"I picked this tray because its colour and style are so versatile. My interior is rather monochromatic, so I try to add some warmth and colour here and there. The tray’s bronze finish looks a bit vintage, and in our interior that adds a bit of texture and depth."
"We live in an apartment so I don’t have a lot of space to put a bigger item like this, so it usually ends up on our dining room table as a kind of center piece. It offers me a canvas to style in different ways time and again, as I follow the seasons and style it with whatever I have lying around that I think is pretty. An interior should reflect your personality, and as humour is really important to my family, I always like to try and find that very fine line between kitsch and cozy. But at the same time I always try to keep it elegant – and this tray certainly makes that easier for me!"
In summer, I used it to gather my favourite plants together, but when it gets darker out I like to use it to display a collection of candles and tea light holders: the light is reflected beautifully by the mirrored surface of the tray. I used a bunch of stuff that we found on walks in the forest to decorate it for fall, and I already came up with some ideas on how to decorate it for the holiday season. I’m going for a winter woodlands theme this year, as the bronze and brown hues satisfy my aesthetic needs, but it’s playful enough to involve my two-year-old daughter and get her interested in decorating, too.”
