Lately I've been a little obsessed with cafeteria trays. They are fun, graphic and can be used in a variety of ways. Like the cafeteria tray decor in Lemonade, a hot lunch spot in Beverly Hills, California featured on the green living blog Daily Danny. Besides the colorful tray arrangement, Lemonade also uses Dixie cups as ceiling decoration. Ok, so I know mounted cafeteria trays and Dixie cups may be a little much for the average kitchen, but it's fun to think outside of the box. Repetition of simple designs can make a big statement in your home or business. Don't be afraid to play with materials and allow yourself to have fun. I'm continually reminding myself of this especially when stumped with a design dilemma. Great ideas come from playing and utilizing your childhood imagination!
