Favorite Room Feature: Ryland Woodard Interiors

Larvelies! Today I am sharing some serious eye candy from a serious designer in the RVA. Who might you ask? I am talking about Ryland Woodard Interiors. I will admit, there are times where I hate to see symmetry in a space. Hate it. It bores me. But this chick knows how to balance just right AND keep this girl interested with the perfect pops of color. I am talking a bright, inviting and cheerful space. What more can a girl ask for? This room is so fabulous that I might even be able to get over the fact that there is no TV in it for viewing. Yeah. That it's just that good. 

Greetings S + S readers! I am Ryland of RWID in Richmond, Va. I am so excited to be sharing one of my favorite rooms with you all today.

This is a living room I did for a client a few years ago and it is still one of my favorites. One of my favorite things about this room is that there is a great mix between neutral and bold colors. I love that most of the larger pieces are in creams and tans and that you have these pops of beautiful color that get your attention- but in a pretty way. This living room to me is elegant but at the same time you feel like you can curl up on the sofa and read a book. I have a strong feeling that every room in your house should be used- formal or casual. That is why I like to make rooms feel inviting and comfortable.

The antique mirrors were old windows from the late 1800's that had been mirrored and white washed. We had a faux painter add some gold to make them a little dressier....the stools were designed specifically for this room and can be used for seating as well.

Art is very important to me in a space. I really feel that it is the crowning of the room and it needs to be the perfect piece. You should not rush to find artwork just to fill a space. Look for that amazing piece that speaks to you - you will be glad you waited. I love the quietness of this painting. It is modern and pretty all at the same time.

The framed kimono is a family piece and one of my favorite pieces in the room. It adds so much interest and the colors tie everything together.

  2. This is a stunning room- elegant yet casual and not over-the-top formal. I love the pops of color in the throw pillows and the framed kimono. I, too, believe it is so important to wait for that perfect piece(s) of artwork for a space. Gorgeous mirrors! So much great natural light.
