My Modsy Story: How I Designed My New Home Before Moving In

designing a new home Lauren wanted to design her family’s new home before they moved in. The only problem? She couldn’t be in the space to design it. See how finding Modsy on Instagram helped her take on designing a new home, virtually.

The Backstory

Designing a new home and wanting it furniture-ready by move-in

We’d just purchased a new family home, and I wanted to have a design plan before we moved in. I wanted us to be able to order furniture ahead of time so we could turn our new place into a bright and beautiful home right away.

 

The Design Dilemma

Not having access to their new home right away to make design decisions

We’d just purchased our new home but didn’t have access to it yet. Designing the space was a huge struggle as we couldn’t visualize how furniture would look. Not to mention we couldn’t keep going back in to measure and make sure everything would work (or fit!) the way we wanted. It was like we were designing a new home in the dark.

To top it all off, the new space isn’t very big so we needed it to feel open and bright. We wanted to tie the entry, living room, and dining area together while still making them feel like three distinct spaces.

The Modsy Moment

Scrolling for inspo on and finding a solution to her dilemma

I came across Modsy in an Instagram Ad and thought I should give it a try. It was very easy to get started.

How Modsy’s Renderings Helped Lauren

Designing a new home before move-in day

In our first Modsy designs, the designers had come up with some interesting ideas we hadn’t thought of before. We ended up incorporating some of them into our final design.

The first design we got from Modsy gave us a lot direction for our project. We were able to incorporate some things that we already owned (like our sofa and dining table) to save money.

designing a new homeLAUREN’S MODSY DESIGN #1

We had planned to put a large hutch in our entryway, but the Modsy design gave us another idea.

The design plan inspired us to try a leather bench and hanging mirror with an open shelf on the adjacent wall. It made the entry seem more open and the furniture Modsy selected helped to tie the rooms together.

We created a few more Modsy designs (we had seven in total!) until we landed on one that was exactly what we wanted. Modsy’s renderings looked exactly like our space in real life. Seeing real furniture we could buy in our space made designing a new home so much easier.

Designing a new homeLAUREN’S MODSY DESIGN #6

So far, we’ve purchased the bench, mirror, and some accent decor from our first design. We swapped out a few other items in our final design that we’ve also purchased.

It was amazing to see how using smaller and slimmer furniture with glass and mirrors helped to open up and brighten the space.

Designing a new HomeLAUREN’S MODSY DESIGN #7

In the end, the final design was our favorite and most reflects what the room is looking like!

Throughout the process we told so many friends about it that are buying houses, and we even showed our realtor how we were redesigning the space! Seeing how our new home could look, before we even moved in, has made the whole process so much easier.

My Modsy Story: How I Designed My Unique Living Room All Online

online home design

When Annika and her family moved into their first home, designing their unique living room was a major challenge. See how an online home design tool helped her find her inner designer.

Homeowner: Annika C, Recruiter

Location: Northern California

Room: A spacious central living room with unique features

Her Style: Modern Rustic

The Backstory

Leaving the city and starting fresh in their first real home.

My husband and I just purchased our first home. We were relocating from an apartment in Berkeley, CA, to a family house in a small town a little farther away.

We like our home to be tidy with minimal clutter (ie. we don’t like a lot of “things”). I wanted our new space to be warm, inviting, and family-friendly. We have an adjoining dining room and kitchen, so I wanted to create flow between those spaces.

ANNIKA’S LIVING ROOM BEFORE

The Design Dilemma

Figuring out baby-friendly furniture and a design plan with the help of online home design.

We have a 14 month old, so it was important to me that the space was child friendly. That meant avoiding side tables that she could push over and hard edges that she could bump into. I was super interested in ideas for extra storage so that we could take out or stash toys as needed.

As a busy mom who works full-time, I rely a lot on the internet for online purchases. Buying home decor online is always tricky because you never know exactly how it’s going to look in the space. Not to mention returns are a pain when the item is large. And although I love being in spaces that are stylish and inviting, I don’t have a flair for decorating.

When I set out to design our new living room, I wanted someone else’s help finding inspiration. But I didn’t want to stray so far that the style didn’t feel like me. I also wanted the freedom to swap out items in my designs if they weren’t quite right.

ANNIKA’S LIVING ROOM BEFORE

The Modsy Moment

When a friend found success designing her own space online, she was sold.

A friend of mine, who was closing on a home, told me how amazing Modsy was. She raved about how she was able to design her new living room from her computer. We’d just put the offer in on our house, and while I had some decorating ideas, the living room in particular had me stumped.

Making the transition from the apartment to our first home was definitely a process. With all that new space, I knew we’d need to buy many items to fill it up. I thought that Modsy would be a great way for me to play with different ideas so that I could see the final product before committing to any big purchases.

Once I started, I found it very easy to use. We wanted to keep our sofa, and I sent Modsy a link to the exact product which they incorporated into our designs.

How Modsy’s Renderings Helped Annika

Seeing the perfect layout and building on furnishings that match her style.

I was eager and anxious to see the designs! And it was surreal! It was our living room, but it was fully decorated and looked amazing.

From the two designs Modsy gave us, I loved Design #1 the most. The layout perfectly fit our needs and it gave me some great ideas for the space. I took the layout from the first design and made some tweaks when it came to the actual products.

online home designANNIKA’S MODSY DESIGN #1

We kept our couch and decided to keep our coffee table as well. It’s a hand-made piece by my father and is really beautiful, so we decided we couldn’t part with it. I was able to include a similar coffee table in my Modsy designs. This helped me get a sense of how it would look in our living room with the new pieces I was trying.

I made some other edits to Design #1, including a darker carpet because I have a toddler. The original design was a great source of inspiration. It was the calm, uncluttered but still warm, and stylish look I wanted.

online home designANNIKA’S MODSY DESIGN #2

Designing Around Unique Features

Finding solutions for her home’s unique features.

Our living room has a unique feature—a round window that is quite prominent. It was amazing to see how Modsy paired other round elements (i.e. a round coffee table, a round mirror) that really complimented the window. I was also able to see that certain chairs that I was eyeing didn’t fit our space at all.
online home designANNIKA’S MODSY DESIGN #1

One item that I fell in love with in particular was a shelving unit that attached to the wall. It was in an area of the living room that had stumped me, and as soon as I saw it I knew it was a perfect fit for the space.

I also loved it because it’s super child-friendly for my toddler. She can’t pull the unit down from the wall, and I can store non-breakable items on the lower shelves. The more delicate items can go on the top, which means we don’t have to hide all our breakables away until she gets older.

online home designANNIKA’S MODSY DESIGN #1

The wall directly across from our couch is quite large and that is where we have the TV. I didn’t know how much or how little to decorate, but the design that we received was perfect. It’s balanced and stylish without overwhelming the space.

online home designANNIKA’S MODSY DESIGN #2
It was so helpful to see how things fit in the space, size and style wise, without having to spend a lot of time measuring and trying to visualize how something “might” look.

Modsy was amazing and a really fun experience. It helped me find my “inner decorator” as I can experiment with my space and see what looks great and what doesn’t.

The Backstory

Starting with a blank slate in a brand new home

I recently made the move with my family from Jersey City to a new house in Pennsylvania. Our new home was under construction, but I wanted to start planning for the space early. Ultimately, I wanted to feel clear and excited about the look of my space before I spent a dollar on furniture.

The Design Dilemma

She had a design vision, but what if it didn’t work in real life?

My biggest challenge was not knowing if my furniture combos would look as good in real life as they did in head. I find it challenging to stick to one style, so often they did not. More importantly, my husband is not the best visualizer so I struggle to explain my vision to him.

