The Inspiration Edit: Feelings of Spring
The feeling of spring is in full bloom…
and with each new season comes new inspirations. In the springtime, we’re constantly reminded of the beauty in the process as we watch our natural surroundings unfold. In design work, the beginning of our process always starts with gathering inspiration. Whether remodeling one room or building an entire home from the ground up, our team creates a mood board to reflect the look and feel we want to capture in the space.
Our design team at McGee HQ has been playing around with materials that inspire them this season, and we thought it would be fun to share our spring mood board and a few pieces that capture its feeling in the home and wardrobe.

Materials + motifs
A dreamy, earthy palette sets the tone for our design team’s mood board, inspired by the feeling of romance that the onset of spring brings. Muted greens and warm greys are contrasted by the warmth of muddy terracotta and unlacquered brass, while botanical prints and hand-formed tiles add an element of nature’s hand. A whimsical floral pattern by Schumacher, a few paint tones we love from Portola, favorite swatches from our recent McGee & Co. collections, and an image we saved from the recent Freda Salvador catalogue pull the board together.
Décor for a spring refresh
This season, we’re refreshing our homes with pieces and elements that draw from our natural surroundings. Bring the look of our spring mood board into your home by mixing muted natural hues with romantic florals, imperfect time-worn pieces, and layers of decor in textural materials like marble, brass, and vintage stone.
Spring wardrobe inspiration
We’re taking this spring-inspired moodboard and incorporating some of the seasonal elements into our wardrobes with these pieces. The touch of flora and fauna in this top, paired with the warmth of this shade of terraccotta blush make for a perfect pairing. Take a look at all the pieces we are loving for an earthy and romantic spring refresh.
