The Latest and The Greatest

All I have wanted to do in 2016 is get on the Blog and start shouting from the lines about all of the amazing things we have going on this year.  But between the 7,000 miles I have already driven in 2016, two adorable children, several gorgeous projects, a fleet of airstreams, and designs that keep my little head up at night- I have been slightly preoccupied.

So to smooth things over- here are a few sneak peeks of our latest adventure with Ryan Jurrius and our on going love affair with the Low Country.  Thank you to the AMAZING Banner Adams for her beautiful images....they are perfect!

Dwell Construction

On tomorrow's episode of Fix it and Finish it  Clinton Beck and his crew from Dwell Studio take a ghastly garage and turn it into a super cool boys hangout space!



Clinton and his team took a space that was basically being used as a storage unit and turned it into a the perfect hang out space with a Low Country feel.

We took out all of the existing walls and and replaced them with Hardiplank.  Clinton used a batten and board pattern to give the space a Low Country look....and the end result is PERFECTION!

Here a few shots from some of Dwell Construction's beautiful projects in the Charleston, SC area!

Thank you Dwell Construction for your time and talent!


Charleston Heart Pine

One of the elements of our "Pretty in Pictures" Fix it and Finish it Episode, that made a huge impact on the space, was the flooring by Charleston Heart Pine.  The Heart Pine makes the space now feel warm and inviting.  By eliminating the cement the space now looks like a professional office and not a make-shift room in a garage.




It was very important to the home owner to use local products, so we loved the fact that all of the wood flooring used was from trees grown in South Carolina.   Charleston Heart Pine purchases only the finest old growth long leaf pine available. This timber is cut and logged by  company’s crew, processed into lumber, and marketed from our mill site in Jamestown, South Carolina.  Each board is trimmed by hand to insure the highest possible quality.

Thank you again to Charleston Heat Pine for providing the flooring and to Elliott Brothers  for installing them.  



Perrin Woodworking

We are gearing up for our next episode of Fix it and Finish it airing November 5, 2015.  One of the stars of two of our episodes is Perrin Woodworking.  Every city we go to we look for subs that we would use on any of our design projects, people that work the way we do and have a beautiful product.  I first spoke to Dan Perrin when he was on his way back from Atlanta installing pieces in a restaurant they we were working on.  I had already seen his website and was blown away and thought for sure he would be too busy to help us.

  Most people I reach out to are hesitant when I first call them and think I am little crazy when I ask them to be apart of a one day project that in real life time takes months.  Dan wanted to help us in any way he could and told me to send him images.  Over the next few days I sent Dan a few rough sketches and we had a couple of calls.  I never know if people understand "Ryland's Language" until we get into the drawing phase of a project- especially one that has all been communicated through emails, texts and phone calls.  Not only did Dan translate my vision into reality he also added and subtracted his vision into the perfect end result.

When I arrived in Charleston my first stop was Perrin Woodworking.  I could stand and stare for hours watching their crew - true artisans.  They took my ideas and translated them into a beautiful and functional work space.  You always hope that things look as good as you have envisioned them and when they actually look better, you know you are working with an artist.

Needless to say we will forever be grateful to Perrin Woodworking.  We know we will be working with them on many projects in the future.  Their level of professionalism and incredible work makes them a standout in this industry!  Tune in to see what they helped us create next week.

Here a few shots of their work you do not want to miss....
