of the same color to the wreath. Just a thought. Thanks for letting us look!
