How about a DRAGON?

If you are on our email list than this morning you saw our eflyer celebrating the Chinese New Year!  2012 is the Year of the Dragon. Dragons are considered very auspicious in Chinese mythology, and held in high esteem for their dignity and power. A unique addition to any décor style, a powerful dragon represents strength, success, and protection- and is even considered the bringer of joy!

For an interesting conversation piece, find an impressive carved ornament to hang from a cabinet door, or a small dragon trivet for a candle, plant or coffee cup. A carved black dragon plate could add drama to a boring wall, and a delicate white carved plate would make a stunning table center-piece.

Come find a dragon and add a touch of Asia to your home!

These items are available at Post & Gray!

2012 spring color report

Although spring feels far away with the cold weather taking over the east coast this weekend, we're thinking sunshine at Post & Gray. Here's a sneak peek at what to expect this spring from the latest fashion guru: Ralph Lauren, and color specialists: Pantone.

1. Pastels
2. Bright & Bold
3. Flirty and Floral

RL previewed his spring line this past fall with an emphasis on pastel, oversized, and easy going. We're hoping this trend is on point, as we'll be carrying this through into the furniture world with upholstered artistic headboards and chairs, as well as watercolor print pillows. Add an easy touch of color to any room.
