With a new job keeping her busy, Stacy didn’t have time to design her new home. Here’s how she used online home design to take the work off her hands.

Room: Family Room
Her Style: Refined Rustic
I’d just moved into a new house in Philadelphia and was excited about having a gorgeous new home! It had so much open space, a working fireplace, and windows overlooking the beautiful backyard. I fell in love with it right away.
I felt like finding the right house was a huge success – now I just needed to figure out how to fill it with furniture and turn it into a home.

The Design Dilemma
My new home was the ideal space for me but I just couldn’t picture what to do with it! I don’t have much of an eye for design, especially starting from scratch in a brand new place.
And I knew I had my work cut out for me because I wasn’t bringing any furniture from my last apartment. On top of that, I was also starting a new job and had zero time to think through the design and shop for furniture.

I was at a loss for where I should even start. There was so much to love about the space but it also presented some unique challenges. The windows and door to the backyard took up a lot of wall space and I had to figure out how to arrange furniture around the fireplace in the center of the room.
The thought of planning it all myself, shopping for individual items, and getting everything to come together the way I wanted was completely overwhelming. I needed help!
The Modsy Moment
I first came across Modsy via an Instagram ad and I thought the online design would be interesting to try. I was in a position where I just wanted to outsource the entire project and let the experts tell me what to do!
And because I was so short on time, I loved that I could do the design online and purchase all my furniture together in one cart. Modsy seemed like the perfect solution to my design problems and I hoped they would help me come up with ideas to make the most of my space.
How Modsy’s Designs Helped Stacy
I loved using Modsy! They made it so easy to upload photos of my home – all I had to do was sit back and wait.
I was blown away when I got my designs back. Modsy sent two options and I loved them both. My designer took all of my feedback into consideration and then incorporated her own touches to create a beautiful design. It was so easy to use the service and request revisions to the design to get it just right.

And when it came to shopping, I just had to click on each piece in my design and add it to my cart! There was no need to go out and look for the exact items in a store or online, which saved me a ton of valuable time. It was such a relief being able to do all the shopping and design online when I was trying to juggle so many things at once.
The Real Results
I am so happy with the way my home turned out and I purchased almost every item in my design. All of the pieces are perfect for the space but my favorite part is how it they all came together to create a room I love.

I was super impressed with Modsy’s support team. I had some challenges with pieces arriving damaged, but the team was quick to help me resolve the issues with each retailer. All in all, it was a really fun process.
Outsourcing the work was the best decision for me – it saved me so much time and even helped me come up with great ideas for the room. Details like this helped pull it all together and I couldn’t have done that on my own.
