Shea McGee’s kitchen design secret is to add art to worktops

Fans of Dream Home Makeover on Netflix have witnessed the moment when one of Shea McGee’s design projects comes together. It truly feels as though she’s waved a magic wand and made a dated, L-shaped kitchen into the kitchen of our dreams.

As far as we can tell, this isn’t actually the case. There are definitely some fundamental design elements at play, from which we can draw inspiration in our own homes. 

One thing Shea McGee often does is to include artwork on the countertops of her kitchens.
