I've been collecting random plates since I moved into my current apartment (about 2 years now). I hunted through antique shops, flea markets and even my grandma's closet to put together a great collection. But, the arrangement didn't look right until I found the squared blue one (bottom right corner) at Pottery Barn. While I intended to use all antique plates, the new plate was just the right touch.
An awkward analogy, I know, but the antique plates could represent traditional PR methods while the Pottery Barn plate is the new tool that compliments the others.
I'm loving my new collection!
