Shea McGee Reveals Her Advice For Using Wallpaper In Your Space

"Dream Home Makeover" burst onto the home renovation scene with the streaming site Netflix in 2020. Since then, it has grown thousands and thousands of viewers and is loved by many. However, the show would not be what it is without the husband and wife duo that made it all possible.

Shea McGee and her husband Syd McGee began this show to help change the lives of others. During its run, the couple has worked hard to transform old and worn homes into beautiful spaces. While this may not always be easy, it's well worth it. On their official website, Shea states that no matter how much money the client has in their budget, she wants them to feel at home when they walk in.

The new season is set to premiere later in 2022. Aside from taking on home renovations, the hit show also explores their lives at home and how their personal lives are affected by what they do. Additionally, they give viewers helpful tips and tricks they can try in their own homes. Here's the McGee's advice for using wallpaper.

Using wallpaper for patterned pop of color

One helpful tip the McGee's gave viewers during an episode in season 2 is how to use wallpaper in your home in a modern way. According to Realtor, in the episode titled "Restoring History," the duo tackles a historic home originally built in 1908. The homeowners, Madison and Nick Panos, want to keep the home's historic features as it is well over a century old. While they know the kitchen needs an upgrade, they still want it to look as classic as it did in the early 1900s. To accomplish this, Shea incorporates some new wallpaper into the room.

While wallpaper isn't as popular as it was in the early 20th century, it can still be incorporated in certain areas of a home to give an antique-looking touch. In the kitchen, Shea uses wallpaper in the desk area. This way, the wallpaper acts more as an accent rather than taking over the entire space. The new focal point has blue and white stripes that bring a classic but simple look to the kitchen. It doesn't overshadow the rest of the house and makes the kitchen feel cozier and more inviting to guests. Anyone can use this cheap and simple trick to bring a vintage and classic look back into their home.
