Friday Home Finds – McGee & Co.

Anyone who has a penchant for home decor and interior design is likely familiar with all things Studio McGee and their online store, McGee & Co. I’m not one for girl crushes but, if I had the opportunity to emulate just one design influencer, it would be Shea McGee. Her style is clean and timeless and she and her husband have created an empire out of making the ordinary beautiful.

While this week’s Friday Home Finds may be short, don’t be fooled – my wish list for McGee & Co. items is long!!!

1. Raw Steel Stand – This stand is a bit of an investment piece as far as home decor goes but it is incredibly versatile. It is one of those pieces that can be used in numerous spaces throughout the home all year long. Plus, the stand itself is a statement and elevates any art or photos that you put on it.

2. Mix Metal Pepper Mill – When purchasing items for our home, I try to be conscious of what we use daily and purposefully pick durable pieces that have function but also look great when not in use. This pepper mill is a perfect example of that – something that we’ll use regularly but that will also blend with our kitchen decor.

3. Rounded Edge Easel – If you’ve been following my Learn To Cook Challenge then you know that I have a bit of an obsession for cookbooks. I’ve been on the hunt for a really long time for the right easel for my kitchen. This one is metal, painted white and doesn’t topple over when you’re turning the pages of your cookbook.

4. McGee & Co. Planter – Simple but gorgeous. I love that it comes with a saucer to catch the water.

5. Paulownia Wood Tray – By now, it’s no secret that I have a thing for trays! This one will make its debut in my kitchen but, since it is so versatile, don’t be surprised if you eventually see it displayed elsewhere throughout our home.

6. Make Life Beautiful – And in case you’ve been MIA from the world for the last year, the McGees wrote a book! It doesn’t have many pictures but it tells the beautiful story of how Studio McGee and McGee & Co. came to be. Perfect bed side read (and decor piece!).

Friday Home Finds – The Home Edit

With two books, a Netflix show and over 5 million Instagram followers, The Home Edit needs no introduction.

I have been obsessed with everything that Clea, Joanna and the THE team do for several years now and have been slowly building my collection of their product lines. The day that Canadian Tire announced they would be carrying the THE products in Canada was like Christmas morning for me! Unfortunately, some products – such as their collection of Canvas Steele baskets – are not yet available in Canada but, no worries, I am not above driving across the border to pick up those beauties!

1. Egg Bin – I usually get my eggs from Costco in packs of 30, so the standard bins don’t work because they only hold a dozen. These bins however hold 15 eggs and are stackable; hence, solving the Costco dilemma!

2. 2-Tier Turntable – Currently, I have three of these turntables spread across my house. We use them to hold everyday beauty products in the bathroom and coffee accessories in the kitchen – the possibilities are endless. They are sturdy, turn seamlessly and clean easily.

3. The Home Edit Books – I purchased each of the THE books on their respective release dates! The first book comes with a sample of the THE custom labels, which I’m still using to this date. Clea’s wittiness and Joanna’s sweetness is spread all over these books and they share many useful and doable home/life organization tips.

4. All-Purpose Stackable Divided Drawer – You might not be able to tell from the image but this drawer is substantial in size and very durable. I was hesitant thinking that the “drawer” aspect wouldn’t glide very well when full, but it does!

5. Divided Turntable – This turntable houses all of my cooking oils and vinegars in our pantry. When put together, the bottles are pretty heavy but this turntable is strong enough to hold it all.

6. Canister – This canister comes in several sizes and I have slowly been building my collection of all of these. A glimpse at the THE Instagram account will show you just how versatile these canisters are.

7. 3 Bushel Elevated Truck – I literally designed the millwork in my laundry room around this truck! There are many versions of the Canvas Steele baskets out there but, so far, The Home Edit’s collection is the only one that I’ve been able to find that has customizable labels (and anyone who enjoys home organization knows that it is all about the labels!).

8. Shelf Divider – We likely won’t be getting custom closet systems in our home for quite some time and will be making do with the builder grade shelves that are included in the build. I used these dividers to keep all of our t-shirts and sweaters in place in our last home and will be doing the same this time around!

In Case You Missed It – the team at The Home Edit just finished filming another season of their Netflix show! I predict my THE collection will be growing even more in the near future once the episodes are released and I get further inspired by their creations!
