When I first moved into my house I was so excited to start decorating. I have talked about the trials I have had with trying to incorporate my husbands furniture with my style before, so I won’t bore you with the details only tell you how I have semi-accomplished this – with small accessories in each room. Since the base of any house is centered around its furniture the vibe was already set – minimal, modern, masculine. I love these three interior styles but wanted my first home to be cozier. I have tried warming it up with rugs, art work, and lots of little accessories everywhere. One of the accessory solutions I used is adding trays. I have trays all over the house – living room, kitchen, office, bathroom and bedroom. They are the perfect way to decorate small spaces while keeping it contained and organized. I always see pictures of trays on Pinterest which inspire me to rearrange my own. I did this last night and played with a few different scenarios but ultimately snapped shots of this one. I pictured it in a bathroom, in-between the his and her sink. It has all of my necessities – champagne, perfume, candles, a ring holder, and a few bracelets.
While your tray can be filled with whatever you would like I would keep it simple and convenient. So if it is in your bedroom try to stock it with bedside table books, candle, hand lotion and your reading glasses. If it is in your office you can fill it with a cute pencil holder, a little bubbly for those tough days, notepads, and your business cards. Wherever you put your tray, the contents inside should be practical to the space.
