As soon as our clear Acrylic Trays hit Australia, we were besotted by their stylish simplicity. To really test out their versatility, we challenged 5 favourite Aussie bloggers to style one each. Their vignettes blew us away!

Rachel from Melbourne-based boutique graphic design studio Miss Poppy Design transformed her acrylic tray into a glam desk organiser. These are her top tips for a stylish and functional tray:

– Include items of varying heights and keep the smaller items at the front 
– Stick to a single colour palette and experiment with textures
– Stack and layer items
– Keep it tidy and uncluttered

Melbourne-based graphic designer + blogger Amy Moss from Eat Drink Chic gave the tray a new purpose – as a fun-filled drinks station.

“I love mixing different materials when I style and, as the decor in our home is predominantly wood and ceramic, the clear acrylic adds a wonderful new element to the mix.”

Inspired by the “zen-like” simplicity of the tray, Melbourne stylist + photographer Cindy Chen opted to create a showcase of her current favourite collectables in a neutral colourway.

“The tray has a simple and minimalist design and it’s clean lines fits perfectly with my style aesthetics. Today I’m using it as a display tray to showcase my current mood — a neutral palette. This palette has easily become my absolute favourite to work with. So calming and still, it’s almost zen-like.”
