interior trend: loaded trays

I like to keep things as orderly as possible at home, which is not always easy when our flat is bursting at the seams with stuff (our cellar which used to hold 2 boxes, is now home to 302. It’s not pretty). One way to keep items organised is by the use of the humble tray. Once used to carry tea and biscuits into the sitting room on a Sunday afternoon, it is now seen featuring coffee table books, candles, flowers, liquor bottles, perfume and miscellaneous beauty ‘accoutrements’. Be they wooden, Lucite or metallic, trays are the perfect place to house bits and pieces that would otherwise be scattered around the room gathering dust. So tell me, lovely readers… are you on board with the tray trend?

    I’m so totally on board. I’ve got one on my coffee table (books/flowers), one on my dining table (candles/flowers), two in my dressing room (makeup/perfumes/jewelry) and one in my guest bedroom (towels/travel size toiletries).

    And I’ve just gone on Zara Home and ordered 2 more. Actually, I might possibly be addicted.

    Fantastic lineup – I’m desperate for a python tray and I want a lucite one too! Oh dear! lol xxx

    I absolutely don’t think it would be wrong to have some kind of tray action in every room… 😉

    Oh yes totally love trays for everything! I have the yellow square tray from West Elm and it’s perfect for the remotes and candles 🙂 Must try one for the bathroom.
    You have a lovely blog! x

    Love trays. But which one includes the force field against dust? #ifonly
