When designing her new home wasn’t sparking joy, Allison found a way to outsource the whole thing.
Homeowner: Allison S, Sales Manager
Location: Rochester, MI
Room: Awkward “room and a half” living space
Her Style: Rustic Traveler
A new home with an odd layout had her totally stumped
I’d recently moved to a new home with my family, and needed to fill it with furniture. I wanted to turn our new living room into a space where my spouse, two girls and I could hang out, watch TV, and play. But the room is long and awkward and I had no clue how or where to start.
The Design Dilemma
Out of ideas, Allison just wanted her space to be done
The previous owners used the living space as a “pub room” with a bar and a pool table, but I didn’t think that set up would work with my lifestyle.
“I honestly just wanted to outsource the whole project and have it be done.”
Feeling out of ideas, I couldn’t visualize an outcome that was both functional and visually appealing. I honestly just wanted to outsource the whole project and have it be done.
The Modsy Moment
When an Instagram ad knew exactly what she needed
I’d never tried an interior designer before and didn’t really think the experience was for me. But when I saw an ad on Instagram for Modsy (they know me too well!) I decided to give it a go.
I’ll say I was a little hesitant because I wasn’t sure if the results would be something I actually liked and if they’d match my style.
How Modsy’s Designs Helped Allison
Nailing her style and finding the perfect layout
But, when I got my designs back, I absolutely loved them! I was shocked at how accurate the 3D images looked – I felt like I was actually standing in my room. I was seriously impressed and I showed my designs to everyone I knew and posted them to my Instagram.
My designer also totally got my style right – a little splash of color, a little quirkiness, and the perfect wall art. I loved how they broke my room up into two main sitting areas. That was something I never would have thought of, but it’s the perfect way to use my long, seemingly awkward, space.
The Real Results
Outsourcing the work and enjoying the results
I bought almost everything Modsy recommended minus a few pieces that I found on my own. My room is almost finished and it’s already looking amazing.
“I’m a working mom with two girls (ages 1 and 3) and my time is my most valuable asset. Modsy took the work completely off my hands and I’m so happy with the results.”
Spending my time on interior design doesn’t necessarily “spark joy” for me. I’m a working mom with two girls (ages 1 and 3) and my time is my most valuable asset. When I’m home, I want to be with my family. Modsy took the work completely off my hands and I’m so happy with the results.
