Interiors Get The Look 08-03-17 |

Interior designers Studio McGee can’t seem to put a foot wrong when it comes to home styling. Set up by husband and wife team Syd and Shea, the firm focuses on balanced, beautiful homes and bright, open spaces. And this week, we’re loving their house redesign the Claybourne Project – more specifically, the curated eclecticism of the old-meets-new sitting room.

Read on for our favourite features and discover how to recreate the look in your home for less.


The Seating Area

Loaf’s Poste table is a dead ringer for the coffee table Studio McGee used, invest (at a more reasonable price) and dress with fish bowl vases, striking art books and pretty blooms.

The Open-Plan Study

Not everyone has the luxury of a private office in their home, so this is how to incorporate it into your existing living space. We love the idea of pairing this classic wood desk and rustic Persian rug with cooler dark green tones and on-trend foliage.