I was also in search of a particular feeling – comfortable yet edgy, interesting but functional. And Modsy nailed it!

I loved elements in both of my Modsy designs and did some editing when I found things I wanted to try.

Design #2 expanded my thinking about what would work in the space and had more of the vibe I’d imagined. The round dining table was beautiful and unexpected. And the leather couch – so cool!

Instead of exploding into huge fights I can show him my vision. Modsy was so helpful for improving our communication.

Design Vision - Modsy customer storyHILLARY’S MODSY DESIGN #1

Design #1 was closest to what I had in mind from the beginning – very comfortable and very functional. The way Modsy arranged the sectional in this first design showed me I could use the room as one big gathering space rather than two separate areas. I also loved the wine rack and the placement of the TV.

With Design #1 I was able to see how the furniture in my mind would actually look in my space. I realized some of the pieces I was eyeing were actually quite large, so I found alternatives that better fit the space.

Design Vision - Modsy customer storyHILLARY’S MODSY DESIGN #1

The decorations in both designs gave me some great new ideas. I combined ideas from the designs I created with some from my original Modsy designs.

The best part for me was being able to play around and try things. I saw how all these pieces would look in my home without having to buy (and likely return) a single thing. My husband also appreciated this. We’ve bought some furniture and there are a few pieces I’m eyeing but haven’t pulled the trigger on yet.

My Modsy Story: Our Living Room Had 3 Major Problems – And We Solved Them All!

modsy customer review

This newlywed couple didn’t know where to begin with their awkward living room. Here’s how they found a plan they could both agree on.

modsy customer review

Homeowner: Ashley S, Computer Technician

Location: Waco, TX

Room: Awkward Living Room

Her Style: Modern Rustic

The Backstory

When a couple’s new awkward living room just didn’t work for either of them

My husband and I had just moved from Houston into our new home in Waco, Texas. He is a native Texan, and I’m from Miami – two very different places that sort of reflect our two very distinct styles! And while we both agree that we like a rustic style, my version of rustic is a bit less traditional. I tend to be drawn towards more clean lines and symmetry than you might typically associate with a “rustic” style.

When we moved in, I had every intention of repainting the grey walls in the living room (which I was not looking forward to!) only to find out my husband loved the color. To me, the dark grey paired with the espresso floors made the room feel heavy. In an effort to compromise, I began searching for ways to brighten and warm up the space, while keeping the original wall color.

When it came to the layout for our space, we both agreed that we wanted a natural flow from the front door into the living area, and onto the adjoining rooms. I did not want to block the fireplace in our living room, but we have a return grate for our A/C on the opposite wall that would have to work very hard if it was covered.

Ashley’s Living Room Before

The Design Dilemma

Limited layout options, a wall color she wasn’t sold on, and furniture they couldn’t agree on

We felt extremely limited in how we could set up our new living room. We tried couches on opposite walls but the front door has a large glass window that lets people see right in… But placing a couch on a perpendicular wall meant covering the A/C return or blocking the fireplace, which I wanted to keep as a focal point.

To make our layout struggles more complex, none of the walls in the room are the same length and they each have various attributes that make designing difficult (like French doors to the back yard or a small recessed area). It was just a huge challenge trying to figure out how to arrange our furniture.

“It was just a huge challenge trying to figure out how to arrange our furniture.”

My husband and I had run out of ideas on how to arrange our living room, and I was skeptical about all that grey… But, since he liked the color I really wanted to keep it. I just could not imagine how to incorporate it into a design that worked for both of us.

Ultimately we wanted a space that reflected both of our styles. And I wanted a design that would make me fall in love with our grey walls.

The Modsy Moment

Finding inspiration (and a solution) from a favorite blogger

I first heard about Modsy through Kate Bryan of The Small Things blog. She was having a hard time designing an awkwardly shaped office and that was exactly how I felt about my living room.

We got started with Modsy almost immediately. It was so simple to use – I did most of it on my phone.

Since our living room has a bit of an odd shape, I actually ignored the recessed corner next to the fireplace when measuring the room. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Modsy had factored in that space into my designs anyway!

How Modsy’s Renderings Helped Ashley:

Solving all three challenges in one design plan

Being a computer technician, I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of Modsy’s 3D renderings. I noticed they included so many fine details, like our wall color, location of outlets and switches, and the recessed area I had originally left out!

Bird’s eye view of Ashley’s designs

Our first Modsy design plan had a very interesting layout and we initially wanted to arrange our space this way. We liked how it put the space to use and it seemed to be a good arrangement for entertaining. We also had not considered getting rid of one of our bigger couches in favor of two accent armchairs. That was a new idea Modsy gave us.

Modsy customer review

Ashley’s Modsy design #1

We liked the furniture arrangement in this design. Modsy’s idea to put a valet table along the back wall was also great, since our entryway is small and unable to accommodate one. It felt like Modsy was able to create two rooms in one.

modsy customer reviewAshley’s Modsy design #2

We ended up going with Modsy’s second design plan since it made the room feel more open. I liked the abundance of light-colored accents Modsy chose, which really helped offset the dark walls and floors. The soft-colored rug made the room feel so open and light – it really balanced out all the dark colors.

modsy customer reviewAshley’s Modsy design #2

My husband and I both loved the industrial and natural elements of the bookshelf and the coffee table. The bookshelf became the piece we were most excited about adding to the room. We are both avid readers but we never thought of showcasing that since we didn’t feel like there was enough space.

modsy customer reviewAshley’s Modsy design #2

I loved how open and warm all of our design plans looked, and how Modsy really was able to blend our styles and design wants together. It was such a relief, after taking the style quiz and then seeing the renderings to finally having both of us agree on a layout and design. As newlyweds, it was great to have help creating a look that expressed both our styles but still felt cohesive.

As newlyweds, it was great to have help creating a look that expressed both our styles but still felt cohesive.

Our plan is to replicate the second design as closely as we can. We’ve already added the rug to our home! Soon we’ll be adding the coffee table and bookshelf, which we actually are planning on building ourselves.

My Modsy Story: How this tech-savvy dad transformed his son’s nursery into the ultimate “big kid” room

Avesh was no stranger to 3D technology and knew there had to be a way it could make designing his son’s first big kid room easy and fun.

Homeowner: Avesh, software developer and tech-savvy dad of two

Location: Princeton, NJ

Room: 3 year-old’s bedroom

His Style: Mod Visionary

The Backstory

Transforming a nursery into a big kid room

This year, our 3 year-old son was ready move into a room of his own. My wife and I were eager to use this opportunity to redo his space. Our plan was to ditch the old nursery furniture we’d used for our two kids, and start fresh!

We knew we wanted the space to be bright, modern, and fun. We envisioned splashes of color and a stylish chair for reading bedtime stories.

My son is really into cars right now. So, while we also wanted to incorporate that into the space, we wanted to do it in a creative and subtle way. Something he wouldn’t grow out of in a few years.


Avesh’s Room Before

The Design Dilemma

Visualizing the results without wasting time

As a software developer, I’ve worked with 3D tools before, so I know how they can make designing a space from scratch easier.

I’ve previously tried creating some 3D renderings of my own for a previous home improvement project. I ended up spending all my nights gathering ideas,working on the designs, or searching for products.

The process was so time-consuming and things always just seemed to look “off…”

For my son’s room we decided to try an interior designer. Unfortunately, the designers in our area were more experienced with a traditional style, and none could create the type of visualizations I was looking for. I remember wishing there was an online service with experienced professionals that could help.

