Nicole knew she wanted to do something special with her entryway foyer—but she wasn’t sure how to bring her ideas to life in a way that had a cohesive look and feel.

When we moved into our new house, we had almost no furniture. Our space was kind of sad and empty—but we knew it had great potential! We just weren’t sure what to do with it. We were especially struggling with the entryway area right off the front door. We didn’t want it to be just a large entryway foyer, but we also didn’t want it to be a sitting room. But other than those two options, we didn’t know what else to do with the space!
The Design Dilemma
My husband and I have both been WFH since COVID started and we wanted to make our entryway into a space we both loved since we’re there all the time now. I started digging around Pinterest and came across some great ideas for at-home coffee bars. I’m a food blogger, so I liked the idea of having my passion for good food and drinks inspire this space. The only problem was I couldn’t visualize how the space could come together and I felt overwhelmed by the thought of sourcing all the products and creating a cohesive look and feel on my own. So, I turned to Google, and that’s when I found Modsy!

The Modsy Moment
I was completely blown away when I got my first designs. I was so excited that I immediately texted them to a few friends! I loved how our designer sent us some layouts to consider for our “coffee shop” before picking out all the pieces that would go in the space. That extra step gave us clarity on what we wanted and needed for the room.

The Real Results
I’m so happy with our new space. Our designer did an awesome job! I never would have been able to make our little coffee shop on my own—at least not without some major headaches! And Modsy lets you easily buy everything at once, which saved me so much time and energy.

I can’t tell you what it means to have a space that feels like a daily getaway just a few feet away from my bedroom door. Having an at-home coffee shop/office is really helpful especially during COVID when daily rituals have become so important to creating a sense of security. We feel so blessed to be in this home and are so happy we used Modsy, which we also used to help with our living room and dining room designs because we enjoyed the experience so much—we basically never want to leave any of these spaces!
