We used the reflecting pool in this wonderful Tiburon home to inform our color choices for accessories in the adjacent living room.

What do Giants baseball and interior design have in common? 

Baby Cyrus

I was listening to NPR on my way into San Francisco this morning and they were discussing how San Francisco is all orange and black these days – not for Halloween (although we have less than 2 weeks until the big day!), but because our local baseball team, the San Francisco Giants, has made it to the play-offs.

For some reason I began to think about what it is about baseball and the Giants that has us all so excited, and how it relates to my profession, Interior Design. I know it sounds crazy, but I actually came up with a few key similarities.

For me, the heart of the matter for both is heart! We love our Giants and our wonderful stadium on the bay.  As true fans, we feel a deep relationship with each of the players, and with the team as a whole.  We go to the games and feel a sense of camaraderie.  We are all passionate about the entire experience: the players, the stadium, the food, the sounds, and the orange and black, too!  We cheer for our beloved team, win or lose…kind of like the way we support family: for better or worse. 

Which brings me to the Interior Design link: As a designer I have significant relationships with my clients.  I work closely with them on one of the most intimate of all things, their homes…where they live, raise their families, and are surrounded by the ones who are most important to them. We are passionate about our work together and even label ourselves a team of client, architect, builder, and designer. And, as I think about what constitutes a win in this game of building or remodeling a house, I realize that it is to have created a true home that reflects the client: where they feel comfortable and passionate about living their lives, cooking their food, playing their music, and maybe even hitting a ball in the back yard.

We loved the article in the IJ but most of all the wonderful job you did in our home from start to finish. It is still the place I most want to be because it fits us perfectly. When people come in they always take a breath and then say wow. They never know quite what it is that make it so pleasing. It is like a fine meal where you can never taste one seasoning. It just is the combination of it all. The paint color, the lighting, the rugs that go with my Limoges Asian china that feel as fresh as the day we moved in. It is a blessing to have had you make our house a home. Thank you, Cynthia!
