Ryland Witt + Curious Orange Shop
Roderick Cole of The Curious Orange Store joins Ryland in The Atelier.
Rod is well known in the design industry for his fine tuned eye when it comes to mid-century furniture.
HOUSE BEAUtiful Magazine named her a designer to watch in their June 2016 Issue.
Award winning designer Ryland Witt has been working within the interior design industry since 2002. After working at two prestigious design firms in New York and in Virginia, she launched her own design company in 2006.
Inspired by a worldly childhood divided between Turkey and Virginia, Ryland fuses East and West to create feminine rooms with global appeal. She describes her own personal style as updated traditional with splashes of contemporary. Her number one priority is to create a space that her clients feel is a reflection of themselves and that is completely unique and individual to them.
"When I upholster a chair in a $300 per yard fabric, I want everyone to sit on it," says Witt. "Everything looks better with a little love and age!"
To that end, the 41 year-old Virginian isn't afraid to use the best of her belongings in her daily life, be it a roll of sumptuous silk or the family silver. The equestrian even zips up her glossiest pair of leather show boots for her weekly riding lessons, proving that a little dirt truly doesn't hurt.
"If you don't use something, you're not enjoying it," she says. "I feel the same about interiors: They look better if they're lived in."
Whether the space is big or small, she makes the design count.
Witt recently launched her furniture line, Belle & Burl. Inspired by and created in the Low Country, Belle & Burl boasts one of a kind pieces inspired by historic barns, victorian homes, and modern mills. One of the first pieces, The Hampstead Table, was recently featured in House Beautiful.
Ryland looks forward to expanding her business south and is proud to announce the addition of J.P. Horton who will be heading up her new office in Charleston, South Carolina. J.P. describes his personal style as modernized Southern traditional. His goal when working with clients is to not only make their homes beautiful, but to allow their homes help them be their best selves.
