After working internationally for years, Gina decided it was time to lay down roots. She just didn’t know how to bring her worldly style and her new home together.

Her Style: Rustic Warmth
After working abroad for many years, I got a job back home in the states. I’d always loved traveling and considered myself a bit of a nomad. But at a certain point, the globe-trotting made me feel up-rooted.
I was ready to set down roots and create a home that really reflected my tastes and interests.
Though the cities I was living in felt exciting, every apartment felt the same. They all had the same nondescript corporate apartment feel. I was ready to set down roots and create a home that really reflected my tastes and interests. The only problem was I’d been living in pre-furnished places for so long I didn’t know what my style was anymore, let alone how to bring it to life in the cute new house I’d bought.
The Design Dilemma
Since I’d been living in pre-furnished places, I didn’t have any furniture of my own. Plus, my new house was bigger than the places I’d been living in for the past few years, so there was a lot of space to fill. I really didn’t know where to start or what would work with my new space.
I knew I wanted to fill up my walls with art and photos from my travels, but I had absolutely no how to arrange my wall art!

The Modsy Moment
I think I heard about Modsy through Instagram. I remember being really excited about seeing my space in 3D and “trying on” different designs for my living room. I knew that seeing my space in 3D would be especially helpful for figuring out how I should hang the art in my room.

How Modsy Helped Gina
There were so many ideas that I loved—I wish I could try everything and have a different living room look for each day of the week. But seeing the different design versions was the next best thing!
It was so amazing seeing my designs when they arrived in my inbox.
My Modsy designer was so great, and she found art from the Modsy catalog that looks similar to what I have for my space. I can’t tell you how helpful this was, not only did she select the right furniture for my home she also showed me great ways to hang the art in my place. Being able to see exactly how to arrange my wall art was a total lifesaver.
The Real Results
I’m just so happy that Modsy was able to help me select furniture that goes with my art. The pieces they picked draw out the colors perfectly and really let each piece shine. It’s like they built a bridge between my exciting former life as a traveler and my new life as someone who’s putting down roots and building a home! I’m so glad to have arrived at this final destination.
