When Britt moved her family and business across the country, she was determined to make the transition as smooth as possible. But an awkward shared living room/office area presented a major challenge.

The Backstory

My husband and I recently moved from Portland, Ore. to Scottsdale, Ariz. We’re co-owners of a children’s clothing brand called Bunny Knots and I work from home—which meant I had to get our combined living room/home office designed right away. I needed to be able to shift back to focusing on our company after the move while also creating a cozy space for us to settle into our new home.

The Design Dilemma

We actually have other living areas in the house, but because this room is right off our entryway and would double as my workspace, I wanted to make sure we found a good layout and design for it right away. Unfortunately, the room is long and narrow and none of our furniture worked for the space, so we needed to design it from scratch. But I was having a hard time finding a layout that would work for the room and make it function as a place where I could focus during the day and relax with my husband and kids at night. No matter what I did, the room still felt small, dark, and unusable—I really didn’t think any layout was going to work!

The Modsy Moment

I freaked out—in a good way—the instant I saw our room in 3D. It was like my designer took every wish I’d had for the room and brought each one to life. I was so impressed by the different “zones” she created for space—a stunning office area that was distinguished from the rest of the space by a dark accent wall and a beautiful conversation area that fit perfectly in the narrow room and looked so cozy. She tied the two areas together with furniture styles and a neutral color palette that feels so at home in the Arizona desert.

The Real Results

Now that our Modsy project is complete, this oddly shaped room that once felt so dark is now the bright heart of our home! I felt immense relief when we got our designs, and now I feel so much excitement when I’m in this room. It’s a space my family loves to relax in and where I feel inspired to work. It’s a feeling of life-changing contentedness that we can all enjoy this space together. I’m just so grateful we got it from using Modsy!
