Chevron Chic

The design world is crazy for chevron...and we have to agree.  Chevron is tres chic.  Whether in a bold black & white or a subtle natural & white, we love the look.

We always have exceptional options of chevron area rugs at Post & Gray.  And this weekend we are offering 10% off all in-stock rugs.  So, envision a little chevron spicing up your home.

Here are some inspirational images we've found to get you dreaming of chevron.

Refresh + Renew

We've been doing a little early spring cleaning at the shop this week.  Re-arranging, refreshing, re-purposing.  It feels good to take a fresh look at our merchandise.  We know the same thing is true with our homes and yours. 

Doesn't it feel good to refresh your space from time-to-time?

We wanted to share a few insights we learned as we simplified and streamlined.  We thought these ideas might just benefit you as well.

Here are a few things we discovered in our Post & Gray makeover...

GROUPINGS are a great solution for de-cluttering.

We grouped our sleek green stools for visual impact and interest.  It also shows the strength of one great pop of color against a neutral back-drop.

We also grouped several different upholstered chairs, mixing styles...creating a cozy conversation area.

NEUTRALS always work, especially when you layer with textures.


Neutrals are always right, especially when you mix-in rich textures, like sisal, seagrass, linen, cowhide, wood, marble, glass...and a little pop of color.

And lastly,

RE-PURPOSING is the perfect way to create a fresh look.

This stunning black pedestal table was hiding behind lots of stuff, but when we brought it out in the open and paired it with these beautiful cane chairs...suddenly, the table had new purpose.  Now it serves as a sweet cafe table.  Of course, it would also be a striking statement piece in a foyer...or work as an end table next to your favorite upholstered sofa or chair....a nightstand next to your bed...  The options are endless.
We're sure you have a few pieces in your home that could use a little re-arranging and refreshing.  We hope these ideas have inspired you to do a little spring cleaning and re-purposing as well.
Come on in for a visit and see our fresh new space.  There's always something new at Post & Gray.

Styling + Cocktails

We've been in the mood for mixing things up. Immersed in Valentine's mode.
Obsessed with pink & red...and creating romantic ambiance.

 Of course we've been perusing pinterest for beautiful ideas & inspiration. 
So this week we decided to do a little cocktail table styling with our
great selection of home accent options at Post & Gray

Here's a sneak peek at some of our stylings...


What a difference fresh flowers and candles make?
We picked-up these gorgeous Spring tulips and hyacinth from Trader Joe's.
