Jason was excited to start fresh in a new city, but he was worried about making his new apartment as homey as his last one. Needing guidance to decorate his new apartment, he decided to try online design and was immediately reassured by what he saw.
Homeowner: Jason C.
Space: Living Room
My Style: Reclaimed Visionary
My dog, Sable, and I recently moved from Atlanta to Denver. I was so excited for the two of us to start a new adventure together. But I’d lived in my Atlanta apartment for eight years and knew I’d really miss living in it. It was a corner unit with floor-to-ceiling windows and lots of natural light. I’d created a layout that worked for the space, and it just felt like home.
I knew moving to a new city would be bittersweet, and I wanted to capture the magic I’d created in our last home. So I brought my favorite furniture and decor with us to our new space in Denver. I was hopeful as I packed everything up and headed to the mile-high city.
The Design Dilemma
Soon after arriving in Denver, I realized that, despite my high hopes, none of what I’d brought with me really worked in my new apartment. In fact, most of it hardly even fit in the space. The sudden realization that I’d need to redo the entire space hit me like a ton of bricks.
I know what I like when I see it. Still, I’ve never decorated an entire space from scratch on my own, and I had no idea how to make it feel functional and cohesive. The idea really stressed me out, especially because there are so many other things you have to do when starting life in a new city. I wanted a cozy space that Sable and I could enjoy and where I could entertain new friends. I was eager to have that happen sooner rather than later, so I decided to give online interior design a try.
The Modsy Moment
I feel a little silly saying this, but when I first saw my designs, all I could think was, “Wow!” I was amazed at how accurate the 3D version of my space looked compared to my actual apartment. On top of that, both initial designs were great and gave me a real shot of confidence that the design process would work. My designer even included a little bar area for hosting because I mentioned it was something I liked about my last apartment.
Within a couple of design revisions, my designer and I found the right layout and decor for my space. Seeing it all in a 3D rendering made me sure I could relax, knowing everything I ordered would be the perfect fit once it arrived in my home.
The Real Results
After landing on a design that really resonated with me, I placed my order and was amazed to see my design come together so quickly in real life. Something that would have taken me a very long time to do alone took only a few weeks with Modsy. I feel like my designer was able to upload my personality into a design that I, in turn, could download into my actual apartment!
It feels incredibly good to be only two months into my life in a new city and already have an apartment that Sable and I can call home. It’s one less thing to worry about and a very unexpected (but welcome) thing to feel very happy about.
