Lindsay and her husband had a bold vision for their new family home. They just didn’t have the design skills to bring that vision to life on their own—so they decided to give virtual interior design a try.
Homeowner: Lindsay B., Stay-at-home mom
Spaces: Living-Dining Room
My Style: Modern
Lindsay and her family were excited to move into a new house and fill it with joyful memories and decor. But they were a bit overwhelmed at the thought of filling the space.
“When my husband and I moved into our dream house, we were so excited to make it our home. We knew we wanted our living-dining room to be a comfortable yet stylish hangout for us and the kids. We both imaged a space full of high-contrast color, with clean mid-century-modern lines, and a dash of stylish whimsy. But besides an heirloom dining room set, we were furnishing the space from scratch.”

The Design Dilemma
They knew that they wanted to go bold with their design—but they struggled to find a cohesive look for their space.
“We both love bold colors and unique mid-century-modern pieces, but we are clueless about layout and struggle to make things feel cohesive. I was worried that if we were left to our own devices, our home would end up looking more like a college dorm room than the curated space we envisioned—which is something we’ve run into before. We needed help making our house the home I knew it could be. I’d heard about Modsy, so we decided to give the service a try.”

“Lindsay’s biggest challenge for the space was creating something that felt really fun while still being refined.” –Cassie, Lindsay’s Modsy Designer
The Modsy Moment
Working with their designer, they got a playful color scheme tempered by tasteful mid-century-modern-inspired decor.
“We were completely awestruck when we saw our 3D design for the first time—so much so that our jaws dropped. Our Modsy designer, Cassie, understood what we wanted for the space even more than we did. She gathered a few of our stray thoughts and turned them into a magazine-worthy functional living space that felt so cohesive.

“The furniture she selected went perfectly with our heirloom dining set and the colors she chose truly brought the space to life. The living room area included the most spectacular rug; I have never seen a better rug in my life! It was a magical moment to see the potential my raw space had. And that potential even included a pink accent wall!”
“I wanted to capture Lindsay’s joyfulness in her designs, so I chose unexpected wall color pairings (pale pink in the living area and rich forest green in the dining area) and then I grounded these colors by tying them into the decor. I kept the furniture classic but added in eclectic pillows, rugs, artwork, and accessories.” –Cassie, Lindsay’s Modsy Designer
The Real Results
Now that their home is coming together IRL, they have a design that lives up to their expectations for the space and provides a joyful feeling for their family.
“Before using Modsy, we thought our space had a lot of promise and design potential, but we didn’t know how to deliver on that promise on our own. As more and more items arrive from Modsy and our virtual design becomes a reality, I can feel our home radiate happiness—something I had not planned on. This colorful and chic space is beloved by our entire family. Even the dog seems happier in it!”
