Styling a Tray

I am working on a Chalkboard Project involving a tray and when I went to photograph it, I stumbled into a bit of a block—I had trouble styling it. I looked around for some inspiration images and found two good resources here and here, but I wanted more! So I scoured my collection of decorating magazines and wanted to share the best of what I found, just in case you want to do your own tray styling.

The ingredients are often very simple: vases (made special with pretty arrangements), stacks of books, and a unique object or two. You can keep it simple or layer lots of objects—either way, trays are a great way to create a little spot of design goodness in your home.

Looking for the perfect tray for yourself? Some great resources are West Elm (love the laquer!), Jayson Home & Garden (for a unique or vintage feel), Horne (for something natural), CB2 (if you are looking for a clear alternative), and Pier 1 for something with an imported feel. Happy shopping and styling!
