The Design Dilemma
Olympia is many things—a busy consultant for nonprofits, a wine connoisseur, and a mother of three. But she’s not an interior design expert. However, as her sons Cash and Max entered middle school, she realized it was time to convert their small bedroom into something a little more grown-up and functional. Between her busy work schedule and lack of design knowledge, she struggled to create a practical layout where her sons could both relax and do school work in their room.
“Before we started our design journey, this room had gone ignored,” Olympia explains. “The room was an empty box with two rather child-like twin beds shoved in the corner.”
However, she knew that things in the space would have to change with the new school year fast approaching. “I needed to transform a space that was mostly for sleeping into a multi-functional room where they could do school work, relax, and play Xbox”.
Olympia says she even “cut out pieces of paper to replicate Max and Cash’s furniture to figure out the right layout!” Then, realizing that there had to be an easier option that could help with the room’s design, she Googled “virtual interior design” and found Modsy.
The Modsy Moment
Olympia says both she and her sons were blown away by the first two designs they received from their designer. “The first layout was something I would have never imagined alone and I was really impressed with it. But the second design was perfect for my boys,” she explains. “When I showed them the design they actually thought it was a photo and that I decorated their room overnight! The designs were just that life-like.”
Max and Cash liked how the design gave them each their own side of the room and how the decor felt more grown-up. Olympia was impressed by how the designer opened up the space by adding hanging storage and a wall desk. And all three of them were crazy about the blue accent wall!
The Real Results
Now that the project is complete Olympia and her sons couldn’t be happier with the room. “Modsy provided me with a practical and beautiful design for my son’s room that we are all excited to show off. The whole design experience made me feel proud of what I could accomplish while designing from my sofa.”