“None of the interior designers in our area could create the type of visualizations I was looking for… I remember wishing there was an online service that could help.”

The Modsy Moment

Letting technology do the heavy lifting

When I learned about Modsy through TechCrunch, I immediately thought they read my mind. My wife and I had started gathering ideas for our son’s bedroom on Houzz and Pinterest, but when we saw the stunning Modsy renders we knew this would be the perfect time to try the service!

big kid roomAvesh’s Modsy design #1

At first, I wasn’t sure if our renderings would look as great as the marketing material… it seemed too good to be true, especially at the price! I was also not sure if they would have kid-friendly furniture options available. We were pleasantly surprised!

When we got our renderings back I was blown away by the quality. The lighting, textures, materials, and layout looked fantastic. There were also many ideas in the designs that hadn’t occurred to us before.

What Modsy’s Renderings Showed Avesh:

The Modsy renderings helped us completely visualize what the room would look like with a twin compared to a full size bed. This was one of the decisions we were going back and forth on, and seeing the two options made the decision easy.

Our first Modsy design showed us how the space would look with a twin bed. We loved this layout, which we hadn’t originally thought of, because it would give the boys room to play and be silly before going to bed.

big kid room
Bird’s eye view of Avesh’s Modsy designs

Modsy suggested a dresser with shelves above for books and other items. The kids don’t need a dresser with a mirror right now, so this was a nice use of that space, which again we hadn’t thought of before. We also liked the idea of the pouf next to the reading chair, because we could use it both for seating and as a place to set books for storytime.

We plan to buy a few of the pieces Modsy showed us, but we’ll most importantly use the layout they suggested. Turns out we already own the little red car they included for us in our design!


360 spin through Avesh’s Modsy design #2

We just wanted a modern space that would delight our son, express his personality, and that we could enjoy at night when putting him to bed, without spending night after night designing it ourselves.

The fact that these renderings are so photo-realistic made it much easier to make purchase decisions and give us the confidence that we’re all going to be happy with the selections.

His Style: Mod Enthusiast

The Backstory

Wanting to make sure everything is right for his family’s first true home

This is our family’s first home that isn’t a temporary living situation. We intend to live in this house for many years so we wanted to design it to feel like home and put some effort and money into doing it right.

So of course we wanted the home to look good while being extremely functional, specifically when it came to our basement. This is the room we use for watching sports and reality TV, playing video games, and having people over for Game of Thrones nights.

Alan’s Basement Before

The Design Dilemma

Working with an awkwardly spacious basement that’s also a gathering space

Our basement space is a bit awkward because the door into the room and fireplace are directly across from each other. The room is split right in two: a front and back area. Also, the couches we had in there were from my parents and nearly 28 years old, so we were ready for a whole new look.

It was a big challenge to figure out what furniture to get and how to arrange it so that there wasn’t dead or awkward space. We ultimately needed help solidifying a design style for the room and finding a layout that worked.

The Modsy Moment

An unexpected discovery that left a strong first impression

I first saw Modsy on Product Hunt. I was very impressed with how real and life-like the mockups looked, so I bookmarked it to come back to later.

Once I got started, I found Modsy very easy to use. The hardest part was picking items for our mood board because my wife and I generally have different tastes. We ended up with a system where I added items to the board then she would give me the final approval.

modsy customer reviewAlan’s Modsy Design 1

How Modsy’s Renderings Helped Alan

Trial by design – and learning what he and his family truly needed for their basement

My family and I were very impressed when we got our first two Modsy design plans back. We never thought our basement could look that good. Modsy showed us a couple different ways to arrange the room that we hadn’t thought of before.

With the first design, it gave us the idea that not all seating has to face the TV. We debated this design a lot and, although we ended up not going with that configuration, it did make us rethink our preconceived notions about the space. And with the second design plan, we found an alternate place to put the TV, but it still didn’t solve the problem of the room feeling cut in half.

modsy customer reviewAlan’s Modsy Design 2

The biggest “aha” moment for us was the idea for putting a sideboard and round mirror on the back wall. I had never considered that idea and as soon as I saw that in the designs, I loved it. The back wall was such a big and daunting space, and the sideboard and mirror perfectly fit our Mid-Century Modern style while filling up the space in a practical way.

modsy customer reviewAlan’s Modsy Design 1

After giving our initial two design a bit of thought, we asked our Modsy designer to create a third. We wanted this next one to be based on our first design (which was our favorite so far) but with a few tweaks.

It’s no surprise then that this last design became our favorite. It had the most functionality and made the best use of our space.

modsy customer reviewAlan’s Modsy Design 3

We ended up setting up the basement like design #3. But we decided to put a small couch on the side wall instead of separate chairs.

The most helpful part of Modsy was visualizing the space. I was able to see the differences in height and depth of different objects, and know how they would all fit together.

The greatest takeaway? Basements don’t have to bland, they can be sexy.

My Modsy Story: When You Can’t Find Furniture That Matches Your Style

Modsy Customer Review

Stephanie and her family moved into their new space, but finding the right pieces to furnish it was a challenge. See how she brought her style to life and made her new house into a home.

 

Homeowner: Stephanie L, military mom

Room: Open concept living/dining space

Her Style: Mod Enthusiast

The Backstory

11 years and 11 places later, finally finding a place to call home

Between my husband and I, we have moved 11 times in 11 years for both of our military careers. After a string of apartments, we had recently moved into a “forever” home – a newly constructed suburban house that we personalized to fit our family for many years to come.

I specifically wanted to furnish and decorate a great, multi-functioning living room. It’s the central space in our home, so it had to be a place where we felt relaxed and comfortable. We have a two-year-old son, so the space needed to be practical in addition to having a cohesive flow since it’s an open concept living/dining/kitchen space.

The Design Dilemma

Stuck on finding furniture that ties together three different spaces

I had made several Pinterest boards, but still didn’t know where to begin with our open concept living/dining/kitchen area. We were ready to invest in quality furniture that wouldn’t just be “making do” until we inevitably moved again, but I was struggling with finding the right pieces and accessories to tie the spaces together.

I wanted the space to feel intentional and purposeful, but my previous furniture was a mashup of college furniture, pieces left over from previous moves, and a handful of items that were too large or too small for our new house.

At one point, I had thought about hiring an interior designer to come to our house, but I was apprehensive about the cost.

The Modsy Moment

Trusting her favorite blogger’s recommendation

I first learned about Modsy from one of my favorite bloggers whom I’ve been following for years – Kate Bryan from The Small Things Blog. It was by pure coincidence that I came across her mentioning using Modsy for her home office, and I knew I had to check it out.

Modsy was super easy to use. So easy, in fact, I was worried I might’ve done something wrong, measured wrong, or taken low-quality pictures.

I ended up taking the Style Quiz five times! I’ve never labeled my style before and often have a difficult time articulating what it is – I can tell if I like something or not, but I can’t say specifically what it is that draws me to a certain look or feel. So I was skeptical in the beginning about the results of the quiz, but that didn’t last long.

Modsy Customer ReviewStephanie’s Modsy Design 1

How Modsy’s Renderings Helped Stephanie

Getting not only the right furniture, but furniture that perfectly matched her style

When I saw my Modsy design plans, I was absolutely blown away by how accurately my style was reflected. I knew the quiz must have been correct because I was so in love with everything. It was so neat to see our how our house looked decorated, but better! It really helped me visualize my exact space and its full potential.

I loved how the design incorporated our existing furniture without compromising my personal style. I had already purchased a sofa and a media console before I learned about Modsy, and I loved those pieces so I was glad that Modsy was able to incorporate them into my design plans.

