I am so excited to finally be able to share our  entry reveal with Studio McGee! They put together our entryway as part of their ‘Two Day Transformation’ Series. It’s where they come into a home and makeover a space and completely surprise the owner. I am obsessed with everything they do, so it was easy for me to totally trust them to furnish the space.  I’ve worked with them a couple times and they are one of my favorite brands to work with their team is so amazing.  Keep scrolling for a full look at the space plus the seating area they put together along with links to everything!

To get the process started, I sent them pictures of the space and also gave them a few function requests that I had on my must-haves: a big console for the entry way and I wanted something large scale above it. On the other side of the stairs I wanted  a comfortable seating nook that wouldn’t clash with our living room decor since they are so close to each other. As far as the general vibe, I just wanted something warm and welcoming that flowed with the rest of our house –  and they really nailed it!

We actually shot two different console tables. One with storage and one that has a more open feel. I love both! The one with cabinets is super similar to another piece of furniture we have in our dining room so I ended up going with the open one, but I loved both so much I wanted to share the styling with each 🙂

CONSOLE OPTION 1:

This is Shea (@studiomcgee) and the owner of Mcgee and Co. We’ve been friends on insta and got to finally meet during this project, she’s as sweet and beautiful in real life! Make sure to go follow her!

This is the first console option with the storage. I love the caning on it and natural wood tones.

This framed beach print! I think is the single piece that most captures our style – coastal casual.

Obsessed with these vases! The come in three different sizes and the matte black is the perfect texture to tie in the black accents throughout the rest of the house. Kristine, one of Studio McGee‘s stylists and is my favorite to work with, just pulled this greenery from a tree. I had never thought of that before but it’s really a brilliant way to get some extra height.  This bowl was another piece I instantly fell in love with the second I saw it and it’s actually a good price point! I was expecting it to be a lot more expensive given how heavy and high quality it felt.

The Studio McGee team picked out this linen bench and this was probably the most surprising piece for me! I don’t think I would have picked it out for myself, but that’s why they are the pros! The slipcover really helps to break up all the open space with the metal banisters so I love how it brings some weight to that area. It’s also super comfortable and the perfect quick seat when we’re running in or out quickly.

I’m also so happy with the rug they went with! I had been on the hunt for the right rug for the entry way – one that had a little bit of pattern to break up all the solids throughout the house, but also something that would complement the living room instead of competing with it. This striped jute rug was the perfect medium!

SEATING NOOK:

This nook by the stairs was probably the spot in the house that had me the most stumped. It’s small enough that I couldn’t add large furniture or it would block the entry to the kitchen/dining room but also big enough that I needed to bring in some height.

These two chairs were really the perfect choice for this little sitting nook. They are actually comfortable too and I love Studio McGee kept the furniture in this space neutral so I could swap about the accents to transition each space for the season by swapping out the pillows or florals. I also love the height this floor lamp brings in to balance out the height of the mirror.

My favorite piece in this space is the oversized mirror. You guys know how many mirror selfies make their way to my IG or stories, so this seemed like the perfect spot to snap a quick outfit pic on my way out the door! It also brings a much needed height to the space since the ceilings are so high.

I couldn’t be happier with this space! It was neutral but still brought in some soft colors and tones to make it feel welcoming and lived in. Everything is from their shop, McGee & Co. If you haven’t checked out their shop, you need to! All of their pieces are so beautiful and the highest quality. Every time I see something I love online, I’m even more blown away by how beautiful it is in person!

Here’s a video of our full transformation!

Below are a few more of my favorite pieces from McGee and Co right now! I’m currently adding all this holiday-related to my cart – they have the best options!

    Beautiful space, Christine! Can you share some info on your

    Beautiful space, Christine! Would you mind sharing some info on your front door? Is it solid wood painted? Or a different material? I absolutely love it and am currently finalizing all of our plan details! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Wow! Absolutely stunning! I do love Studio McGee. Such fantastic styling. The only thing I’d add is a chic coat rack for guests (or whoever) to stylishly drape their coats, scarves, etc. I am drooling over the full paneling on the walls too. Amazing!

    I love your front door!!!

    With the grandeur of your home, I don’t think that Studio McGee’s basic every-Utah-home design did your space justice at all! You needed a more prestigious designer with richer & much larger Restoration Hardware type pieces. Your home is STUNNING… I just think Studio McGee did a very boring job. The chairs in your corner need to be HUGE, cozy & upholstered. Not cheap, wooden & small. Your console table is a much better choice (way to voice your opinion). The entry bench is lovely; however, a deep charcoal gray would have been a richer color, especially with your black front doors. I do like the use of the leaning mirror, but it should have been TWICE the size for the space. I’m not being negative, just sharing my design opinions. Have a lovely day!
