Bloggers! They’re just like us. Even those who write about design, decor, and home trends all day long can still struggle with actually brining their ideas to life. While every Instagram post might be #homegoals, it’s almost guaranteed that they too have at least one room that’s been a “work in progress” for years.
Sound familiar? Continue reading to peek inside the homes of 5 bloggers and see how they used Modsy to transform these challenging spaces once and for all.
A Living Room Revamp with Anika’s DIY Life
The Blog: Anika’s DIY Life
The Room: An asymmetrical living room
Her Style: Chic Collector
The Challenge: Turning this space from awkward to totally chic
Anika from Anika’s DIY Life loves sharing her home projects on her blog. But there’s one room in her house that’s been a complete head-scratcher forever. The culprit? Her living room!
The long space has not been easy to decorate, especially with it’s asymmetrical fireplace, so she never really shared the room with her readers.
Anika came to Modsy with a few key pieces she knew wanted to keep in the space but was looking for ideas on how to make it feel a bit less awkward and more refined. With the addition of some warm colors and a dining area, the room finally came to life!
“I have made mood boards in the past but nothing compares to actually being able to see the design like it was real and knowing exactly what will work in a space.”
Master Bedroom Planning with Love & Renovations
The Blog: Love & Renovations
The Room: Master bedroom
Her Style: Modern Rustic
The Challenge: A cramped bedroom that needed a refresh
Amanda and her husband Corey have struggled with their Master Bedroom for years. While the room is big, it felt cramped and they weren’t sure how to refresh the space.
Amanda said, “we want to add more to it to turn it into more of a retreat, but we’re worried that adding anything would just make it feel even smaller than it already does.”
After seeing some refreshed wall art, a sleeker and slimmer mirror, wall sconces that take up no floor space and plant life to liven up the room, Amanda was inspired! It’s amazing what a few key changes can do in a space to make it feel brand new.
Creative Kids Room Design with Reality DayDream
The Blog: Reality DayDream
The Room: A shared bedroom for their two daughters
Her Style: Mid-Century Chic
The Challenge: Designing a cute and cohesive space for two girls
Bethany and her husband recently purchased a phenomenal historic home in Iowa (seriously, check this house out). And while it has been a whirlwind of renovations and planning, one room they really wanted to finish was a shared bedroom for two of their daughters.
Two girls…easy right? Not so fast. Bethany explained that she was “really struggling with layout and how to fit ALL THE THINGS in this room with it still looking cute and cohesive.”
She teamed up with Modsy to come up with a game plan. Bethany had a few things she knew they were keeping (like the bunk bed, rug and the bright orange chair) but outside of that needed cute and functional pieces and layout ideas!
The result? Colorful designs with ample space to play, study, and lounge. We can’t wait to see the final reveal.
Moody Home Office Makeover with 17Apart
The Blog: 17Apart
The Room: A bedroom turned home office
Her Style: Atomic Industrial
The Challenge: Reimagining their son’s old bedroom into a functional office
A well designed home office should bring peace, productivity and inspiration – right?
Unfortunately, that couldn’t be said about Tim and Mary’s office, which had been a “holding ground and storage space over the last several months.”
The space, which was originally a bedroom for their son, hadn’t evolved since he moved out.
Tim and Mary were huge fans of Chris Loves Julia, so when they heard about Modsy’s exclusive collection, they knew they had to sign up. They were most excited about seeing the office in a completely new way, and designed in a style they loved.
Bringing a Nursery to life with Practically Functional
The Blog: Practically Functional
The Room: A nursery for her second baby
Her Style: Rustic Warmth
The Challenge: Incorporating a hand-made crib and vintage dresser into a new nursery design.
With a baby on the way, Jessi was looking forward to creating a beautiful nursery but needed help putting all of her ideas together. She knew she wanted to keep the crib her father had made and a gorgeous old dresser, but otherwise she had no clue where to begin.
Being able to see those two pieces in her exact room (in 3D of course), alongside decor and other nursery staples recommended by Modsy was a total game-changer. Jessi loved the pastel color palette and open layout, making going to-and-from the crib as simple as possible.
