Arguably one of the best showrooms and sources for one of-a-kind pieces in San Francisco is Coup d'Etat. Darin Geise, the Owner, and Bob Wilms, Sales Director, will be contributing to this year's much anticipated Decorator's Showcase. They've been tasked with outfitting the library of a San Francisco mansion as other top firms are designated to the other areas. I'm sure Coup d'Etat's display will blow us away. The event is from May 1 through May 31, 2010 and proceeds benefit University High scholarship programs. If you can't make that, check out their showroom. It will leave you drooling. Here are just a few of their pieces that fit the HallReady concept of artful display.

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
