This is Caroline Scheeler's house in Wayne, Illinois. My first job was lifeguarding at the Dunham Woods Riding Club in Wayne. I grew up surrounded by the town's horse trails and buildings which are steeped in history. It's one of the best small towns in the country. I was thrilled to see these photos of Caroline's house there. She commutes to Jayson Home & Garden in Chicago, another home-town favorite of mine. Photos by Roger Davies. Firewood below this Natural Curiousities photo makes a great vertical statement.
Photos up the stairwell look especially unique surrounded by this custom runner Caroline made from an antique Turkish rug.
Ribbons displayed this way show a burst of color and tell great stories of Caroline's youth.
Interior design is a large universe full of ideas and inspiration. At HallReady I want to focus on a niche of design, the art of display. My goal for this blog is simple, to showcase a variety of ways to present art whether it's in the bedroom, kitchen or down the hall. Examples will include photos, paintings, taxidermy, collected objects, fun products and more. I'll look at a wide range of art, from homemade to gallery purchased, and investigate how framing, grouping, and coordinating art with surrounding objects can make a statement.
I'm Kate Shaw and I've worked as a photographer and in design magazine publishing. My love for interiors began with the gift of a book about Martha's Vineyard style when I was 12 years old. Since then I've been obsessed with all things related to art and interior design. Reach me at HALLREADYBLOG@gmail.com
