{décor inspiration: tray chic}

venetian-mirror-vanity

. . . at this moment, there are perfume bottles scattered prettily about everywhere -- on the dresser, on the vanity, even on the desk, amongst pretty notepaper and fountain pens . . . and have always loved the way a simple tray, whether square or circular, gold or silver, can transform a few pretty bottles into a beautiful display; add venetian glass and deep emerald & onyx-hued marble, a bouquet of delicate peonies, and what could be lovelier?

{p.s.} another way to display perfume collections

I totally agree! A simple tray can have so much style. I love silver ones that are a bit tarnished and vintage looking!

I agree - a tray can add a touch of glamour to your space. I have a mirrored one that holds my perfumes, wedding rings and a few other trinkets.

Another great idea- finding vintage perfume bottles from antique stores! The hunt is just as fun as the catch!
