room service

“each room deserves dignity, respect and a healthy dose of laughter”
-domicilium decoratus, kelly wearstler
i have a unhealthy obsession with serving trays.

they’re a small and simple way to add a little spice to any room – and when you get tired of it, like throw pillows, you can get a new one!  and being the tea aficionado that i am, it’s also functional, keeping my cup of earl grey, my sunday new york times and an almond croissant all together.
this week, i’ve been swooning of this shiny gold tray by graham & green. the hand carved curves and worn gold are beautiful and something i think marie antoinette would have to carry her tea and colorful macaroons, don’t you?

and  as always, i thought i’d also share with you a few more of my favorite trays that i hope to decorate our home with in the near future. 🙂 we already have the mirrored tray from target and it is so chic…and so cheap! i have to pick up a few more.

1. customized lucite tray, iomoi
2. sky blue lacquer tray, holy mountain trading co.
3. mirror tray, target
4. faux croc nesting trays by kim seybert, multi chic

friends, what home decor items do you daydream of and have on your little wish list? I’m looking forward to hearing all  about them. 😉

  5. What darling picks! I’m looking for a perfect breakfast tray, but John is insisting it must have legs! As for other home goods I’m lusting after, I think a bar cart is in our future!

  7. We really need trays like this, right now we just scatter everything all over the living room floor – cups, newspapers, letters.. just a mess! I also really want to get some wall decals because our walls are looking really bare.
