Like so many others, Sheri wasn’t totally sold on the idea of online design services. But after trying to redesign her office for a year, she finally took a chance.
Homeowner: Sheri B, Project Manager
Location: Vilano Beach, FL
Room: Home office with a view
Her Style: Mod Enthusiast
Her office had lots of potential, but she needed to see how the space could work
I have a large room that I use as my office that has a lovely, open and expansive view onto the marsh where I live. Since it’s such a large room, I wanted to use the other half for something else. I wanted it to be functional, fun, and for it to have an airy quality that would allow me to enjoy the view.
The Design Dilemma
She had lots of ideas, but that wasn’t enough for her to believe they would work
I just couldn’t make up my mind about what I wanted to do with the space – I probably had 100 ideas floating through my head. At one point, I tried using a 3D app to design the room, but it looked so fake that I had no way of truly visualizing the end result.
The Modsy Moment
Deciding there was nothing to lose – after letting all her design ideas sit for a year
I first saw an ad for Modsy on my Facebook feed and it piqued my interest. I’ll admit I was skeptical as to whether this service could make a difference for me. I had been struggling with what to do with this space for over a year and I didn’t think a few drawings would help…

How Modsy’s Renderings Helped Sheri
Clearly seeing the end result, finding furniture she loved, and feeling armed with a plan
When I got my initial designs back, I was very impressed with how real the renderings looked. Seeing the designs made it super easy to visualize how the furniture would look in my office.

When I saw the initial two designs from Modsy, I felt like they nailed my style – I loved the clean, uncluttered lines and I liked the idea of placing a chair in the corner.
But what I really loved, was that Modsy gave me the ability to swap out different pieces furniture. I decided that, while I loved the layouts they suggested, I only just liked the furniture. Making changes on my own made all the difference.

The initial renderings also inspired me to look more into mid-century modern pieces for my office. I liked a lot of the pieces Modsy suggested and – although I haven’t bought anything yet – will likely incorporate them into my final designs.
The renderings really helped me solidify what I’m looking for. And it was fun swapping out the loveseat and chairs so I could try different ideas in my space. There were no big surprises, but the ability to visualize how my room will look without all the current clutter has been the most helpful part.
There were elements of both the initial designs that I liked so I picked the best of each. I combined them into my third design, and that is how I plan on setting up my space. In fact, I’ve moved some pieces from around the house into my office to get used to the proportions of the new set-up.
