More on Making the Perfect Bed

Danielle Rollins

 A wicker bed tray is a great addition to the perfect bed. This wicker tray is from Danielle Rollins' online shop and is shown above in her former Buckhead Atlanta bedroom. She has recently moved into a newly restored home in Palm Beach.

For those who are not fans of eating in bed, a bed tray also is wonderfully useful for magazines, mail, or a mini desk with so many working from home now. A quick search turned up many new and vintage wicker versions - there are lot of vintage ones on eBay and Etsy starting at around $60 that could even be spray painted - coral pink, emerald green, or navy blue would all be fun. I have also seen them used on sofas as a little mini work station.

I was at HomeGoods in Sarasota the other day while my pups were at the groomers and remembered their excellent bedding department where I have found Matouk, Frette, and Pratesi. I scored a beautiful set of Italian cotton sheets in white embroidered in navy that retail for $600 for $80 as well as a lovely summer weight goose down comforter perfect for here.


  1. LOVE that headboard and the trey is pretty terrific, too.

    I use my bed trey for all sorts of things other than "dining"--writing cards, paying bills, conference calls where I need to take notes, propping my laptop when watching videos, playing chess, cards and scrabble...on and on. Our simple bamboo trays fold too, which makes them easy to store away neatly when not in use.

    Next, I really want some folding bamboo TV trays.

  2. This is SO pretty! I have to confess that I'm in love with almost anything coral and/or pink. And that headboard! I love it! Is it from Danielle Rollins' shop too? Thank you, Beth, for this pretty coral and pink post.

    1. The canopy bed on top is on sale from her Atlanta home for $16,000.

  3. Frette at Homegoods!?! I want some!🤗
