steve mckenzie’s, Lately…

We’ve been busy as of late – and have a lot to show for it! Just thought we’d share a quick catch-up here on the blog and fill you in on what we’ve been up to here at steve mckenzie’s.

A highlight of the last month was the reveal of our Mart vignette! In partnership with Castelle Luxury, we created a French Rivera inspired space with their beautiful outdoor Solstice collection. The White Party was an absolute blast and we were thrilled to host so many fantastic friends in our “beach side” vignette!

     Don’t you love this round Pomegranate Natural coffee table from Selamat?

During AmericasMart, Steve and Jill spent some time with the Selamat Designs team in their amazing space. Their blush vignette was an absolute showstopper and we’re even more fond of Thatcher and Shannon Davis – the duo behind Selamat Designs – than we were before!

In the press… We were beyond thrilled to see THREE of our products featured in the pages of House Beautiful’s July/August 2017 issue!! Although perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised as this orange tone does act as a bit of a signature for us. 😉

Their “Sunset Orange” story was a perfect place to showcase some of our most-loved textiles, including our gingham pattern in the Paprika colorway.

Our Loop Print fabric was highlighted, along with a Floralform Dipping Bowl by R. Wood Studios. Can we just say how much we love orange?!? And we’re so happy to see our products featured in this lovely story!

Lastly, we were offered the opportunity to create our dream picnic setup by the folks at Atlanta Magazine – and did they pick the right team or what?! From location and food to textiles and tabletop, Steve and Jill thought of each and every detail and designed an absolutely swoonworthy spot for a lazy summer day!

And that about wraps it up – for now! There’s plenty happening at steve mckenzie’s and we invite you to come visit our showroom and join in on the excitement! You never know if you’ll be walking into a cocktail party, art show or even a crafting event – and we’d love to have you at any of them.

Houzz = THE Social Media Site for the Design Minded

We recently joined the rest of our friends in the design community and opened an account on Houzz for steve mckenzie’s. And, let us tell you – we are having so much fun sharing our projects and communicating with other design-lovers through this fantastic site!

For those of you who may not know as much about Houzz, it’s an online community for all things related to interior design architecture and decorating. If this is your first time visiting the site, heed our advice and carve out a bit of time in your day for perusing the site. It can become addictive.

Houzz page
steve mckenzie’s on Houzz

For designers, it’s a wonderful place to share products and resources and connect with others in our tight-knit community. For consumers, it’s a great place to get inspired and find information on spaces they wouldn’t have been able to access before there was a social media site geared toward decorating. We can all ask and answer questions and have conversations about the spaces we see on Houzz all with a simple click of the mouse.

But beware… Houzz can become a serious instigator of interior design want. The projects featured on the site are just dreamy and there’s so much to motivate you to get going with your own home projects.

In addition to sharing projects and inspirations, Houzz also offers folks an opportunity to rate and review providers they’ve utilized for their own home projects and businesses they’ve worked with before, offering consumers looking for companies to work with a bit of assurance when researching.

Are you on Houzz?!? If so, we’d love to connect with you – just leave a comment letting us know! And, if you’re not already on Houzz, check it out and see what all the buzz is about…