 

Modsy Customer ReviewStephanie’s Modsy Design 1

The first design was my immediate choice. It had a very neutral color palette of whites, greys, and browns with a few accessories to complete the design, which I felt would be timeless. I would’ve never thought to add a console table in our dining area, but it worked perfectly and added some storage too.

The only thing I wanted to change were the dining chairs. I asked Modsy for a more kid-friendly option, and they were able to swap in the same chairs with a different fabric option.

Modsy Customer ReviewStephanie’s Modsy Design 1

I was also in love with the leather chairs in the living room—I never would’ve thought to put chairs in those spots, but it worked perfectly to add more seating and completed the space. It goes without saying that since then I’ve purchased all of the furniture in the designs.

When my family first moved into our house, I had a vision for my master bedroom. However, when several more more urgent issues arose (like having a baby), I put my design plans on the back-burner.

The Design Dilemma

When she finally had time to redesign, she felt completely lost

I was finally ready to have a master bedroom that was a well-designed retreat, but I didn’t know where to start.

The most challenging part of my room is that the space is large but narrow. Our existing furniture and layout was ok, but didn’t really maximize the space available. On top of that challenge, we recently welcomed a new baby into our family, and I just didn’t have the time to search for furniture I liked.

 

The Modsy Moment

Ready as ever to rethink her space and committing to getting a little help

I first learned about Modsy through Facebook, where I had seen a few ads for their services. After doing a bit more research and reading several blog reviews, I decided to go for it! I’d seen several examples of their rendered designs and knew what to expect in that regard, so I wasn’t skeptical. And once I got on the site, it was very easy to get started.  

I was impressed with how well Modsy was able to recreate my room in 3D with only two measurements and the pictures. They even included the skylight, which I didn’t mention! There wasn’t anything challenging about the process, and I thought the designs were amazing!

How Modsy’s Rendering Helped Laura

New furnishings, new ideas, and new perspectives helped inspire her vision for the space

My Modsy designs clearly showed me how layout played a big role in the flow of my room. I could see the difference right away, without actually having to move my real furniture all over the place. The renderings showed me how furniture placement was key in making my room feel less cavernous and more cozy.

The pieces in my designs were all items I would have selected, and the artwork really pulled everything together. I could finally see the possibilities for my master bedroom!

I really loved elements of each design, and wanted to create a third that combined those parts into one space. I loved the layout of the furniture from my first design, and the artwork and where they hung it from my second. The white and gold combination against my navy walls, along with the artwork Modsy selected, created a calm and relaxing mood—exactly what I wanted in my master bedroom.

Modsy customer ReviewLaura’s Modsy Design 2

I created one more rendering where I revised and added a canopy bed. This was an ideas I probably would not have ever tried without seeing it in my Modsy designs first, because I was afraid it wouldn’t fit.

It not only did the bed fit in my space, but it looked great! Seeing the canopy bed in my space gave me the confidence that it wouldn’t overwhelm the room and would, instead, highlight my tall ceilings.

My space is now set up per Modsy’s suggestion in my first design plan, and I didn’t keep any of my own furniture!

I really wanted to have a home that’s unique and well put-together – I didn’t want it to look like anyone could have designed it, and I wanted all the spaces to also feel cohesive. I found Modsy to be invaluable in re-organizing and designing my master bedroom, and I had a great experience!

A Year in Review: How Modsy Designers Wrapped 2017

Modsy Designers

We asked our Modsy Designers for their best home design advice and what they’re resolving for 2018. Here’s what they loved from 2017 and how they are taking on the new year in style.

Our Favorite Trends of 2017

Mix It Up:

  • “I loved seeing designs include a tasteful mix of bold patterns and colors, rather than trying to be too matchy-matchy.” – Amy

Play With Plants:

  • “My must-have in every room this year was plants. I like that there has been a departure from the fiddle leaf trend and we are starting to see more climbing plants, succulents, and simple eucalypti.” – Joslynn

Get Colorful:

  • “My favorite new home design trend is millennial pink! The subtle hue is a great neutral and works beautifully when paired with true neutrals or even jewel tones.” – Erika
  • “I am really liking darker, jewel toned wall colors. I think this is a great way to add some drama without making a room look darker.” – Gretchen
  • “My favorite home design trend in 2017 was definitely the Jewel Tones! I love using pops of unexpected color in a space, to me it brings life and vibrancy to any room.” – Patrice

Bring In Texture:

  • “Velvet sofas and chairs. I love the texture they bring to a space, and how they can be styled to look casual or sophisticated.” – Belisa

Modsy Designers

Our 2018 Home Design Resolutions (For You To Steal)

Get Personal:

  • My resolution this year is to personalize my space more. Any space can be made pretty but it needs heart and soul to truly be a great design.” – Amy
  • “I’m resolving to appreciate what I have, be inspired by my surroundings and to only bring things into my home that I truly love and intend to keep for many years to come!” – Tara

Update Your Space:

  • “For me, 2018 will mean updating my pillow covers so I can change them with the seasons. It’s a simple thing, but an easy way to make my living room feel different throughout the year.” – Gretchen
  • “My new years home design resolution is to create a dedicated office space! As of right now I have about 3 different quasi-office spaces in my home, but none of them are truly dedicated to office work. I am a firm believer in starting off the year with a renovation project, so I plan to take the plunge and turn one of the downstairs rooms into my own private office getaway.” – Patrice
  • “Get organized ASAP! For me, 2018 will mean getting rid of visual clutter via cute baskets and storage solutions.” – Allison

Take Your Time:

  • “My resolution is to relax and take the time I need to design my space. As a designer I see things everyday that I like and want to incorporate into my home. However, I know it’s not about what I like, but what I LOVE is most important, and finding things you love to fill your home happens naturally over time. Plus you get a more layered, lived in look this way which is the goal!” – Joslynn

Modsy Designers

Lessons We Learned From You:

Modsy Designers have helped solve a lot of home design struggles this year. Here are the lessons we’ve learned from you, our fabulous Modsy customers.

Follow Your Muse:

  • “Don’t have anything in your home that doesn’t bring you joy.” – Katherine
  • “The best piece of home design advice I learned this year is that it is perfectly fine to follow trends in your home as long as it is something you love. I often find that people are hesitant to put something in their home because they are afraid it will go out of style the next year, but if you love it, it will stand the test of time.” – Erika
  • “It’s important to decorate your home in your style, and not anyone else’s.” – Brittanie

Style To Your Habits:

  • “If you’re a person whose style changes frequently, design your home with a neutral color base and add pops of color through decor. This will make changing your space easier (and less expensive) as your style changes.” – Ryen

Make Room For Life:

  • “Use your space! I think we often are too concerned with keeping our homes perfect that we become afraid to actually use them. Homes are meant to be lived in, not just looked at.” – Amy
  • “Sofas don’t necessarily have to go against walls. Floating a sofa in the middle of the room is an easy trick that makes your layout feel more elegant and intentional.” – Gretchen

Don’t Forget The Details:

  • “Sometimes artwork and rugs are the most vital pieces in a space.” – Micaela
  • “Break out of symmetry! Don’t be afraid to get a little crazy and try something wild like using chairs, trunks, or stools instead of nightstands or side tables.” – May
  • “Have at least one crazy-interesting piece in every room! I learned that there is nothing like striking up a conversation with guests over an amazing, one-of-a-kind artwork or decorative accent. Now I’m always telling people to try and bring something fun into their home.” – Patrice

Modsy Designers

Good Things Take Time:

  • “Design your space right the first time around and don’t compromise on what you love or want. To me, this means it’s ok to take your time with your home design project and make purchases in stages. In the long run you will save money and you’ll have a home that makes you happy!” – Tara
  • “Don’t be afraid to buy what you love and get rid of piece that no longer suit you. Along your road of interior design, as you get older, you will be left with the pieces you love, and somehow they will always fit in your space!” – Ermelinda
  • “Don’t settle for something you don’t love. Fill your home with things that make you happy. You’ll love seeing them everyday.” – Allison

My Modsy Story: How An E-Design Skeptic Created Her Dream Office Online

modsy customer review

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.

