The team here at steve mckenzie’s is absolutely thrilled to share the upcoming launch of Modern Mix, a fabulous book about curating personal style with chic and accessible finds, by Steve and Jill’s longtime friends, Eddie Ross with Jaithan Kochar.
Here’s a bit about this exciting book launch, which will take place September 1 – available at steve mckenzie’s and also online:
From an unabashed hoarder of all things beautiful comes a fusion of color, creativity and inspiration in Modern Mix.
In this richly illustrated style guide, design editor and entertaining expert Eddie Ross reveals his insider secrets to creating exciting interiors, table settings and parties with chic and accessible finds that celebrate who you are and what you love.
Featuring never-before-published photographs of Eddie’s own homes—his eclectic apartment in New York and Pine Hill Farm in Connecticut—Modern Mix cracks the code to navigating thrift shops, yard sales and flea markets with confidence. Funny and insightful, Eddie is like a trusted friend on the front lines of flea markets and thrifting, telling you what to look for, where to find it and how to restore it. Then he shows you how to use color and pattern to infuse your finds with a fresh, playful spirit, combining high and low, new and old, classic and modern elements into a warm and inviting style that expresses your personality.
Each of the book’s eight chapters—Inspire, Discover, Acquire, Restore, Curate, Mix, Style and Entertain—begins with hand-illustrated titles printed in black foil on tipped-in half-pages, revealing surprises at every turn. The essential insights Eddie shares throughout the book culminate in a gorgeous grand finale of gawk-worthy rooms, table settings, bars, buffets and parties.
With more than 350 full-color photographs, time-saving tips and real-life shortcuts to decorating and entertaining beautifully on a budget, Modern Mix will open your eyes to the extraordinary possibilities within your reach and inspire you to live every day colorfully and creatively.
We’re also excited to share that in conjunction with the launch of Modern Mix, steve mckenzie’s will be hosting a book signing with Eddie Ross in our showroom – on Thursday, October 8th from 5-9pm. Mark your calendar to meet the authors!
Congrats to Eddie and Jaithan for taking on this amazing project, and seeing it through to fruition, we’re so happy to be able to celebrate this wonderful book with all of our friends, clients and colleagues!
