Decorating With Trays

The Pineapple Girls love trays. They are functional, and great for organizing personal objects but can also add a nice pop of color and style to a space.

There are so many options for tray decor. We love them on a coffee table, a bedside table or even in your foyer by the entrance to your home.  A great way to reduce clutter, trays are perfect for storing magazines, keys and small decorative objects.

aerin-lifestyle-framesUtilizing an ottoman instead of a coffee table is very popular, but where do you put your drink?  A beautiful tray does the trick!

Trays can also be used for serving at a casual or formal gathering. A stylish tray can can serve as a quick and portable bar, just by adding some cute beverage napkins, a bottle of wine and cocktail glasses.

We adore these printed trays by one of our favorite brands, AERIN.  Aerin Lauder is a granddaughter of Estée Lauder. Aerin spent 25 years working for the family beauty business before introducing Aerin, her own beauty, home and luxury lifestyle label, in 2012. Her products are true luxury, and we love having them as part of our collection.

The fresh color palette is white with sea glass and gray accents, which is carried throughout the entire home. The living room decor includes Lee Industries upholstered furniture and AERIN table lamps. The clear, lucite coffee table makes the space feel open and doesn’t distract from the elegant fireplace.

We partnered with Sebastian Smallegange of Turtle Beach Construction to create this captivating space with intricate ceiling detail and ship lap  walls . A custom designed barn-style door features thick glass and chunky nickel hardware on a sliding track. Using glass allowed for unobscured view of the river. The sea glass accents add soft and soothing color. We placed our popular Brahms Mount cotton throws throughout the home.

How To Choose The Perfect Chandelier

The right lighting can completely transform a room and the Pineapple Girls love a great statement chandelier! When choosing a fixture, first think about what type of look you are going for in the space.  Do you want to create casual elegance?  An organic, coastal look? Or perhaps you are going for something very modern.

There are so many great options. The Modern Farmhouse look is definitely trending. We love this look, mixing rustic with clean, modern lines. The chandelier below would look great with a distressed farmhouse table in a dining room.   Add some contemporary upholstered seating to complete the look.

Beaded chandeliers are also extremely popular.  The beads can create a calming, spa feel in your bedroom or bathroom.  The hemp on the chandelier below creates a more casual look so you can use the piece in other spaces than the dining room.

Tips for hanging your chandelier:

  1. When you are ready to hang your chandelier, do not skimp on the time it takes to do the job right. It should be held securely in place with the proper fasteners. Hire a professional to make sure the job is done correctly.
  2. When hanging a chandelier make sure it is at least 48” from all the walls to avoid overwhelming a small room.
  3. Chandeliers have lots of bulbs. Make sure to use low watt bulbs to avoid both excessive heat and glare. Add a dimmer switch to add mood lighting to any room.
  4. In order to guarantee that the view of dinner guests is not blocked unnecessarily, hang your chandelier approximately 30”-34” above the table
  5. A chandelier should be in proportion to table it hangs over, keep the width to around 12 inches narrower than table should do the trick.
