Rachael was excited to be living in a new house she loved. But needed help finding a design that was as beautiful as her new space. See how Modsy helped her bring house and home together with a winning design.

Location: Apex, NC
Rooms: Open Living Room & Dining Room
Her Style: Modern Rustic
I recently purchased a newly constructed house with an open floor-plan. Because the living-dining area layout was so open I wanted to make sure the design for the spaces would work together. In the past, I’ve worked with designers which inspired me to want a more polished look in my own home!

The Design Dilemma
I was excited about moving into my brand new space and really investing in a beautiful, polished design. I knew the overall look I was going for and that I wanted to incorporate unique pieces from different sources into the final look. I’d used blue and grey as the color scheme in my old house, and I knew I wanted this one to have a more neutral palette that complimented the space.
But when it came to actually designing the space, it felt like a huge job and I was just too busy with work. I had no time to shop for furniture, let alone figure out how to pull all the pieces together into a cohesive whole.
The Modsy Moment
I was actually going to hire an interior designer at first but then I came across Modsy by way of a Google search. The investment to try it was pretty low and I thought why not give it a shot first? From the ads I read, it seemed like I could get the same results with less time and money so I was excited to try it out. Plus, I like being involved in the work but really wanted a designer’s guidance so it seemed like the perfect solution.
How Modsy’s Designs Helped Rachael
When my first Modsy designs came back I loved them immediately. The design experience was so easy and really fun! Everyone that I interacted with was super helpful and my designer, Francesca, is really talented. She excels at this process and is so personable. She added furniture and room accessories in a way that filled the space nicely. It looks fantastic and it never would have occurred to me to use the space the way she did.
Also, there were certain items I needed help with, like a cabinet that I wasn’t sure how to incorporate into the room. Francesca knew exactly how to manage it! I feel very lucky I got to work with a designer who was such an excellent fit, and who was able to nail my tastes from the start.
Modsy also made the shopping process super easy with one-click ordering from tons of vendors. The follow-up and assistance they provided were awesome! They even price-matched a chair for me and helped me when one of my chairs was damaged in shipping. I am super happy with their customer service!
The Real Results
The Modsy design I went with captured exactly what I was looking for. It was like my designer saw inside my brain on the first try, I couldn’t believe it! I purchased almost all of the items from my design and Francesca helped me design around two pieces that I already owned.
Overall, my living room and dining room are better than I could have imagined. There is no way I could have done it all on my own, but it still feels essentially like me. Thanks, Modsy!
