Friday Files by: BOYAC – Spotlight on Brisbane


With the G20 summit in Brisbane this weekend we turn the spotlight on some of the River City’s designers whose gorgeous shop fronts have us thinking about our dream homes and perfect Christmas presents (it’s only 40 days to go!)

Black and Spiro


One of Brisbane’s most iconic home wares and design stores, Black and Spiro is a feast for the eyes with colourful lounges, divine custom lampshades and carefully selected treasures to fill your home.  Owner Anna Spiro has just released a book “Absolutely Beautiful Things by Anna Spiro” – a  perfect stocking filler this Christmas. (How amazing does this settee look upholstered in Thibaut Malibu colour Peony?)

Magnolia Interiors

Shop AM3, 46 James Street Fortitude Valley , QLD

Robyn McKendry and the team at Magnolia Interiors are not afraid to be bold with colour and patterns and the results are spectacular. This Fortitude Valley favourite is the go to retailer for all things unique and fabulous. At Magnolia Interiors, you will find an assortment of custom cushions, lamps, bedding and accessories you will just have to have.

Rylo Interiors

985 Stanley Street, East Brisbane QLD

Lauren Pearse has created a gorgeously girly shop/studio that compliments her design style perfectly. Filled with fabulous pieces you won’t see anywhere else, you are bound to find something for the person who has everything or something you didn’t even know you needed. (We spy Thibaut South Sea Turquoise fabric on the lamp shade)



AP Design House

15 Latrobe Terrace, Paddington QLD

Walking into AP Design House is like entering a modern day Aladdin’s Cave.  With a mixture of old and new, owner and designer Alexandra Ponting has carefully and lovingly selected pieces that intrigue and excite. Our Design Heure Chandelier 3 Grand Cargo light is currently taking centre stage in their front window.
