What We Do
Through The Years
It all started when Shea remodeled and designed the first home She and Syd shared together. Documenting it all on social media grew a loyal following. Before long, the potential of designing fulltime was realized. With this momentum, Syd and Shea launched Studio McGee in 2014.
McGee & Co.
Syd and Shea began sharing content on StudioMcGee.com and launched a YouTube channel. As the ways we shared were expanded, Shea realized a dream (and need) for designing and curating products of her own. McGee & Co., our e-commerce brand with all the best pieces in one place, launched in 2016.
The McGee Home
A portfolio-making project of ours was Red Ledges with Killowen Construction. It was the first project we did with Killowen, and we'd partner with them again to construct the McGee family home. After renting for years, it was Syd and Shea's turn to create their very own dream home, breaking ground in 2018.
Expanding Our Reach
Syd and Shea wrote their NYT best-selling book Make Life Beautiful, profiling the start of Studio McGee and their life together. 2020 also saw the beginning of a long-running partnership with Target and the release of the first season of Dream Home Makeover in collaboration with Netflix.
As season 3 of Dream Home Makeover was debuting on Netflix, we realized that the Studio McGee team had grown significantly since 2014, and it was time for us to design a brand-new office that would properly fit all of the teams working behind the scenes. 2022 was the year of expansion in our home city of Salt Lake City, Utah.
Partnerships and Beyond
During the year leading up to the ten-year anniversary of Studio McGee in 2024, we launched partnerships with Kohler and Ann Sacks, released Shea's Session on MasterClass called Design a Space You Love, debuted our first coffee table book, The Art of Home, and took on our first international design project, Cabo Dos Vistas.
