Talk of a plate mural, new rug, wedding picture preview

Let's talk about plates. I want to do a plate mural downstairs (either in the kitchen or family room). I'm thinking mixed prints and bright colors with no particular palette. Does anyone have plates hangin' on their walls? Where did you get yours? I fantasize about buying some from Anthropologie, but I already splurged there. (see purple doily rug below.)


For now I'll keep checking out local thrift stores. Here are some plate murals that I simply can't stop staring at.
