"When our clients enter a completed space for the first time, we want them to feel an instant connection and for them to feel as if they're truly home."
An artist at heart, Steve McKenzie has found his creative niche in the interior design community, as designer and namesake behind McKenzie Design LLC and steve mckenzie’s, a home décor business, located in the heart of Atlanta’s Westside design district. Steve, along with his wife, Jill, officially opened the doors of steve mckenzie’s in September of 2012, after Steve’s 20+ year tenure with Berkshire-Hathaway owned Larson-Juhl, a custom frame manufacturer and distributor, where he served most recently as the company’s President and CEO. Since that time, steve mckenzie’s has become a destination for interior designers and design lovers alike with an unparalleled and curated collection of home accessories, furnishings, and a line of textiles derived from Steve’s paintings, available in the steve mckenzie’s showroom, as well as other design showrooms nationwide. A practicing artist for more than 25 years, Steve has developed a unique technique, painting with walnut ink and focusing on organic composition. His fabulous new studio is located in the upper loft space of steve mckenzie’s, where he is currently working on his latest art series, inspired by botanicals. In conjunction with the retail shop’s opening in 2012, McKenzie Design LLC was also launched as a full service interior design business. Steve’s keen eye and lifelong appreciation for design, starting when he was just a boy, made this a natural progression for his career. Since its inception, McKenzie Design LLC has completed projects throughout the Southeast and Midwest, has been published in Atlanta Homes and Lifestyle, and has been recognized by other national publications, including House Beautiful and Traditional Home for curation of the businesses’ showroom. The inception of the interior design and home décor businesses have since parlayed into product line design, an upholstery collection, a line of rugs through Verde Home and women’s fashion with a stunning line of scarves.
Jill brings a lively sense of style to McKenzie Design, usually with a nod to a smooth Scandinavian style. Having reared three children, three English Springer Spaniels and hosted countless dinner parties, she understands how spaces need to serve multiple purposes, so you can enjoy your friends and family.
"To us, a memorable space features layers of new items mixed with timeless treasures - objects that tell a story. Spaces like these encourage comfortable living and great conversation."
