Working remotely might no longer be a daily routine, but it’s still important to make sure that home feels welcoming after a long day at the office. Sprucing up your living area doesn’t have to require a massive revamp; it could be as simple as elevating mealtimes with artisanal dinnerware or freshening up your room with some luxury candles.

One other fuss-free trick to brighten up your environment is to decorate it with aesthetic trinket trays. From placing your keys to holding your accessories, they are both versatile and add a beautiful touch to your space.

Whether for yourself or as a gift to a loved one, these options for trinket trays, dishes and coasters below will serve as the perfect addition to a home.

Burnt Olives

Burnt Olives’ trendy yet unique jewellery pieces are not the only items that will be catching your eye; their handmade homeware from trinket dishes to pill trays and coasters are equally as beautiful.

You’ll be spoiled for choice with the wide variety of designs and colors available. From terrazzo dusty pink and gold-dusted jewellery dishes to marbled and dinosaur-themed coasters, you won’t be able to just cart out one piece.

Jewellery dishes and pill trays are sealed with food-safe beeswax, whilst coasters are coated with heat-resistant resin, which allows you to use the products without worry. Prices range from around $22 to $40, with some of the pill trays being more expensive.

For now, you’ll only get to enjoy some sneak peeks of her upcoming trinket trays and dishes, which feature speckled designs with coral, blush and white shades.

You will also be glad to know that the products are water repellent and can be easily kept clean with a damp cloth and light detergent.
