Plates on the wall? It's a fingernails-on-the-blackboard style cringer to my eyes. And the imagery on those plates? Too cute for my taste. But I'll gladly take the fabulous chair and table.

Are you serious? It is very creative... and tongue in cheek for the rooster in the kitchen crowd. Not for me, though. How is that living room coming? I can't wait to see your fabulous creation!

Hmmm, I usually have an immediate love it/hate it reaction to these provacative posts of yours, but I'm sorta on the fence over this one. I think it's because I like so many of the other elements in the vignette-the wall colors, the chair...and I happen to like plates on the wall. But in this case, perhaps a bit too cutesy. Maybe different subject matter, Karly's horse for example or some gorgeous Missoni-esque colorful swirls???

And what's up with the lone rogue lemon? What's his raisin d'être?

Not my thing. What is up with the red one? No.

erin@designcrisis said...

Ditto nkp. I don't hate the idea, but I don't care for the design.

Missoni swirl plates! Now that is a genius idea.

Marija said...

I get the idea but it's sort of a big mess. Definitely no to the the feet/leggs/whatever plate . Creeps me out.

The Shiny Pebble - "The rooster in the kitchen crowd" - snort!

As for the living room, it's all done save for one throw pillow I'm waiting to go on sale and a cowhide rug I'm trying to convince my husband of.

I don't like plate walls. Too country. Has anyone every seen a modern plate wall??

Petra Voegtle said...

Hm, I actually don't like walls with plates but I like the plate on the table with the 2 feet - but that was not the question - wasn't it?

The Zhush said...

Thinking its all a bit coco loco...but I kinda dig the chicken feet plates on their own! dim sum anyone?

sarah, flourish design + style said...

Ha! I want a plate wall.. but I'm thinking not with a rooster- I do think you can make a modern one though..

My mother covers all her walls with plates, so naturally, I detest them....I associate it with clutter.

stagetecture said...

it took a minute to really see the rooster. Then I thought, plates on walls reminds me of 1950's era. I think maybe with a different pattern... or maybe not at all. It just looks like a mish mosh to me.

I could pass on the kitsch rooster plates, but I really love the colorways in this room. Someone is thinking outside the box.

love the concept, not digging the execution. I'm with erin and NKP.

also, they should stay far away from the wall

Jessica said...

I thinks it's totally fun and dorky and kinda impressive, but I wouldn't want it in my house

Scratching my head…and I just shampooed my hair last night.

In the 70's I attended many school fetes where we queued and paid to throw small wooden balls at bits of crockery just like this.

DREAMER'S DEN said...

not liking the execution or the subject.
but i kind of like the idea. kind of....

Nick Klaus said...

Aside from what looks like the most uncomfortable chair in the world, I'm not too keen on the plates. As an art piece, it's one of those things where the designer thinks that they are a lot more clever than they are. As a plate, it's just weird.

I finally decided my opinion about plates on a wall... Only in rooms where plates would normally be used, kitchen, dining room, breakfast nook. I cringe every time I see plates over a bed.

Oh, and birds creep me out, so this entire photo is a no-go for me.
