Indisputable fact: "Old" has become the new "new." And no, we're not talking about the influx of TV reboots that have hit streaming platforms this year. We're talking about the stylish, throwback decor that even celebrities are starting to get behind.

The interior design trend in question? Kitchen plate walls—a vintage design where people would mount their best plates on the walls of their kitchen and dining room. You've most likely spotted the elegant style in a random 1950s flick, but more than six decades later, the old-fashioned trend is re-emerging with a modern twist. And we definitely feel inspired.

As for why it's making a comeback, DIY-guru Emily Henderson explained, “It really toes the line between modern and cozy traditional. I think that’s why it’s so visually stimulating. But having those colorful, playful plates (and other dinnerware) really helps to balance the modern lines/elements and makes it a kitchen I desperately want to be in!”

Earlier this year, actress Gwyneth Paltrow showed us how it's done with her farmhouse-inspired kitchen wall, featuring a huge plate rack with stunning Hermès dishes from the Bleus d'Ailleurs collection. The display seamlessly blends the old with the new, offering a clean and elegant, yet timeless look.

(Psst, you can shop similar plates with the Neiman Marcus Assorted Blue-and-White Dinner Plate Set ($275), the Old Havana Bread Plate Set ($48) and the Kiaan Appetizer Plate Set ($24).

And of course, we can't forget about Kris Jenner's massive dinnerware collection, which she turned into an entire dish room. (Yes, you read that right.)

The miniature museum features a variety of rare, ornate table sets that Jenner has collected over the years, from printed plates and serving platters to teacups and matching saucers. If you're feeling inspired to build a dish room of your own, you can start with this gorgeous Garden Grove 5-Piece Place Setting, now available at Bed Bath & Beyond for $120.

Excuse us while we go upgrade our kitchen decor.
