After moving cross-country, Omar was ready to trade in his big box store furniture for a grown-up apartment design.
Homeowner: Omar M, Marketing & Business Development
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Room: Entire Apartment
His Style: Modern Minimalist
I was ready for a new start in Los Angeles after spending 5 years in NYC. My new space is a lot larger than my old apartment so not only did I need more furniture, I also wanted to update my style to create a space that was welcoming, mature, and great for hosting. On top of that, I also wanted to make sure that the apartment design maximized my space and highlighted my new view.
The Design Dilemma
I really hate shopping and can’t visualize ideas in my home so all the furniture I had came from the same store. It looked like something out of a catalog – but in a bad way.
So when I moved it all into my new space, the rooms felt so bland. They were functional but didn’t have a lot of personality. I was totally overwhelmed with no clue how or where to start with a design I’d actually enjoy.
The Modsy Moment
I knew I needed help but I’d never worked with an interior designer or online design service before. So when I saw an ad for Modsy on Instagram I’ll admit, at first I was skeptical. I wasn’t sure that a complete stranger could bring my “vision” to life. And how could they when I didn’t even know what my vision was myself?
I was also nervous because the apartment was new to both me and the designer so I wasn’t convinced that everything would fit and/or look like how it did in the 3D designs.
How Modsy’s Designs Helped Omar
All of my worries were completely put to rest when I saw my Modsy designs for the first time. I was amazed! The 3D designs really impressed me, especially the living room/home office and dining room.
I loved all of the options presented! And my designer was patient, flexible, and honest and I really liked working with her.
The Real Results
My apartment looks amazing now. All of the rooms look great and they mirror my final designs to a tee. I ended up purchasing pretty much everything through Modsy, and the process was super seamless and efficient.
Moving across the country is stressful but Modsy made the ordering and delivery process really easy. I didn’t have to take any extra steps and I also checked a few items and confirmed that Modsy definitely gave me the best price on all of them.
My new rooms feel so comfortable and mature and it’s a perfect space for hosting – it’s finally the grown-up space I’ve been wanting!
