Shortly after moving into their house 10 years ago, Rebekah and her husband Jack had their first son. They had another son three years later and never had the time to really personalize their home office space.
Between work and our growing family, we were unfortunately left with little time to invest in our home!
“Between work and our growing family, we were unfortunately left with little time to invest in our home office! With the pandemic this year, we were finally able to devote some time to spurcing things up.”
The Design Dilemma
Spending more time at home this year not only made it evident that it was time for some updates—but also provided time and motivation to do it. But Rebekah and Jack weren’t quite sure where to start.
“We know what we like, but we were afraid to make a mistake by putting things together that did not belong. As a result, we did nothing for quite a while.”
“I wanted to create a home office that was functional for Rebekah and Jack but also felt personal and relaxing. We honed in on their style and I gave them a design that would be simple to implement.”– McKenzie, Rebekah + Jack’s Modsy Designer
The Modsy Moment
Knowing they needed some expert help with designing their office, Rebekah and Jack turned to Modsy–and were so excited with the transformation they saw in their designs.
Our first reaction with all the office designs was how well our style was captured with so little direction.
“Our first reaction to the home office designs was how well our style was captured with so little direction. It was like our designer could see what was in our heads and just brought it to life in our space!”
“I love that Jack and Rebekah were so open to pops of color and texture through the accent wall, rug, and other decor. Those elements really give this office space a cozy and layered feel! I added a wall shelf for them to layer family photos and personalize the space. And adding some leather chairs opposite the desk created a comfy reading nook where Rebekah’s kids could curl up with a book while she worked!”–McKenzie, Rebekah + Jack’s Modsy Designer
The Real Results
Rebekah’s designer created a space where their family could both get stuff done and relax—while also offering plenty of storage space. It’s now a space in which they love spending time.
Our favorite part of using Modsy is how good our design makes us feel.

“I wanted to make sure to give Rebekah and Jack plenty of function and comfort in their home office design. I focused on scoring items for work and relaxation while also being family-friendly.”–McKenzie, Rebekah + Jack’s Modsy Designer
