  1. With the news of a baby girl on the way, I couldn’t help but think of how this might affect our entire family’s daily life in every way. I thought of things like – Do we have enough space in our home? How can I redesign the living room to make it more comfortable and functional? Will …

  2. Social media, of any kind, these days is tough. The number of times you are assaulted with headlines you only thought you’d read in The Onion has quadrupled, and I sense it’s really taking a toll on all of us. One of the upsides of all the noise in the news is I’ve returned to seeking …

  3. After the initial stage of daydreaming and planning, accessorizing a room is by far my favorite part of the process. It’s like a puzzle that needs to be solved– one throw pillow or rug at a time. The decor is what really adds life and personality to a room. It’s what turns a house into a …

  4. I can hardly believe that a little over a year ago, I was just getting settled into my new studio.

I immediately started following them on Instagram and enjoyed learning more about their design influence, product lines, and collaborations with artists …

  8. I can hardly believe it but the trees along River Road in St. Paul are starting to turn golden. Being one of those gals who can’t help but publicly profess my love for all things FALL, I’m already transitioning my home and wardrobe into a cozy little sanctuary. I made Joe go out and buy fire …

  9. I’m very excited to cross Vancouver, BC off my travel bucket list. I visited the beautiful coastal city when I was in middle school and have wanted to go back ever since.

  10. Let me tell you what ten days in the country will do to a city gal. It will change you. If you would have told me five years ago I would be craving a tiny home surrounded by woods or sitting along a lake, I would have laughed in your face! But life has a way …

  11. When you live in the northern part of the country, summertime for me is about two things: being outside and hanging with my people.

  12. If you’re a decor fanatic like I am, chances are you’re a huge fan of following all of Studio McGee’s endeavors. The married design duo that started their business out of a spare bedroom in 2014 has rapidly grown to 30 employees, over half a million Instagram followers, and a rapidly growing Youtube channel.