Modsy review

Homeowner: Sheri B, Project Manager

Location: Vilano Beach, FL

Room: Home office with a view

Her Style: Mod Enthusiast

The Backstory

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…

modsy customer reviewSheri’s Modsy Design 1

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.

 

Modsy ReviewSheri’s Modsy Design 2

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.

 

modsy customer reviewSheri’s Modsy Design 3

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.

My Modsy Story: When Having More Space Made Furniture Decisions More Difficult

Modsy Customer Review

Kristen’s struggle could be any of ours. As her large master bedroom proves, a big space can sometimes be the most difficult to furnish.

 

Homeowner: Kristen B, Director of Marketing

Location: Atlanta, GA

Room: An oddly sized, super-spacious master bedroom

Her Style: Rustic Warmth

The Backstory

Rethinking a personal space that stayed true to her style and how she lives

I live in a house with my family, and I wanted a beautiful, put-together bedroom, something really bright and crisp that matched my taste but also worked for my daily routines. I wanted to keep a headboard I built and upholstered myself, so getting a design around that was really important to me.

modsy customer review

modsy customer review

The Design Dilemma

Struggling to warm up a vast bedroom with the right size furniture

My room was a very awkward size and I had a really hard time figuring out what to do with all that space—specifically how to make it feel homey but not cluttered, and also not too vast and vacant.

Additionally, I’ve never been good at determining sizes, like what size artwork looks right, and where to put things to maximize a space and make it all work and look good together. Ultimately, I needed a new furniture layout and some art and decor recommendations for the room.

The Modsy Moment

Finally being able to see her space from a new perspective

I found out about Modsy from this blog post on The Small Things by Kate Bryan. I knew I needed to try it out, but I was worried that I wouldn’t be happy with the design, which I thought might be totally different from my taste.

When I got my Modsy designs I was blown away. Seeing the furniture in my space really helped me understand that it would work and I felt confident in how it would look. This is such a key difference between Modsy and all the other online design services—I’ve had friends use other e-designers and, by comparison, Modsy is far and away the best.  

Modsy Customer ReviewKristen’s Modsy Design 1

How Modsy’s Renderings Helped Kristen

Landing on a new layout that feels balanced with furniture she truly loves

I was so impressed by the 3D representation of my room. The designs really matched my taste and gave me a completely different idea of where to place furniture. I never would have considered the layout that Modsy suggested. And it worked SO much better!

The designed showed me I could use the length of my room in a much better way by moving my dresser and mirror. Because I had all my furniture crunched on one side of the room, it made the other half seem so empty. It was amazing how the designs helped me get a sense of my space from a whole new perspective.

Modsy Customer ReviewKristen’s Modsy Design 2

As an added bonus, Modsy was also able to include my custom headboard in my designs. It’s a special piece that I built and upholstered myself because I couldn’t find one that I liked in my budget. Being able to see my headboard in the context of these new designs was a big plus for me.

In the end I chose the first design that Modsy created; I loved that layout and I especially loved the bench they used at the foot of my bed. I did make a few modifications, but I’ve since bought the mirror, artwork, and some decor items from that bedroom design.

My Modsy Story: How I Reassured My Husband of My Vision for Our Nursery

nursery

She had a vision for their nursery. He just couldn’t see it. How did this couple got on the same page for their nursery? Read on to find out.

 

Homeowner: Alexandra Navarro, IT Research Whiz

Location: Scottsdale, AZ

Room: A small empty room turned nursery

Her Style: Chic Collector

The Backstory

Her husband wants to be involved in designing the nursery—but he needs lots of reassurance

My husband and I moved from San Francisco, CA, into a new house in Scottsdale AZ. When designing our new space, we were struggling to find a way to combine our styles. He’s a mid-century modern purist, and I adore mixing modern with vintage – nothing pleases me more than a wonderfully large antique rug with a modern stone table on top. We just couldn’t find a way for our styles to coexist in a comfortable and chic way.

On top of that, I’m a more visual person and can easily imagine how a room is going to come together – even before there’s anything in there. My husband, on the other hand, has to see all the pieces together first. Otherwise, I can’t get him on board. One day my mom came over and helped me paint the nursery blue and my husband came home and freaked out! No amount of reassuring could get him to see past it…

The Design Dilemma

She had a vision but he couldn’t see it

I am so grateful my husband cares so much about how our home looks and feels! Designing a space together is a great exercise – we challenge each other and always end up with a space that looks way better than both our styles would alone. However, with our nursery I needed some kind of visual tool to show him my ideas to help get him get on board with my vision.

The Modsy Moment

When another couple’s similar experience with a nursery reassured her

After I found this Chris Loves Julia blog post about Modsy, I knew I wanted to try it out! I was hoping that Modsy would see the accent wall in our nursery and, combined with our results from the Style Quiz, sense what we were going for and create a digital (and very realistic!) render of our finished room.

Needless to say, Modsy really did a great job bringing to life what I had been picturing in mind already! I was elated that Modsy understood the vision for our nursery, and I felt they totally reinforced my ideas. And once he saw how the furniture and decor looked fit in the room, my husband was absolutely on board with everything.

nurseryAlexandra’s Modsy Design 1

How Modsy’s Renderings Helped Alexandra

Seeing her vision come to life eliminated all their doubts and inspired decisions

Since I had made such a bold choice with the paint, I didn’t want the nursery to come across as “half-done.” Modsy really helped pull the whole room together with little decor additions, and helped us see the finished version. We felt reassured in our decisions and felt confident that we knew what we were doing.

My first design was exactly what we were aiming for. It felt playful and comfortable, and I could imagine it with a baby crawling around. We have the crib, dresser and rocker in those exact places (we bought the IKEA dresser in white and I switched out the knobs with brushed brass handles and it looks great!). We’re still shopping for a bookshelf, floor lamp, and side table, though. I also love the light filtering curtains. Nurseries don’t always need blackout shades, and I think this rendering totally convinced me of that.

nurseryAlexandra’s Modsy Design 2

 

I hadn’t thought about the lean-to ladder bookshelf in the first rendering. It’s very modern and fits our style. It could go into any room of our house seamlessly, so I think we’ll be purchasing that. But I also might take the floating shelf idea in the second rendering and organize them upward like Modsy suggested in my first design, instead.

We hadn’t considered the layout Modsy suggested in our second design at all until we saw it – it was very appealing! The rendering made me consider taking a risk on furniture placement and even opting for more adult furniture for a kids space—it can totally work!

Ultimately, though, the room is currently set up like the first Modsy design. I might play around with the placement every couple of months, but this is really working for us. Plus, I love that the room can easily grow up with our little girl!

My Modsy Story: New Home, New Living Room, No Idea Where to Start

New homeowners, Cristina and her husband, wanted all the right furniture—but they just couldn’t decide on anything.

