I first came upon Mary Carol's style in her book Feather Your Nest. It was there that my style crush began! I absolutely fell in love with her decorating style and her use of everyday serving pieces to create jaw dropping vignette's. Lucky for me, she has a Facebook account where I can get my fix of all things Nell Hill!
The base for many of her vignette's are tray's of all sizes shapes and textures.
Here she uses both a silver tray and a rustic wicker tray in a place setting.
Bathrooms are another area where a tray can come in as a handy decorating tool. Bath salts and oil's in pretty glass container's, rolls of fresh white towels, fresh flower's and a pretty candelabra on a silver tray create a relaxing oasis.
A tray is used as a flat surface to hold glasses transforming this tufted ottoman into a coffee table.

Again, more than one tray is used in this vignette. In the living room, a tiered porcelain tray placed on top of a black tole serving tray showcases a pretty collection of antique pill boxes.
I dream one day of going to Kansas City to visit her flagship store Nell Hill's and tour her beautiful home during her tri annual Open House.
Have you been to Nell Hill's?
