SF Giants Baseball // Orange October 2014 #worldseries2014

Olive green may be trending next year, but currently around San Francisco it’ orange, orange and more orange. If you haven’t heard, our Giants baseball team is back playing in the World Series – going for a three-peat! This time the opponent is the Kansas City Royals. So far, the series is tied at 1-1. Tonight is the third game.

We will be cheering on the team from home and of course I’ll be pulling out a few orange home decor items for good luck. If you’ll be cheering from your sofa too or just love the color orange, I’ve rounded up some fab home decor items:

San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: The Salon

Even though the 2013 San Francisco Decorator Showcase has come to a close, I wanted to share images a space I really enjoyed touring. The Salon designed by Matthew Leverone of Leverone Design is set just across from the Living Room on the mansion’s first floor. Initially I wasn’t sure how I felt about the design. The large pine trees caught me off guard. Growing up in the Sierra Mountains of Lake Tahoe it would have never occurred to anyone to bring a pine tree inside (unless of course it was Christmas!). But, it works here.

In addition to the non-traditional saplings, Leverone adds modern geometric and exotic elements to the otherwise classical, opulent gathering place.  Some of my favorite details include the vintage hand-knotted Moroccan rug, chrome & hide chair and rich velvet sofa & pillows.

I loved the stately marble fireplace stuffed with logs and the mirror layered with contemporary art. Leverone packs a lot into this well designed,  intimate space.

And in case you missed it, here’s tours the showcase Living Room, KitchenDressing Room, Office and Maker’s Mark Retreat.

Interior Designer Spotlight :: Jay Jeffers

Earlier this week, San Francisco-based interior designer Jay Jeffers was featured on Diane Dorrans Saeks’ enchanting blog, The Style Salonite. Jeffers and his talented staff at Jeffers Design Group are known for creating spaces that are luxurious, yet approachable. Intrigued by Diane’s article, I took a deeper look through the design teams’ massive, diverse and inspiring portfolio. It’s no question Jeffers deserves his recent listing on Elle Décors A List of the top sixty designers in America. I think you’ll agree too after from seeing a sampling of his work.

A headboard not only anchors the bed, it anchors the room. When choosing one, consider your surroundings. Do you want art to hang above your headboard? Then keep it low. With tall nightstands choose higher headboard. Be bold. Are you traditional? Tuft it. Prefer modern? Upholster it in soft smooth leather. – Jay Jeffers via The Style Salonite

In addition to creating fabulous interiors, Jeffers opened Cavalier last year (image below). The San Francisco home furnishings and accessories store showcases carefully curated new, vintage and bespoke pieces from around the world. In addition to the many luxe treasures to be found, it’s also the exclusive source for Jeffers’ debut collection of California‐made furniture.

And there is more to come! Jay Jeffers’ is working on his first book  to be published by Rizzoli in the Spring of 2014. I’ll be looking forward to getting a copy for my library!