 

Homeowner: Maria Cristina, global marketing director

Location: New Orleans, LA

Room: A bare living room in a new home

Her Style: Contemporary Collector

The Backstory

Graduating from a rental to her family-of-four’s first owned home

I live with my husband and our kids, and we purchased a house in New Orleans, LA after renting for several years. The house is huge and when we moved in, we needed lots of help.

The Design Dilemma

Designing one room became too much work and making decisions became impossible

Our living room was a blank canvas with just a wall-mounted T.V. We knew we wanted it to be comfortable and practical, but style and budget were also very important to us. We didn’t know where to start. Should we figure out a floor plan first? Or should we start on the right size sofa since it was such a big piece? But then how do we place things and make everything look cohesive? We just couldn’t decide.

Where to buy the furniture was another hurdle. We wanted to purchase pieces that reflected our style. We kept going from store to store, taking pictures, trying to match pieces together. In the end, it was too much work and we could never make a decision.

 

The Modsy Moment

After two failed runs with online design services, one happy Modsy review caught her eye

I had first tried two online interior design services. It was not successful, to say the least. We worked with designers at both but got back really poor-quality renderings that didn’t help us with anything. I’d seen Modsy on my Facebook feed, so I did a little research and read many positive reviews of the service. One in particular caught my eye, from a man who noted that it takes 10 days for the designs to be done. This made me a little nervous at first, but it turned out to be one of the highlights of the Modsy service. They took their time to create two very thoughtful concepts for my space, and that was a big differentiator for me.

How Modsy’s Renderings Helped Maria

Discovering new ideas and having the confidence to know EXACTLY what to buy

My reaction to our first renderings was a huge WOW! I had such a big happy smile on my face. I couldn’t believe that I was seeing my living room furnished in such a realistic way. Every detail of my room was there. When I showed my husband that night, he couldn’t believe that we got such great work for $69. (Then he had to remind me how much money I wasted with the other online design services.) The renderings really helped us think outside the box, and we ended up combining a couple of our designs together.

It was so great to know exactly where to go and what to ask for. While we didn’t purchase everything exactly as Modsy suggested, we found other things at the retailers they listed.

We purchased a different couch (after our entire family of four sat on a couch that was suggested and decided we wanted a wider couch) but we went with the color Modsy recommended. We also purchased the patterned area rug from the rendering. I can say we would not have been brave enough to purchase it if we hadn’t seen how it would look in our space with everything else. Likewise, we wouldn’t have thought about putting the sun mirror on the wall or adding the artwork and plant. In particular, we hadn’t thought of putting two shelving units on each side of the French doors like Modsy suggested, so that was a huge surprise, which we loved. We’re planning on purchasing those along with the lamps and the sun mirror Modsy suggested.

My Modsy Story: Overcoming Self-Doubt When Designing My New Home

Like Erin Canova, we often talk ourselves out of ideas for our spaces—until we realize we had it right the whole time.

Homeowner: Erin Canova, mom extraordinaire

Location: Sacramento, CA

Room: A tall-ceilinged den and TV room

Her Style: Contemporary Minimalist

The Backstory

Balancing a new home’s great bones with not too much decor

In our new home, we are blessed with all these incredible rooms. We have very tall ceilings, which was one of the hardest things for me to try and design around. I just had no clue how to compensate for that with the decor.  

That said, I did not want to have too much decor in the space that I would have to dust or tidy up on a regular basis. I want a minimal home that feels welcoming and homey, but also functional and that enhances our daily lives rather than creating more roadblocks.

The Design Dilemma

Knowing what she loves but not what blends together in an empty room

My biggest challenge was room cohesion—if that’s even a term. I can pick separate pieces of furniture that I like, but picking the right items that all blend well together is next to impossible for me. I started with this den and TV room because I hadn’t purchased any new furniture for it yet. It was essentially a clean slate.  

The Modsy Moment

Taking a risk that cost far less than hiring an interior designer

I first saw Modsy in a blog post, and I figured even if it was a total bust, $70 was such a reasonable price compared to what I was considering with an interior designer, which costs much much more.

Getting started was so incredibly simple that I was kind of blown away at how easy it was. I didn’t even have to clean up my space before hand!

How Modsy’s Renderings Helped Erin

She thought her idea wouldn’t work; but seeing furniture in the space reassured her it would

I was through the roof with excitement when I first saw my Modsy renderings. It was so amazing to finally see the room transform into EXACTLY what I had envisioned. It’s currently covered in random kids toys, and I just had no idea where to start; now I know exactly what to do, how to lay out the space and what items to buy.  

I was especially excited with the second Modsy layout design I was provided because I had actually thought about purchasing a sectional and placing it the same way but convinced myself it wouldn’t work and that the space would be too tight. Seeing it in the rendering showed me that with just the right size sectional I actually could divide the larger space into two zones to get the most use out of the room.

Modsy took an issue I had been stressing over for months and not only solved the issue but got me excited about tackling it going forward! I’ve felt bad about continuously changing things but my Modsy advisors assured me that it’s not a problem.

I’m still working on changing the renderings (I’m on my sixth design) to get the room just right. But I plan on buying most, if not all, the pieces detailed in the design. I also love that many of the items placed in my renderings are incredibly affordable and I can find them at my ultimate favorite retailer, Target!

My Modsy Story: Rethinking an Entire Home (Now That the Kids Are Off to College)

As a new empty nester, Lori Breningmeyer seized the moment to redo her family’s home of 19 years.

Homeowner: Lori Breningmeyer, project manager and new empty nester

Location: Tallahassee, FL

Room: Odd “Catchall” Den and College Son’s Small Bedroom

Her Style: Modern Rustic

The Backstory

The kids are all grown up, so it’s time to redecorate

My husband and I live with our dog (a whippet-lab mix from the pound) in an old 1949 house in Tallahassee, FL, that we’ve lived in for 19 years. We have two adult children who also spent most of their childhood here.

It’s important to me that my home look intentionally decorated, eclectic, and interesting. I also want it to be comfortable and inviting.

The Design Dilemma

How to take style up a notch in two odd rooms

My first project with Modsy was our den. It’s always been a “catchall” room in our home. For 10 years there was a ping pong table in the center so it was easy to just forget about it. Then my kids went to college, we got rid of the ping pong table, and I had no idea what to do with this huge odd room.

My second project was redoing my son’s room into a guest room which is the smallest bedroom in the house. It’s always been a challenge because there’s too little room in there to do anything with.

The Modsy Moment

Taking one last chance—after wasting money on three online design services

Modsy came up in my Facebook feed probably because I am constantly Googling “design advice.” I was skeptical so I ignored it the first time I saw it because my experiences with three other online design consultant services was a waste of money. But the use of the 3D tool stuck in my head as a new method that might be more successful for me.

When Modsy popped up in my feed again a week or so later, I made sure to click on it this time. When I saw the transformation of the small apartment featured in the link I clicked on I knew I had to give it a try.

When I saw how Modsy uses the actual configuration and measurements of my space and that with the 3D tool you can see how everything looks in your space, I became optimistic that this time might be different.

How Modsy’s Renderings Helped Lori

Discovering new design ideas she never considered in 19 years

My jaw literally dropped when I saw the renderings. It is MY home on the screen only with really cool interesting furnishings and decor. I was blown away with each project. My house has always looked nice, but never quite as good as I wanted it to. There were elements of it that worked, but none of the rooms were completely styled to my satisfaction until the Modsy team looked at them.

So far, I have purchased three items for the den and plan to purchase more items over time. But the small changes I’ve been able to make there without much of an investment have been really wonderful. Just rearranging the room the way the Modsy team suggested made a huge difference without purchasing a single thing. My husband came home to the new arrangement in the den and said “wow, the couch looks great there!” In 19 years, it never occurred to us to pull the couch into the middle of the room until Modsy.

