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?
