MY TOP 10: SERVING TRAYS

This ultimate serving piece is a must in everybody's home. Besides giving a hand when entertaining or treating your honey to a delicious breakfast in bed, trays can become a nice finishing touch in your decor. When they're not busy carrying drinks, trays are wonderful pieces for accessorizing. I often use them as a frame for my vignettes, especially when stacking books and accessories on my accent tables. With a never-ending selection of shapes, styles and materials, we have plenty of trays to choose from. But if you need some help making a decision, here are 10 of my fab favorites as of lately. Which one do you fancy?

My top 10: Rockers

Did you know that some attribute the invention of the rocking chair to Benjamin Franklin? We may never know for sure since there is no historical evidence proving to that. Historians can only trace its origins to North America during the early 18th century, and in England in 1725. What started as an ordinary garden chair with two rockers at the bottom, the rocking chair has become a chic and versatile decorative element. Although it's often associated with maturity and class, the modern rocker appeals to everyone. The range of styles is huge, but here are some of my ultimate favorites that can absolutely rock your world.

White As a Feather

As our feathery friends start making their way back into our gardens, let's welcome them with these fun and stylish bird houses and feeders. They deserve a nice place to hang out while filling our terraces and backyards with sweet melodies. For sure, if I was lucky enough to have some outdoor space, a couple of these would be part of my decor. Although you can find them in different colors, I picked white — not just because I love everything white— but because their colorful plumes will stand out even more.

My top 10: Umbrella Stands

The forecast in New York calls for rain showers for most of this week, a sign Spring has finally arrived. So I thought this would be the perfect time to dedicate a post to my favorite umbrella stands. There's no need to have dripping and soggy parasols sitting by your entry door when you can find so many chic and fun stands out there. Besides adding character to your foyer, these containers will also help protect your beloved floors and keep them puddle-free. Any favorites?
