A love of color runs deep for both Steve and Jill.
In fact, Steve worked for Sherwin Williams during all of his summer breaks from college. He actually had to pass several rigorous color accuracy exams to secure the role, affording him the opportunity to pull together paint palettes for specific markets. Beats the traditional summer gig laboring in the heat, right?!?
Needless to say, this love of color hasn’t faltered over the years and when first conceptualizing the idea of steve mckenzie’s, textiles in a broad range of vibrant colors were top of mind for Steve and Jill. These textiles have, of course, come to fruition, and the original palette has grown to include new colors and patterns – and are a favorite product to share with clients for the whole steve mckenzie’s team!
Naturally, Steve and Jill are always excited to see when new paint color palettes are launched. And, when they first heard about the smart partnership between OPI nail polish and Clark + Kensington paint, they knew there was synergy there to expand this pairing to our steve mckenzie fabrics!
We had a ball sifting through the many delicious colors available through OPI – not to mention enjoying the cheeky polish names – and matching them to our own fabric palette. Perhaps this will inspire you to bring some of that color up off your fingernails and go bold with the fabric and accessories for your home…
