My Modsy Story: Designing Multiple Rooms From Scratch

The Design Dilemma

Gina and her husband had enjoyed living in a single-bedroom apartment in New York City for several years. But by early 2020, with two quickly growing toddlers, they knew they’d have to relocate their family to a larger space sooner rather than later. However, the couple couldn’t decide if they wanted to move to a larger apartment in the city or relocate to a home in the suburbs.

Little did they know that the onset of COVID-19 in March of that year would be the deciding factor in what kind of home they’d move to. “Our friend offered her vacation home to us to use until the situation in the city improved,” Gina says. “We quickly realized we loved living in a house together. So, that summer we decided to build a four-bedroom house”

Soon the house was being built and the entire family was excited to be entering a new phase of life together. But for Gina, the responsibility of finding the right layout and decor for several empty rooms went from fun to overwhelming in no time.

“After looking at tons of inspiration images on Pinterest, Instagram, Houzz, and Google, I became extremely overwhelmed with all of the choices. I reached a point of interior design paralysis,” she says.

In particular, Gina worried about creating cohesive designs for the family’s new great room and family room. “Our new house is very open-concept—the lower level and great room were very challenging for me to envision,” Gina says. “I desperately needed help figuring out what furniture to buy and how to lay it all out!”

The Modsy Moment

Once Gina began her design project with Modsy, her interior design anxiety and paralysis were transformed into a new set of feelings. “I experienced a mixture of relief and excitement as I started working with our designer,” Gina says. “I was relieved to utilize an expert’s guidance instead of piecing together the design myself. And it was so exciting to see the designs come to life in 3D. For a few days after I received the first 3D designs, I just pretended I was living inside of them—they looked so real, it was hardly a stretch.”

“Working with Modsy turned a stressful situation into an enjoyable experience,” says Gina. “I loved working with our designer, Caitlin, on three room designs: our open-concept lower level, our main floor great room, and our home office.”

The Real Results

Now that the family has moved into their new home, they are enjoying its designs together. Gina especially is reassured that she can always turn to Modsy for design visualization and expert guidance for whatever design project life throws her way.

“Modsy really helped me get a handle on how each room could be well laid out and functional for my family,” she says. “Everyone is so happy in our space, and friends and family that visit are impressed with the design.”

After such a good experience, Modsy is becoming an ongoing source of help. “We’re already using Modsy again to finish our master bedroom and then kids’ rooms next year!”
