With the tagline “Make Life Beautiful” it’s not hard to see what owners Shae and Syd McGee’s mission was from 2014, when they first opened Studio McGee. That, along with the ability to turn any space into something that is Chic, stylish and comfortable, made a great combination for the duo when teaming up with Netflix for the “Dream Home Make Over” Tv Series.
If you’re an interior design lover then becoming a Studio McGee influencer might be the perfect fit for you!
What Is Studio McGee?
From the beginning, having the ability to turn something that wasn’t aesthetically pleasing and dysfunctional, into something that was, was their strong point. As the couple continued to complete various projects and upload the results to Instagram, it began to create a lot of interest amongst their friend and family, which is when they decided to launch their business and turn their passion into what is now, Studio McGee.
Though, they had a lot of support from their friends and family. Its always been true that it helps to be in the right place at the right time, and that is exactly the case with Studio McGee. They began seeing real success in 2020 when the uptrend in homeware hit an all time high.
At the six year mark of the business, they built a loyal following on Instagram that would be the foundation of the studio’s online eCommerce store. This store would allow fans to purchase the same homeware and finishes, that she used in various projects, in their homes.
Of the seven companies they have built, SM Design is the interior design company which kicked off their careers, and McGee & Co, is the company they use for their e-commerce business. Their eCommerce business houses a wide variety of home furnishings and houseware, which is currently looking for affiliates to help their brand branch out to new corners of the market they haven’t reached yet. Having a timeless style that appeals to a wide range of people, Studio McGee is able to implement their tagline and “Make Life Beautiful”.
During the pandemic, Studio McGee was able to get even more momentum and brand awareness when the business industry grew over the course of the year by $7 billion. This is no surprise! During the lockdowns, it seemed like everyone was home redecorating or DIY’ing. I mean, Instagram was flooded with interior design tutorials!
Another part of their business that has grown exponentially is their eCommerce store. Again, this should come as no surprise, but still, it’s an impressive feat nonetheless.
All of this, paired with their awesome home improvement Netflix series is what’s allowed the couple has built a strong and recognizable brand that is friendly and appealing to the masses.
