Celebrity designer leans into shiplap in home studio

Celebrity designer and host of Netflix’s Dream Home Makeover Shea McGee recently renovated a room above her new home’s garage to serve as a creative studio.  As discussed on her popular blog, she details the process and thinking behind designing a space where the magic happens.

I really wanted to lean into the studio’s “old attic” essence, so we followed the contour of the roof lines, built collar ties across the vaulted ceiling, and added shiplap throughout. In this case, the white, wide-plank shiplap lent a historical feel and felt appropriate for the architecture of the space. This light and airy backdrop is a perfect blank canvas for when I bring in samples and lay everything out on my worktable.

Here’s a personal tour from Shea herself:
