Who are Shea and Syd McGee?

Shea and Syd McGee are a married couple who own interior design firm Studio McGee.

They came up with the idea for this business shortly after they bought a home in Orange County, California. After graduating with a degree in Public Relations, Shea realised her passion for design.

Syd had worked for six years to build a start-up digital marketing firm that was acquired and left him searching for a new start-up to dive into.

Studio McGee was then created in a spare bedroom – despite it starting off as a small business for then stay-at-home mum Shea. Now, they star on Netflix’s Dream Home Makeover and are parents to two daughters.

When introducing themselves, Shea talks of how she designed their first home in 2013 and started posting pictures of the place on Instagram.

Now, they have a whole office of staff who work for their business, which involves designing dream homes for clients across USA.

While Syd claims that one home – which was redesigned and showcased by the couple on the Netflix show – was “easy” to transform, Shea disagrees and says there’s “still a lot of work to be done”.

Shea continued:

Whether our clients have 2 million dollars or 20,000, I want them all to feel that sense of peace when they walk in the door.
