Shea and Syd McGee
Shea McGee and her husband Syd are the owners and creative forces behind Studio McGee, a design studio, and McGee & Co., a line of home products featured through Target. They also released their book, Make Life Beautiful, in October 2020. They credit much of their businesses’ success on Instagram (with 1.6 million followers). They design for customers in Utah, where they now live, and outside the state.
Shea came to Brigham Young University from Texas and majored in public relations. Syd was her brother’s roommate, and the two began dating the day after they met.
Although Shea was pursuing a degree in public relations, she loved home design. After Shea and Syd married and she graduated, they moved to his home state of California where she took interior design classes at a community college. She gradually grew her design business as she became more confident. Their team’s work has been noticed in the design world with such venues as House Beautiful, Domaine Home, Design Sponge, Apartment Therapy, SMP Living, and One King’s Lane. They partner with Target Stores.
Their show, "Dream Home Makeover," premiered on Netflix in October 2020.
Syd has a degree in marketing and worked for a start-up digital marketing firm. He serves as CEO of Studio McGee and McGee & Co.
The McGees are the parents of three daughters. They are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