And In my son’s room, moving the bed away from under the window (a design tenet that I thought was taboo to break) and purchasing the shelves from CB2 that somehow looked both less conspicuous and held more books, made a huge difference.

I now go in that room sometimes to sit and read alone and in the 19 years we’ve lived here I have never done that.  In my son’s bedroom I had this huge framed keepsake that was my father’s that I had no idea what to do with. I figured I’d just have to sacrifice a wall, but the Modsy team suggested hanging it lower on the wall and way off center so I can still hang more on that wall if I ever want to. Again, brilliant! And something I would never have thought of.

I have used the exact arrangement suggested in the two projects (den and bedroom).

Modsy has been absolutely user-friendly and the best tool I’ve found to help me decorate my home. I don’t know how you’re able to offer such a thoughtful, personalized service for such a low price, but I’m really thankful I’ve found Modsy!

And the customer service has been incredible. I’ve dealt with four people now at Modsy and each person has conveyed the attitude that my home and project is really important to them. Anytime I’ve had a question, your amazing customer service team gets back to me within hours—even on the weekend! It honestly feels like there’s a team of people there who truly care about the design of my home and my experience as a Modsy client. And all for $69! The one time I hired a “real” interior designer to come into my home and help me wasn’t nearly as effective as Modsy has been (and she was a lot more expensive!).

We’re having our kitchen and living room opened up in August and once that’s done I’ll be asking Modsy for assistance with our living room!

My Modsy Story: Finding a Solution for My Small, Awkward Living Room

We can all relate to Kevin Grieco’s “decorating paralysis” with his tiny living room. See how Modsy helped him move forward—and complete the space.

 

Homeowner: Kevin Grieco, systems engineer and IT whiz

Location: Medford, MA

Room: Tiny pass-through living room

His Style: Atomic Industrial

The Backstory

Turning 1300 Square Feet into a Home

My wife Toni (pictured above) and I live with our Corgi, Moose (also pictured above), in a small, single family house that we bought four years ago and never really ‘made a home’ due to decorating paralysis. It was gutted and refinished top to bottom so it looks fresh for a 100-year-old Colonial in Massachusetts, but at around 1300 square feet with six rooms spread across two floors, it’s a challenge to use the space efficiently. And our living room, in particular, was badly in need of some direction.

The Design Dilemma

Feeling overwhelmed (and paralyzed) by everything

Our big problem with the living room was a lack of vision. Despite the fact that we are both creative people in our own right, neither of us have ever had an eye for interior design. There is just something so challenging about conceptualizing what will be both beautiful and functional, especially in a small home where efficiency is at a premium. This “tetris” problem of figuring out the right furniture arrangement combined with our tendency to not look at decor holistically had left us feeling paralyzed and apathetic. So, our primary living space languished for years after we moved in. This was what we wanted to solve.

The Modsy Moment

When he finally had to google “interior design help oh god please help me i have no taste”

I first found out about Modsy through what I can only describe as digital flailings of desperation. I forget exactly what I googled to stumble upon Modsy, but it was something to the effect of “interior design help oh god please help me i have no taste.” Being an IT nerd and a visual person, the concept of a 3D rendering-based service immediately excited me and it was easy to convince my wife to give it a shot considering the low cost of entry compared to hiring a real-life designer.

How Modsy’s Renderings Helped Kevin

Finding and seeing the exact furniture he needed to buy, once and for all

When I first got the Modsy renderings my response contained expletives that I won’t include here. But suffice it to say that I was extremely impressed. I took screenshots of a few angles of the renderings and sent them to all my friends who had been in my living room, and they were equally dazzled.

I couldn’t believe how accurate it was and the various arrangements immediately gave us so many ideas about how we could break up our space. Being able to visually see finished layouts like that completely broke through our ‘designer’s block.’

We bought a few big, structure-defining pieces straight from the suggested products pages that the Modsy team sent us, and then added a few of our own antique and furniture store finds—something that we were able to do with relative confidence now that we had such a secure ‘grounding’ thanks to the Modsy Style team.

I must have sent 20 pages worth of wordy emails to my Modsy Style Advisor over the course of my experience, and she was so receptive and supportive of all my input every time, being both professional and personal in perfect balance. She provided me with at least three additional renderings and a dozen different decor options. I genuinely don’t think I have had a better customer service experience in my entire life.

I would recommend Modsy to anyone looking for a premium-feeling, highly personalized interior design experience for a fraction of hiring a traditional professional.

My Modsy Story: When Designing My Room Took Four Years Too Long

We’ve all been in Christine’s shoes—she’d been thinking about redoing her living room for ages but never did. Here’s how we gave her the confidence to finally do it.

Homeowner: Christine S, software engineer and mom extraordinaire

Location: Omaha, NE

Room: Awkwardly Shaped Living Room

Her Style: Mod Enthusiast

The Backstory

Hitting that “now or never” point with decorating

After four years of living with an awkward living room layout, I decided enough was enough! I had plenty of inspiration (four years’ worth, in fact) but knew I was going to need some help turning that inspiration into reality.

What was important for me in my home was for the living room to feel less awkward but be a good durable space where my family could spend a lot of time. Also, it’s an area that’s highly visible when guests come over, so I wanted it to look nice and needed space to hide a ton of toys. I wasn’t asking for too much!

The Design Dilemma

Finding ways to open up (and brighten up) the room

The biggest challenge for me was dealing with the awkward room layout. My house was built in the ’80s with this built-in cabinet on one side of the fireplace and a window on the other side.  No matter where I placed my sofa, chairs, and T.V., the room just did not flow.

Additionally, the space can feel very dark because of two very large, mature maple trees in the backyard that block the natural sunlight. I knew lightening the room up would do it wonders, but I wanted some professional help to show me the best solution.

The Modsy Moment

When all the inspiring ideas and images still didn’t solve her dilemma

Previously, I’d designed another room in my house with help from the retailer Ethan Allen. This time though, I didn’t want to feel obligated to purchase their furniture, so I began exploring other resources.

This began my extensive internet search for ideas for how to change up my living room, specifically how to help with room design and furniture placement. I came across Modsy, and then went searching for reviews of the service. I liked the pictures I saw of the room renderings, and it seemed like exactly the help I needed so I went ahead and tried it out.

It was very easy to understand how to use Modsy, and I couldn’t wait to get home and take my room pictures after I had signed up. I wouldn’t say I was skeptical, but I did wonder if I could make the end result look as good as the rendering.

 

How Modsy’s Renderings Helped Christine:

Finishing a problem room once and for all (and staying under budget)

When I got my first two renderings back, my first thought was ‘I couldn’t believe I waited four years to do this!’ Modsy’s ideas totally opened up some new possibilities for the room, like midcentury style furniture and different color palettes. I made some tweaks and swapped a few pieces of furniture for my third rendering, but didn’t take size quite into account—the armchairs I selected looked somewhat ridiculous. For my fourth rendering, my Modsy style advisor was able to add a sofa and chairs I was eyeing into my first Modsy design. I loved this layout, and decided to use this rendering as the model for my living room. Finally!

I would’ve never thought of moving the furniture in the way that Modsy had suggested. It really took into account the pre-existing conditions of my space that I couldn’t change, such as the huge fireplace, the built-in cabinet, and the awkward little window.  

