Living in New York City, Lauren was excited to start a life all her own in her first studio apartment. She just didn’t know how to design a small space that reflected her new independent lifestyle.

The Backstory

I live in New York City, where the COVID pandemic brought reduced rent prices, so when the lease on my shared apartment ended in October, I knew it was the right time to move—for both my COVID concerns and a growing desire to claim my own space.

The Design Dilemma

I decided to move into a studio–but I was clueless about designing a small space. I didn’t know what decor or layout would make the room flow. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to decide on an overall theme or make sure all my furniture pieces physically fit in the space.

The Modsy Moment

My sister and mom knew I needed assistance, and after looking for New York interior designers they treated me to a Modsy design package for a housewarming gift. I immediately fell in LOVE with the Modsy iOS app and was so excited to get started designing my space.

The first thing I noticed when I got my Modsy designs was the vivid color palette—it was exactly what I wanted and added that “zest” that completely transformed my plain apartment.. I couldn’t have found the right color balance on my own because I get nervous taking risks with interior design—that’s why I’m so happy my designer took my suggestion and created a bold but doable design for me. Seeing my design in 3D meant I knew everything would work together perfectly.

The Real Results

Before Modsy, I had an empty studio where I felt too timid to decorate alone! NOW I LOVE BEING HOME. I recently got over COVID and having a space that reflected my style was really empowering—it helped me feel stronger and more confident during a stressful moment in my life. It just brings me more joy than any other place I’ve lived and I’m so glad I took a risk with my colorful design and tried Modsy.
