After my previous post where I rounded up my favourite coffee table trays, which you can see here. I thought i’d follow up with a few inspirational images of well styled coffee tables featuring trays.
If you have a subscription to one of your favourite magazines, why not choose to display them instead of books, they work just as well.
The tray above also acts as a drip tray for burning candles, if you’re going to do this make sure the wax isn’t going to ruin the finish of the tray first.
Why not move the fruit bowl from the kitchen bench, who knows might encourage the kids (or yourself) the eat a little more fruit.
Small succulents, terrariums and domes help add a bit of life and greenery to the vignette, perfect if you don’t exactly have a green thumb.
A round tray will help soften a space, consider this if you find you have a lot of hard straight lines in your room.
A mirrored tray would help to reflect and bounce light about the space.
If you have an ottoman or trunk like above, you may not want to over style your tray, but take a more practical approach with perhaps just a couple of books and coasters, unless you have a side table handy to place mugs and drinking glasses.
An easy rule in creating a great vignette is to go monochrome (like above) or stick to 2-3 colours in your palette.
