Styling with Trays
The humble tray has evolved from being a functional piece that acts mainly as a serving tray for those wonderful breakfasts in bed, to a key decor essential. It's gained reputation over the years in the styling department as being an organisation piece for accessories and platform for showcasing stylish interior.

For homes with table consoles situated by the front door, make a lasting first impression with our Terracotta Tray that's available in gold and silver. It'll subtly accentuate your decorative pieces, and would look stunning amongst different sized ornaments. A small dish or vessel like the Mug Tail are also pieces you could use to place keys and knick-knacks. Other decorative jars you could use should be placed in varying heights to give your console personality, like our Imperial Tribute Jar that's an easy piece that will compliment any table top.
Coffee tables, ottomans and side tables are also wonderful spots to place your decorative tray. They're practical, easy to style and ties in all your decorative elements in one spot where you and guests will be lounging in most of the time. Try using our Sleeker Tray paired up with different sized terrariums to breathe life into your living room.
A centrepiece on the dining table is another great spot for decorative trays. Place a dramatic floral arrangement or ambient dining candles like the Canterbury Candleholders for a stylish entertaining set up. If you have a timber dining table, rock the Modern Scandinavian trend with our Cluster Home Geometric Marble Board as a platform for your table accessories.
On one of our older blog posts, we explored styling bathrooms with plants (refresh your memory on our previous post here). Add a decorative tray right by your plants or as a base for your vase and keep your daily cleansing routine neat and clutter free.
With its organisational characteristics, it's no wonder decorative trays are making their way into hearts of many home owners. Get tray styling and see your table tops and lounge spaces transform into a magazine worthy corner. Happy decorating!
