Norman Rockwell collectable plates are part of this phenomenon and feature the paintings of Norman Rockwell. As well as providing a stunning decorative object that is in a compact size, the Norman Rockwell collector plates give you a chance to enjoy some of the beautiful paintings created by a talented artist in a way that becomes its own work of art.

Displaying these plates, either singly or as part of a more extensive display, may become a difficult problem to overcome, particularly as the collection grows. The problem of where it may be displayed and how many of the collection, let alone exactly which ones should be displayed, will have to be overcome on a daily basis. If there is not enough room on the walls, a display case that has been especially designed for showing plates might have to be bought.

The Norman Rockwell plates have been released in small collections giving collectors the opportunity to purchase a single theme, a single style or to mix and match as they see fit. Some collectors may simply decide to collect plates based on the company that produced the plate. Some examples include the collections from The Bradford Exchange, Heritage House, Gorham or The Danbury Mint to name just four.

It is possible to spend a lifetime collecting Norman Rockwell plates and not come anywhere close to completing it. A wise move would be to pick an area to specialize in and complete this collection before moving on to another.

As well as the pleasure they will bring as collectable objects they also make terrific wall decor ideas.

Wall Decor Ideas – Collectors Plates

While some people have a natural knack for decorating their homes, others struggle mightily when it comes to making their house look like more than a jumble of assorted items.  Certainly it is important for a home to be functional, but taking the way things look into account is also very important.  Having a well designed decor theme can go a long way to making your house feel more "homey".

Even people who are natually talented at putting together a nice looking room sometimes find themselves struggling when it comes to decorating their walls.  Often they feel trapped into just using the standard framed prints that adorn the walls of almost every other house in the neighborhood.  There are some other options to consider if you are looking for a way to show what your real interests are and break away from the old standards.

One simple thing that you can do is to choose wall art that follows one particular theme that ties in with the room.  Rather than just sticking up the old standard still life images of fruit in a basket, perhaps you might want to consider a jungle or savanna theme that can be used throughout the entire room.  Another idea is to choose a favorite style and running with it.  The art deco style of the late twenties and early thirties is a popular way to accomplish this.

Still another option is to incorporate a collection you already have into the overall design of a room.  Collectors of decorative plates sometimes build a room around a personal favorite.  If you collect Norman Rockwell plates, consider mounting these around a doorway.  Tied together with other Rockwell Americana items, this can give a room a very inviting feel that harkens back to a simpler time.

Whatever you choose to use for your home wall decor, do not be afraid to think outside of the box.  You may decide to change things up from time to time, but try seeing each room in your home as a little extension of what really interests you.  Before you know it, you will find that your home decor has become more interesting to you and your guests!
