Plates on Walls = (Green) Granny Zone?
August 7, 2008
Here’s my confession: I have a soft spot for geriatric style. Big, costume jewelry brooches, diaphanous scarves tied in bows at my neck — you know the drill. So I gotta tell you, bar-none, I’m digging the plates-on-the-wall thing, like this:
Not only am I down with the vintage china (reuse, go!), I’m also a fan of the space-saving aspect: Truly, who says the owner of this little kitch can’t pull down one of those delicate saucers at teatime? Plus, the arrangement is so prim and yet so devil-may-care, it makes me want to go all Bloomsbury, all the time. But is it too Aunt Gladys? Is there a design principle that mandates at least one Sturgis commemorative plate per every ten dainty Belleek saucers? What’s your take?
