Daydreaming: tray chic

Even as I enjoy some of my favorite bits of summer: tomatoes, crickets chirping, and heat waves that call for ice cream, I can't help but begin adding layers back into my home. While Summer calls for clean, open spaces, the coming of Autumn calls for texture and color. One of my favorite ways to add a bit of texture to any flat surface is by using a tray underneath objects. I've already added one under my flowers on the kitchen table (photos soon!) and it led me to search for a collection of trays that could add more warmth to my spaces. Which one is your favorite?

trays found at: ethanollie, heath ceramics, rare device, crate and barrel, horne, IKEA, pod, and cottage farm.
