Sean made the move from a cramped New York City apartment to an open loft space. He welcomed the chance to spread out a bit but struggled to fill the blank canvas with a design that made it feel like home.
Homeowner: Sean G.
Space: Open Living-Dining Room
My Style: Rustic Traveler
I am a single guy living in NYC who recently moved from a small apartment to this large loft space. I was excited about the extra room and the opportunity to update my home’s style. From a design perspective, I know what I like and what I don’t like, but in my new apartment, I found myself drawing a blank when it came to creating a cohesive look.
The Design Dilemma
I’d brought some furniture I liked with me when I moved, but in terms of what I wanted for the whole space—how I wanted it to feel—it was like working with a blank canvas. And, boy, that blank canvas felt daunting! I needed help creating a cool, modern, clean space that was both comfortable and functional.

The Modsy Moment
I was really excited to see what my space would look like in 3D, and my Modsy designs didn’t disappoint. Sometimes it is hard to visualize how a design will actually look and how everything will fit in together, but Modsy’s 3D renderings are amazingly realistic and made me feel confident that the designs would work in my space. The designs also captured the comfortable and practical vibe I wanted for the loft space—incorporating the minimalist, uncluttered Scandinavian style I love.
The Real Results
I love seeing my Modsy designs taking shape IRL. I think interior design is one of the last things that a single guy living in NYC thinks of for his apartment but it makes such a huge difference. I’d recommend Modsy to everyone. My apartment designs make the place so much more comfortable and “homey.” It’s great to have a design that shows off the uniqueness of my NYC apartment.
