I have always loved trays! Not to serve tea or coffee. No I mean you can but I find them more interesting
to elegantly store and display all kinds of objects. They come in different shapes, styles and materials: wood,
woven, patterned, metal, so you can easily put them in any room.
I hope my pictures inspire you…
On a night stand, a tray can contain your lamp, reading glasses or an alarm clock.
Moreover, it makes your bedside table look more organized.
In the entrance, a tray on a console table can work
as a catch-all for your keys, spare change, sunglasses or your odds and ends.
A tray as a bathroom organizer! Why not? It immediately gives your bathroom a luxurious feel.
And what a beautiful way to showcase your perfume bottles, makeup and other toiletries.
Here a cheese platter works great to display my husband’s
perfume bottles, aftershave, and moisturizing creams.
In a powder room, you can stack your hand soap, hand lotion
and rolled towels in a tray. It will give your room a spa-inspired look.
In a kitchen, you can use a basket to have all your cooking essentials
within reach: kitchen utensils, salt and pepper shakers, oils and herbs.
Here I displayed coffee accessories on a marble tray which
gives the kitchen a very elegant and glamorous look!
In a living room, showcase a mix of your favorites in a tray and see how your
coffee table becomes a beautiful vignette.
If you have a neutral table, a colorful tray will inject a joyous addition to your room. Adding flowers
or a plant gives even more contrast and natural beauty.
A large empty dining table can look boring. Style it with a tray: a bunch of
flowers in a nice vase, a candle and a decorative trinket dish will instantly add
more glamour and personality to your table!
In an office, a tray will keep track of your office supplies and it
will make your working space pulled together.
You want to keep it classic, here is a tray for tea o’clock
that I have styled in my friend’s garden…
Yallah now get yourself a tray, display blooms, books, perfume bottles or towels and share!
I’d love to check if I’ve been a good teacher…
