Klara upsized to a new home but she didn’t have any time to design it. Instead of living out of boxes for months, here’s how she found a quick and easy way to make her new place feel like home.
Homeowner: Klara N, Marketing Manager
Location: Glenview, IL
Room: Living/Dining Room, Basement Family Room
Her Style: Refined Modern
My family and I recently bought a new home that was larger and better suited for our needs. Our previous home was much smaller so we had a lot more space to fill this time. I didn’t want to feel like we were living in an empty house, so I wanted to get it designed as quickly as possible!

The Design Dilemma
But between my job and family duties I had zero time to think about how to decorate our new space. Even though I love home design, I was too busy to go to furniture stores and spend time browsing for inspiration.

It was important to me to make this house beautiful and make sure that every room felt really put-together and professionally designed. I wanted to pick the right accessories and furniture to get a cohesive look without every room feeling like a hodgepodge of random stuff. And while I really wanted to be involved in the work, my busy schedule made it impossible. I needed help!

The Modsy Moment
I saw an ad for Modsy on Facebook and thought it sounded like a great idea! I honestly wasn’t exactly sure what I would get back, but I was willing to give it a shot. It seemed like it could be just what I needed to easily and quickly make my new house beautiful.
I had some ideas for the style and design but didn’t have a clear picture of exactly what I wanted so I loved that Modsy offered me the ability to request changes and alter my designs as much as I wanted.
I was hoping it would be a quicker, more affordable version of working with a designer in-person, which was exactly what I needed.

How Modsy’s Designs Helped Klara
And as it turned out, my Modsy designs were amazing right from the start. I instantly fell in love with designs for both my living/dining room and basement family room. I was so impressed that I showed them to everyone!
“I loved how they suggested items so I didn’t have to do any of the legwork – It was perfect for helping me visualize my home in a new way!”
I asked for two fairly different versions of each room in order to stretch my thinking about what I could do with the spaces. They both looked so great in my space as a complete look that I wanted to buy them right away.

I also really enjoyed that Modsy let me make unlimited changes to my rooms. This helped me fine tune the designs I liked instead of starting from scratch or going with design options I didn’t 100% love. I got to check out a few different layouts and pick my favorite. And I got so excited every time I got an email notification that my new designs were ready!
The Real Results
Modsy helped turn my house from an empty space into a beautiful home. The space looks amazing and I purchased almost all of the items that my designer suggested. I can’t even express what a relief it was to do it all online, including shopping from multiple brands in one place. I never would have found time to do all of this on my own!

Ordering furniture was so easy, and I think that was actually the best part of the experience for me. One order, one point of contact, and great communication on when I could expect my items to arrive. I was dreading having to shop and buy furniture from different stores and deal with a bunch of different customer service issues. Modsy made it all super easy.
All in all, Modsy saved me tons of time and money and also helped me with ideas for my space that I never would have come up with on my own. Thanks Modsy!
