Today I'm excited to share a Q&A with Christina Fluegge, the creative talent behind the blog griege, and griege design, a division of Fluegge Interior Design, Inc. Christina also finds time to be the Creative Director at My Sparrow, an online store selling home goods and jewelry. I'm a big fan of her style and she knows plenty when it comes to the art of display. Check out her portfolio here. Thanks again Christina!

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
