Trays are the perfect thing to add interest to a room. They help to anchor items in a room. If you read my post about Finding Your Decorating Style, you know that copying is key. Use what you have and play around with it. So fun!
Using trays on a desk, pretty but functional.
Perfect for you bedroom dresser.
Can hold perfumes, jewelry, and hubby's watch and wallet.
Trays in the bathroom. Warning: sinks/toilets can be dangerous.
Accidents can happen!
One item, different forms on the tray. Focal point behind.
Love for the coffee table or ottoman. Simple and relaxed.
Getting a little crazy...stand it up!
Stack more the one against a wall. Use different texture, color, and size of trays.
Add a bouquet and a candle in front of it.
My most favorite place to use a tray: by the kitchen stove.
Couldn't be more practical!
Found this oldie from our last place. Can you see the tray?
Two large plates behind, french press, plant, and our favorite, Splenda on the tray.
(So there's probably a few more ways to display trays but I'm running out of juice. Moving on!)
