Her Style: Rustic Warmth
Three years ago my family and I moved into a new house. The large living room had no furniture and the pieces I bought just didn’t work. We never used the living room, because I couldn’t figure out how to make it cozy.
But, it wasn’t until I visited a neighbor’s house that I realized how much I needed a space that my family and I could truly enjoy. She had a beautiful living room with the same floor plan as me but her space felt more finished and inviting. Meanwhile, my living room still felt bleak and lacked the warmth and design it needed to feel like home. I knew deep down I needed a change.

The Design Dilemma
Even though I knew I needed to change my living room to a space my family would enjoy, I couldn’t find the time. My husband and I both work full-time and have 3 young kids. Between, traveling for work, kiddo activities, and finding time for friends and family… The task of pulling together a room just seemed too daunting.
On top of all that, our living room has two wide entrances and is connected to my kids’ playroom, which made it extra difficult to design. To me, these seemed like two completely different spaces and I didn’t know how to lay-out my furniture to make them work. Honestly, I didn’t even know what size furniture to use or what style would look best. I wasn’t sure about colors or patterns either… All that is to say pulling a new room together seemed like too big of a task for me to tackle without any help.

The Modsy Moment
Around that time I remember seeing ads for Modsy on Facebook. At first, I was totally skeptical of the service. I thought “It’s a Facebook ad—can you trust it?” It was the customer stories, like this one, that sealed the deal and I decided to give the process a try.
How Modsy Helped Andrea
My designer was so responsive to my requests along the way—each design she put together got me closer to what I wanted. Plus her design knowledge totally put my mind at ease so I didn’t feel stressed about the design process.
The ability to see the different design options helped me understand what I really liked for my space. I had NO idea that I would end up loving the mid-century modern look the best—MIND BLOWN! It only took a few revisions before I was 100% happy with my look.
The Real Results
Modsy totally changed my perceptions about using an online service. Their great design work sold me in no time. Plus their order concierge service made sure I got the best deals on my furniture. It’s hard to believe it only took a small investment to save a lot of money. With the savings I made purchasing through Modsy I feel like the service paid for itself.
Now, not only do I LOVE my new living room, every single person that sees it loves it too! It pulls people together. It’s so cozy and comfortable we enjoy it daily!
In the wake of everything that is happening with COVID-19 I keep thinking about our Modsy design. I couldn’t be more grateful for this cozy living room while we take shelter in place. It brings me comfort and joy to have a dedicated space I can use with my family on a daily basis. It’s almost like we created extra square footage in the house! Remember if your space isn’t functional, you won’t use it and right now we need to use every single square foot we can while we’re home daily!
