The McGee & Co. Spring 2021 Collection: BTS
We traveled to Joshua Tree…
to shoot our latest collection with McGee & Co. Over the years, we’ve been lucky to share many collections created with McGee & Co., and today, we’re excited to take you behind the scenes of traveling to Joshua Tree to shoot our latest Spring 2021 collection.
"There is an endlessness to the desert that feels peaceful and calming, there isn't fluff of a sensory overload, and we really wanted to bring that feeling inside the home with organic textures."
Watch our video below for an inside look at our escape to the desert, and keep scrolling to shop Shea’s packing list, and learn more about a few of our favorite pieces.
The Collection Inspiration
When we started conceptualizing our Spring 2021 Collection, we knew we wanted to build it around the idea of creating reprieve within our spaces. As we enter another year of spending more time in our homes, finding an escape from within is more important than ever.
Inspired by the desert, we began with a palette of muted romantic tones and textures that felt subtle yet impactful.
"Our latest McGee & Co. collection is about designing your home with balance and building an environment that creates elements of retreat."
We wanted to bring warmth to this space with natural fibers and materials. We incorporated those organic textures with beautiful baskets, lighting, and furniture.
In the bedroom, we added a woven rug, linen headboard, and beautiful boucle stools that let materials tell the story.
"We designed our new bedding and bath collection with thoughtful details and high-end materials that breathe easily while keeping you comfortable."
Shea's ritual enhancing favorites
In the living space, we added character through defining pieces that help bring the space to life. Our new Kasen Coffee Table completes the look with great statement legs that resemble the organic nature of a sculptural piece, bringing in artistic dimension.
What we packed:
When shooting this collection, our styling team wanted to be intentional about the greenery used by incorporating elements like dried florals and desert trees that looked and felt like they would grow naturally within the desert’s climate. We sourced our dried botanicals from Bloomist and layered in an acacia covenyi tree and a tradescantia zebrina purple plant in the built-in to add a textural element to the spaces.
“Whether our team is styling a home or a shoot, we try to find a balance between being prepared and letting the process happen organically. Planning as much as you can is important, but being flexible with your options to know you’re creating the best possible result is equally vital.” – Kristine Metcalf, VP of Creative.
