Calm before the Storm

Its 6am.  I love this time of the morning.  Before I had Clay it was unheard of to be up or even awake before 7, but now, its the best time of the day!!!  I'm laying in my bed - which (hopefully) in the short term future will actually be where my kitchen island bench will be - looking out at a really sunny day!  The husbie has left for work a good hour ago and I still have another hour before hurricane Clayton is awake!  This time of year is always a bit crazy.  My mind is well and truly frazzled and I can't remember a thing.  I only remember what my phone tells me to remember.  So if you come and see me and I don't write down what I am going to do for - tell me to write it down.... Seriously!

Anyway - excuse the rambles... I wanted to show you a gorgeous little bathroom reno that is nearly done.  This house was purchased by a young family earlier this year. Designed in 1927 by the renowned architect E.P Trewern this house features some of the most divine coffered ceilings and detailed plaster ceilings I have seen in a long time!  I always say to my clients they should live in a house before they start to renovate, but with 2 little girls and 1 bathroom with no bath and the smallest little vanity, a bathroom reno was a bit of an immediate must.  As we had to keep the existing linen cupboard, we built the room out by 450mm into the neighbouring bedroom to accommodate a toilet and larger custom vanity.  This created so much space and allowed us to put a 1600 bath in and a separate shower.  We wanted to keep the traditional integrity of the building but bring it into the 21st century so we kept the VJs above the tile line and kept to a smaller bluestone mosaic on the floor to reference the original hexagonal mosaics.  With the shower screen and mirror to go in and a lick of paint to come - I still think this little bathroom is a family friendly stunner!

Time flies when you're having fun!

We have been busy bees in the world of Rylo!  Rylo Interiors and Rylo Building and Design have started to embark on really great projects.  Doing large renovations and new builds as well as our decorating jobs.  It has been over a year of massive projects and fun clients.

We have a new website - and we have updated our blog to help inspire me to keep blogging and keep you all up to date with what is going on at the moment in the world of Rylo.

Here are a few piccis of our big renovation on an late 1890's cottage in Camp Hill.  It is probably the best before and after we will ever have!  Ryan and I loved doing this gorgeous home and this is where we bought our little boy Clayton home from hospital to.  We are on to the next project now, but I still love this house so so much!  There are plenty more photos on our website!

Oh and welcome to Mr and Mrs Rylo!

May Already!?

It's May already..... That means a few things for us here at Rylo....

1. It means it has nearly been a year since I have blogged.
2. It means we now have a full building and renovating service available through Rylo Building and design...
3. It means we are adding the the Rylo Family this month!!

When you start a business you really have these grand ideas of all of the things that you are going to do for the business on a regular basis... Things such as blogging were right up there on my list of things to do.  Unfortunately, there aren't enough hours in the day to allow me to blog so I have been 'instagraming' and 'facebooking' when I can! This is so quick and easy, but unfortunately it means that the blog just slides way down the list of things to do...

There have been so many changes at Rylo in the past few months... I would be writing an essay if I went through all of them, but probably one of the biggest is the addition of Rylo Building and Design.  My husband Ryan is now a fully qualified builder and we have an incredible team of contractors at the ready to complete anything from a full new build to a simple renovation.  It is so exciting to be able to offer our clients a full service and we are hoping to have our newest project photographed and up on a new website soon.  So stay tuned!!!!

Another change to Rylo Interiors has been Angie....  Angie joined me at Rylo as my angel and offsider just before Christmas.  All of our regulars would know Angie by now, but if you haven't been in and met her yet please do!  She is fabulous!  Her eye for design and style is impeccable and I actually don't think I would survive without her....

Which leads me on to the final point...  Ryan and I are due to have a baby this month!  I will be taking a little time off, but I will always be contactable via email and Angie will be stalking me every day... So it will be business as usual here, but at home I will be learning how to be a mum, wife and business owner at the same time and trying to nail all three!!!

So please like us on Facebook and follow us on instagram for regular updates as the blog is going to once again be pushed down the list.

I can't thank all of my fabulous clients enough for all of their well wishes for our up coming addition to the Rylo Family!  We are so excited and the little man will be a regular in store... Cuddles are welcome!!

Cheap Holidays...

I have been so busy lately that all I seem to think about is going on an overseas trip... Europe in particular. Time seems to be getting the better of everyone at the moment so what better way to escape than in travel books, right?? We have recently had a delivery of French books at Rylo - 'At my French Table' and 'French Ties' by Jane Webster and 'Paris in Color'. These books will temporarily fulfil your dreams of going to Paris for the time being ....  As we get to dream about the food, the beautiful architecture, the fashion and the amazing colours that float through the city of love .... We're happy!!

Updates and Upcoming's!

I can not believe it is MAY!!!  Lots has happened at Rylo and I have been very selfish in not sharing any juicy details with you! So to give you an update from my last post which was too long ago I will start with the art exhibition...

Nadine Sawyer and Alexandra Ranken had an Art exhibition in the store and it was truly beautiful!  I loved being surrounded by their fabulous art every day!  The opening night was a huge success I got to meet so many new customers and the 3 of us worked so well together, it was an absolute pleasure having them instore.

I have been a busy bee with some beautiful interior work, great clients who I have loved working with!  A little sneak peek of a few bits and pieces I have been doing... There will be more photos to come when the jobs are 100% finished!

Loving potted colour indoors with the cooler weather.
One of my favourite bed heads I have ever done!
Finally... Mothers Day is just around the corner... I sourced these stunning original Louis Vuitton and Chanel adverts and had them framed just in time!!!  What mother wouldn't love one of these on Sunday! There are 6 in total, each is a one off and each is just as gorgeous.

Thanks so much for putting up with my sporadic posting... I am going to try to get on here more often and keep you all updated!  The shop is always changing so it is worthwhile popping in if you can! xx

Amore Angels in Brisbane

More images on my instagram rylointeriors.

Over the past few weeks I have been organising an Art Exhibition with Nadine Sawyer and Alexandra Ranken to be held at Rylo March 9th.  It is all coming together now and I thought I would share with you a little sneak peek of some gorgeous new cushions I just got back from the workroom featuring Nadine's gorgeous Angels.  Both Alexandra's and Nadine's art work so well with my style and I am so excited to transform the shop tomorrow into an explosion of art and colour.

Come along if you can.  The exhibition opens tomorrow night, Friday 9th March 6pm - 9pm and will continue for 2 weeks.  We will have Champas and nibbles tomorrow night with great music and of course great people!  Hope to see you there! xxx
