The Design Dilemma
Andie and her husband recently downsized from a 3,000-square-foot house to a much smaller 1,450-square-foot home. While they loved the idea of having less space to manage and upkeep, they quickly realized that the furniture from their previous home was simply too large for their new space.
“Once we put the furniture from our previous home in our new open living/dining room space, we realized it was too big,” Andie said. “Beyond that, we realized we were just ready for a fresh look in our new space.” But that wasn’t all they needed to figure out. In this smaller house, Andie’s home office would now simply be a corner of their living room rather than a separate space, which further complicated their design needs.
Andie and her husband weren’t sure how to tackle all of these design needs on their own. “We all have our gifts, but decorating from scratch is not ours!” said Andie. She knew they would need help designing their new space and finding the right furniture to fit their open living/dining room. “The last thing we wanted to do was spend money on furniture and accessories that wouldn’t look good once we got them in the space.”
The Modsy Moment
After hearing about the online interior design services offered through Modsy and reading some reviews, Andie purchased a design package. “I signed up and had my consultation with my designer, Erin, before I even told my husband!” Andie said. “Once he saw our initial designs, he was completely on board.”
“Erin really helped us hone in on our style,” said Andie. “We loved both of her designs. My first reaction was, ‘Why didn’t I do this sooner??’ I was so excited—Erin was just spot on in the designs she created for us.”
And Andie said that seeing their space in 3D was a game-changer in the design process. “It assured us the furniture we bought would fit the space, giving us so much confidence in our purchases.”
Their designer helped them land on a new look for their space and find the right pieces to give them all the functionality and style they craved for their new home.
And through the Modsy design process, their new space came together much more quickly than they anticipated. “Seeing the space completely designed helped my husband and I realize we could create a beautiful, cohesive room fairly quickly—as opposed to piecemealing it together over months or years,” Andie said. “We needed help, and Modsy was the answer!”
The Real Results
Today, their space is nearly finished and Andie says it’s been fun to see their 3D designs come together in real life.
“It feels so amazing to now have a design that works in our new home,” said Andie. “I work from home, so I spend a ton of time in this room. Having it be so functional, comfortable, and attractive has done wonders for my productivity and overall emotional well-being.”
But it’s not just Andie that loves the new designs. Her husband said that “Modsy is the best money we’ve spent in a long time.”
With their new layout and furniture, Andie says that their new house now feels like a home.
