Luxe Home Updates on a High Street Budget

Favourites 35

If your home is in need of a style injection take inspiration from design duo Studio McGee – we’re huge fans of Syd and Sheila McGee’s contemporary designs who can transform the blandest of backdrops into the stunningly spectacular, giving home lovers everywhere the motivation to quietly revolutionise every room in their home.

Whether you’re looking to completely remodel or just add a few style twists to your space, their quirky design projects are enough to inspire even the most modest of home overhauls.

From beautiful bedroom adornments to cool kitchen updates their latest project, Foothill Drive, is the ultimate interiors fix. But despite its plush appearance, the looks are fairly easy to recreate, even on a high street budget. There are a few splurges to consider – namely the sumptuous silver Persian rug and the extravagant crystal chandelier – but paired with some budget buys you too can nail the look with ease.


Classic Bedroom

Keep it simple. Fresh whites provide the perfect blank canvas in any bedroom. Yet incorporate a few splashes of dark colour, in navy hues, and you’ve created a slick, grown-up scheme. Crisp white linens, sumptuous fragrances and a statement chandelier will complete the look.
