This is new and fun!
Here at Beam&Bloom, we specialize in making Home Design affordable, attainable, functional and inspiring...so, we’ve decided to provide a monthly copy-cat post with a Designer Space that we LOVE...but, alas, cannot all afford. We find direct purchaseable links to products that will give you the look for much, much...much less. It might require some “homework” and furniture assembly...but, for those of us with the dreams and not the dollars...we’ve got this.
Click on the links or photos to purchase, and complete a Stellar look for a STEAL!!!!
We ALL love Designs by Studio McGee! The eclectic but refined style embodied by Shea and Syd and their beautiful company are universally appealing and livable! You can always visit McGee and Co. to get some of the high end items that you see!
As we celebrate this holiday season, we could all use a stunning and welcoming entryway.
Of course artisanal quality will be a bit lacking, but these pieces should hold up well until they’re ready for replacement. And when you are ready to change things up, you should be able to afford to!
Let’s start with the console table. The “steal” scale will be a bit smaller, so, even if you have a sparse space to work with, you can make this happen! This console table that we found on Wayfair is only $107!!
It’s 48 inches wide, so not too scant, but will definitely require some assembly. We like that it has the built in shelf for the baskets, and that it carries those straight lines from the inspiration design.
To get the important golden touch of the antique brass drawer pull, you’ll have to add it. Luckily, for about $4 and a screwdriver, you can do just that!
The mirror is our main design focus here, and the Studio McGee version is a lovely large, round, weathered wood. We stole the shape and changed up the material with an All Modern find in antiqued brass metal, and a very similar shape for only $185.99. Center and hang your beautiful mirror about 5 inches above the console tabletop.
The baskets are another key design element. We found these lovely floppy ones from Target that give us the easy slouchy style of the Studio McGee version, and 3 should fit nicely under our console pic.
Let’s shed some light on these large lamps from Target! Their crackled beige ceramic give the earthy quality of the original design, at a reasonable price point.
Tabletop styling has become a favorite for us at Beam&Bloom, and Studio McGee has it down. Eclectic pieces that add to, but don’t overpower the vision. We found a great standing magnifying glass that adds so much character! It’s not super cheap, but definitely an eye catcher. (Wink, wink)
Place the magnifying glass toward the right lamp, and stack a couple of your favorite pretty books to the left of it. We decided not to add the decorative box below, because we are a bit lacking in space width wise.
This cute hammered gold pencil holder by Nate Berkus for Target is the perfect mini vase to sit on top of the books and hold some pretty blooms. Pink works nicely with this color scape, and I always love peonies! But, go seasonal.
A low and flat decorative bowl finds perfect placement to the left of your little book stack between it and the left lamp. For our design, we chose a light aqua blue (pasta bowl) option to add a bit of oceanic color. But, here is where your own personality can completely shine through! Because of the neutral palette all around, you can choose to make a color pop or blend in a variety of textures... it’s up to you.
As a bonus element to this design, we have added a muted beige geometric rug for those many homes that don’t have the gorgeous beige geometric tile in their entryway. This will really finish the look, and give immediate visual impact.
Your new entryway will be warm and impressive, and frequently utilized while welcoming your friends and family during this holiday season and well into the New Year!
