After working with 3 designers, Caren still didn’t have a plan for her open living/dining room. Here’s what happened when this skeptic turned to Modsy for help.

Homeowner: Caren S, Aesthetic medicine physician

Location: Potomac, MD

Room: Living & Dining Combo Room

Her Style: Discerning Collector

The Backstory

My family and I had recently moved into a new home. The new space was perfect, but our old furniture just didn’t fit right. I wanted a more ‘fresh’ and ‘modern’ look for the new space and decided it was time for a redesign.

And while I can appreciate a well-styled room, I cannot curate a cohesive look on my own. I’ve picked things out that look great online, but they don’t work all together in a room. I’ve also bought furniture in the store, which seemingly looked great, but once I got it home the proportions were all off.

So when it came to redesigning my family’s new home, I knew I needed some help but still wanted to be involved in the design process.

The Design Dilemma

I wound up working with three interior designers, and not finding success with any of them.

The first was an expensive designer, to whom I paid $200/hour only to get advice I wasn’t sure I loved… But I didn’t want to pay another $200 to talk about it! I also tried a moderately-priced designer, and she recommended things that looked great, but turned out to be the wrong dimensions for the room.

Finally, I used a very reasonably-priced designer who was lovely, but her ideas were outside my comfort zone and I hesitated to commit without being sure. In the end, I led her down paths of safety and boredom and didn’t end up implementing any of what we’d worked on.

The Modsy Moment

When I saw ads on Facebook for Modsy, I figured I had nothing to lose. That said, I was definitely skeptical because I wasn’t sure if I’d get a design that looked as good as the one in the ad.

On top of that, I was unsure I’d be able to communicate what my style was, as my personal tastes are so all over the place. I like rustic, modern, worldly, eclectic, minimalist, funkiness, neutrality, color…. Who on earth could actually create a room that satisfied me?

“I felt that this was the start of something very awesome. And it was.”

When I opened my 3D Modsy design I was thrilled! It was so exciting to see my room looking harmonious, homey, beautiful, and “me.” I was overjoyed and felt that this was the start of something very awesome. And it was.

How Modsy’s Designs Helped Caren

The experience was fantastic. With Modsy, I could literally see my exact room, designed in two different and beautiful ways. No guesswork involved regarding, “Would I really like that chair? Would that sofa fit right in the space?”

My Modsy 3D design was so realistic! It was like walking in my room and seeing it exactly as it is in real life, only with totally new furniture.

On top of that, purchasing furniture through Modsy was a great experience. I got the online sale prices plus an extra discount from Modsy.

The Real Results

My Modsy designer managed to create a design that blended my multiple – and seemingly contradictory – design styles. For our new home I wanted something interesting but minimal, colorful but neutral, earthy but modern, funky but simple, bold but classic… I thought that I’d have to settle for just ‘one’ type of style, but Modsy’s designs gave me all these elements in one perfect space!

The design for my living/dining room helped me break out of my comfort zone. I bought things that I never would’ve had the guts to purchase on my own.

“It seriously looks exactly like my 3D Modsy design.”

The funky dining chairs were something I never would have looked at in real life, but seeing them in the 3D Modsy design, and how good they looked with the other items in the space, gave me the courage to purchase these whimsical chairs. They now make me smile every time I walk in the room.
