After her mother’s death, Sandra wanted to redecorate her childhood home as a way to process her grief. Her Modsy designer helped transform her home, preparing her for the next phase of life.
Spaces: Living Room, Family Room, Office, and Bedroom
Her Style: Mod Enthusiast
When her mother passed away, Sandra was overcome with a tremendous sense of loss. She found herself alone in the home they had shared for many years and was reminded of her mother everywhere she looked. She knew that making space her own with new designs would help her with the grieving process—but she had no idea how to get started.
“I wasn’t sure what my design style was, and I had given my brother most of the furniture. I was completely stressed and overwhelmed!”
The Design Dilemma
Since she had given away most of her mother’s furniture, the home was a blank slate. But thinking through how to fill and design the main rooms proved quite difficult.
“I have limited decorating experience and honestly didn’t know how to decorate a house. I was frustrated and overwhelmed and I couldn’t decide how to furnish the rooms on my own.”

“Sandra is slowly redecorating her childhood home and wanted to make this space truly her own. My goal was to provide her with personalized designs for her space that she could bring to life over time, as her budget allowed” –Ciara R., Sandra’s Modsy Designer
The Modsy Moment
Unsure of how to begin, Sandra was relieved to hand over the reins to her Modsy designer, Ciara. In the end, she was thrilled with how Ciara virtually transformed her space.
“I was in absolute awe when I saw my Modsy designs. It was so fun to see the actual rooms in my home, designed virtually with new furniture. I loved the results!”
“Sandra liked the idea of using a lot of whites in her design—but she wanted to make sure her space didn’t feel too cold. I added pops of colors through the rugs, pillows, and some golden decor accents. Incorporating some small wood elements also helped add some warmth to her space.” – Ciara R., Sandra’s Modsy Designer
The Real Results
Sandra’s designer kept her mother’s memory alive by working with the architecture of her home—but it got a stylish upgrade that reflected Sandra’s style and needs for the space.
“Modsy changed my life. My mother was my best friend. After she died, I was not only heartbroken and grieving, but I was overwhelmed with making my childhood home my own. Every room reminded me of my mother’s presence. My Modsy designer assisted me in transforming every room, giving me a home that feels personalized and special. It’s now a place of peace. I’m grateful for the inspirational design changes that have taken place and will continue to consult with my Modsy designer to enhance the environmental peace in my home.”

“Using a white color palette in every room helped create a sense of cohesion throughout Sandra’s home—and definitely showed off her personality.
“In her home office, I added a fur rug to the reading nook to help separate this space from the rest of the office and make it its own cozy section. Since this workspace is in the basement and gets limited natural light, I also added some plants, which bring some life into the space.” –Ciara R., Sandra’s Modsy Designer
