My Modsy Story – Downsizing our Space, and Up-Leveling our Style

downsizing our home

After downsizing from a single family home, Leann and her husband were ready to invest in a design they loved.

Homeowner: Leann M, Executive Assistant

Room: Living Room

Her Style: Rustic Warmth

The Backstory

After downsizing, this couple was ready for a design change

Four years ago my husband and I decided it was time to downsize. So we made the move from our single family home into a townhouse, which was the perfect size for just the two of us.

But we soon discovered that our old furniture wasn’t going to be as easy to move as we’d thought. The pieces we had were just too big and didn’t fit well in our new space.

We finally had the funds to make a redesign happen, so we decided it was time for us to make a change.

The Design Dilemma

A tricky living room layout threw her for a loop

When I started thinking about a design for our new space, I realized I had no idea where to start. Our new living room is an odd shape and I was at a total loss when it came to finding a layout and furniture that worked.

“I wanted it to be the best. But actually figuring out how to do that was overwhelming.”

Additionally, since I knew we wanted to make an investment in our new design, I wanted it to be the best. But actually figuring out how to do that was overwhelming.

Diving headfirst into a new design solution

Actually, I first heard about Modsy on a podcast, Young House Love, and decided to give it a go. I really wasn’t skeptical at all – the process seemed pretty straightforward and the cost was so reasonable I figured that even if it didn’t work it was worth a try.

When I got my first set of designs back I was so impressed with how they were able to recreate our living room in 3D. I loved the suggestions but wanted to see a few more ideas.

My designer was great and showed me that if I increased my budget slightly I could get the look I wanted. She also encouraged me to purchase pieces over time, which I thought was really nice.

How Modsy’s Designs Helped Leann

Discovering ideas that highlighted their new home’s features

I loved that my design was so cohesive with our actual space. We have a large brick fireplace and rustic barn door, which my Modsy designer incorporated into our design. We purchased pieces we never would have thought to on our own, and the results are amazing.

Moving the television to another location was also such a good idea that we never would have thought of on our own. The new location makes our space feel so uncluttered and we love it.

I also loved the fact that I was able to purchase all my new furniture in one cart with exclusive discounts through Modsy. I was not prepared for the amazing follow-up from Modsy on the status and delivery of our items. It was so nice to hear from the Modsy team, who continued to check in on us to make sure we were happy with the deliveries.

The unexpectedly easy way she brought it all to life

Now I think our space looks amazing. It feels so open and light, and both my husband and I LOVE the new look.

“Modsy exceeded each and every one of my expectations and made downsizing so easy.”

From taking the style quiz to seeing my 3D designs, Modsy exceeded each and every one of my expectations and made downsizing so easy. I don’t usually feel so pleased with a choice, but I am so happy that I decided to try Modsy.

We now have quality furniture, in an extremely functional living room layout, all in a design style that fits us perfectly. What more could you ask for? Thanks Modsy!
