Trays are objects of beauty in their own right but also useful to group like items for a pleasing decor arrangement. A tray’s versatility makes them an excellent accessory for all rooms in a home, holding anything and everything! From kitchens and bars to bathrooms and coffee tables, a luxury tray can declutter and organise treasured objects, easy to reach items – as well as drinks and food. Read on to discover Forwood Design’s ideas to use luxury trays for a superior home decor.
Organise a space
Decorative trays are a powerhouse tool for organisation and decluttering. Remember that less is more, so avoid overfilling your tray.
Consider displaying a decorative tray in an entryway to hold keys and wallets – or on a vanity in your bedroom to keep makeup tidy. In an office, use it to organise pencils, pens and stamps. In a kitchen, to hold supplies or snacks. You can even place a tray in your living room to organise your remote controls, or as an impromptu table ontop of a footstool. The options are endless!
Boost your home decor
Trays are decorative accessories that make up the finishing details to your interior decor. Styling your decorative tray is a chance to showcase your taste and style, so use a tray that suits its purpose, complementing the items it displays.
When styling your tray, consider The Rule of Three – which is more a system interior designers use to pull accessories together in a way that makes sense. It follows the assumption that items arranged in odd numbers are more appealing and memorable than even-numbered groupings. To harness the power on a tray display, consider limiting yourself to three ‘footprints’ on top of it. For example, a stack of books, a flower arrangement and a candle or art d’objet – all of varying heights and of complementing colours and textures. Alternatively, consider the tray as only one footprint on a surface – a part of an eye-catching coffee table vignette, for example.
