If I was to say that I own ‘a few’ trays. That would be putting it mildly. Whether I am decorating a home or staging a vacant home trays are always in my game plan.

If I was to come into your home for a Home Staging Consultation or a Redesign Consultation you would probably hear me say “do you have any trays?”

I use them everywhere.

In kitchens:





On coffee tables:






On ottomans:





In Offices:



Even in bathrooms:





Trays pull things together so it doesn’t look like random accessorizing. They also add interest and character. If you don’t own any trays keep your eyes open for large ones, small ones, rectangle and round. Wood, metal, wicker it doesn’t matter. Brown, silver, or turquoise…have fun with it and start experimenting.
