Our Favourite: Trays

Rather like a good tea towel, a tray can be a purchase that lets you bring a bit of bold patterning, or bright splash of colour to a room, without going ‘all in’ by affixing it to your walls or shelling out for a statement piece of furniture.  Much as I love colourful decor, I’m a nervous Nellie when it comes to colour in my own home, so moveable items are ideal for dipping my toe in the waters of patterns and frivolity (plus they can be moved inside a cupboard if you really don’t get on with them…)

The most useful tray purchases for my house have been two small vintage trays from Etsy.

Small tray

My favourite is this one which is used for the salt, pepper and condiments that I use frequently in the kitchen.   Not only does it look pretty, is has  the added benefit of making an unruly collection of objects look tidy and smart.
