serving trays are pretty much the last thing i thought i’d ever blog about, because they are the most boring of the kitchen paraphernalia right? we could make a list i guess. anyway, these ones from svenskt tenn with original designs by architect josef frank are rad. i’m happy to know there are some seriously cool trays out there because i love using them myself – especially when making tea, let’s get our sophistication on. plus sometimes i just get tired of carrying three to four cups in my hands and nimbly avoiding bumping into things that are likely to cause a spill of precious brew.
i’m one of those heathens who never ever makes tea in a teapot. i even sometimes leave the tea bag in my cup while i’m drinking it (gasp!) it would probably make more sense to start making tea like a civilized person, as it would mean that i could have 2… maybe 3 cups at a time. this is a good plan.
as a kid, friends of my parents had the most beautiful mid-century modern house situated on a hilltop that overlooked a valley (all mountains and vineyards and awesomeness). but i didn’t care about the view, i was only interested in the house. it was a single storey design with split levels and low ceilings – made basically entirely out of wood and glass. each room was on a different level and my brother and i used to explore from the bedrooms at the top making our way down through the tv room, kitchen, dining room, formal living room and guest bedrooms at the bottom. it was magic. then they moved, sold the house and it got demolished. i think i cried the day i found out.
i just LOVE liivia’s photos. something incredibly comforting about them. she has great a knack for colour, too.
