“I have loved watching the evolution of Syd and Shea McGee as they have designed homes, renovated and moved from their own and grown their design business. Their aesthetic and their success is inspiring and it is fun to cheer them on via ‘likes.’”

“I have always enjoyed remaining on the pulse of whatever Eddie Ross is doing. And his latest endeavor, Maximalist Studios Performance and Event Studio in Philly, doesn’t disappoint. Whether he is hosting a party, having a photo shoot or teaching a styling class, I promise you, it will be interesting and of course, inspiring.”

Dunes and Duchess instagram

Stacy Kunstel - @dunesandduchess

“Stacy offers an inspiring mix of her product and professional photography styling photos in her daily posts. In both cases, it’s always a feast for the eyes. I also love that her stories offer a look behind the scenes into all things product development.”
