STEVE MCKENZIE'S





Do y'all secretly hate me cause I live in Atlanta?  I say this because beside New York and California I think we have some of the best home stores ever!  I mean I could blog exclusively about all the wonderful places we have to shop.....

But I would have to visit them all....probably buy something....and then all hell would break loose at the home front.  Not that hell does not break loose on a regular basis around here.

Good times.

The other day I got a call from a fairly new retail store that opened  on the Westside called Steve Mckenzie's.  "Wanna come for lunch?"  Uh....me?  A big loud "heck yeah".  

What could be better than pretty things for your home and food?  

Maybe a velvet box....or the winning lottery ticket.

Steve and Jill opened their shop almost a year ago.  If you remember the Inspiration Showhouse last January.... most of  Rhonda Peterson's  furnishings came from his store.

He designed the fabric on this chair and it can be purchased by the yard from his store in all of these beautiful color ways!



Here are some pillows from his most recent fabric design....


Steve is also an artist.....

Steve and Jill's home was featured in Traditional Home.

Designed by Atlanta's own Kerry Howard.

The man has taste....


Steve...Steve...Steve....why you gotta be so bad ass?  

Oh yeah....I was hating just for a minute....but OK...back to the store.
He carries  the Grange furniture line



So much eye candy......I hope if you live in Atlanta you will check it out and for those of you coming in town for Scott's or the Mart make it a destination.  

By the way lunch was good.....Jill got cookies for us.  That cinched the deal for me:)

Dexter this weekend......

Shaboom....

You know, it does seem that Atlanta has a ton of home stores! I have never been there but that is the impression I get from reading blogs! Lucky you! Steve Mckenzie's looks amazing!

I remember seeing that in Traditional Home, and loved the library. He also has great shoes. (I'm weird, I know, but I like a guy who wears great shoes. Stop what you're thinking, I'm married. Just sayin.)
