When Anastasia moved in with her boyfriend, she wanted an inviting design to bring both families together in a new space.
Homeowner: Dr. Anastasia M., Endodontist
Location: Bethesda, Maryland
Room: Living Room and Sunroom
Her Style: Industrial Visionary
My boyfriend and I had been seeing each other for a while when we decided to move in together. It was a big deal because not only did it mean combining both our styles, but we were also combining our families… You see, I have two kids (Lucas, who’s 10 and Michael, who’s 16) from my previous marriage. Meanwhile, Paul (that’s my BF) had been living on his own for quite some time.

The Design Dilemma
As I mentioned, Paul and I have two distinct styles—I enjoy a slightly eclectic mid-century vibe, and he is a total minimalist. So when it came to interior design, I knew it would be hard to please both of us.
But my design dilemma was more than wanting a beautiful space. I felt it was important to make the transition into our shared house as seamless as possible because I wanted our home to show my sons how well we worked together as a new family. I wanted our home to be a safe haven where we could grow together as a family, and I knew that we’d need a cohesive design to do that.

And then to top everything off, both Paul and I are busy professionals who work long hours. Neither of us had the time to scour through a million websites in search of items we’d both like. What we really needed was someone else to do all the searching for us and show us a design we could react to. But how?
The Modsy Moment
I’d heard about Modsy from a friend who used it to design her space and loved it. At first, I was excited but also, I’ll admit, a little dubious. I just had a hard time envisioning how someone could virtually design a space without setting foot in it. It sounded too good to be true. But I also knew a little professional design help would go a long way, and I really wanted my family to feel comfortable in our new house, so I gave it a try.

How Modsy Helped Anastasia
Not only was the Modsy experience fun and easy from start to finish, but we were also floored by how great the designs were. Each design our Modsy designer sent us was as thoughtful as it was beautiful—they really brought our styles together in just the way I wanted. I could tell they really cared about making a livable space for my family. It’s beautiful and really does reflect how well our styles (and us!) go together.
The Real Results
We both are so happy! My entire family uses the living room regularly. Paul and I will often listen to music together in the evenings or enjoying a drink together in the space. The kids use it for homework and hanging out too! It’s so nice to have this space that we all enjoy.
I am so glad we used Modsy for our family home is has truly become our serene sanctuary for all of us.