This layout was essentially what influenced all my furniture choices, and I ended up buying some of the exact items shown in the rendering. But, most importantly, I kept the furniture dimensions and styles that Modsy had suggested in mind when making my purchases. Dimensions have such a huge impact on your room, and it can be so hard to visualize how a certain size sofa will work in your space. Getting to see the furniture in the room before committing to it made all the difference—that was what Modsy really helped me with the most.

I ended up with a combination of furniture and pieces from Nebraska Furniture Mart, West Elm, Wayfair and Target; I installed new carpeting (long past due) and then bought a new sofa, two armchairs, end tables, a T.V. stand, and other odds and ends. I also painted the room and the built-in cabinets (suggestions from my Modsy Style Advisor).

The room is finished now and I pretty much changed everything. I was able to do all of this for under the budget I gave Modsy at beginning of the project—I said $7,500, and it all came in right around $5,300 (not including the carpeting, but that was right at $1,000)!

My Modsy Story: Taking the Guesswork Out of Buying Furniture

buyer's remorse

Like any of us, Sara Ballentine just wanted to buy the right furniture for her first home—without the worry of making a mistake.

 

Homeowner: Sara Ballentine, first-time homeowner
Location: South Carolina
Room: Small Awkward Pass-through Room
Her Style: Mod Collector

The Backstory

Buying that perfect first home—along with all its charms and quirks

My husband and I finally took the leap and recently bought our first home. The house was built in the 1970s and had all the charms you’d expect: beautiful hardwood floors, gorgeous molding and fixtures. But with that, came a few small and awkwardly-shaped rooms.

The Design Dilemma

Making a room out of an awkward space

Our biggest conundrum was the dining room. My husband and I had visions of hosting lively dinner parties in our first home together, so we turned the formal living room (that we knew we weren’t going to use) into our dining room.

But that left the original dining room empty and without a purpose. We had no clue what to do with it! It just became this awkward, small square pass-through room in between the kitchen and the new dining room. It didn’t fit with the rest of of the rooms around it, and it didn’t make sense for it be an office since we already had one. The wasted space drove us crazy…

The Modsy Moment

Getting the right design help—when all else failed

Naturally I had been all over Houzz and Pinterest looking for home décor ideas. Finally I was on Pinterest overload and still couldn’t make any decisions around colors, spacing, style, functionality, and just decorating that one room in general. Plus, I have terrible buyer’s remorse and always end up thinking I’ve bought the wrong thing or should have kept looking before settling, which made it all even harder.

Then I discovered Modsy!

I might have first seen Modsy on Facebook, and when I realized what Modsy was, my interest was sparked. I honestly had no idea what to expect but I do remember thinking, “Well, I’ve wasted $99 before on nothing so I guess I’ll give this a try!”—knowing then that it was either going to be amazing and I would do my entire house or it would be terrible and I’d learn my lesson.

It was extremely easy getting started. I had no issues signing up or uploading pictures. I got to include some notes, which the Modsy team incorporated into the room rendering as best they could, and the final rendering was done in 7 or 8 days. It allowed me the opportunity to visualize all the furniture in place so I didn’t have to go through all that doubt and buyer’s regret.

What Modsy’s Renderings Did for Sara

Seeing new furniture (and arrangement) possibilities

This small space was the second room I did on Modsy. The first batch of renderings looked nice but they were not what I had envisioned or hoped for the space. I told the Modsy Style Team that I didn’t know what to do, and I asked them to try again…

And then, I got a rendering for this beautiful breakfast nook/sitting area that flowed so nicely between the kitchen and dining room. I was in awe when I got the renderings back for the room. I was shocked and so happy and immediately thought “You’ve got to be kidding! This freaking awesome!” It was great for a quick bite in the morning, for coffee, or for drinks before dinner! It was perfect!

From there, I really wanted to incorporate a banquette in the breakfast nook to make it more casual feeling—they’re surprisingly hard to find! Modsy found a perfect one from West Elm without even trying—it was slender and not too formal, and I was in heaven when I saw that design for the first time. Unfortunately that corner piece was out of stock, so they found a couple more options for me. I ended up settling on a bright-blue velvet one from Anthropologie (Honestly, I think I asked for 9 different renderings for the space!).

buyer's remorse

As I said, I did another room on Modsy before. In the formal dining room I knew I wanted a buffet but had always imagined it along one of the big blank walls. When I got my Modsy rendering back, the idea was to have it on the opposite wall, between the two windows. I know it sounds anticlimactic but this simple change completely transformed my space! It totally opened up the room and I ended up purchasing that exact buffet and putting it right where the rendering had it. Not to mention, I had looked at West Elm’s buffets up and down and was just going to get a plain simple one. The one Modsy found for me was more eclectic and had some texture and color, and I never would’ve chosen it without them. I have it now and it’s great!

I’m more or less sticking with all the original rendering ideas from Modsy. I’m leaving out some stuff so it doesn’t get too cluttered but other than that I plan on setting up my spaces as designed. And so far, I’ve bought two of the pieces in my Modsy renderings—more to come, though!

My Modsy Story: Making the Move from City to Suburban Home

Making the Move from City to Suburban Home

When her IKEA furniture no longer served her family and her new home, a New Yorker took matters into her own hands with Modsy.

The Backstory

Taking the Leap into Suburban Living

I bought a new home two years ago when we moved from the city to a more suburban area. My family and I were living in a modern high-rise apartment and our new home is a 1931 Tudor house that has been lovingly restored.

The Design Dilemma

Figuring Out Out-of-Place Furniture

Like most people, the IKEA furniture we had was good for apartment living, but it didn’t work in our new home.

For starters, we now had 3,000 square feet of space to fill and all of our furniture from the old apartment could fit in the living room in the new house. We were ready to invest in good furniture, but didn’t want to buy the wrong pieces and make a costly mistake.

Adding to that, our new house’s architecture is very formal, but we’re not formal people. It was hard to find furniture that both agreed with the interior of the home and our personalities—not to mention visualize it actually in our space! I was completely overwhelmed.

“I didn’t want to settle with a set of matching furniture but I was ready for the house just to be done.”

The Modsy Moment

Nothing Was Working—Not Even Hiring an Interior Designer

We had been in interior design paralysis for a year; after one year living in the house, I had 100 Pinterest boards and spent countless hours (days) curating them to no avail. So I finally decided to hire an interior designer to help move the design process along. I saw layout ideas, some furniture recommendations, and even bought two rugs, but I still had a hard time imagining these pieces arranged in my actual home.

I read about Modsy on People.com and decided to try it. I took some photos, filled out the Style Quiz, and picked out furniture recommended to me based on my style. A week later, I got the first 3D renderings of my living room back and I was blown away by how real they looked. It was awesome! Modsy allowed me to see designs staged in our actual space, and it made all the difference.

The Final Deciding Factors:

Adding those personal touches

After playing around with a few renderings, I came up with more ideas that I wanted to try. I have a three year-old daughter, who loves to climb on things, and Modsy helped me create a play area for her. I also had my eye on a statement sofa, but was unsure if it would work with my formal space. Finally, I was struggling to decide if I should hang curtains above my beautiful stained glass windows or not.

With the Modsy 3D rendering I could literally see these ideas come to life in my home. This gave me the confidence to buy pieces I will love. Now there are a few more things I need to get my husband to agree on, which, for the first time might be easy since he can see how amazing they would look.

Now I use the hours I spent curating Pinterest boards to do things I actually enjoy, like spending time with my family, cooking, and traveling. I am thankful to Modsy for helping me pull the trigger and get on with my life.

With Modsy I tried on a statement sofa and found the perfect chairs to match.
I was able to create a play area for my active three year-old. The best part, it's not a total eye-sore!
