My friend Amanda on Joss and Main today!

Hi all, I’ll apologize up front for the lack of blogging this week. ¬†Between taking apart the Inspiration House ūüôĀ , helping the girls with their Valentine’s and preparing for a much needed long weekend away, blogging had to take a back seat. ¬†I’ll be back to it next week with a new client master bedroom reveal!

I did want to stop in quickly today to tell you about another one of my friends on Joss and Main! ¬†Amanda from Amanda Carol at Home and I have been “blog” friends for a while and got to meet in person at last year’s Haven conference. ¬†She is so talented and super nice to boot! ¬†So be sure to head over today at 9pm and check out her collection for Joss and Main. ¬†You will not be disappointed!

See you next week!

 

A visit with Steve McKenzie and a can't miss event!

After seeing this fabulous chair in Rhonda’s space at the Inspiration House, I had to visit it’s creator, Steve McKenzie. ¬†Steve and his wife Jill, have recently opened up shop in the Westside district of Atlanta. ¬†Sherry and I stopped by to check it out last week.

Once I saw Steve’s bright orange logo, I knew we were cut from the same cloth. ¬†Steve’s background is in the corporate world. ¬†He has spent most of his career traveling the globe, but his dream was to open this shop. ¬†When the opportunity presented itself, he and Jill jumped at the chance.

The shop features furniture from Grange, The Old Wood Company and 2nd Story Wood Co., as well as accessories and tabletop pieces from Blenko, r. wood studio and several fabulous vintage finds.

My favorite part, of course, is the artwork. ¬†Many of the pieces painted by Steve himself. ¬†Steve’s artwork inspired a line of fabrics that is represented in the shop and also on many of the furniture pieces and pillows.

Let’s take a look…

I so love these fabrics.  I plan to use them in a project or in my own home as soon as possible!

The doors were leaning against the wall when Steve first visited this space. ¬†He asked if he could use them in the shop. ¬†Aren’t they gorgeous?

A fabulous bookcase from Grange.  Love the turquoise color on the back.  It comes in many color combos, but this one is gorgeous!

The chair that started it all…

These pieces were all drawn by Rebecca Wood of  r. wood studios in Athens, GA.  She makes beautiful pottery, which Steve also carries in his shop.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the tour. ¬†This was not a sponsored post. ¬†I wrote it because I love to support local shops and especially local artists. ¬†If your in the area, please stop by. ¬†It will be well worth your time.
