Trend Forecast: COLOR! COLOR! COLOR!

We always love the ease and comfort of neutrals and naturals, but there is something to be said for going all-out BOLD with COLOR! And Spring and Summer are the perfect seasons to add brights to the mix. We fell in love with this colorful interior...

It works so well because the core pieces are great neutrals. Fresh white sofas, natural woods, layers of neutral texture...then the addition of COLOR. Vibrant, vivid tones in the statement art (see our post on that topic here) and accent pillows.  Of course, we noticed that we happen to have a lot of those items currently at Post & Gray if you wish to re-create this look.  Like these...

 Large, Colorful and Graphic Art

Green Glass Lamp

 Natural Pendant Light

Decorative Urns

Colorful, Patterned Pillows

Neutral Sofas, Sisal Rugs and Interesting Cocktail Tables

Unique Fresh and Colorful Elements

We were also inspired by other images of color we found this week...

Designer Feature: Mary McDonald

Since acclaimed Interior Designer Mary McDonald is the keynote speaker at this week's Mint Museum Room to Bloom symposium right here in Charlotte, we thought it was time to collect some inspirational design images of her work. 

Of course as we find swoon-worthy interiors, we like to show our clients how to "Get the Look" (for less).  Here's a few images that caught our attention as of late, all designed by Mary McDonald. ...

Aahh!! Restful, right? There's something about the blues.  And guess what? We have gorgeous draperies, mirrors, velvet ottomans, custom headboards and a pair of blue garden stools right here at Post & Gray. Take a peek at some of our blues...

... and how about rich, luxurious neutrals?  ...
...We especially love neutrals with lots of layers and great textures!...
Check-out those luxe upholstered headboards. We have custom headboards at P&G available for order in many different styles, sizes and finish details. We also have fabric, fabric, fabric, starting at just $10/yard.
We think texture is essential to any great space.  Here's one more lovely image of inspiration via Mary McDonald which encapsulates this philosophy ...
We love this fresh look with textured walls, lots of bright white and touches of gold in the mirror and pendant light.  See our take on Gold ...And take a look at a brand new chic white dresser (just in this past week), perfect for re-creating the look above...
...We are also fans of Mary McDonald's exquisite textiles.  We love the graphic and beautiful patterns...

You're sure to find some of her designs in our stacks of fabrics and also in the design studio of our own Kelley Vieregg (KVID).  Visit Kelley's new website to view her portfolio and learn about the exceptional design services available from KVID

DESIGN SERIES: Coastal Accents

Who doesn't love the concept of a getaway, especially one with ocean vistas, warm sun and sand in your toes?

It's been Spring Break around these parts so we're all craving a beach fix.  Of course, with our love for all things design, we translate our cravings into interiors. So, we've been on the look-out for coastal-inspired spaces. Think hints of the sea, like driftwood, white-wash, seagrass and natural textures. Think ocean hues like the blue-green of the water and the whites and neutrals of the shore.

Here are some images of inspiration to get you in the mood for adding some coastal accents of your own...

We love the simplicity of this composition...and crisp white + natural textures...

Fresh palm leaves + sea-colored glass are simple ways to add a beach-bungalow-feel.  See besostyle's take on "going coastal".  Great ideas to incorporate beach-inspired accents into your interiors.
